My husband surprised me with a romantic weekend for our 28th anniversary. He could not have picked a better place! Our cozy cottage was a beautiful combination of shabby chic meets Tex -Mex. The attention to detail was impressive. The next day we were greeted with the friendliest staff who for the next three days, went out of their way... More

Great Mother/Daughter trip! 4 of us stayed at the Shabby Shack. Gorgeous setting, beautiful, comfortable surroundings, amazing hospitality. Incredible breakfast. Loved our little shopping expeditions in Round Top including Cache Chic, Mimi Bella, Lark and Wild Women Wise Women and of course scrumptious dinner at Royers Cafe. We left with some great finds, fabulous memories, full tummies and happy hearts!!!

The Prairie was everything we expected furnished in Rachel's wonderful style. The furniture was luxurious and we slept like pampered royalty. Danny's morning breakfasts were fabulous. If you want quiet relaxation travel Monday - Wednesday as there are fewer travelers during the early part of the week. We had the run of the place and loved it. Would love to... More

We booked the Seabury Suite which was in the main house on the property called Lilliput Lodge. The Lodge consists of three bedrooms which can be rented out... More

Our rooms were lovely.. very comfortable and gorgeously decorated. (We also very much appreciated the coffee and the selection of teas that were available on our late arrival.) Everything about The Prairie by Rachel Ashwell is charming, inviting, welcoming, peaceful, and serene; from the wonderful staff to the native plant gardens full of butterflies and a sweet, little bunny! A... More

I had never heard of Rachel Ashwell and only had limited knowledge with Shabby Chic but by wife knew both very, very well. In an effort to provide her with an outstanding birthday celebration I chose to reserve the Faith Cottage at The Prairie. Apparently I was lucky to even complete a reservation there because of their popularity but I... More
