The Farmstead has been a successful bed and breakfast in Round Top, Texas since 1992. First owned and operated by Roland Nester and his sister Mary Nester Stanhope, the property and its historic homes were purchased by our family in 2019. We envisioned creating a space where our guests would be able to truly experience and enjoy the part of Texas that we love and call home.
The homes that sit on the Farmstead property were originally built in 1800's, and sat on several properties across Fayette County. In the early 1990's the Farmhouses were moved to their current locations, receiving their first in a series of rejuvenations. The most recent rejuvenation beginning in the spring of 2019 shortly after our family purchased the property.
Already calling Round Top, Texas home, our family was searching for something we could build and grow together. While looking for that next project, we stumbled upon The Farmstead. At that time, the property was known as Briarfield and our first introduction was as patrons, when we booked several rooms for our family and friends during the holidays. We quickly fell in love with the beauty, history, and peacefulness of the property. Soon after, the bed and breakfast became available and our family realized that this was the opportunity we had all been looking for to share together. After purchasing the Farmstead, we set out to restore the homes to their original beauty while also striving to create an environment in which you can truly relax and enjoy the Texas Hillcountry. We crafted each room for friends and family to visit, which is how we hope you will feel staying with us. We can't wait to hear your story so that we can continue to build the family that is at the heart of The Farmstead.
