They really have the most beautiful venue and amazing packages for the price! As a wedding coordinator myself, they exceeded expectations on everything- they coordinated and helped plan, they did my florals and linens, they did the food (guests were raving for ages) and beverages as well. I couldn’t have asked for better service! Jessica J- Feb 2017

Attended a cancer survivors dinner last night and had a great time and good food. The atmosphere is quite pleasant and if I were going to have a function I would certainly put this place at the top of the list. The food was plentiful, hot and very delicious.

I truly cannot have imagined a more perfect wedding day! Thistlewood is a gorgeous venue inside and out! Tricia and Leslie are the most amazing, kind, and talented people and they made our wedding day a breeze. We utilized them for our catering, bartending, florals, and coordinating! Tricia is not only so sweet and easy to work with, but she is also a phenomenal chef. We received endless compliments about the food and were so thankful to have some to take home after the wedding. Leslie is essentially Wonder Woman. She is on top of everything and made our day so effortless. The florals were stunning and the way Leslie was able to enhance our very unique centerpieces is beyond words. I walked into the venue the morning of my wedding and my jaw dropped. I literally felt like I was walking into a fairytale. We highly recommend Thistlewood Manor!!!! Maya – April 2017
Last night we held our annual American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Hays County Survivor Reception at Thistlewood Manor and it was absolutely beautiful!! From the convenient location, to the layout of the venue, to the food and staff, to the volunteers…the night was perfect! We had around 75 people (25 cancer survivors and their caregivers) and everyone enjoyed it!! Even the grounds cat, Tiger, was a pleasant addition to the night. Thank you thank you thank you Tricia. May God continue to guide your path!! Jodi D – April 2017
