Great Stay and Awesome Cooking School!

It was so fun to celebrate our anniversary in Wimberley at the Blair House Inn! The cooking school was fun and we learned some new things! Brian was great in the kitchen and let us be as hands on as we wanted to be! The accommodations were comfortable and relaxing! We stayed in the San Gabriel cabin and loved the privacy and the great views! The hot tub by the pool was amazing after being in the kitchen! We will be back! Thank you to the very friendly staff!
