About owner/property manager

I have lived in the Houston area for the past 24 years and ranched in Texas since 1997. This property is a joy to live in and own.

owner/property manager purchased this chateau / country house in 2007

Why owner/property manager chose Brenham

We fell in love with this property the moment we walked on the grounds. The home was built in the late 1800's and moved to its present location over 40 years ago. I restored the home by essentially taking it down to its framing 2 x 6's and brought back the home to beyond its prior glory.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

The home has charm, warmth, space, every comfort imaginable in a peaceful and quiet environment removed from all of the hustle and bustle that life brings upon us all.

Beautiful Ranch

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Muddy Bluff ranch with my kids and grandkids. We all enjoyed the beautiful accomodations but also the wonderful breeze that hit the porch swing each morning and evening. We also had fun watching the horse on the other side of the fence lead the cows across the pasture each day.

The ranch house is extremely clean and well cared for. The hardwood floors are beautiful and very warm. The house is quite a distance from the road so that you do not see cars or hear road noise.

Owner's Response: Dear Mike, We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and found Muddy Bluff the retreat which you were seeking. Sincerely, Gary

Amazing Property & Gracious Host!!

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time using Homeaway and I will never stay in a hotel again! The Muddle Bluff Ranch was unbelievable and the photos just don't even do it justice. The pristine historic home has been restored in the most perfect way. Ideal for my family and one other couple (both with small children). We were able to enjoy walking the property during the day and cozying up to a fire at night. It made our trip so memorable. Gary went out of his way to accommodate us and we are so grateful! We enjoyed all the comforts of our own home but the luxury of a fabulous hotel. So enjoyed cooking in this kitchen and waking up and seeing cows and horses grazing right outside our door. It is close enough to town to be convenient, but far enough out to feel like you have really gotten away from it all. We were in town for a wedding and last minute switched our plan to stay here. Best move ever. I can't recommend this property enough.

Owner's Response: Aimee and Dana were lovely guests. We are so glad they enjoyed their time at our ranch. They were the first couple ever to rent our property. We were originally hesitant to even begin to rent our treasured home, however now realize what a lovely honor it is to share this with others as well.
