Located northwest of Dripping Springs off Fitzhugh Road, Hill Country Casitas is a picturesque hideaway perfect for an escape from the hustle and bustle. The Casitas are super close to popular nearby attractions like Hawk’s Shadow Winery, which is less than a mile down a quiet country road. Situated on 13 acres, you have your choice of 10 luxurious cabins that are spaced out among the rolling hills of the Texas Hill Country. Just down the road, you’ll find 12 Fox Brewing Co. as well as Pedernales Falls State Park. Casita amenities include a kitchen with a full-size fridge and freezer, two-burner cook-top, microwave, kitchen basics like flatware and dishes, and appliances, plus a full line of luxurious bath products, and essentially everything you need to enjoy a quiet and relaxing weekend in the Texas Hill Country.

Arbor House

Stay at the Arbor House and experience one-of-a-kind themed tree houses for a truly special adventure. Arbor House consists of four different tree houses that sit in a canopy of trees eight feet off the ground. Each treehouse is complete with a kitchenette and spectacular views of the Texas Hill Country. Gaze at the hills through picture windows or from lounge chairs on the spacious decks or relax in a wooden porch swing under the cabins by the pond, waterfall, and stream. You can even fire up the barbecue grill in the evening for a picnic under the stars or play a round of corn hole.

Stay in and make the Arbor House your base camp for a full and eventful weekend or venture out and discover Pedernales Falls State Park - make sure to hop online and make reservations before you visit. After a hike and a swim, visit an area winery, brewery or distillery like nearby Bell Springs Winery + Brewery where you can enjoy a glass of wine or beer or enjoy a bite from the delcious food truck.

If whimsical, magical, and quirky are characteristics that appeal to you, then you must stay at Havenwald, a quiet retreat tucked in the hills, about 10 minutes from downtown Dripping Springs.
