We didn't want to leave!!!

5 on August 14, 2014

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.


Beyond 5 Stars

5 on August 11, 2014

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.

The Murski Experience

4.4 on June 23, 2014

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.

Innkeeper Response
We greatly appreciate your taking the time to post a review and for all the compliments given. 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!


Wonderful Experience

5 on April 22, 2014

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.


We are forever spoiled!

This was our first stay at a B&B and I think we're forever spoiled. The food was outstanding. We enjoyed our private porch that had a perpetual cool breeze and a deliciosus batch of cookies awaiting us. Highly recommended!!!

Battery Recharge

In one swift hour My wife and I went from the suburban/urban scramble to quiet bliss. This all happened when we left home and ended up at Pamela's truly wonderful, romantic, charming slice of heaven with a Texas flare.The Rosemary room with all her touches, the surrounding farm land and the five star perks that Pamela provides make for a most memorable get away so close to home. WE WILL GO BACK. do not forget the results of her cooking skills are delicious! Thank you Pamela for a wonderful time. as uncle Jed would say " YALL COME BACK NOW; YA HEAR.


Wonderful!

My husband and I just spent the weekend at Murski Homestead to celebrate our anniversary. We had a wonderful time! Pamela and Tom were wonderful hosts - we enjoyed getting to know them both. The room was lovely, the amenities were great (there were so many lovely touches and details), the grounds are beautiful, and the breakfasts were spectacular!! We got breakfast in bed one morning and we both agreed it was the BEST breakfast we've ever had. Pamela is a spectacular cook. To cap off the experience, we had a private cooking lesson with Pamela and prepared a multi-course meal with her (planned by Pamela just for us). We had so much fun. Pamela is a great teacher - we learned a lot and ended the time eating the fruits of our labor, which, thanks to Pamela were DELICIOUS! We highly recommend Murski B&B for a relaxing weekend.

Wow! What a Weekend!

5 on November 04, 2013

Just got back to San Antonio with wonderful memories of our stay at Murski Homestead B&B. Just what we were looking for in a place to stay in Brenham while there for the Antique Rose Emporium Fall Festival. Everything about the B&B was great, from the charming room to the yummy food. And of course we appreciated the lovely gardens surrounding the grounds of the old home. The attention to detail that Pamela and Tom put into running the place is impressive. Thanks for the memories, we'll be back in the spring for the wildflower show!


Relaxing get away

Enjoyable stay for my husband and I. The bed was extremely comfortable with luxury linens and a king-sized mattress that made me feel like a queen. The room was clean and large with a personal air unit to control the temp and private deck. We also had access to a large porch with a swing or chairs to watch the sunset. The windows had blackout curtains and the bath had special touches of homemade lavender soap and specialty shampoo and lotion. Breakfast was a made to order omelet with fruit and sweetbread with juice and a variety of coffee or tea. The omelets are placed in the private refrigerator in your room to be reheated at your convenience in the morning. We enjoyed ours on the porch with a soft breeze that made even a Texas August morning comfortable.

Innkeeper Response
