The Wayback, Boutique Stays and Casual Ways

by The Wayback on September 18, 2023 in sponsored,

We love our beautiful, urban Austin, but also truly appreciate a little escape to the Texas Hill Country where it’s quieter, the air is fresh and time slows. The Wayback is a casual boutique hotel 15 minutes west of downtown. Our style here is friendly, comfortable and classic. Surrounded by hills and a big Texas sky, The Wayback is a place to feel the breeze, be carefree and linger.

Eight classic board-and-batten cottages sit peacefully under the live oaks. Interiors are outfitted with a laid-back luxury, combining organic textiles, a bit of vintage, and lots of comfort. Speaking of comfort, we just added these fabulous cotton robes to each cottage, and they have been the perfect addition for our guests to have morning coffee on their private patio.

1.Crema Tartine with Oro Bianco buffalo milk crema, roasted strawberry, balsamic

2. *Greener Pastures Roasted Citrus Chicken   mixed greens, toasted pecans, pickled onions, citrus dressing

3. Shrimp Bucatini   roasted poblano cream sauce, *sauteed shrimp, Texas corn, bell pepper, Parmigiano Reggiano 

Also, the recent upgrade in plush outdoor furniture is arel=nofollow contender for the best patio in Austin!










Lounge poolside and cool off in the heat of a Texas summer, or warm-up on a cool night while making s’mores around the fire. We have recently launched pool passes on Resort Pass. Pool passes are $40/person and are offered Wednesday -Sunday. If you’re still hesitant about coming out to dip your feet in the pool, then check out this recent review by @AustinFoodHeads !
