We all realize that good things can come in small packages, but what you may not know is that this phrase includes vacation getaways as well! No, we aren’t talking about staying in a Tiny House with barely enough room for you, let alone your family. We are talking about those brief getaways we take throughout the year, the three-day weekends (or sometimes even two-day escapes) where we just take some personal time to breathe, relax, and explore something different than our cubicle walls or at home office. These escapes are important to our peace of mind, helping us smooth out the tattered edges of our souls, and when you choose Dripping Springs for your time out from real life, the benefits multiply—especially when you go with your first instinct of choosing one of our I Love Dripping Springs short-term sanctuaries in which to relax and recharge, discovering that comfort comes in all sizes and shapes! There are 4,320 minutes in every three-day weekend and this guide will help you fill every single one with happiness, purpose, and intent during your Texas weekend trip to our favorite place on earth!
Did You Feel It?
Our bodies and minds go through an actual physiological change on vacation, even when that vacation only lasts two or three days. Your heart beat slows, your skin cools down, and your brain is suddenly quiet and at rest! (When was the last time you remember that happening?) And when you step inside our I Love Dripping Springs sanctuaries for the first time, you will feel all of the above and so much more. Feel your troubles drop from your shoulders as you look around at the shelter you will call yours over the weekend. Offering living rooms that invite you to binge watch your favorite shows and movies on cool rainy nights with a fire burning merrily in the fireplace, you won’t even mind missing the last few minutes of the show you were watching after drifting off into an impromptu nap on sofas that are plush and comfortable! Home is where the heart is, and our dining rooms are the actual heart of our homes, serving multiple purposes as families play games, devour meals, or simply sit in the quiet of the early morning, sipping coffee as the world comes to life all around. Anchored by large tables and surrounded by chairs that are comfortable even after a four-hour Monopoly marathon, the memories made in these rooms will be of family, laughter, and love! The kitchens of our sanctuaries are gourmet models, designed to bring joy into your life as you chop, sauté, and simmer to your heart’s content. Upgraded appliances, stone countertops, and an overall ambience of home and cheer destined to make you wish your stay was longer than just a weekend! If you do stay longer check out our short-term Dripping Springs homes for rent or our short-term rentals in Texas Hill Country.
The Moments That Matter
A weekend getaway gives you a chance to pause the stress you may feel in real life and refill the peaceful coffers of your soul, and our I Love Dripping Springs escapes are designed to do just that! When was the last time you had the opportunity to sit and read for hours, not noticing that the sun has completed another circuit until the room you were in was too dark to read? Our homes are built to give you those moments again, and if you find that perfect spot in which to read, we hope you take full advantage of your weekend leisure time. Read in the chair by the window until you can’t see, then turn on the lights and read until it is time to go to bed. If you haven’t finished your book yet, take it with you to the soaking tub you may find in the en suite bath, pouring a glass of wine, adding fragrant oils to the water, and stream soft music to fill in the silence of these beautiful moments. Take that book to bed, prop yourself against pillows or the padded headboard, and read until your eyes can’t stay open another second; you work hard and deserve this escape into the words written by your favorite author! Maybe you will dream about that book, cozily tucked away between silky soft linens, the premium mattress and pillow cradling your body perfectly and when you awake the next morning, you can always continue where you left off!
Other guests may enjoy the acreage that accompanies many of our Dripping Springs sanctuaries, spending their downtime communing with nature as they hike along trails, relax on hammocks, or simply sit, sip, and savor another stunning sunset on the back deck of their property. On quiet evenings, a timid doe and her fawn may step out of the trees, tempted by the green grass of your sanctuary, so keep your camera handy, just in case! Enjoy a pool party with the family, a Texas barbecue of juicy meats cooked to perfection on the grill or gather round the firepit roasting marshmallows and telling ghost stories late into the night. Every minute of your weekend is destined to be spent making memories that you will never forget and although you may wish you had more time to spend in paradise, you can’t help but be grateful for the time you do have!
Entertainment Options Abound
It’s true, you may not have much time to experience all the fun that Dripping Springs and the surrounding towns supply, but that doesn’t mean you won’t enjoy yourself! Our homes are designed to be an integral part of the vacation experience, and even if you came across country and never left the borders of your sanctuary, you would still come away at the end of the weekend with a feeling that this all was well in your vacation world! Sit on porch swings sharing secrets with your bride of 50 years or take another nap in a hammock strung between two trees in the backyard. Practice your putting skills, your cannonball splashes, and your beanbag tosses, or sit and sip under the shade of a covered patio watching the sun set over the stunning Texas Hill Country landscape. Larger properties may offer hiking trails that allow guests to get up close and personal with the beauty of nature and bubbling creeks that your kids will end up playing in and around, looking for tadpoles, frogs, and other small creatures that live at water’s edge. At sunset, families of deer may wander close to the perimeter of the yard, delicately munching at the grass beneath them before leaping away at the sound of branch cracking or a bird chirping. Inside you may find game rooms with pool, foosball, or ping pong tables or theater rooms with leather recliners and a super-sized screen that makes you feel as if you are a part of the action you are watching!
Happy Dreams and Fascinating Adventures On Your Texas Weekend Trip
Spending some of your precious minutes at the local wineries and distilleries is destined to be a highlight of a weekend overflowing with them and can include a visit to the Bell Springs Winery and Treaty Oak Distilling. Dinners at Epicure, shopping at Vintage Soul, and family fun days at Dreamland Dripping Springs will all make this Dripping Springs weekend trip special, but coming home each night to sleep and dream in our cloud soft beds will make the weekend shine even brighter.
