About Our Brenham Ranch

Our True Texas Guest Ranch Is a Romantic Getaway

Come experience a true Texas original guest ranch with over 125 years of history in Brenham, Texas.

Jakub Murski, Jr. emigrating from Poland in the late 1800s, journeyed to Brenham, purchased 150 rolling acres, and built his family’s homestead, still a working ranch but also, now a Texas guest ranch, out of long leaf pine and cypress. This guest ranch home, now offering Brenham lodging, has remained in the Murski family throughout the generations. It was lovingly restored to its original beauty (along with some modern conveniences) in 2001. Guests of Murski Homestead become part of living history, as they experience first hand the craftsmanship of Jakub Murski.

Our Texas Guest Ranch Features:

  • Restored Ranch Style Semi-hosted Lodging Accommodations
  • Birding & Wildlife
  • Ranch Weekend Getaways

About the Innkeeper

Pamela Murski’s background is diverse and her rich life experiences have woven a colorful tapestry. As a child she lived in the city and learned proper etiquette surrounded by culture while at the same time making weekend trips to the rural hometown of her mother, where she learned to appreciate the simple goodness of fresh air and fresh food. That appreciation grew when Pamela moved to the country with her parents. She found herself rising before dawn to help work the family farm, including milking the cow, feeding livestock, gathering eggs and working the “organic” garden- before anyone knew what “organic” meant! She was taught the fine art of canning and preserving by her mother and still enjoys gathering grapes and dewberries from wild vines to make her delicious jams and jellies.  She's always willing to share lessons on life in the country!

After graduating from Texas A&M with a Masters, Pamela dove into organic gardening and cooking with herbs. After several years in the corporate world and owning and operating several businesses, Pamela left that world to restore the family home and open it to travelers wishing to experience a bit of the country and looking to relax, refresh and restore from their hectic daily lives.
