The Family Cottage is a school modular moved to the farm and turned into a big open apartment. It first housed Sustainable Farming interns from around the world and now it has been modified to give your family an opportunity to be on our farm. 1 king, 2 twin beds, 2 twin roll away beds with regular mattress and an option to add several more twin or full blow up mattress'. There is a fully operational kitchen with a full size stove/oven, a refrigerator/freezer, and a sink. Next door there is another large cottage if you have more friends or tell them to bring a tent and pitch it in the grove of trees or by the pond, both are close by. The farm is 170 acres, the neighbors across from the cottage have an exotic game ranch. There is wildlife every where, and quiet. Cell phones sometimes don't work out here, it is dark, very wonderfully dark, there is no microwave and you will wash your dishes by hand. But you can bring your mountain bike and ride the farm or the miles of surrounding dirt roads. Bring your fishing gear and fish. Bring your canoe or kayak and put in at the Brazos River 5 miles down the road. Or if you prefer a cafe and antique shopping - go to Calvert just 12 miles down the road. Bring your horses for an extra fee and ride. Self tour our commercial aquaponics or pay $75/hour for a private tour. You might see deer, bobcat, skunk, squirrel, opossum, armadillo, coyote, fox and more. You may or may not see us. Enjoy this farm, treat it well, and come again. Sand Creek Farm is for sale if you fall in love and want a little slice of Texas to call your own.

If roughing it isn't really your speed, the Family Cottage is the place for you. This cozy little farm house sleeps four and has all the amenities you need for an off the grid weekend retreat.
