About Rocky McAshan

Papa Mac purchased this 1890s stone farm house and defunct dairy as a get away from it all. His personal Easy street. He promptly improved the farm house and added a studio and cottage. Soon after he added a pool, the first in the county. His wife, Edith, a painter, inspired and was the driving force to found the Hill Country Arts Foundation down the road. Along with assistance founding the art club and garden league, the family became a part of the area's history. Throughout the years multiple generations of the family have lived at Bumblebee Lodge and continued her legacy at the Hill Country Arts Foundation.

Rocky McAshan purchased this house in 1945

Why Rocky McAshan chose Ingram

Reasonably priced with lots of space, unique charm, and a large pool.

What makes this house unique

The ability to rent both the lodge and the cottage, as well as the large amount of parking available, makes this an ideal spot for family reunions.

Continuing with Papa Mac's theme of "getting away from it all" this also makes an ideal location for short or long term rentals here, on Easy Street.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a wonderful time! Lots of good friends and a family reunion. Sleeping arrangements were great, as were all the spots for visiting and gaming. Thanks again for a third wonderful few days.

Cozy, family charmer.

  • 5 of 5

This home had a grandmothers home charm to it. We enjoyed our stay and there was plenty of room for our family of 7 to gather and enjoy each other. The owners were very accommodating to us when we had an unplanned change to our vacation. We look forward to visiting again in warmer weather to take advantage of the pool! Thank you for opening your home to us.
