My Friend Susan, a hypnotist friend of mine, lives in Houston and I live in Dallas. We've been trying to find a place to meet mid way for about 4 years for a weekend or an overnight "girl's vacation" together. After extensive searching....
Susan found The Crossings in Austin, a spa set atop a beautiful hill overlooking Lake Travis. We saw the pictures on the site and Susan negotiated a discount (since it was a slow time) and off we went!
WHEN I FIND SOMETHING I LIKE....I LIKE TO TELL PEOPLE ABOUT IT!
The pictures on the website didn't do this awesome place justice! It was gorgeous! They had walking trails, great food, a library, a scupture exhibit, beautiful views, a labarinth, a beautiful sanctuary, clasess such as yoga, a giant dream catcher to dream under and more!
The Spa offered all sorts of scrubs and massages. We opted for an orange blossom massage followed by a hot rock thingy and feet wrapped in herbal hot towels. Awesome! They also had a dry sauna, steam room and a big terrific hot tub. This place rocks and is all set in nature with birds, butterflys, squirrels, deer and more. We are definitely going back! It was, well, hypnotic!
So if you are looking for a vacation, meeting place for corporate events, a relaxing spa, outdoor beauty, a romantic get-a-way, a honey-moon, an excursion for the weekend, a place to hold a retreat, or just a reasonably priced gorgeous get a way in Texas hill country. This is the place.
Here is the link. You will just think you have died and gone to Texas heaven: http://www.thecrossingsaustin.com/about/
PS...other things a liked: Beautiful scuptures on the grounds, the best vegetarian entree's I've ever had, great coffee, a large endlessly hot shower in the room with a bench in it, no phone or tv in the room, and most of all, un-snooty people running the place. This place is way more relaxed and down to earth than other spas I've heard about and been to. Really lovely place just built about 5 years ago.
Are you hypnotized yet?
