“Fantastic B&B!”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

Me and my girlfriend recently stayed at the smokehaus cottage for her 30th birthday and we loved everything about this place. First of all, they were pet friendly so we brought our little rat terrier and she loved running around and playing with Butterball, the owner's sweet old dog. Also this place is so close to the luchenbach dance hall, Grape Creek & Becker wineries. The owners were so nice when we checked in, they gave us a map and recommendations to all their favorite local spots. The breakfast the next day was great too. The only regret I have is not staying another night. Great people, room, location, and food!

Could never recommend this B&B. Owner was rude! Bed was hard as a brick! The hooks are still there as one of the other reviews stated. Owner was not truthful when she said they had been removed. Was not worth the money! Would have rather stayed somewhere else but she has a 10 day cancellation notice. Which now I see why she does because they would be refunding money right and left. Rooms are dated! Porch and stairs were very dirty!

Keep in mind when you are researching property reviews that there are a myriad of problems a person/couple could be experiencing at the time, that blocks them from finding anything positive to say about their stay.

This couple did not state the room they stayed in, but I am assuming it was the Cypress room. Let me address the "hooks" that seem to be such a problem. A long time ago, when it was fashionable to have beds surrounded by tulle and netting, we had hooks in the ceiling to hold the netting and draped it around the bed. Several years ago we discontinued the netting but the hooks were drilled so deeply into the sheetrock that we left them there. I never realized that these small hooks would be such a problem for .00001% of guests. We removed the hooks from the Coral Room, so, NO I did not lie about that. However the hooks are still present in the Cypress Room, and believe me, we will have them removed IMMEDIATELY so that the hooks don't offend anyone else.

The Cypress Room is not dated. The bedding is neutral and was purchased in April of 2013. The room's color scheme is taupe and red. Our Jacuzzi tubs have been updated in each of the rooms that have Jacuzzi tubs.

We do have a 10 day cancellation policy as do most B&B's and hotels. If we allowed everyone to decide they were cancelling their reservation at the last minute, we would have a very difficult time re-booking the rooms, and this is a business.

As for the porch and stairs being "dirty", well, this is an OUTDOOR porch and staircase. Pollen and dust blow in the wind and settle onto the porch, and the wind is something that even we will admit to not being able to control. The porch and stairs are mopped and swept frequently.

Please keep in mind as you are reading reviews for any Inn, restaurant, or attraction, that some people are not going to be pleased. Period. They are negative in every aspect of their life, and can't find the good in each experience. We hope that you will continue to come stay with us, and we look forward to making your experience fantastic!

Full Moon met our expectations - mostly. The location, hospitality and food are top notch. We stayed in the Coral Room for a 23rd anniversary and met some great folks from Oklahoma there for the weekend on motorcycles. The farm or ranch that the B&B is part of is FANTASTIC. I read some of the reviews before going and they are all about accurate. This place probably isn't for everyone but it suited us nicely. The jacuzzi hot-tub/bath tub in the bed room was sort of awkward but hey If I was 25 years younger and a bit more svelte, I'd of enjoyed it. Also, the television in the room could be upgraded. All in all, no real complaints or negatives. Keep up the good work.

Recently stayed in the 1800's Log Cabin with my in-laws after staying there several years ago. Some substantial upgrades had been made (coffee pot, refrig, microwave, TV, wifi) which we enjoyed. It seemed that the towels had not been replaced in several years as they were frayed. Matt and wife have cute 1-year-old twins. Just to consider, if you are in the Log Cabin, which is attached to the office, you can hear everything going on, laughing, crying, telephone calls, etc. The breakfasts were very good. I could have done without the breakfast conversation touting other products that are sold by the owners. Overall, a nice visit.

Thanks so much for noticing the substantial upgrades to the Log Cabin. Here at the Full Moon Inn, we do have a large number of quality egyptian cotton towels that are not just run of the mill scratchy hotel towels. These towels tend to show wear much quicker than cheap cotton blends, but they are far more comfortable to use. I'll make sure that our cleaning team goes through all the towels, so that the frayed ones are all placed into "retirement". We want people to enjoy every aspect of their stay, even their towels!!

The Log cabin IS connected to the main house. Our office connects the Log Cabin to the house. This is extremely apparent, especially if a guest has stayed with us before. We try to be EXTREMELY careful and quiet, as to cause no disturbances for guests, but occasionally, the babies will laugh as they crawl into the office to come see us.

Full Moon Inn does not sell other products. We will remove the brochures that were displayed for a local business and apologize that they brochures were bothersome.

My husband and I made reservations at the Full Moon and were guided by the pictures that were used to represent this place. As it turned out, the Peach Tree Room was in the back of the property and was literally a "shed". (See attached photo). Outside of our room, the view consisted of two public restrooms, and a dumpster.

We were very disappointed to say the least, and asked the owner if we could stay only one night, or be transferred to another room on the property. She quickly reminded us that we were locked into a 10 day cancellation policy, and stated that no other rooms were available. In the midst of all of this, she was promoting her line of cosmetic products!!

The only thing positive about this particular room at the Inn was a comfortable bed and it was clean!

Thanks so much for your compliment that the Peach room is CLEAN and that the bed was COMFORTABLE. We work very hard to make our guests' stay comfortable and pleasant.

It's unfortunate that this couple booked their room with a third party site and not directly with us. When we book the Peach Room over the phone, we always explain every detail. The Peach Room is located behind the Cottage. It was an addition to the original property due to demand. When you are booking directly with a B&B owner you get much more information about the property than online photos alone.

I was unable to transfer this couple to another room as I am full every weekend, and there are no extra rooms to transfer someone into. We do have a 10 day cancellation policy that is spelled out from the beginning. I assured the guests that they had the full use of the entire property and could relax in any space that they deemed worthy. The two "public restrooms" located near the Peach Room are used only when we host large events, where the entire "event" is using our property. That way other guests are not bothered by the restrooms.

We are very apologetic that this couple did not have a 100% positive experience. I'd also like to add that the Full Moon in does not sell a line of cosmetic products.

We stayed at the Full Moon with another couple in the log cabin as this is an ideal set up for 2 couples as one bed is upstairs and one is on the main floor. There is only one bathroom to share, but it worked out fine. The front porch was very cozy with 4 rocking chairs. Breakfast was served at 9 every day, and your food was served immediately. After reading all the rave reviews about the breakfast, I was a little disappointed in this part of our stay. Fresh fruit and muffins would have been a nice addition. Both days there was not much variation on the menu. Would I return here?
Probably, because of it's close proximity to the Luchenbach Dance Hall.

Thanks so much for your positive comments. Our Breakfast Menu is listed extensively on our website. The rotating menu is: pancakes, bacon, and an egg dish called Eggs Luckenbach, and the other menu is french toast, sausage, and Eggs Luckenbach. We also provide gluten free items and vegan items at guests' special request.

I would love to include muffins and unlimited fruit in our menu, however, offering both a hot breakfast AND a cold breakfast would result in a huge amount of food waste. We have been doing breakfast this way for the last 21 years, and I think we have perfected it, and regret that you did not find it satisfactory to your needs.

You loved our location though, so hopefully we will see you again, safe travels!
