Our family getaway was made complete! The Old Rock House is a great place for couples or families. Near to downtown Hico, yet just far enough away to feel slightly secluded, the house is lovely, well appointed and clean. Breakfast at the Koffee Kup was perfect small town diner fare. Loved everything!

The Old Rock House Bed and Breakfast is a delightful blend of the past with the modern comforts of the present. Nestled in a beautiful grove of multiple hundred year old live oaks and lush vegetation, it is a very restful place to stay and relax.

This is a quiet place nestled in trees. The decor is beautiful and everything you need is provided. The owners do a great job with details. Hico has good places for food as well. Don't miss Wiseman Chocolates and the popcorn shop!
