The bed and breakfast was delightful. The highlight of the stay was the host, Linda. She is the best B&B host I've had the chance to meet. I went with my mom for a girls weekend during the Round Top Spring shows. Linda was like an old friend - she had advice about the shows and other shops in the... More

Beautiful, historic home tucked just off Main Street! Relaxing stay, great service, and friendly owners/staff. I'll be back the next time I'm in the area, and may go back just to visit with Linda again!

My husband and I stayed overnight at the Katy House B&B after completing Tough Mudder Central Texas. We arrived earlier than check in because of our start time but it was no problem at all because they held our luggage and even placed it in our room once it was ready. The B&B itself is beautiful with many historic and... More

Great place to stop on our way to Austin. Innkeepers are wonderful, rooms were lovely, and food was delicious both at the B&B and in town for dinner. Everything a small town should be with surprisingly hip restaurants. Give Back Door Cafe and Front Room Wine Bar a try.

Such a charming trip back in time. The rooms are all decorated in period pieces & soooo very comfortable. Bath had a claw-foot tub/shower & was just delightful. The Texas Special room, which I occupied, had a lovely veranda perfect for enjoying a glass of wine & great conversation. Hosts Linda & Stu were the best. Our breakfast each morning... More

Linda and Stu gave us a warm family-like welcome for our stay in Smithville. If you are ever in the Smithville/Bastrop/Austin area you MUST stay at Katy House. Excellent service in a nice family setting.

Staying at Katy House was fabulous! I highly recommend to all! My room was lovely, Linda was wonderful, the B & B is beautiful and it was so convenient to be able to walk to downtown. I was here on business and addition to being such a lovely atmosphere, I appreciated that the internet was excellent.
