We had a great stay at Granny Lou's. We felt like we made some new friends in the innkeeper and chef there. The breakfast was way more than we expected...the works with bacon & sausage! We felt like they accommodated our wishes very well. The only downside, and this was minimal, there is some slight road noise in the front room as it's on a main street in Bonham. Not enough to really disturb, but if you like to sleep in, ask for a room on the back side of the house. And another great thing...checkout is 12:00 noon and we asked for breakfast at 11:00 am...no problem! So no need to scramble awake and get down to breakfast. They will ask you when you want it! Loved that! Plus the grounds, patio area and old barn are beautiful. We will definitely stay there again and are considering it for a family member's wedding venue. It's really set up for wedding parties as it has a 3 bedroom cottage and a one bedroom cottage also on the grounds.

I stayed in the Secret Garden Cottage so it was nice and quiet. It has its own deck with a lounge and a small table with chairs. I highly recommend Granny Lou's.

Stunning victorian, absolute eye candy and comfortable too. Nooks and crannies and decorated everywhere. A wonderful restoration. Jay was a kind and friendly host. Our best wishes to them in their next chapter!

This B&B is based in a stunning historical home, with beautiful interior and exterior features. Each room is themed, and decorated accordingly! The "innkeepers" are incredibly friendly and accommodating, and even join you for meals if you like! With limited options for in-town lodgings in this area, the competitive pricing and overall quality of the stay here makes repeat reservations an obvious choice!

I have been traveling weekly to this location and always stay at this B&B. The owners are caring and courteous. The breakfast is NOT just continental but a full hot breakfast. Wonderful.

I surprised my wife by planning our Anniversary weekend that included a night at Granny Lou's. We had golfed on the day of our arrival and were a bit wiped out from the Texas heat. We arrived late afternoon and my wife went straight up and laid down. We stayed in the Somewhere In Time room and from the first moment it was a cool, comfortable haven. She fell in love with our room and immediately started planning a return trip when it wasn’t such hot weather. Jay and Tracy are gracious hosts, breakfast and conversation was delightful. I would recommend Granny Lou's to anyone who want a retreat from the city. Visit the nearby Bonham State Park for a swim or a picnic. Also there is a Trade Days flea market the weekend before the 2nd Monday each month.
