Texas Hill Country

  • 5 of 5
I spent Thanksgiving here with a large group and it was wonderful. The buildings are rustic and quaint with lots of charm but they have all the modern comforts and conveniences of home. The main building is huge. It has a large covered porch in the front and another in the back. The ceilings in the living area are two stories high and have huge windows all around. The kitchen in the main building is just amazing. We had five or six people cooking at the same time without getting in each other’s way. My favorite spot was the large fire pit next to the house where everyone could sit by the fire late into the night and tell stories. I’m pretty sure a few beers were consumed also. I would definitely go back again.

What a treat for our school

  • 5 of 5
This weekend 30 teachers from my school came here for a weekend away from Houston. It was the perfect getaway. Plenty of space for everyone to relax, great places for people to gather, comfortable beds for everyone (we also rented the compound next door), and beautiful grounds! There was also everything you could need - sports equipment, cooking utensils and flatware, linens, it was incredible. This was our fourth year having a staff development retreat and it was undoubtedly the best ever because of the accomodations.

Thank you SO much - we will be returning again next fall!

Family Reunion Treasure

  • 5 of 5
This is a great place for any large family or group to gather for fun, relaxation, and building special memories. The large, shaded porches with comfortable rocking chairs were perfect for visiting and reading. Everyone enjoyed playing basketball, pool, and ping-pong while others watched from the nice hammocks nearby. We all enjoyed sitting out under the huge pecan tree and gazing at the beautiful view. The property is clean and stocked with everything a big group needs for cooking and sitting down together for meals. The plentiful beds were comfortable and the bathrooms were filled with nice toiletries and thick towels. The owner made sure that we were comfortable and had everything we needed.
I will recommend Farr Side to anyone I know who needs a large, comfortable, relaxing spot to gather friends and family together!

Family Reunion Find!

  • 5 of 5
We spent Easter weekend at Farr Side and found it met and exceeded our expectations for our yearly family reunion. There is an adjacent property called moriah that we also occupied and there was plenty of sleeping room for all 25 of us. My favorite part was all the nice arrangement of seating on all the porches and near the lake - perfect for sitting around and visiting with family that you rarely see. The property is very well maintained and clean. I never left the property but Marble Falls is close and accessible for any necessities. I will (actually I already have) recommend the property to my friends.

Christmas in October

  • 5 of 5
Our family used this lovely property for Christmas in October, 2008. We have already booked for 2009. It is everything mentioned in the review and more. We had everything needed to accomodate our family of 19 for 3 nights. We cooked all our meals & had everything necessary to do a "Christmas " turkey dinner, There are games, a horse shoe pit, plenty of lighting for night scavenger hunt,TV for the football games, & the pool table was a big hit. The owner is most accomodating & even put up a Christmas tree for us! Grocery shopping in town is adequate & the corn maze is perfect for a family activity in Marble Falls. Thanks Farr Side for a great time in a clean well furnished house that we will use again & again.

Fabulous for a group

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful place for our family reunion! Lots of room to spread out and a big assortment of sleeping arrangements. Two big porches with lots of rocking chairs for sitting and talking. The game room kept the teenagers busy. The seating area under the pecan tree by the waters edge feels like a retreat in its self. There is a plenty of property for the kids to run and play games, volleyball and horseshoes were popular. Everything we needed was there, lots of pillows and blankets. And the kitchen was well stocked. The decor was attractive and clean, but still family comfortable.
