Score big on your next romantic getaway with a trip to The Inn at Dos Brisas. Only two hours from Austin, the 313-acre Spanish Colonial-style ranch ranks in the top 10 best romantic inns in the country, according to USA Today’s 10Best Readers’ Choice awards.

USA Today and 10Best asked followers to vote for their ideal lovey-dovey rural escape from a list of 20 nominees handpicked by a panel of travel experts. The Inn at Dos Brisas came in at No. 10.

From picturesque views of rolling meadows to a charming rose garden with 150 different floral varieties, the luxe resort was made for love. Cozy up under the light of the moon while stargazing. Wine and dine your date at the renowned five-star restaurant and take the magic to the next level with an in-room massage by a licensed spa therapist. Make it a night to remember in the sumptuous digs.

Nine lavish private guest homes offer cathedral ceilings, cozy stone fireplaces, French doors that open to a private patio overlooking lush meadows, and king-size beds with crisp Egyptian cotton sheets.

The Inn at Dos Brisas was the only Texas property to make the list. No. 1 is the Inn at Perry Cabin by Belmond (St. Michaels, Maryland), a colonial-style 19th century manor house.

Seven Gables Inn (Pacific Grove, California), Belfry Inn (Sandwich, Massachusetts), Lord Jeffery Inn (Amherst, Massachusetts), Vintage Inn (Yountville, California), Belmond El Encanto (Santa Barbara, California), Fearrington House Inn (Pittsboro, North Carolina), Goodstone Inn (Middleburg, Virginia) and Twin Farms (Barnard, Vermont) follow respectively.
