Vow Renewal

5 on June 09, 2017

My husband and I truly enjoyed this beautiful place last weekend. We are originally from Europe - Republic of Latvia, and we chose this place because it reminded us of our beautiful country. Deb and Don truly exceeded our best expectations, as they treated us as a family. Pastor Don performed truly meaningful Vow Renewal ceremony for us. Deb made the most wonderful, fragrant flower arrangement to go with my dress, took beautiful high-quality photos, and their daughter baked a special cake for us as a bonus. After the ceremony they served us a feast of delectable meats and wine. Their breakfasts are out of this world too, as they are made form their own farm-fresh ingredients. As you walk the beautiful acres of the property you can actually see the hens who laid eggs for your breakfast. All of their cottages are beautiful. We chose the Wildrose Retreat. It was incredibly romantic and rustic, while at the same time provided most wonderful conveniences such as private, modern hot tub outdoors and huge "retro style" bathtub & walls decked with mirrors. As we sat in out hot tub outside at night, gazing at the stars, time ceased to exist. On a top of it all God sent us a phenomena called a "moonbow". It is a rainbow circle around the moon. We have never seen one in our lives, and will probably never seen it again. Be on the lookout, because at this place amazing things DO happen.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for you review. Wow, I am elated you enjoyed everything so much. And the Moonbow, was a special touch just for you all sent by God. Hope to see you again. Deb

Our Elopement

5 on January 04, 2017

We arrived to a spectacular cottage that was prepared and waiting for US! The attention to detail during the stay was amazing. Everything was in it's place and the privacy provided for us was unmatched. We will definitely be returning for additional visits just for the location, atmosphere, value and hospitality. The room served meals were excellent, and served piping hot. You will not find a better getaway than this.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your review, it makes my heart happy to see that you were so please with all we offer to our guest. We do hope you will come again to stay. Deb

Great stay

4.8 on November 10, 2016

Very relaxing stay and the food was excellent! The only reason I didn't give 5 stars for the value was that although the massages were relaxing, the massage therapist did not work on the areas requested and the pressure was very light.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your honest review, we will be sure and share the info with the therapist. We do hope you will come again. deb

Happy Couple

4.6 on October 31, 2016

My husband and I where married there last Saturday. It was absolutely the most beautiful wedding that I could have ever imagined. We planed this keeping in mind we wanted a very small outdoor wedding, bonus The Hill Country is our favorite place! My husband I where just blown away with the hospitality of Mr. Don & Mrs. Deb, they are so sweet and accommodating to us and our family. The breakfast was wonderful and there isn't a far drive to town for a steak dinner! All in all it was perfect! My husband really enjoyed the Hot tub! My favorite, was the vows that Mr. Don had us say they where like he knew us, just perfect for me and my best-friend. I have told all my friends and family how great The star of Texas is and hope that they too can go and relax at this wonderful retreat in the woods.

Just amazing...

5 on July 29, 2016

Words can't even begin to describe what this B&B did for my marriage. We needed it so bad. Between the comfy, soft sheets, the gorgeous huge bathroom where we were both able to relax in a hot bath, the delicious homemade alcoholic fruit punch left in the fridge and fresh cream for coffee, the AMAZINGGGG breakfast that was hand delivered by the owners, sitting under huge bright stars in a perfect temperature hot tub, I thought I died and went to heaven. My husband and I enjoyed our trip so so much. I can't even describe what this place is like. It's literally heaven on earth. I wish we could of stayed a week at this place. It was truly amazing. The owners are SO friendly and kind. And I can't even say enough about the property. It's so rustic and Texas. It's naturally beautiful and you can tell that they spend SO much time on every detail. It's amazing, beautifully perfect bed and breakfast. We can not wait to go back. Best getaway we've ever had!!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much, we are so grateful for all your kind words about out place and us. We truly love what we do and hope that it will also show to our guest. Look forward to having you all back again. deb
