We just turned up here one night in July (2011) on our road trip round Texas, from our lonely planet travel guide recommendation. There was a room available, fortunately, so we were able to stay. The owner was lovely and cooked a fantastic breakfast the next morning. He also sat with us and chatted while we ate. We are not normally a fan of this sort of thing, but it was very interesting to talk to someone local and find out so much about Texas that we didn't know (we are from the UK). He was very knowledgable and bright, and it was great to find out the ins and outs of small town America. We would never have got that in a Best Western!
Our room was lovely (we were shown all the rooms and could choose the one we wanted) with a nice hot shower. You can also help yourself to the booze and fruit juices - never had that before in a B and B - really nice touch! We had brought our own beers, but after 4 hours in the car in Texas in July were rather warm....... Good location - nice and quiet end of town, but an easy walk in the evening for dinner. Would highly recommend this B and B.
