Marriott Horseshoe Bay Resort
This weekend my family visited the Marriott Horseshoe Bay Resort. I was speaking at a business event and we decided this was a good opportunity for the family to get away for the weekend. Horseshoe Bay is a short one-hour drive from Austin, and the Bluebonnets (Texas State Flower) are in bloom along the highways.
The event I spoke at was GREAT (I met lots of cool people)... and the hotel was AMAZING (perfect for business and families!).
Sara and the kid's explored the resort while I was working, and then Sara joined me for a hands-on cooking class that was hosted for the participants at the meeting. It was fun to work with the hotel's chef's to learn and cook with about 15 other folks. The Marriott staff was wonderful and the food was unique and tasted better because we helped prepare the meal! The mustard, brie and apple quesadillas are something we will make at home very soon!
The rest of the weekend was spent at the pool, the beach, on the put-put course, a boat cruise, kicking the soccer ball, playing ping-pong, reading, and relaxing. There was much more to do, and next time we are at this hotel we plan on playing tennis and renting paddleboards.
While my career as a professional speaker brings me to many hotels, the Marriott Horseshoe Bay was a perfect place to bring the family. We could have happily stayed the whole week. Two days was not nearly enough.
This is a great destination for any company or association who is hosting an event in Texas. Easy to get to and you will be pleasantly surprised by all the amenities!!!!
Have A Great Day.
