    The newly renovated rooms at this Texas hotel offer views of the historic village of Salado.

The Stagecoach Inn in Salado recently reopened following a two year, multiphase renovation. The historic property was built in the 1860s and now features 48 guest rooms, including four suites with balconies and outdoor patios. The hotel is located on Main Street and nestled among six acres of ancient oak trees along the southern banks of Salado Creek.

The project included the installation of hand-built custom beds, lighting and textiles, as well as plant-lined private outdoor lounge areas. The Stagecoach Inn provides groups with 7,000 square feet of multipurpose event space, with more coming in 2019. Additional amenities include the Stagecoach Inn Restaurant, The Shady Villa Bar and a heated outdoor pool.

“We are excited to finally be able to share what we’ve been working on the past two years,” says co-developer Clark Lyda. “Stagecoach Inn and its generations of guests hold a special place in our hearts and we hope the efforts to revitalize and honor this treasured landmark will be appreciated by all who walk through its doors.”

Who says you can’t have a meeting without some pampering mixed in? Several hot springs resorts in the U.S. Mountain West can accommodate smaller meetings complete with lodging, function space, din- ing and soaking. Some even have on-site spas and other standout features like an ice museum or microbrewery to include on an itinerary.

 

Erase any vision you might have of a dude ranch, especially the “City Slicker” version. For the purposes of this story, let’s use the name ranch resort and picture a big dose of vision and thousands of acres for both herds and people to roam. It’s a fairly different option, but one with similar friendliness and the Western spirit of a dude ranch.

 

To say Wisconsin is having a moment would be an understatement. A statewide renaissance resulting in plenty of new developments, impressive renovations and entrepreneurial ventures has been years in the making and shows no sign of slowing anytime soon.
