Embark on New Adventures

Your adventure is just beginning. There are endless possibilities to explore just outside your door. Located just minutes from the vibrant nightlife and music scene of downtown Austin, but nestled in a serene, resort-like setting of stony hills, oaks, and junipers, Querencia at Barton Creek is your launching pad. This is the place you’ll embark from and come back to after every thrilling escapade.

Because in the end, you won’t remember the times you spent in the office or mowing your lawn. Climb that mountain.
