Why Buz Dillon chose Hempstead

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.

Big house with lots of bathrooms and lots of land

  • 5 of 5

This house was awesome. There were no shortage of bathrooms at all for the entire stay which is sometimes a problem at certain houses. The piece of land that the house sits on is huge and is great for walking around and you can even go fishing. The caretaker was a very nice guy and was flexible with some of the house rules once we discussed in person.

Perfect getaway for our three couples.

  • 5 of 5

If you want peace, quiet and solitude, this is the place. The farm house has everything we needed. Yet, any convenience you might want is only minutes away. The grounds and the two lakes are beautiful and well maintained. Bill is always available to help with anything you need.

Great Property for Nature Lovers

  • 4 of 5

Nice place, especially for those looking for some time away in the country. Clean inside and out, including pool...although too cold for a swim on our weekend there. Great, large wooded property. By no means a big negative, but might consider reducing some of the large family artifacts.

wedding house

  • 5 of 5

what a wonderful experience!- the house was used for a very small wedding- there was plenty of space and beds for everyone- the outside area was perfect for pictures under the trees and by the lake- we had everything we needed and Bill and Buzz were so helpful in our preparations-

we all talked about renting this property next year for an annual family visit- the kids loved the swing and hammock- great place for anyone to come and relax!

This is a Beautiful House and Property! It's like going to the Caribbean-You have to see it to Believe IT!! We wished we had more time to stay and relax there! Everything is in great condition! The views from the LARGE Picture windows and doors are incredible! We are going to make a plan to come back in the spring when we can swim too!

Wonderful Ladies Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time and throughly enjoyed our stay. The house and surrounding area were beautiful. My only issues was lack of lighting on Pope Rd. at 290. We came in after dark from the Brenham direction and you cannot see the tun off to Pope Rd. at all.
