The Retreat at La Buena Vida Vineyards – Cottage Rentals


Quaint cottage rentals are available onsite, nestled among the vines at La Buena Vida Vineyards.  These units were featured on the DIY Network show “Texas Flip and Move”.  Uniquely decorated and named, each provides a fun experience for both business and vacation guests alike.  Overlooking 7.5 acres of mature grapevines with the most beautiful sunsets you’ve ever seen, guests can enjoy portable grills, an outdoor firepit, lighted pavilion, picnic tables and more for relaxation and making memories!  The brand new vineyard tasting room and balcony up the hill should be open beginning August 2018 offering lite bites and wine with patio seating.   A community laundry room is available near the cottages as well.   Sheep, sheep dogs, donkeys and more can be found on the property. Feel free to take a stroll up the gravel drive among the vines, a great morning ritual!
