I just LOVE Texas Winters. You get the best of both worlds. It can be in the 20's one day and the 80's the next. That way everyone has the weather they can enjoy. This weekend it will be in the high 70's or low 80's so it is time for us to go enjoy the lake!!!! We probably won't get in the water though. More than likely we will walk the river and watch the fly fisherman do their thing on the Guadalupe.

Where does the Hill Country Wine Trail Start?

I get the question "Where does the Hill Country Wine Trail start?" from our guests all the time. My answer is here at Biscuit Hill Bed and Breakfast of course. We have 3 vineyards, and 6 wineries all within a 15 mile drive. But it really doesn't matter where you want to start your tasting journey. We have the official wine trail map at the Bed and Breakfast so you can plan what route that best suites your needs. Don't forget that October is Wine Trail Month, and most of the wineries are hosting special events. You can go to the official Hill Country Wine Trail website for all the details.

Biscuit Hill B&B Goes "Ducky"

New Facebook fun for Biscuit Hill B&B Guests. Everything at the B&B is just "Ducky". But as long as they hold out, all rooms will come with a Yellow Rubber Ducky that guests can take with them as they enjoy the Texas Hill Country during their stay. If guests take a picture with their duck in their favorite places while they are guests, and post them on Facebook (their page & ours), they will get $10 off every night of their next visit. Make sure our logo is showing in the picture or mention our name along with where you took the picture. Let's all get just "Ducky"!

Summer 2013

Summer fun is all around us here in the Texas Hill Country. Besides all there is to do, the crop of new hill country fawns is growing. You can view them up close here at Biscuit Hill B&B. Baby fawns are being born everyday around here, so you can just step outside your room and walk to the feeding area to possibly catch a glimpse of one.Also many of the Texas Hill Country Wineries are hosting special events, Canyon Lake is beautiful as always, and ready to host your 2013 Summer water activity. Comal Park is only 5 miles from Biscuit Hill. It has beaches, picnic tables, and public facilities. Biscuit Hill does have parking for a boat or jet skies, and the nearest boat ramp is only a little over 1 mile from the Inn. Tried to get a fawn pic up but Blogger is not letting me, I'll try again later. Sorry for the delay! Still not able to get the new fawn picture up so I am posting this on our Facebook Page with the post reading New Fawns at Biscuit Hill Bed & Breakfast.

March Is Coming!


 Due to the warm weather lately, many of the trees, bushes, and other plants are blooming early this year. Gruene is also budding out with many special events during March. You can see our Events calendar here Our very fragrant Mountain Laural here at Biscuit Hill, and the Lady Banks Rose vine should be blooming the first couple of weeks in March.

Before I close I want to mention that we are celebrating Texas Independence day the 1st weekend in March by offering our guests a souvenir Biscuit Hill wine glass with each reservation for that weekend. When you book online just ask for our Texas Independence Gift. It will not be given automatically. Kind of a bonus for you reading my blog ;-)

Biscuit Hill's halls are decked, the table is set, holiday music is playing throughout the Inn. So if you have the time, come to the Texas Hill Country and enjoy at least part of your holiday season.  As a reminder all our rooms have their own fireplace and porch seating from the room. Also, this year we have added a new fire pit making it easier to roast those marshmallows.

Biscuit Hill's Fall Pyracantha Berries in our Garden

Hello everyone. It seems that October is just flying by and November is blowing on in soon. As I mentioned last month there is much to do in our area in the Fall. This coming weekend October 20 & 21 will be Gruene Trade Days, the week following October 27 & 28 is the Annual Texas Clay Festival, and if that is not enough FUN for you, starting November 2nd and running through the next weekend, November 10th, New Braunfels is having Wurestfest. This German festival is know throughout the state, and is a must attend at least once in your life. Wonderful German food is prepared by local charity groups, and there are several "adult" beverages to choose from. The festival hosts many music and entertainment stages, and there is also carnival rides on the Wurestfest grounds. Wurestfest is the epitome of a FUN TIME!
Here at the Inn we have started serving our Fall menu, with many special treats. The menu is determined by the number of guests in the house, but all menus have a Fall flavor to them. Our Saturday morning sweet treat for thhis Fall is Orange & Cranberry puffs topped with powdered sugar. Of course that is not all you get for your Saturday breakfast, but it is our Fall dish for Saturdays. Sundays we are serving our hearty sausage and 3 cheese Breakfast Casserole, Cheesy Potato Supreme, Harvest Biscuits, Fall fruit salad, and the sweet treat will vary depending on what I'm in the mood for.
