About Nancy Heard

The property is owned and operated by Dean and Nancy Heard who lived and worked in the Houston area for years before permanently relocating to a slower pace of life in Washington Texas.

Why Nancy Heard chose Brenham

The property has been in Nancy's family for over 100 years. The farmhouse was her Great Grandmother's House but was restored by the couple and was their weekend getaway from life in the city. They now want to share that getaway with others wanting an escape from the city.

What makes this farmhouse unique

The property is not only centrally located between Houston and Austin but centrally located between College Station and Brenham, simply a great location!

Mornings and evening are the best! Listening to the birds, cows, horses and roosters, watching the deer and feeling the breeze. Enjoying the beautiful sunsets and wonderful sunrises! Laying on the hammock at night watching the stars!

We had a wonderful time at the house. There were eight adults and we had plenty of room. The Bluebonnets were beautiful and the horses next door were great to watch. It was very peaceful too!!

Respite from the city!

  • 5 of 5

What a charming old farmhouse...very well accommodated and welcoming...beginning upon our arrival! We were greeted with a plate of delicious home baked brownies and a bottle of wine with cheese and crackers. Royer's Cafe in Round Top was delicious for Friday dinner, and we enjoyed something off the grill for dinner the next evening, however, we didn't take advantage of the nice fire pit and glorious starry night, as we were too exhausted from a day of Round Top antiquing. Besides, we were all so excited to start talking about the upcoming wedding! We were there with our daughter, her boyfriend and his parents and he had just "popped the question" earlier that evening amongst the

bluebonnets, as the farm horses listened in! After a leisure Sunday morning...Keurig and K-cups provided for us!...we packed up and headed over to Washington on the Brazos state park for an enjoyable tour, followed by lunch at R's Place, just outside the park and recommended by Dean and Nancy (P.S. Thank you for all the restaurant recommendations and map!). That was a most enjoyable and memorable getaway from the Houston and DFW areas!!

Wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

We were in Washington for my brothers wedding and really enjoyed our stay here! The owners were so helpful. They escorted us to the house at 10:30 at night after we got lost. We were greeted with wonderful brownies, cheese, crackers, and wine! The house is extremely clean and well decorated. It was wonderful being here with our 4 kids instead of a hotel; there was so much room for them to do. They got to feed the fish and horses outside and there were crayons, books, stencils, and board games inside! Can't say enough good things about it!

Washington County Charm

  • 5 of 5

Just a perfect setting in the countryside of Washington County only about a mile from Washington on the Brazos State Park. Just about every amenity you could think of to occupy the grandchildren. If you are looking for a relaxing get-away from the hustle bustle of any big cities look no further. We recommend, and will be back.
