My husband and I have stayed in quite a few B&Bs over the years. You have to expect some quirks in these places. The buildings that house many B&Bs, including the Main Street B&B, have been around a long, long time; long before master planned mega hotels with their cookie cutter rooms, sprawling parking lots and sparkling pools. So when I hear someone bash a place like this for not having good parking (and other silly, shallow things that the "hilton" crowd complains about) I can't help but roll my eyes. What are they supposed to do? Knock down a half dozen equally historic buildings so they can pave a parking lot around themselves? Stay on the beaten path. I really could go on but I will get off my soapbox. If you are reading this, considering a stay in this B&B or any other, please have an open mind. These places are unlike hotel/motels in many wonderful ways.
So...about Suite 205. We loved it. We stayed at the Main Street B&B December 2007. We are planning a stay at a hill country B&B this April and I realized I never gave this place its well-deserved review.
Suite 205 has a cute sitting area, dining/kitchen area, bedroom and bath. The limestone walls and wood are so beautiful. There are small round holes in the limestone where beams must have been from a bygone era of its architecture. Looks neat. The sitting area is comfy. The bed frame is old so its a bit noisy, but again, B&Bs are about character not silent beds. The bathroom is gorgeous and the large jetted tub was a treat for my aching, pregnant body. There is no shower, but I for one did not care, the tub more than made up for it.
Our room was completely clean. Breakfast was delivered to our room every morning. It was great. Each morning there were several food items (large breakfast burritos, fruit etc), coffee, juice and water.
Check-in and check-out was smooth.
It was a romantic room with plenty of space. I would definitely stay there again.
