La Cantera Hill Country Resort: Time for a Winter Escape

That is exactly what my husband and I did for two days...escape! We went to the LA CANTERA HILL COUNTRY RESORT for a brief celebration of 31 years of marriage and we did not want to leave.
We arrived at sunset to a fabulous room with a view over the Texas Hill Country.  The rooms are beautiful with my favorite products by NEST.
At dusk the courtyard fires are lit and it is beautiful and fascinating to watch the flames dance with the fountains...

I love it that our anniversary is at Christmastime...just makes everything even more special to me since I love Christmas so much.

After a special treat in the room, we headed out to view this amazing property.  The views, pools, decor are stunning and I know I must enjoy these pools this summer.

Then we headed into the SWEETFIRE KITCHEN for dinner...I had the salmon and Mr. B, the sea bass...but the piece de resistance was the apple tart with bourbon ice cream!  Sooo good.
Well, at the risk of making you completely ravished...We also had one of the best breakfasts I have enjoyed in a long time...

It began in the room and continued downstairs...with San Antonio flair...my husband said their huevos rancheros was the best!

I highly recommend a winter escape from cold and snow to the sunny, beautiful south...LA CANTERA HILL COUNTRY RESORT includes an AWARD WINNING GOLF COURSE, and soon to open in 2016 the MOST AMAZING SPA EVER...
Happy Wednesday, all!

Disclaimer:  I did receive a free night at the hotel, but the words and opinions are my own.
