About This Episode
Meet Dylan Barahona, General Manager at Canyon of the Eagles, a nature resort and preserve on 940 acres of land, located just 1.5 Hours from Austin, Texas.
If you were to have asked Dylan at ten-years-old what he wanted to be when he grew up, he’d tell you either a professional baseball player or a chef.
And while neither of those dreams quite panned out, the latter, dream set him on path to pursue a career in hospitality, and, over the last decade, Dylan has become a highly-regarded and respect voice in outdoor hospitality.
In this episode, Dylan and I discuss:
- How he’s reimagining outdoor hospitality through the restoration of 970 acres of Texas Hill Country
- The importance of building an event strategy at your glamping resort
- The future of fine dining in the glamping space
- The opportunities he sees for hospitality entrepreneurs in the space
- And so much more
