It was a last minute trip and I just grabbed the first thing I saw that was close. Wow! I was lucky because the Home and the properties and management were exceptional. This will become our first choice when going back to South Texas. Can’t wait to try the other homes out.
We stayed here for a weekend recently while taking an upholstery class at a local antique furniture shop. Loved the location. It was near everything in town. The bed was comfortable and the pillows were as well. Thought I would miss not having a shower in the bathroom but the oversized claw foot tub more than made up for it. We would definitely stay here again!
We stayed in the retreat last night and we absolutely loved it!!!!! Very clean, beautiful scenery, amazing hot tub and great for our weekend alone without our children. We have decided this will be our getaway from now on when we need to reconnect within our marriage! Just off the beaten path but close enough to enjoy a night out and come here afterward and unwind. The price is perfect for all the accommodations you receive. Didn’t even have to leave for breakfast as there was stuff for us to cook and take a relaxing morning. Checkout time is noon which is perfect so you aren’t rushing around after a late night. Will be coming back in the very near future and can’t wait!!!!!
Scenic Hills was a great place to go for our 40th anniversary. It’s very secluded and quiet. I know that there were other people staying in some of the other cabins. We spent two nights in the Spa cabin it was extremely nice and clean ...beautiful on the inside and out. My wife even said that she could live in a place like that. I know I could. Out on the front porch they have a hot tub and a porch swing. It also has a nice view. They even put some breakfast items in the refrigerator so you can cook up some breakfast. You can bring your own groceries and cook your food there..the cabins have a full kitchen or you can run in to Brenham for lunch or dinner. They also have a propane gas grill outside. All in all it’s a great place to get away. We are definitely going back to this place.
It was a fantastic stay, the place was spotless and the porch with rocking chairs made you not want to leave! The hot tub was great and we loved the tin roof so when it rained we sat on the porch and listened to the rain hit the tin roof. It was a great experience and we will definitely be back for the comfort ,scenery and peace we so enjoyed. Recommend it highly.
Loved the sweet pups, Garth and Vera! Cowboy the horse was so sweet! I saw the donkeys at a distance, but missed seeing them up close & personal like my husband did! The stars at night were big and bright!! Thanks, Kiki, for the great breakfast! Hope to come again!
Loved the peace and quiet. It was exactly what we needed. Loved sitting on the balcony listening to the birds and the cows in the distance. The room was clean and comfortable. It was a very relaxing time. We will be returning in the future.
Scenic hills is amazing. Beautiful, well maintained property, great views and a fantastic deal! Our cabin was clean and comfortable, the fridge was well stocked with breakfast staples, the bed was to die for, the walk in shower was fantastic. We’ll be going back, and with such a reasonable drive from Houston it’s not a terrible burden to get away more often.
We had an amazing experience at the homestead cabin. The spa was very relaxing. Sitting on the porch rocking chairs watching the cows eat or just enjoying the scenery was a peaceful experience. The cabin was clean and they gave us our privacy. I would definitely love to come back again.
My husband and I really enjoyed staying at this bed and breakfast. We attended parent weekend at Texas A&M University and found this to be a quaint place to stay and just 15-20 minutes away from College Station. We loved it!
We had a wonderfu weekend getaway at the Red Velvet Inn for our anniversary. The room was spacious and clean. There were plenty of living/searing areas in common rooms, too, and we enjoyed sitting on the patio before the weather turned chilly. We enjoyed the refrigerator in our room as well as the kitchen refrigerator stocked with water and sodas. My husband jokingly asked if red velvet cupcakes would be available, and upon checking in we found red velvet cookies in our room!
This amazing spot has so many positives that it's going to be hard to fit them into a review. Organizing & booking was easy. The place was even better than described. The house is beautifully decorated, thoughtfully appointed and a perfect combination of rustic and modern. We loved meeting the charming, helpful and kind owner (Pamela) and found her to be the type of host everyone wishes for: helpful, respectful, unobtrusive and genuinely a sweet person. She had left some delicious homemade lemon yogurt loaf for us, and when we left, packaged up the rest for us to take on the road because we had raved about it! The bed was super comfortable, bathroom was complete with all necessities (including a magnifying mirror!). I especially LOVED the porch with the comfortable places to relax while listening to the waterfall and watching the horses and cows around us. It was a delightful getaway, and we would strongly recommend it to friends and family!
My wife and I celebrated our 8th year now, and we look for out of the way places to enjoy a little of the country life. The Spa Cabin we stayed in was excellent and very roomy. The view was very nice with the rolling hills and trees and birds. All I can say is if you need to get away from the city life and relax without any of the usual distractions, this is the place to go. :)
We just got home from celebrating our second anniversary, and we both agree that the Murski Homestead was a perfect choice. Just a short drive from our home in the Clear Lake area, it still seemed a world away from our daily lives of work and more work! Our stay was in the Hunt Room — a beautifully updated retreat with a private patio and the most comfortable bed ever. It was the best of both worlds with luxury and the beauty and charm of waking up to see sweet little calves and donkeys on Brenham’s beautiful land. It’s a gorgeous area...we had a great time at Washington-On-The-Brazos State Park, excelllent food at BT Longhorn, and then pure relaxation at Murski Homestead. Pamela was so easy to schedule with and so accommodating that our anniversary felt very special and EASY. Thank you!
We recently spent a wonderful 2 nights at the Red Velvet and enjoyed it very much. The kitchen was extremely well appointed and aside from the trains have nothing adverse to say. Definitely would stay again if we find ourselves in that area.
We stayed this past weekend for two nights in the Grand Spa. The property was well kept, cabin was clean, and it was probably the most relaxful weekend my wife and I have had in the last 5 years. We were able to cook onsite with a full kitchen with all utensils. Additionally the breakfast items that were placed in the fridge for us were great. I highly recommend this place.
Was a wonderful place to get away from the big city. Very clean, comfortable bed and pillows, massage table, homemade pecan muffins and all of the fixings for a nice breakfast in the am. Nice paths to walk around and a beautiful meadow that is perfect for star gazing. Close enough to surrounding towns for fun activities and meals. We’ll be back soon!
I used to travel for a living. Internationally and in North America there are few places I'm not familiar with. I KNOW about accommodations! The quiet and secluded property is wonderful. It was a romantic setting. They have paid attention to detail. My wife and I have never spent so much wonderful time doing so little. Exactly what was needed.
Enjoyed every second of our time at the Homestead Cabin. Beautiful scenery and very relaxing. Loved the fact we had breakfast items waiting in our fridge for us to enjoy making together. We finished off each night by relaxing in the hot tub and watching the cows graze. Highly recommend this etbeautiful get away for anyone needing a break from everyday stress. My wife and I spent the time reconnecting with each other.
This bed and breakfast experience was incredible. It had a cozy feeling with that laid back country charm that I've been missing for a while. The establishment is beautiful, super clean, and gives you a "home away from home" feel that I have never gotten from any other hotel. The inn is definitely on my list of go to places from now on. I highly recommend it.
This trip was awesome. It was relaxing, it was hometown, it was great. It gave a great hotel feel with an at-home ambiance I’ve never felt before. Denise was spectacular and provided the warmth and service I needed. I highly recommend and will be back myself soon.
