An Intimate Country Inn


Just on the outskirts of Corpus Christi, Texas, we welcome you to discover Knolle Farm & Ranch, with its upscale country inn, working ranch, and event and wedding facilities. It is a place truly unique to this area; but still capturing the best of historic south Texas culture and hospitality. It stands alone in its own special world, quite different from what comes to most minds when one thinks of this area. You wont find flat farmlands or sand dunes, or miles of dense brush country. Nor will you find the pressures of city-life or the noise and commotion of such places. Instead, slip slowly into a small pocket of gently rolling hills and hundreds of acres of broad green Nueces river-bottom land, dotted with ancient oaks dripping with low hanging moss. It is a pastoral countryside where rugged meets refined. It is remote yet easily accessible. It is graceful and romantic with its quaint white clapboard chapel that is perfect for a Corpus christi wedding, yet, ever so strong and solid a home to many.

This historic private ranch that was the home of the world's largest herd of Jersey cattle opened its doors to share its way of life in 1997. Spanning 3 counties, this private ranch in San Patricio, Jim Wells and Nueces counties is the home of the world's largest jersey cattle herd since the 1930s. In 1997 we opened the doors for our Bed & Breakfast and ranch; We invite you to join us here in experiencing a classic Texas country retreat. Do not expect to find ten gallon hats, 5" spurs or barbed wire bedside lamps. No, here you will find honest, unpretentious, traditional hospitality and warmth based on a long heritage of 5 generations of family. It exudes true Texas class and an authentic timeless grace, setting us aside from others.

Connecting you with traditional South Texas pastimes and true country luxury, we will indulge you in so many ways. Does the idea of down pillows, fine linens, prime beef, fresh seafood, and hand-picked vegetables straight from our garden tempt you? Does the idea of breakfast delivered to you, or a stress free wedding with every detail perfectly orchestrated by our staff sound great to you? Does Texas sporting culture, with such diversions as superb deer, waterfowl and dove hunting opportunities, sporting clays, or bass fishing sound like what you need? If these visions cause you to long for another way of life, please read on and discover our world at Knolle Farm & Ranch. We welcome you; it is your estate; it is your escape!
