Sweet Escapes

Romantic Getaways in the Texas Hill Country

A moonlit stroll holding hands on a wooded trail with fireflies dancing in the air while gazing up at the stars in wonder. Dancing cheek-to-cheek to a slow melody, getting lost in the moment as you hold your loved one close. Sharing a romantic dinner, letting your ankles tangle together beneath the tables as the candlelight dances in their eyes. Floating in a hot tub under the moon, sipping champagne, whispering sweet nothings to each other with only the mountains around to hear. February is the month of love, and these "Hallmark" moments can be a reality.

Romance is in the air, and if you need inspiration for a liaison of love, the Hill Country is calling. Fine dining, candlelight, Jacuzzis…everything needed for a meaningful vacation of love.

Why not write your love story surrounded by history? The Gruene Mansion Inn, located in Gruene, Texas, is a beautiful boutique hotel with elegant yet rustic suites overlooking the scenic Guadalupe River. For your additional pleasure, the oldest dance hall in Texas is just a short walk for some romantic cheek-to-cheek dancing or even a little saucy two-stepping to set the mood.

The Escondida Resort in Medina, Texas is an adults-only, upscale bed and breakfast where romance unfolds. For a peaceful escape with soothing mountain views surrounded by nature and a full-service onsite spa., this is the ultimate romantic getaway. Located on 125 acres, the Escondida Resort can provide desired privacy, loaded with amenities for a dreamy stay.

If your idea of relaxing is an inclusive, wellness-centered retreat, then consider checking into The Miraval in Austin, Texas. With a focus on spiritual and mental well-being, there is a myriad of options from which to choose daily, including many activities, all with the intention of increasing your personal sense of health and well-being. What’s nicer than a day together exploring your inner being in a soothing and rejuvenating spa resort surrounded with nature?

In the month of love, take your romance on the road, and see all that the Texas Hill Country has to offer. February weather is ideal for exploring, often temperate with a slight chill, perfect for snuggling up together in front of a roaring fire in a hillside resort or cuddling under a cozy duvet on a riverside balcony as you sip hot coffee. 

It's hard to think of life as a love story, but it's just that. A lifetime of chapters that are written by each moment, each person, and each memory. During this month, be encouraged to write a story that is memorable, romantic, and inspiring. The Texas Hill Country offers so much in the way of adventure, music, and magic.  It just requires a short trip. The time spent doesn't have to be in February, but planning can start now for a trip in the Spring, Summer, or even Fall. Each season offers an opportunity to create a moment in life that's unforgettable. You submitted photos of your time making memories, and we are happy to share them!
