We eloped and we loved it!!!

5 on October 13, 2014

My husband and I just eloped at the Star of Texas Bed and Breakfast! We had chosen this location because it looked just like us, and we were not disappointed! The ceremony was so relaxing, the vows were simple and emotional. The proprietors even provided us with a cake and champagne toast and a gorgeous set of wedding photos! We could not have asked for a more romantic, engaging experience. We stayed two nights in the tranquil Oak Cottage, enjoying our view of the country and the cardinals from the front porch while dining on the wine, fruit and cheese tray. Our breakfast in the morning was DIVINE. We even got to watch a thunderstorm roll in one evening from the large picture window in our room. Our lives are so very busy and packed with activity in the city, but here we were able to simply relax and embrace nature. We will return here often in the future! If you are seeking solitude and an environment that feels like home the moment you walk in, this is the place for you.

Innkeeper Response
We are so glad, that you were able to enjoy your wedding day and then be relaxed for the rest of your stay. Thank you for all the compliments, we do look forward to you coming again in the future. Best wishes to you. deb


dream wedding

5 on October 03, 2014

The Star of Texas provided us with a wedding of our dreams. We eloped on 9/27/14 a year to the day we met. We stayed in the Oak Cottage and enjoyed every second of this gorgeous B & B. Don & Deb Morelock are wonderful and treat you like family. Our wedding ceremony was beautiful and so many special touches were added by the Morelocks. The food is delicious and delivered to your cottage each morning. The Star of Texas is a jewel, we plan to make many returns to the uniquely beautiful place. You can experience beautiful art and God's beauty in one location. We will carry the memories in our hearts forever.

Innkeeper Response
That makes me so happy, that we made your dreams come true. Thank you for your kind words of praise for us and our property. We will be looking forward to your return visits. deb


Absolute Gem!

5 on September 23, 2014

My fiancé and I decided to do the elopement package after we weren't getting any help from our wedding party. We had an absolute blast here. Everything was taken care of and all we had to do was relax and enjoy the scenery. We will definitely be back for another visit. Top notch place, top notch folks!

Innkeeper Response
I love being called top notch. Thanks so much and glad you enjoyed your stay and very happy you were relaxed. Hope to see you again soon.


Perfect Place to Elope

5 on September 19, 2014

I brought my (now) wife to this lovely B&B to get married, and we couldn't have been more satisfied! Don performed the ceremony while Debbie took pictures. The location was both beautiful and private--necessities for our 3-day stay / honeymoon. The best part was Debbie's breakfast that Don served us every morning. It was WOW! Creative dishes plus good home cooking equaled a fabulous start to the day! If you're looking for a reasonably priced location for your wedding or honeymoon that offers a scenic, secluded atmosphere, the Star of Texas Bed and Breakfast is hard to beat.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for your compliments on my cooking, I try to make it special. We are pleased that you were happy with your stay and your ceremony. Hope to see you again in the future. Deb


Weekend Getaway

4.8 on September 09, 2014

The hubby and I were in serious need of a getaway after recent work stress and travel. SoT was just what we needed! the property feels remote and peaceful, but is close enough to town to take advantage of great lunch and dinner options. We stayed in the Oak Cottage, and it was simply perfect. Don and Deb were both very helpful and welcoming. The bed and bedding were so comfortable, and the hot tub was awesome! We enjoyed taking in the countryside via the nature trails that they have set up around the property. Breakfast was delicious! Our first morning we were served a wonderful spread of orange infused french toast with fresh melon and rosemary scrambled eggs. Super yummy and the perfect start to our day! Deb had let me know ahead of time that they would be running off to a B&B convention and wouldn't be available to provide a full breakfast for our second and final morning. However, they comped us the amount for the full breakfast and still set us up with fresh fruit cups, juice and homemade scones. Delish, and perfect for a breakfast on the go! A total treat from start to finish. We will make plans to visit again soon.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for your review. We had a great time at the B&B conference and hope you all will come again and we can share our love for what we do, and what we learned with you. We hope your experience here will help you to decide to stay at more B&B's. Deb


Peaceful

5 on August 06, 2014

My wife and I stayed two nights at the Wildrose Retreat for our 10th anniversary and it was wonderful. The retreat was so quiet, the hot tub so relaxing and the stars so bright. Don and Deb were amazing hosts and we appreciate them for sharing their little piece of heaven with us. If you have a chance to stay you won't regret it. Oh, the breakfast was amazing! Thank you Don and Deb.

Innkeeper Response
We appreciate your review. And yes we love sharing our "Stars" with everyone. Our night skys are so beautiful out here. We hope you will return another time to enjoy the hot tub. deb

5 on August 01, 2014

Innkeeper Response

A Superb and Secluded Stay

4.8 on July 31, 2014

My bride and I recently spent the first two nights of our honeymoon at Star of Texas, and we give it our strong recommendation. Everything was absolutely lovely, and quiet atmosphere and beautiful grounds were consummately relaxing and romantic. Perhaps our favorite aspect was the seclusion: the B&B is found at the end of a long and shady drive in the countryside, and the individual cottages are spaced a comfortable distance from each other on the wooded, rolling property. The simple prettiness of the place was also enchanting, with Don and Debbie's artsy doodads scattered liberally around the grounds and the nature walk through the trees. The rooms themselves were not especially fancy, but were simple, comfortable, artistic, and clean. We loved it all. The owners themselves were extremely polite and helpful. They allowed us to take our wedding photos at the B&B, and we could not be more pleased with the results. Breakfast was also superb. The meals were wholesome and delicious with a touch of flair. The poppy seed pancakes and accompanying citrus syrup were hands down the best I've ever had. All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Star of Texas. Don and Debbie have created a magical little place in the woods outside Brownwood, and my wife and I can't wait to return.

Innkeeper Response
We appreciate you taking the time to write our review. Thanks for all the compliments, we love having guest that can appreciate all the "doodads" that we love to create. Our rooms are simple and peaceful, for our guest to enjoy. We do look forward to you all coming again.


Perfect Elopement and Getaway!

4.8 on July 28, 2014

My husband and I couldn't have asked for a better way to start our married life together. Don and Deb thought of all the little details for our wedding. The dinner and breakfasts were great and the massage was just what we needed. After all that it was just nice to be out where it was quiet and peaceful, where we could spend time together and getaway from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The only thing we thought could be different was the faucet in the Oak Cottage. It is so close to the wall it is hard to wash hands or brush teeth. Other than that everything else was about the room was perfect. Thank you for a perfect wedding and stay! We will definitely be back!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for the review, we are glad it went well for you. On the faucet, that came from an old hotel and I fell in love with the way it went with the decor, I agree, it is a little close to the wall, but thanks for your honesty. Maybe I can find something to replace it with someday that will fit. deb
