About the property

Our Round Top Texas country guest house which is located in the heart of the golden Triangle of Houston, Austin and San Antonio, is a charming yet sophisticated retreat known as The Silver Spur at Round Top. The restored 1800’s traditional Texas Farmhouse is nestled amongst gorgeous 100+ year old live Oaks and Pecan trees. There are spectacular views with some pitch and roll offering the true beauty of this impressive countryside. Have fun watching the Longhorns graze, deer feeding at dawn and all the wonderful bird species that come our way. Located on a secluded country road, 5 miles from Round Top, Texas town square, where you can enjoy unique shopping, antiques and first class dining that you would expect to find in the city. You will also be within 5 miles of Festival Hill Symphony Hall and also the Winedale Shakespearian Festival Center.

Enjoy the beauty of a clear Texas night before bed and a fresh cup of coffee or tea on one of the two large porches, complete with rockers.

activites: The tiny town of Round Top (population 77) with its charming town square surrounded by antique stores and restaurants, is set in pastoral countryside, just off Route 290. Only one and a half hours’ drive from Austin and Houston, and two hours’ drive from San Antonio and Waco.

Chartered in 1870, Round Top is located on Cummins Creek in northern Fayette County. The town is said to have received its name from 'the house with the round top', an early stagecoach mileage designation that, at the time, was located about a mile northeast of the town's present site.

The first settlers were prosperous Anglo-American plantation owners who came here as early as 1826 and were active in political an d military affairs. By the late 1840s, German immigrants settled here, leaving their indelible cultural imprint on the region's landscape.

The original 1880s courthouse in Round Top burned in 1924 and was rebuilt at the present location on the town square.

Notes:
This early 1800’s fully restored farmhouse sits on 50 acres of rolling meadow with stunning views – only minutes away from Round Top town square, Warrenton and Fayette Lake. Original pine plank flooring, beaded woodwork and restoration glass windows along with the original “barn wood” that was found on the existing property which makes up much of the cabinetry work within the house compliments this early 18th century home while tastefully decorated with a Texas flare.

Great place to get away!

  • 5 of 5

Silver Spur was an excellent place to get away from it all! The house is very clean and comfortable. The grounds surrounding the house are also very well maintained. We had a fantastic weekend at Silver Spur!

The perfect Round Top retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with the silver spur! We stay at MANY rental homes across the globe and this one was one of my very favorites! Great location, lovely decor, extremely well equipped, just great for our family! We will definitely stay here again! My only hesitation about writing a 5 star review is that I don't want this gem to be booked up solid the next time I want to stay there!

Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

Having family from out of town lead us to find a wonderful place out of town that was quiet, but fun. It rained almost all weekend, but in between rain showers we swam and walked around the property.

The house is big and clean. Plenty of beds, linens, and space to spread out. Loved being away from everything.

Hosts very nice-they came to check on pool etc while we were there.

Will go back!

Beautiful farm house with amazing Southern charm, and great views and immaculately maintained

  • 5 of 5

My family with some relatives stayed here to attend a wedding in Round Top, and we were so impressed with how beautifully the house is decorated, and the outdoor settings are so serene with great views from the air-conditioned front porch, which we used frequently. It's only five minutes from downtown Round Top, and a great place for family reunion. The house is quite large with large bathrooms. We loved it so much, that are thinking about going back.

Peaceful Tranquility

  • 5 of 5

It is always a pleasure to get somewhere and have the reality exceed the expectations created by internet photos. That was certainly the case at Silver Spur. The property was immaculate, well-maintained and loaded with little unexpected extras that made it feel more like a luxury hotel than a vacation home rental. The home has been exquisitely renovated from the bottom to the top, and all 5 of our teenagers were as happy as we were. The pool is a super extra. We needed a couple of days to just relax, and this was the perfect place. This would also be a great retreat place for a book club or similar group. THe kitchen is well-stocked and as long as you arrive with groceries, there is no need to leave! Restaurants are NOT plentiful here but the Stone Cellar in town was fine for a quick lunch or dinner.
