My mother and I had a girl's trip from Alabama/Georgia to Round Top, Texas and stayed for a night at The Prairie. My mother had heard of Rachel Ashwell but I had not. Although the drive up to The Prairie was not what I expected, once we drove up the driveway, we were both in awe. The grounds are lush... More

We reserved a weekend for our wedding at the Prairie last June (2013). What a whimsical and memorable weekend! They offer great rates for reserving the property over multiple days. We had a group of family and friends stay on the property with us; our package included the use of the pearl barn for the weekend. Each of guests had... More

We attended a wedding reception at the Prairie this past weekend and were really impressed with the charming setting. A great place for a wedding reception! Set amidst a rolling hay field, the buildings were well kept and in keeping with the shabby chic theme throughout. We had appetizers in the Rangers Lounge and the ring ceremony was held under...

My mother and I took an overnight trip to The Prairie for her birthday. My mother, a lover of all things shabby chic, had been dying to stay at The Prairie since we first heard about it. I will say that it did not disappoint at all. In all of my travels, I will say that this was the loveliest... More

Thanks to Marie, Deb, and Danny for the most amazing hospitality and care, my husband and I will never look at other hotels the same. The Prairie has definitely exceed all of our expectations. Simply luxurious and comfortable accommodations, and a healthy and scrumptious breakfast. One magnificent place to stay and enjoy a peaceful time.

Seven friends of 40-50 years standing spent 3 nights at The Prairie for a get-away girls trip. We took the entire Lilliput Lodge and from the moment we walked in the door, we knew we had entered a magical space. If you love shabby chic with shades of white and cream, you'll love every room in this old 1870s house.... More

My husband and I stayed at The Prairie for 1 night in April and it was truly magical. Having brought Rachel's book and hearing all about Rachel Ashwell from my shabby chic obsessed sister we managed to plan a night into our 2-week road trip around Texas and Louisiana. From arriving to leaving we both loved everything about the place.... More

One of the most relaxing places on earth. Everything was perfect, from the linens to the back porch, right down to breakfast! We were able to have a glass of wine on the back porch and watch the horses run in the pasture. Marie made us feel right at home. We will be going back!

My husband and I spent a weekend get-away at Rachel Ashwell's Bed & Breakfast outside Round Top Texas called The Prairie. Rachel Ashwell is responsible for coining the phrase, "shabby chic", and the entire property was decorated by her! Each cottage, the main house, the windmill and the barn/hall are unique and perfect for a few days in the country,... More

Great location just a few miles from the square. Wonderful hosts gave us some great touring tips for the local area. Breakfast was delicious. Check out Willow Springs rd outside Fayetteville, there is a wonderful old steel bridge (great photo op) across the creek.
