In the foothills of Hill Country, this glamping property is a 650-acre working ranch and bed and breakfast filled with old oak trees, lakes, ponds, and wildlife. The hosts of this property also have horses, Angus cattle, llamas, miniature donkeys, peacocks, American bison, Black Buck antelopes, Fallow deer, and of course, their pet dogs.
The Cat Spring area has historically significant Texan attractions, such as the Stephen F. Austin State University and Washington-on-the-Brazos State Parks. There are many nearby communities that will offer glampers a change of scenery with their cultural sites, dining establishments, and boutique and antique shops, such as Bellville, Sealy, Columbus, New Ulm, Eagle Lake, Richmond, Rosenberg, Round Top, Warrenton, Shelby, Brenham, Chappell Hill, and Winedale.
