The Oaks Bed and Breakfast, keeps me pretty busy and in town most of the time. Recently I had the chance to take a short business trip down to Wimberley, Texas and it was so lovely. I wish that I had a little more time to explore the area, to go wine or whiskey tasting. What I did see and explore was worth the drive, even for meetings.
It never does cease to amaze me at how diverse the landscape is in Texas. From the PineyWoods, to the dessert, Texas almost has every landscape a person could desire. It might take a few hours to do so, but the change from East Texas’ tall trees and grass that blends to mesquite and shrub brush, helps to diversify Texas from other states. Once I made it to Wimberly, I stayed with my group at Creekhaven Inn and Spa. Their property is just beautiful!
It sits back from a flowing creek and has two buildings for guests to select from while planning their stay. Do not forget to book your spa appointment while visiting. They offer a range of spa packages for you to take advantage of during your stay. They offer yoga on Saturday’s and have plenty of mats and blocks for guests to use if you did not happen to bring your own.
The rooms are well appointed for guest stays, with everything you might need for your visit. A gas fireplace, in room coffee or tea service, a fridge for leftovers or cold drinks and lovely local bath products. Each room is an experience in and of itself, make your selection and then relax in the comfort of your stay.
On our second day after meetings, we made our way to downtown Wimberley to explore, shop and dine. Their downtown is made up of cute little buildings that have a myriad of shopping options for everyone. Women’s clothing, kitchenware, candy store, a store with handmade arts and crafts made by seniors in the community and so much more. There are a few different places to enjoy your meals, besides breakfast at Creekhaven. We ordered in from Wimberley Café, enjoyed Tex-Mex for lunch and had woodfired pizza to share. There were more options to try than that, but time was short. My favorite was the woodfired pizza. I’m a big fan of mushrooms on pizza and they had a perfectly paired mushroom, burrata cheese, and arugula pizza that was amazing.
I did get a chance to walk along the creek close to the property and explore a little bit of nature. Play at your own risk, it was a lovely space to commune and grab some images of the creek. If the weather and water had been a bit warmer, I might have tested the water just a bit more. But it was a little cool for my taste, so I stayed out and explored the bank. In the morning deer could be seen all around the property, and must be why they express the need to keep the gates closed by the Inn. Take some time to explore Wimberley and be sure to book your stay at Creekhaven Inn and Spa, the longest running bed and breakfast in Wimberley. I’m sure you will return relaxed and rejuvenated.
