We took a trip to Texas for the first time and spent a few days at the Hillside Acres Retreat. This place was truly amazing. The cabins were first class in every way. They were spotless, comfortable and beautifully rustic. They were designed with the smallest details considered to making our stay very comfortable and relaxing.
The grounds were kept up and even just sitting on the porch reading and listening to the birds was very enjoyable in and of itself.
The location was away from the hustle and bustle of the big cites but close enough to drive into nearby towns and enjoy local restaurants like the famous Salt Lick.
We rode through Johnson City and saw where President Johnson grew up and had his western white house. We also passed many vineyards as we took a day trip to Fredericksburg,a beautiful small town with terrific restaurants.
Just at the end of the road near the cabins was Perernalas State Park where we went hiking and spent time sunning and climbing of the rocks by the river.
This was a great stop and if we ever get back to Texas this will be a place we will stay and enjoy the quiet and attractions that we missed the first time around.
