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.

My husband and I spent our first night of marriage here and we were very happy with the atmosphere. We were a little skeptical when we were initialing driving to the B&B, it is located in a quiet neighborhood of family housing. We were pleasantly amazed to drive up to the Far View, it is very well secluded from the... More

This B&B is secluded, quiet, relaxing and there are wonderful breakfasts! Choose from a larger separate Carriage House with 2 bedrooms & 2 baths, or individual rooms in the main house, or 2 separate pool suites. The owner lives on the premises, so there is good quality control. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and have fountains, walking paths, outdoor jacuzzi,... More

My fiancé and I were visiting a venue in the area and decided to stay at this B&B rather than a hotel. We absolutely loved it. We'd never stayed at a B&B before. The grounds were nice and the rooms were quaint. We stayed at the Pool suite which have us privacy and easy access to the pool and outdoor... More
