Happy Holidays from all of us at Sage Hill Inn & Spa

As yet another year draws to a close I would like to thank you once again for being a guest of Sage Hill Inn & Spa. Sage Hill Inn has expanded over the years, always trying to take our property up to the next level to offer a unique experience to our guest. This year we have touched up all the small details in many of our rooms, expanded our gardens and orchard, given a few rescue bees a new home and received some heritage Cotton Patch geese to do our part to preserve this bit of Americana. In addtion, the Inn continues to recieve countless awards, including  this year from TripAdvisor, Select Registry, Vogue and many other publications. We do know that we couldn’t do what we do without each and every single guest that we get the pleasure of caring for while you are here. I can speak for each employee here when I say that we have the best guests and are lucky to be able to work here to serve you. We hope to see each of your faces again here soon.
Happy Holidays & Kindest Regards,

Justin “Raif” Raiford 
General Manager

Sage Hill Inn & Spa 
Honey for the Holidays

Sage Hill Inn & Spa is now home to two bee hives, roughly 50-70k bees! Their caretaker and master beekeeper is Sage Hill's very own General Manager Raif. He checks on them every other week to make sure there are no pests in the hives.
This season the queen has laid many eggs and workers are busy collecting pollen and nectar. Since Sage Hill has plenty of wildflowers year round, the bees are very happy. During the cold months some of the workers die off and all of the males are thrown out of the hive leaving only the females to keep the queen warm and safe.
Central Texas gets one honey flow in late spring and early summer and then again in fall when the fall wildflowers are in bloom. The average per hive is 25-30 lbs of honey, sometimes up to 100 lbs. Sage Hill will harvest again in early summer and fall of 2017. 
Sage Hill's queen bee has stopped laying for the time being and won’t lay again until early February. SInce this year was Sage Hill's first harvest, the honey and wax collection has been minimal. However, next spring and summer, Sage Hill should have plenty of happy bees making lots of honey to use in the Garden Spa for face and hair masks and for the wax used for hand and foot dips. In the kitchen at the Sage Hill Restaurant, the honey is used to make sweets, vinaigrettes and to sweeten tea.
