I went to The Prairie solo for the 25 year anniversary of Shabby Chic and I had a great time. Rachel was an amazing host taking us on a tour of all of the accommodations, eating dinner then later watching a movie with us. The food was amazing! Five star for sure. Thank you to the chef for all the... More

My husband and I stayed in the Cornflower Cottage and absolutely loved it. Could not have picked a better place to stay in Round Top. Breakfast was unbelievable. There was a fresh pot of coffee already waiting for us when we walked in the lounge. We had fresh fruit, bacon, buttered toast, hash browns and the best scrambled eggs we've... More

The overall experience was tainted by mice running around in the house where we stayed. The house was well decorated and the rooms were clean. It was quiet and private. I was not comfortable letting a toddler crawl around on the floor.

This was my second stay and I just love this place. Last time we stayed in the Bluebonnet barn but everything was booked except the cottage house, so we stayed there this time. It was at the far end of the property and way more than what we needed. A nice big house with 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, 2 family... More

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
