Space 1,722 sq. ft.
Property type farmhouse
Minimum Stay 2 - 4 nights


About the property

Farmhouse, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 11-13)

We have owned this little slice of heaven since 2000 and have used it for many different purposes. You will love it, too, as a weekend retreat for you, your family and your friends. Don ‘t forget church groups, bunko groups, cycling teams, PTA groups, college reunions, craft groups …we’ve had them all! Have your Aggies and your Longhorns meet you in the middle – might be the only common ground they have.

It’s a great home base for the Round Top Antiques Fair in April and October, training rides for the MS 150, as well as the Saturday night during the MS150 itself. There is year-round antiquing in the surrounding towns.

The four bedrooms feature King/Twin, Queen/Twin, three twins, and two twins. The King and Queen rooms have private baths, while the upstairs twin rooms share a bath. The whole house offers charm in its original wooden and beadboard walls, long-leaf pine floors, and old wavy glass windows. But the modern amenities are what you’d expect at a premium vacation home – central air and heat, stainless steel appliances, gas cook-top, upgraded bedding and pillows, satellite TV, DVD player, outdoor kitchen with granite counters and stainless grill and griddle. The professional décor is quaint, with antiques mixed with modern comforts. Inside dining offers seating for 12 at two tables, plus outside dining at the huge farm table in the outdoor kitchen.

The best part might be the wraparound porch with ten rocking chairs, 1950s glider, and wicker club chairs. Or the six Adirondacks on the patio beside the outdoor kitchen.

Lots of room to work on projects or just sit and soak up the central Texas views. We know you'll love it as much as we do!

Guestbook comments from the manager

What a beautiful, serene ranch you have. All 8 of us have made lasting memories - lounging by the fire pit, cooling off in the pool, and enjoying the solitude. Much laughter was had, and we all wish we didn't have to leave! Thank you for opening your beautiful home to us.

Our stay was short but found it easy to sit back and relax.

The porch and the view was priceless.

Peaceful and rejuvenating

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our grown children enjoyed the pool, the fishing, and mostly the porches! Coffee-time, iced tea-time, and wine time! The property was very clean and well-taken care of. It's clear that a lot of love has gone into this home.

Great place for a girls getaway.

A group of girlfriends who live all over Texas gathered here for 4 nights to just get away. The porch is perfect for coffee & friends. The beds were comfortable. The wi-fi is good. We would definitely stay here again.

We had 3 generations together in this fabulous setting and everyone had a blast. This is just beautiful and the amenities were all exactly as described by the owner. We found out that we're not too good at catfish fishing but we had a lot of catch and release bass by our 12 year old grandsons. Everyone from 8 months to 66 years old found just what they needed to enjoy all 4 days we were there.

We loved the house and it was an easy drive to Roundtop for the antique fair. The only complaint I would have is that the out door grill was dirty so we chose to cook our steaks inside. It would have been nice to cook them on the grill.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback, Laura! Cleaning the grill is part of the caretakers' weekly task, so I'm distressed to find that it was dirty. We will let them know and hope to improve on that asap.

Everything about the house is great. The pictures really don't do this place justice. We spent a long weekend with mothers and kids and loved every second. The pool is perfectly placed so guests that want to be around the pool but not in the sun have shade from the oak trees. My kids ran around with no shoes on the entire time. The two bedrooms down stairs are large and there are plenty of linens and pillows. Truly is a perfect place to unplug and unwind. We'll be back next year.
