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!

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

Such a peaceful B&B

5 on April 05, 2016

During our stay we eloped and stayed the weekend. They took care of everything for us, even the photos! It's so beautiful there, they really have created something special out there. The breakfast, wow!! No words can describe how amazing the food is. They are the sweetest people, and the different details they put into each private room is astonishing. We are so glad we stumbled across this place, it was the perfect place to married my best friend.

We eloped to this beautiful place and got everything we wanted. It's gorgeous, the owners are wonderful, the cottages were perfect. We couldn't have asked for anything better.

We Love Star Of Texas

5 on March 17, 2016

We decided to elope, and we could not have been happier!!! Fantastic breakfast every day, friendly staff, and a beautiful wedding, performed by none other than Don the Chaplain-Deb took our wedding photos, and her boundless enthusiasm, and passion for her craft was second to none-if we had an idea, she ran with it, and made it better...they treated us like royalty, and made our wedding truly special. Additionally, they had animal friends! The hot tub was nice as well. You can't go wrong here, they're the best!!!

Innkeeper Response
We are so happy that everything went as you had hoped for. Thanks so much for the wonderful review, we love it when guest notice our passion for what we do. Hope to see you again soon. deb

Beyond Expectations!

5 on February 23, 2016

For your one year anniversary, we spent the weekend in the Oak Cottage. We really didn't know what to expect. Debbie met us upon arrival. What a gracious hostess she was. She showed us around and told us her background story on how this magnificent place was thought about and then created. She showed us to our cabin and even offered to help us with unpacking. We made friends with the cats, the chickens, rooster and birds that occupy the premises. We enjoyed ourselves so much with the seclusion of the place. We made s'mores on the fire pit, soaked in our private hot tub and enjoyed the stars at night. Breakfast was brought to our cabin by Debbie and was amazing, delicious, beautiful and worth waiting for. Be sure to enjoy the nature trail walk. You will be surprised at the special things you see along the way. Leave your own special trinket along the way. Ask Debbie what time the deers are fed by her brother-in-law. You will see about 40 deer at dusk. Stash your cell phone and just enjoy the relaxing environment that captures you! Sandy and Robert Winchester

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for your words of kindness, we are so glad that you all had such a good time enjoying yourselves while here. We hope to have you come again. deb


Events and Stay

5 on February 22, 2016

We had our 5yr renewal ceremony here and the room was quiet, isolated from the other cabins so it's not a like a hotel where the rooms are wall to wall. You actually get your own privacy which was nice. The cabin comes with ipod charger (bring own cord), there is a microwave and a mini-fridge. We couldn't find the creamer at first, but it's in the fridge just FYI. Bring your own hairdryer and toothbrush/paste, it comes with all the other toiletries. We have a 3yr old and it was nice just to get out of the house and do something for ourselves. As for events, we chose the elopement package for our renewal instead of the renewal package only because it came with cake which was homemade by Deb (looked like the ones in the bridal magazines). Deb was also our photographer and Don was our minister. There are also plenty of sites around the area to do the ceremony and the photography was phenomenal. Highly recommend. Will stay again if given a chance. Willowbend had a King size bed, the other ones are Queen. Microwave and fridge available. TV is satellite with most requested channels.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for your review, Vow Renewals are such a special event in our lives, we are glad that you were so pleased with your ceremony. Hope to see you again. Deb


Highly Recommend

5 on February 09, 2016

We had our 5yr renewal ceremony this past weekend and I have to say the room was clean, very rustic and home-like, for those Apple lovers, they had an iphone charger (must have your own cord), and a microwave. You must supply your own hair dryer and toothbrush/paste, but otherwise, they have towels and other toiletries. They also have a journal inside the cabin so other guests can write about their experiences. Take advantage, I'm sure Don and Deb would appreciate it. The front porch had two sitting chairs and a table so on a nice day, you can relax and stare at the great view. The renewal ceremony was excellent. If you are planning on having an event here, Don and Deb do all the planning based on your input of course. They let us decorate the area and the photos were included in the CD. Furthermore, the breakfast was great. I think it's different for every guest and is homemade. If you want a rustic, western, Texas like atmosphere, this is the place. Also they recommended a restaurant called "The Turtle." Go there for fine dining, it's a bit expensive, not fast food or sit down ihop by any means, but well worth it.

Innkeeper Response
We had fun doing your renewal with you and family. We are glad you enjoyed yourself. Sorry on the hair dryer, it should have been there, I'll check on that. Hope to have you come again. Deb
