Austin Staycation: Lakeway Resort and Spa

I was invited to be a guest at Lakeway Resort and Spa. All opinions are my own. Thank you for supporting the sponsors that make this blog possible!

I have a confession to make. I’ve lived in Austin for over four years and I’ve never seen Lake Travis. I realize how ridiculous this sounds. I mean, it’s a lake. In the city where I live. How could I miss it?

Well, there’s no missing it at Lakeway Resort and Spa.

All rooms have been recently redesigned with a fresh and contemporary feel that compliments the colors of the lake and feels peaceful and relaxing. The ceilings are also sky high, giving the spacious rooms an even airier feel.

    We stayed there 2 summers ago for Free Fun in Austin. I loved it. Plus they comped us some child care, so Christian and I could eat dinner alone and have no idea what to talk about with no children to harass about eating their food.
