I ran right down to the Texas hill nation on Sunday for a fast enterprise journey earlier this week and I simply needed to let you know about Carter Creek Vineyard & Resort. Whereas I didn’t have sufficient time to expertise all the things (such because the spa and the pool), I needed to let everybody know what pleasant lodging this resort has. Preserve it in thoughts when planning your spring Fredericksburg journeys!
This resort is on the well-known Texas Hwy 290 wine path between Johnson Metropolis and Fredericksburg. There are over fifty vineyards inside a twenty minute drive. Carter Creek has a bunch of particular person villas which are HUGE and at solely $218 an evening (with my AAA low cost), the sq. footage is a steal. Plus the resort is canine pleasant! I can’t even wait to return with my canine, Henry. What’s to not love?! It’s an ideal place to take a canine as a result of there’s ample grass in entrance of every villa simply steps away out of your bed room. So handy!
My one-bedroom villa had a cute little porch and front room with a flat display TV and a eating desk. The bed room additionally had a flat display TV and an enormous, cozy king sized mattress with delicate sheets and fluffy pillows. The room was good and chilly after I arrived – so necessary for our scorching local weather – and the decor was Texan with out being kitschy. The resort is sort of peaceable. I slept so properly!
The en suite rest room had two sinks, numerous counter house, a separate rest room, and a big, beautiful bathe with nice water stress.
After unpacking, I rushed out the door to spend that day at Kuhlman Cellars’ Blessing of the Vines occasion. It was a few 5 minute drive to the winery. You possibly can learn concerning the occasion right here and the wine & meals tasting right here.
After my day on the vineyard, I freshened up in my room earlier than heading over to Carter Creek’s restaurant, Outdated 290 Brewery. The setting may be very Texan and really cute: an enormous open garden with corn gap and twinkling lights strung throughout the courtyard. Most individuals selected to eat on the lined patio, myself included, and benefit from the sundown. I used to be delighted to see what number of canines had been laying at their house owners’ toes at dinner!
A lot to my server’s absolute horror, I ordered three programs – hey, I do that for you guys! I began with the loaded potato skins as a result of they had been calling to me. I received the giggles when the plate arrived. No marvel he was horrified. They introduced me 2.5 entire baked potatoes! The skins are crispy and scrumptious and the potatoes are filled with beer chili and bacon. Evidently, this starter would feed a bunch of individuals!
For dinner I received the Hill Nation Backyard Salad with smoked hen and I have to completely insist that you simply get it if you go. With unbelievably juicy peaches, Texas pecans, feta cheese, and a spring combine, that is probably the most Rose Desk salad! Paired with the peerlessly smoked hen, that is simply completely to die for.
For dessert, I ordered the smoked banana pudding, which sounded superb. Sadly they introduced me the bread pudding and I didn’t wish to ship it again. I’m not a giant bread pudding individual and don’t usually order it however this was excellent and really bourbon-y. I might undoubtedly get it once more! Even if you happen to don’t keep at Carter Creek, the restaurant is unquestionably value a go to.
Final however definitely not least, Carter Creek is superbly landscaped in a really low-maintenance type of manner. There are lots of native crops that had been completely thriving throughout my journey to March and simply have a look at the Brewery car parking zone! I practically fell over after I pulled as much as this wall of bluebonnets. It was much more spectacular by the point I left dinner.
I’ve to thank my buddies at CultureMap Dallas for his or her fantastic article about Carter Creek. I can’t consider it’s been open for years now and I haven’t heard of it! I can be again. I can’t even wait to attempt the spa!
