The room was comfortable and cool. Breakfast was amazing and the visitation with the other guest at the breakfast table was inspiring. What a wonderful time.

My husband and his friend booked a skydive in nearby Whitewright, TX. I was looking for a place to stay that was close to Whitewright, since we live over 2 hours away. Granny Lou's looked so charming and romantic online, I just had to book it! All four of us stayed here (DH, me, and our two friends) and we had the BEST time! The Red River room was so Victorian looking and so comfortable - and the bathroom was huge! Jenniffer was so attentive and accommodating and friendly! I felt like I had made a new friend by the time we left. The wine, cheese, snacks, and homemade cookies were amazing. Although I was unable to eat breakfast due to a migraine (which I get frequently - no fault of Jenn's - lol), my companions said breakfast was delicious. I find myself looking for excuses to go back to this area and stay here again! Hopefully, we will be able to stay longer and explore the local antique shops downtown. I highly recommend Granny Lou's!

There's no better place to stay in probably all of Fannin County. Jen "Granny Lou" Self is a fantastic and friendly host who does her utmost to ensure that your stay in comfortable and relaxing. She knows a great deal about the history of this unique Victorian home and the town, too, plus what's good to know about the here and now, including places to check out and restaurants to eat at while in town. If you stay somewhere else, you are missing out on experiencing Bonham.

This was our 3rd stay at Granny Lou's. It just gets better every time. The rooms are all unique and very comfortable, breakfast was filling and delicious and our host Jennifer Self was most gracious. Even though we weren't the only guest, it certainly felt like it. Coming in after our fist day out, cookies and wine greeted us. On night 2, Jennifer and 2 other guests were on the patio sipping wine and chatting. We joined in for a while. Jennifer is adding another guest cottage out back that looks to be most comfortable and accommodating. All in all, it was a great stay. I highly recommend Granny Lou's to anyone looking for a home like experience in Bohnham.
