“Romantic, quiet getaway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2008

Went to Pelt Farm for a weekend away from the kids and hiking in Big Thicket. The farm is a beautiful place -pastoral and quiet. There are two rooms - the Lone Star (more like GOP) which we were in, and the French Country room. We are staunch democrats so we rolled our eyes and had a good laugh when we saw all the GOP Bush and Perry memorabilia on the walls - thank goodness this sad era in our history will be over soon. Other than that and the microwavable Jimmy Dean breakfast tacos, we absolutely loved our stay. The innkeeper has a great sense of style and the room did not come off as kitschy or tacky, but very classy in a Texas country sort of style. The guest rooms are away from the main home and there wasn't anyone in the French room, so we had plenty of privacy. The bed was so comfortable and I didn't want to get out of the big bathtub. The weekend was a memorable one for us so we have decided to return every year and rekindle our romance. - in the French room. The fruit, teas, cereal, and other snacks were a wonderful touch, but the cheese, coldcut, and cracker plate was just a Lunchables taken out of the package. For a hundred bucks a night I was expecting something a little nicer. Big Thicket is beautiful and worth the trip just to see the carnivorous plants. We ate dinner ate a huge steak place not too far away - the name escapes me - and the food was really good. We were pleasantly surprised. They even had a bottle of Joseph Phelps Insignia offered on their wine list! Another diner type place in Kountze was just awful.

  • Liked — The farm was so beautiful and peaceful. The room was spotless, very comforatable, and beautiful
  • Disliked — The pictures of Bush and Perry, the microwave breakfast tacos, the Lunchables on a platter
  • Stayed October 2007, traveled as a couple
