Rancho LomaTalpa, Texas
Laurie and Robert Williamson call their prairie ranch in Central Texas a "Restaurant + Rest." After tiring of city slicker life (they were in commercial film production in Dallas), the pair purchased these 300 acres, studded with live oaks and white-tailed deer and anchored by a 135-year-old farmhouse, which they converted into a restaurant.
