Yerba at Bastrop

Bastrop 3 Bedroom(s) 3 Bathroom(s) Sleeps 7

Nestled in the quiet, historic district of Bastrop, Texas, only thirty miles from Austin, we welcome you to stay at “Yerba at Bastrop:” a beautiful, pre-civil war, two-story historic home listed in the National Register of Historic Places and a designated Texas Historic Landmark. Surrounded by lovely organic gardens, the house boasts natural wooden floors throughout and large airy windows in each room, overlooking the plants and trees below. Only a 5-7 minute walk away, the town center awaits you - a vivacious scene of antique stores, live music, restaurants, and a vinery—as do the walking trails, fishing, and other water sports of the splendid Colorado River. Bastrop State Park is just over two miles away and known for its Lost Pines forest, hiking, biking, and outdoor swimming.

With a fireplace on both floors, the upstairs has three inviting, serene bedrooms and two recently updated baths (one with a clawfoot tub and a view of treetops and sky and the other with a waterfall shower). You can enjoy your coffee and breakfast in the morning or drinks and hors d'oeuvres in the evening on the breezy, upstairs (and screened-in!) sitting porch with views of the sky, birds and the garden’s enormous bay trees. Downstairs, the dining room, living room and parlor are welcoming communal spaces, while the kitchen is a chef’s dream with cast iron pots and cooking ware collected over the years by Catine Perkins, a noted organic gardener, cook and artist. Coffee and tea are ready to be made, and if you wish to cook, you can check out the chicken coop in the back for eggs, pick out fresh herbs in the garden, and use whatever condiments are available in the kitchen. There are plentiful places to shop for groceries nearby.

This beautiful and spacious home is one of the oldest in Bastrop and was purchased by Robert and Catine Perkins in 1959. Catine was a strong proponent of historical preservation, organic gardening and preventive medicine. People would come from miles around to see her yard filled with irises, day lilies, poppies, antique roses, and culinary herbs. An extraordinary cook, she held herb classes for the young staff at Whole Foods when it first opened In Austin, as well as supplying herbs to some of the top local Austin restaurants at the time. The Perkins family is upholding their parents’ tradition and believes the peaceful charm and unique healing attributes of the property will give you a one-of-a-kind, fulfilling stay in this striking part of Texas

Absolute Perfection

Reviewed on 2021-01-04 by Joey via Airbnb
This breathtaking home was absolute perfection. I don\'t feel I can say enough good things but let me try...my expectations were VERY high before even arriving as I love older historic homes and this stay exceeded my expectations in every way! The home was so clearly decorated and formed with love and deep personal touches and history that resonated with me at every turn. Every room tells a story and offers a perfect mixture of indulgence, charm, and personalization. I feel I, myself, couldn\'t have dreamt up a more perfect home. The house is super clean. Very immaculate. The property managers respond extremely fast and are very hospitable. The amenities are plenty (coffee, tea, etc) and the wifi is great. The location is amazing. I can\'t wait to stay here again! Thanks for making my lil get away so good.
