Blair House Inn guests can cool down with a dip in our 45 foot lap pool or relax in the whirlpool spa to escape the summer heat. In keeping with the local ambience and charm, the pool was custom designed by Canyon Pools & Spas, well-known for their use of Texas limestone, and was built to blend into the landscape with hill country views in mind.

This will our third stay at The Blair House and it has become a tradition. We attend the cooking school or come for a vintner's dinner or just to relax. We discovered Market Days in Wimberly and now have even more reason to book another stay. Chris does a great job in the kitchen and Mike and his staff make the stay personal and restful without intruding. Love this place!

We had a great time at Blair House. We drove to the Inn directly from our wedding reception. I was a little worried to find the place dark and locked up when we arrived, but then I checked my phone and found a friendly message explaining how to access our key and information packet. We loved the breakfast, the attentive and cheerful service, the music played in the main house, and the grounds. The San Gabriel cottage was delightful, if expensive, and the porch was perfect for sipping wine or soaking up a little sun. The only negative about the porch was that it was right over a grassy area that had at least 12 piles of dog feces. Thankfully there was no smell, but this didn't add to the romance of the place, and I was surprised that no one had cleaned up the area. The bed was great, as was the small bedside sound system, the leather sofa, and the fireplace. There were two things we DIDN'T enjoy about the room, although neither was a huge deal to us. First, Blair House maintains an eclectic and pretty extensive collection of CDs and DVDs. That's a plus if you want to stay in, and we enjoyed listening to some of their CDs. But after spending significant time choosing a couple of movies, we found that the room did not have a DVD player, or at least we could not find one. There was an instruction manual in the cabinet below the TV, but it did not match the brand of the actual television, so it looked as if the unit had been replaced or something. This was a disappointment that we discovered too late in the evening to do anything about. Second, we enjoyed the jacuzzi tub but found that after half-filling it (and I mean not even up to where the jets are), the water no longer ran hot. We began to use the microwave and coffee maker to heat water, determined to have a hot bath. Thankfully, the hot water returned after about ten minutes.So it wasn't perfect, but still, we loved the place. Given the quirks, I would have loved it even more at a lower price.

It's a pleasant surprise when an experience is better than expected. We found Blair House via the internet and signed up for a weekend stay and their Sat. holiday dinner. On arrival, we were greeted by owners Mike and Vickie. The grounds and facilities are first class, only exceeded by the warmth of the Schneiders. But the highlight was the food, expertly prepared by Chef Chris. Breakfast is a treat, served in the charming dining room. The Sat. night dinner is not be be missed, a full 5 course meal with wine. An extra plus to Blair House is their Cooking School. We will go back and are telling friends about our wonderful experience. J&B

I’m vegan and they custom built all my breakfasts and they also modified dishes for my aunt’s lactose intolerance. Mike and Vickie were super nice. The Dallas room was wonderful and felt like home. The sun room and deck were both very comfortable, providing opportunities to enjoy the hill country views. The bed was nice and comfy on a cold night. We will come back one day. My aunt and I have stayed all over the world, and this is by far the best. Keep up the wonderful job, Blair House. We think you guys are the fantastic.
