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.

Some say tiny Tarpley is easy to miss; those folks just don't know what they're missing! The Hill Country surrounds Tarpley, offering some of the most beautiful views in Texas. Check out Mac and Ernie's Roadside Eatery, which has been featured on two shows on the Food Network for their cuisine.

Had a fantastic time at Majestic Oaks! The owners are super nice and hospitable. We loved the ranch vibes, and seeing all the animals. There’s a private pool and the owners make you breakfast in the morning. Not much more you could want.

The owner's were very nice, and we loved our stay. Staying in the cabin was a great experience. Their pool area is very relaxing, and the owner made us breakfast both of the mornings we were there. If you get up in the morning, you can see them feed the horses and pet them. Their dog Molly was super sweet!

We really enjoyed our stay and will return one day! The Old House has a wonderful front porch that we used every morning to watch the sunrise, do some bird watching, and drink coffee. The house also has a screened-in porch that we really appreciated while watching a good ole' Texas thunderstorm roll in. The view of the Hill Country is spectacular, and Susie makes an awesome breakfast. Factor in miniature horses, cows, and Molly the Lab, proximity to several parks, and you just can't go wrong

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! :)

We connected very well with Susie and Henry (and their pets, Molly and Sophie!) and had such a fun time on the farm. The miniature horses are so friendly, and the whole place is so relaxing. We loved our weekend in Tarpley!

The Majestic Oaks Farm is a peaceful place that allows you to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life, as well as, reconnect with your significant other or nature. It allows you to focus on the simplicity of life and relax. What else is a plus? The miniature horses each have their own personalities; our hosts Henry and Susie were great; the light breakfast was delicious; the pool was refreshing; and the Red Cottage was clean and inviting! We plan to return in the fall!
