We just returned home after spending a weekend in Granbury, and we loved staying at this b&b. Our room was in Angel House (which is on the same property as Arbor House), and the room was not anything over-the-top special as far as b&b rooms go, but it was very comfortable and we appreciated the amenities that are common in b&b's - fresh flowers on the night table, complimentary snacks and drinks, bath robes, nice soaps and lotions, etc. The best parts were probably the host and the location. The host made sure we knew where to go and what to do, but she also wasn't nosy and had a very natural ability to make people feel welcome. She made sure we had snacks and drinks available (including a delicious buttermilk pie), and there was a full kitchen available in our house. The location was wonderful, only a few blocks from the square, and we hardly drove at all while we were there. The breakfasts were very good - both days we had a small fresh fruit dish, muffins, and juice/coffee/tea. The first day's main dish was a breakfast casserole and the second day was raspberry french toast and breakfast sausage filled with cheese. The property had nice landscaping and there were lots of areas where you could sit outside, including a swing out front where you could see the lake. If I had to nitpick and find things that people might not like as much, it would probably be that the house isn't old and historic, although it is built in that style. Also, Lake Granbury isn't that impressive, and the B&B is across a busy street from the lake, so you can't see it that well from Angel House. Overall, I thought it was a great choice for us, and we would stay there again if we go back to Granbury.
