“Anniversary Favorite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2011

My partner and I stay here every year on our anniversary for the past 3 years in a row. The romantic atmosphere and sunset views from the hot-tub are some of our best memories yet. We love the near proximity of The Salt Lick BBQ as well as the more romantic Trattoria Lisina. The owners are sweet, considerate and offer just the right touches to make every stay a pleasant, private and romantic one. They keep their distance but will gladly provide directions and restaurant recommendations when request but then they quietly remove themselves and allow you space to enjoy the rolling hills and gorgeous sunrises/sunsets. We often go for a bike ride in the hills around the BnB - they provide maps with turn by turn directions and different distance options. It is always a joy to come back to the bed and breakfast and snuggle up next to the "fake" but ROMANTIC fire with a cup of tea or glass of red wine from the nearby wineries in Driftwood.

Room Tip: Request either the Hideaway or the lux Side Oats Cottage

Enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere. We had a breakfast casserole that was very tasty. We enjoyed the hot tub and the hill country views. The room was spacious and comfy. We enjoyed the fireplace. The location is about 25 min to most restaurants such as salt lick. Overall great for a relaxing getaway!

Jerry and Laurie are super hosts. Their bi-line 'life is good' is right on target for our short visit.
If you enjoy biking, they have some awesome hill country bike routes already mapped out.
Our room was very nice and breakfast was delicious - especally after an early morning bike ride!

There's even a special coffee - Mt Gainor blend -- that is based on some of their Costa Rica travels. The beans are freshly roasted for them in Austin. We even picked some up to bring home.

Cant forget to mention Nell - the Inn cat -- who kept us 'safe' by guarding our porch.

If you want a quiet country get-away with some real nice folks - MGI's the place.

Room Tip: La Posada is really 3 rooms. Tons of space and windows have nice vista views.

We had a wonderful stay at Mt Gainor. Jerry and Laurie the Inn keepers were very warm and welcoming. Loved being out yet close enough to go into Wimberly to shop. Very quite and relaxing. Food was very good. We will return!!

I've stayed in many B&Bs in the Texas Hill Country, and the Mt. Gainor Inn surpasses the rest by far. The room was lovely, the breakfasts were scrumptious, the surroundings were gorgeous, and the bed was the most comfortable one I've ever slept in. But what sticks out in my mind the most is the service provided by Jerry and Laurie, owners of the Mt. Gainor Inn. They were accesible without being intrusive and friendly without it seeming forced. My husband and I felt welcomed from the moment we arrived until the minute we (unfortunately) had to leave. It was akin to staying at a good friend's house. That is, if you have a good friend who likes to spoil you and make absolutely sure you enjoy your stay. I cannot possibly find one negative thing to say about the Mt. Gainor Inn. We plan to return, but I'm a little hesitant to tell all of my friends and family about this place. I don't want it to become so popular that it becomes difficult to get a room. This is definitely THE place to go if you want a quiet relaxing retreat.

Our experience at Mt. Gainor Inn was the best of any B&B we have visited. We stayed in the room separated from the main house to enjoy more privacy. The room was lovely with a whirlpool bathtub for two. We toured the rooms within the house and would have been happy with any of them, all charming and beautifully appointed.

Jerry and Laurie were exceptional hosts and chefs. While enjoying gourmet breakfasts, we spent a lot of time talking and laughing with them and two of the guests. These guest have now become permanent friends.

The location of Mt Gainor in Dripping Springs is pure country complete with stars at night but very close to Wimberly, Frederiksburg and many Texas wineries. We look forward to returning in 2011.
