Why Buz Dillon chose Texas

This is a family property where we went almost every weekend and summers when I was growing up. We are out of state most of the time now and do not get to visit is as often as we would like so we are opening it up to others to enjoy our serene getaway property.

What makes this farmhouse unique

The property is secluded and offering peace and privacy. It allows you to unwind and forget about the stress and worries of the outside world. Comfy 2+ person quilted hammock.

Several friends and I came to th Round RopmAntiques Fair and stayed here. It was perfect for us. We enjoyed relaxing on the porch in the swings and in the hammock. The whole house was very well suited for our needs: ample sized rooms,, plenty of bathrooms, all the conveniences of home! It was a little cool to swim, but the pool looked inviting. All in all, a very enjoyable stay!

Great Spring Break Trip!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time at the Farmhouse. Our 5 kids (ages 7 to 18) fished, explored, played bumper pool, stargazed, and just overall had a blast. The house is in great condition with plenty of room and nice beds. The grounds are outstanding from the beautiful yard around the house, to the patches of wildflowers in the surrounding fields (bluebonnets!) and picturesque, well maintained ponds. We were fortunate to have some fantastic weather as well! Hempstead is a short (10 minute) drive away with restaurants and groceries. The owner and the caretaker are very responsive to questions and great to work with. With a large family we've used VRBO for years to find places to stay for our vacations - this place is one of the best we've ever stayed at. Highly recommend! Thank you Buz and Bill!

The reviews are 5 star for a reason.

  • 5 of 5

We spent our Christmas week here this year with our 3 children. The pictures really do not do this house or land justice at all. I was so happily surprised by how large the house is. It's a very large house and has been well kept and cared for even though it is an older home. All of the appliances are 70's but all work great and it's really nice to see a house in tact of that time period. It reminded me of my grandmas house and I really enjoyed that. We saw deer almost everyday and my family had a great time fishing in the ponds that are located right on the property. The pool was gorgeous even though it was too cold for us to use it. The property is quiet and serene. We could have lived on the back patio. Bill, the care taker was very helpful and made sure that we had everything we needed.

Amazing Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful time at the farmhouse. The pictures do not do this place justice. It is so serene and peaceful, it was the perfect place to spend Thanksgiving as a family. We cooked, we fished, we played games in the yard, and simply relaxed. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us. It was the perfect getaway!

What a wonderful time the seven of us had at The Farm! Spacious, spotlessly clean, fabulous trees all around, and a great covered patio to relax on.

Unbelievably wonderful.

  • 5 of 5

We spent such a relaxing, peaceful weekend at the farm. It is hard to believe that it is so close to Houston (and 290) yet it feels like you are miles and miles from the real world. Everyone had such a great time . . . even swimming in the rain. The cows and deer were fun to watch while they watched us back. The house had more than enough room for all of us to have our own space. Both the owner (Buz) and caretaker (Bill) were so easy to work with and so helpful. The pictures and descriptions are right on the money and it's still even better. The farm is a bit of heaven on earth, and we can't wait to go back.
