About the Inn

Escape to the gracious southern hospitality of Inn on the Creek while enjoying the privacy, seclusion and romance of this intimate getaway just 50 miles north of Austin. Relax in this unspoiled, natural creek side setting nestled in between the tall cypress and the beautifully landscaped grounds. Picnic along the banks of Salado Creek, cozy up with a great book and a glass of wine on the porch or one of our hammocks, or leisurely stroll the many shops and galleries a few blocks away.

Inn on the Creek is an elegant 19-room Victorian inn with private-club style service and gourmet dining to satisfy any five-star palate. The staff provides concierge services throughout your stay and is always happy to accommodate special requests, whether you are one of our cherished guests or a visiting dignitary. Room rates include maid service for multiple-day stays and a full complimentary southern-style breakfast.

The original structure was built in 1882 in Cameron, Texas. It was moved to Salado in 1986 by the original innkeepers. The structure was fully restored and opened in March 1987. The Manor is nestled along the creek with a beautiful canopy of trees featuring seven exquisite guest rooms all with full baths.

Holland House:
Originally constructed in nearby Holland, Texas, now the house is situated across the street from the Manor. Restoration was completed in 1993, featuring five elegant guest rooms all with private baths.

Giles-Kindred House:
The Giles-Kindred House is perfect for families or small groups. The Giles-Kindred House is ideal for those seeking quiet, secluded privacy.

Gym on the Creek & Hot Tub

900 Gallons of Relaxation!
I have to say the new hot tub has got to be our favorite addition to the Inn! Our friends at The Backyard Toystore (located in Salado) exceeded our expectations with the installation of the new 11 seater Cal-Spa. (And I’m finally posting a picture so guests will know what to expect when they arrive…and to encourage our patrons to pack their swimsuits!) The jets massage away all the built up tension in your muscles while the combination of watching a beautiful sunset over Salado Creek & enjoying your favorite beverage make a path straight to relaxation! Inn on the Creek robes are perfect to wear down from your room, and the terry cloth lining is all you need to dry off after your “dip”.
