“Grace and Charm”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2008

I have stayed at Belle Oaks several times and have thoroughly enjoyed my visit each time. The house is beautiful and the owners welcoming and fun to be around. Each room has beautiful appointments, wonderful linens, the kind of bed you can pile up in and spend the day and private bath.
Outside, there are beautiful grounds including a reflecting pond and a sport pool. One of the best features is a wrap around porch and veranda upstairs. On the side is an enormous Pecan tree that affords shade while you relax and enjoy a drink.
Breakfast is served each morning and the house specialties are delicious.
Travellers to central Texas should definitely make Belle Oaks a destination, not just a place to stay!

A truly memorable experience in our lives was a recent visit to Belle Oaks Inn located in Gonzales. TX. We feel so fortunate to have discovered this lovely home during a trip through the area. In need of a night's rest, we made enquiries in a neighboring town and were directed to Gonzales and Belle Oaks. Our night's stay turned into two. What a wonderful, restful time we had.
While visiting with the owners, we learned that the plantation-style mansion was built in 1912 and had recently been restored by them. I would like to compliment them on their gracious hospitality and the exquisite restoration of this wonderful old home. The extensive, beautifully landscaped grounds feature a swimming pool, lovely flower gardens and a reflecting pond all nestled under massive live oak and pecan trees.
We found the guest rooms to have all the amenities such as a tv/vcr and coffee maker, wonderful linens, down comforters and pillows and each has a private bath with luxurious towels and a selection of fine soaps and shampoos. The whole house is decorated with fine antiques and many of the rooms have great old fireplaces.
Much of our time was sitting on one or another of the porches and verandas with a cool drink in our hands. just soaking up the atmosphere. At 4 o'clock in the afternoon we were treated to a concert that came drifting through the trees from the bell tower of the nearby courthouse.
For breakfast we had the specialties of the Inn, Pecan Orange Bread and Southern Brunch Egg Casserole. As if this was not enough, they also had an assortment of fresh fruits and juices, cold or hot cereals and gourmet coffees and teas. Yum!!
We enjoyed poking around in some very nice antique shops in Gonzales and the area features many sites of early Texas historical events.
If you long to be touched with a flavor of the "Old South", its hospitality and restful ambiance, then Belle Oaks Inn will certainly satisfy. We can't wait to go back!!

We loved our stay at Belle Oaks. It was so peaceful and relaxing. The house was beautiful and so elegant. The grounds were superb. All the small details through out the house were wonderfully welcomed. Breakfast was grade A. All the baked good were so deliciously homemade. I loved everything about it. Everything about our stay was absolutely wonderful.

We began the first leg of our trip down the Texas Independence Trail in Gonzales last Spring Break and what a treat it was to spend our first night at Belle Oaks Inn! As owners of a B&B, we recognize quality and attention to detail and Belle Oaks has all of the bases covered! Our rooms were luxuriously furnished with beautiful antiques, fine linens and lots of extra touches not often found in run-of-the-mill B&Bs. The inviting grounds are lush and parklike...just the place for a relaxing stroll or a wedding fit for Scarlett. We enjoyed our coffee on the front porch with one of the owners, Richard, who is a true Texas cowboy and heliocopter pilot. He entertained us with tales of clearing the last great cattle ranches of South Texas of their herds of wild cattle. His father has written a book about that bit of Texas history and we recommend it as well. Treat yourself to a stay at Belle Oaks and discover the charm and history of Gonzales!
