Texas Monthly Review Sage Hill Inn & Spa


…..only thirty miles from Austin but light-years outside its orbit. The 88 acres feature two historic-looking buildings and several cottages hidden in the Hill Country underbrush, giving you the feeling of a bygone, more rustic time. But this is a carefully crafted illusion. At night, I sank into a pillow-top mattress. In the afternoon, I dozed off in my room’s whirlpool tub. A grueling stroll along the hiking trails would no doubt require a visit to the spa, located in a quaint tin-roofed building next to beds of sunflowers. 

You needn’t be an overnight guest to spot a raccoon or fox, poke around the vegetable gardens, hear the little "tzip" of a hummingbird’s wings along a gravel path, or sit around the fire pit as twilight falls, a blanket across your lap, soaking up the vision of a simpler life. You’ll be back to your real one soon enough.

Let Sage Hill Inn & Spa Host Your Next Event

Sage Hill Inn & Spa is the ideal location for events with up to 150 guests. We are situated on 90 acres that is surrounded on three sides by over 2,000 acres of City of Austin open space, conservation land and a private ranch, creating a Hill Country oasis only minutes from downtown Austin. We offer a range of facilities that have been host to countless weddings, corporate events, retreats, private parties and even smaller group getaways. Our staff can help you plan a range of options to make sure your event is tailored just the way you like it.

Weddings

The Inn hosts dozens of weddings every year and has been featured several times by Style Me Pretty and Jenny De Marco. With our recent property-wide overhaul the Inn is now in a better place than ever to provide couples with the perfect place to tie the knot. Improved guest rooms, facilities and grounds along with our new Garden Spa ensure that the bride and groom and all of their guests have everything they need to have the wedding of lifetime.

Corporate Retreats


In 2013 the inn hosted nearly seventy five midweek corporate retreats – the majority from repeat businesses. Because of it’s central location close to many major Texas cities and being only minutes from downtown Austin, all while providing a quite and reflective setting to focus on the business at hand, the inn is well known as a go to location for businesses that want to get the team focused on important business while letting the staff attend to your every need. 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. Along with a host of property-wide improvements this past year, we also remodeled our main meeting room, and renovated a larger guest unit to cater to groups. There has never been a better time to book your group at the Inn!

Life by Lee Shares her Magical Stay at Sage Hill Inn & Spa


Here's what lifestyle blogger Life by Lee had to say about Sage Hill Inn & Spa!

 Sage Hill Inn is a quiet little bed & breakfast about 25 minutes from downtown Austin. It’s tucked away in the middle of the Texas Hill Country, and it’s the perfect spot for a little romantic getaway. The inn has a very rustic-chic vibe, and you feel at ease as soon as you pull up. A big thank you to my mother-in-law for watching Noah for the night so we could get away and relax.

After we checked in at the front desk, we were lead to our adorable suite. We stayed in the Nance Suite. It’s known for the amazing bath tub with a view. It’s amazing! I could literally take a bath for hours and just stare out the window. It’s extremley peaceful, especially with a glass of wine in your hand #treatyourself!
After we unpacked and relaxed in the suite for a bit, we headed to dinner. We found our name at a table with another couple. They were celebrating their anniversary, and were such nice people. We had an amazing dinner, and great conversation. Read more here.

DRIVING FROM DALLAS? ZAGAT RECOMMENDS 
DAY TRIP RESTAURANTS WORTH THE DRIVE


Here's what writer Stephen Lindsey had to say about Sage Hill Inn & Spa:

Kyle: Sage Hill Inn & Spa
Sure, you can visit the restaurant at this quaint inn with killer views of the sprawling, underpopulated Hill Country without staying on the 88-acre property, but availability is limited. So why not book an overnight stay in one of the rooms, suites or private cottages to guarantee two great meals each day?

Must-order: 
 Chef Kristen Abram works hard to bring a true farm-to-table experience with an ever-changing daily menu utilizing locally sourced ingredients for every component of her meals. A three-course dinner and full hot breakfast (pictured above) are included with every overnight booking and menus are posted the week prior.

A non-food reason to drive: 
There's no need to plan any other excursions because you can relax away an afternoon in the pool, go on a hike to the creek or cozy up in the small spa.

Austin Food Magazine Recommends Sage Hill Inn & Spa Getaway 


Photo Courtesy Austin Food Magazine

Austin Food Magazine editor Hayden Walker had much to say about his recent weekend stay, raving about the accommodations, food and restful stay.

Summer is is almost here and travel season beckons. It’s been a tough year for a lot of people so far and you just can’t wait to get out of town for vacation or at least a little getaway for the weekend.  Leaving town for a peaceful getaway is an absolute priority but you’re probably in no mood for loud children or large crowds. After the year you’ve had so far you probably desire something a peaceful, blissful getaway with your lover or spouse.  

Serenity isn’t as far as away as you may think. 
 In fact, it’s just a 30 minute drive from Austin.

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!
