    The BEST wedding experience

    When our daughter got engaged we considered several Austin area venues but with so many guests coming from out of town we quickly knew we wanted a whole weekend with our family and friends. The Retreat at Balcones Springs ticked ALL the boxes and more! The entire property has the most beautiful setting options for every need especially for a wedding ceremony, the accommodations were luxurious and comfortable, each meal (and snack) was savory and delicious and the staff was so kind and accommodating. The final ingredient was all the FUN options of things to do! From the lake activities, late night bonfires, scenic hikes, beach, skeet shooting, tennis, pickle ball, basketball, but the highlight was the ZIP LINE across lake Ted! So many of our guests took the plunge! The Retreat worked with us as we navigated scheduling and re-rescheduling a COVID wedding. We were able to hold all our weekend events at the Retreat including the rehearsal dinner which helped minimize transportation and logistics issues. The COVID and safety protocols enabled all our guests to have a healthy enjoyable weekend! The staff saw to our every need and enabled us true quality time with so many friends and loved ones. More importantly, the amazing wedding coordinator Jennifer worked well with our vendors to help our daughter and son in law have the most beautiful, stress free JOY filled wedding celebration! She was on top of every detail! I highly recommend The Retreat at Balcones Springs if you want a special place for any event or wedding. The special memories we made with new and old friends and as families celebrating the love of this incredible bride and groom were truly priceless. The feedback we have received is that this was the most beautiful, enjoyable and fun wedding they have ever been to! Thank you to Christine, Jennifer and all the staff at The Retreat at Balcones Springs for helping create the weekend of a lifetime!

    Amazing Venue for a Weekend Wedding!

    My sister had a beautiful fall wedding weekend here. It took a while to find a venue to host 100+ guests for the weekend but Balcones Springs was the PERFECT place. We stayed Thursday - Sunday and spend time at the lake, shooting range, fire pits, and so many other great spots around the property. I can't even begin to tell you how kind the staff is and how delicious the food was!!!! SO hard to find a venue with great food, staff and amenities. The whole family + all the guests are STILL raving about the weekend.
