Serenity Farmhouse Inn Coupons and Deals
Romantic Hideaway amid Vineyards and 20 Acres of Verdant Hills A secluded road leads to Serenity Farmhouse Inn's main building, where the front porch looks out on more than 20 acres of hills dotted with wildflowers and farm animals. The pastoral setting in Texas Hill Country has a storybook quality that extends to its cottages, which are decorated with fresh flowers and vintage furnishings. Here, you might see a small cow, a donkey, or other farm animals grazing in the courtyard. It’s a charming setting for a romantic getaway, and this deal includes complimentary wine as well as hors d'oeuvres at a local bistro. Each cottage is outfitted with a spacious, heart-shaped whirlpool tub. In the White Willow cottage, willow branches frame a canopy bed trimmed with vines and florets. Hand-painted furnishings and a stained-glass window enhance the intimate atmosphere. In the Poet's cottage, an old-fashioned oil lantern glows near a library stocked with love sonnets. In the morning, enjoy an in-room breakfast that features fresh fruit and eggs from local farms. Later, you can embark on a wine-tasting tour of up to 27 Texas Hill Country wineries, all located within an hour’s drive of the inn. Or pay a visit to massage therapist Sherry Elkin, who can reinvigorate muscles with a couples massage infused with aromatic oils. Wimberley, Texas: Artisan Boutiques and Vineyards in Hill Country Located in Texas Hill Country between Austin and San Antonio, the village of Wimberley presents a picture of peaceful rusticity where Cypress Creek meets the Blanco River. The latter is a popular spot for kayaking and fishing. A number of farms, ranches, and wineries are scattered across the area's rolling hills. The town's many art galleries and craft boutiques showcase the work of local artisans, and area growers ply their fresh wares at the farmers' markets. A picturesque region of rolling hills and valleys covered in bluebonnets (April is peak season for the iconic flower), Texas Hill Country has been compared to a Tuscan landscape by the New York Times. Urbanites often escape here for the weekend to enjoy the slower pace and beat the heat—the region's slightly higher elevation means it's often less humid. Love to travel?
