Time to Relax
Short-term, long-term, or any span of time in between, the comforts in our I Love Dripping Springs vacation escapes will bring you to new states of relaxation. You work hard every day of your life, in your jobs, in your chores at home, and in the millions of little things you have to do with family and friends, and you deserve this time to put on the brakes. Step into spaces that invite you to kick off your shoes, plop down on soft sofas and chairs, and prop your feet up as you watch state of the art televisions, read for hours in comfortable chairs placed where the lighting is best, and feel the noises in your brain begin to quiet. Many of our short-term rentals offer multiple seating areas in and outside the home, so take advantage of these moments, and sit down, relax, and rest whenever the mood strike. The dining rooms provide more time for relaxation, serving as the center of family entertainment, and although they can be used for many purposes, their main use will be for connection. Here is where plans will be made, where dad jokes will be told, and snacks, meals, and beverages will be consumed, but so much more happens in these “meeting” spaces and families and friends will be drawn closer together during their moments at the tables. Kitchens are a mixture of modern and cozy, featuring professional quality appliances, stone countertops, and custom cabinetry that add beauty and functionality to the space. Children will be inspired to pull up a stool to expansive breakfast bars and chat up the cook of the day while they munch on cookies or brownies and parents will share secrets by the light of the stove, as they scrounge through the refrigerator looking for a late-night snack.
Travelers want more from their vacation accommodations, and I Love Dripping Springs delivers more. We understand that you want relaxation and comfort, but you also want to play and not be bored, and the options to keep you busy and engaged are plentiful! Large backyards can offer outdoor kitchens, barbecue grills, and multiple places to sit and relax. Crystal-clear swimming pools may be heated for an additional fee in the winter months, and hot tubs on decks under the open sky provide romance and practicality; aching muscles can be soothed by the bubbling jets, letting you start out the next day adventure’s feeling refreshed and renewed. Cornball, putting greens, and other outdoor games add fun to your getaway, and hiking trails through the acreage that surrounds the homes will give you a new appreciation of the Texas countryside.
Inside, game rooms are filled with a mixture of arcade games, gaming consoles, and even full-sized game tables. Watch television in between turns at the pool table or show your dad your skills at Mario Kart or Halo or whatever video game you have perfected whenever you like. The board games that can often be found on the shelves or in the cabinets in the short-term vacation rental you chose to make your own offer a way to unplug and still have fun, and if you really want to enjoy a few hours of old school entertainment, the living room spaces are large enough to play a rousing game of charades in!
The Luxury of Sleep
It is always surprising how tired relaxing and playing can make you and when it comes time to shut down the homestead, turn off the lights, and retreat to the comfort of our tranquil bedrooms, we expect that these moments might just be the ones you remember best. Climb into bed with the little ones snuggled up against you and read them the stories they love, remembering that they won’t stay this little forever and loving how sweet and innocent they look when their eyelashes brush against their flush cheeks and they snuggle in closer in their sleep. Run a hot bath, adding a liberal dose of the fragrant oils you love, and slip beneath the water with a glass of wine in hand and soft music playing, lulling yourself into a relaxed state that will make sleep easier to attain.
Our bedrooms, anchored by strong and sturdy beds topped with premium mattresses and silky soft linens, also offer private entrances to patios and decks, sitting areas to enjoy with a cup of coffee each morning, and large televisions hanging on the wall opposite the bed; guests can choose to read themselves to sleep, propped against the headboard or laughing at the antics of Rachel and Ross in the show none of us can get enough of! Rise early in the morning and step outside to watch the sun rise, or pull the curtains or blinds tightly shut and sleep as late as you like. There are no rules on vacation, other than have fun, relax a lot, and enjoy doing whatever you want, when you want!
Adventures in Dripping Springs
Now that you have explored the amenities, luxuries, and comforts we offer in our I Love Dripping Springs short-term vacation rentals, it is time to venture out and explore all the fun you can have in town. Dripping Springs is known for its stunning Hill Country landscapes, and hiking along the trails that cut through the countryside can be an exciting adventure, but for those who prefer less strenuous adventures, the shops of downtown Dripping Springs can provide just the thing! Mercer Street is where the story of our Texas town began and its history and charm never fails to impress, offering a glimpse back in time as well as shops and stores filled with treasures you won’t want to pass by. Starrs on Mercer is a boutique shop offering clothing, jewelry, and a plethora of merchandise that could make beautiful gifts for the beautiful people in your life. Souls old and young will become obsessed with the clothing found at Vintage Soul, and the Curated Cottage is filled with home accessories large and small that you will NEED to take home with you!
