We decided to have a little staycation for my birthday/Mother’s Day weekend. We always passed by Hyatt Lost Pines when we head back to Louisiana, but this was our first time to actually stop and stay.
We absolutely loved our stay here. I described being here like a cruise. There are plenty of actives for everyone and anyone. If you just want to hang by the pool, go for it! If you want to do crafts, you can! If you want to watch movies all day and night, here’s the schedule! If you want to just chill and read a book on your balcony, by all means do it!
When you exit to their driveway, you are welcomed with a beautiful stone sign and a winding road before even seeing the resort. My daughter described it as a “road slide”. Big trees surrounded both sides of the road and our car would go uphill and downhill. “Weee! Road slide”, Sweet Eloise said.
We were greeted by the valet and bellhop. While my husband checked us in, Eloise and I looked around the lobby and front lawn area. It was a beautiful evening. We were experiencing not a typical Texas May. It was a 57 degrees and breezy. We saw people enjoying riding bikes, walking around, and sitting by the fire pit. We were starved so we headed to the Firewheel Cafe, which served a buffet. It was so delicious! My favorite was the pasta station and Eloise’s the desert table. LOL!
After stuffing ourselves, we decided to burn some calories by walking around the resort. We saw people enjoying sitting by the lake, playing corn hole and horseshoe, and my favorite making s’mores! A staffer already placed marshmallows on a long pitch-fork, then when your mallows were roasted how you wanted them, you bring it to another staffer that places them between 2 graham crackers and a chocolate bar. Talk about service!
In our hotel room, they gave us a schedule of the weekend’s festivities. We met the mascot (longhorn), said “Hi” to the alpacas, road bikes (free!), swam in the pool, did the arts & crafts, watched parts of a movie, enjoyed their restaurants and room service.
Our last night we ate on the patio at Sheller’s. I reflected on another year around the sun and really soaked in our time as a family.
I highly recommend staying here. Our weekend here was so much fun. We can’t wait to make this a yearly staycation!
