Texas Wineries with Lodging

When visiting Texas wineries, one of the most fun things to do is actually stay overnight at a winery. A lot of times the winery may have live music at night which lets you enjoy the music with a bottle of wine and not have to worry about driving home or to the local hotel. How nice it is to just walk to the winery’s lodging to stay the night.

We have stayed overnight at a couple winery’s and have enjoyed every minute. In our last trip to Fredericksburg we were considering staying at a winery, but the ones we were aware of were already booked. Hence the birth of this post which is what Texas wineries actually have lodging.

Doing a little research of websites and knowledge from visiting wineries, we found the Texas wineries which have lodging. If we have missed one, please let us know and we will gladly add it to the list so everyone will know it is available. The following are listed in alphabetical order within each region we have on the website of hopefully all the wineries in Texas.

Central:

Becker Vineyardshttp://www.beckervineyards.com/the-estate/the-history

Becker Vineyards has a log homestead cabin circa 1890 which is the original homestead. Its renovation was completed in 1997 and for years served as a charming Bed and Breakfast.  It is no longer in operation as a B&B but is reserved for special guests of the winery and used in conjunction with wedding parties and special celebrations.

Flat Creek Estatehttp://www.flatcreekestate.com

Flat Creek Estate does not advertise they have a bed and breakfast on the website because it is one room and is booked a lot for weddings. It can be reserved for up to 6 people. There is a full kitchen and patio with grill. They also book their Vintner’s Quarters often on the nights of their special dinners which is done on the first Saturday of every month plus a few additional “theme dinners” throughout the year.
