My husband, being the absolute incredible guy that he is, gave me a home-made gift certificate for Christmas to come stay at the Treehouse suite during April bluebonnet season.
I told him all weekend during our stay that he chose well.
The Treehouse suite was secluded from the rest of the rooms, but I was concerned that because it was at the top of the stairs adjacent to the kitchen, that clanging of pans and the cooks talking in the morning would be a rude awakening. Wrong. The cooks were making every effort to be quiet, and we got the added bonus of birds serenading us in the two large trees outside our windows. What a pleasant way to wake up!
The breakfast we had on the 2nd day was absolutely scrumptious ... sausage and egg in a fresh, soft tortilla, with delish salsa. Community breakfast at the large dining table was delightful, and we met some interesting people. It didn't bother me that the owners didn't come to breakfast. We were there to spend time as a married couple, so we didn't need a whole lot of social interaction with others. The one thing I would improve on breakfast, if it were up to me, is that the town is so well-known for all its peach preserves and jams/jellies.....it would have been a lovely touch to have had some Das Peach Haus peach jam for the biscuits rather than a plastic packet of Smucker's grape jelly (which is more like a discount hotel's continental breakfast, as opposed to the charm of a B&B).
The room appointments were perfect, details down to the two bottles of water in the mini fridge, the bejeweled ribbons on the lampshades, bejeweled window shades, and luxurious robes hanging in the closet. The place is older, but does not smell musty at all (I'm sensitive to old, weird smells!).
It was a perfect location, walking distance to most anything. There was only one downside--Perhaps the weekend we were there was some music festival, because somewhere nearby was a band playing loudly (so loud that I could sing along to songs I recognized) til past midnight on Saturday. Otherwise, we appreciated that it was tucked away on a side street, yet at the same time so convenient.
It was a lovely, lovely weekend for this married couple of 31 years to spend together!!
