Better than Expected!

5 on September 01, 2018

It was a last minute trip and I just grabbed the first thing I saw that was close. Wow! I was lucky because the Home and the properties and management were exceptional. This will become our first choice when going back to South Texas. Can’t wait to try the other homes out.

Will be coming back!!!!

5 on August 19, 2018

We stayed in the retreat last night and we absolutely loved it!!!!! Very clean, beautiful scenery, amazing hot tub and great for our weekend alone without our children. We have decided this will be our getaway from now on when we need to reconnect within our marriage! Just off the beaten path but close enough to enjoy a night out and come here afterward and unwind. The price is perfect for all the accommodations you receive. Didn’t even have to leave for breakfast as there was stuff for us to cook and take a relaxing morning. Checkout time is noon which is perfect so you aren’t rushing around after a late night. Will be coming back in the very near future and can’t wait!!!!!

Anniversary trip

5 on August 06, 2018

Scenic Hills was a great place to go for our 40th anniversary. It’s very secluded and quiet. I know that there were other people staying in some of the other cabins. We spent two nights in the Spa cabin it was extremely nice and clean ...beautiful on the inside and out. My wife even said that she could live in a place like that. I know I could. Out on the front porch they have a hot tub and a porch swing. It also has a nice view. They even put some breakfast items in the refrigerator so you can cook up some breakfast. You can bring your own groceries and cook your food there..the cabins have a full kitchen or you can run in to Brenham for lunch or dinner. They also have a propane gas grill outside. All in all it’s a great place to get away. We are definitely going back to this place.

Retreat cottage

5 on August 02, 2018

It was a fantastic stay, the place was spotless and the porch with rocking chairs made you not want to leave! The hot tub was great and we loved the tin roof so when it rained we sat on the porch and listened to the rain hit the tin roof. It was a great experience and we will definitely be back for the comfort ,scenery and peace we so enjoyed. Recommend it highly.

Anniversary weekend

4.6 on June 25, 2018

My wife and I stayed here for our anniversary! Quiet place and beautiful surroundings! Could not have asked for anything more

Peaceful getaway near Houston

4.2 on June 05, 2018

Especially enjoyed the delightful and thoughtful paths throughout the meadow and woods. Lovely!


5 on May 09, 2018

Loved the peace and quiet. It was exactly what we needed. Loved sitting on the balcony listening to the birds and the cows in the distance. The room was clean and comfortable. It was a very relaxing time. We will be returning in the future.

Amazing getaway

4.6 on May 08, 2018

Scenic hills is amazing. Beautiful, well maintained property, great views and a fantastic deal! Our cabin was clean and comfortable, the fridge was well stocked with breakfast staples, the bed was to die for, the walk in shower was fantastic. We’ll be going back, and with such a reasonable drive from Houston it’s not a terrible burden to get away more often.

Anniversary stay

5 on May 07, 2018

The Homestead Cabin exceeded our expectation. This was the perfect place to get away and reconnect. The peace and quiet of the country setting was just what we needed.

Amazing Birthday getaway

5 on April 27, 2018

We had an amazing experience at the homestead cabin. The spa was very relaxing. Sitting on the porch rocking chairs watching the cows eat or just enjoying the scenery was a peaceful experience. The cabin was clean and they gave us our privacy. I would definitely love to come back again.


4.8 on March 19, 2018

My wife and I celebrated our 8th year now, and we look for out of the way places to enjoy a little of the country life. The Spa Cabin we stayed in was excellent and very roomy. The view was very nice with the rolling hills and trees and birds. All I can say is if you need to get away from the city life and relax without any of the usual distractions, this is the place to go. :)

Very relaxing!!

5 on March 15, 2018

Could not have had a better time, waking up and sitttimg outside listening to nothing but the birds, spending the day in a hot tub then at night looking up at all the stars.

Great weekend getaway

5 on February 13, 2018

1st time here. Everything exceeded our expectations. Made us feel right at home. Nice cozy beds, very clean, very quiet. Great weekend getaway. Will definitely be returning.

Great GetAway

4.6 on January 23, 2018

We stayed this past weekend for two nights in the Grand Spa. The property was well kept, cabin was clean, and it was probably the most relaxful weekend my wife and I have had in the last 5 years. We were able to cook onsite with a full kitchen with all utensils. Additionally the breakfast items that were placed in the fridge for us were great. I highly recommend this place.


5 on January 22, 2018

We LOVE this place! We have stayed at The Oasis and at the Farm House...Both EXCELLENT! Great getaway!

Perfect getaway

4.6 on January 22, 2018

Was a wonderful place to get away from the big city. Very clean, comfortable bed and pillows, massage table, homemade pecan muffins and all of the fixings for a nice breakfast in the am. Nice paths to walk around and a beautiful meadow that is perfect for star gazing. Close enough to surrounding towns for fun activities and meals. We’ll be back soon!

Five stars in every way.

5 on January 22, 2018

I used to travel for a living. Internationally and in North America there are few places I'm not familiar with. I KNOW about accommodations! The quiet and secluded property is wonderful. It was a romantic setting. They have paid attention to detail. My wife and I have never spent so much wonderful time doing so little. Exactly what was needed.

Very Relaxing

4.4 on January 02, 2018

Enjoyed every second of our time at the Homestead Cabin. Beautiful scenery and very relaxing. Loved the fact we had breakfast items waiting in our fridge for us to enjoy making together. We finished off each night by relaxing in the hot tub and watching the cows graze. Highly recommend this etbeautiful get away for anyone needing a break from everyday stress. My wife and I spent the time reconnecting with each other.

Homestead cabin

5 on December 22, 2017

Very nice accommodations. Great views and a perfect place to get away.

Birthday get away

4.8 on November 27, 2017

We stayed in the log cabin, very comfy and cozy but spacious. Fully furnished with all modern updated items! Upstairs has loft with comfy king bed and porch off to the front. The front porch has swing and chairs, hammock and bbq pit off to side. Lots of privacy due to the brush and trees between each one, nice walking trails with gravel that takes you to each cabin. I enjoyed walking along the “walking trail” in the evening, get to cross a couple small wooden bridges on the way. Breakfast items were stocked in fridge for breakfast as well as homemade pecan muffins. Relaxing time!

Wonderful escape!

4.6 on November 27, 2017

My husband and I planned a random getaway and so glad we picked this place! What was even better that breakfast is being provided in the refrigerator that we can cook ourselves. The hot tub was heaven and clean. We enjoyed the nature right outside of the cabin as we played a variety of outdoor games for several hours before we went on the road to visit three wineries nearby. We will definitely come back!

Scenic Hill - Hidden Grove

5 on November 27, 2017

Scenic Hill is by far the best place for a relaxing get-a-way. I have been here several times and have always had a wonderful experience. The cabins are always clean and well stocked. I absolutely recommend Scenic Hill for a perfect experience.

Meadow's Edge, November 11th 13th, 2017

5 on November 14, 2017

My husband and I stayed at Scenic Hill, in the Meadow's Edge cabin, and it was a wonderful experience. The cabin was as cute as cute can be, plus the atmosphere was one that can only be described as serene. I cannot recommend Scenic Hill highly enough. Also, PECAN PIE MUFFINS! Need I say more? Hannah Herrick

Spa Cabin

5 on November 09, 2017

I hated to leave! We went for our 23rd wedding anniversary. We had a wonderful two days unwinding from the stress of life. The cabin was decorated very nicely, and the view from the spa was amazing. We enjoyed the birds chirping,cows mooing in the morning, the beautiful little walk across the bridge and of course the home maid muffins and breakfast left in the fridge for us! We can not wait to come back!

Relaxing and private cabin

4.6 on October 18, 2017

We stayed in the Spa Cabin and thoroughly enjoyed our weekend. It was very private with wonderful large windows everywhere to see the trees. The furniture and decor is more modern than most B&B's, which made us feel more at home. We enjoyed the massage table in its perfect setting. There was a charming walking path that went over a creek and there is such detail everywhere. I can tell a lot of work was put into the overall cohesion of the property and it's very cozy. There was a large game area on the far end of the property but the weather was too hot. We'd love to come back and bring our family!

Our little escape

4.6 on September 27, 2017

Recently visited for our third time! Everything is perfect. If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of life then this is your place. Cabins are pristine...rustic and quaint. Owners have thought of everything. Enjoy a hot tub to relax on your own private porch!!! We always look forward to coming back "home" to Scenic Hill!!!!

It was absolutely Amazing!

5 on September 25, 2017

My other half and I stayed there for our first anniversary together and it was AMAZING! This was my second time staying here and my other half's first. I previously stayed there in 2012 with my mom. We got in the hot tub and enjoyed the beautiful view from the porch! It was so peaceful and quiet. Pure bliss! We fell more deeply in love staying there. We're going to make this an annual trip and will be back next year and every year after.

It was Amazing!

5 on September 25, 2017

My other half and I stayed there for our first anniversary together and it was AMAZING! We Loved it! The Hot Tub was absolutely wonderful the views were so beautiful from the porch! We fell more deeply in love staying there. We're going to

Scenic Hill Vacations

5 on July 31, 2017

What a great place to get away from EVERYTHING! Very quite, beautiful view, sunset amazing! Check yourself in and out, breakfast left in refrigerator to make your own breakfast. Homemade pecan muffins left for a great treat! Would highly recommend this place. We can't wait to go back!

the 1890 Log Cabin

5 on July 31, 2017

the Log cabin was wonderful. They had everything a person would need to complete their stay. As a Extra that have little pecan pie muffins and chocolate cover strawberries in the Refig. as a welcome. We had a wonderful time and loved the place


5 on July 31, 2017

My wife and I stayed the weekend as a romantic getaway. This was the first time just the two of us had gotten away without our kids. The property and atmosphere was just what we needed. Although there other people staying on property, we only saw one other couple as we were walking the trails. This is a must stay at if you want to getaway from all the everyday hustles and bustles! Can't wait until we can come back!

The Oasis

5 on July 25, 2017

Upon arriving at The Oasis for our anniversary, my husband and I were immediately at ease with our choice to stay at Scenic Hills. The cabin was immaculately clean, tastefully decorated, and perfectly secluded. The refrigerator was stocked with breakfast items, making our first morning there so simple. As a business owner, I know how important it is to make your customers feel comfortable and satisfied. We have already recommended Scenic Hills to our friends and family. It was difficult to leave, which makes it easier to go back!

Scenic Hill

5 on June 19, 2017

We enjoyed a weekend getaway at Scenic Hill recently. It was nothing short of amazing! The little house we stayed in was immaculate and every detail was taken care of. We especially enjoyed the jacuzzi and the walking trails around the property. There are many wonderful, easy day trips for those who like history or shopping, but there's also a good chance you won't want to leave Scenic Hill! We will definitely be back.

Fabulous Farmhouse!

5 on June 19, 2017

We had a First Ever First Female Cousin weekend getaway! Accommodations were spotless. Breakfast provided was plentiful, Beds were comfortable. This is the third property of Scenic Hill I have stayed at. All the First Cousins have agreed that we will be booking the Farmhouse again next year,

A wonderful place to get away from the city!

5 on June 13, 2017

Our stay at Scenic Hill was wonderful. It was everything we wanted and more. The attention to detail in all the accommodations was amazing, down to the delicious, fresh baked pecan muffins that were waiting on us! We will definitely be back! Thanks Jim!

Peaceful Getaway!

4.6 on June 12, 2017

My husband and I had a nice, relaxing weekend in the Treehouse. It was decorated very tastefully, it was very clean and included everything we could need. We used the propane grill, the DVD player and played some of the board games--and can't forget the porch swing. Very enjoyable and will definitely go back one day!

Our stay at the Spa Cabin

5 on June 12, 2017

We really enjoyed the peaceful quite country setting at the spa cabin. We will definitely be making another weekend getaway soon.

Stanley Stay

James Stanley Hoping we can stay more for one night at a time during the week.

Wonderful location with great cabins/hot tub

4.0 on April 17, 2017

We have been here for many years and love it every time. We love the Grand Spa because it has lots of room. Love the hot tub, quiet, and it is only 2 hours from where we live. We will be back!


5 on April 17, 2017

Charming, clean and totally relaxing!

We keep coming back

5 on March 25, 2017

We've stayed here so many times the past 5 years we could be well on our way to owning our own cabin. But then that would be a whole lot of work and worry plus we wouldn't have the little pecan muffins you always leave us in the fridge. Ownership would defeat the purpose, so again, "Thanks, Jim, always a pleasure and we'll be back!"


5 on March 20, 2017

This place is just plain awesome. We stayed at the Homestead and it was a perfect weekend. Came here for our 30th anniversary and we couldn't have chosen a better place. Coming back next year. I highly recommended this place


4.8 on March 20, 2017

Jim has a beautiful property and it is very well kept. Perfect place for a romantic getaway or a good old fashion family vacation. If you're looking to get away from technology and enjoy the tranquility of nature, then Scenic Hills in Brenham is the place to go. Definitely go downtown and walk around/explore what they have to offer while you're there and check out a Somerville Lake sunset if you get a chance. Will absolutely be recommending to friends and family. Can't begin to express how much of a pleasure it was to stay here. Thank you, Jim!

Meadows Edge is Sweet

4.6 on March 20, 2017

We will definitely return. Super sweet cottage in the beautiful Washington County

25th Anniversary

5 on March 13, 2017

We could not have asked for anything better than celebrating our 25th anniversary with relaxation and quiet time. It gave us a chance to reconnect without all the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Sitting on the porch swing watching and listening to nature was so peaceful while enjoying a cup of coffee. The innkeeper was just delightful to communicate with and he made us feel right at home. The homemade pecan pie muffins were divine and he is so generous to share the recipe. We will definitely be back to visit.

Beautiful, relaxing getaway!

5 on February 14, 2017

Scenic Hill is now my "go to" spot for relaxation. Beautiful country farmhouse with smaller cottages on the property. Privacy was no issue whatsoever. Every evening was spent relaxing in the hot tub under the stars - no traffic, no sirens - just an occasional cow mooing! Lots of things to do in nearby towns, if you are so inclined - wineries, antiquing, and quaint little restaurants. I gave the "Onsite Dining" a five star rating, only because I didn't have an "N/A" option; the farmhouse and smaller cottages are equipped with kitchens, so the "onsite dining" is cooking it yourself! But that's exactly what I expected. The owners did, however, leave some delicious pecan muffins in the refrigerator - and I saved the recipe! I love this place so much, I'm thinking of having a Christmas gathering here. Just a wonderful experience - plenty of room for kids, lots of open spaces for them to run and play (and disconnect from their phones, DSi, etc.). Looking forward to many visits to come!

THIS is the place to unwind and relax!

Our relaxing weekend at "The Veranda"!

5 on February 13, 2017

We,are so grateful to Jim and his staff for building and designing such a treasure. The moment you arrive at The Veranda you are captivated by all the charm. Look no further if you are looking for a special place to reconnect and be in the country.

Heaven in the country

5 on January 29, 2017

This is a little slice of heaven tucked away in the country. The house was so comfortable. It was decorated rustic Texas to a tee. It was a totally relaxing evening.

Wonderful Getaway

4.4 on January 18, 2017

Perfect place for a relaxing getaway. We stayed at the spa cabin. It was so private, relaxing, everything we needed from massage bed to hot tub. Loved the open view. If your looking for that perfect place for over night or a couple of days this is it. Thanks for the pecan pie muffins they were great. We will definitely be back. Oh, and the chocolate dipped strawberries and box of chocolate was a nice surprise. Thanks again for making our getaway special........

Quaint and cozy log cabin retreat

5 on January 16, 2017

My daughter and I and our two small dogs thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the 1890s log cabin. while there are a number of houses on the property, the log cabin feels secluded. The walk from the parking lot is not as far as it sounds. The cabin living area is cozy with a couch, rocker and gorgeous wood table. The kitchen was well stocked as was the refrigerator. The sleeping loft is large and comfortable although the narrow open back stairs were a little scary for my teen to traverse. Although you feel way out in the country Scenic Hill is conveniently located to grocery and retail shopping on 290. Wish we would have discovered this place years ago.

Peaceful getaway

5 on January 11, 2017

We stayed at the Veranda Cabin at Scenic Hill for my husband's 40th birthday. It was even better than our imagination. Cozy and sweet, with high ceilings and picture windows looking out at trees. It was quiet and private. The decor was nice with wood art and cedar walls...when we walked in, we smelled the wonderful cedar scent. All the amenities provided. Comfortable bed. Loved the jacuzzi tub and the massage table. It was the perfect, peaceful getawa to relax and restore.

Great Time

5 on January 09, 2017

We had a great time. Very relaxing. A short drive from Katy to enjoy the scenic view. Everything we wanted and needed was there.

Rustic Charm

5 on January 03, 2017

My family thoroughly enjoyed our time at Scenic Hill! The grounds are gorgeous and well maintained. Each cabin on the property is unique, secluded and comfortably furnished with full kitchens and spacious rooms. My children enjoyed the cattle ranch, meadows and horse pastures that surround the property--and I loved the scenic vistas and home-baked breakfast treats! The charming town of Benham was a short drive away and offered great antiquing and quaint cafes. We loved ending our days with a brilliant sunset, star gazing and relaxing in our cabin's private hot tub. This is truly a unique and relaxing vacation destination!

Another Great Vacation at Scenic Hill

5 on January 03, 2017

My husband and I have been visiting Scenic Hill for five years now, several times a year. Take a good book or watch a movie and relax in the hot tub under the stars, undisturbed. They provide all the comforts of home, a couple of extras and none of the hassles. They make it easy. (Full kitchen)

Relax and Unwind...

5 on January 02, 2017

I highly recommend Scenic Hills for a relaxing way to spend a few days in the country and unwind! Over the past few years I have visited the cabins and stayed at different ones to enjoy the unique experience that each separate cabin offers. Some cabins have hot tubs! Most are without TV's but there is a DVD player and always movies at each cabin to watch for your enjoyment. I usually rent several to take from Redbox and return them at the HEB in Brenham. Which is an excellent place to purchase any groceries. Don't worry about breakfast though, they provide eggs, sausage, biscuits, jam, butter, coffee, creamer, and sugar. Each cabin has a kitchen, and a grill for cooking outside. There are trails to walk on for your enjoyment and they allow pets! Beaver's Kitchen in Chappell Hill and Nathan's BBQ is a must when you are in town. The innkeeper is VERY helpful and gives you all the privacy or attention that you need. There is a larger cabin for group events and The Farmhouse for large family gatherings or reunions. The cabins are clean and quiet. You will want to spend a special occasion or just a get-a-way with a friend or two to really enjoy the experience.

Great Get Away!

5 on January 01, 2017

Quaint cabin with lots of space and special touches that made it personal :)

The Perfect Honeymoon Spot!

5 on January 01, 2017

Words cannot describe how perfect this place is! It is the Perfect romantic setting! We stayed at the Spa Vistas cabin and it was more than we expected we absolutely loved it! We are happy to say that we were glad to stay two nights here as our first days as Husband and wife! We will definitely be back for our Anniversary!!!!

A Great Peaceful Getaway

5 on December 30, 2016

They thought of everything possible, that you would need. So all you have to do is just show up and relax . Believe me you will NOT be disappointed .The cabins are great for any occasion ( couples , family time or girls getaway.)

Perfect private place to stay!

5 on December 19, 2016

This was our second time to stay with Scenic Hills, it is amazing. The amount of attention to every little detail the owner pays attention to is just awesome. You have privacy, great views, and feel so cozy. We won't stay any other place!


4.0 on December 17, 2016

This place was spotlessly clean. The hot tub was perfect. Loved the front porch and rocking chairs. The mattress was very comfortable. We also really liked the floor plan of the Homestead. Large and very convenient to move around in. Jim, the owner, is very responsive to his guests. He picked up the phone himself every time we called with a request. He's the owner and property manager which makes for great customer service. Highlights of our 2 day stay was watching the neighbor's cows being fed and the hot tub. Brenham is.literally down the road and around the corner which made everything very convenient to get to. We will definitely be back the next time we are in town. Thank you, Jim.

Great Stay

5 on June 05, 2016

Wife and I had a get away weekend. Great experience. Greatly exceeded my expectations. Very private.

Paradise !!!

5 on May 22, 2016

Pure perfection. Far exceeded our expectations. Can't wait for the return.

Outstanding weekend get away!

5 on March 08, 2016

Cabin and surrounding area very clean and manicured. Very private and quiet, the hot tub was perfect after shopping in Round Top all day!

Sweet Serenity

5 on March 02, 2016

What an amazing weekend!! Not only was the meadows edge beautiful, y'all thought about our every need and covered every detail!! It was absolute peace and sweet serenity! Thank you for a wonderful weekend, and the delicious pecan muffins! We look forward to coming back soon. Five Stars!!! John and Dana Swanson

Seven siblings share good times at Scenic Hill

4.8 on October 27, 2015

My six siblings and our spouses spent a very rainy weekend at Scenic Hill. Five couples shared the Farmhouse, and even though having only two bathrooms was a bit scary, we managed very well. The other two couples stayed in the 1890s Cabins and The Treehouse. All 3 properties were well-maintained and well-appointed. Having plenty of towels was wonderful. And the breakfast foods provided made our stay even more enjoyable.

A Weekend to Remember

5 on June 09, 2015

I rented the Farmhouse for a family girls' weekend to get away with my daughter who is soon to be 16. The beautiful cabin was the ideal place for this weekend to remember. Everyone loved the rooms, beds, balconies, and cozy setting and countryside. The little touches, such as the folded towels, shampoo and soap, and yummy breakfast items, were over the top. I was even surprised by how fully stocked the kitchen was with pans, dishes, utensils, etc. My family and I will definitely be back again in the future. This place is such a peaceful and beautiful retreat.

So Relaxing

5 on May 08, 2015

Our first visit to Scenic Hills...Outstanding. When we arrived, we walked on the trail and nestled in the woods was "Spa Cabin". The key was in the door welcoming us...Impressive. Upon entering, we felt the rustic warmth to match the surroundings. Cabin was clean and breakfast was provided. Awesome pecan muffins was the highlight. The Innkeepers were gracious and accommodating. The spa overlooking the meadow set the mood for relaxation from our busy schedule. It was difficult to pack and leave-can't wait to return. Relaxed.....

Scenic Hill - My favorite place!

5 on March 27, 2015

Beautifully decorated and serenely located, Scenic Hill is my favorite place to stay. The cabins are spotlessly clean and well-maintained. The price is a bargain. Breakfast products are awaiting your appetite in the refrigerator. The kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans, flatware, dishes and most anything you may need. The furnishings are are family friendly but are so well maintained that everything seems new. The linens are cozy! My children and I stayed in Hidden Grove. They loved their personal yard - play/bbq/hammock area! There were plenty of board games inside for them to play in the evening. The assortment of DVD's were perfect for the entire family. The bedrooms were huge! The bathrooms were clean and nicely appointed. Loved that we had two of them! The innkeeper provides information for local activities and area attractions. How nice is that? Take a look at their website for full color photos of the cabins. What you see is what you get!! It's just that lovely!!

We are in love with the Treehouse

5 on January 15, 2015

We stayed at the Treehouse two nights after some medical appointments in Houston. It was a wonderful place to relax after all that. It was also an early anniversary trip. The Treehouse was super cute! The breakfast foods were a good choice. Muffins were great. Nice to be able to be on whatever schedule we wanted. We always choose stand alone B&B guesthouses for the privacy. And this one is defintely private!! Loved the front porch. Sadly, it was too chilly to enjoy it much this time but inside the Treehouse was snug and romantic. It's just a beautiful place. We hope to try some of the other cabins but they will have to be really superb to replace the Treehouse as our favorite.

our great escape at Scenic Hills

5 on January 09, 2015

We were looking to escape for my wife's birthday . We did not want to be bothered and yet we wanted a stay that would be memorable . Our cabin was clean , cozy , and extremely comfortable . Thanks Scenic Hills


5 on November 24, 2014

Everything about our stay was wonderful! This is definitely a place we will return to soon.

When I die, if I get to go to heaven, can I go to Scenic Hill instead?

5 on May 19, 2014

This bed and breakfast has the three P's of good bed and breakfasts: Privacy, Personal Touch, and Pretty. I loved that the place is hidden in the trees. You know you have neighbors, but you don't even see them. The front porch has privacy curtains for the hot tub and the swing. I thought I wouldn't like the idea of not getting breakfast prepared, BUT it was nice to be on our own schedule and not on the b and b's. Breakfast fixings were available (great ones). The view was amazing, the cabin was darling (we stayed in the Homestead). We never saw our hosts, but when we managed to get lost (twice), Noruh (I think that was her name) kindly put us back on track. It was peaceful, quiet, restful, everything I needed. I especially appreciated being able to set up a massage and having it in room (I highly recommend Christie Beamon on the site). The only negative I can say is that the king bed downstairs was a little harder than I prefer, but overall I give this a definite five star. I do recommend you follow the directions on the SH website, because your GPS will NOT get you there! Take it from one who stayed lost for about 40 minutes.

Relaxing weekend Getaway!

4.8 on March 24, 2014

My husband and I chose the Oasis to celebrate our first wedding anniversary and we loved it!! We've started at other bed and breakfasts, but this is our new favorite! The cabin was immaculate, full of character, secluded (major bonus!!) And smelled great! We will certainly be returning. Thank you for an awesome weekend!

Oasis in Brenham

5 on March 17, 2014

Dear Jim, I am writing to thank you for having the vision to create such a wonderful and peaceful atmosphere as the Oasis. It is a beautiful little cabin and you designed it perfectly. I just spent three blissful nights there, complete with a nightly massage from Gloria, who is fabulous!!! I assume that most of your guests are couples, but I am a single woman with a demanding job and I just needed some space to breathe. I just returned to Houston, totally rejuvenated and spiritually recharged!! I am already planning my return visit! Again, thank you!!!

Perfect Christmas Gift!

5 on December 23, 2013

I wanted to write and make sure Scenic Hill and Jim get the credit they deserve. I surprised my boyfriend with a weekend away at the Spa Vistas for Christmas. I had heard about the area from a co-worker and after a little research on the cabins decided Spa Vistas had the privacy, size, and amenities that my boyfriend and I would appreciate...I was a little nervous pulling up, hoping he wouldn't find it too much like camping...but after walking up, boy was I spot on! The rustic exterior hides the absolutely charming, CLEAN, and amazing modern-equipped interior. The entrance to the cabin, tower, and porch with hot tub are all on the back side of the house so we felt completely private. We never even saw another human until the last day when we had a surprise visit from a neighbor farms' dog, Wesley, who came to play with our dogs (yes, we brought our dogs along which was also a HUGE plus for us) and that's when we met his owner when she came to retrieve him, and then we met Jim who pulled up as we were leaving (yes we never even met the owner until we were on our way out!). You don't have to check in with anyone, and the idea of a do-it-yourself Bed & Breakfast is absolutely genius. The privacy and relaxation was priceless to us. We adored our visit and we will be back soon, I'm sure of that! Thank you so much Jim!! Chelsea Byers

Clean, Beautiful & Comfortable! Will stay Again!

4.8 on December 08, 2013

I stayed at the Spa Vistas Cabin with my boyfriend for a weekend. In my opinion it is the one that has the most "cabin" feel apart from the Homestead and the Tree House. When I we go again we will stay at the same cabin again. Arriving there was pretty easy, we had no need for contact with the in-keeper, everything we needed was in the cabin. The cabin was completely clean, which is the one thing I am really picky about, everything looked recently clean (the kitchen, bathrooms, floors, bedroom) and there were no clusters of dust anywhere! There was a nice personalized note from the owners and some goodies in the fridge (including everything needed for breakfast & the AMAZING pecan muffins), we had plenty of towels, for the bathroom and the jacuzzi. The only thing is I would have liked if there was a gallon of water, but you can drink the tap water if you don't mind because the fridge has an ice maker, personally I like bottled water or filtered water so we got a gallon from the Wallmart nearby (it's only $1). I thought that the fact that there was plenty of food in the fridge was really thoughtful, there is also everything to make coffee, tea, seasonings, all utensils you need for cooking and bbq, a blender, toaster, wine glasses, EVERYTHING!!! The couch was super comfy & so was the bed. We could hear the cars going by especially during at night but it wasn't a big deal for us. The bathroom is HUGE!!!! There are windows everywhere and very nice lighting that set a very romantic mood in the cabin, all the windows have covers so you can close them if you want! The hot tub is AWESOME! The bed was very comfy and it had a very big window right in front of it. The cabin itself is pretty big!!! and apart from the sky deck accessible friendly! They had a bunch of board games & a pretty nice selection of movies!! We really did fall in love with the cabin! Can't wait to go back!!!!

Scenic Hill Rocks!

My Love & I enjoyed a very relaxing weekend at the Homestead Cabin. We definitely will be back. Memories were made. Looking forward to more! R&C

Simply Heaven is all I have to say!!

5 on December 04, 2013

A great place to get away from the stress of everyday life...The little touches they have added to this place is what set it apart from the rest of the bed and breakfast places we have stayed. the cabin and grounds are simply beautiful...Will tell all my freinds and co-workers about this special retreat.

Amazing Wedding!

5 on November 20, 2013

We had a tiny wedding right in front of the Farmhouse last weekend. It was absolutely beautiful. It was family only and we rented out almost all of the cabins for the weekend. The places are all charming. It is quiet, relaxing and an amazing place to gather with friends and family. We can't wait to go back for our anniversary each year. The muffins and food in the cabins were a hit, and we took advantage of grilling on Friday night. My entire family was raving about how great it was. I can't thank you enough for allowing me to have our wedding there and being so helpful with contacts of local vendors etc.. We can't wait to come back!

We Love Scenic Hills

5 on November 20, 2013

We have stayed at three different cabins and just love going up there. I'm going to plan our forth trip now. The cabins are so clean when we arrive it's very impressive. We really feel safe and enjoy the area.

Cabins Cabins Cabins

5 on October 20, 2013

I have enjoyed staying in all of Jim's cabins except the TreeHouse! I can't climb all those stairs. I have never failed to enjoy myself yet. I have stayed with my God-children and had a "Girls Weekend" at the various cabins and have always had a great time! Jim is always pleasant, there for you when you need something and leaves you alone to enjoy yourself when you don't. I hope to continue to enjoy these cabins in the future! Linda Bates Waco, Tx.


5 on August 04, 2013

Our stay at the oasis was wonderful. It was so great we called my mother in law up to join us for the last night. Everything was thoughtful and wonderful. From the personalized welcome note to the breakfast items in the fridge to just how darn cute the decor was. I can't wait to come back in the fall. Thank you ever One for a great vacation away from the city!!!!!!!!

Girls Get Away

5 on July 11, 2013

We stayed at Scenic Hill cabins during antiques week in the spring and we were blown away! Every last detail was carefully arranged. Jim was so awesome to work with, we can't wait to book our next girls weekend.

Quiet and relaxing

5 on July 01, 2013

My husband and I stayed in the Grand Spa for a weekend/anniversary getaway. It was exactly what we needed to recharge. We have three small children so we only get away once a year and when we do we want a calm and relaxing atmosphere. The Grand Spa surpassed our expectations.

Oasis at Scenic Oaks

4.8 on July 01, 2013

We enjoyed our stay at the Oasis. We were celebrating our 29th anniversary. The cabin was emaculate and beautiful with every detail well thought out. It was tucked away in a quiet, secluded setting with all the needed amenities. Loved the pecan muffins. What a nice surprise. Look forward to returning again sometime! Thank you! J

review of scenic hill- LOG CABIN

5 on June 24, 2013

Outstanding customer service. Incredibly neat and clean! Absolutely fabulous breakfast. Had an excellent stay! Very peaceful. Highly recommend.

Just LOVE Scenic Hill properties!!

5 on June 11, 2013

We've stayed at 4 of the Scenic Hill properties and each time we go, it's an absolutely beautiful place to just get away and relax. The cabins are so well decorated and equipped to feel like a home away from home. They're also absolutely spotless. We will continue to choose Scenic Hill for our weekend retreats from everyday life!

A much needed private retreat

5 on June 11, 2013

There are so many reasons Scenic Hill is my new favorite retreat, but maybe the most important one is that the innkeeper strives to give guests complete privacy. We knew there were others on the property, but we never saw them. He left the key in the door for us so we checked ourselves in and he had supplied the cabin with everything we needed. This is the perfect place for overworked people who need a taste of peace and quiet with ultimate privacy. We'll return as soon as we're able.

Spa Vista - A Place to Reconnect

4.4 on April 29, 2013

The past year was difficult and for our 8 year wedding anniversary we needed to get away. We visited Scenic Hill (Grand Spa) before and it was great, so we decided to visit again. This time we booked the Spa Vista Cabin. This cabin lends itself to relaxation, romance and reconnecting. We enjoyed the night talking on the tower, relaxing in the hot tub and topped off the night with sleeping in the super comfy bed. Awakening to the birds and the sun peeking through the windows is a beautiful way to begin the day. Coffee on the tower, an unhurried, uninterrupted breakfast and a stroll through the property followed by a massage is a perfect way to enjoy each other. Taking the time to read the guest book on the porch and simply soaking up the love that we brought to the cabin and the love there before us was refreshing. I recommend this rustic cabin in the country if you are looking to stop and just be together...remembering why you fell in love in the first place.


5 on January 11, 2013

I was planning my next stay before I even left. I can't believe how quiet and pefect it was. I loved the muffins! It was just what we needed to destress for a weekend. I loved the deer we got to see, and the birds. We stayed at the Oasis and of course it was new when we stayed, so it was the only one in Scenic Oaks at the time. As long as it doesn't get too crowed around it, I will come back because I love the quiet. Thanks Jim!

Treehouse it !

5 on January 01, 2013

My husband and I love The Treehouse ...quite, relaxing, great views, great for couples, amazing getaway, lots of trees, amazing nature sounds, pecan muffins are good , breakfast was great sitting on the lower deck, a walk down the trails so refreshing, animal friendly, private and secluded, and Jim is very nice. Great memories. Love it ...Love it...

Beautiful, peaceful, and quiet

4.6 on December 24, 2012

We stayed in the Oasis for our 30th anniversary celebration. It was fantastic. The cabin is most comfortable, very clean, and in a gorgeous setting. We wanted peace and quiet and we got it! The hot tub was wonderful, we learned to play was more like staying at a home than a hotel. Thank you so much.

Very well managed

4.8 on December 11, 2012

The attention to detail was exceptional. All the way from the personalized greeting letter to the thoughtfulness of the breakfast items in the fridge. Every thing you could think of was already there. Even the suggestion sheet explaining favorite places to eat in town was very helpfull. I will deffinately be staying here again. Look forward to checking out the wide variety of cabins within Scenic Hill.

A Slice of Heaven!

5 on September 30, 2012

The 1890's log cabin was absolutely perfect! When we stepped through the door, it was as if we'd stepped back in time! The owners of this property have transformed it into a beautiful oasis...there are 7 cabins here, but not one entire cabin can be seen from another as Jim & Tim have left total coverage trees, plants, etc between each one, which gives it such a secluded, peaceful feel! We loved our stay and WILL be back! Thank you both for this beautiful, peaceful place well within traveling distance to many desirable destinations, Brenham, Washington, Round Top, etc.

An Easy Getaway

5 on August 18, 2012

Jim, Just a quick note to let you know what a great time we had last week in the Spa Cabin. First of all, we vacation twice a year and then take several long weekends to help unwind. Historically those 2-3 night trips have been down at the beach, but quite frankly the riff-raff at the beach has gotten out of hand. Anyway, just this year we found out about Shakespeare at Winedale which led us to you and oh what wonderful trip we had! A rustic cabin with all the comforts of home and a hot tub on the porch over looking open fields made a couple of nights feel like a full week. It was spit clean, quiet, private, comfortable and most importantly – it was easy. We both relaxed enough to read a book. Normally it takes me a couple of days to chill out before I can even begin to read. So to hell with the traffic and sand. Our perfect getaway is just over an hour from Spring Texas. We’ll be back! Thank you. A. Marks P.S. I am rating the dining and service because I have to in order to finish this survey. So the breakfast you provide us by leaving it in the refrigerator was most welcomed and the service so good we didn't have to call for it! All taken care of in advance.

So romantic!!!

5 on August 14, 2012

We loved our time at Scenic Hill Vacations! Our cabin had a hot tub, massage table, super clean with 5 star fixtures, etc. Our only regret was that we did not stay longer! We will be back!

Great Weekend at the Farm House

5 on August 13, 2012

A few of my female family members and I stayed at the Farm House and attended the Lavender Festival/Winery Tour this past weekend (8-10-12). The Farm House was wonderful - the hot tub was relaxing, the house roomy and cozy and the view from the porch was awesome! The breakfast items that are there for the guests are amazing, Jim thinks of everything needed. My relatives were impressed that you do not need to bring anything but your suitcase because this house is fully equipped with everything you need. We have decided we want to stay in each of the cabins so we will be making many trips back to Scenic Hills Vacations!

Peacefully private!!!

5 on July 04, 2012

Scenic Hill provided exactly what was advertised. Our cabin was immaculately clean, well stocked, and private. The innkeeper's thoughtful tips and suggestions made our stay thoroughly enjoyable. We're already planning a return trip!! R&J Mayer


5 on June 18, 2012


At the top of our B & B list!

5 on June 03, 2012

We were looking for a romantic getaway in the country & Scenic Hill delivered! The Spa Vistas cabin was clean, spacious, private & romantic! The 1850's cabin took us back in time, yet we had modern conveniences available to us. The decor was nicely done, offering the appropriate amount of charm without clutter. The observation deck, set amongst the treetops, was wonderful for watching the sunset & was a fantastic place to spend time on a full moonlit evening! We felt secluded & like we could really relax. We are looking forward to checking out the other cabins that Scenic Hill has to offer!

Awesome Experience

5 on May 29, 2012

We dined with owls (really). We were totally isolated. It was the most peaceful weekend I've spent in ages. I totally recommend this place.

Mid Week Reprieve

5 on May 24, 2012

I spent one night in the Spa Cabin mid-week while traveling and found this to be a wonderful escape from the pressures of the week. Seldom in recent past have I slept more than 7 hours - and here I couldn't believe it when I saw from the clock I had an unterrupted sleep of 9.5 hours! I was happy with the home made muffins with coffee and then resumed my trip well refreshed and ready to face life's challenges!

Private and Quiet

4.8 on May 16, 2012

Very private. The innkeeper doesns't visit unless you contact him that you need someting. Having stayed somewhere else where the innkeeper daily "checked on" us, we really liked the privacy we wanted. Beautiful area. Being able to bring the dogs was an added bonus.

Super Super Excellent

5 on May 08, 2012

My wife & I celebrated our 20th anniversary in the Spa Cabin for 3 days. It was super excellent!!!!! Very private, inside and out! Very quit! Very comfortable beds, chairs, couch! Excellent spa table! The hot tub was superb and private, though outside on the porch!! I highly recommend this place to everyone! It was more than worth every penny! Service was also very excellent! Tom

Serene & Peaceful!

4.4 on April 11, 2012

We stayed in the Homestead Cabin. So quiet. The porch over looks a pasture and big oak trees. It was so soothing to get up in the morning, have a cup of coffee on the porch and listen to the cattle calling out. The cardinals were busy singing along. Jim is always there to help in any way he can, also had the refrigerator stocked with fresh eggs and other breakfast goodies. I highly recommend Scenic Hill for a quiet country stay!

Scenic Hill Vacations Review

5 on March 13, 2012

The whole experience was fabulous at Scenic Hill Vacations. Excellent attention to detail. Immaculate cabin. Peaceful and private setting. Check in and check out made simple and easy. We were extremely pleased with our experience there and plan to return and make Scenic Hill Vacations our own little "get away " spot . ( And LOVED the ability to bring our family dog )

This is the place to go.

5 on January 15, 2012

Great service, nice room set up, perfect for that romantic getaway. My husband just got back from deployment and this was the perfect way to get back in touch with one another. :) Sitting out in the hot tub watching the sun set, it was perfect. If you are looking for a bed in breakfast with privacy and a unique experience this is the place to go.

Amazing secluded getaway

5 on January 02, 2012

This private cottage was a beautiful oasis in the middle of beautiful countryside. I couldn't ask for anything more when looking for a place to relax and rekindle romance. From the hot tub on the front porch to the massage table inside, you are bound to ignite sparks every step of the way . We will definitely come back every year, they really make u feel at home and we had the place to ourselves with breakfast items left in the fridge for us to prepare as we pleased

Two days was not enough!

4.6 on December 04, 2011

Fantastic place.. The location is great.. about 8 miles outside of Brenham in the country.. You feel like you are even farther (no city lights to hide the stars) yet in 10 minutes you are in town if you need something. We chose the Grand Spa and we were not disappointed....The cabin is amazing.. It was simply beautiful.. I cannot describe how great it was. I would say the hot tub was our favorite though.. On a chilly evening overlooking the rolling hills of the pasture behind the cabin we did not want to ever get out. The owners do a great job of not being seen to enhance your seclusion.. Everything was just perfectly easy... From the maps of the property in the little wooden boxes at the entry gates, to the staples in the cottage. There were biscuits and eggs, sausage, orange juice, cinnamon rolls, pecan muffins.. even a little jar of chocolates. It was really nice.. It felt more like somewhere you already lived than it did somewhere you were staying a few nights. The stockpile of games and DVD's to keep us entertained if we needed... Like the dart board.. We had never played darts before but found ourselves playing 301 for hours and we loved it.. It is the things like that.. the little things... the games the massage lotion and table... the stocked fridge, the note when we arrived with our names on us welcoming us there. The pet friendly policy is great thing as well. We love our doggies and they travel everywhere with us.. Though I think next time we visit we will have to leave them with grandma so the wife and I can go explore the surrounding towns a bit more.

A Little Bit of Heaven

5 on November 29, 2011

We have stayed at Scenic Hill two times and plan many more visits to this Bed and Breakfast. It is the perfect get a away from the stress of life. You have the peace and quiet of the country, the beautifully decorated inn, a hot tub of your very own, and the BEST pecan pie muffins you will ever taste. This alone is worth coming for a stay but the very best part of the stay is the peacefulness of the place. You feel truly alone and have time to unwind with the one you love. Take a lesirually stroll around the bed and breakfast, sit in your hot tub and watch the stars, or sit on the porch and read, no matter what you chose to do with your time, you won't find a better place to do this than at Scenic Hill Bed and Breakfast.

Thumbs Way Up for Scenic Hill Spa Cabin

5 on October 24, 2011

I booked the Spa cabin as a surprise weekend getaway for my wife. This could have been a disaster. No one I know had heard of the place, so I had to trust Google. Oh sure, Scenic Hill had a flashy and friendly website. The pictures of the Cabin looked nice but was it really what it was advertised to be? YES YES YES and more! The place is just awesome. The cabin was very clean, nicely decorated and all the amenities one could hope for. Each cabin is isolated from each other if you want it to be. Very quiet and peaceful surroundings. It is only a hop skip and a jump away from Brenham and other quaint cities in Washington County. I would highly recommend Scenic Hill for a nice, romantic quite getaway. We will definitely return.

country get away we needed !

4.8 on August 25, 2011

we arrived on thur early afternoon room house was cool, clean and stocked with everything from tp / towels / soap / dishes / coffee / cleaning supplies / and fridge had full stocking of breakfast item for next morning ! and bye the way the home made pecan muffins are AWSOME ! room had a very comfortable king bed comfortable couch rocking chair and dinning table. porch had swing and table with chairs. we went in aug. but with the fan on porch and being up in trees ( with nice veiw ) it was very comfortable to sit and swing just me and my lovly wife. this was our get away before our three kids went back to school.

Cute little treehouse.

4.2 on July 24, 2011

Fun place to spend a quite week-end. Already referred my best friend. Go to Brenham for resturants. Breakfast items in your room were a super nice way to start the morning. The owner is very pleasant and friendly.

Tree House Perfection

5 on July 18, 2011

We stayed in the treehouse and LOVED it!! Beautiful views, peaceful setting, and wonderful accommodations. Enjoyed our little getaway and celebrating the close of a hard first year of marriage as well as my husband's birthday. We look forward to returning in the future ad maybe trying other cabins!! You'll love it!!


5 on July 11, 2011

What else is there to say. Everything is thought out and provided. The Spa Cabin was perfect for our romantic getaway. The decor, the view and the hot tub were exactly what we needed to relax and get away. We will be returning very soon!

What a Weekend!

4.4 on May 31, 2011

We stayed in the Oasis cabin. It was wonderful, and a pleasent surprise. The cabins was as described, however it was even better then we had planned for. The pecan muffins were yummy, and the grounds and hammock were quite wonderful as well. It was a great experiance and we have no complaints! We will be back!

Ultimate Relaxation

5 on May 08, 2011

My husband and I just returned home from our stay in the Spa Cabin.... there aren't words for how much we truly enjoyed our stay. Even though we had only one night to escape the chaos of raising three little boys, in this cabin we found what we needed. Everything is thought of for you... you literally just have to show up, kick your shoes off, and hop in the hot tub. Breakfast is even in the fridge for whenever you may want it. If you need a recharge of spirit or romance, this is the place to find it! We came to the Spa Cabin weary and in desperate need of respite, and then left the next day recharged, relaxed, and more in love than before.


4.8 on April 04, 2011

I had a birthday weekend away from home in the Homestead Cabin. Really, really, clean. Awesome quiet! Awesome views, birds, quiet, hot tub, and did I say quiet? No one bothered us. We just relaxed, and it was one of the best weekends I have had in a long time. Thank you!

The Oasis

4.8 on March 14, 2011

My wife and I recently stayed at the new Scenic Hill property, The Oasis. The name is fitting. Tucked away along a back country road, The Oasis was everything we were hoping for. The cabin itself is beautiful and open and filled with brilliant natural light. We were hardly even unpacked before we jumped into the hot tub to officially start our vacation. We were there celebrating our anniversary and being at a location that offered so much privacy and seclusion was exactly what we were hoping for. Eventually, we made our way down the main path to the open area of Oak trees. Jim provides outdoor games for the guests as well as 2 picnic tables, a bench under a tree that allows for a great view of the sunrise, a small table and chair set and two hammocks for relaxing pleasure. The Oasis is very conveniently located to Brenham and only takes a few minutes to get into town. We didn't spend a ton of time in the city, but were easily able to find a grocery store and the Blue Bell Creamery (we did the factory tour) and Jim provides area guides for other entertainment and dining options a short drive from the cabin. My wife surprised me with a couples massage and we used the suggested person from Scenic Hill. She was on time, friendly, professional and gave a great massage. Very reasonably priced for the quality and the ease of having the massage therapist come to you, as Jim provides a professional massage table, surrounded by windows and natural light, right in the cabin. The cabin itself is a nice mixture of new elegance and rustic decor. I know that my wife came away wanting a new kitchen sink, faucets and a new shower stall at our home! Jim was attentive to our needs without infringing on our privacy and it's obvious that he doesn't want his guests being disturbed. We've stayed with Scenic Hill before and we will definitely stay with Scenic Hill again. Thanks Jim for helping to make our anniversary such a wonderful experience! Scott and Cathy

Most Wonderful Place to have a romantic Getaway!

5 on February 14, 2011

I loved this place, we stayed in Spa Vistas, it was wonderful, so gorgeous. I loved the views, the interior decorations. They had everything you need to enjoy your stay there. I would recommend Scenic Hill to everyone. It is a must for a couple relaxing getaway. The area guides provided are wonderful, we based our day on the area guide, and we loved how there was directions from our cabin to everyone in the guide. We enjoyed the weekend very much and will be coming back!


5 on February 14, 2011

Jim--Tim and I had the best time staying at the Homestead Cabin. It was beautiful and quiet, a perfect Valentine's weekend. You have out done yourself on service. It was so nice to be in such a beautiful Cabin and the setting was perfect. (loved the cows at night) :).The people in Brenham are fantastic and the food was awesome, including the muffins in the fridge. We will be back again and hated to leave. God Bless you.

Wonderful getaway

5 on December 05, 2010

The cabin was beautiful! Very private and cozy. Well-decorated and comfortable. Hot tub was refreshing and well-maintained. Innkeeper was attentive to our needs. Great view from the cabin porch. Love it and plan to return as soon as possible! Silva M. Texas

Dreams only last one nite, but memories last a life time

4.6 on December 05, 2010

As my wife told me I would be in charge of making her birthday a weekend she would never forget I was a little worried. With most passing years, she wants to celebrate it for the whole month, so I figured I could handle one weekend, with no worries, Right ? And I must say with the help of Jim Rolewicz, and The Scenic Hill Resorts, the weekend was awsome. From the time we pulled up to the driveway to the time we left, we couldn't get enough of each other. This place blew us away for such a place this close to home. Couldn't have asked for anything more.... but more time! The Spa Vista is so cozy and decorated perfectly! The smell of cedar fills the air while plush white towels make you feel like you are at a 5 star hotel....oh, and that bed is to die for! Haven't slept so good in years. Would recommend this place to anyone looking for a place and or reason to rekindle some flames that might be on the verge of burning out. Thanks Jim from the bottom of our hearts (Kim and Donald ) you gave us new meaning to the word "Forever" Donald and Kim Barnett

happy 25th anniversary

5 on November 18, 2010

1890's Log Cabin

5 on November 15, 2010

My husband and I could not have been more pleased with our stay in the 1890's cabin! It is absolutely beautiful! The attention to detail is amazing and we did NOT want to leave! The muffins in the fridge are delicious :) Thank you Scenic Hill for such beautiful and serene accommodations.

Perfect Getaway

4.6 on October 25, 2010

The spa cabin was the perfect cabin for a quiet getaway from the world. It's nestled in the woods with a picturesque view of a field with rolling hills. It was roomy and quiet, well structured and clean. The bed was comfortable and restful. I wish I could have stayed longer.

Perfect Weekend

5 on October 23, 2010

We spend a long weekend in the Homestead cabin. It was absolutely perfect. We loved the grounds and enjoyed walking the trail. The cabin was amazing and more than we ever could have expected. We are already talking about when we can get away and come back. We would encourage anyone to visit and enjoy the view, the cabin, and the hot tub.

A Texas style vacation spot!

4.0 on September 11, 2010

Was the Spa Vistas cabin beautiful, clean, decorated to a T, spacious and perfect for two? Yes much so that when we met Jim, we asked if we could copy this cabin for our MT cabin next year! Your establisnment exceeded our expectations Jim...but you do not have a bullett for "exceptional"!! And having a tropical storm over the premises over Labor Day at n/c made it just that much more cozy! Thank you Jim...we have already told everyone and will continue to praise Scenic Hill Vacations... Warmest regards... Glenn & Annie LA & TX

Awesome Anniversary Getaway

4.0 on August 31, 2010

My husband and I went for our 5th anniversary. We live in Houston and were wanting something nice and quiet and I found Scenic Hill on the internet. It was the perfect location, only a little over an hour from home. When we arrived at our cabin it was so awesome! Very private with lots of trees surrounding us. We stayed in the Grand Spa and my expectations were enormously exceeded. Everything was extremely well taken care of. All of the furniture was nice, the entire cabin was spotlessly clean, and it was decorated super cute too! We had lots of room but it wasn't too big and one of the best parts was that we got to bring our dogs who are like my children! The other best part was the awesome hot tub! We were completely secluded in the country and the hot tub was so clean and nice that I was so glad we got a semi-cool evening to enjoy it! The kitchen was so nice with anything you could have wanted as far as glassware, cookware, dishware. Also the appliances were all updated and nice. The bathroom was so nicely updated as well. I could not have asked for a more romantic and perfect stay! We will definitely be going back on our next weekend getaway!

Wonderful Relaxing Weekend Getaway!

5 on August 24, 2010

My husband and I recently stayed at The Farmhouse with another couple. We were only 45 min away from our home, but it felt like we were in another country! The views are amazing! We ate breakfast, lunch, and dinner on the deck everyday, and enjoyed the hot tub at night. We played horseshoes and relaxed on the hammocks. It was an unbelievably relaxing time. We are planning another trip very soon!

Our 10th

4.2 on August 21, 2010

My wife and I stayed in the Spa Vistas cabin for our 10th Anniversary. We had such a relaxing time, we couldn't have asked for more. Thank you Jim, for creating such a peaceful atmosphere.

Our second visit

4.4 on August 16, 2010

My husband and I just recently had our 2nd visit to Scenic Hill. It is absolutely wonderful. The first visit we did some sight seeing and visited places in Brenham which was great, but this time we never left the cabin. It was amazing. Just being able to do what we wanted to without considering anyone else is great. The cabins are just great and they are secluded from one another. We will definately go back and I recommend it to anyone!

The perfect getaway

4.8 on August 09, 2010

Scenic Hill is a peaceful, beautiful place to spend a vacation. It is also close to some of the most interesting places to visit in Texas, Brenham, Round Top, Winedale and many other historical and scenic areas. I highly recommend it.

Romantic cabin

It was the perfect place to celebrate our 12th wedding anniversary and the first trip the two of us have had without our children in 4 years. Everything beat our expectations - the view was great, the privacy & hot tub were terrific and the rooms were perfect! Would definitely recommend this to any couple who is looking for a romantic & private cabin!

1890s Cabin

4.4 on July 18, 2010

A perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of busy city life. The cabin had beautiful views of the bordering ranch. The bed was extremely comfortable, and our weekend was very relaxing. A wide variety of games to play and DVDs to watch. The breakfast items provided were a nice touch.

A Perfect Visit

5 on July 12, 2010

We stayed at the log cabin, from 1890. What a treat! It's beautifully historic and still roomy, clean and air conditioned! And you get to see great views from each window; some over meadows, some into the trees, everything green. This was a wonderful experience for moth of us, and lots to do in Brenham and surroundings. We got to to see the July Fourth parade in Round Top. All was good, the bed large and comfortable, great shower, stocked fridge, microwave, dvd player -- something for everyone.

I arrived slightly early and they had just finished cleaning the room. They were very friendly and helpfull. I will recommend Scenic Hill to anyone looking for a vacation.

Serene and secluded

3.6 on July 06, 2010

I enjoyed the privacy and quiet. Plenty of breakfast items--biscuits, eggs, sausage, sweet rolls, muffins, oatmeal packets, juice--were placed in our refrigerator and left for us to decide how to fix them and how much. We actually had an extra meal because of the quanitity of food. The furnishings were very attractive and the scenery was the best--lots of trees which I love.

Great way to spend some quiet time

4.8 on July 04, 2010

The 1890"s cabin was a wonderful place to spend some quiet time and get away from our hectic lives. This is the second time we have been there to celebrate our anniversary. The place is clean, neat and perfect. The pecan muffins are a wonderful treat. I know we will be visiting again!!

Spa Vistas

5 on June 26, 2010

We loved the privacy and the scenic surroundings. Waking up to birds singing was a treat. The care in building this cabin was obvious. The cabin was spacious with a wonderful bathroom-separate large shower and double sink areas, a separate bedroom, and a large living area that included a kitchen [with snacks and wonderful breakfast foods: the mini pecan muffins were delish!], and dining area. With the large surrounding windows we felt like we were secluded from the outside world. Outside there is a hot tub and the high viewing area build along side the cabin.


4.0 on June 07, 2010

I enjoyed a relaxing time at the 1890's cabin. An authentic rustic cabin, with so much thought put into each detail. It was like stepping back in history, yet with modern amenities. I thoroughly enjoyed the front porch swing, while listening to the breeze blowing thru the trees. The cabin was clean and comfortable. Can't wait to return for a future visit!

Romantic and Relaxing Getaway

5 on June 02, 2010

We stayed at the 1890's cabin for three nights. Incredibly clean, cozy, and comfortable. Sleep in late in the wonderful king-sized bed, then get lost on the hammock reading a book with a cup of coffee and those wonderful muffins. The only down side of your experience will be when you realize you have to leave.

Anniversary at Scenic Hill

5 on May 29, 2010

The cabin was so cute with complete seclusion, except the cows kept watching us. We enjoyed the spa, movies, reading, and our shopping in town. I would highly recommend this as a great couple get away. The cabin is very clean with everything you need.

Scenic Hills - Greatest Birthday Weekend

4.0 on May 24, 2010

Being spontaneous I called at the last minute and Jim had a cabin available for my birthday weekend. We thoroughly enjoyed the accomodations. Although the pictures are very inviting you just can't get the full picture of how accomodating everything is until you walk onto the property. Serene and quiet away from the hussle and bussle of every day life.

Scenic Hill 1890 Log Cabin

4.8 on May 20, 2010

We had a wonderful visit. It was so relaxing. The cabin and surrounding area were beautiful. Scenic Hill was superburb! Our only regret, that we didn't stay longer. We will definitely be back!!! Thank you, Jim.

Great First Anniversary Getaway!!!

5 on May 16, 2010

My husband and I needed a place to celebrate our first anniversary that was local and private. Not only is my husband leaving for training with the Army right before our anniversary, but I am due with our first child on our anniversary. I found Scenic Hill on this website and was thrilled that it was even greater than I hoped. The innkeeper takes great care of the place and makes sure it has a welcoming feel to it which can truly relax you in today's stressful world. This place is absolutely perfect for a romantic getaway!

Scenic Hill Treehouse

4.4 on May 07, 2010

This was an amazing clean and sanitary. Jim was very accomodating and helpful with placed to visit. True Blue Texas southern hospitality. All furnishing made it feel like home. Every last comfort was provided. We did not have to ask for was already in the house. So beautiful...the view and the property. Will come back here again and again.

Our Stay at Spa Vistas

4.8 on May 03, 2010

The cabin is gorgeous inside and out. Everything was spotless - probably cleaner than most hotels I've stayed in. When you walk in the door the first thing you'll notice is the lovely smell of cedar followed by the decor. The kitchen is stocked with all the necessities and they are all of good quality. There are plenty of plates, bowls, glasses, wine glasses, flatware and cookware. The fridge has basic condiments in addition to the breakfast fixn's provided by the Innkeeper. The bathroom has plenty of towels for two people and they even provide two beach towels for when you use the hot tub. Bring your own toilettetries (soap, shampoo, conditioner, lotion, etc.) They do provide a nice hair-dryer and iron. Be advised that there is no cable or internet. They provide some movies, but the selection is limited. The hot-tub is spotless and wonderful. The picture of view off the front porch is not representative of the view now. The surrounding trees are over-grown to the point where you do not have a view of the rolling-hills. Your view from the private observation deck is also very limited to the over-growth. Also, the outside seating is limited and not terribly comfortable on both the front porch and observation deck. You may want to bring some comfy lawn chairs and loungers. Also, the only place to eat outside is a picknic table down on the lawn. It's surrounded by rocks and, of course, as mentioned earlier, not much of a view. If you have a travel table, it would make the observation deck a PERFECT place to enjoy meals outside. It's a beautiful place that is perfect for relaxation. We can't wait to go back.

Innkeeper Response
Thank your for your feedback, and we’re thrilled that you had a wonderful time! We are always looking for ways to improve Scenic Hill. We have given the Spa Vistas a “haircut”, cutting back some of the lush growth that has popped out recently. We strive to find a balance between the privacy that the surrounding woods provide, and having views into the beautiful ranchland that lies beyond. We have re-graveled the private picnic area in front of the Spa Vistas, which is a great place for having a picnic in the woods. We have also recently upgraded our selection of Shampoos and Soaps that we put out in the cabins. We think our guests will enjoy these new top-of-the line toiletries. Thanks again for this great feedback, and we look forward to your return to Scenic Hill!

A magical getaway

This is a perfect place to go when you need peace and quiet and relaxation. It's our favorite getaway!!!

Ladies Weekend Get Away

3.6 on April 20, 2010

Our stay at Scenic Hill was very relaxing. The quietness and peacefulness is just what we needed coming from hustle and bustle of busy lives. The Farmhouse is very roomy and accomodated us well. The kitchen was stocked with complimentary breakfast items including those wonderful homemade muffins. The hospitality provided by Jim was exceptional. Enjoyed the experience over staying at a hotel! Easy access to Hwy 290 but secluded away from everything!

I will be back

5 on April 16, 2010

Imagine leaving behind the rat race of the concrete city for the peaceful solitude of the green hill country to arrive at a quaint country log cabin and you have the settings for Scenic Hills. As a working woman in the corporate world, I have found Scenic Hills to be the PERFECT place to go, relax and get away from it all. The quaint cabins are nestled in the trees and one of my favorite things to do in the morning was to fix a cup of coffee and take it on the front porch swing to enjoy the morning air. The cabins contain full kitchens and on my last stay, we cooked supper there and enjoyed it on our picnic table while watching the cows stroll by in the neighboring field. Sleeping is never a problem with all of the quiet surroundings and comfortable beds. There are TV's with DVD players located in the loft with games for entertainment, and the location is close to Brenham and Chappell Hill where there are many things to see and do. This last time, my cabin had a hot tub on the porch which I enjoyed to the max! Not to forget...the picture windows. I watch a Cardinal sing for the first time in my life through one of those windows. Coming from the city, we don't see much of that going on. I can't think of anything that could be added to the cabin that would make it any better than what it is. It was perfect. I've stayed in many bed and breakfasts and have found that most are very quaint and pretty. but Scenic Hills offers all of that and much, much more. I recommend it to everyone who truly wants to get away from it all.

Muffins from Heaven

5 on April 15, 2010

The very best part of our stay was eating those heavenly muffins on the balcony with a concert of birds singing in the trees. Next best, sleeping 2 hours in the hammock! Oh, the peace and quite.

Wonderful Stay

5 on April 12, 2010

We had a wonderful experience at this B&B. We stayed in the Spa Cabin with our 22 month old. The cabin is right next to a pasture and the cows would come right up to the fence, our son loved it. There is a walking path that is very nice and you can walk around the entire property. The cabin had everything we needed for a perfect stay. We will be back. We come to Brenham every year to take our older son to Camp for All.

Grand Spa Retreat

We stayed at Scenic Hill when we went to Round Top to do some good junking & we want to stay there every time now! Great place!

Our favorite get-away!

5 on April 08, 2010

This was our fourth trip staying at Scenic Hills. Jim's cabins are wonderful and beds provide the best night's sleep ever. We've stayed in four different cabins and hope to return in the fall for the antique's fair with our whole family (10 of us). Scenic Hills is easy to get to - not too far from everything that's going on but far enough out in the country to really enjoy the nature and peacefulness of it all. Close to the main road but traffic never bothered us. We will definitely return many times!

Simplicity at its finest...

5 on April 05, 2010

We spent three nights at the 1890's log cabin at Scenic Hill while attending the Antique Fair at Round Top and the surrounding area. At first sight it was like stepping back to a simplier way of life. My husband being a history buff was intrigued by the construction of the cabin. We were looking for a peaceful quiet place to relax and enjoy each other's company and that is exactly what we found at Scenic Hill. The modern kitchen gave us the opportunity to prepare meals and enjoy them on the upper balcony or at the quaint kitchen table. We could look out over the trees to the pasture below and enjoy the wild flowers. We walked the property across the bridge to the other cabins and listened to the birds, laid in the hammock, had coffee and those "secret recipe" muffins on the front porch. The upstairs loft bedroom had the most comfortable bed and linens. After the crowds at the antique shows in the daytime it was nice to hear the sounds of nature and spend time with each other. The board games, cards, and puzzles reminded us of spending time at camp or our grandparents home where there was no tv for entertainment, though the tv and dvds were available at the cabin for late night viewing. Everything was exactly as shown on the website. The cleanliness and attention to detail made it perfect...We will definitely tell friends and family to call Jim when staying in this area and are already planning a return trip ourselves. Thanks again was perfect. Jack and Susan H.

Year one getaway!

We spent our 20th anniversary at the Spa Cabin and had an amazing time. We enjoyed everything about it and will definitely be going back again soon! The privacy, beautiful scenery, comfy/cozy decor, and attention to detail make this the ultimate place to relax and unwind! We loved the hot tub and pecan muffins! I am already recommending Scenic Hill to everyone I know.

Great escape!!! Peaceful and beautiful views. Look forward to going back for another stay.

Rustic Elegance at its Finest!

5 on March 25, 2010

A perfect hide-a-way with superior attention to every detail. Cabins were scattered amidst a winding pebble-path for privacy and charm. The artistic bridge enhanced the ambience of the authentic cabins.

Romantic Get-away

4.4 on March 21, 2010

My wife and I spent three romantic days in celebration of our 11th anniversary. The cabin was very nice. We enjoyed both the hot tub and the massage table. You need to visit Round Top when you stay here. We dined at JW's Steakhouse in Carmine, and unexpected delight in such a small town.

Homestead cabin at Scenic Hill

Perfect get away for a worn out Houston couple. Everything was great!

Scenic Hill - Great Getaway

5 on March 17, 2010

Spent a day at the Spa Cabin. Loved the attention to detail in everything from the cabin itself to the decorating scheme. Obviously, a lot of attention was put into the planning and layout for the cabin. My wife and I absolutely loved the rustic charm of the cabin, its setting, and the relaxing time spent in the hot tub. We're already talking about returning and having an extended family weekend get-together at Scenic Hill.

2 Day Relaxing Getaway

4.4 on July 07, 2009

My boyfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed our two day getaway in the Homestead Cabin. It was very clean, comfortable and the perfect environment to just relax!!

Just what the DR ordered!!!!!

5 on May 31, 2009

Absolutely Fabulous place to unwind. No TV, No Phones, No Computer - just each other, the rustic surroundings, lots of privacy and the beautiful views of the countryside. I'm going to recommend Scenic Hills to everyone I know and I will probably set my kids a reservation and babysit for them so they can get away and relax. We cannot wait until October when we return to try a different cabin and have fun at the antique shows. I give Scenic Hills A++++++++ LOVED IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Can't wait to return!!

5 on August 27, 2008

What an amazing find! Stayed here for our honeymoon weekend. The Spa cabin was absolutely perfect! The owner gives complete attention to detail, and the place was SPARKLING clean. What a beautiful, completely private and relaxing setting. The "do it yourself" breakfast lends itself to a lazy morning and total privacy. We felt like we were the only people around for miles! We are counting the days until we return in the fall.....

Very Romantic

5 on July 24, 2008

We stayed in the "SPA" cabin complete with massage table! It was wonderful. The room was very clean too. I would love to go back again!

The Treehouse is outstanding!!!

4.4 on July 01, 2008

What a charming cabin. We enjoyed the porch and the swing as well as the exceptionally comfy bed!

Comfy and Calming

5 on June 18, 2008

We had a wonderful experience at Scenic Hill. The Innkeeper is sensitive to every detail and provides a private and cozy getaway for couples and families. The rustic setting and breakfast goodies to fix yourself were wonderful. What a retreat!

Stay here!

5 on April 02, 2007

Met my sister for the weekend and stayed in the log cabin. I feel like I had a two week vacation rather than just two days. What a wonderful place. Lots of attention to detail - comfortable cozy furniture, nice linens, special lotion, to die for muffins, quiet solitude. I would recommend it to anyone, couples, families, family reunions... I plan to return as offen as possible.
