Great Texas Hill Country B&B

5 on October 15, 2013

This inn was one of the best we've ever stayed at. The rooms were clean and beautifully decorated. The food served was delicious. The owners, Laurie and Jerry, went out of their way to make us feel very comfortable. We'll go back every year to enjoy this wonderful B&B!

Wonderful Weekend

Birthday Weekend in Austin/Dripping Springs

5 on February 18, 2013

We stayed here for my wife's birthday. Easily accessible to Austin, out experience at the inn was outstanding. The food was spectacular, and the coffee (a very important detail to me) was from Costa Rica and top notch. Being city folks, we enjoyed the serene location and beautiful grounds. A much more memorable and unique experience than staying in a hotel. I'd highly recommend this place to friends, and we already plan to return.

A Little Piece Of Heaven

5 on November 15, 2012

Mt. Gainor Inn was a little piece of Heaven for us. What made our stay so 'special' were Jerry and Laurie. The we're the best host and hostess we have ever had at a B&B. The breakfast was delicious and we loved the apple and blueberry pancakes, along with the sausage and eggs. The coffee was delicious! We are so grateful for a wonderful and relaxing weekend and we cannot wait to return. May God continue to bless the Inn and America. Dave & Connie Lewis

Absolutely Amazing

My husband and I spent the weekend in the Side Oats Cottage and it was great. It was roomy, beautifully decorated and very clean. Jerry and Laurie do an unbelievable job at making sure your stay is perfect. Words can't describe the breakfast. We will definitely be back!!!

Centrally located relaxing atmosphere

We found out about Mt. Gainor Inn from our daughter and Son-in-Law. The inn is in a geographically convenient spot. In less than 30 min. you can be at an Olive Orchard, Wineries, Bar-b-Que and really nice biking. We went there just to unwind and relax. Laurie is a fantastic cook and focuses on healthy cooking. The inn caters to bicycle riders and has maps already perpared for 12, 17 or 41 mile loops. You really can't go wrong with a nice relaxing stay at Mt. Gainor Inn.

Very Relaxing

We had a very relaxing stay. The innkeepers were very nice and helpful. Definitely take time to rest out in the hammocks!

Wonderful Hill Country Getaway

4.4 on May 09, 2012

My husband & I stayed at the Mt. Gainor Inn to get away from city life & enjoy spending time together. This was a wonderful location to do so! It is very peaceful as it is far away from the town. We lounged in the hammocks & viewed the stars from our room's porch. Jerry & Laurie were great hosts, & even mailed me an item that I accidentally left in our room. We will definitely go back one day to try out one of the new rooms they were building while we were there.

Wine Country Weekend

4.0 on January 26, 2011

We stayed at Mt. Gainor Inn for a getaway weekend visiting wineries. Although the cottage we stayed in was separate and private, we would have enjoyed any of the lovely, charming and beautifully appointed rooms. Laurie and Jerry have done an outstanding job of refurbishing the old house and providing authentic appointments. The breakfasts were gourmet quality. The hosts were terrific fun and we have become permanent friends with two of the other guests we met. Mt. Gainor Inn is in the country but only minutes from Wimberly, Fredericksburg, and many wineries. We hope to return this year.

The Perfect Place!

4.8 on November 22, 2010

If you are looking for the perfect B&B get away THIS IS IT! Just far enough out in the country to feel - relaxed, yet close enough to fun things to do and explore. The Innkeepers Laurie and Jerry are just the BEST. They will make sure that you get as much or as little attention as you need. They are very knowledgeable of the surrounding area - where to go and what to do. And breakfast - well it was just amazing...the first morning we ate outside: looking at great hill country scenery, talking with new friends and enjoying great food. I have some special dietary requirements and Laurie met them with ease - -really great food! If you are a coffee drinker - they have a special blend that is just ...darn good! We will be back, the sooner the better!
