Quite possibly the most relaxing weekend of my life - not exaggerating!
Our stay at Gruene Estate could not have been better. We take a girls trip once a year, and have been to some really nice and exciting destinations, but never in the 12 years that we have been doing this, can I remember such an all-around fantastic experience.
We arrived Friday afternoon to the gorgeous grounds of Gruene Estate, and it was IMMACULATE. Several of us commented that we usually prefer not to walk around sans shoes because of all the junk that gets on your feet, but Gruene Estate was so clean that we kicked off our shoes and made ourselves at home!
The decor of the cottages, the multiple patios and porches, the pavilion, the beautiful wedding chapel - all of it is stunning! They have done such an amazing job of mixing Texas Hill Country ambiance with comfortably elegant decor. It feels as though you've entered a really high-end photo shoot for "the perfect weekend getaway", complete with grazing deer and Longhorns in a sprawling field of grass and wildflowers. We loved exploring the open-air chapel and all agreed that we wish we could get married again at Gruene Estate!
The staff was courteous, friendly, and made it clear that they were available to accommodate any needs we might have without being pushy or TOO present.
And to top it all off, that bed was probably the most comfortable one I have ever slept in. They obviously spared no expense on linens, pillows, etc. I would go back just for the sleep alone!
Gruene Estate provides tons of activity options, yard games such as washers and horseshoes, beautiful grounds to walk, lots of nearby attractions - but we opted to stay in our pajamas and lounge on the porches all weekend. Maybe we'll be more motivated to be active next time!
Either way, I highly recommend and will definitely be back!
