Majestic Oaks Farm - Old House

Property Type : Bed And Breakfast | Guest House

Property Description

A stay at Majestic Oaks is an experience unlike the normal destination. A true working farm, this 80 acre paradise in the beautiful Texas Hill Country offers delights for the young and old alike. The 28 miniature horses on the farm are graceful and lovely to see and they enjoy interacting with the guests who are invited to pet them to their hearts' content. The owners of course grow and harvest hay on the land for these beauties and the vegetable gardens adjacent to the Cottage and Old House are truly a wonder to see. After a hike or a stroll around the property, a swim in the pool is a great way to relax. The owner's home, the Cottage and Old House all look out onto the pool which is surrounded by pots of blooming flowers. The Cottage and Old House have all the conveniences of home with fully equipped kitchens, a jar of homemade cookies, satellite TVs with DVD, Wi-Fi internet access, a charcoal grill, lovely bed and bath linens and ample window units for A/C and heat. Treat your family to a stay at this little piece of heaven.

This place was the perfect getaway for a few days of relaxation! Susie and Henry are extremely warm, kind, courteous hosts. They made themselves pretty scarce so we were free to use the pool and walk around, but they also checked in with us and invited us to come see the miniature horses and offered us recommendations on local spots. Just the sweetest couple! Susie also brought us breakfast every day - French toast, quiche, etc. - and they were all SO DELICIOUS! Will definitely try to recreate her recipes, and it was a lovely touch that everything was homemade. The space was very clean and cozy, with a TV and decent wifi for the area (not lightning fast, but we were able to stream movies without an issue), and the bed was very comfortable with fresh sheets. There were also plenty of blankets and clean towels, including pool towels. Make sure to bring your own large bowls and pans if you plan to do major cooking, but Susie made it clear that we were free to ask her for anything we needed. There is also a gas grill outside that was perfect for grilling meat and s'mores, a Keurig coffee machine, and basics (plates, cereal bowls, salt and pepper, silverware, small pots, large spoons, etc.). We loved going to the state parks nearby -- such beautiful scenery. The drives themselves were wonderful, too. We also loved just sitting by the pool (which was also very clean) and relaxing, or on the front porch in the rocking chairs with a book and their sweet dog Molly cuddling at our feet. The miniature horses were also adorable, and Susie invited us out to feed them with her. There were also gardens and fruit trees around the property, which just added to the scenery. The property was so quiet and peaceful - highly recommend for anyone needing a few days of relaxation and calming! And again, couldn't imagine a better host couple! :)
