I cannot say enough wonderful things about this B&B! My wife and I just got married here and we were blown away from the moment we arrived. The property is on top of a hill overlooking a large expansive field (complete with horses and donkeys and cows roaming around!). Everything was so gorgeous and Pamela was such an amazing host. We had reserved one of the smaller rooms but because we were the only ones there Pamela upgraded us to the Garden Room, which was very spacious and had windows on three of the four walls. If you do decide to get married here there are multiple areas to have the ceremony and Pamela was so accommodating to make sure that we were satisfied with our experience. Breakfast was amazing and Pamela also makes a fantastic liquor! We cannot wait to go back for our anniversary!

We were so lucky to find this treasure. On vacation we found out that the place we were going to stay had closed. One of the Park Rangers recommended Murski B & B and we will be forever thankful. Pamela was able to accommodate on short notice. The room was spacious, the bed perfect and the breakfast was over the top. She was able to accommodate a gluten free breakfast without any hesitation. We loved the location...away frrom the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Nice spa (hot tub). The perfect place for a nice get away!

I decided to get away for the weekend from my hectic life in Houston and chose Murski Homestead based on online reviews. The stay in real-life far surpass the online reviews or photos! It was so refreshing to be staying amongst such beautiful Texas nature and animals, situated on many rolling acres with cattle, birds, etc. in a well-cared for habitat. The ambiance is peaceful, the air is clean, and the amenities are of high, quality standards - thanks to the innkeepers' thoughtful design and smartly appointed antique family home, grounds, and furniture throughout the guest residence. Pamela's cooking and menu selections are absolutely fabulous - and the homemade liqueur and local chocolates in the rooms are the icing on the (homemade) cake! While in Brenham, I took in a play at Unity Theater, which was outstanding, as well as explored some historical places downtown and visited the Lavender Farm in Chappell Hill. This Brenham experience was perfect for me, with all the creature comforts of home, high attention to hospitality and luxury in the country by the innkeepers, and artistic and historical culture much appreciated by the community.

My husband surprised me with a weekend at the Murski B&B and we had a wonderful, relaxing time. We took a private cooking class with Pamela which was so fun and everything tasted fabulous! She really enjoyed spending the time with us. We even started off with a champagne cocktail and a bottle of wine with our lunch. The room was cozy, the bed comfortable and the in-room breakfast was delicious. We found several events going on in town and the surrounding towns to keep us busy for the weekend yet still take it easy and relax. Would love to come back again!

I surprised my wife with a two-day getaway at the Murski Homestead and we loved it. I read many reviews prior to selecting this B&B and the experience still surpassed my high expectations. Pam is a very gracious host and wasted no time taking us under her wing to point out what we needed to know for our stay as well as suggesting many places of interest in the surrounding area. We loved the food that Pam prepared and loved the fact we could eat whenever we wanted on our own schedule. The parfaits made excellent desserts! We were only there last week, but I already want to go back.

We stayed here August 8-10. It was a spontaneous getaway for my husband and I and a PERFECT retreat! The first night we never left the front porch. We brought our own picnic and just enjoyed the sunset and cool breeze from the hilltop location. When we decided to retire, the bed was cool and comfortable with luscious linens and a down comforter. Our breakfast the next morning was delicious...fresh pineapple and orange juice, an egg pie and cinnamon coffee cake. We enjoyed every bite! We visited the lavender farm, wineries, the diner at the municipal airport and lots of shops around town. We ate at Volare's and Must Be Heaven while we were there. All I can say is...WE WILL BE BACK.

Such a relaxing weekend. We stayed in the Sage Room and it was perfect. The sheet were extremely soft, bed comfortable, tons of pillows. I love the reading nook in the corner, the electric fireplace, the bath and homemade complimentary liquor. I'm already bragging about this B&B, it was the first my husband had ever stayed at and we might not ever go back to hotels if he thinks they will all be like this one. They had puzzles, board games, cards, a Jacuzzi, horses, donkeys, cows and a beautiful property tons of places to just sit and enjoy the view. The owners are what sold this to us, they are so sweet, gave us recommendations and constantly asking if we needed anything and gave us some extra desserts. Such a sweet couple and Pamela is an AMAZING cook. She would make breakfast the day before and have put it in the refrigerator for us to have whenever we woke up the next day in the comfort of our rooms with fresh fruit and juice. Relaxing escape. Highly recommend.

Wonderful place to unwind and unplug. Pam was a wonderful hostess. She was very knowledge about events in the area. We watched several fireworks show from the front porch from the area around the B&B. The outdoor sitting area was very inviting and comfortable to sit and enjoy the breeze. Spec (cat) and Jez (dog) were glad to accommodate us in scratching their ears and heads as we kicked back in the lounge chairs. Will come again and recommend to our friends.

My husband and I just spent three days at the Murski Homestead. Our room was perfect, welcoming with the king size bed (with great pillows), modern amenities such as wifi (needed to download my books), and beautifully decorated. We had a snack prepared for us in our room when we arrived and fresh juice in the refrigerator. Pamela welcomed us, and gave us the tour and made sure that we were comfortable, then left us to relax.Our room, the Lavender Room, had a private porch that we really enjoyed. We had breakfast on the porch each day and we were serenaded by so many birds. Pamela's meals are amazing and we are planning to return for a cooking class. We would highly recommend Murski's Homestead to anyone.

As you discovered, the Lavender Rooms private porch is a very special spot and enjoying your breakfast there is one of the things we highly recommend (if you enjoy the outdoors). We are looking forward to your return visit and hosting you for one of our cooking classes!

Everything went above and beyond my expectations. We stayed in the sage room in mid-April of 2014. When we arrived Pamela, gave us a nice little tour and gave us a map of good places to eat dinner that night. The bed was like sleeping on a big comfy cloud. The bathroom was big and roomy and the antique claw foot tub was such a nice touch and gave a lovely bath. We paid a little extra to have breakfast in our suite that morning. The breakfast blew us away. SO tasty. All in all it was amazing. We will be going back and if you are ever in the area, you should totally check this place out.
