The Greening of a Texas Hill Country Bed and Breakfast
As you may or may not know the Inn Above Onion Creek is a member of "Green Hotels" an organization that promotes eco-friendly practices in the hospitality industry. As a result we are always looking for ways to be "greener" here at the Inn. Nope, we haven't gotten more eco-friendly but things are definitely much greener after the recent rain storms that hit the Texas hill country last week. The native Texas grasses have started growing again and the flowers in the gardens and in the courtyard are in full bloom!
We are happy to to report that the butterflies are in full force as well. Monarchs, Gulf Fritillaries, Queens, and various Swallowtails have been fluttering around the Inn grounds and laying eggs for the next generation of beautiful butterflies. With the cooler fall temperatures now is a great time to visit the Inn Above Onion Creek and check out the great Texas hill Country attractions. We still have availability for the weekend of Sept. 25-26, take a look at our availability calendar to see if your favorite room is available.
