Over the past 13 years we have come to this cozy place for our anniversary and my husband's birthdays mainly because each of those dates coincides with the Antique Preview week in Warrenton and the surrounding area. It is only a 20 mile or so ride to the rolling farmlands filled with vendors, and gives you a quiet place to come back to after spending the day with thousands of people. People have mentioned the noise of the train, but we just do not mind it at all. We actually hear maybe 5 or 6 a day, and if they are at night, well, the beds are so comfortable that we just don not notice.
On our last getaway, we stayed for four nights (adding the last one at the last minute), wandered around Brenham (it does not take long, but it has many charming spots), shopped the antique shows, and were even graciously allowed to store a purchase in the ballroom until we were ready to take it home. Totally helpful owners and staff. My husband even had an ipad returned to him after leaving it near the coffee maker. Owners and staff are the integrity kind of people you want watching out for your things.
There is a little room upstairs with gourmet coffees, ice cream in the freezer, sodas in the fridge, a microwave, spoons, teas, corkscrews, coffee cups, wine glasses-everything you might need for a little pick me up if you were at home. the wine and snacks tradition around 6pm is also a great way to unwind at the end of the day, sitting on the big terrace in the awesome white rocking chairs...Ant Street knows what they are doing, and they do it very well.
