HOPE FARMS VACATION RENTAL, F1 RACE LODGING

Austin Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Farmhouse, 6 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 12-20)

Hope Farms is a 5000 sq ft country estate home on a 54 acre river bottom farm and ranch. It is located 2 miles from Smithville, Texas, a historic railroad town with its own museum and a host of antique shops.

The town is noted for Sandra Bullock movie 'Hope Floats'. 'The Tree of Life' with Brad Pit and Shawn Penn filmed in Smithville.

The small town atmosphere is much like the movie, yet it only 35 minutes up Highway 71 to Austin's ABIA airport. Attractions in the area include the new Hyatt Regency at Lost Pines facility. There are four golf courses in the area, and two state parks. The farm setting is very unique as you can enjoy the breeze under the shade trees and watch and feed the longhorns, cows and their babies while they graze the fertile fields. It is never to hot with the cool swimming pool to enjoy. Their is also a 8' diameter hot tub in pool area.

Great.

We had a mini-reunion there two weeks ago, and everything was perfect. I think we ended up having 23 people, and it was never crowded. There are bedrooms and pull-out beds and couches everywhere. The best thing, in my opinion, was the size of the gathering rooms; the kitchen was enormous, the living room was huge, and the family room was incredible. What a treat this was for our whole family.

My family meet for Christmas every year, and this year we chose Hope Farms. The house was spacious, functional and met all of our needs. Our group consisted of 8 children and 12 adults. There was room for everybody! The owners even had a decorated Christmas tree waiting for us when we arrived. The customer service was excellent.

We had a wonderful family Thanksgiving here. The kitchen is huge and there was plenty of room for everyone to gather and prepare our meal. The kitchen is well stocked with plenty of dishes and utensils and had a large refrigerator and freezer. We had great walks and the kiddos loved feeding the cattle. The hot tub was big enough for us to enjoy together. The only disappointment was the pool. It is not actually enclosed and the chilly weather kept us out of it. My 12 year old niece said we should make this a Thanksgiving tradition!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind review. Normally, Thanksgiving has mild weather. The extreme cold front dropped temperatures over 30 degrees in the pool making it difficult to build heat up in the pool.
The pool was 50 degrees and heated up to 76 degrees, and was unable to to reach our desired temperature of 82 degrees because of the cold weather.

We will consider putting plastic over greenhouse structure in the the cold months.

Thanks,

family reunion

We have rented the Hope Farms for three years during June. We have such a wonderful time and our grand children and family already are looking forward to another vacation there if possible.
They all loved the pool and the game room .
Tom was good to come and check the pool and clean each morning.
We enjoy the large kitchen and eating area.
We would totally recommend the location for families getting together and spending time together under the same roof. !
The large T,V, and den area was enjoyed by those who were more or less "house bound".
Thanks again to Zandra and Tom for sharing this place with us................

Great place for large group

We rented Hope Farms for a family reunion (20 people) and found it to be perfect for our needs (single story with 6 separate bedrooms plus spacious family/TV room for teenagers/young adults). The large kitchen was great and screen-covered pool was in constant use due to 100+ temps in June. The house was maintained well and Tom cleaned the pool every morning. The owners were very personable, attentive and accommodating, slipping in to do maintenance, but practically invisible. Highly recommend for large groups.

Owner's Response: Hope Farms is great for sharing the rural farm atmosphere, with the animals and the huge Longhorns. The home allows ample room for groups and the serenity is great.
