“True Bed and Breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2010

We were only able to stay at the Yellow House one night, but we thoroughly enjoyed our all too short stay. We stayed in the Purple Cottage, and everything about it was very nice and new. The bed was exceptionally comfortable. All of the amenities were VERY nice. Cathy and Brian both seem to have found their calling as innkeepers. There so many little things, such as a bar in the shower to sit on or use for shaving a leg, a Keurig coffee maker with multiple choices of K-cups, bottled water in the fridge, makeup remover towelettes in the bathroom, etc., that made this place and our stay so wonderful. Cathy and Brian were exceptionally kind and respectful of our privacy. I didn't have the breakfast, but my husband said it was delicious. The only slight dent in the experience was the air conditioner/heater. It was a wall heater hung above the bed with a remote control. We couldn't figure out how to turn it off or on without setting a timer. By the time we tried to use it and realized our predicament, it was already 9:45 and we didn't feel right calling Cathy so late in the evening. We are in our late 20's/30's, reasonably tech savvy, but we weren't able to figure out the AC/heater without a manual (there wasn't one around), or some explanation. I'm sure if we had stayed another night we would have managed to figure it out on our own (Cathy would have undoubtedly come and shown us had we asked), but unfortunately it was just one of those things. So, my recommendation to anyone considering staying here would be to go, it's an excellent place to stay, and worth the money. However, you might ask Cathy or Brian for a little explanation on how to use the heater before the sun sets, especially if technology isn't your thing.

The Yellow House certainly sets itself apart from other B&B's with great service, clean rooms, premium bedding and towels and an abundance of "homey" touches like free sodas and snacks. The property itself is set on a fantastic piece of land - a short distance from the "action" in Salado but very worth it for the quiet, country feel. The owners were helpful, friendly and professional and the breakfast was OUT of this world. We would definitely stay here again.

Cathy & Brian Harris are amazing hosts.
A group of nine of the ladies in my family stayed here last weekend for our annual 'Girls Retreat'. Cathy went out of her way to make us comfortable and we were incredibly comfortable. We rented out all of her rooms and we got a little loud (laughing, dancing, playing) - but somehow we didn't scare them off. ;-)

Brian lit the fire pit for us one evening and we sat around the fire in the courtyard talking for hours. He even brought out his telescope and let some of the ladies take a gander at the heavens. The sky was full of vivid stars. It was amazing.

The breakfasts were fantastic with a breakfast quiche, flaky biscuits, fresh fruit and the most amazing bacon the first morning and thick slices of homemade french toast with fresh strawberries, banana, pineapple and cream the next. There was freshly sqeezed OJ and their very own honey from their very own bees each morning.

This could definetely make a most romantic weekend getaway or a perfect setting for a small family reunion. The five acres are beautiful with little clearings where you can read a book or pretty little paths to hike. The trees were changing when we were there and it only added to the beauty of the place.

Would I recommend the Yellow House B&B to friends? Most definetely! In fact, I would love to go back again myself.

PS
I didn't even touch on the incredibly cute country decor... My mom & I stayed in the Stars and Hearts room. Our beds were so comfortable we never wanted to get out of them. Nice hot showers and every amenity. The porch was a great gathering place but we also liked the living room. The painted wood floors are just beautiful... The dining room was adorable too - so sunny and inviting. I wish my house were this cute - I'd never leave...

Yellow House B & B is a real gem in Salado, Texas. This was my first trip to Salado and first time at the Yellow House. I was more than impressed with both Salado and this B & B. Innkeepers Cathy and Dennis have gone that extra mile to make certain their guests have the best of everything and it shows!

We stayed in the Primrose room for 2 nights and it was better than I had ever expected. First class linens, towels, furnishings, decor and absolutely spotless as was every room in this B & B. I checked them all out!

Breakfast was delicious. First morning we had fresh fruit, a generous portion of French Toast with an apple/cinnamon topping that was to die for and bacon on the side. Second morning was a tasty breakfast quiche, homemade biscuits and the Yellow House's honey from their very own beehives. What a treat that was.

There is always soft drinks, snacks, candy, teas and gourmet coffees to enjoy any time of the day or night. Cathy makes her yummy home made cookies for everyone to enjoy in the afternoons.

I cannot say enough good things about this B & B or Innkeepers Cathy and Brian. They make you feel like they have known you forever and that you are part of their home from the beginning.

We are going back in October and I cannot wait.

I loved how the house was decorated, the colors were matched perfectly. Everything was clean and fresh. I only stayed for one night but wished I could have stayed a second. Breakfast and snacks were excellent. The Host's could not have been more accommodating, anything you needed they were more than happy to get for you. Definitely the most enjoyable B&B I have ever been to.

The Yellow House was absolutely wonderful, very clean, beautiful and convenient.

The room I shared was huge and decorated so precious.

The B&B is very convenient to downtown Salado, but was so much better than staying downtown. It was so peaceful and the view was just beautiful. Had a covered porch complete with rocking chairs and a table and chairs...loved sitting out there and enjoying the quiet.

The homemade cookies were delicious and an added bonus to staying there. Also, the breakfast was absolutely wonderful...even had fresh honey from their bee hives.

Definintely will stay there again!
