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.

Another great stay at Brazos B&B. Diane was once again such a wonderful host. We love the location and the accommodations.

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!

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.

Amazing stay... Amazing B&B...

5 on March 31, 2015

We absolutely enjoyed our stay at the Brazos B&B. Diane went above and beyond to put our every need at the forefront of her accommodating nature. She taylored each gourmet breakfast to our liking. Day #1: Sugar free oatmeal cinnamon pancakes, warm sugar free syrup, fresh fruit, farm fresh scrambled eggs, yogurt with fresh strawberries and blueberries topped with honey granola, gourmet coffee with creamand stevia! Day #2: Crustless Sausage, green chile, onion and cheese frittata with fresh fruit, banana nut squares and gourmet coffee with cream and stevia... Mmm-mmm good! We had a stocked fridge of bottled water and juices and were welcomed to the B&B with a chilled bottle of Chardonnay, cheese, crackers and grapes! Attention to detail is impeccable at this B&B... My only wish was that we would've been able to stay longer... We'll be back!!! :) (I forgot to mention the beautiful view from our tree-top balcony... Breath-taking, it was!)

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.
