    "One of the most outstanding small meeting establishments in the state." - Texas Highways Magazine

    "This is the best B &B...This was our 3rd time to Brenham for the great music on the square and we knew we wanted to stay at this lovely inn again. The rooms are spacious and the bedding is soft and very comfortable. We had Blue Bell ice cream for an afternoon snack and the owners are so hospitable. We will stay here again next year."

    "We are so happy we chose this B&B for July 4th weekend. Each room is huge - super tall ceilings, which to me makes a difference when staying in one room for an extended period of time. Really pretty building. Suzy, which checked us in was extremely kind and helpful. The B&B even provided sandwiches, snacks, drinks, Blue Bell ice cream and fold-away lawn chairs to help us with our July 4th Fireworks watching. Thank you. We'll be back!"
