“Take a bottle of wine to share on the grounds by the pool......................”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

Great place for romance. Pool and grounds are amazing with outside sitting areas and lush landscape. This was our favorite part. Inside the home is pretty plain, we stayed in the Star room, it was average. One bathrobe which we felt was odd, hotel bar of soap and shampoo. Towels weren't soft. No personal touches that we are used to with B&B's. Innkeeper is wonderful and funny. Breakfast wasn't anything special. Really enjoyed the pool. Won't go back but was fine for the night.

Room Tip: We see there are suites with jacuzzi tubs, I would recomment a step up from the general rooms in the...

Far View B&B was great. We stayed in the poolside room and everything was as advertised. Our only drawback would be the fact the Brenham offered little in terms of things to do after 5pm. Again, thanks for the great time and wonderful breakfast.

The Far View is a really beautiful place. Gardens, pool, outdoor fireplace, sitting areas, and beautiful grounds just a few minutes from downtown Brenham. Steve is a wonderful host and serves up a delicious breakfast. Four adult stayed in the Carriage House and there was plenty of room to spread out. Quiet and well maintained. Wish we could have stayed longer!!

Room Tip: Carriage House is nice and very spacious. Great for families!

Loved our stay at at Far View! Stayed in the Pool Suite & it was perfect for us. Very comfortable & quiet! The main house where breakfast was served is beautiful & we enjoyed walking the grounds. Wonderful trees & plants. Breakfast was delicious & the innkeepers are very nice. Thanks for a great weekend!

What a beautiful place Far View is. An almost 100 year old estate tucked away amongst huge old trees and lush landscape. We were just minutes away from downtown Brenham and easy access to restaurants, shopping, etc. The hospitality was first rate and the morning breakfasts were works of art and delicious. We stayed in the Carriage House which I would highly recommend. Can't wait to come back and visit again!!

This was our first time to experience Farview. We came to Brenham for the July concert series and spent the night in this lovely place. It was SO quiet that we decided to skip breakfast and sleep in the next day. The bed was very comfortable. Breakfast is one of my favorite things to enjoy at B & B's....so, I'll make it a point to get downstairs next time we stay there. I bet it's just yummy. The grounds are beautiful and I enjoyed reading about the history of the huge and unique home. It's only minutes from downtown Brenham - we will surely be back.

The Far View is the best place to stay while visiting Brenham. We have enjoyed it numerous times over the last five years and prefer it to all other choices. The rooms are perfect. You will sleep great and wake up to a spectacular breakfast made and served by the Inn Keeper! Its friendly, beautiful, and in a perfect location. It is truly Brenham's best place to stay.
