Inn at Dos Brisas, Texas

Twenty minutes from Houston by helicopter, The Inn at Dos Brisas is the only Relais & Chateaux property in Texas, with nine Spanish-style casitas designed with exposed wood beams, caramel-colored leather furnishings, and rustic stone fireplaces. Offering both English- and Western-style riding experiences, the property’s 313-acre grounds feature picturesque rolling meadows and groves to explore by horse. The onsite Dos Brisas Equestrian Center has the state’s second-largest indoor riding ring, providing guests lesson in horsemanship skills with professional trainers. Those less comfortable in the saddle can book an old-fashioned carriage ride helmed by the hotel’s two Clydesdales (a breed of traditional working horses originally from Scotland), Sampson and Monroe.
