This was my husband and I's first choice when deciding on a venue for our wedding. We both have a love for architecture and design and this contemporary home with the outdoor space in the hill country was the perfect setting for what we envisioned. We both love the outdoors and that is where we spend much of our time, so it made sense to get married outside at sunset with an outdoor party following. I will admit that I was concerned about the distance from Austin, because a majority of our guests were coming from not only out of town, but out of state, plus we wanted people to enjoy themselves and not have to worry about drinking and driving. Therefore we chartered buses, and as far as we heard they worked out flawlessly. This was my biggest concern, but all the feedback was positive. Many of our friends and family had funny stories from their bus trips that made the entire experience more memorable. The owners were wonderful to work with, very accommodating to any special requests we made and they were a pleasure to work with. The property was in perfect condition and it was seamless for our rental company, catering company and band to load in and out. Our guests all raved about the location and will not soon forget the event. It is such a unique venue that your event will definitely be memorable. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone for not only events but a fun getaway. It made our wedding so special and unique and we would not change a thing. We look forward to using this venue again and again for romantic getaways to our future anniversary parties. The owners were excellent to work with and the venue was a spectacular locale.

We just spent New Year's Eve at The Plant and it was wonderful. The building is absolutely stunning and the architecture served as an inspiring backdrop to our entire weekend. We traveled with two families and five children. The kids were so stimulated by the space, they drifted off into a three-hour free play involving a "boat" (made from old tin wash tubs) on the screened-in porch and a "hotel" (made from pillows) on the balcony and swing. They all loved the fire pits and the indoor fireplace. The highlight of our time was a nature walk with property managers Martha and Jamie. Jamie showed the kids fossils all along the roads right outside The Plant and the kids visited a dry creek bed to identify rocks and explore. Jamie and Martha offer this walk as well as a stargazing tour for a very reasonable additional cost. It was a fabulous holiday and we will definitely do it again. One word of warning: there was a toddler in our group (15 months old) and she required constant supervision on the porch because of the open staircase and near the pool. But the supervision was well worth the extraordinary architecture!
Mark........great property.........had very nice time. Interesting how a Lake/Flato designed facility matches many of their projects we've been involved in over the years. And your neighbor Jaime was very informative while taking us on a nature walk. Thanks for sharing.
Hope to return in the near future.
We found The Plant based on a friend's recommendation as a possible wedding venue. We could not have been happier with how it turned out. Because the property is also a home, we were able to rent it for the entire weekend so that we could relax with friends and family before, during, and after the wedding. This meant that we didn't have to rush to load/unload for the event (which was SO relaxing).
The owners and the property managers were all absolutely wonderful to work with. They were prompt, friendly, and professional. We didn't have any trouble with our guests and vendors finding the location (they provided excellent diretions), but we did put up some temporary road signs to help friends find their way.
The space itself is striking. I would recommend the property for anyone who is looking for an architecturally beautiful place to stay or hold an event.
We traveled to Austin for a family vacation and to see the F-1 races. This place was perfect for all our needs. We fit three generations nicely into the 3 rooms and with the screened area there was plenty of public vs private space for all. Owner provided several books by the architects, which were great to look through. Responses to questions were always returned promptly. Caretakers that live next door are very pleasant and helpful.
Located between the charming Hill Country towns of Kyle and Wimberley, The Plant at Kyle is 30 miles from downtown Austin, easily accessible by either I-35 or Mopac.
