    Great stay for my daughter and me! Convenient to Round Top, oh so peaceful, a friendly goose and deer in the clearing!

    The Rocking Horse Retreat is outside of Carmine in a beautiful setting. I enjoyed the quiet and the green rolling grass and all the wildflowers. Rented this to attend Round Top Antique week. A good location. About 15 minutes easy drive to Round Top. The only problem is windows do not open and the wall air conditioner is above one bed --- did not need a/c --- but, could not have slept with this over me. Thunder storm early one morning work me -- but, what was scary was the wooden window blinds rattling like crazy in the wind. I thought the window was going to blow out. The property manager is very responsive to questions and requests.

  • Nice quite location. Henry the goose escorted us to our parking space upon arrival


    Hostess was very responsive to our questions and was very quick to replace the broken toilet handle.

  • Great country getaway


    Spent couple of days there with family (2 adults and 2 small kids). Outside is great, with cows and friendly goose nearby. Short walk to the pond. Stayed in Arizona room, it shares the wall with Texas room, and missing a kitchen (it has microwave and mini fridge). There is a great charcoal grill outside. The side road to the property is gravel, but it’s only 2 miles.We mostly enjoyed the quiet hood, visited Somerville state park and a couple of small towns nearby.
