Why Buz Dillon chose Brenham

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.

What makes this farmhouse unique

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.

Pefect Ranch Getaway Close to Town

  • 5 of 5
This place is really manicured and ideal for a perfect ranch getaway. The grounds really are well maintained and the fishing is fantastic especially for young kids - every kid caught their own fish. The oaks are beautiful and the scenery is tranquil. Even better, the ranch is about an hour away from the Inner Loop in Houston. Thank you for the amazing opportunity to experience this gem of a property.

Amazing Labor Day get-a-away!

  • 5 of 5
My family loved our 3 days at your beautiful place The kids loved the pool, the lake, and the fishing (caught 2!!) and watching the little family of deer that came up each day. The grown-ups loved the swings, the hammock, the views and the peace and quiet, especially coffee in the mornings on the porch and the fact that it is only a short drive to get there. Bill was great - even searching after we left for a lost item (which he found) and making arrangements for me to pick it up! I have already told friends about it - so expect more business!! Thanks for graciously sharing your home! It was exactly what we needed!

Confortable and Nature Views.

This home is so peaceful and relaxing. I enjoyed the mornings by sitting in the back porch watching the natural views. My family enjoyed having bar-b-que and being together. Thank you Bill for everything and making our stay comfortable. We will be staying again soon.

Peace and tranquility

  • 5 of 5
We had a very pleasant stay at this beautiful farm house. From the mornings with coffee on the swing to the beautiful sunsets while eating dinner on the patio/porch, it was relaxation at its best. The master bed was comfortable, the walks to the ponds were enjoyable, and the location was great for short get-aways to Hempstead and Brenham. We highly recommend this vacation rental.

Privacy Lovers: Look no further.....

  • 5 of 5
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!
