Described as a “Western Zen” bed and breakfast, Casa del Sol lies in a cozy corner of Texas Hill Country. With a pool and two Jacuzzis overlooking Lake Travis, the atmosphere will invite you to relax. Lodging options here include four uniquely designed bedrooms and a restored 1960s Airstream trailer. After spending a peaceful morning in the hills, check out Austin’s Downtown, which is only 30 minutes away by car.

Just off South Congress Avenue, the Park Lane Guest House is a unique, small home that boasts a connection with its natural environment. The bed and breakfast features four private cottages, each solar-powered and with organic, handmade beds. Take a dip or relax near the natural pool at the center of the grounds; it looks like a smaller version of Austin’s famous Barton Springs Pool. It also offers a daily cooked-to-order vegetarian breakfast.

La Villa Vista will show you a side of the Central Texas region that you may not realize exists. Positioned atop the rolling green Texas Hill Country that surrounds the natural wonder of Lake Travis, La Villa Vista has views reminiscent of those along the Greek Mediterranean coast. This hillside mansion includes gorgeous tile floors plus a pool that overlooks the lake and is filled with natural light throughout the day. While it’s only a 30-minute, scenic drive away from Downtown Austin, it’s far enough from the city lights that you’ll get to enjoy incredible views of the stars at night.
