Complimentary stay provided for review purposes.
About a month ago I fell viciously ill with the highly contagious puppy fever. I knew it was unreasonable as I already have two large dogs, a cat and a bunny; however no one is truly safe from puppy fever. In a silly attempt to cure myself I came across an ad for a red merle Aussie pup, and thus we brought home this little bundle of joy, little miss Merida.
Of course along with a puppy comes potty training, and with that comes getting up with a puppy in the middle of the night multiple times. Not to mention all the “No! No! Bad dog!” pretty frequently as little bit is quite a chewer, with her second favorite hobby of digging. Needless to say my sleep suffered a bit. Mack and I decided to give a staycation a try; after all it was our old dating anniversary.
We decided on Omni Barton Creek Resort & Spa nestled in the lovely Texas hill country, with a Summer Citrus Massage for me.
We also booked a hillside view room so our view looked something like this:
I must admit a large portion of our two night stay involved a good amount of catch up sleep, but eventually it seemed such a shame to let the full resort go to waste. We got out of bed and headed down to the 8212 Wine Bar & Grill for some brunch. My hangar steak salad with tomato jam and blue cheese was absolutely delicious in our table yet again set elegantly against floor to ceiling windows of the beautiful hill country.
Now we were really starting to relax and feel like we were on vacation. Since this was primarily a golf resort, and we are not at all golfers, we opted for some miniature golf action where we discovered if there was going to be a golfer between the two of us it would probably be me. Still excited from my ‘golf’ win I headed to the spa.
The spa here was truly lovely, several serene lounging areas, a wet and dry sauna, and an impressive soaking pool.
The massage was wonderful, staff friendly, and even the locker room was snazzy. I found Mack down in the pool and joined in the lagoon like Jacuzzi for and evening swim. We decided to stay in and order room service as to not disrupt my super tranquil level of relaxation. Instead of fine dining, what could be better than ordering just a bit of some guilty pleasure items, bring on the pizza and grilled cheese! Both were exceptional and even elevated despite two grown adults ordering off the kids menu at 11pm. We left the next day truly refreshed and feeling just as vacationed as if we had traveled to another city. Our first staycation thanks to Omni Barton Creek was a success!
