Mark and Rob, Managing Partners of The Homestead at 3218, have been life partners for 35 years and legal spouses since February 14, 2014.  Mark, from the Waco area, and Rob, originally from Kentucky, met one March 1980 night at a Waco gay bar formerly located at Columbus & 5th.  We've been a couple ever since and lived in various areas ranging from Washington, DC to Key West to Las Vegas to Phoenix to Miami.  We returned to the Waco area in May 2007 and purchased this farm in rural Crawford from a member of Mark's family - a farm which has been owned in one of Mark's family names continuously since 1884 and recognized as such by a commemorative bronze plaque from the State of Texas.  It is on this historic farm property where you're a welcome member.


We have owned and operated various business ventures over the years. However, The Homestead at 3218 is our biggest undertaking - a pioneering venue created exclusively for gay and bisexual men in this part of Central Texas.   We look forward to welcoming old and new friends to our new private, members-only, clothing-optional retreat - even while we expand its accommodations and amenities.

Feel free to contact us with questions and comments via the phone number or email address  listed above.  We would appreciate hearing from you.  Also, us the contact form above to sign up for our official email messages so you'll be "in the know" first.
