Ready for a lone star staycation? Look no further than the perfectly retro Stonewall Motor Lodge, a perfectly restored classic 1960s motel nestled nestled along the 290 Wine Trail.

Originally built in 1964, the Stonewall has plenty of rustic Texas charm. Its 12 remodeled midcentury modern rooms boast a stylish teal and earth-tone color scheme and 1960’s artwork, patterns, and furniture. No mini motel soaps here— treat yourself to complimentary William Roam products in a stylishly tiled bathroom.

For extra privacy, the Stonewall also offers four cabins; one with one king bed and the others with two queens. All of the midcentury charm, but no shared walls. Each of the cabins has a sitting area out on the porch, perfect for taking in a quiet Texas morning with a cup of complimentary coffee!

The Stonewall goes the extra mile for guest amenities with an indoor guest lodge and a second floor sun deck with two fire pits for guests to mingle. The motor lodge sits on three gorgeous oak tree-filled acres and the Stonewall has set up an indoor/outdoor space called The Barn for socializing, opening a bottle of wine, and listening to live music under the lights and the stars.

No visit to the 290 wine trail would be complete without a trip to the famous local wineries! The Stonewall is less than 30 minutes’ drive to over 50 wineries, including Arrowhead Creek Vineyards, Ab Astris Winery, Kuhlman Cellars, Ron Yates Winery, Grape Creek Vineyards, and Lost Draw Cellars. 

The Stonewall is also very close to some of the area’s best spots for taking in natural beauty.


A walking trail accessible ranch showcasing the former president’s boyhood home and a self-guided tour through LBJ State Park.


A short country drive away, Pedernales is a beautiful spot for to go hiking, mountain biking, bird watching, geocaching, or horseback riding. The river offers a great spot for fishing, swimming, and tubing. 


A favorite in the area, Enchanted Rock is a massive pink granite dome that gives spectacular views of Central Texas. It’s a magical place for backpacking, geocaching, rock climbing, hiking, and stargazing.
