Strawberry Pines Comes To Life For Writers

In January, we were thrilled to host a group of exceptional women, writers, and mostly Texans for a writing and business retreat. They called it Queso Extreme. We’re just saying it looked like a great time.

The group of 12 women comfortably fit in our conference room in the Ranch House to discuss their plans for 2016, but they also enjoyed taking in the rest of the property as they relaxed and brainstormed throughout the weekend.

The group included Emmy winner Laura Mayes, NYT best selling author Jenny Lawson, and co-founder and Executive Director of Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls Meredith Walker – just to name a few!

At night they spread out between the three houses so there was plenty of room for all to sleep.

They took advantage of the kitchen space in the Ranch House to make all their own meals. We were happy to pick up their groceries from the local HEB before they arrived, so the refrigerator was stocked and ready to go from the minute they dropped their bags. This is a service we offer to all who stay with us.

We pride ourselves on Strawberry Pines being a peaceful escape for all kinds of groups. We love weddings, of course, but the Pines is a fantastic place to gather with co-workers, too. We’ll make sure you have plenty of coffee!
