Brazos Bed and Breakfast

20251 Pickens Road , Washington, TX 77880 USA (Show map)


Two miles from the Birth Place of Texas, you will discover the Brazos Bed and Breakfast at the end of a winding country road. The secluded setting is nestled among large live oaks. Grounds include many native flowers, and an organic herb and vegetable garden that draws many birds and butterflies plus a walking trail where you may see deer. We offer complete privacy with our two luxurious yet comfortable suites. Both suites include a butler's pantry, private bath, private entrance, WIFI, Dish TV, Apple TV, pillow top King bed and sitting and dining area. There are some great views through french doors. The larger Texan suite, has a gas fire place and large bath with walk in shower and whirlpool bath tub. The enchanting upstairs Tree Top suite has full bath with tub/shower combination. The balcony has a umbrella table and gas grill. Each suite includes complimentary wine & cheese and an in-suite breakfast. Enjoy the peace and quiet and perhaps even the hot tub under the stars.

I will never forget this GEM!

This will tell you volumes about the quality of the Brazos Bed and Breakfast...our last stay there was in the Summer of 2015 and I keep Diane's email in my inbox :) I can't wait to stay there again and too bad for us my husband and I are workaholics, otherwise we'd probably be there often. I have never felt so welcomed into someone's home with such warmth and friendliness as I felt here. My husband surprised me with this little get away and it was awesome! So clean and Diane thinks of everything to make your stay comfortable. We stayed in the TreeTop Suite and it was very romantic and charming. Breakfast was delicious and filling each morning and when we arrived wine was already chilling along with fresh fruit and cheese/chocolates. The butler's pantry is a nice touch and well stocked. Diane had the best suggestions about things to do and see in the area and her suggestions were spot on. We enjoyed spending quiet evenings on the balcony listening to the sounds of the Texas Hill Country. I really liked the little drive to get to the bed and breakfast, one day we had to stop the vehicle to wait for cows to pass in the road! It was exactly what I wanted...time to stop and smell the roses. So to Diane and Villard I say many thanks for memories that always make me smile. Sincerely, Louis and Jessica C.

Truly a wonderful place to stay. Out of the way and very peaceful. Diane and Villard are outstanding hosts. The room was cozy and comfortable. The meals were excellent. Every little detail was thought of. I cannot think of one single negative thing to say about our stay. We will definitely be back!

Wonderful country getaway

Brazos B&B is a peaceful country getaway located conveniently to Houston and other nearby cities. The proprietors are very friendly and helpful, the breakfast is outstanding, and the room is comfortable and private. The grounds are so beautiful and there are many walks and seating areas scattered around. We always enjoy the hot tub in the evenings. Highly recommended!

Little piece of Heaven

We had a wonderful time at Brazos B&B. It is difficult to decide what made it so good as the whole package was delightful. Of course Diane's personal touch and attention to detail played a major part. If we ever get to Texas again we we will definitely go back. Meantime we have told all our Texan friends about it and advised them that to re-charge batteries and relax it is THE place to go.

About the innkeepers

I absolutely love gardening! We have two organic vegetable and herb gardens and a small orchard. Summers include canning all the produce. Another pleasure is cooking and baking. I really enjoy making everything special for others.
