It's been said that the Hill Country has a special spirit all its own.  That once you've been there you can't wait to go back. That
it is almost magic.

For over 25 years, the Dillon family and Crystal River Inn have been working hard to capture that spirit. Some of the peace,
the beauty, the history, and the happiness of this unique chunk of Texas have been bottled up right here, waiting to be
sampled. Guests can indulge in nonstop activity, or do absolutely nothing.

Sleep until noon and have breakfast in bed. Rock the afternoon away in the veranda. Join new friends for a sumptuous
brunch. Hold business meetings and seminars in the sunlit library. Celebrate morning in the rose garden over fresh-ground
coffee and homemade muffins.

Shop 'til you drop at San Marcos'  famed designer factory outlet (Donna Karan, Saks Fifth Avenue, Adopho, Coach Leather,
and 135 fabulous others). Float down a crystal-clear hill country stream. Go river walking in San Antonio, antiquing in
Wimberley, dancing on Saturday night. Have a sunset picnic up on the Devil's Backbone, then come back to our favorite
fountain courtyard, at nearby Palmer's Restaurant, for dessert and margaritas. For more things to do in the area around
Crystal River Inn, check out our "Fun Things to Do" page! Or check out the San Marcos Visitor Guide.

If you're in the mood for fun, our specialty packages are famous. Die laughing at a murder mystery, run a whitewater river,
learn some gourmet secrets. Taste wine, take a carriage ride, have a romantic interlude, get pampered in our very own spa.

The Crystal River Inn is especially known for our hilarious murder mystery weekends. Each year we do a New Year's Eve
Mystery Gala, two January mysteries including a mother-daughter event, and mysteries in February, March, August,
September, and on Halloween weekend. Book them early, even if it's several months away, because they are popular and
the best rooms fill up quickly.

Corporate retreats, birding, wine tasting, horseback riding, river trips (canoeing, rafting, and tubing), wildflower expeditions
and candlelight cave tours. Whichever package you choose, or whether you want to come to the beautiful Hill Country to
simply chill out and enjoy, we promise to send you home relaxed and smiling. After all, the spirit up here is practically magic!
We look forward to seeing you soon.
