The Red Velvet Inn is a unique, pet-friendly bed & breakfast located near the heart of downtown Navasota, TX, which is 20 minutes south of College Station and a hour north of Houston. It is located in a 120-year-old Victorian style house that was built by Charles W. Stewart, two-time mayor of Navasota, and son of Charles B. Stewart, signer of the Texas Declaration of Independence and designer of the Texas flag. Pets are welcome at the Red Velvet Inn and a percentage of the room rates will be donated to Texas Husky Rescue, Long Way Home Pit Bull Rescue, and Texas Sled Dog Rescue.

I thought the inn was beautiful & well kept. It was very clean. Unfortunately, I wasnt able to stay the night by myself in the inn, but I recommend the inn for couples or families. I would like to see the inn do more for breakfast. I have been to bed and bteakfast that serve a more hearty & hot breakfast. There was just yogurt in the fridge & an assortment of bagels.
Thank you for your kind words about the Inn itself. My assistant and I take great pride in meticulously maintaining this 130-year-old historic Victorian property for the comfort and enjoyment of our guests. It is unfortunate that you didn’t feel comfortable staying by yourself for a few hours until the other guests returned from dancing at a local venue. Had you stayed, I'm sure you would have enjoyed the complimentary upgrade you received to an ensuite room that you received prior to your arrival. I must clear up some confusion regarding the breakfast. As stated on my website and the confirmation email I send to every guest, breakfast is a self-serve Continental. That day, the breakfast not only included yogurt and bagels as you mentioned, but also fruit, raspberry & white chocolate scones, oatmeal and two kinds of cereal. Additionally there is a wide beverage selection including coffee, tea, milk, orange juice, cranberry juice, bottled water and a variety of sodas. Perhaps you weren't aware of the other options available since you did not stay for breakfast. Best wishes on your future travels.

The place was perfect for what we needed. Not having stayed there before, we were pleasantly surprised at how clean and well decorated it was. The room we stayed in was perfect for what we needed. I would definitely stay there again.

We came for Parent's Weekend at TAMU, and as that is a very busy weekend, ended up booking this gem of a B&B. The house is lovely, our room was fantastic. Such a lovely departure from staying in hotels. The distance is not far at all from College Station, and it was great to see more of the area than just the university area. We will definitely consider staying there again on a future visit to TAMU.

Beautiful remodeled home that made for a pleasant surprise and stay. The only suggestion is since the sign outside has a red velvet cupcake that should be placed in each room.

I love the Red Velvet Inn. This was my second stay and it again it did not disappoint. The rooms are perfectly designed and very cozy and welcoming. The place is just gorgeous! Denise, is the best inn keeper and she has an amazing heart! She donates part of your stay to local rescues. She is just amazing and the love she put into this place shines through in every aspect. It is very welcoming, very easy to get to and very highway accessible. I recommend this place to everyone!

My husband and I stayed at the Red Velvet Inn on the weekend of November 4th and we really were pleasantly surprised with the accommodations. The room was beautiful. Exactly as the web site said. The breakfast left a little to be desired. For the amount we paid for the room, one would think the food would be more in sink with the price. It did not appear to be replenished the next day either. However our stay was not diminished by the food. The room was well worth it! Even though we did not bring our pets this time, we were pleasantly surprised by the lovely back yard and patio to sit and enjoy the outdoors. Would definitely bring our pets next time.

After 21 years in the stock brokerage business, I decided that I wanted to venture out and do things I was truly passionate about. That lead me to, among other things, rescuing Siberian Huskies and bringing neglected properties back to life, which in turn led to me becoming an innkeeper.
