The Texas Hill Country is an ideal place for a romantic getaway. With beautiful scenery, a plethora of wineries, national parks, and natural attractions, there’s no shortage of romantic experiences throughout the region. If you’re interested in putting together a romantic trip to Canyon Lake, here are some ideas that will inspire you to begin planning your trip.

Why a Canyon Lake Romantic Getaway?

If you and your significant other are looking to get away from it all, Canyon Lake is the perfect place for a romantic trip. Whether you’re interested in a romantic weekend getaway or an extended honeymoon or anniversary stay, Canyon Lake is a great place to get away from it all without needing a passport. The lake is surrounded by lush green forest that reaches up to a 7,000-foot elevation. This provides an idyllic setting for spending time with your honey while also being close enough to larger cities like San Antonio to enjoy attractions like the famous River Walk Cruise.

Additionally, there are several activities available at Canyon Lake (and the surrounding area) that will allow you to have fun as a couple while experiencing something new. You could go kayaking in your own boat or rent one out at one of the marinas on the lake, enjoy the Historic Gruene District, go tubing down the Guadalupe River, or enjoy one of the many spas in the Texas Hill Country area.

You can also explore antique shops, get some drinks at Texas’ oldest honky tonk or enjoy many of the different wineries. The list of things to do in this area is endless, or you can just enjoy a breathtaking view and cuddle with your sweetheart for the weekend. Whatever you choose, Canyon Lake is a great place for lovers. 

Start with a Canyon Lake House Rental on the Water

The Sanctuary at Canyon Lake is a luxury vacation rental located on the shores of Canyon Lake. The entire first floor of this spacious home is a large suite complete with a cozy fireplace and a hot tub on a private deck overlooking the lake. It can’t get more romantic than that. 

This property also includes direct access to the lake and kayaks on the property if you and your sweetie want to head out for an adventure. Guests of this home enjoy 1,000 square feet of outdoor living space and a fire pit to cuddle up next to in the colder months. Think of it as a cozy cabin, but better.

With such beautiful and comfortable accommodations, you may not want to leave to explore the area, but if you do – there’s plenty to experience and amazing memories to make. 

Visit a Local Spa

You can indulge your senses with a full body treatment at the spa. Start with a relaxing hot stone couples massage, then add some individual treatments if you choose. Looking and feeling your best will get the weekend off to a great start.  A day at the spa will leave you feeling blissful and ready for an intimate dinner together.

Enjoy a Romantic Dinner for Two

Consider starting your intimate dinner at a restaurant like Gennaro’s Trattoria. This restaurant has an outdoor dining area overlooking the Texas hills and a romantic atmosphere. The menu offers a wide range of Italian choices that consistently receive rave reviews. Enjoy dessert and wine while you chat with your date and enjoy the view.

Take A Drive to New Braunfels on River Road

For an unsurpassed Hill Country experience, take the scenic drive down River Road. River Road is a beautiful way to get to the city of New Braunfels from Canyon Lake. The 20-minute drive gives you views of the river and the beautiful surroundings. 

Once you arrive in New Braunfels, you can shop in the Gruene Historic District or enjoy a drive-in movie under the stars. 

Take a Texas Hill Country Wine Tour

Hill Country is known for its wineries, and a wine tour can be the perfect way to experience what the region has to offer. These tours usually have several tasting destinations, with some even taking guests to Fredricksburg or stopping for Texas BBQ. A wine tour can be a fun way to unwind and enjoy the day together. 

Have Fun on the Guadalupe River and Canyon Lake

Sit back and relax with your partner on a tubing trip down the Guadalupe River or take a kayak out onto the lake. With so much water around, Canyon Lake is the perfect place to enjoy the outdoors together without the need for camping. Even if it’s too cold to dip your toes in, the Sanctuary at Sacred Mesa offers a beautiful view to enjoy over a mug of hot chocolate with the one you love.
