I stayed in the David Crockett suit while my sister and friend stayed the Sam Houston room. The owners were so nice and accommodating. The place is beautiful. We loved learning about the history of the home and walking around the town and nearby park. We plan to come back again.
Our anniversary is officially this weekend, and we went to Burnet to pick up our children at Camp Longhorn. This is simply a lovely old B&B. The owners are husband/wife team and are school teachers as well. They made our anniversary great -- from recommending a nice restaurant to ensuring we had a great breakfast!
Our host Jesse and Shelli were wonderful. Our room, The Austin Suite, was perfect. It was clean and well appointed. At first I was disappointed that there was no breakfast served at the B and B site. But after a wonderful, home cooked meal, at a local restaurant, paid by voucher I changed my mind (biscuits and gravy were awesome).
This is a wonderful place to stay in Burnet, especially if you love history. This is an 1850's era stage coach stop with a huge wrap around porch and balcony and large suites decorated in period furniture. The bed was incredibly comfortable, as was the "living" area. It's within walking distance of the square and priced extremely well. Get away and truly relax. This is a great piece of history and one of the most unique places you'll stay.
We stayed at the Verandas Guest House for 4 nights...I loved this location. We stayed in the Houston Room which was perfect for our needs. The room is large and has a king-size bed which was super comfy. We sat on the veranda/porch every morning and had coffee and then we got in the car (the purpose of our trip)...and drove. We usually drove to Marble Falls first and got Starbucks (one of my guilty pleasures) and then we drove. The location of this B&B is really great for Hill Country sight-seeing. We drove our new Fiat 124 Spider to Burnet for the purpose of seeing the Hill Country in the fall with the top down. The breakfast that is included with the B&B was at Crazy Gals and we loved trying out different breakfasts every morning. I must say that the French Toast was my favorite. Shelli and Jesse were so awesome...we met them on the first day and they were readily available for anything we needed. The B&B has a common area where there is a full kitchen with refrigerator, microwave, etc. We kept some ice and beer in there for convenience. They must have had some water issues though because the smell of mold and mildew in the common area was stifling. NOTE: this smell was not in the room where we stayed. One other note of caution...hubby got in to take a shower and there was no bath mat. That shower /tub in the Houston room leans a little...this lends itself to a little imbalance and with no bath mat...hubby slipped and nearly fell. Since he has a brand new hip implant that would not have been good...so IF you stay in the Houston room be sure the bath mat is there before you shower. We notified Shelli by email that the incident occurred and she made sure we had the mat by next evening. Funny thing is, the information sheet left about the room declares that the bathtub can be an issue and that the bath mat is needed. So check your bath and if no bath mat, let Shelli and/or Jesse know. We usually don't require a turndown and keep our room to ourselves, so our hosts would make sure that every afternoon, there was a beautifully arranged basket of towels, fresh water bottles, new coffee cups, everything we could need...The hosts gave us a Calendar of Events and a list of "things to do"...we did a bunch of them. As I stated earlier, the location in Burnet is perfect for Hill country sight-seeing...Llano has some wonderful restaurants: Cooper's and Tommie's Pizza...we ate at the local Trailblazer Grill (walking distance and wine/beer)...and I loved the meat loaf there...we did the Vanishing River Cruise and drove out to the Hamilton Pool reserve...we saw Inks Lake, and the National Fish Hatchery and drove the Old Spicewood road...Lastly, two important items: the room rates were more than reasonable for the quality of the room and accommodations and our room was super clean. All in all, it was a wonderful relaxing vacation and our accommodations made everything perfect.…
