Just amazing...

5 on July 29, 2016

Words can't even begin to describe what this B&B did for my marriage. We needed it so bad. Between the comfy, soft sheets, the gorgeous huge bathroom where we were both able to relax in a hot bath, the delicious homemade alcoholic fruit punch left in the fridge and fresh cream for coffee, the AMAZINGGGG breakfast that was hand delivered by the owners, sitting under huge bright stars in a perfect temperature hot tub, I thought I died and went to heaven. My husband and I enjoyed our trip so so much. I can't even describe what this place is like. It's literally heaven on earth. I wish we could of stayed a week at this place. It was truly amazing. The owners are SO friendly and kind. And I can't even say enough about the property. It's so rustic and Texas. It's naturally beautiful and you can tell that they spend SO much time on every detail. It's amazing, beautifully perfect bed and breakfast. We can not wait to go back. Best getaway we've ever had!!

Don and Deb of the Star of Texas were absolutely incredible hosts.

Thank you so very much and best wishes for your wonderful business!

Perfect Honeymoon

5 on June 23, 2016

The Star of Texas B&B was exactly what we had imagined it would be... Small, tranquil and private. This piece of heaven on Earth is perfect for elopements and romantic get aways and is sure to make this moment in time for couples one that will never be forgotten. The breakfasts are amazing! They are truly edible works of art! I read in a previous review that Don and Deb are the "invisible inn keepers" and they really live up to that name. They are there to greet you with huge smiles and make your privacy and comfort their top priority. I am so grateful that we were able to find this place and have the experiences that we did at the Star Of Texas. We will definitely be back, and will tell everyone who wants the best romantic getaway to celebrate love, life, and each other.

Innkeeper Response
Oh wow, you made me cry on this review. Thanks so much and so so glad that you all were so pleased with your stay and do hope to have you back again. deb
