The Inn at Dos Brisas – Washington, Texas


The Inn at Dos Brisas is a 9-room Relais & Châteaux retreat located on the foothills of the scenic Texas Hill Country. Steeped in ranch-style living, romance and adventure, the property was originally built as a private estate and now stands as an idyllic retreat for an authentic luxury ranch experience. The property has an exceptional culinary experience that is backed by the 42-acre USDA-certified organic farm. The farm specializes in heirloom fruits and seasonal vegetables that are cultivated without the use of hormones, synthetic fertilizers or pesticides and provides the daily-changing menu in the restaurant – an intimate Spanish country manor and the only Forbes Travel Guide five-star restaurant in Texas.

Executive chef Matt Padilla (previously at The Little Nell in Aspen) offers a vegetable-centric focus with creative Texan flair, to be paired with wines from the 7,000-bottle wine cellar. Guest’s staying one of the nine haciendas or casitas can enjoy “farm-to-room service” where menu ingredients come right from the farm to your room – think breakfast of a Bloody Mary using home-grown tomatoes paired with an omelet using eggs from the property chickens and heirloom vegetables grown on property. Room service can be delivered using the butlers pass – allowing meals to be delivered without disturbing the guest.

For a step up, the property offers a full buyout option, that will grant guests exclusive use of the entire 313-acre estate of plush meadows and pristine gardens, accompanied by an exceptional culinary program and truly customizable itineraries. Guests will have endless access to all seasonal activities, including carriage rides, horseback riding, fishing, clay target shooting, biking and more.
