Open Air Resorts’ first day of business was June 15, and owners Joe Connors and Joel Canfield opened with the vision of building a family-friendly retreat. About 45 minutes outside of downtown Austin, the resort features tiny homes and Airstream trailers available for rent.

“They had this vision of making it into a place to come and have your weekend getaway with your family,” General Manager Michelle Bush said.

Bush calls Open Air Resorts an oasis surrounded by rolling hills, lake views, vineyards and golf courses, and guests can enjoy amenities, such as a pool and volleyball court.

The resort is available for nightly, weekly and monthly stays, and guests may bring their own RVs or Airstreams into the rental pool. According to Bush, the site has attracted a close-knit community of young adults, families and retirees.

Open Air also hosts public events, including a Labor Day Bark and Brew collaboration with Austin Pets Alive.

Bush said over the next couple of months, the resort will see the addition of more units.
