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.
We have such talented guests that visit the Inn Above Onion Creek. Carl and Sonia Muniz were at the Inn this weekend to celebrate their 10th anniversary. Upon checking out Carl had asked if we had any vines that he could cut to make a cross to commemorate his anniversary and stay here at the Inn. Well, we have no shortage of vines here with our wonderful groundskeeper Isabel taking care of things. Carl quickly cut some passion vine and within 5 minutes Sonia had crafted this beautiful cross. Congratulations on your 10 years together!
We are taking advantage of a few slow days here at the Inn Above Onion Creek by giving the rooms a fresh coat of paint. We recently finished the common areas, i.e. the library, dining room and kitchen and now we've made our way to the rooms. Make your reservation today so you can be the first to ding up the paint in your favorite room!
Guests have been taking advantage of all the great shopping here in the Texas hill country. Prime and Tanger outlet malls are a short 20 minutes from the Inn Above Onion Creek and with all the quaint shops in Wimberley and Gruene there are endless opportunities to find that last minute Christmas gift. And remember we will still have our free gift wrapping special going on. Book a room during the month of December and receive free gift wrapping for five presents.
On October 1st the new Seton-Hays hospital opened in Kyle, Texas. It's a beautiful new hospital serving the Hays county area and we are very proud it is in our home town. Last night at the Inn Above Onion Creek the Seton-Hays Foundation held a board meeting in our library followed by a party with "friends of Seton". A wide selection of delicious appetizers were served to the 50 guests in attendance prepared by our wonderful kitchen staff. Holiday cheer was in the air as the guests mingled and forged new friendships. The celebration was hosted by our very own assistant innkeeper Mary Ann Mattis and Tom Searcy, our neighbor to the West (pictured above). Both are directors for the Seton-Hays foundation. We welcome our new friends at Seton-Hays.
An interesting phenomenon occurred with the frost we received this morning. Overnight a small type of plant seemed to build a coat of ice for protection. The "coats" of ice are actually hollow and they resemble a tee-pee or igloo that has been built around the base of the stem. During breakfast at the Inn Above Onion Creek the guests were commenting on this strange happening and nobody had ever seen anything like it. Have any of you? If so we'd love to know about this process.
Here you can see Mary Ann decorating our newly arrived Christmas tree. December is a great time to visit the Inn Above Onion Creek. Our rooms are a fantastic retreat from the cold and great place to relax from the daily grind. After arrival settle in to your room where a toasty fire can warm you up as you enjoy the beautiful hill country views. Grab a movie from the library and hop into one of our feather beds and just relax until 6pm when you can head down to the dining room for a tasty 3 course dinner. After dinner retire to the room where a whirlpool bath will get you ready for a wonderful night sleep. Sound relaxing? Give us a call for a last minute escape to the Inn Above Onion Creek.
