We loved our visit to this great home in Granbury. The hosts were very nice and even offered us an upgrade. The home was beautiful, bed very comfortable, games and books to use, and great location. We highly recommend Iron Horse Inn! We will return!

Amazing Experience

Beautiful B & B! If you enjoy traveling into the past (with modern conveniences) this is the place for you. The historic home is loved and immaculately cared for with attention to every detail. Diana & Don are so friendly and true masters of hospitality. After just a few minutes we felt like we had been welcomed into the home of old friends. We will definitely be returning for another stay and highly recommend Iron Horse Inn.

A Wonderful Weekend

5 on February 01, 2018

My wife and I desperately needed a weekend getaway. It had been almost one year since we last “left” parenthood. Let me say as clearly and succinctly as possible, this was THE place to go! From the moment we arrived we were impressed. We were greeted at the door and immediately felt like we were family, not guests. After a brief tour, we were shown our room, which was lovely. We dined all weekend on local cuisine at the town square and were very pleased. Our bed was so comfortable we looked to see who the manufacturer was. Breakfasts are served in dining room fashion where we again felt like family as we socialized with our hosts and other guests. Let me just summarize to say we had a magnificent time and definitely will return.

Iron Horse B&B

A beautiful and beautifully decorated B&B in Grandbury , Texas. 2 night stay. Don and Dianna are wonderful hosts with friendly service and gorgeous rooms in a beautiful home so lovingly restored and maintained. Breakfasts are fabulous! Both Don and Diana are a wealth of information about the home, town, events and local history. This is our second stay and can envision more stays in this beautiful B&B with such delightful hosts.

Weekend at Iron Horse B&B

5 on December 16, 2017

Iron Horse B&B is a wonderful home to spend time while visiting Granbury. The owners, Diana and Don, are real pros. They know exactly how to make a person feel safe, comfortable, and welcomed! They are so friendly & their beautiful home is a site to behold, especially when it is decorated for Christmas! And they serve the best breakfasts! My cousin & I will definitely be back!
