The Inn keeper was great. We got to pick our room...you will need the bathrobes provided to use the bathrooms though. Coffee is free, but breakfast not until the weekend stays. Go to Cooper's bbq for dinner, what a unique experience and the flavors & sights...

I really enjoyed my stay! The place is very nice, and has a spectacular view of the Blanco River from its large back porch. What I loved most was Clair (Mgr) and her awesome staff! We were treated like "family". We've never before stayed at a B&B. The experience was very nice!

"Some upstairs rooms are connected - this is a great hotel for a group to stay in. Our room downstairs was quiet."
"Santa Fe is closest to bathroom and has floor lamp which facilitates reading in bed."
"My wife and I slept in a double most of the night but she wanted to get away from the sound of the water pump the city had going near the river, which is not too loud but she is sensitive. We are tall people 5-9 and 6-2 respectively, and yet the beds were pretty nice. I would suggest for couples get two rooms side by side and if you can't get enough room in one bed you can always have the extra room."
"Upstairs offers more privacy... But we were very content downstairs with the light occupancy."
