We welcome you to sit back and relax in a Frank Loyd Wright inspired home designed and built in 1953 by Sam & Veva Saylor out of the beauty they found before their eyes, and within the reach of their own hands.
They made it with love, and they made it for everyone.
Come enjoy yourself!

The Saylor House is a local landmark in Historic Port Lavaca, TX that has endured for generations.
Less than 20 miles from Indianola (Once known as the gem of the West), and the site where La Salle made his claim for France for all land from the Mississippi River to Texas.
After suffering shipwreck between the inhospitable barrier island and the coast René Robert Cavelier, Sieur de La Salle, and his men barely made it to shore.
La Salle named a nearby estuary Rivière de Les Veches, or "Cow River," because of the buffalo in the area, and the Spanish translated his French to La Baca which became Lavaca.
Amusingly La Salle's journal entries initially made fun of the cannibalistic Karankawa Indians whom he noted ridiculously covered themselves in mud.
However, after mosquito season set in La Salle did later note in his journal that the "mud" the Karankawa covered themselves with really did make a good and excellent insect blocker when needed.
In fact it is the amazing insect ecosystem and bio diversity of this region which allows so many distinct ecosystems in the area to flourish.
From bottle nosed dolphin, to man-o-war, jellyfish, in fact fish of every kind. Here in the coastal wetlands you'll find amazing arachnids, multitudinous insects of every variety, and even rare and dissapearing avians like the red tailed hawk. The nearly extinct whooping crane can also be observed in the area or even just a few miles down the road in the Aransas Wildlife Refuge!
Let the nature lover in you get exited and joins us for fishing or birding in historic Port Lavaca Texas, or as the locals call it Paradise by the Bay!
