A quaint experience sleeping in an apartment inside the barn. SARA Sanctuary is home to 600+ animals on 128 acres in Central Texas. Our guests can interact with animals as a visitor or as a volunteer helping with daily chores like cleaning, feeding and watering.
The big red barn has two accommodations including a panorama deck that overlooks the sanctuary.
The lower level barn apartment is air conditioned with 2 twin beds, a couch, 2 chairs and a coffee corner. The 2 barn windows have a view of the rooster house.
The friendly greeter pigs often rest in the hay beds below the windows of the barn. You will hear barn noises like cockadoodling and pigs snoring.
🚽🛀 THE BEST LITTLE OUTHOUSE IN TEXAS
The tin shed with the wooden door is called The Best Little Outhouse in Texas with the best views on the property. Experience soaking under the stars or a fresh morning rinse in our outdoor shower and bathtub with privacy curtains. The Outhouse also has indoor plumbing with a toilet and sink. It's about 50 steps from the barn.

Guests have the possibility to cook in our shared kitchen shed. The kitchen has a view of the pig herds in one direction and a view of the barn and pond from the front door.
Bring your own plant-based groceries or you can also order your own groceries online with H-E-B store pickup in Seguin. Or have snacks, ingredients or meals provided by our SARA. We ask for a donation for the extra service of providing groceries or meals.
Other things to note
The only traffic noise is a tractor or pickup truck for feeding pigs. Guests will experience night time sanctuary noises from coyotes howling, dogs barking, pigs snorting, crickets, birds chirping, a rooster or 6. If you don't find any of these country noises soothing, we have ear plugs and a humming AC for a quieter sleep.
When considering snacks and food for yourself, think about fruits and veggies that you can feed the animals too, like carrots, apples, corn, pumpkins, watermelon.
The WiFi can be patchy and very rural with 1 or 2 bar service. We have WiFi boosters on the property but high speed internet where you can watch a movie isn't really possible...yet. We have the basics: you can text, send an email or make calls.

Our sanctuary staff is small and very focused on keeping the animals and guests safe. We realize this can be a wonderful family experience to stay on the sanctuary grounds together and teach children how to respect all living creatures. However, children of any age need to be with a parent or guardian at all times. Bringing your own pets is not allowed on the sanctuary property. We have separate enclosures for our dogs which keep them safe from each other, other animals and from human encounters. Not all dogs like other dogs. Not all dogs like humans. Not all dogs like other farm animals. To keep our guests and all of our animals safe, we ask you not to bring your own animals to the sanctuary.

Joined in November 2021
I am the Founder and Director of SARA Sanctuary located on 128 acres in Central Texas. Our sanctuary has been around for 25 years and is currently home to more than 600 farm animals. In 2022, we are opening two barn accommodations for visitors and volunteers to experience the magic of SARA and the southern charm of our pigs, donkeys, horses, cattle, cats, dogs and goats. We are in the migration path of many birds and the monarch butterfly. To give respect to the animals we protect, we ask our guest to join in eating vegan and plant-based meals during their stay with us.
Tracy's property is located in Seguin, TX, US
