We had a recent trip to Bastrop to celebrate my birthday. Most of the other B&B's in town were already booked, but luckily we were able to get a room at the Morris Mansion which had recently opened. The innkeepers, Gary and Ursula, were very friendly and made us feel at home. They were very helpful with restaurant and activity ideas, and also gave us a tour of the premises and shared the history of the home as well. The room we stayed in was called Katherine's Suite. It was nicely decorated with antiques and beautiful linens, and was spacious and comfortable. Snacks and cold drinks were provided in the room, as well as a bottle of wine. My husband enjoyed watching a football game on the flat screen TV while I enjoyed shopping in the shops on Main Street. Later, at Gary's suggestion, we ate dinner at Baxter's on Main which was wonderul and then took a walk on the nearby riverwalk. The homemade breakfast the next morning was delicious with lots of choices. After breakfst we enjoyed sitting on the large wrap around porch reading. There is also a lovely outdoor garden and sitting area in the spacious yard. Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer. We definitely would stay here again and would enthusiastically recommend the Morris Mansion to others.
