My family decided to get away from Houston and San Antonio for the Thanksgiving Holiday. I was so excited I was able to book this place because of the great pictures of the house and property. As we drove up the gravel road to the property we all thought "Oh my Gosh" it is absolutely beautiful! We knew we were in for a treat! The first thing that catches your breath is the amazing, magnificent oak trees all over the property. The yellow country home/farmhouse was also so delightful. The house is so large and comfortable with all the amenities you need and then some. The kitchen is large, well equipped with two beautiful sinks and stove (yes...even the sinks) are wonderful. You can tell the extra care and attention the owners took to appoint the rooms with lovely beds, paintings and decorations that were unique and pleasant to the eye. The house also had small unexpected quaint areas throughout.. like the wood Bar nook and games to play with the family...which made the house so much fun and interesting to explore. It also had an extra "vintage" era General Electric refrigerator that brought back so many memories of years past for my mom and cool for us and my girls to see. To wake up and see horses and cows out the windows and from the wrap around porch was wonderful! We have stayed at many bed and breakfast/homes through the years with my large extended family in Wimberly and Fredericksburg and this has been our favorite!! The owners are absolutely wonderful and helpful! They also made the stay extra nice with furnishing many of the food amenities. Thank you for a wonderful place to stay and many great memories. Your place is amazing!

We were so happy to stay at the ranch during the Round Top Antiques fair last week. The surroundings are beautiful, mornings cool and relaxing, the evenings so pleasant looking at the millions of stars you see sitting around the pool and the accommodations very gracious. We had everything we wanted and lots of space to move around. The owners could not be more accommodating when we had questions or needs. Would definitely stay with them again when we plan to come to the show.

My wife and I were looking for a relaxing B&B in Brenham for a celebration of our anniversary. We were looking for that "good 'ole fashioned" relaxing country environment to get out away from the big city hustle and bustle. We were thoroughly impressed with our stay at Skip's Texas Ranch. Skip and Jo were amazing hosts and allowed us to feel like a part of their family. During our stay, we experienced amazing and beautiful rolling hillside veiws with gorgeous large oak trees that provided peaceful shade and soothing sounds of the breeze as it blew through. It was a great location, we were able to visit the Bluebell Creameries and the quaint and cute little downtown area of Brenham all within a 15 minutes drive from the ranch. Forget work, forget the big city life, come out and enjoy the true meaning of Brenham and southern hospitality and enjoy a little piece of heaven on earth.

"Brenham at its best". "A little piece of heaven on earth". My wife and I were looking for a relaxing B&B in Brenham for a celebration of our anniversary. We were looking for that "good 'ole fashioned" relaxing country environment to get away from the big city hustle and bustle. Skip's Texas Ranch LLC gave us that and more. We were thoroughly impressed with the geniune hospitality and the beautifully rennovated home that was opened to us by Skip and Jo Loring. They were amazing hosts and allowed us to feel like part of their family. During our stay, we were able to take in the amazing and beautiful rolling hillside views of their 100 acre property while rocking on the front porch amongst the beautiful large oak trees that provided comforting shade and soothing sounds of the breeze as it made its way through leaves. Take some time away from work and the big city life and come out to Skip's Texas Ranch B&B and enjoy the true meaning of relaxation in Brenham and experience a little piece of heaven on earth! ~The Nelsons

The pictures absolutely do not do it justice. I have rented a few places in the area, but this place was a truly wonderful surprise!! We had 10 people and more than enough room. The place is HUGE! It had everything you could possibly want. Can't wait to come back!
