“great escape”
Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

We had a wonderful stay at the Meyer Bed and Breakfast. We stayed in the African themed 703 lodge. The room was quite large and was equipped with a ceiling fan in addition air conditioning. The Meyer is just a short walk from the center of town and several restaurants are nearby. The hotel staff is very friendly and accommodating. We arrived after the office was closed but had no problem getting into our room. Bottom line, I would definitely stay here again.

Spent two nights at Meyer's B&B, in the Ernestine Meyer cottage (two separate bed/bath suites side-by-side in a small cottage, with a common porch in the front and common deck on the back).
The motley collection of buildings and grounds that comprise Meyer's are full of Texas Hill Country charm, with a combination of the old frame farmhouse/cottage styles mixed with lovely limestone buildings and a more modern "lodge" on one end. The grounds are well-kept and nicely landscaped (although they do include a few non-native, "invasive" species, which is a common problem in Texas), and they have a small, pretty swimming pool.
The true highlight of the grounds, though, has to be the location on Cypress Creek, which is lined with bald cypresses (a few giants), pecans, cottonwoods, turtles and fish in the creek, and lots of birds (we are birders, so the location was very nice for some light bird-watching). An especially nice feature is that they have about 20 acres accessible by stepping-stones across the creek, which is a lightly wooded/grassland area with a deer feeder placed within view of the lodge, thus providing an almost-guaranteed look at a small herd of white-tailed deer, who seem to know just when the feeder is scheduled to spray another round of food. My friend was walking over there in the early morning and spotted a group of wild turkey toms all in a circle displaying for each other. Very nice!
One grounds caution: you will need to get down some stairs or stone steps to reach the creekside, and if you are mobility-impaired, this could be difficult. Our rooms were ground-level, but some rooms are reached by stairs, also.
Our rooms were adorable, decorated with quilts and flowers and lots of homey touches, quite spacious, each with a sitting area, bathroom with full tub/shower, TV, and back doors that opened onto the small, private deck for the two-room cottage. The beds were not huge, but comfortable, and not overly soft, thank goodness (the older we get, the more we want some back support!) Our rooms did not overlook the creek, but had a pleasant view off the deck, and even though close to the road, there wasn't too much traffic, especially at night, so it wasn't a problem (although we could hear hwy 87 in the far distance, a bit surprising but maybe more noticeable against the relative peace and quiet). I might try to get a room overlooking the creek next time, to move a bit further from the road and see if that made any difference. We wanted to leave the doors open to take advantage of the beautifully cool nights, which brings me to a small quibble about the rooms--it was too bad that the windows had been sealed shut, as it would have been very nice to open those instead to get the great cross breeze. (I assume it was done for energy efficiency...) The rooms do have window A/Cs, which is no doubt necessary during the summer, but we didn't need.
One other room tip: the tap water is perfectly fine, but a bit too many minerals for my taste, so if you care about that, you might want some bottled water for the room.
Breakfast in the morning was generous, with an egg dish (ours was a "quiche-type" with ham and vegs in it), and lots of sweet options like pancakes, cakes, and breakfast pastries. I could have wished for more bread/toast options that weren't quite so sweet, though. They had cereal, but no yogurt (that would be a nice addition). The fruit offerings were pretty typical (melons, etc.), but I hope that they use some of the luscious local fruits like the area peaches when they come into season.
The bigger disappointment about breakfast, for me, was the lack of quality breakfast teas. I know this is Texas (yes, I'm Texan, so I can talk!), but a good B&B, whether in Texas or not, should at least carry an English breakfast or Earl Grey (or even, dare I suggest, a Darjeeling!). At the risk of sounding like a tea snob, Cain-brand tea is even worse than Liptons, and should never be offered by any decent establishment. And there is a good place serving decent tea brands in the town, so better options can be found. Not being a coffee drinker, I can't speak to the quality of the coffee they serve. It would also be nice to have access to tea/coffee facilities earlier in the morning, before breakfast, for those of us who would like an early bit before breakfast. Yes, the rooms have a coffee-maker, but again, speaking for the tea drinkers out there, you just can't run water for tea through a coffee maker without picking up some of the lingering coffee oils. It just ends up with bad-tasting tea. By the way, breakfast is only one hour long, so be aware of that timing.
The other plus to the location is its closeness to downtown Comfort. You can easily walk the couple of blocks to reach the historic, central district, where the antique shops and restaurants are. When at the B&B, you feel like you are in the country, so it's a great combination of country feel with convenient town access. Comfort has some nice eating establishments, too, and a great selection of small shops. (A fun aside--many of the shops seem to have their own "host" cats--plump, fluffy, friendly greeters who were a delight for us to encounter.)

Room Tip: Rooms facing the creek might be the most pleasant for views and distance from the road. Each room...

I will not recant everything in the past reviews but will just say we loved it. Travel is our hobby and historic hotels are what we seek out. We had a relaxing two nights in the Creek Haus #163. It has great wifi but TURN IT OFF and go for a walk! Get unplugged and enjoy the creek! Spend some time on the tree swing resting your mind. The breakfast was fabulous and my hubby wants me to find the egg dish made in muffin tins. This will be a place worth visiting again and will choose another building to stay in for the night. I am already thinking about bringing all family here for a weekend and letting the kids enjoy the pool and creek!

What a delightful surprise. The property is meticulously restored with modernized touches where appropriate (our 2-room suite had a gas fireplace inside and another outside on the porch overlooking the creek and meadow).

Everything seems to radiate the detailed attention that the owners pay to the comfort of their guests. (After all, this is located in Comfort, TX!) This isn't really a B&B in the classical sense-- you are not living in their home--the separate rooms and buildings create just enough privacy for us to be comfortable yet close enough to be part of the wonderful facilities. The grounds are wonderful-- a flowing creek, lightly wooded, a meadow, bird feeders everywhere, the deer, lawn furniture and swings placed strategically everywhere. So peaceful. You just want to sit and watch.

Every morning and evening small herds of deer come by to feed just outside the dining area, and the elegant breakfast served (included in room rate) was such a transcendent experience because everyone was watching the deer while enjoying the many different dishes prepared by the kitchen staff. By the way, what a huge arrangement for breakfast! Home-made dishes of every description--eggs, danishes, so much I couldn't even focus on everything because I was (unfortunately) on a diet. By even then, there was plenty for me on my Atkins diet. They take requests in advance and had accommodated us in spades!!

Will we be back?? Can't wait!

Room Tip: Rooms are available at different price levels with different views.

We stayed in Suites 702 & 703. Both are African-themed and if you like hunting trophies you're in for a treat. The layout of the rooms were perfect for our large family with beautiful views of Cypress Creek, the deer that feed across the creek and good WiFi. Just below the rooms is a hot tub and an outdoor fireplace. We visted the B & B in December and temperatures were unseasonably low. One of the rooms became very cold overnight but the owner did their best to make sure we were comfortable the next night. The historic and lovely property offers an amazing breakfasts and is in close proximity to Comfort, TX shopping. If you're interested in a great restaurant, try Po Po Restaurant in Boerne, TX. They offer great southern cooking!

A group of various historical old buildings remade into guest rooms with various themes. Our "schoolroom" was full of character and charm, decorated with high school stuff from the forties and fifties. It was handicap suitable. With the 2 school desks we had 2 work spaces for our two laptops. Good WiFi.

Excellent bed and pillows. Very clean. The whole property and all buildings appear to be very well maintained. Breakfast buffet variey and quality is above average although apparently limited to 1 hour each morning.

The grounds are a great place to sit in comfortable chairs by the stream to watch the deer, read a book or just enjoy the view. Tranquiility and a great place to unwind.

We've stayed here once and are planning our return trip. While it's a B&B, it's more like staying in a hotel than it is staying in someone's house. There's several different buildings with rooms on the property, each of which has its own decor and charm (and quirks, depending upon when the building was originally built). The room we stayed in was built in the 1880's, but it has been updated with air conditioning and a gas fireplace. Some rooms have jacuzzi tubs in them, but there is a hot tub in a common area on the property as well as a swimming pool. There's plenty of places on the property to sit on a hammock or porch swing and watch the world go by, and the food in the morning is great. Comfort is a cool little town and everyone was really friendly. The Meyer makes for a romantic, quiet weekend.
