Plan to visit some local attractions while you’re here. We’ve got some great things to do and places to see!
Krause Springs is one of the Austin ares’s most well-known camping & swimming attractions. Located in the beautiful Hill Country town of Spicewood Texas, approximately 30 miles west of Austin.
Listed on the National Registry of Historical Sites and privately owned by the Krause Family for over 50 years, Krause Springs has many natural sites to explore. There are 32 springs on the property, and several feed the manmade pool and the natural pool which flows into Lake Travis. It’s a refreshing treat to swim in the Springs during the hot summers of Texas!
If camping is in your plans, there is primitive tent camping as well as 24 RV sites with water and electricity available. Guests are also welcome to relax and to stroll through the Butterfly Gardens; take time to listen to the music of the wind chimes and the fountains during your visit!
Stone House Vineyard is situated on a high bluff overlooking Lake Travis, benefiting from the moderating cool breezes from the water. The 7 acres of close-planted Norton vines are grown in semi-drought conditions. The soil is lean and hungry with layers of clay and sandy loam over decomposed limestone. The vines compete vigorously for moisture and nutrients. This competition encourages the vines’ roots to dig deep into the soil where it is moist and cool throughout all seasons.
Standard vineyard management is impossible in the variable Texas Hill Country climate. The unpredictable spring can bring hail, freeze, and copious rains during flowering. Norton has its own program of care according to its position in the vineyard and the end resulting wines. Trellis and canopy structure is the vertical shoot positioning. Working with the natural advantage rather than against it is the driving force in working the vineyard. Every factor is taken into consideration, including the micro-climates within the vineyard aspect and soil type.
Like our wines, the vineyard is not content imitating that of other cultures. Instead, it has confidence in the style and structure that is it’s own signature.
