On the cusp between the Hill Country and the Prairies and Lakes region, Brownwood lies along a wine route known as the Way Out Wineries. A great spot to base yourself while on a tasting foray, the Star of Texas relishes its quirks. The bed and breakfast provides a collection of creative stand alone cottages, surrounded by trees, each with outdoor hot tubs, luxurious bedding, and a sumptuous breakfast delivered to your room. For a more rural interlude, choose the authentic Dancing Buffalo Tipi, which has a heated outdoor shower and an old-fashioned fire pit for late night marshmallow roasts. Note: bunking in the tipi does not include breakfast, and requires you to bring your own bedding.
