Join us for an overnight or weekend experience you will not forget. Our 42 cozy, country style guest cabins provide overnight accommodations for up to 215 people. Guest rooms are located throughout our property and each have high ceilings, yellow pine interiors, private bathrooms, individual work areas and striking views of the Hill Country. Each room provides basic comforts including warm country comforters, cotton percale sheets, individual temperature controls and a private telephone. Each room also provides a functional work environment that includes wireless internet, oak desks, comfortable chairs, and reading lamps. These rooms have charm and warmth that is often missing in hotels and conference centers.
While all are decorated in Southwestern motif, each has it’s own unique combination of artwork, colorful blankets and cowhide rugs. Guest accommodations are available with king-size or twin beds.
Our overnight packages includes a cabin, meals and full use of our property and amenities. Any group on any budget can be stress free and happy while holding their retreat at The Retreat at Balcones Springs. As a wilderness retreat, we recognize the value of after-hours camaraderie. Therefore we do not provide television sets in individual rooms. However, we offer big-screen televisions in our Bluebonnet game room and lodge.
You can be assured there are several constants required by our chefs: variety and quality when it comes to their delicious home cooking and Hill Country cuisine.
The Balcones Springs chefs come from all over the world and offer experience as diverse as classically trained Culinary Institute of America graduates, to long-time corporate catering and restaurant chefs, all with an undeniable passion for food. They are uniquely qualified to design and prepare an extensive customized menu based on seasonal ingredients that offers something to delight every culinary taste, from Thai-style crabcakes and sesame-crusted salmon to chicken-fried rib-eye and hand-made empanadas.
For our health conscious guests, please enjoy these and other fine dishes prepared in “heart-healthy” manners (i.e. low-fat, low salt, low-sugar, low cholesterol). Furthermore, our chef’s have extensive experience and are happy to accommodate any special dietary restrictions including vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, organic, and plant-based.
At Balcones Springs, there is always something on our menu prepared especially for you, and for every one of our guests.
