THE RED BRICK. . . A country retreat close to town

Bedrooms 2
Property type farmhouse
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

We’re in the country close to town with easy access - the best of both worlds. Located just seven minutes from downtown Stephenville, Texas, home of Tarleton State University, The Red Brick has all the amenities you will need to enjoy the beautiful Texas landscape, fresh air, and fantastic sunsets. We’re less than one minute from Tarleton’s Agricultural Center where you can see horses at home on the range and happy cows.

Sit on the deck, listen to the birds, or take a walk on a country dirt road. Visit the pond and skip rocks. Sit on the dock and contemplate nature. Gather some wild flowers.

It’s all here in the quiet, tranquil setting of the country close to town. In town for a special event or just tired of the city’s chaos? The Red Brick is way more comfortable than a hotel room. Come to a place where you have free wi-fi, a full kitchen, two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a sun porch, washer and dryer, a study, color TV, and one of the best small ponds in all of Texas. Take a breath and just relax.

Call The Red Brick home for a week or a weekend. And know that you’ve found happiness.

THE RED BRICK. . . A country retreat close to town
average rating of 4.6 based on 5 reviews

Very rustic and charming.

  • 4 of 5

Marilyn and Charlie are the best hosts.

The Red Brick is a charming house on beautiful property. The outdoor space is amazing. Wonderful sunsets while sitting in the hot tub. Wonderful sunrise in the morning sitting in the porch swing drinking tea.

We would definitely stay again.

Wonderful Country Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Red Brick for Christmas! It was a wonderful experience. The house has everything you need to cook and the beds are very comfortable. Marilyn and Charlie are extremely nice and willing to accommodate anything you need. The house is quiet and in the country but you are only minutes from town! Thank you for the great experience!

Beautiful, peaceful country setting close to Tarleton University

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our weekend at the Red Brick house. Attended Texan Days for hopeful Tarleton Texan in 2018. House is very convenient to campus and town, on a beautiful setting. We were able to relax after busy day of touring campus, save on meals as we cooked there, and enjoy a getaway weekend as a family. Thank you for offering this beautiful retreat.

Homey, elegant country get-away

  • 5 of 5

The Red Brick was very comfortable; I had a relaxing three night stay. The home is beautifully decorated and everything- kitchen, baths, television, internet worked without a hitch. The owner is wonderful host; left a bottle of wine for me. It was great to get away from the city and be surrounded by the country, but be just minutes to downtown Stephenville.

Country Serenity

  • 4 of 5

The property is on a country road surrounded by wide open spaces. The home is quaint and comfortable. There is plenty of access to the outdoors via doors located in every room. The weekend we stayed, it rained the entire time so we were unable to spend much time outside, but there are lots of tables and chairs on the decks and in the yard to sit in and enjoy the peace and quiet. We opened the doors and listened to the much-needed rain. There were five adults and two toddlers, and there was plenty of room for everyone. The home is clean, well equipped, and we enjoyed our stay. The property owner was very attentive and easy to contact.
