The creative minds behind Houston-based landscape architecture and lifestyle firm Thompson + Hanson have unveiled their latest venture. Meet Hound House: an all-inclusive countryside getaway for canines at T + H Farms in La Grange that boasts private guest rooms, farm-to-table meals made with ingredients grown on the property, a stunning pool with fountains, beautifully maintained walking trails, and shuttle service to and from Houston and Austin. 

There’s no need to spend time rushing your pet to and from a kennel while preparing for a vacation. Hound House will pick up your best friend and drive them to the custom barn-inspired boarding facility via a specially outfitted, air-conditioned van.

Upon arrival, pets are greeted in the carefully planned outdoor and indoor socialization areas at Hound House. The facility features Thompson + Hanson’s signature welcoming, airy architecture. The light, bright interior is comprised of 28 private suites – one for each dog.

Professional dog lovers and canine experts Kristen Hanna and Nate Morris live on the property and operate the facility, which recently welcomed its first round of guests. 

“We met a really wonderful couple that specialize in dog training and canine nutrition,” explains Thompson + Hanson marketing director Karolina Vieser, “And out of that relationship came this idea to have a convenient place between Houston and Austin where people can leave their pets that’s not like a traditional kennel where the dogs stay locked up all day, but rather more of a family style care setting.”

Just like home, guests at Hound House have the run of the 50-plus acre property, with access to both air-conditioned indoor play areas and outdoor walking trails and play structures including a soothing zero entry pool.

Like everything else at Hound House, the cuisine is top notch. Canine guests enjoy a raw feed program during their stay. Most of the food is made on-site with farm raised beef from T + H Farms’ cattle. All meals are included in the price of the stay, with no pesky add-on fees for additional services. This pet resort is truly all-inclusive.
