Canyon of the Eagles, Local Attractions

Canyon of the Eagles Nature Park

Canyon of the Eagles is located just 10 minutes from Rainbow Hearth a Texas Hill Country Bed and Breakfast Spa Retreat Center.

Our guests can stay in our luxurious suites, and visit Canyon of the Eagles to enjoy the observatory, rent kayaks, or do many other outdoor activities.

Many people ask us “what to do” around Rainbow Hearth. The answer depends on you.

Rainbow Hearth is a place for people to come de-stress and reconnect with each other, with nature, and with their own spirit. For many, the thing “to do” while at Rainbow Hearth is a whole lot of nothing! In other words, relax! It can take a day or two just to let go and sink into a comfortable reality that doesn’t include buzzing alarm clocks, TV, appointments and activities.

We get wrapped up in our busy lives and accustomed to being busy and active around the clock - we forget what real relaxation can feel like! Enjoy your visit by sleeping in, taking naps, reading a good book (you can always borrow one of our books from our library), getting a therapeutic bodywork session, enjoying the scenery while sipping a cup of tea or just taking pleasure in the peaceful, beautiful surroundings.

Sometimes a nice hike, kayak adventure or other nature outing can be invigorating additions to our guests’ stay. And since we are a pet friendly bed and breakfast on Lake Buchanan, you can take your pets to Canyon of Eagles for some extra play time.
