Earth's Melodies

$170.00 / $185.00 night

Based upon two works by Brenham's own Candilynn Fite-Writer, Earth's Melodies (Room 2), provides tranquility and comfort rarely enjoyed. Private bathroom has a tub/shower combination.


Big Red Truck

$185.00 / $205.00 night

The Big Red Truck, a work by Ann Karol of Fort Worth, Texas, provides the vision for this room.  Bright without weighing heavily on the senses, confidently optimistic without arrogance, relaxed yet sophisticated, this room will delight.  Private bathroom has a shower/tub combination. 


Old Victoria

$170.00 / $185.00 night

With colors and textures inspired by the works of Leiann Klein of Miami, Florida, Old Victoria will leave you rested, recharged and ready to take on the day.

Probably the only facet of the jewel that is Main Street House which has remained un-touched is the frosted door separating the bathroom from the bedchamber.

Leiann's work can be seen in other areas of the house, such as on each room's door (she designed the font and hand painted the room numbers) as well as in the kitchen.

Private bathroom has a low step shower. 


Bridging The Divide

$185.00 / $205.00 night

The shiplap walls drew in the works by Joyce McCown of St. Louis, Missouri, Bridging the Divide (actually named "Language is a Nice Bridge, but Sometimes You Need a Boat", obviously too long to engrave on a door medallion), a simply natural fit. But please, don't try to connect the split bathroom... you'll never make it!  Private bathroom has a low step shower.


Thought Cloud

$170.00 / $185.00 night

Thought Cloud (Room 1), named for the works of art by Joyce McCown of St. Louis, Missouri, is located on the ground floor in the front of the building.  It includes an amazing king size bed, a sitting/reading area, and of course a private full bath with a low step shower.
