The only bad part of a vacation is putting all the pieces together: finding the right place that's close to everything you want, but far from the hustle-bustle of the big city. Ideally, the best vacation is one that plans itself; short of that, there are a number of vacation packages with plenty of options. If you're looking at the wide-open frontier of Texas, you can pick the package that suits you best.

Package Deals Let You Leave Your Worries at Home

Hotels large and small have package deals that give you options during your vacation, but make it simple so you can have a no-brainer getaway. Sometimes the smaller hotels, inns, and bed and breakfasts can be more flexible and accommodating than the big chains. Generally, they are more likely to be owner-operated, so you'll get personal attention from the people who've invested their time and energy into the operation.

The Mariposa Ranch Inn in Brenham, Texas is an example of a one-of-a-kind bed and breakfast that has vacation packages with plenty of variables. If all you need is a checkered blanket and a picnic basket, they'll gladly help--they might even draw you a map to the nearest flowery field. Of course, staying on the grounds is a lot of fun, too: all the building and furnishings are historic, most dating back to the mid-1800s.

The staff at Mariposa will do all it can to make your vacation as spectacular--or as quiet--as you want. From breakfast in bed to an afternoon massage, ask and the staff will try to make it happen. You can even request an "enchanted evening" and your cozy cabin will be set and waiting for you when you arrive. It's not exactly a dinner that makes itself, but it's close.
