Perks for the Parents

A rural farmhouse in Clyde, Texas, with beautiful modern interiors and perfect views of sweeping landscapes from every room. It sleeps 10 + 1. This home is ideal for families that need an escape from busy city life. Spend your days making family memories outdoors, watching the sunsets, stargazing, or simply linger over long meals from the indoor, outdoor or screened-in dining spaces. If you need to work during your stay, you’ll find a private library downstairs with a desk, rolling chair and a large reading chair. Upstairs, a built-in desk is available in the third bedroom should you need a second workspace.

Why Kids Love it

They’ll love the kid-friendly bunk room, which is outfitted with a fun house bed, blackout shades, toys, games and books ideal for children aged 0-5. Children of all ages also love the outdoor space, with the wraparound porch, hammocks and a sprawling back patio making it ideal for exploring outside. Outdoor games like bocce ball and horseshoes are available for older kids and the hosts provide amenities for younger kids such as bath toys, children’s dinnerware, baby sunscreen and infant Tylenol for your convenience.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 2 nights. Safety notes: there are stairs in the home and on the porch. Baby gates are provided for the interior staircase. There is a lot of outdoor space to roam, which is safe for children but there are no fences around the property. There is ample space for car parking outside, car rental is essential. A crib can be provided upon request. The kitchen is stocked with pantry basics and has plenty of appliances to make cooking a breeze. Guests are welcome to browse a collection of books in the library to read during their trip.

About the Location

The farmhouse is in a remote part of West-Central Texas, half an hour outside Abilene. Situated on 18 scenic acres, families enjoy solitude and seclusion: you can walk along dirt roads from the home to see wildlife and farm animals like cows, horses, donkeys, llamas, goats and more. Abilene is a charming city with museums, restaurants and family activities. The location is perfect for family gatherings, visits to Abilene Christian University or Hardin-Simmons University, staycations for anyone in the Abilene area or getting friends together for a weekend in the country. It’s around 3 hours from Dallas/Fort Worth international airport.

Accommodation Details

The house has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, set over 2 floors. On the lower level, you’ll find the well-equipped kitchen, perfect for preparing large meals for the entire group. The sun-drenched breakfast nook is a great place for coffee, but you may prefer the wraparound porch or the screened-in porch facing the backyard, too. The main dining table seats 8, the screened-in porch seats 6, a bar top in the kitchen seats 3 and the breakfast nook seats 4. This floor also boasts the primary bedroom with a kingsize bed and a trundle daybed for families that prefer to stay together in the same room. The large primary bathroom features a claw-foot tub, separate shower, his and hers sinks and a separate toilet room. Upstairs there are 3 well-appointed guest rooms: 2 of which feature queensize beds, large closets, luggage racks, seating and crisp, all-white bedding (plus plenty of extra blankets and pillow). Large windows on the second floor showcase beautiful country views. The third upstairs bedroom has a bunk bed (single-over-double). The upstairs bathroom features a tub/shower combo and plenty of towels and toiletries provided.

Style Notes

Fresh and elegant. The house is furnished for modern design lovers, with a nod to the history of the area. The hosts have combined antique elements with modern furniture and fixtures, and a hint of med-century styling, so you can have the best of both worlds. Floor-to-ceiling windows throughout the home put the beautiful scenery front and center - the sweeping country views are the showcase of this home. The open floor plan in the living areas also adds to the feeling of space, allowing guests to easily enjoy meals together while spreading out, so everyone can find their own spot to relax. We love the botanical print wallpaper in the living room which mirrors the rural surroundings, the elegant stained glass doors leading off from the hallway and the striking contemporary 4-poster black bed frame.
