“Unforgettable Experience!”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

The Far View is a really beautiful place. Gardens, pool, outdoor fireplace, sitting areas, and beautiful grounds just a few minutes from downtown Brenham. Steve is a wonderful host and serves up a delicious breakfast. Four adult stayed in the Carriage House and there was plenty of room to spread out. Quiet and well maintained. Wish we could have stayed longer!!

Room Tip: Carriage House is nice and very spacious. Great for families!

Loved our stay at at Far View! Stayed in the Pool Suite & it was perfect for us. Very comfortable & quiet! The main house where breakfast was served is beautiful & we enjoyed walking the grounds. Wonderful trees & plants. Breakfast was delicious & the innkeepers are very nice. Thanks for a great weekend!

What a beautiful place Far View is. An almost 100 year old estate tucked away amongst huge old trees and lush landscape. We were just minutes away from downtown Brenham and easy access to restaurants, shopping, etc. The hospitality was first rate and the morning breakfasts were works of art and delicious. We stayed in the Carriage House which I would highly recommend. Can't wait to come back and visit again!!

This was our first time to experience Farview. We came to Brenham for the July concert series and spent the night in this lovely place. It was SO quiet that we decided to skip breakfast and sleep in the next day. The bed was very comfortable. Breakfast is one of my favorite things to enjoy at B & B's....so, I'll make it a point to get downstairs next time we stay there. I bet it's just yummy. The grounds are beautiful and I enjoyed reading about the history of the huge and unique home. It's only minutes from downtown Brenham - we will surely be back.

The Far View is the best place to stay while visiting Brenham. We have enjoyed it numerous times over the last five years and prefer it to all other choices. The rooms are perfect. You will sleep great and wake up to a spectacular breakfast made and served by the Inn Keeper! Its friendly, beautiful, and in a perfect location. It is truly Brenham's best place to stay.

It is absolutely peaceful from the time you drive in the grounds. Not a sound of freeways and cars. The nicest neighborhood in town. Great beds and elegant breakfast. SO much better than any motel in town, and a very reasonable price. Infact, cheaper than the big chains. I would give it a perfect score in every way. I will stay no where else on all my trips to see family.

Room Tip: We were in the library. Small but on first floor , which I needed.
