You don't have to travel far to escape the doldrums of everyday life: According to Andrew Harper readers, one of America's top hideaways is only a few short hours away.   

The travel website's annual Reader's Choice roundup reveals the best hideaways in the United States, as determined by discerning travelers. And with three previous wins under its belt, Lake Austin Spa Resort claims the final spot on this year's short list of 20.

Andrew Harper describes the Central Texas gem as a "splendid 40-room destination spa on 19 lakeside acres." Here, guests can easily hide away in a wide range of accommodations, from cozy guestrooms to lush suites and private cabins — all of which offer stunning views and all-inclusive packages.

Nestled in a quiet bend of the Colorado River, the resort is rich in Hill Country charm and awash in modern amenities. The spa blends traditional treatments, such as massages, facials, and nail therapy, with innovative sessions involving energy point cleansing, acupuncture, and meditation.

Combine your typical spa experience with healthy dining options, outdoor fitness sessions, and a variety of classes, and you have both a relaxing and well-rounded retreat.

Lake Austin Spa Resort is no stranger to accolades. The Austin retreat was also included among the best luxury spas in the world in both Travel + Leisure and Condé Nast Traveler.
