Maetze House

This house was built in Goliad in 1877 and was moved to the ranch and restored in 2005. It features 12' ceilings, longleaf pine walls, working fireplaces and wonderful front porch with rocking chairs overlooking grassland prairies and south Texas brush lines loaded with birds.

Francisca Alavez Suite features double bed plus twin, large shower in private bath.

General Ignacio Zaragoza Suite features two twin beds plus bathtub/shower in private bath.

Rock on the large porch catching the SE breezes and be amused by miniature donkeys grazing and playing in the pastures while reflecting on the rising or setting sun and moon. Read, play games, dine - or just commune by the fireplace in the comfortable living room under the light of our 18th century chandelier. Group or family time could not be better with our modern kitchen and comfortable living room. The kitchen is stocked with coffees, teas, spices, cookware and utensils, dishes and napkins. The main house has 3 bedrooms that sleep 2-4 people each. The "Hummingbird House" is a small efficiency apartment in a separate building. Each of the bedrooms and the Hummingbird House has a private bath. You may rent the whole premises or any room separately.

Romance in the privacy of the large Jane Long suite while bathing in the double bathtub under the reflective prism lights of a Waterford chandelier and cozy up to the private in-suite fireplace - or have your family reunion or a group of friends here. Unwind under the stars by the firepit at night, cool off in the country cold tub by day. We have a horseshoe pit, hammocks and swings for lazy days.
