I’ve just been to Austin (live music capital of the world), staying at the new Hyatt Regency Lost Pines Resort, and found it to be an exceptional location for outdoor fun and relaxed central Texas cowboy charm. In fact, Lost Pines makes a perfect location for your multi-generational family vacation or family reunion. If you’d love a spot that pampers and entertains adults while turning youngsters into giggling, nature loving cowpokes – this is the resort for you.
Perched along the banks of the Colorado River, the Lost Pines Resort stretches out over 405 rolling acres that border an additional 1,100 acres of the McKinney Roughs National Park. Driving in along the very long and windy entrance road immerses you deep into Texas wilderness leaving all thoughts of city life behind. Proud ranch style buildings built of local stone in muted tones await your arrival in rustic elegance. Take a deep breath of fresh air and dive right in to all the wonderful activities the resort has to offer.
Who could resist an equestrian adventure at the Renegade Trailhead. Sign your youngsters up for ‘Horse Camp’ or riding school, or gallop together along trails once used by original Texas settlers to roam along the Colorado River. Be sure to check the activity board for evening campfires, sing alongs and bouncy hayrides. If horses are not your kid’s choice of transportation, sign them up for a sparkling new bicycle to use during their stay.
Adults will appreciate the award winning Wolfdancer Golf Club and Django Spa, as well as the miles of hiking and biking trails. Or wander on down to the river for a kayak or tubing adventure, canoe trip, or don some waders and try your luck at fly fishing. Then when you are all tuckered out and ready for some sunbathing and wet and wild water fun, head over to the Crooked River Water Park. The property is dotted with quiet alcoves with benches, picnic tables, barbecue pits, and playground equipment just waiting for family interludes. With all the fun activities available at the Lost Pines Resort, your whole family will have a fabulous time and your little buckaroos will be smiling from ear to ear.
