This is a family property where we went almost every weekend and summers when I was growing up. We are out of state most of the time now and do not get to visit is as often as we would like so we are opening it up to others to enjoy our serene getaway property.

The property is secluded and offering peace and privacy. It allows you to unwind and forget about the stress and worries of the outside world. Comfy 2+ person quilted hammock.

Privacy Lovers: Look no further.....

This property was perfection for my family & I!
Being that we love spending our vacation time viewing the natural world, "Our Texas House" (as it was called by our young Grandson) provided unique opportunities to see that world, up close & personal! Of course we saw deer (including one herd of 27!)... but we also saw various types of lizards; and many varieties of birds, including owls, hawks, quail, multiple duck species...and several gorgeous White Herons (who appear to be regulars at one of the ponds). We also listened to & greatly enjoyeed the nightly chorale of coyotes! On one evening, this included the soundtrack of 45-minute chase/hunt that was successful for the pack....but not so much for what we assume was a wild hog....
The property is HUGE!
We walked it each of the seven days we were there- taking beautiful photos of beautiful Blue Bonnets & Live Oaks daily, yet still left many areas unexplored (for the next time we stay, hopefully!)
The lakes & ponds were very productive: we caught many Largemouth in the three & four pound class (a Zoom Black-Grape U-Tail worm, with a 2/0 Gamakatsu #243 hook was the "go-to" bait!)
The home itself was wonderful & perfect for vacationing!
And while we were only able to use the pool one day during the week that we were there, only the unusual weather could be blamed!
Washington-On-The-Brazos (the birthplace of Texas first government) is less than an hour north of the property, and well worth the trip for lover's of liberty!
And you can be on the beach at the barrier islands of Matagorda, in a few hours.
And for those who are not familiar with Buccee's, it is a "Destination Gas Station" not to be missed (I would have given 500-to-1 odds against those words ever being spoken/written by me before last week!)
Back to the review title, "Privacy Lovers": One of the goals of this trip was reconnecting with each other as family. Our ever more busy lives have in some cases meant jobs which take us hundreds -in one case, thousands- of miles from each other. Privacy was a major requirement for us....and the property provided that freedom to cast away all but each other, for a very special week.
So thank you Buzz for sharing your home and property with us.....and thank you Bill, for giving us such a thorough primer on the property, that we truly felt it was "Our Texas House"...each minute we spent there!

Lovely Home!

We stayed in this house because someone in our family was getting married in Hempstead just a few miles away. We thought it would be fun for us to spend time together with cousins, uncles, and grandmas that we don't normally get to see all in one house. We had such a wonderful weekend and the pool and porch swings were definitely our favorite place to hang out. We would love to go again. Thanks for letting us stay in your lovely home!

What a great vacation home for our group of ladies to enjoy. Plus the huge pool for relaxing away summer days. We also enjoyed walks down to the lake and gazebo and the short walk to the pond by our house. Felt away from it all,,, but close enough to town if we needed anything. Really loved the gated entrance, since it really helped our group feel safe and secure. We saw hawks and deer daily and some squirrels even had a drink out of the pool while we were in it. Just a lovely time and Buzz the owner and Bill the caretaker were very helpful. The grounds are beautiful,,,,,

Farm House

My two daughters and I stayed at this wonderful house for two nights. As said in other reviews, the pictures don't do it justice. There are huge oak trees everywhere. The scenery is just spectacular. We took several walks to the lake and noticed that some of the smarter members of nearby cattle herd were able to walk right over the cattle guard in the road. We saw deer and lots of egrets and squirrels. We found a hammock that we hooked up between the trees and we also swam in the crystal-clear swimming pool.

We ate dinner on the covered porch, complete with ceiling fans Everything we needed for meals was provided. The weather couldn't have been nicer and I hope we can come back the same time next year.
