Repulsively smelly

1.4 on April 12, 2016

This place was so awful, we ended up leaving early in the morning after our first night. The musty urine smell in the cabin was atrocious and quite frankly unbearable and unacceptable. During our first stay with them, the cabin we stayed in had a mildew odor in the bathroom, but we decided to give them a second chance and this time, the smell was much, much worse and was permeating throughout the entire cabin and not confined to just one room. Then there were the bugs that were inside. I realize being out in the middle of nowhere entails the possibility of a few insects getting in, but this was just too much on top of the smell. I am appalled they think it is acceptable to have someone in that space, much less charge someone to stay there, especially at their rates. This was supposed to be a trip to celebrate our anniversary and it was ruined. We requested a refund of at least one night, but preferably our whole stay. The request was made via email 3 days ago. To date, we have not heard back from them, not even so much as an apology. Even if their policy is a firm no refunds, the fact that they haven't even apologized is appalling.

Anniversary and Getaway Rolled Up In One

We opted to do a romantic getaway with our stay to celebrate our anniversary. Barbara exceeded all expectations. We will go back. Farm is close enough to spend time in Brenham and Chapel Hill. Thank you Barbara!

Magical Aniversary Stay

We decided to stay overnight while celebrating our anniversary. The ride to the victorian mansion was breathtaking. There were horses grazing and deer taking a drink from the pond. Barbara's work shows a great love for her property and she shares it with each guest. Thank you Barbara.

From the check it to check out, Tyler made us feel very welcome, as if we were at home. Had a Awesome getaway to Lillian Farms. We wanted to just relax and get away from the city, and thats what we did. Tyler is an awesome person to talk with, we got the whole story of how Lillian Farms came to be. I could just keep going on how great LF is, but I would be here all day. So we thank you for the much needed rest. Bless you Tyler, and all your future endeavors.

For a true get-away, Lillian Farms provides solitude and space. In the beautiful Texas countryside, it is a welcoming site and a wonderful stay. We will be at Lillian Farms again.

Lillian Farms - The Perfect Getaway!

5 on June 08, 2009

We went with the intention of relaxing & couldn’t have picked a better location. Set on 230 acres in the TX Hill Country with a beautiful lake & breathtaking views everywhere you look-words can't express how truly blown away we were! The home & the grounds are very well maintained & no detail is overlooked. With a beautiful Victorian/country inspired look, it is furnished exquisitely, but comfortably. The porches filled with rockers were the perfect place to read or just relax in the breeze. We also took advantage of the hot tub, which was very nice. It is set far enough away from the road that you don't even hear traffic-you truly feel tucked away on a patch of Heaven on earth. We ordered a massage during our stay & the massage therapist was top-rate. The breakfasts were not only delicious, but the presentation was also a feast to the eyes served on beautiful silver & fine China with fresh flowers. The entire property was very clean-a very big deal to us! Barbara, the innkeeper, is very knowledgeable of the area & made great recommendations on everything we were looking for. She also made us feel right at home-one of the signs in her home reads, "Enter as strangers, leave as friends," & we can't give a better description than that. We stayed in the Angel's Nest-it was a nice size & the bed was very comfortable, which surprised us since it was an antique, but come to find out, she had the mattress custom made for comfort & comfortable it was! The bathroom & closet were very roomy as well & as with everywhere else in the home, it was beautifully furnished. This was our first time to LF, but it will not be our last! We visited in June’09, but hope to return in the spring when the bluebonnets are in season. There is also a carriage house suite that is perfect for a family & we hope to bring the kids next time & enjoy LF as a family. We left feeling relaxed, refreshed & renewed, which is exactly what we were looking for. We highly recommend Lillian Farms!

A very lovely bed and breakfast view. The hostess was most congenial and so very outgoing to assure us a wonderful time. We felt most welcome. Scenery and home just lovely.

Setting is a rench; winding drive to hilltop manor. Warm gracious welcome by Barbara Segal. Beautiful spacious rooms, tasteful "old world" furnishings, and interesting decor. Atmosphere exudes warmth and friendship.

The Best There Is!

5 on May 13, 2008

If you're a love of the movie settings shown in "Gone with the Wind," "Giant," or "The Best Little ... in Texas" (okay, think only sets!) then you'll love time spent at Lillian Farms. This magical B&B is located on Hwy 1105 in Brenham, TX. Set on some 200 acres in the very picturesque rural area within Washington County, this is the place to visit ro ignite or rekindle romance, enjoy solitude and tranquility, and drink in sumptuous views from every window, porch, or path taken. You will enjoy a very special experience of bygone Texan Americana. The lady of the land has addressed minute details everywhere. From sculpting the hills, lake, trees, and shrubs, to creating the elegant Victorian Age manor, the Carriage House, the Stables/Ballroom - everywhere the decor (inside and out) gives you pleasant pause. Couples can walk amongst elegance, enjoy conversations alone together or with new friends, meld with the countryside and watch the world go by. You will leave with your spirits soaring, eager to return. We went during Bluebonnet Season. From late Mark through early April Brenham is the Bluebonnet Capitol of the World! You will see more colorful vistas right on these grounds than anywhere else in the entire county- worthy of hundreds of photos/paintings/sketches here alone! No matter when you can make this a place in your heart – GO!
