Paige and Smoot Hull met in Houston, Texas and were married in 2000. After having full careers in the modeling and restaurant industry, Paige and Smoot opened The Vintage Round Top with their first cottage, No. 1450, in the spring of 2012. From urbanites looking to escape the city for a weekend getaway, to group or corporate retreats, to a honeymoon for the new bride and groom, or a must awaited family vacation, The Vintage Round Top gives you the opportunity to travel to a pastoral setting of Modern Vintage elegance for rest and rejuvenation.
The Vintage Round Top property is a boutique vacation home rental with a Modern Vintage style.No. 1450 is a 2400 sq. ft. industrial farmhouse with custom light fixtures, reclaimed woods, as well as one of a kind vintage finds. The house accommodates overnight stays for up to 7 guests.
The Vintage Round Top grew organically from a casual Saturday drive with our three children in the Fall of 2011. That afternoon we stumbled across a farmhouse for sale in Round Top, Texas and decided to “live with intention” by stopping in to visualize our dream of owning a country home for our family. The realtor (Frank Hilbolt) educated us on the need for lodging during the Round Top Antique Fair. The town of 90 swells to 50,000-75,000 people twice per year, and lodging is in high demand. So, what seemed like an ordinary day, turned out to be the beginning of a new chapter in our lives.
We took a leap of faith by purchasing and completely renovating the home in what became our signature Modern Vintage style – a blend of clean, modern lines with vintage touches. That style was not common in the area and garnered the attention of the press, which helped grow the lodging business into a lifestyle brand.
Our goal was to create a space that would be an inspiring backdrop for collaborations, photo shoots, and overnight guests.
We began to host our own workshops and retreats and love being a part of helping others grow and start new things – may that be learning a new skill, meeting a business partner, collaborator or lifelong friend at one our events, or spending time together at a team building retreat. To offer more lodging and full property rentals for these types of events, we are currently building two additional cozy cottages and outdoor spaces named after our three children: the Pierce, the Eisley and the Cameron Lounge.
Having our children be a part of this process from the beginning has been a blessing! We believe in hard work, following our passions, and going after our dreams. Our hope is they will find and follow whatever has been placed in their hearts and will use the road map we’ve shown them through this adventure along the way.
We’re truly humbled by the genuine reaction to our labor of love, and feel our pathway has been guided by God. We thank each and every one of you who have been interested in and supported our journey.
