Get Spotted Shopping in Burnet, Texas - November 28-29

Some Burnet merchants will be helping Santa and his elves save a lot when they "Spot the Dot" on Black Friday and Small Business Saturday (some businesses are doing the sale longer!).  Participating merchants from the Burnet Association of Merchants such as All Mixed Up, the Burnet Antique Mall, and the Knot Hole will have select merchandise marked with a dot / discount.  Other businesses, such as Carolees also have discounts available for holiday shoppers.

The Picayune newspaper featured an article for the Spot the Dot event.  You can read their article HERE

Make a weekend of it and stay at The Verandas Guest House, right off the square.  You can walk to the shops and rest and relax in between all the bargains!

Race On Down to Burnet! - November 2014

The Hill Country is a great area for runners, cyclists, swimmers, triathletes, etc. to test their skills.  Besides local 5Ks and 10Ks, more rugged areas such as Inks Lake State Park and Reveille Peak Ranch near Burnet, Texas have events for athletes of all kinds. The Houston Room at the Verandas Guest House has been a popular room for race participants to rest up prior to race day, and with its modern tub and shower, to clean up after the race was done!

One of the events that has been announced for November 2014 is The Lonestar Granite Enduro on November 15 and November 16 -- a challenging 1 or 2 day cycling event at Reveille Peak Ranch - more information is available on their Facebook Event Page.

The following week - November 22 -  Reveille Peak Ranch will host the Reveille Peak 100 mountain bike race.  This race is being presented by Terra Firma Racing and has solo and team categories.

Whether you are a participant or a spectator, The Verandas is a relaxing and restful place to prepare for or wind down after a race!  Visit us online at or call (512) 588-0088 to reserve your room!
