Very cozy. Perfect overnight getaway. We were made to feel so comfortable! The Inn Keeper was wonderful to talk with and made us feel at home.

Above what I expected

We had a beautiful calm quiet stay. Very relaxing and such a well kept beautiful home. Wished we could have stayed longer

This was our first trip to a bed and breakfast, and Granny Lou's was the absolutely perfect choice. Everyone was so friendly and helpful, and they treated our dog just as good as us. Not a single complaint.

Great place

We had a really nice time at Granny Lou's. Jenn was supper nice and the food was great.

Fabulous Innkeeper

3.6 on July 12, 2016

I think what makes this place a great place to stay is the owners/innkeepers hospitality. She's a gem! So friendly. Nicest place in Bonham, TX to stay!

A breath of fresh air

Incredible stay there one night away and bottom. It's so close to downtown that you can walk and visit antique stores or go downtown. The service was amazing, the food was great and the house was spectacular. It was a wonderful night away for me and my wife. We will definitely be back!

Amazing relaxation

5 on June 24, 2016

The room was comfortable and cool. Breakfast was amazing and the visitation with the other guest at the breakfast table was inspiring. What a wonderful time.

My husband and his friend booked a skydive in nearby Whitewright, TX. I was looking for a place to stay that was close to Whitewright, since we live over 2 hours away. Granny Lou's looked so charming and romantic online, I just had to book it! All four of us stayed here (DH, me, and our two friends) and we had the BEST time! The Red River room was so Victorian looking and so comfortable - and the bathroom was huge! Jenniffer was so attentive and accommodating and friendly! I felt like I had made a new friend by the time we left. The wine, cheese, snacks, and homemade cookies were amazing. Although I was unable to eat breakfast due to a migraine (which I get frequently - no fault of Jenn's - lol), my companions said breakfast was delicious. I find myself looking for excuses to go back to this area and stay here again! Hopefully, we will be able to stay longer and explore the local antique shops downtown. I highly recommend Granny Lou's!

We love staying at Granny Lou's. Jen Self is a wonderful, gracious innkeeper who we've come to love. We feel like she's s part of our family and the cottage we stay in is perfect for us.

great time. great service

You didn't really stay in Bonham unless you stayed here

4.8 on January 08, 2016

There's no better place to stay in probably all of Fannin County. Jen "Granny Lou" Self is a fantastic and friendly host who does her utmost to ensure that your stay in comfortable and relaxing. She knows a great deal about the history of this unique Victorian home and the town, too, plus what's good to know about the here and now, including places to check out and restaurants to eat at while in town. If you stay somewhere else, you are missing out on experiencing Bonham.

Wonderful Bed And Breakfast Inn

As always, we had a wonderful stay at Granny Lou's! Jen is the BEST innkeeper!

Home away from home

We've stayed here more than once. It's always nice, clean and friendly. Will stay here each time we are in the area!

enjoyable stay

Spent one night on a business trip and would do it again.

Oasis on the north Texas prairie

4.6 on September 05, 2015

This was our 3rd stay at Granny Lou's. It just gets better every time. The rooms are all unique and very comfortable, breakfast was filling and delicious and our host Jennifer Self was most gracious. Even though we weren't the only guest, it certainly felt like it. Coming in after our fist day out, cookies and wine greeted us. On night 2, Jennifer and 2 other guests were on the patio sipping wine and chatting. We joined in for a while. Jennifer is adding another guest cottage out back that looks to be most comfortable and accommodating. All in all, it was a great stay. I highly recommend Granny Lou's to anyone looking for a home like experience in Bohnham.

Quilt Hop Weekend

5 on August 03, 2015

What better way to enjoy the Bonham Quilt Hop than to stay at a beautiful bed and breakfast to finish our trip? It was everything a large Victorian house should be and more, a wonderful combination of modern conveniences like central air conditioning and good windows with the old style and decorations of a house out of the past.

loved Granny Lou's!

5 on June 03, 2015

Jennifer was extremely friendly and made us feel welcome. The breakfast was awesome! Biscuits and gravy, egg and cheese cups, sausage, and refreshing yogurt with fresh blueberries equals yum!

Mothers Day visit.

5 on May 28, 2015

My sister and I stayed at Granny Lou's for a few days while we visited our mother at her resting place in Dodd City Cemetary. We loved the accommodations. The innkeeper, Jennifer is a gracious host. She waited on us with homemade cookies, ice tea, coffee. In the afternoon she offered wine, cheese, fruit to all the guests staying in her home. It was like one big family. And she served a very delicious breakfast. We could have been more comfortable than being at home. When we left I felt as though I was leaving my sister. Thank you Jenn for helping my sister and me to get through our first Mothers Day without our sweet MaMa.

Granny Lou's is a delight!

I could not have been happier with my stay at Granny Lou's. The house and furnishings are charming and my breakfasts were delicious. Granny Lou's is a delight and I will certainly be back! Sarah

A great surprise.

4.6 on February 23, 2015

My wife and I had to find last minute accommodation in Bonham last week and we found Granny Lou's. What a great surprise. A warm welcome, wonderful staff and a too short stay! (Wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy more of the Innkeeper hospitality. We will be back!

This Place is Charming!

5 on December 23, 2014

We were greeted at the door by the innkeeper. The beautiful Victorion was cozy and very inviting. The bed was wonderful. The food was delicious. We will be going back!


5 on December 08, 2014

Oh my gosh! I stayed 3 nights and did not want to leave there. I would move in if I could! I have stayed in 100's of hotels and bed and breakfast and this is by far my favorite place to stay.

Charming small town atmosphere

3.0 on October 13, 2014

Jenniffer is a beautiful busy lady. I chose the cottage because I knew our time of arrival was going to be very late at night and I didn't want to disturb other guests. Jenniffer was very accommodating and gracious considering we arrived at 1 a.m.. Later I found out she was also planning a wedding for the weekend, what energy she must have! The bathroom shower was too small for my hubby (he his a big man). There is a small refrigerator in the room which was great but it had not been cleaned out from the last visitor. Jenniffer took care of that immediately. Although I did not rate it outstanding I had a pleasant experience & would stay there again but in a larger room!

Great place to relax

5 on September 21, 2014

I stayed at Granny Lou's in late Aug. The inn keeper Jenn is warm and inviting. I wanted to treat my self to Granny Lou's instead of staying in a hotel. Boy am I glad that I did. I was welcomed with hugs and felt like I belonged there. The inn is beautiful, clean and really amazing. Great breakfast, and accommodating to everyone's needs. I am going to stay there again and again, it was a great experience. Cindy from Colorado

Granny Lou's B & B

4.6 on August 19, 2014

We had a great stay at Granny Lou's. We felt like we made some new friends in the innkeeper and chef there. The breakfast was way more than we expected...the works with bacon & sausage! We felt like they accommodated our wishes very well. The only downside, and this was minimal, there is some slight road noise in the front room as it's on a main street in Bonham. Not enough to really disturb, but if you like to sleep in, ask for a room on the back side of the house. And another great thing...checkout is 12:00 noon and we asked for breakfast at 11:00 problem! So no need to scramble awake and get down to breakfast. They will ask you when you want it! Loved that! Plus the grounds, patio area and old barn are beautiful. We will definitely stay there again and are considering it for a family member's wedding venue. It's really set up for wedding parties as it has a 3 bedroom cottage and a one bedroom cottage also on the grounds.

I stayed in the Secret Garden Cottage so it was nice and quiet. It has its own deck with a lounge and a small table with chairs. I highly recommend Granny Lou's.

A welcome rest!

Stunning victorian, absolute eye candy and comfortable too. Nooks and crannies and decorated everywhere. A wonderful restoration. Jay was a kind and friendly host. Our best wishes to them in their next chapter!

A Must Visit B&B!

5 on February 26, 2013

This B&B is based in a stunning historical home, with beautiful interior and exterior features. Each room is themed, and decorated accordingly! The "innkeepers" are incredibly friendly and accommodating, and even join you for meals if you like! With limited options for in-town lodgings in this area, the competitive pricing and overall quality of the stay here makes repeat reservations an obvious choice!

Granny Lou's is always a delight!

5 on February 26, 2012

Owners Jay and Tracy have always provided us a wonderful place to stay, in a relaxing atmosphere, with plenty of privacy, excellent food and conversation. Mary R.

Highly recommend

4.2 on August 23, 2011

I have been traveling weekly to this location and always stay at this B&B. The owners are caring and courteous. The breakfast is NOT just continental but a full hot breakfast. Wonderful.

Somewhere in Time

4.6 on July 12, 2011

I surprised my wife by planning our Anniversary weekend that included a night at Granny Lou's. We had golfed on the day of our arrival and were a bit wiped out from the Texas heat. We arrived late afternoon and my wife went straight up and laid down. We stayed in the Somewhere In Time room and from the first moment it was a cool, comfortable haven. She fell in love with our room and immediately started planning a return trip when it wasn’t such hot weather. Jay and Tracy are gracious hosts, breakfast and conversation was delightful. I would recommend Granny Lou's to anyone who want a retreat from the city. Visit the nearby Bonham State Park for a swim or a picnic. Also there is a Trade Days flea market the weekend before the 2nd Monday each month.

Gorgeous B and B with great hospitality

4.2 on May 05, 2011

The breakfast was outstanding, and the interior of the home was beautiful- many lovely antiques. Would definitely recommend.

Stay at Granny Lou's

Stay was very nice and pleasant. Food was delicious. Stay was extremely better than the facility stayed at on previous visits.

Forget Me Not, I won't!!

5 on July 22, 2010

It was just wonderful. Mr. Jay and Mrs. Tracy were beyond gracious hosts!Every little detail was unforgettable. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and look forward to returning sometime this year. I loved it so much, I am sending one of my dearest friends to experience the same magical night we did~

Secret Garden or Miss Priss' House

4.8 on April 22, 2009

We felt right at home. Very peaceful. Jay and Tracy go out of their way to make you feel at home. Not to mention Miss Priss. When in the area again we would stay nowhere else.


5 on January 03, 2009

I've been to other B&B's & this is definitely the best. I would definitely recommend this B&B to others. The innkeepers were very nice & helpful. This was the best experience I've ever had staying somewhere. Definitely worth it.

highly recommend!
