Perfect setting for a family gathering

  • 5 of 5

The Plant is a very special place. Stunning in its architectural details, yet so warm and welcoming with a number of cozy gathering spaces. The well appointed kitchen is a cooks dream with room for many helping hands. Our hosts/managers Martha and Jamie were attentive and kind. The environment, so peaceful and laid back, was the perfect setting for a our family's holiday weekend. It's calling us back!

the perfect experience

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I got married at The Plant in early November. The day was truly special, in no small part due to the efforts and help of Marth, Jamie, and Mark. The grounds are well maintained and beautiful - the team has created an oasis in Central Texas. There isn't a single thing about our experience that we would have changed. My wife and I have made great friends with the folks at The Plant and look forward to spending more time with them.

Stunning property

  • 5 of 5

I was part of a group of 9 visitors, and we couldn't believe our luck that we managed to book this place. It's such a one-of-a-kind space, and it was so perfect for a friend reunion. We cooked, we hung out by the pool, and we danced in the open area. Would 100% return for another special occasion.

An amazing place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I enjoyed a long weekend at the Plant to celebrate my birthday / Bachelorette and couldn't have had a better time. Any questions we had were easily answered and the instructions for getting in and out were very thorough and straight forward. The building itself is a stunning piece of architecture and the land surrounding it is lovely. We all sat in the patio chairs drinking coffee and watched the sun come up in the mornings. It was in the hundreds most of our weekend but the pool was cold and the interior spaces were always cool. We had a blast! I would highly reccomend staying here and hope to go back again soon. -Em
