Hill Country Wineries Have Done It Again 24 Apr 2014, 2:45 pmWe love living in the Texas Hill Country, and one of the reasons is all the wonderful wineries that are so close to us. I have to brag about 2 of them in this post. William Chris Vineyard and Winery in Hye, TX went to France and came back with 2 Gold Medals. Those wines receiving gold medals are the 2012 Enchanté red and 2012 William Chris Vineyard – Mourvédre. Also, Pedernales Cellars just outside of Hye off 290 made the top 10 list in National Geographic Magazine. When you come and stay at Biscuit Hill Bed and Breakfast Inn, these wonderful wineries, and many more are just a short drive away.
Where does the Hill Country Wine Trail Start? 2 Oct 2013, 9:15 amI 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. http://www.texaswinetrail.com/
Biscuit Hill B&B Goes "Ducky" 20 Jul 2013, 9:27 amNew 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 13 Jun 2013, 1:32 pmSummer 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! 21 Feb 2013, 6:33 am
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 http://www.biscuithill.com/activitiesandevents.htm 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.

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.
Fall Into The Texas Hill Country 28 Sep 2012, 8:26 amhttp://www.texaswinetrail.com/
There are also many festivals in our area for the Fall. Check out the various Chamber website for New Braunfels, Borne, Blanco and Johnson City to get all the latest info for their particular town. Biscuit Hill is no more than 20-45 min. from any of these towns. Only 15 mi. from New Braunfels.
Lastly, I want to give you a heads up for late October and November. Lost Maples State Park & Natural Area, will be your shortest destination for seeing Fall color. Other than around here at Canyon Lake. We have pretty good color too. You will need to check our weather because the leaves start turning about a week after the first cold snap. Lost Maples provided a "Leaf Update" on its website starting in October, so you can check back to this link as well. http://www.tpwd.state.tx.us/state-parks/lost-maples/foliage-reports If you stay at Biscuit Hill, you can also order one of our Picnic Totes to take with you. There will be many places to enjoy it whether you are enjoying the wine trail or the beautiful out of doors.

Happy Fall Ya'll !
