This Hill Country Resort Proves That Ranch Life Can Be Luxurious

May 9, 2017
We know what you are thinking: How are dusty cattle drives and campfire cookouts anywhere near luxurious? Situated in the middle of Texas Hill Country, the family owned Inn at Dos Brisas offers amenities and activities that have guests raving on TripAdvisor with nearly perfect scores.

With only nine casitas and haciendas on property, guest rooms feel private and spacious, and no attention to detail is spared -- especially in the master of all master baths.

You get to pick: a Casita with French doors and a private patio or a Hacienda with soaring cathedral ceilings, full-size living room and a private plunge pool -- don’t worry, you get a personal golf cart with both.

When we describe the cuisine as farm-to-table, we quite literally mean the inn’s 42 acres of farmland. Its authentically organic menu, bar-setting service and sunset views to match are all reasons why this is the only Forbes 5-star restaurant in Texas.

Wine Spectator awarded the property Best of Award of Excellence, a prestigious badge of honor owed to its 7,000-bottle wine cellar.

Luxury ranch equals horses, right? Here you get to explore the resort on a carriage tour or take a riding lesson at the second largest privately owned indoor riding arena in Texas.

If riding a horse in not your thing, you can also arrange a day of clay shooting lessons or enjoy an afternoon of fishing by one of the fully stocked ponds.

For yogis and spa lovers, the inn brings relaxation to the comfort of your Casita or Hacienda. That means certified yoga instructors will lead your practice on your own patio, or you can relax with a rejuvenating massage by your private plunge pool.

Top off your stay with a romantic sunset picnic by the lake or hit up the daily sundown reception, which includes wine and cheese from 4:30-5:30 p.m.
