Old Activities

Blanco Dining

Our food is made fresh daily using premium products, local and organic whenever possible. We also use filtered water in everything we make.

We wanted to bring BBQ back in an inviting and relaxing environment – somewhere we’d want to spend an afternoon sharing with our friends and families. Our BBQ is simple: take good quality meats, add a light touch of seasoning, then cook just right to highlight the natural flavors.


Chess Club Cafe


Delicious Artisan sandwiches creatively prepared using fresh, locally sourced ingredients and pies made daily.  Josie's Kitchen is chef owned and operated.


The Blanco Bowling Alley serves good home cooking style food and has a nine pin bowling alley in the back. Nine pin bowling is an old German style of bowling that only exists in Texas. The Blanco Bowling Club is one of only eleven clubs in the state that is still in operation. The game of nine pin bowling is a bit different from the modern day ten pin. 

Oak Creek Cafe


Hacienda El Charro is a Tex-Mex Restaurant in Blanco Texas. Good food reasonable prices.

   Real Ale Brewery 

 Since 1996, we’ve been brewing in Blanco, surrounded by the natural beauty of the Texas Hill Country. When you get to make beer in a place like this, you develop a greater appreciation for the simpler things in life — fresh air, wide-open spaces, and working with your hands. We're proud to make beer with as little processing as possible. In addition to being unfiltered and unpasteurized, we never use preservatives or artificial colors. We start with water from the nearby Blanco River and the highest quality ingredients. Then we take the time to allow all the unique characteristics of the ingredients to shine. We believe doing less to the beer actually creates more complexity, aroma and flavor.

Head on out to the brewery just up 281N from your cottage, and taste the delicious variety of Real Ale’s brews! Tours and Tastings Thursday - Saturday from 11-5pm!
