Celebrate the beauty of Mother Nature this Mothers' Day in the Hill Country. Bring Mom for a weekend getaway at The Verandas Guest House in Burnet, Texas. We have plenty of scenery and lots of events in Burnet to help make her day special.
Here are some ideas for a fun-filled weekend agenda that is sure to surprise and delight your mother!
Start your weekend with live music at Cafe 2300 for dinner Friday night. They offer American cafe fare, and there is a gift shop next door for a little Mothers' Day gift shopping. Then relax in your private suite in a clawfoot bathtub and get a restful night's sleep to prepare you for your wonderful weekend.
On Saturday, May 7, after a delicious breakfast at Crazy Gal's Cafe (included with your stay), venture over to the historic Burnet County Courthouse square for the City Wide Garage Sale and the Burnet Farmers' Market from 9 am to 1 pm. Grab a cup of coffee at Unshakeable Grounds to enjoy with your stroll. There are a lot of great shops for more shopping on the square such as All Mixed Up, Burnet Antique Mall, Carolees, The Grapevine, and Sassy Ann's.
You can get a reservation to head out to the Vanishing Texas River Cruise for a scenic tour of one of our local waterways and order a lunch with your cruise, or make a reservation at Fall Creek Vineyard's annual Mothers' Day Luncheon in Tow. Enjoy the breathtaking views on your leisurely drive. You can continue a mini wine trail tour at Perissos Vineyards and Tour Na Lochs Vineyards on your way back down Highway 29.
Dinner and live music options include Jeff Hughes performing at Trailblazer Grille on the square starting at 6 pm. Dine at Bill's Burgers or The Highlander and then go down the street a few blocks for a free outdoor concert featuring Two Tons of Steel at Haley Nelson Park at 7:30 pm. Want a quieter serenade? Spend the rest of your evening outside your suite, relaxing in your rocking chair on the veranda while the frogs in the pond sing for you!
