wedding at the plant

  • 5 of 5
This was my husband and I's first choice when deciding on a venue for our wedding. We both have a love for architecture and design and this contemporary home with the outdoor space in the hill country was the perfect setting for what we envisioned. We both love the outdoors and that is where we spend much of our time, so it made sense to get married outside at sunset with an outdoor party following. I will admit that I was concerned about the distance from Austin, because a majority of our guests were coming from not only out of town, but out of state, plus we wanted people to enjoy themselves and not have to worry about drinking and driving. Therefore we chartered buses, and as far as we heard they worked out flawlessly. This was my biggest concern, but all the feedback was positive. Many of our friends and family had funny stories from their bus trips that made the entire experience more memorable. The owners were wonderful to work with, very accommodating to any special requests we made and they were a pleasure to work with. The property was in perfect condition and it was seamless for our rental company, catering company and band to load in and out. Our guests all raved about the location and will not soon forget the event. It is such a unique venue that your event will definitely be memorable. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone for not only events but a fun getaway. It made our wedding so special and unique and we would not change a thing. We look forward to using this venue again and again for romantic getaways to our future anniversary parties. The owners were excellent to work with and the venue was a spectacular locale.
Thank you.
Sincerely,
Stephanie & Michael

Birthday Pool Party!

  • 5 of 5
What a fabulous way to remember my special birthday! Friends relaxed in the pool, enjoyed the sampling of local wildflowers on the tables, and had homemade gumbo with key lime pie for desert! Topping it off was some unforgettable music from good friends! The acoustic sounds emanating from the beautiful fireplace was very special indeed! We are so grateful to the owners for their gracious help and flexibility! Thank you for an unforgettable evening!

Owner's Response: As this guest has discovered and shared, even during the height of summer heat (and even during the coldest chill of winter), The Plant is a great place to spend special occasions with friends and family.

We loved our stay at the Plant!

  • 5 of 5
We held our wedding ceremony and reception on the grounds and it was even better than we ever imagined. The striking architecture and landscape provided a beautiful backdrop to an extraordinary night. The Plant is a unique space and it will be special to us for years to come. We look forward to the next occasion that we can use as an excuse to stay at the Plant again!

Fantastic Getaway for Spring Break

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I were looking for a getaway with our 5 children for Spring Break. We wanted someplace with land so the kids could play outside and explore their surroundings. I wanted a beautiful house with modern amenities, my husband wanted a gourmet kitchen to do a lot of cooking/baking, and my mother-in-law wanted a quiet relaxing place to read. We found it all in this house. Our children had 17 acres to explore and they saw buzzards, donkeys, and even a fox. The owners provided everything you could possibly need, linens, towels, paper towels ... We were even greeted with a nice bottle of wine upon our arrival. The kitchen is gorgeous and we were provided with everything you could possibly imagine and more to cook a gourmet meal. The huge fireplace in the living room provided the perfect spot for my mother-in-law to unwind and read her books. She loved having the fire at night and our children had so much fun going outside and finding extra firewood. (the owners did provide plenty of firewood)
The screened in porch is huge and provided endless hours of fun, we made S'mores every night in the fire-pit while the adults rocked in the rocking chairs while talking and drinking wine.
We highly would recommend this house to family and friends and look forward to returning in the summer months when the kids can swim in the pool.

Celebration despite the weather!

  • 5 of 5
My family stayed at The Plant, enjoying the locale as well as the verve of the space! The younger kids loved the natural items, and exploring the up and down stairs. The adults loved being able to sit at a big table for meals. Everyone slept well.

When our evening celebration had to move into The Plant due to threatening weather, it was obviously a much easier place to host a big gathering than our yard! All of our guests loved the architecture, and the openness!
There was room for the caterers, the musicians, and ample useable areas for our guests.
We had an unforgettable gathering- and we are certain we will be hosting another party there!

Many thanks to the very helpful owners! Martha and Jamie Kinscherff

Staying at the The Plant

  • 4 of 5
Pros: There is something really special about this place. We just had my wife's birthday party there with some friends and everyone thought it what so awesome. It has interesting architectural history, personality, scenery, solitude, and the biggest screen-in porch area you have ever seen. It’s adult and child friendly along with a covered pool area that makes sitting by the pool less miserable in the Texas summers. The layout allows for a variety of events or just a good-ole get away for the family. The owners were very nice and accommodating. The property was clean with everything working properly. I would completely recommend this property.
Cons: Bed mattresses; strange neighbor.
