Magnolia is a small city in Montgomery Country, Texas. After a few name swaps and some very confused post offices, Magnolia came to bear its own, official name in 1903. Some 20 years later, the city was thriving with its community built around multiple large sawmills and general stores along with saloons, a barber shop, an ice cream store, a pharmacy, a school, and—of course—a railroad depot. The depot has since become a cultural epicenter for the city, serving as both a link to the past as well as a center for meetings, activities, and festivities for residents and visitors of Magnolia.
Today, the city is admired for remaining charming and quaint, while at the same time can support the need for residents to kick back and relax. Whether you’re a Magnolia resident or you’re visiting from out of town, there are plenty of great resorts to slip away to for a weekend getaway.
Here are some of the best resorts in and around Magnolia, TX:
Deer Lake Lodge & Spa
A 20-minute drive away from Magnolia you’ll find the Deer Lake Lodge Spa Resort. Hidden away from the city and nestled in the woods, this intermittent fasting retreat is prepared to help you drop all of your stress as well as feel and look a whole lot better. Self-described as a place of “healing, detoxification, rejuvenation, and revitalization,” the Resort promises to be a place in which you can “focus on you.”
There are multiple ways to spend your time here and relax, too. The Detox package invites you to enjoy your cabin with a daily cleansing program, natural toiletries, Wi-Fi, Direct TV, and a fire place. This program also invites you to enjoy the Fasting Lounge, where you can enjoy vegetable juices, aloe vera juice, a variety of teas, puréed single vegetable soup, and other supplements on a daily basis. Yoga classes, Life Enhancements, breathing and meditation sessions, and nutrition and raw food classes are all included as well. There are also plenty of classes you can take separately to help with your own wellness, such as Colon Hydrotherapy, Conscious Cleansing, and a Harmonizing Ritual, among others. This life-changing spa is always welcoming to those who need to unwind.
You can find the resort at 10500 Deer Lake Lodge RD., Montgomery, TX 77316, or call them at 936-647-1383.
The Woodlands Resort
This space was originally constructed as The Woodlands Inn, a meeting place to strategize the construction and expansion slated to take place throughout Montgomery Country. The Inn included a couple hundred rooms in which residents-to-be would stay and live while their homes were constructed throughout the county. Nowadays, the Resort has been renamed, but remains a very popular meeting place for work based in and around the Magnolia area.
Far beyond business, The Woodlands Resort is also a place for fun and relaxation for singles, couples, or families. Grab your club bag and enjoy the award-winning 36-hole golf course. Completely unwind and relax in the rejuvenating spa. Enjoy a splash of adrenaline and laughs in the waterpark and the new lazy river. Truly, a stay at The Woodlands Resort is nothing short of a blissful escape.
You can find the resort at 2301 N. Millbend Drive, The Woodlands, Texas, 77380, or call them at 281-367-1100.
Fisherman’s Cove Lakeside Resort
A slightly further drive away will lead you to Fisherman’s Cove Lakeside Resort, where you’ll be able to enjoy all the wonderful activities of a lake trip alongside all the pampering amenities you expect from a typical resort getaway.
Your stay here will have you impressed with the surprisingly space-efficient cabins. While the homes aren’t that big in terms of square feet, the space is very well utilized, making the rooms feel much bigger on the inside than they look on the outside. All the comforts in and outside of those cabins are also quite affordable, unlike some other resorts, which will get you to debating whether or not you’re just going to stay and live there!
You can take full advantage of the outdoors, too, going kayaking, jet-skiing and even boating or tubing on the lake. When it’s time to take a rest, kick back by the pool or in the Jacuzzi. Wherever your energy level might be at, Fisherman’s Cove has got you covered.
You can find the resort at 13260 FM 1097, Willis, TX 77318, or call them at 936-443-6600.
