Luxury Lodges and Mouthwatering Cuisine
What’s better than coming home from a day of hiking to a hot stone massage, a soak in a bubbly natural hot spring, a good book curled up by a crackling fire and a restful night’s sleep in a cozy log-hewn bed? How about topping it off with a sumptuous meal made by expert chefs with fresh, regional fare and a glass of fine local wine?
If you ask us, nothing.
We’ve found some gems
At Austin Adventures, we’re constantly searching for the best accommodations each of our destinations has to offer. And by “best” we don’t necessarily mean the most exclusive, the biggest or most expensive…we look instead for intimate, locally run inns, lodges, B&Bs and resorts whose unique charm and history give our guests a true feel for the region. Each of our properties offers surprising luxury with an absence of pretension. From claw-foot tubs to wood-fried saunas and overstuffed pillows, we’ll indulge you in all the comforts…and then some.
A true taste of local flavor
Half the fun of an Austin Adventures vacation is our mouth-watering food! Jump-start each day with a delicious, high-energy breakfast. In the evening, it’s a 5-star restaurant, a campfire barbecue, a trip to a local hotspot or a candle-lit dinner in a private wine cellar. Typically, you’ll order exactly what you want, right off the menu. A variety of selections will easily accommodate all diets, even for the pickiest of eaters. And if you enjoy a fine wine or local microbrew at the close of your day, you’ve come to the right place.
Even our trailside lunches are something special
Who’d have thought boxed lunches and trail mix could be gourmet? Our guides know exactly where to find farm-fresh produce, homemade breads, hand-churned ice cream and wood-fired pizza. Enjoy artfully prepared picnics and snacks in the most remote and loveliest places.
