Let us Host Your Next Event
Sage Hill Inn Above Onion Creek is the ideal location for events with up to 150 guests. We are situated on 90 acres that is surrounded on three sides by over 2,000 acres of City of Austin open space, conservation land and a private ranch, creating a Hill Country oasis only minutes from downtown Austin. We offer a range of facilities that have been host to countless weddings, corporate events, retreats, private parties and even smaller group getaways. Our staff can help you plan a range of options to make sure your event is tailored just the way you like it.
The Inn hosts dozens of weddings every year and has been featured several times by Style Me Pretty and Jenny De Marco. With our recent property-wide overhaul the Inn is now in a better place than ever to provide couples with the perfect place to tie the knot. Improved guest rooms, facilities and grounds along with our new Garden Spa ensure that the bride and groom and all of their guests have everything they need to have the wedding of lifetime.
In 2013 the inn hosted nearly seventy five midweek corporate retreats – the majority from repeat businesses. Because of it’s central location close to many major Texas cities and being only minutes from downtown Austin, all while providing a quite and reflective setting to focus on the business at hand, the inn is well known as a go to location for businesses that want to get the team focused on important business while letting the staff attend to your every need. Imagine after a day of meetings your team comes out energized, stays together for dinner and enjoys the night around the fire pit, going for a hike, throwing some horse shoes or washers, or relaxing in the new 12 person hot tub. The experience has kept groups coming back for years. Along with a host of property-wide improvements this past year, we also remodeled our main meeting room, and renovated a larger guest unit to cater to groups. There has never been a better time to book your group at the Inn!
