Monarch Butterflies All Around
 
Spring is in the air at Sage Hill, and so are Monarch butterflies! We have three different kinds of species of native milkweed here on the Sage Hill property, without which, Monarchs cannot live or lay their eggs. 2017 is the biggest Monarch boom that Sage Hill has seen in a decade! Last year there were about 100, but this year, we are excited to see our Monarch butterly population already pushing 1,000.
 
Sage Hill also has their master gardener keeping a close eye on these beautiful butterflies, and tagging them. This is so we can share with guests the different types of Monarchs, as well as the development process. From where they lay their eggs, to caterpillars and chrysalises, we will be able to show visitors this process throughout the upcoming weeks.

Guess Who's Expecting?
Say Hello to Salt & Pepper


On your next visit to Sage Hill Inn & Spa, make sure and say hello to the new residents, Salt and Pepper, our Cotton Patch geese! Once a common breed throughout the south and eastern United States, cotton patch geese are now critically endangered, with fewer than 100 breeding pairs alive. Beautiful geese with happy and non-aggressive personalities, they love the Texas heat and humidity. Sage Hill is so happy to be able to provide a home for them! With the mating season upon us, one of them is "expecting" and will be laying eggs soon.  Over the next few months, they will have 14-20 babies! Congratulations are in store soon!

Here's What Food & Wine Magazine About Their Recent Visit 


A few months ago, Wine Editor Ray Isles visited Sage Hill Inn & Spa, while touring the Texas Hill Country. We were so happy happy to have him! Here's what he shared with his readers:

It’s about an hour to Sage Hill Inn, 
a beautifully renovated country lodge 
by the banks of Onion Creek, but you’ll be well placed for your first winery visit tomorrow morning. Plus, you’ll get treated to gorgeous views looking west out over Hill Country, working fireplaces in all the plush, modern rooms, and terrific food...graced with whatever’s currently growing in the inn’s gardens. Book a massage at the inn’s new spa, then sleep peacefully, in utter silence—except for those ubiquitous Texas crickets. foodandwine.com

Thanks Ray!

Clink Events Visits Sage Hill Inn

We were so excited to have the staff of Clink Events visit Sage Hill Inn for their corporate retreat!  The weather was perfect and the team took advantage of the great facilities for meeting space, break out groups, meals and socializing. 

Sage Hill Inn & Spa is the perfect setting for a corporate getaway. Centrally located in Texas and just minutes from Austin, the Inn offers a quiet and reflective setting that allows a business team to regroup, focus on their core strategies, practice team building exercises and more.

Imagine after a day of meetings your team comes out energized, stays together for dinner and enjoys the night around the fire pit, going for a hike, throwing some horse shoes or washers, or relaxing in the new 12 person hot tub. The experience has kept groups coming back for years. There has never been a better time to book your group at the Inn!
