Charming farmhouse cottage in a stunning setting!

  • 5 of 5

We were 4 ladies on a Round Top antiques week adventure. The property was perfect for us! We took in every little detail of the adorable cottage! Vintage decor was everywhere! We loved it! Bonnie was sweet and brought us a blender and ice for our drinks. Only thing needed was a little more light in the kitchen and a big mirror in the bedroom so we could spread out to get ready. We arrived at dark and in the morning were delighted to find that we were in the middle of a perfectly landscaped peaceful pond/refuge. So beautiful. My only regret is that we were so busy shopping that we didn't have more time to walk the property and sit on the front porch!

Wonderful 'escape' from city and modern life

  • 5 of 5

We spent majority of our time relaxing rocking in the chairs on the porch overlooking the gorgeous property. A lot of effort has gone into making the picturesque property enjoyable from the art pieces to nice trails to the landscaping. My favorite was the rod iron light fixtures illuminating the path to the house. The goal of this getaway was a relaxing escape from dealing with our recently flooded house and cars from Hurricane Harvey. It met our demands! I do wish the kitchen was functional but very fitting to the times and we made do with microwaved eggs and precooked bacon breakfast tacos each morning. Inside was very 'period' as people have described but loved looking around and admiring the 1840s house and dated 'everything' inside.

Renovated Farm House Stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house was very "period" which added to it's allure. Thankfully it was air conditioned which really made it paradoxical considering how old the place was. We also viewed another property that Bonnie had. Next time we will give that one a try as well. We celebrated our 10th Wedding Anniversary and my wife was very pleased with the setting. I highly recommend staying here and most certainly will again. Thanks for a wonderful stay!

Lovely and very scenic

  • 5 of 5

This farmhouse was a great place to stay. It's very comfortable and set in a well-maintained pastoral setting. There were several nice touches, a bottle of wine when we arrived, a well-appointed bathroom, and coffee ready to make along with a pint of half-n-half in the fridge. All in all, our stay was perfect.

Beautiful country retreat

We enjoyed sitting on the front porch drinking coffee and strolling around downtown LaGrange looking at all the treasures.

Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

The stay there was wonderful. The grounds were. Beautiful and the farm house was just adorable. It was exactly what I was wanting for a stay for my mom and I. I think it would have been a little inconvenient getting ready in the mornings if there would have been more ladies, just because of lack of lighting/mirrors, and plugs, but the whole decor fit the time period of the house. This is definitely not a complaint, just a heads up for someone searching for a place. My mother and I could not have been more pleased with house. Bonnie done an amazing job restoring the farm house and you can tell she takes pride in her work because of the little details she paid attention to. She is also a very gracious host and made us feel very welcome. We would definitely stay there again or at any of her other properties.
