Texas Outside’s Review & Rating of Open Air Resorts in Spicewood, Texas
Open Air Resorts is a new (June 2019) RV resort with RV, tent, and tiny home sites; tiny home and airstream rentals; lots of amenities; and friendly service in Spicewood, just 45 minutes west of Austin. Private individuals built this fantastic RV resort and selected Advanced Outdoor Solutions as the management company to ensure the Resort is managed and maintained at the highest level possible.
Open Air Resorts is perfect for a quiet getaway in the country yet it’s conveniently located and close to lots of nearby fun things to see and do. The Resort is pet-friendly and kid-friendly with several amenities that kids will enjoy – but will your dog enjoy the dog wash?
Open Air Resorts is well maintained, the staff is outgoing, and all of the roads and sites are paved. And best of all it's peaceful and quiet!
On our one night visit to Open Air Resort, we stayed in one of the Airstreams and really enjoyed our stay.The Airstream was well landscaped with two planters and we could sit on the large deck and enjoy the view of the trees and fishing pond with a fountain. The wooden deck had an awning covering a bench seat and a table with three chairs. There was also a picnic table with an umbrella, BBQ grill, and a fire ring.
The Airstream was very comfortable and very well stocked with pots and pans, utensils, coffee, towels, linens, shampoo, and more – everything you need for a fun glamping experience. The floors were laminated wood and the living area was surrounded with windows to let the outdoors in! In the living area was a couch, loveseat that makes into a bed, flat-screen TV, table with seating for four, and a portable heater. The kitchen area had a refrigerator, microwave, Keurig coffee maker, stove with oven, sink, and wine cooler.
The bathroom had a toilet, shower, small hammered copper sink, plenty of towels, conditioners, and body lotion. The bedroom had a comfortable double bed with sheets and spread, four pillows with extra pillows in storage area. There is a side cabinet with lamp, small clock, and two drawers.
During our stay, we enjoyed a great meal, friendly service, and a view of Lake Travis at Lighthouse Restaurant about 10 minutes away. After dinner, we stopped by Poodies Roadhouse, a funky country bar that Willie Nelson used to own, for some music and a nightcap
The next morning we drove a minute down the road to play 18 holes of golf at Lakecliff – what a spectacular Arnold Palmer design. Read our review of Lakecliff to learn more about why we rated this course a 9.2 out of ten.
We hated to leave and next time we'll stay for a couple of days.
