A Much Needed Lakeway Getaway

By chet | August 26, 2011

Every so often I get the urge to stay somewhere longer than a day (hard to believe, right?).  So with the Season 2 in the books and a brief window before Season 3 hit with hurricane-force winds, my wife and I snuck away to the Lakeway Resort and Spa on Lake Travis.

I’d always heard tale of the resort, but it’s secluded location kept it far from my travels.  It’s one of those place you’d never pass by unless you were intentionally passing by.  Which, I think, is the definition of a getaway.

Somewhere between the incredible views of Lake Travis, complimentary lemonade all over the place, multiple swimming pools, massage, and Dr. Pepper-fried quail, I was able to cram what felt like a week’s worth of relaxation into a single overnight trip.  We had an excellent time.  I mean truly, truly relaxing.

Our kids would have eaten this place up too, but sometimes you just gotta leave them at home.

So if you’re looking for more of a Weekend-tripper type of location, romantic getaway, or launchpad for seeing Austin and the Texas Hill Country, Lakeway Resort and Spa is highly recommended.

This sandwich was AWESOME.  It was turkey with brie cheese, cucumbers, and sprouts.  I’m surprised I’d never had the combination before.  I know, I know, you don’t expect The Daytripper to recommend something with brie and cucumbers on it, but Trust Me on this one.Lakeway Sandwich

And here is the Dr. Pepper-fried quail.  That is a honey-butter drizzle all over it and a blue cheese potato salad underneath it.Dr. Pepper QuailLakeway RoomLakeway ViewLakeway Wine
