Yellow House is one of our favorite places to stay . Very comfortable and quite. The beds, linen's, & towels are very nice ! The Breakfast are so delicious!! Would recommend this place to anyone and the owners Kathy and Brian are the sweetest and accommodating .. will stay with them again !!
Wonderful and convenient accommodations for our grandchildren and great grandchildren. GrandAnne's has enough room for a 5 year old and 3 year old to roam and play inside and outside. They have already asked to come back during the summer so they can swim and go fishing. Ann Steichen is wonderful to deal with and accommodates our every wish. We will certainly have GrandAnne's as our first choice for future family accommodations with visiting us. PS - we live in Volente so the location of GrandAnne's couldn't be better for family visits. We certainly recommend GrandAnne's for a relaxing visit with lots of activities close by. Paul and Millie Wilson
My husband and I had a lovely time at the Olive Tree Inn. The backyard is a beautifully, lush setting with much greenery. The sounds of the various water features accentuate the peaceful setting. The rooms are eclecticlly decorated giving your eyes many things upon which to linger. The food was amazing! In addition to a fabulous breakfast, we were treated to wine and cheese in the evening. The innkeepers are attentive to your every need and delightful conversationalists. They had just opened prior to our arrival, so a few kinks were being worked out. Otherwise I would have given them 5 stars in all categories! I would be more than happy to return.
My book club spent a weekend at the Yellow House B&B. We reserved the blue house and it was just what we were looking for. The size, cleanliness, and accommodations were outstanding. The hot breakfast and snacks were plentiful and delicious. Bottled water, soda, and snacks were provided and the coffee/tea choices for the Keurig were amazing. We absolutely loved our stay and some ladies are already talking about going back next year. If I could make one suggestion, it would be to find out if guests have allergies to certain foods or other needed accommodations. I know that a small business can't meet all needs, but more gluten-free choices would have been perfect. To be honest, I never thought to mention it to the owners when I made the reservation so it may be that they already have ways to deal with those issues. The town of Salado is cute, but the dining options are limited. Eat fairly early or buy something to cook at the house for dinner. There was a grill on the back porch, but we didn't try it. The rocking chairs on the front porch were our main hangout - peaceful and restful all the way. Don't hesitate to visit the Yellow House B&B. You won't be disappointed.
This was our first experience with a B&B, but it won't be our last! The green cottage was comfortable and provided a perfect getaway for us. So many extra touches made this a special place - from the delicious breakfast to the homemade afternoon goodies to the fully stocked refrigerator and snacks! Thank you for a great weekend!
Loved staying here! Beautiful and quiet, we stayed in one of the cottages with its own front porch. Our room had everything you could want or need. We had plenty of coffee, bottled water, and snacks. The breakfasts were fabulous! And, everyday we were given delicious homemade sweet treats. I have no clue why anyone would stay in a hotel!
We spent a wonderful weekend at GrandAnne's On The Lake and Volente Beach Water Park! Anne was warm and welcoming and the B and B was much larger and prettier than I envisioned from the photos. The large yard was super for the 4 boys to run and play in. The views from the balcony and deck were spectacular! Relaxing, relaxing! We are already talking about our next trip down to visit the Austin cousins and staying at GrandAnne's! Thank you, Anne! You were a fabulous hostess!
We had a girls night/business meeting at the Yellow House. The rooms were very cute. The kitchen area and living room were perfect for our meeting. Lots of little extras and the owners are very special people. Would love to go back.
Yellow House B&B went above & beyond our expectations. The cottage my husband and I stayed in was so clean and comfortable. Brian & Cathy were perfect hosts giving us complete privacy yet always available when needed. We especially enjoyed the tour Brian gave us of the other houses on the property (since the were not being used at the time). It was so interesting to hear how the B&B came to be and how it has evolved over the 10 years that he and Cathy have been the owners. The breakfast and afternoon baked treats were also something we looked forward to each day. The only negative thing I have to say is that we only had three days to stay. We could easily have stayed a week!! Thank you Brian & Cathy. We hope to visit you again soon!
My sister and I spent 4 nights in the lovely Purple Cottage in late April, 2017. It was perfect! Beautifully decorated and clean, with a fridge stocked with cold drinks and snacks. The breakfasts were amazing and the freshly baked afternoon snacks were a welcome treat upon our return from checking out the surrounding area. Brian and Kathy were wonderful hosts!
The room was comfortable and quiet. The breakfast was amazing. There are drinks and snacks available all day. A refrigerator for you for your convenience if you want to put anything in there. In the main house there is a TV and comfy sofas. We will definitely go back!
What a wonderful experience! We have been visiting Salado during the wildflower season for the past 40 years. It's the first time we have stayed at the Yellow House, and we chose the Purple Cottage. (All the cottages look wonderful.) Our cottage certainly made the trip very special. Accommodations were lovely, clean, and everything you look for in you in a Bed and Breakfast. Brian and Cathy are very special hosts who make you feel right at home. What a wonderful memory! The Wilsons
Just spent our second weekend at YHB&B. Our first experience was two years ago when my entire family stayed for the weekend to attend my mother's memorial service. We rented all of the houses and cottages (except main house rooms). Every one of us fell in love. The houses and rooms are very clean and beautifully appointed. We had water, soda, coffee, tea and cocoa in ready supply. Cathy & Brian run this place with a lot of care and consideration. They even bring over a fresh baked treat in the afternoons. The breakfasts are AMAZING - French toast casserole one day and a savory breakfast pie and yogurt parfait the next! Heavenly! This has become one of our favorite places to stay - the property and houses are unique and beautiful, but Cathy & Brian are top notch on hospitality! Don't hesitate - book now. You will love it, too!
Brian and Cathy are the perfect hosts....friendly, accommodating, knowledgeable about the region, attentive to their guests needs. I was able to relax and feel at home while on a business trip. I loved my two day stay with them. The breakfast was fresh, abundant and delicious. The rooms and common areas were clean and comfortable. I would definitely recommend this venue for business.
I stayed here with my bridal party December 8-10. We received the best service, the nicest rooms, and the most adorable atmosphere I could've imagined. This was the perfect place to stay for my bridesmaids and I, and the perfect place to take some pre-wedding photos. Feel free to check them out on the Yellow House's facebook page! Thank you for a wonderful stay, and I feel confident my new husband and I will be back in the future!
We stayed at the Yellow House B & B 12/9/2016 and 12/10/2016. The B&B was decorated beautifully for the Christmas holiday. Both Brian and Cathy were there to greet us immediately upon our arrival. The food was great and presented in an artfully manner. The bedding was lovely and made for peaceful, restful sleeping. When we mentioned to others in town (Salado) that we were staying at the Yellow House for the two days and it was very nice, they said they had often heard this type of comment from other guests of the Yellow House. Thank you Brian & Cathy. KDS & PAS
Our stay in Salado at Yellow House was a pleasant surprise. While attending the annual Scottish Festival, our stay at Yellow House Bed & Breakfast became one the the most pleasurable experiences for the entire weekend stay. Yellow House is well managed with attention to detail and comfort. The facilities were extremely clean and the breakfast was second to none. The owners take pride in the devlopment of this small getaway. A barn has also been renovated to accommodate special events. Our stay at Yellow House, became the highlight of our visit. The outdoor features are perfect for a family environment. Take some time to relax and put your feet up and enjoy your stay at Yellow House! Thank you so much, Brian & Cathy, for your attention to detail and your desire to provide such a relaxing visit.
Sweet lakefront property. Anne is wonderful. She wants you to have a great stay and will do everything she can to make you feel at home. I stayed upstairs and it felt like I was staying with family. I daily walked out to the dock and sat by the water. Very peaceful. Volente is gorgeous and you must see a sunset at The Oasis which is right down the street. I like that it felt like you were away from the rush, but could get to conveniences easily if needed. There is also weekend entertainment relatively close if you would like to have a nightcap or listen to music/karaoke.
This B&B was just what our group was looking for. There were 8 of us that were in a separate house on the property and we celebrated a birthday & just being longtime girlfriends! The house had a history just like our group. The house had some wonderful furnishings and bright & clean throughout. Brian & Cathy were superb hosts and the breakfasts were some mighty fine eating!! We all would highly recommend staying here and hope we can come back again soon.
This was our second time to visit Grandanne's, its just like visiting family. From the brandy slush on arrival to the blueberry pancakes, its a relaxing and refreshing get away. We have had a full house both times and even with all the kids and adults, there was enough room for everyone. Right on lake and the marina in walking distance means easy access to swimming and kayaking (we brought our own kayak) to jet ski and boat rentals only minutes away. The zip line is about 3 minutes away by car and the Oasis is about 10 minutes away so the location is really great. Anne has accumulated enough books around the house to be a small library, so its easy to put your feet up and relax at any time. Grandanne is a wonderful lady and she has always gone out of her way to make us feel at home and welcome.
From the Brandy Slush on arrival to the blueberry pancakes, GrandAnne's is a favorite of our family. The kids feel right at home, nothing fancy, just like visiting your grandparent's house. The beds are comfortable, plenty of places to sit back and read or nap. A short walk down the stone steps to the lake and you can go swimming off the boat house (we brought our kayak this time too.) There is also a spacious deck on the back of the house where we spent most evenings. The marina is right across the inlet (15 minute walk) if you want to rent jet ski's or a boat and the Lake Travis Zip Line is only a few miles away. We plan to go back.
