“get away”
Reviewed January 15, 2014

What a romantic and charming experience . As a former hospitality geek I truly appreciated the attention to details as well as the unique amenities provided . Pamela has preserved the integrety of the homestead while spoiling us with all of the amenities of a 5 star experience. Comfy beds you don't want to get out of, in room breakfast that's not the run of the mill bagel and cream cheese, lavender soaps, homemade liquor in crystal decanter to top off your evening . We look forward to a return visit we had such a great time. Our only disappointment was we were unaware of Pamela's culinary expertise and will order from her dinner menu next time. Looking forward to our return visit.

My wife and I had the privilege of staying at this charming B&B. Pamela is amazing and delivers nothing but the absolute best service! If you love food try everything and I mean EVERYTHING she has to offer. Nothing here is store bought even the orange juice tasted fresh squeezed. We were very impressed with all of the little details that went into our room, all of which made it a very romantic escape.

P.S. Stay in the Garden Room it has a wonderful jetted tub that is sure to cure all of your minor aches. Mix that with some wines and cheeses and you will never want to leave. This place truly is a home away from home.

Room Tip: The Garden Room is newly remodeled and is fabulous! Left nothing more to be desired.

Loved, loved, loved this place. Did the Foodie Weekend package. It was so much fun. Pamela took us around her area that had different food bearing trees and her herbs. We learned quite a bit and then we cooked and oh what fun! Both my husband and I cook and we have started a raised garden this year with a herb garden on the side so got some great ideas for different plants and how to use them. The meal was delicious and Pamela is such a great teacher. Her husband is also so nice and we loved having him around. We spent the afternoon shopping in downtown Brenham, very charming a close to the B & B. Would and will definitely do this again, pricing is excellent. Best romantic get-away we have had in a while. Wound recommend to any and everyone! Thank you Pamela and Tom.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Lavender room, excellent, quite room.

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.
