My husband and I visited Katy House this past weekend. We stayed in the "Katy Limited" in the main house, and everything was perfect. We felt as though we had stepped back in time from the moment we entered Smithville, and Katy House continued that feeling. The house was in pristine condition, decorated with lovely antique furniture, and our room... More

We were so looking forward to everything to be as we read on the website, but upon arriving and seeing the For Sale sign in front, we knew it may not be. The innkeepers were out of the country and interim innkeepers were in their second week of running the Katy House. We were told that because the property is... More

Loved everything about this Bed and Breakfast. From walking into on the hardwood floors, looking at all the memorabilia from the Railroad, to the clawfoot bath in the 'Texas Special' suite. Just amazing history. Breakfast was a scrumptious homemade bread, eggs, homemade preserves, fruit and many more options. Easy check in and easy check out. Would definitely stay here again.

Katy House B&B is a charming place to spend the weekend in historic Smithville. The delicious breakfast is the icing on the cake! Visit in the autumn. You can walk two blocks to downtown, you can visit the Chamber of Commerce Visitors' Center, shops and have a delicious dinner at Back Door Cafe.

This grand old house is located two short blocks from antique row and a tiny park by the railroad tracks. The curtain surrounding the clawfoot tub in our private bathroom (sink nestled in an old trestle sewing machine table) and the bedroom decorated with train pictures (and a gorgeous quilt on the big wooden bed) set the atmosphere. I loved... More

Beautiful old house, gracious and friendly hosts, and delicious breakfast. The Katy House is a first-rate B&B. We enjoyed exploring Smithville. After a long day of walking around town, the rocking chairs on the balcony of the Texas Special room offer a great way to relax. Other reviews have noted noise from the emergency siren and passing trains, but these... More

My husband and I stayed at Katy House for one night at the start of our (long!) honeymoon road trip. We loved our room and the porch/decking area was an added treat. In the morning we were delighted by an amazing home-cooked breakfast (those eggs! I won't forget them!) & freshly baked cookies, as well as great conversation. Highly recommended!

We picked the Katy House based on other reviews and were super happy with our choice. Check in was a breeze, our room was lovely and the rockers on the front porch were great to sit outside and read a book on a lazy afternoon (I even napped on the front porch swing). We did the walk through town to... More

I stayed recently at the Katy House for three nights. Bruce and Sallie are great conversationalists. Breakfast was very good and I enjoyed sitting and talking with them. I stayed in the Texas Room and it was very comfortable. I got a good night's sleep each night, the train never woke me up. Smithville is a very nice little town... More

We've stayed at the Katy House several times and always enjoy our stay. It is a beautiful house with all upstairs bedrooms. The steps upstairs are very friendly though and not difficult to climb. Sallie and Bruce are gracious hosts and we would recommend their B & B without reservation. I notice that several commented on the railroad noise, but... More
