“A fantastic getaway just an hour outside of Houston !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2013

Innkeeper Pamela Murski understands what people want when they plan a getaway weekend. Beautifully appointed accommodations, good food and something different than their normal daily grind. This is a place where you can relax, be treated with the best Southern hospitality (including gourmet prepared breakfast in your room!) and really feel like you had a vacation. There's lots to do in Brenham and I wouldn't stay anywhere else!

My husband and I just spent the weekend at Murski Homestead to celebrate our anniversary. We had a wonderful time! Pamela and Tom were wonderful hosts - we enjoyed getting to know them both. The room was lovely, the amenities were great (there were so many lovely touches and details), the grounds are beautiful, and the breakfasts were spectacular!! We got breakfast in bed one morning and we both agreed it was the BEST breakfast we've ever had. Pamela is a spectacular cook. To cap off the experience, we had a private cooking lesson with Pamela and prepared a multi-course meal with her (planned by Pamela just for us). We had so much fun. Pamela is a great teacher - we learned a lot and ended the time eating the fruits of our labor, which, thanks to Pamela were DELICIOUS! We highly recommend Murski B&B for a relaxing weekend.

We really appreciate your taking the time to review our B&B and your experience here. Our experience cooking with you during class was absolutely delightful.....good laughs, good conversation, all hands on and delicious food! It is always gratifying and validating for me to hear that a class guest not only enjoyed the experience but also learned something new. Thank you for the kind words regarding my food and for recommending us to others! We are looking forward to hosting you again and sharing more time in the kitchen! I will pass on to my husband your comments (he too, loved hosting you!).

This has to be the best B&B we have stayed in! Pamela was so helpful and did anything to take care of us. The room was spacious with an ensuite and the best part was the kitchenette in the room. there was a coffee maker, a fridge that had our breakfast in it for the next day and a microwave to heat it up. this was nice as we could get up and eat breakfast as early or as late as we wanted . The meals were amazing.... filled us up with good wholesome Texas food!! we had ordered a Tapas meal for when we arrived and we munched on that on the porch or patio all weekend there was so much!
I would highly recommend this place to anyone and I would go back in a heartbeat.

If you are looking for some relaxing time with a country view, this is the place! We enjoyed our too short stay and sunk into the plush king size bed for some restful shut-eye. Looking forward to returning soon. Some extras that we enjoyed were handmade lavender soap and special touches like luxury bedding, personal attention and quality at every turn. Pamela didn't cut corners and made us feel right at home (without the work of being at home).
Also, they are located just outside of town, so you are minutes from downtown but still in the country--the best of both worlds.

My husband & I stayed in the Lavender room on a Friday evening on our way into Austin as part one of our anniversary weekend. The grounds are beautiful, the home is so cute and the room was comfy, cozy & lovely! The treats left for us were delicious & breakfast was so good- green chile & ham torts with fresh fruit- yum!!! Thank you for providing a wonderful & peaceful escape for our weekend away from the city. I do agree with the other posts and recommendation from the innkeeper to stay 2 nights if possible-we wanted more time there but already had plans elsewhere.

Thanks again!

Room Tip: The Lavender room is beautiful and comfy with a private back porch.

My husband and I spent the week-end at Murski B&B to celebrate my birthday. After taking in the Blue Bell tour and seeing the sights in downtown Brenham, we drove just a short way to the Murskis' place and suddenly felt that we were in another world--so beautiful and peaceful. We were welcomed by Pamela and immediately made to feel right at home. We stayed in the Lavender Room, which has direct access to the front porch as well as its own private back porch, where there was always a breeze.

Pamela's attention to detail is impressive--from the room amenities, to the food, to the grounds outside. We had her prepare a special gourmet dinner for my birthday and dined on our back porch. We could not have eaten in a restaurant anywhere around there that would have been as spectacular.

As the title of this review implies, the location of the B&B is excellent. From here it was an easy drive to downtown Brenham, the Blue Bell factory, Washington on the Brazos, the Lavender Farm, and the wineries. You should definitely spend at least 2 nights here to fully enjoy the area and your time at the Murskis' home.

We stayed at this B&B after a long day of driving in from New Mexico. It was a perfect choice for lots of reasons--we were pretty beat after being on the road for so long so the homemade bath products and comfy bed were ideal. And the DIY approach to breakfast meant that we didn't have to worry about being up early for breakfast, but instead could enjoy the delicious food on the Murski Homestead's beautiful porch after a great night's sleep. It was a wonderful visit and we hope to be back soon!
