Josephine's Suite is named for the youngest Cogdell daughter and mother of Philippa. This two-room suite is over-the-top with luxury. The massive king bed is adorned with Vera Wang linens and beautiful draperies divide the bedroom from the sitting room solarium. The solarium is walled with 15 windows and sits in the tops of the oak and pecan trees. Guests can relax on the beautiful sofas and watch TV, read a book or just enjoy nature.
Philippa's Balcony is named for Philippa Schuyler, Harlem's biracial child prodigy and the Cogdell granddaughter who was never known to her grandparents. The large luxury room is located at the front of the house with a balcony over the front porch. A beautifully appointed king bed, and a sofa and chair adorn the room.
Daniel C. Cogdell commissioned this exquisite Arts and Crafts home built when the original 22-room, three-story Victorian burned to the ground in 1905. The Cogdell Suite is located on the first floor of the house and is a huge master suite with a sitting room solarium of 15 windows.
Situated behind the main house, the Garden Cottage offers that private, romantic setting, but still gives guests the opportunity to join other guests in the main house for afternoon snacks and breakfast. Garden Cottage guests can enjoy the fireplace from the comfort of the king-size bed, sofa, or the 7 foot original claw foot tub. Guests can choose to have breakfast in the main house, in the cottage, or on the cottage patio.

To distract myself from the 10th anniversary of my sweet husband's death, I planned a short stay in Granbury like we had done several times. The Iron Horse Inn was perfect and I enjoyed the visit at breakfast with others staying there. The room was beautiful, extremely clean, quiet and peaceful. It was a terrific way to reminisce some great memories of our married life. I'll definitely go again.

Wonderful house....beautifully restored. The owners, Don and Diana, are so nice and gracious hosts. The house sits just two blocks from the town square, and is easily accessible via a nice walking path. I highly recommend the beautiful bed and breakfast.

We had a wonderful time here when we went to Granbury. We stayed in Phillippa's Balcony in the front - it was spacious and very nice and we loved the balcony. The breakfast was great and the owner's were very friendly. I would recommend to anyone!

The owners were very accommodating and shared some great history about the house and property. Great breakfast and nice grounds. They continue to make improvements and updates to the property.

It was a very good experience staying at Iron Horse Inn. Breakfast wasn't a five star experience-more like 7...especially the chocolate chip banana muffins . Highly recommend this B&B. Furnishings were beautiful and the Inn owner was friendly and informative.
