Looking for a great place to have your bridal or engagement photo taken?

Bring your photographer to the Manor and have your bridal portrait taken on the grounds or in our historic home for the photo of a lifetime.  Peak wildflower season is almost here!  Below are some pictures from early blooms this year and the grounds last year.  The patio is always kept in bloom and the trees make a great setting for your portrait.  

The location fee is only $100--just call or email us to make an appointment.

Lampasas Tour of Homes was great fun!

This past Sunday, the Lampasas County Museum had their annual fundraiser, a tour of homes in and around Lampasas.  We were so happy to be a part of the celebration.  It was fun to meet other people who like seeing old homes and we also learned a lot about some of the previous owners from some long time Lampasas residents.

It was a wonderful day!

Special thanks to our friends Libby Lancaster and Donna Eversdyk for helping to answer questions for guests during the tour.

Fall is almost here...

The rain is really greening things up here at the Manor and we are enjoying it!  It's time for asters, mums, and pretty soon pumpkins.  Here are a few shots of our most recent event, a wedding shower.  We enjoyed a pleasant afternoon on the terrace under the shade of our giant trees and a couple of market umbrellas.

Weekend of weddings...

We had our first weekend with multiple weddings and it was great!  The brides were beautiful, the weather cooperated (yea!), and I continue to be amazed at the creativity of diy brides and their decorating skills.  Below you can see the fruits of their labors.  I will post additional pictures on the Gallery of our main website and on our directory sites as soon as I have the chance to get them sorted.


There was wonderful barbecue at both events and we were treated to the best beans in Burnet County--although the chef would not share his secrets with us, more's the pity.  :(

Congratulations to both of our brides;  we wish you joy.

Wildflowers are here!

 The weekend we have all been waiting for has finally arrived. The salvia and the coreopsis are in their full glory. The blackfoot daisies are still looking good. Take a peek...
