A bed-and-breakfast reminiscent of a Southern antebellum plantation house.
About halfway between Austin and Houston, this small town B&B is located in the heart of the Ant Street Historic District. While the atmosphere is elegant and refined, the emphasis is on relaxation. One favorite guest activity is sitting in a rocking chair on the balcony and taking in a beautiful Texas sunset. The property is a popular spot for small weddings and corporate retreats. Each of the fourteen rooms has a queen bed and is decorated with period antiques. Guests looking for a truly memorable stay will want to request 115 San Antonio. The largest of the rooms, this high-ceilinged retreat features a canopy bed and private bathroom with a whirlpool tub for two. Amenities also include a sampling of Blue Bell ice cream, known as “The Best Ice Cream in the Country.” A taste of this local treat usually spurs visitors to make their way to the nearby Blue Bell Creamery for more.
