My husband and I went at the end of May and it was perfect. The home is beautifully decorated with furniture that complemented the character of the home. We went with two other couples to celebrate a friend's birthday and it was wonderful to enjoy a late night complimentary brownie with them as we swung on the porch swing. We... More

My husband and I and two of our couple friends stayed here for a birthday getaway for myself. This is our second time to stay here and it was such a wonderful experience. We had the whole upstairs to ourselves and every room was so perfect. Terry and Liz thought of everything from a personal in-room Keurig with all the... More

We stayed while attending a wedding. The rooms and linen were wonderful. A/C and hearing worked great as well as the plumbing. They have taken very good care of this lovely older home. Cheryl was inviting and accessible but not overly attentive which was good. Breakfast was awesome. We really enjoyed and plan to go back again.

My boyfriend and I found this in the Texas Travel guide. I was immediately drawn in just from the pictures on the website. We got there and Cheryl warmly greeted us and gave us a tour of the house and told us some of the history. I fell in love with the house right away. Breakfast on Saturday by Christie... More

My boyfriend and I needed to get out of the hustle-and-bustle of Austin and a quick getaway was the trick. He found this house in Luling and we were sold. We love small town visits where you aren't distracted by huge events or hundreds of bars like Austin. We checked in, ordered a pizza and watched football and movies in... More

We stayed one night at the B&B and had a great time. We especially loved the huge porches & balconies to sit outside and enjoy the weather. It was also a lot of fun to hear about the history of the house.

We've dined at the 1896 Tavern Restaurant twice, first with a large group to celebrate an anniversary and second, an intimate meal with a few close friends. The ambience is one of relaxed elegance in a preserved historic home, with several small dining nooks, each with only a few tables. Live music completes the charm. The privacy is ideal whether...

The ‘1896 Tavern’ restaurant is located on the first floor of the Francis Ainsworth House and is open to the public. My husband recently chose the ‘The 1896 Tavern’, to host a nice family dinner for my birthday. We enjoyed a private room decorated in vintage décor and relaxed with our wine selections hearing wonderful music playing in the background.... More

This turn of the century house, set in the heart of Luling, TX, is full of charm. We stayed in "Sarah's Suite" which was just off the upstairs side veranda (very cool). It had a welcoming big king sized bed that was quite cozy, a cheerful yellow bathroom, and all was very clean. It was a beautiful fall day so... More

The place was anything but a massacre. Don is a very pleasant person and likable, however his dog didn't like me but liked my wife. Dallas traffic and one accident in Waco made our 4.5 hr trip 6 hrs but he was available as soon as we arrived. We had a golf tournament benefiting the Wounded Warrior Project that Saturday... More
