We stayed one night and wished we could stay more. It was so relaxing and the bed was comfy and breakfast was yummy. The furnishings were tasteful without being stuffy and the owners, Mary and Harold, we're welcoming and very helpful. The downtown square is only a few blocks away and was very fun to walk around and shop and... More

Wow! This place is wonderful. Mary and Howard were so genuine, kind, helpful, and considerate. Breakfast was delicious and the rooms were extremely comfortable. Located off Main Street, it is close to everything you could ever need. I was worried about street noise, but it wasn't an issue. This house almost felt like a second home. I felt comfortable, happy,... More

As a decorator, owner, Mary, has furnished this incredible home with England's finest. As a tea lover and amateur collector of tea cups, I was in paradise when wandering this piece of history. The rooms are spacious, the beds, dream-like with comfort. We stayed in room one and have already booked it for the Christmas holidays. You need to know... More

This was an awesome stay! Great bed, view and food! The hospitality was so friendly and the location was great, right near downtown and great eating! The house itself was beautiful and decorated with great class as to match its history. We will be returning in July and I am excited to stay again!

What a perfectly lovely place to relax and rejuvenate. Four posh bedrooms and comfortable common areas provide plenty of room to lounge around (even in pjs) and chat, watch movies, read books, or simply gaze at the interesting accoutrements. Three unique bedrooms upstairs, each with a footed tub, and a huge bedroom with attached living room downstairs make this B... More

We stayed in this newly re-opened b&b and were so impressed with everything! The new owners have done an amazing job decorating and filling the rooms with amenities that you don't have to think about anything, just relax! It was less than an hour from Dallas/Fort Worth and just far enough to feel as if you were leaving the city!... More
