“These Guys Get It!”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

I've been travelling for 40 years and I've tried to stay in B&B's, small hotels, and inns as much as possible. Trust me I've stayed in some badly run B&B's in my years; Keepers that just didn't seem to enjoy their work. Not Tom and Richard. They offerred a clean comfortable house without the laundry list of "rules", intelligent conversation on the porch in the evenings, good recommendations for restaurants, a filling breakfast and of course Toby the Wonder Dog! We stayed in the Dynasty suite which was spacious, had a Mission-style 4-Poster bed, and provided ready access to the refrigerator in the kitchen. The house is on a quiet residential street with just about every Museum you'd want to visit within a mile radius. We stayed 4 nights but they flew by quickly...just like when staying with good friends.

Room Tip: Dynasty Suite is the best!

My friend and I stayed here for a night while we were in town for a concert. We love to stay at B&Bs when we go away, and we were not disappointed. Tom was friendly and welcoming and made us fantastic omletes in the morning. The house is cute and our bed was really comfortable. A bonus for us was we were the only guests I think and we got to meet Tom and Rick's adorable dog. It's really close to tons of great restaurants, shopping, etc.

Stayed once more at this charming B&B for 7 nights early October, and as before cannot fault the experience. The owners Tom & Rick are most welcoming and provide a more than comfortable stay with an equally adequete breakfast.
In a very interesting part of the city, and easily accessable to the many bars and restaurants in this neighbourhood of Montrose.
The decor is an eclectic mix of antiques, and family heirlooms, that certainly catch the eye and make for an interesting stay, added to by the knowledge of Tom who appears to be able to tell a tale about most of the items.
Will certainly be staying there again next year.

This charming property is full of interest and character, and owned and managed by 2 charming guys, who cannot do enough to make your stay comfortable. It has a wealth of facinating antiques and curios around the house, that Tom the co owner can tell a tale about them all. The breakfast is more than adequete, with a good assortment of cereals followed by something hot. I stayed in the Dynasty suite which is in the main house with easy access to th fridge for chilled water bottles. The outside porch with it's rocking chairs is a comfortable place to sit and pass an hour or two away, watching the world go by. The property is located in the museum district of Houston which is a very pleasant part of this big city. It's mvery green and tree lined with many interesting other properties and an abundance of museums and galleries to chose from. To stay at Palme on West Main is like stayingb with friends, and I will have no hesitation in returning again on my next family visit to Houston

Room Tip: Speak to Tom "Mine Host"
