The Destination
Between Austin and San Antonio lies a hidden gem. San Marcos—or San Marvelous as locals call it—gets most of its approbation from its status as a college town (it's the home of Texas State University), and, indeed, it has all the accoutrements that come with that: museums, art galleries, music venues, and boutique shops. But due to its strategic location along both the San Marcos River and the Blanco River, this Hill Country locale is a magnet for nature lovers who flock to its verdant valleys and rolling cactus-laden hills to get a peek at some of the rarest and most breathtaking flora and fauna in the state.

The Digs
Under the shade of Hill Country trees lies a smattering of quaint cottages that represent the epitome of an Escapist retreat. Heirloom Blooms boasts knotty-pine accents complement warm pastels in individually appointed rooms with quilt-draped beds that elicit a homey feel. Spacious kitchens or kitchenettes allow for easy cooking—a must-do considering the produce-and-herb gardens that line each property specifically for your consumption. Although each cottage is outfitted with TVs, DVD players, and Wi-Fi, you'll probably want to unplug given the myriad opportunities to hike the nearby trails either by day or by moonlight for nature walks and owl prowls.

  • "To get a feeling for the Hill Country—the state of mind where cool mingles with tradition... head out among the limestone knolls full of live oak groves and cypress-lined creeks... Here you’ll find a delicious tension between rural and refined."
