We were on a couples retreat and my husband and I stayed here with another couple and we both thoroughly enjoyed it! The grounds are beautiful and the fireplaces in the rooms add that special touch. The innkeepers are very friendly! Great company at breakfast =). We will be coming back!

The Blair House Inn is a cozy Texas Hill Country B&B owned and professionally operated by Mike and Vickie Schneider. It is located on an estate sized acreage just east of Wimberley Texas; an eclectic town with lots of interesting shops. There are several Wineries within easy driving distance and nearby is the first Olive Oil grove/producer in the Hill Country run by a real Texas character you will just love to get to know. The Blair House Inn has two multi-suite cottages, three individual cottages and 3 suites in the main house. We have stayed in several of the cottages and suites and have loved every one. Each suite/cottage has a unique décor with particular emphasis on guest comfort. There is a large swimming pool, spa and hiking trails to allow every guest the choice of leisure or an invigorating walk over hill and dale. Each evening your selection of wine and a delicious desert are provided in your cottage or suite. Your breakfasts are prepared by an award winning Chef so you can be assured of a delicious morning meal, not the usual B&B fare, but gourmet offerings.

The Blair House Inn has a world-class Chef; Chef Norris Sebastian, who provides group, multi-day cooking schools or one-on-one individual instruction in culinary skills. Chef Sebastian oversees the curriculum and provides personalized guidance as you learn how a professional Chef plans, prepares and presents a wide array of gourmet recipes. Chef Sebastian is an outstanding instructor, personable and a pure joy to have as your personal guide to improving your cooking skills. This was the fifth class I have taken at Blair House. I have taken two of the “themed group schools” which were great fun and real learning experiences. The last three courses have been one-on-one classes which really allow one to get personalized attention and in depth instruction from Chef Sebastian. Chef’s effervescent personality and outstanding teaching skills truly shine in the one-on-one format. While I improved my cooking abilities, my wife loafed by the pool, shopped, read books and just enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere of the Blair House Inn. She also enjoyed the fruits of Chef Sebastian’s skills by joining us for a leisurely lunch on Friday and then attending the Saturday evening dinner prepared by Chef and me, the student. The Blair House Inn opens its doors to inn guests and locals who come for the once a week multi-course feast prepared by Chef Sebastian and the one-on-one cooking school attendee.

This is our favorite B&B so we go back as often as we can. We highly recommend the Blair House Inn and their cooking schools. Mike and Vickie are gracious and fun hosts and Chef Sebastian is a real treasure to get to know. Their website: http://blairhouseinn.com/ provides all the information on the B&B and cooking schools.

The Texas Hill Country has many hidden treasures and Blair House Inn is one of the most valuable you will ever find. Nestled on a hillside the main lodge and cottages overlook tree filled valleys. It is not unusual to see deer and other wildlife in the area. If you enjoy artwork this is the place. Works by local and national artists are on display and for sale. I have not yet touched on the food. It is fantastic! The best part is that the chef is always willing to share. They also offer cooking classes on a regular basis.
I have stayed at many bed & breakfasts and I have to say that Blair House Inn is one I would recommend when visiting the Texas Hill Country.

Mike, Vickie & Chef Sebastian, and Staff, I just returned from the most relaxing, enjoyable, weekend with my mother. I really wanted to take her some place extra-special for her 76th birthday! We were treated with such pampering and attention! You are to be commended for the remarkable job you did in assuring that our stay was perfect! We loved the decor & artwork on display throughout the house. What a treat to come back to our room each evening and find a tray with a delicious dessert, tea & wine. We enjoyed taking it out to the front porch each evening and watch the most beautiful sunsets the hill country has to offer! The breakfast each morning was out of this world!! (Fresh squeezed juice, fruit and eggs benedict and more!) Thanks for everything and I will be returning with my husband very soon!

My husband and I stayed at the Blair House Inn for our 10th wedding anniversary. The reservation process was easy (LOVE online reservations!), communication was great, everyone was very friendly, food was excellent - I just couldn't say anything bad about The Blair House Inn. Chef Sebastian, Vickie, Mike and all the staff were wonderful and attentive. We cannot wait to go back when the weather is more cooperative and enjoy more that the Blair House has to offer.

Mike and Vickie,

It was such a pleasure to be there at your Bed and Breakfast. Everything was fabulous from the time Gary and I arrived to the time we left!

Thank you for your hospitality, everyone was warm and friendly.

We love the cabin we were in. The furniture was VERY comfortable and cozy with the fireplace.
Our own wrap around porch was great! We had a nice scenic view and the breeze was great as we relaxed on the lounge chairs.
The tour at the Olive Grove was very interesting also, Thanks for the picnic lunch!

We are truely looking forward to visiting you again.

Thanks again for a great stay.
