We stopped for the morning in Marshall and had the best time! By chance we found this lovely home and feel so thankful we did! We got there first thing in the morning and were lucky enough to get a customized private tour. Our guide was outstandingly knowledgable and really brought the lives of this family to life! :) It...

I first read about the B&B located at the Starr Mansion in my Texas State Parks book. It sounded intriguing and a little out of the ordinary, so I figured why not. I really didn't have high expectations, but I was pleasantly surprised. We stayed one weekend in Feb '02 (one of those freakishly warm weekends in Texas). Guests stay... More
