The Retreat on the Hill
The Retreat on the Hill is not only a great glamping spot, but also a wedding venue in the Texas Hill Country, so you can imagine how beautiful it is. There are several unique units, so you’re guaranteed to find something to your liking, but between lodgings like the Stardome Suite and the Eagle’s Nest Retreat, it may be hard to choose just one.

There are many different ideas of glamping, but Conestoga wagon glamping is definitely a unique experience.

Not only will you fall in love with how colorful this place is, but also the cute cottage homes! They are just the right fit, allowing you to match your mood and decorative desires. You’ll be taken away by the greenery and plants surrounding the property. My favorite things were the oven and stove top, considering there are only a few places to eat in Concan.

Well, that’s perfect because Camp Lucy has all of the camp activities you could ever want, except it’s the adult version (although kids are welcome here and can have just as much fun)!

Havenwald is the perfect, magical glamping experience right outside of Austin. There are three tiny homes to choose from, but we stayed in the Robin Hood Cottage. This cottage had my fairytale childhood written all over it! Stained glass windows covered the house and colored wood was speckled throughout. The pictures don’t do this charming cottage justice. The owners were even kind enough to provide a picnic basket with yummy treats. This wholesome experience will offer plenty of privacy, but since you are nearby, stop in Austin and experience all the things to do.
A Renovated School Bus
Lubbock’s converted school bus may not look like much on the outside, but its interior is sleep with a Texas Tech-theme. The bus is stocked with chocolates, snacks, coffee, and even farm fresh eggs! There is also a TV with all your favorite stations. What is there not to love about all of that?
