A Peaceful Wedding ~ Yes, it's possible!

A Peaceful Wedding ~ Yes, it's possible!
  • Submitted: Oct 2, 2013
  • Stayed: Mar 2013
"On a beautiful spring morning we were married at Living Waters. We booked the entire facility for the weekend to house our out-of-town friends and family. The atmosphere exudes peace and was perfectly aligned with our vision for the weekend. Neither one of us wanted to obsess over the “typical and expected” wedding day/weekend issues (for example, having every decoration look perfect to within an inch of its life). We wanted a neurotic-free zone, and Living Waters totally delivered—starting with Bethany and Travis. They are completely calm souls. Bethany answered all of our questions promptly. The arrangement of the buildings and grounds allowed for a very private and intimate weekend. We enjoyed the hammocks, native plants and appreciated that it was not an overly-manicured environment—it’s an honest, natural setting. Can you tell we despise over-production? We brought food from our favorite trailers in Austin and availed ourselves of the kitchens to store, heat, and serve the food. Everything we needed was there. And throughout the weekend, Bethany and Travis were there if we needed anything. Best of all, after our friends and family left, we were able to stay and enjoy a slow afternoon with the hummingbirds, butterflies, and leftover wedding cake. Living Waters is a remarkable venue that will be in our hearts forever. Thank you for everything."

Magical Wedding Weekend

  • Submitted: Oct 2, 2013
  • Stayed: Apr 2012
“Our wedding held at Living Waters was nothing short of magical. As soon as we stepped through the front gate, we knew we found the venue we’d been looking for. There is a sacred, peaceful, harmonious energy here, along with stunning natural grounds and buildings with unique architecture that is at turns modern, funky and homey (not the typical Laura ashley, kitschy, Texas B&B; that predominates in the area).We wanted a site that would allow for a day-long wedding and reception, as we wanted to spend more than 2 minutes with each of our mostly out-of-state guests. Our preference was to have a place on the water with room for 100 people, but still feel intimate. We desired a space that would accommodate our wedding party for the weekend so we’d have time to connect instead of running around from place to place. We were looking to get married under a canopy of wise old trees. We wanted to choose our own vendors. And we wanted to work with kind, communicative, honest, warm folks. And we didn’t want to have to harvest our organs to pay for it.Bethany and Travis Webb could not have been more accommodating. Their love of Living Waters and experience hosting their own wedding on site was invaluable. They recommended local vendors, gave us tips on how to lay out the space and the day. They let us tour the site multiple times for our do-it-yourself planning purposes. Travis toiled to update the pavilion, helped us erect a wedding arch and ensured the grounds looked fantastic. And Bethany saved our behinds by agreeing to coordinate our wedding day at the 11th hour after we were forced to let our coordinator go, and did so with incredible grace, dedication and good humor.

We had the wedding of our dreams. A wedding we believe truly reflected us and our union. We cannot recommend Living Waters more highly and are pleased to call the Webbs our friends.”

Finding Serenity at our Corporate Retreat

  • Submitted: Oct 2, 2013
  • Stayed: Mar 2013
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!

New Year's Friends Reunion

New Year's Friends Reunion
  • Submitted: Oct 2, 2013
  • Stayed: Jan 2013
"I came here with my closest friends right after New Years Day. After leafing through the physical guestbooks in one of the houses, I got the impression that Living Waters is most frequently booked by families, wedding parties, or couples looking for a romantic getaway. However, I found that it’s a perfect place for twenty somethings to recoup from the daily hustle of coming into adulthood. Although we only got to stay for 2 1/2 days, it was an amazing, relaxing time that was well spent. Even though we had the entire retreat to ourselves, we spent most of it in La Casa de Joy together, which is spacious enough to easily accomodate a sizable party – not to mention fully stocked with amenities, well-kept, and beautifully furnished and decorated. Being there really removed us from the silly stress of being in the city and trying to find something we’d all like to do. It allowed us to get down to the basics of our friendship and the love we have for one another. Imagine summer camp, field day, thanksgiving, and an open bar wedding all rolled into one. Bethany and Travis were gracious hosts, giving us plenty of space but being there whenever we needed them. They even joined us for dinner and s’mores one night! And Bethany gave us an unforgettable morning yoga session. All in all it was a truly a unique experience and I would go again in a heartbeat!"

Anniversary Getaway

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jun 11, 2013
  • Stayed: Apr 2013
My husband and I rented this house for our anniversary. We had a great time! The house is very spacious and has really nice amenities. We actually saw three deer run across the property on Saturday night while we were out on the deck watching the sunset. Although we missed the community yoga Saturday morning, my husband and I both had Thai massages with Travis and they were so rejuvenating. I highly recommend it. We went to Krause Springs, which is only about 10 to 15 minutes away and it was breathtaking. On Bethany's recommendation, we stopped by Opie's BBQ first. It was so good that we stopped by there on Sunday morning and got food to go! We enjoyed a wine tasting at the fabulous Stone House Vineyard, which is literally a stone's throw from the property! They have marvelous wine. We also enjoyed steak and lamb at J5 steakhouse one night. It was wonderful that everything was such a short distance away and that we had our lovely, relaxing house to come back to! We can't wait to do it again!
