Far View Bed and Breakfast was the perfect place to take my wife for our 10th anniversary. The pool suite was romantic and the entire estate has a secluded, tranquil feel. I definitely recommend this B&B to anyone looking to relax and get away from it all.

We found a delightful secluded oasis full of amenities less than 2 miles from downtown Brenham. Pool suites and carriage house; delicious and filling breakfast, and amazing patio area. Just what the doctor ordered.

Owning our own business, my husband works 10-12 hour days for 6-7 days a week. When he agreed to go out of town for a night, I was thrilled to find a room at the Far View for just one night. Such a beautiful property, even though it is in the middle of town, it felt like we were in... More

My husband and I stayed at Far View recently and absolutely loved it. Before we'd even walked into the house we were thinking of when we could come back. The landscaping is beautiful. You can easily forget you're near civilization. The house itself is so neat. Not to mention, the pool and outdoor kitchen are great for entertaining. Breakfast was... More

From the first moment we saw this property, we knew we were in for a special treat. Upon arriving, we were told we had been given a complementary upgrade to a pool side suite. What a surprise! An ample room with a king size bed, sitting area, fireplace, and best of all, the Jacuzzi for two... Steve, the host, was... More

We thought the accommodations were nice...loved the outdoor kitchen and lounge area next to the pool. My only ding is there were leaves everywhere. Only a minor problem to get kids to clean feet after pool. Steve the owner was really nice, and our overall stay was great.

My Husband and I stayed here last weekend for our first anniversary. The grounds were so beautiful and calm. We really enjoyed how quiet it was. We only stayed one night, but we were able to cook in the outdoor kitchen and we enjoyed the hot tub. Our fireplace wasn't lighting and we called for help and they came right... More

My mom and I shared one night there during the Washington County Fair. It was quiet, serene and comfortable. In fact, we thought we were the only ones there...only to find out it was a full house. But, who knew? We didn't hear a soul. We saw a couple of couples so we knew we weren't alone. But because the... More

Steve, the owner was originally of Canadian extraction and recently became a citizen of Texas and the USA. His status as a host may have been enhanced by the process of naturalization, but his commitment to guest comfort and the cuisine served for breakfast needed no enhancement. The breakfast Steve serves has always been one of the best we have... More

The room was fabulous, I've stayed there before with my partner! This time I just went for a little solitude. The breakfast is really good and the B and B is very close to the absolutely adorable main street of Brenham.
