Located in the Hill Country just west of Austin, Smythwick Castle & Lodge is a country castle on 10 acres that are filled with waterfalls, ponds and grand old Oak trees. We have worked hard to keep the property as natural as possible. The Castle offers a picturesque setting for a lavish and elegant wedding day, anniversary or weekend with friends and family. Stone fireplaces, a turret and unique old world brick courtyard with an elegant fountain will add a romantic ambiance to any celebration. The more formal Grand Hall with its crystal Chandeliers, large stone fireplace, picture windows and beautiful draperies lends itself to all occasions. Our beautiful Gazebo, roses, towering Oaks and Peacocks will make any occasion special. Then slip into our hot tub and later into one ...Located in the Hill Country just west of Austin, Smythwick Castle & Lodge is a country castle on 10 acres that are filled with waterfalls, ponds and grand old Oak trees.

I booked this venue for an adult tea party/birthday party, and it was fantastic! We didn't stay in any of the rooms, but they looked so comfortable and relaxing. Laura is a very gracious and accommodating host. The parking was a bit confusing and inconvenient...More
