About the Ranch

The History

Set among the farms and ranches of southeast Texas, Rancho Pillow is a whimsical wonderland that has been a true artistic adventure for owner and designer, Sheila Youngblood. What began as a family compound in 2006 has become a heartfelt landscape that invites all of us into a deeper understanding of ourselves and each other. Poetic and playful, it's an idyllic shelter for Sheila's Latin American folk art finds, colorful architectural restorations, and collected curiosities from both worldly travels and years of hunting in her Round Top backyard.

The Experience

Although Rancho Pillow is only an hour and a half from some of Texas' major metros, this 20 acre compound has an almost otherworldly quality. Shiela and her team have created a magical space that provides a setting for private/corporate events, special occasions, and even a restful respite from urban life to become transformative experiences.

Round Top

For almost five decades, antiquarians, designers, tastemakers, artists, pickers and collectors have journeyed to the treasure troves of Round Top for the semi-annual Antiques Fair. But Round Top is a special place well beyond the four weeks of the year when antiques fill the pastures. With a population of just 90, Round Top is bucolic perfection. Walk through the town square, just seven miles from Rancho Pillow, and experience the history, spirit and creative culture of this vibrant town.


The Land

Rancho Pillow invites you to gather around the fire pit, take a moonlight swim, explore the treehouse, relax in a hammock, and soak in one of the bathhouse's outdoor tubs
