It’s the “ultimate back yard”

In the Spring, you can make a “bee line” through our fields of wildflowers on a Bee Train! In the Fall, you can explore some twisty-turny trails carved into a 4-acre Corn Maze! Stir in yard games, pumpkins, live entertainment, tempting food and friendly farm animals — put it all on the banks of the Colorado River!

It’s a weekend destination for friends and family that’s just a short country drive from Austin!

A sample of the fun:

Maggie’s Meadow

Enjoy a picnic lunch under the centuries old cottonwood trees while watching the sheep graze and goats play in Maggie’s Meadow, all on the banks of the Colorado River. You’ll find a few swings there, too. Enjoy the view!

The Verde

Yep, it’s always green! This lovely courtyard area is home to our giant Jumping Pillow. Enjoy old-fashioned yard games like Corn Hole, Sack Races and more. Team up on the Volleyball Court. Sound like fun?

The Lively @ Port Barker

The central attraction in Happy Valley is our replica of the Stephen F. Austin’s famous ship — the Lively! But there’s lots more than digging in this “lively” sand box!  Games and activities for kids from 2 to 92!

Toe-Tapping Sing-along Tunes

Live Texas Country & Bluegrass Music Everyday

Nothing says it’s Fall in Texas better than sipping a brew-or-two while listening to some good ole honky-tonk and Southern Bluegrass music. We serve it up fresh on the shady banks of the Colorado River! Hear tunes by local favorite Central Texas dance hall troubadours. Live music starts Saturdays around 1pm and runs until early evening. On Sundays the music starts just before noon and runs until mid-afternoon.
