You Don’t Need to Leave Austin to Be a World Away from the City

You can have the serene hill country event you’ve dreamed of without driving all the way out to Dripping Springs. We proudly bare our roots in our food, our architecture, everything we do. Here, we are blazing new trails in Texas cuisine, harvesting rare and unexpected heirloom produce from our vibrant gardens. We pay homage to tradition, while leaving the past in our dust.

 

Mansion

Our mansion has stood tall for over 100 years, and the vast history of celebrations that have taken place there gives the space a carefree, timeless energy. It’s the perfect place to share those special moments preparing for your wedding. It is a gorgeous backdrop for cocktail hour or a wedding ceremony, and the perfect place for a sparkler send off.

Ballroom

This is where the magic happens. The second we saw this building, we knew it was perfect for our grounds, so we shipped it piece by piece from New York. Our Ballroom is a mix of old and new, a modern structure with rustic character. It’s a versatile, bright, open space that’s ready to house whatever event you need it to.

Farmstead

Modern design mixed with farmstead chic, our Farmstead is the perfect indoor/outdoor space. For summer events, use our Farmstead as an open air space where your guests can eat food from our farm, dance, and drink the night away. You can enjoy the fresh air without having to worry about rain or the hassle of renting a tent. In the winter, shut the doors, keep out the cold, and create an intimate lounging area. Or ignore our advice and use the space however you want.

Landscape

Our buildings sit on 29,600 square feet of rolling hills and luscious gardens. Our gardens aren’t just for staring at. They’re growing best-in-show tomatoes and forgotten southwest heirloom produce selected by farmer Christian Drake, who’s built farms for the Culinary Institute of America. Here, he’s pioneering with tradition, fostering a foodie renaissance with our 40,000 gallon rainwater collection system. See and taste the Terroir of Texas for yourself.
