Looking for a fun and romantic way to bring in the New Year? Come stay at the Inn Above Onion Creek. We've been booked for months but we had a last minute cancellation in the Schlemmer room. Surf and Turf for New Year's Eve Dinner.
-Bootsie the Cat
As you can see I've decided to leave the Inn for a few days and take a summer job job selling fireworks. My favorite type of fireworks you ask? Black Cat of course. I hope you all have a safe and fun Fourth of July! Please remember it's very dry here in Texas and it's a good idea to have a fire extinguisher handy when shooting off fireworks.
Dear Bootsie: I want to plan a hill country family reunion, can you do anything special for us?
Dear Guest: Funny you ask that because we just had a Family Getaway here at the Inn. The Family booked the entire Inn for a Birthday party and family reunion. They had a wonderful time! They relaxed at the pool, played games, and enjoyed many of the hill country attractions. They were able to select their menus while here and Chef Adrian did a fabulous Crawfish Boil one night. It smelled so yummy but they didn't seem to want to share with Nigel and me. I did hear that Nigel got caught trying out the butter though. Check out this great picture of all the delicious food! Makes me hungry! Call us and we'll talk about what special things we can plan for your next hill country family getaway!
Dear Bootsie: When are the Butterflies returning to the Inn?
Dear Guest: I went looking for caterpillars yesterday but I didn't find any.The Monarchs should be returning shortly, along with all of the other beautiful species. I just love laying in the courtyard and watching all the pretty butterflies pollinating the flowers.
Dear Bootsie: The change of seasons has really wreaked havoc on my skin. What should I do?
Bootsie: Dear Guest, I find that a granite scrub really helps exfoliate my skin and helps remove shedding hair. Amy gives me a brisk rub, followed by a relaxing hot stone treatment, and my coat and skin feel GREAT! While napping I've heard various guests returning from the spa say that the salt polish really softened their skin and that they really liked the hot stone treatment. Why not give it a try.
Bootsie's Thought of the Week: Spa treatments offer grooming without the hairballs.
Dear Bootsie: What can I do at the Inn?
Bootsie: I often hear Don and Amy answering questions about what there is to do at the inn. They tell people about the great wineries in the area, the excellent shopping and the beautiful parks, but I rarely hear them mention napping. I've requested that they add it to the activities list on the website. Don can use the GPS to map out my favorite napping spots for you.Bootsie's Weekly Advice: Always take a nap before making any decisions.
