Wonderful Get Away location

5 on November 13, 2017

This was our first stay at a Bed & Breakfast! It won't be our last here. My daughter & I spent the most amazing weekend at Southern Rose Ranch! Donna & Steve were wonderful! The breakfasts that were served were delicious and so out of the ordinary! The ranch itself is a relaxing atmosphere and we were rested & refreshed when we left Sunday. Thanks so much!!!

A Great Place to Get Away

A great place to get away and spend quality time with your love one. Great host and outstanding breakfast. We highly recommend it and will return.

Anniversary gettaway!

Perfect Anniversary getaway! We have stayed at many B&B's but never have we received such hospitality. The massages were amazing and I get them on a regular basis, so I am kind of picky. But these ladies were excellent. The food was very delicious and beautifully prepared and the suite we were in was so homey and comfortable, we didn't want to leave! Donna, you are an amazing hostess.

Girls Roundtop 2014 Trip

5 on April 07, 2014

Our 'girls' group has been coming to Roundtop Spring Antique Show for 8 years when we learned our usual accommodations would no longer an option this year. LUCKY US! We were blessed to find SRR and we will never look back. We found our luxurious 'home away from home' was beyond any expectations. The food was divine. Donna also arranged for 4 massage appointments....a real treat after 4 hard days of shopping. If you are lucky enough to find 'room at the Inn' BOOK IT! We also enjoyed visiting with her husband Steve and puppies too!

Perfect get away

My Husband And I Celebrated Our Three Year Anniversary Here. The Southern Rose Ranch Is Absolutely Beautiful And Peaceful. Mrs. Donna Makes You Feel Right At Home And An Amazing Cook! Please Request The French Toast If You Stay, You Will Not Be Disappointed. We Will Defiantly Be Back!

Most Amazing!

This place was beyond words. Donna went beyond the call of duty to make our stay as perfect as it could be. I wish it was closed to Alabama so my wife and I could visit more frequently. It is really hard to gasp the richness of this place unless you go. And I mean the richness in the simple thing in life where you do not need a beach to appreciate.

Great Weekend

I booked the Southern Rose Ranch Bed and Breakfast after reading so many positive reviews. Even though I was a little nervous since I had not consulted my wife, our stay was fantastic. My wife fell in love with the place and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I did as well. Donna and Steve are great host and Donna is an excellent chef! My wife and I were celebrating our 41st anniversary. I highly recommend Southern Rose Ranch.

Everything we hoped for and more!

Combine a beautiful setting, fabulous food and the best hospitality in all of Texas and you will have Southern Rose Ranch. My husband and I were celebrating our 30th anniversary and just wanted a place to relax and be pampered. We couldn't have chosen a more perfect place. Our hosts, Donna & Steve Cummins make it their mission to ensure that every guest is treated like royalty and they definitely succeed. From the beautifully appointed suite to the amazing meals, everything was even better than we could've hoped for. They are also a wealth of knowledge about the area and can make suggestions for whatever you are interested in exploring. Shopping, history, dining or just a beautiful drive in the country are all within minutes of the ranch. We highly recommend a visit - you will not be disappointed!

Perfect Anniversary getaway

You've found the perfect getaway! You won't find better hosts, surroundings, accommodations, or breakfasts ANYWHERE! This was one anniversary trip we will never forget!

so tranqul and perfect

Reunion of 5 high school friends. We met and spent the weekend at Sorthern Rose Ranch. We shared the Star Suite until earlly morning hours just talking and remembering. Finally splitting up and going to bed ...part of us in The Rose Suite. Both suites were decorated so perfectly and had everything you could possibly need. We all agreed that breakfast at home would never meet the standards of the delicious meal served at the ranch. Donna and Steve Cummins are the perfect host. They know the area and are so helpful with suggestions and directions. We intend to meet again at the Southern Rose Ranch. Nothing like waking up there in the mornings! If you have not had the need to.
