We had a great time. This place was very nice and we’d go back. Our family had a great time at his place. The home, pool, grounds and landlord were very nice and we’d like to go back.

Great place to get away! Silver Spur was an excellent place to get away from it all! The house is very clean and comfortable. The grounds surrounding the house are also very well maintained. We had a fantastic weekend at Silver Spur!

The Silverspur at Round Top, Texas Stay in Western Luxury! The perfect property for “besties” to spend the weekend! The property was lovely… well appointed comfortable beds and cozy feel to a spacious living space… kitchen and bathroom well stocked with necessities… felt like we were staying with relatives who were happy to see us!

The perfect Round Top retreat! We were very impressed with the silver spur! We stay at MANY rental homes across the globe and this one was one of my very favorites! Great location, lovely decor, extremely well equipped, just great for our family! We will definitely stay here again! My only hesitation about writing a 5 star review is that I don’t want this gem to be booked up solid the next time I want to stay there!

Family Fun! Having family from out of town lead us to find a wonderful place out of town that was quiet, but fun. It rained almost all weekend, but in between rain showers we swam and walked around the property. The house is big and clean. Plenty of beds, linens, and space to spread out. Loved being away from everything. Hosts very nice – they came to check on pool etc. while we were there Will go back!

David, we had the best stay at the Silver Spur anyone could ask for. The home and the view surrounding it was very welcoming and peaceful. We cooked and ate all our meals in the professional kitchen, and feeding 10 hungry training cyclists is no easy task! The home was more than enough room for all of us and our bikes to hang out and if any one of us needed our own space, we could find it in the comfy living room or outdoor porch. My friends and I will definitely be back soon to enjoy Silver Spur and the Texas Hill Country!” Angela

David, we had an ideal time! The house was just perfect. My father, grandmother, and mother kept talking about how impressed they were with the Silver Spur (and after speaking with you, my father now wants to rent your Breckenridge property:-). We cooked many delicious meals, took long strolls, and enjoyed the firepit. We hope to come back next year. Thanks very much for sharing your lovely property with us! Katie

David, I wanted to write and tell you how much my family enjoyed your beautiful house on Memorial Day weekend. You have a wonderful property and we all left relaxed and connected; we only wish we had reserved more days! I am sure you hear that a lot! We very much appreciated your thoughtful details and amenities throughout the house. It is a very comfortable and welcoming place to stay. Best, Lexi

David, I wanted to let you know that we truly had fun being in your Silver Spur house. I don’t think our “Gang of Ten” will ever want to go anywhere else. Our four grandkids range in age from 12 – 16 and always have something going on. One Dad spent time flying a kite and helping others fly it too. One Dad spent time passing and catching their football. (Our only boy is on a Flag-football team at his school and is “Professional Football” material. He will turn 13 in January.) The Moms did a little shopping and prepared all the meals. We ate at Royer’s for one meal. We grilled hot dogs and made ‘Smores. Joe and I mostly sat in rockers on the front porch watching all the activity. I did manage to prepare the coffee each morning. We read our current books and napped and rested. The pool is the special favorite thing, of course. Morning, Noon, and Night! There was a full moon, so that was fun. We tried to identify various stars. The sky was so pretty. Oh, yes. We enjoyed watching Jackrabbits. I don’t think anyone was ever fast enough to get a picture. If they did, maybe I’ll send you a copy. Thank you so much. We’ll plan to do it again next year. Lynn and Joe

David, we have been going to Round Top for a long time, and we have never stayed in a place as nice as the Silverspur! I can tell you, I don’t think any other place will measure up to Silver Spur. You have done a beautiful job with that house and now we are spoiled rotten! Judy J

David, the farm house is far from a typical “farm house”. The eclectic style and updated amenities made it feel just like home. Everything you could ever wish for was there! Perfect and roomy enough for 2 families. Absolutely loved our stay there! AMAZING!

Seven members of our classics group spent a weekend in the Round Top area attending the Summer Shakespeare productions at Winedale and enjoying the food, shopping, and rolling hills. We stayed at the Silver Spur, sister property to the Bootstrap. This experience was absolutely wonderful. The house was large and the amenities were luxurious. The owners and housekeeper went out of their way to provide a memorable experience, with extra touches throughout the house. We brought our bathing suits, not really knowing what to expect with the pool, but it was delightful. We took a walk along the country roads each morning, then jumped into the beautiful pool to cool off. There are large porches front and back, and the living room couches were great for sitting and discussing our experiences of the day. All of us were “wowed” by the experience.

David, it is always a pleasure to get somewhere and have the reality exceed the expectations created by internet photos.  That was certainly the case at Silver Spur.  The property was immaculate, well-maintained and loaded with little unexpected extras that made it feel more like a luxury hotel than a vacation home rental.  The home has been exquisitely renovated from the bottom to the top, and all 5 of our teenagers were as happy as we were.  The pool is a super extra.  We needed a couple of days to just relax, and this was the perfect place.  This would also be a great retreat place for a book club or similar group.  The kitchen is well-stocked and as long as you arrive with groceries, there is no need to leave!  Restaurants are NOT plentiful here but the Stone Cellar in town was fine for a quick lunch or dinner.

David, We had a great time in your fabulous guest house!  You have it so well supplied for company that we felt right at home.  We loved the pool and watching the animals around it.  We also enjoyed Round Top and the area, in general.  Kudos too on the cleanliness of the house.  You obviously have a great housekeeper. Thanks for everything! Beth

David, we had a great time.  Thanks so much for sharing your home with us.  It was the perfect getaway for the 4th of July weekend.  The home is so beautifully restored.  It has all the charm of the past and all the modern day comforts combined.  We are starting to renovate an old country home that belonged to my husband’s grandparents and your home was a wealth of inspiration and good ideas.  The kids loved the pool.  We could hardly get them out of it the whole time we were there. Of course, they came home convinced that our country home renovations also need to include a backyard pool! Thanks again for letting us enjoy your home! Susan

David, we had a blast.  We loved your house and enjoyed relaxing in the pool.  Your horses, longhorn and cows were so beautiful.  One of your cows seemed captivated with my daughter as she ran in the yard.  He couldn’t take his eyes off her – in a sweet way.  When she fell and began to cry all the animals came closer. Everything we needed was at our fingertips.  I will surely pass the word around on your wonderful home.  I can’t wait until we can afford to come back again!

David, we enjoyed our stay at your lovely guest home so much!  Absolutely no convenience has been overlooked.  We BBQ’d, swam, enjoyed watching the big bull and the horses, loved the trees, birds and yard, appreciated the craftsmanship of the restoration of the house, and found every comfort inside and out.  Just a spectacular place.  My family begged us to take them back for Christmas!!  We’re not ready to make that commitment yet, but that’s how much fun we all had.  Thank you so much for your attention to all the details.  A perfect holiday for us. Sue

David, the Silver Spur was absolutely wonderful!! I talked to Laura on the way out of town on Thursday just to tell you both thank you and let you know how great we all thought it was. We can’t say enough nice things about it! You both have done a wonderful job in making your guests feel right at home.

David, That is one gorgeous property!  We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will look to come again.  Thanks, Shannon
