You don’t need to pack much for a stay at The Inn at Dos Brisas. The luxury ranch provides every comfort, including L’Occitane bath products in the guest rooms. The living here is easy, so pack accordingly. Here’s what you’ll need:
1. Your appetite. Okay, technically you can’t pack your appetite but it’s probably the single most important thing you can bring. We’re not suggested you juice fast before your visit but you’ll want to prepare for days of glorious eating. Your guest room reservation includes a complimentary breakfast and lunch on the following day of your visit. Inside your casita you’ll find a half bottle of champagne and charcuterie tray courtesy of the chef. Your mini fridge is also stocked with a bunch of free gourmet snacks. Try to resist, as your entire evening will be taken up by dinner.
2. Comfy clothes, plus a little dressier option for dinner. You’ll spend your day horseback riding and the like, so you’ll want to be comfortable. An overnight stay at The Inn at Dos Brisas also includes a guaranteed reservation in the resort’s Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star restaurant, where fresh, organic produce from the onsite farm is incorporated into innovative, mouthwatering dishes. The multi-course tasting is a treat and you’ll want to dress the part. The style here is casual elegant.
3. Sunblock and a hat. From early April through September, the hot summer sun shines down on this 300-acre ranch near the rural town of Washington, Texas. If your visit lands during these months, pack plenty of sunblock. Even with the shaded personal golf cart you’re given to navigate the grounds, the sun can be demanding.
4. Cowboy boots. One thing to squeeze into your suitcase is a pair of cowboy boots. Put them on for a horseback riding lesson, or dress the part and attend the annual Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo in early Spring.
5. A swimsuit. The Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel includes an infinity pool and Jacuzzi, so be sure to pack your swimsuit. You’ll want to spend the afternoon with a book and maybe lunch by the pool. The quiet spot overlooks the property’s rose garden.
