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.

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.

RESTFUL & RELAXING

  • 5 of 5

We have been spending our vacations at the farmhouse for the last several years. We will not go anywhere else. If you want peace & quiet this is where you want to be! The property is as described on the website. It is maintained very nicely. Management is available when needed & very helpful. I highly recommend this property.

Peaceful, Quiet, Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was great and everything was provided. This is exactly what we needed for a ladies only weekend, leaving the kids and husbands at home. It was so relaxing, peaceful, and quiet. We loved seeing the deer come by, including two babies that would hang out near the drive way and around the pool while we were swimming. We will definitely be coming back in the future.

The property was just as is listed, even better!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful relaxed family weekend at the Farmhouse! Buz was extremely patient as we tried to finalize our dates with our grown children and accommodated us perfectly! The property was so comfortable and we felt right at home as soon as we arrived. We would recommend this property to anyone, families or groups. The property was beautifully manicured and very well taken care of. We felt like we were right at home. And the pool is very welcoming with its size and convience .

We would love to return here again in the fall and relax once again with our family.

Buz and Bill, thank you for being so friendly and allowing us in your lovely family farmhouse!

Lovely property close to Houston

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at this property. The photos accurately show the house, which is rustic and interesting. The grounds have many more beautiful oak and magnolia trees than you see in the photos, and the pool area is even nicer. It is only 3-5 minute walk from the house to the fishing pond. Please note that a family does rent the small house near the fishing pond (they may or may not be there on a given weekend), so you may not be totally alone. Bill was a great host and kindly lent us his fishing gear. We would definitely stay here again!
