Our San Marcos mini-farm is a special place, a lovingly hand-built enclave of homes, agricultural space, fields and flowers. We’re now sharing our “big house,” a roomy two-bedroom, two-bath farmhouse that features a great front porch.

The space
When you drive through the gate, you’ll discover a magical place, a compound of family and friends who share a love of small-yield farming and the peace and quiet of the country life.
There is lots of room for outdoor activities.
We may approve small social gatherings with advance notice, but if you're looking for a place for a noisy late-night party, this is not for you.
For a peaceful evening, build a fire in your fire pit (we provide the wood) and enjoy the stars.
Want more? We’re just seven miles from downtown San Marcos with its college-fired entertainment options. That includes great trekking and tubing opportunities.
We’re also just a hop, skip and a jump from New Braunfels and historic, charming Gruene.
Those seeking the big city lights can be in Austin or San Antonio in 45 minutes

Where you’ll be

San Marcos, Texas, United States

We’re found in farm country, but there’s still lots to do.
We’re just one mile from the Flying Armadillo Disc Golf Course.
We love the Five Mile Dam, a fabulous spot for river swimming, fishing and picnicking.
The Lime Kiln Trailhead is 6.5 miles away; it leads to the beautiful 250-acre Spring Lake Natural Area.
Or jump into the San Marcos River with an inner tube or kayak!
Or check out the opportunities for dining and drinking. San Marcos is home to fine restaurants and a half dozen craft breweries.
Beyond that brief (and admittedly woefully inadequate) list there are dozens more recreational opportunities. Let’s talk.

Now semi-retired (except for managing our two airbnb houses and writing books and articles), which allows Linda and me to spoil our grandson and travel the world. We stay almost exclusively in airbnb accommodations because hotels are depressingly similar the world over. And they're expensive. Both of those aspects reduce your ability to get to know the local folks and the culture -- and for us, that's what traveling is all about!

How much interaction we have with you on-site is largely up to you. We’re pretty social folks, but we also understand the pleasure of just getting away for a bit.
