Cozy up or escape the heat while enjoying craft cocktails.
We love our beautiful, urban Austin, but also truly appreciate a little escape to the Texas Hill Country where it’s quieter, the air is fresh and time slows. The Wayback is a casual boutique hotel 15 minutes west of downtown. Our style here is friendly, comfortable and classic. Surrounded by hills and a big Texas sky, The Wayback is a place to feel the breeze, be carefree and linger.
Eight classic board-and-batten cottages sit peacefully under the live oaks. Interiors are outfitted with a laid-back luxury, combining organic textiles, a bit of vintage, and lots of comfort.
Our cafe serves the best of local, incorporating the freshest ingredients on a seasonal menu that balances southern staples with newfound favorites. The patio and outdoor lawns are perfect for dining alfresco.
Lounge poolside and cool off in the heat of a Texas summer, or warm-up on a cool night while making s'mores around the fire.
The Wayback mingles with nature, inviting travelers to do the same. Come visit us...it's better out here.
