Lovebirds take flight to the Highland Lakes

If February finds you in the mood for amore, plan a sweet escape to the Highland Lakes of Burnet County. Cozy treetop love nests and sublime hilltop hideaways will please big and little spoons alike. 

Zip over to Cypress Valley in Spicewood for an overnight stay in a treehouse that is more architectural masterpiece than backyard club. Or, find seclusion among the rocky hillsides and lose yourself, for just a weekend, at The Missing Hotel on the outskirts of Marble Falls. The magazine-worthy casitas are perfectly situated for privacy. 

Commune with each other and nature at Canyon of the Eagles Nature Park on Lake Buchanan. Enjoy the creature comforts of home with adventure waiting just outside the door. Or, discover the definition of “glamping” in a Retreat Ranch yurt. The 46-acre ranch in Marble Falls is the ideal place to disconnect from the world and reconnect with each other.

Burnet County’s hills and lakes offer ample opportunities for outdoor recreation. Take your honey on a hike and spot some birds (and bees). Embark on a carefree, spirit-filled winery, brewery, or distillery tour with Heart of Texas Wine Tours or Wine 29 and leave the driving to someone else. When the sun goes down (our sunsets are spectacular, btw) the night comes alive with live music, stage productions, and fun places to dine and drink. Twirl your partner under the twinkling lights of a Highland Lakes dancehall, experience a modern twist on the speakeasy at Sips on Second in Marble Falls, or toast a spectacular view at Bay View Restaurant and Bar on Lake LBJ in Cottonwood Shores. 

Pack a bag and your sweetheart and head to the hills for an unforgettable, frolicking February in the Highland Lakes of Burnet County.
