Girl's Weekend 2017

My best friend and I needed a mutual space to meet after many years - this place felt like home for us. We could not have asked for a better place and we have committed to meeting again next year! I recommend and will recommend the Sycamore Cottage to anyone who is looking for a place of rest, rejuvenation and comfort! Thank you so much!

Stayed here during Roundtop. Found the cottage to be extremely clean, rooms were large and comfy, with plenty of seating, kitchen had everything we needed! Quiet street with easy access to downtown Brenham for great shopping and dining! Easy to get to all the Roundtop locations. Hope to return to Sycamore Cottage!

Heavenly Stay!

We were delighted beyond measure with our stay at the Sycamore Cottage in Brenham! It was full of history yet renovated to perfection! It was spotlessly clean and luxuriously comfortable. I give it my highest recommendation. During our stay in Brenham the cows weren't the only ones who thought they were in heaven!

A Little Piece of Heaven!

What an amazing place to spend our moms getaway Weekend! The moment we walked in, it felt just like home! Rodney went out of his way to make our stay special. He had delicious snacks and drinks waiting for us when we arrived. The homemade quilts and charming decor were incredible. Can't wait to come back and stay again!

An unexpected treat!

We were so fortunate to find this gem in Brenham for a quasi-spontaneous get away weekend! The house is meticulous, furnished with interesting antiques and artwork, and perfectly situated whether you want to walk to the historic downtown area or head out of town to the many interesting sites and events in the area. The owner's hospitality is genuine and generous. We could not have selected a better place for Rest and Relaxation! I recommend Sycamore Cottage Guest House without any reservation (no pun intended).

Sycamore Cottage was perfect for my stay in Brenham. The home is absolutely beautiful, and decorated very tastefully. The history of the home and the photos of the remodeling process add a very interesting and personal touch, and show the incredible amount of love and labor that were put into the remodeling. The home is very conveniently located to restaurants and the downtown area, yet in a very quiet area allowing for relaxing times, especially to enjoy the front porch swing. The accommodations are immaculate, and the owners stayed in touch, making sure that everything was acceptable during my stay there. I definitely recommend staying at Sycamore Cottage.

Great location and peaceful surroundings

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sycamore Cottage. It was very close to the downtown area and yet it was very quiet as we sat on the front porch.....never hearing noise from the neighbors. The home was very charming and comfortable. The owner stayed in touch with us, making sure we had everything we needed, and was very accommodating. We will definitely make plans to return!

3rd Annual Girls' Weekend

This was our 3rd Annual Girls' Weekend -- where 4 friends from college get together without kids, dogs or husbands -- to laugh, play, shop, and relax! The Sycamore Cottage Guest House was the perfect place for that. A quiet, relaxing place close to historic downtown Brenham. The Guest House was clean and comfortable ... met our expectations

Great Time in the Beautiful Syncamore Cottage

just wanted to say there is NO doubt we will return to this great place! Everything in this home was beautiful and SPOTLESS !! We thoroughly enjoyed the stay. Too bad we didn't see all the GREAT DVDs until the morning we were leaving; however, we did stay an extra 1-1/2 hours to watch "HOPE FLOATS" .... thank heavens you had Kleenex there, too! Great weekend in a GREAT cottage !!
