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!

Sage Hill Inn & Spa's Garden Boasts Bountiful Spring Offerings

The kitchen at the Sage Hill Restaurant is extremely happy with the garden boasting a daily harvest of lettuces, swiss chard, radishes, beets, edible flowers and herbs such as thyme, mint, chives, parsley, cilantro and lemon balm. Over the next two months broccoli, kale, cabbage, cauliflower and brussel sprouts will be harvested. 
The garden also now has ten different varieties of heirloom tomatoes that have been planted and are growing amazingly. 
Come see the Icelandic poppies and Pacific Giant Delphiniums, in full bloom, not to mention the blue bonnets have made their annual arrival!  Welcome Spring!

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!
