We just returned from a two night stay at The Carleton House for our 34th anniversary. As much as we find Victorian homes fascinating and as much as we enjoyed our stay in the home, we both agree that Karen and Steve, the amazing hosts, are what puts them way over the top as Inn-keepers. They do special things for... More

Where to start?! The house is beautiful! The food is amazing. The massage was great. The bathtub in the Carleton suite is incredible. Private balcony was nice to spend some time together alone. The Inn keepers make sure you have everything your heart desires. Upon leaving they even sent us home with cookies and part of a plant off there... More

We recently stayed at the Carleton house for one week. I can't say enough about how much we appreciated the whole experience. You could spend days looking at the historical features, furnishings and personal items from the original owners of the home or watching the birds in the beautiful gardens as the roses bloom. The soft music that's often playing... More

The Carleton House exceeded all of our expectations. We went for a peaceful relaxing getaway and received exactly that. We reserved the Carleton Suite which is the entire third floor of the main house. The suite has its own sitting room, private balcony, bedroom with a king size bed and private bathroom with a jacuzzi tub for two. Karen made... More

We recently booked two rooms in this B &B. The Victorian house has been completely restored and is filled with beautiful antiques, many from the original owners of the house. The decor is heavy with Victorian period items that fill every wall and available space, so it's difficult to appreciate the wonderful antiques. The bedrooms are large with nice private... More

My husband and I spent the weekend at this charming bed and breakfast in Bonham, Texas. It was the perfect honeymoon getaway! We had the third floor suite, and enjoyed the private balcony, the jetted tub, and the romantic atmosphere. The proprietors are lovely, lovely people. Karen is a phenomenal cook and makes individual breakfasts for her guests. You owe... More

We stayed in the stand alone house which was handicapped accessible for my mom. The hosts are charming and we enjoyed this bed and breakfast. It was hot when we first got there but we were able to get it cooled down. Beds were comfy. Would be fun to be there with a group. This was a fun departure from... More
