Perfect Perfect Perfect Weekend!!!

We went to Living Water for our corporate retreat, and what an amazing time it was! Not only is the place stunning, it's so incredibly peaceful. Like you can feel the energy of the place just exudes serenity. You literally cannot be stressed there!
Bethany and Travis, the caretakers of the property, greeted us and orientated us for our time there, showing us everything the property had to offer. Our company hired a private chef that was on property for all our food needs (very reasonably priced I heard!), so Friday after arrival we had a delicious dinner. Our rooms were actually little unique cottages all over the property, so offered total privacy. Complete with fridge, coffee maker, wine glasses (you know, the essentials)! : ) Day two brought morning Yoga led by Bethany at the outdoor yoga studio on property. Then Thai massage by Travis in the indoor treehouse. Some cleansing water, a delicious lunch, and a little time by the gorgeous outdoor fireplace. We went on a little nature walk down the steps that have been carved into the side of the hill in stone and walked down the river and got some fresh air. Back to the house then off to a wine tasting at the Stonehouse Vineyard (about a 5 min. walk from the house). We got back in time for a little dip in the hot tub that overlooks the river and watched the sunset while we sipped on some pre-dinner cocktails. Total heaven! Another amazing dinner and then gathered outside around a big metal fire pit and chatted the night away. The whole place is wired for outdoor sound. Such a nice touch!
Sunday was the worst day, because we had to leave : ( But after a yummy breakfast, we hit the road home, relaxed and refreshed and talking about how soon we could go back. The two things was didn't get to take advantage of was the zip lining tours just up the street (not enough hours in the day!) and getting in the river as it was a little cold at this time of year. Hopefully if we're back in the summer we can take advantage of that.
This was one of the most luxurious and relaxing vacations I've never had, and I've done my fair share of traveling. The best part is, it was right here in Austin! I will be back ASAP. Highly recommend this to anyone that just wants to get away for some peace and relaxation (and a little fun of course). Great for kids, couples, groups, families, etc. Loved it!
