10 year anniversary

5 on March 14, 2014

This B &B truly exceeded our expectations! We had a wonderful time. The service was amazing and the food was absolutely delicious! The owners are so detail oriented. We felt like royalty!


THE place to stay

5 on October 12, 2013

We used Bonham, TX as our 'launching point' to the local area. Steve & Karen, proprietors, are a wonderful, service-oriented couple. Their idea of service was to exceed our expectations. The breakfast was wonderful. The rooms well decorated. It was like staying in a Victorian museum (so much to see, discuss and wonder).


Felt Like Home

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful evening hosted by Karen and Steve. The welcome was sincere. Enjoyed the tour of the home and hearing the history. The food was gourmet quality and the music and laughter we shared was all bonus. The ride in the Model A the next morning after an exceptional breakfast (loved the cinnamon rolls) was a blast. We will be going back.


Bed and Breakfast Review

5 on July 24, 2013

Enjoyed our stay at The Carleton House. The house is decorated and restored to the time period. Our room and bathroom were adjourning which we really liked. Our host and hostess were friendly and welcoming. Our breakfast was excellent! Would definitely return to this bed and breakfast.
