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

Piece of Heaven

5 on June 14, 2016

Star of Texas Bed & Breakfast was everything we anticipated and more. We had the most relaxing time and felt very comfortable while there. Deb and Don certainly know how to make you feel welcome. The fresh breakfast was delicious and all their recommendations of in town restaurants were excellent as well. We eloped during our stay and Don and Deb really know how to make your day special. Thank you so much, I have recommended Star of Texas to all my friends and family and we look forward to coming back in the future!

Sweetest elopement

5 on May 06, 2016

We had the most perfect elopement weekend! I couldn't have asked for more. Starting each morning with a delicious homemade breakfast and ending the day with a soak in our private hot tub! I can't wait to return

Innkeeper Response
We are so happy that it truly was the perfect elopement for you, and nothing better than a nightly soak in the hot tub under a star filled sky. Hope you all will come again. deb


Perfect elopement

4.6 on April 26, 2016

The elopement package we chose was perfect, all details were taken care of. The food is amazing. Our cottage was cute and secluded. The b&b was quiet, relaxing, and perfect for a weekend away. The grounds are cute and quaint. Deb & Don have a special environment and we are so glad we found them!

Innkeeper Response
We thank you for taking time to write us a review. We are glad that your elopement was "Perfect". We do hope you will come back for an anniversary and please send your friends. Deb


Loved every minute!

5 on April 12, 2016

Our stay at Star of Texas was just what we needed - a quiet weekend to reconnect and unwind. We did use the free wifi to access our Amazon Prime account, but otherwise, we were completely unplugged, which was wonderful! The Morelock's are wonderful hosts! We enjoyed our delicious breakfasts and our fruit and wine (we got craft beer) platter was amazing. The private hot tub was a favorite of ours too. The location of this B&B is perfect for us as my family lives close by and could keep the children! I hope we can go back another time!

Innkeeper Response
We are glad you enjoyed your stay, that does make it nice to have family close to watch the kids. The hot tub will be waiting for your next visit. Deb
