"One of the Top 5 Holiday escapes near Houston, according to CBS Houston!"

"If you are looking for a perfect Hillside Country Retreat, this is the place to be. Just 30 minutes from the Austin airport, this haven is close to wineries including those located in the Texas Hill Country and Bell Springs. On site it allows guests to fish in its private ponds, go swimming and hiking and even cozy up by the fire pit for some marshmallows and hot dogs- to make the holiday as traditional or out of the box as you and yours desire this year."
