    I really need to get away for a few days so Martin and I are thinking of traveling somewhere within driving distance.

    Has anyone on here been to Turner Falls, OK? I hear it's a nice area. We were thinking of renting a cabin and taking at least one of the dogs with us. If you've been there do you have any lodging suggestions?

    The main purpose of this trip is to R E L A X so we'd also be open to spa resorts or something like that. A pool would be GREAT! I did find this place which looks awesome but I'm not sure how far away it is (it's in the TX Hill Country). 3x the price of a little cabin so we'd probably stay for 2 nights instead of 3 but it includes breakfast, appetizers, dinner, sodas, water, wine & beer for $299/night. And it has a pool :) Here's the link: Escondida: The Texas Country Reporter Hacienda

    I'd say $299/night is definitely our max budget - anymore than that and we might as well put it towards a quick trip to Cancun or something.

    We all stayed at The Marriott in P.V., and Honeymooned at The Royal Plantation in Ochos Rios, Jamaica!

      I'm from Dallas, and was supposed to go with my mom and sister and her family to Turner Falls but couldn't make it. However they LOVED it. My niece went with her mom and brother and they also loved it. Both times was just a day trip so they didn't stay but I'm sure it would of been fun too. I like Los Colinas near Irving. If you've never been there. My sister got married there. There is a gorgeous I think Omni hotel with spa. It's been a while since I've been there though. I'm sure its expanded. Theres a lake and canal and its gorgeous. Have fun!

        Jaime,
        I've been to Turner Falls and it was so much fun, the waterfalls are beautiful. We stayed right by the falls, but I didn't like the cabin that we stayed in so much, it had a great location but it was very old. I did like that I was able to take my dog. In fact I've been looking at places to stay in again, I would like to go with Mark and our dog. Let me know what you find.

        The hacienda looks awesome!

            It's the Omni Mandalay in Las Colinas ....we actually got ready for my sisters wedding there and it is gorgeous. However I just saw the OP and I'm not sure the price there. Hers a link though:
            Las Colinas Hotels | Luxury Dallas Hotel in Irving - Omni Hotels

              Ok so there are a few hotels down there. I think the Omni is in your price range. Theres a spa and a few packages all under 200 dollars. And it is downtown so right across the street from the canal and by all the shops!

                I've heard of the Omni Mandalay but I think we want to get a little further out of town. We stayed at the Omni by the airport while we were in between house & apartment and it was really nice. They also had a lake with jogging trails, etc.

                      OR...You could head this way and stay on the river and spend a few days floating it. What's more relaxing than floating in the river with a drink in hand?

                      Except that you may not find a place on a short notice, so scratch that. ha!
