HarBet Lodge, a family-owned farmhouse, is located on a ranch full of outdoor wonders approximately 30 minutes outside of Houston, Texas. It offers a unique guest stay on the farm. HarBet is a perfect destination to share time and make memories, whether for leisure travel or special occasions.

Rich in family tradition, the spacious farmhouse offers a peaceful escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. Rented only as the whole house, your time in Alvin is spent in peace with the ones you love. Accommodating up to 12 guests, your price per night is always the same, whether a romantic getaway for two or a family getaway to create memories and share moments.

Beautifully decorated, this four-bedroom, three-bathroom farmhouse is filled with rustic charm and modern amenities. Sit with your family around the outdoor fire pit, embracing the natural beauty that surrounds you, telling campfire stories, and indulging in s’mores under the big Texas stars. Feed the mini horses or fish for Bass on the property’s private lake. Relax with your friends and family and enjoy each other’s company.

Upon arrival, find a charcuterie board and wine waiting to greet you and a kitchen stocked with breakfast options to prepare breakfast or brunch at your leisure each morning to share around the large family dining table.

Of course, the real experience is spending time together enjoying all the Ranch offers

Perhaps the most exciting of it all is being on the ranch. Ranch activities include feeding the chickens and mini horses, seeing the cows and horses, and meeting Doc, the resident large animal veterinarian next door and one of your hosts. If you are interested in large animals, spend an hour or a day at the clinic learning about the care of horses and cattle. You can also take a farm tour on ATV, by mule, or hayride. Learn how to saddle a horse or taste the honey from the farm’s Honey bees.
