My husband and I stayed at Inn at Dos Brisas for two nights last weekend in the Jasmin casita to celebrate our anniversary. This place was amazing, where do I begin as we certainly did not want to leave and cannot wait to go back! A little over an hour from home but felt a world away. The property is so relaxing and the staff was the epitome of hospitality. Definitely a splurge but worth every penny!
Upon check-in to our casita we were greeted with a bottle of wine and cheese tray. We had intended to spend the afternoon lounging by the pool but could not get up from the chaise lounges on our back porch with view of the horses.
Farm Tour: Farmer Lisa gave us a very educational and tasty farm tour, showing all the organic gardening and crops. We were even given a veggie basket to take home and enjoy.
Trail Ride & Picnic: This was my husband's first time to ride a horse, despite being a native Texan, and Rick made him very comfortable in the saddle as we enjoyed a trail ride around the property followed by a delicious romantic picnic lunch under a shade tree near the heart pond.
The food!!!: Chef Zach and Sommelier Thomas are so talented as each dish and wine were expertly prepared and selected. The first night we had the 7 course dinner with wine pairings and the second night we had the special 12 course tasting menu with wine pairings which ended up being 16 courses b/c Chef Zach had some many delicious items for us to try. Between the food and the wine we really felt like we had traveled the world but in reality were barely an hour from home. The 12+ course dinner was one of the best dining experiences we've ever had. The meals combined with farm tour was a true farm to table experience. We also thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast which was a good mix of fruit, pastries, yogurt, eggs, and bacon. And the Sunday brunch could not be beat, the perfectly appetizer portion omelette and the fantastic chicken and waffles were the perfect way to wrap up the trip. Ashley and Stephanie were also entertained us as they served our courses at various meals.
