Whether interested in a Texas weekend getaway, corporate retreat, family reunion, or more, our guests have found just what they’re looking for. The Inn on Lake Granbury offers a beautiful vacation spot with the feel of a luxury hotel. Don’t just take our word for it, though, read what our guests had to say about their time with us.
Guest from Allen, Texas
It was a last minute New Year's getaway and we couldn't imagine a better experience. The Inn on Lake Granbury was fantastic in every imaginable way. The Inn itself was a beautiful, stately house with an "old" character (built in the late 1800s) but all of the conveniences and appointments one could imagine in a modern B&B (major renovation earlier in 2005). Every detail of the experience was a pleasure. The rooms themselves were extremely comfortable and impressive in appearance. While one might expect only a breakfast from a B&B, Jim and Cathy were quite generous with snacks, soft drinks, wine and cheese, and so forth. The grounds of Inn on Lake Granbury back up to beautiful Lake Granbury and we watched the sun glisten off of the lake during the early morning hours. At the same time, we were only a couple of blocks from Granbury Square with all of its shops, eateries, and entertainment. Jim and Cathy attended to what seemed like every detail in their efforts to make the traveler feel comfortable and content. We've stayed at approximately 10 B&Bs around the country, and Inn on Lake Granbury is at the top of our list. We look forward to a quick return!
Guest from Wills Point, Texas
My husband and I spent two nights in Granbury and had an opportunity to see several B&B's as we drove around. This has absolutely the most beautiful grounds in town. Jim and Cathy, the innkeepers, were most attentive - early coffee and warm banana nut bread with a full-blown breakfast at 9:00. Wine and excellent cheeses and dips at 5:00. They were happy to recommend eating establishments and even make reservations for us. The grounds are large and overlook the lake. Huge oaks with an old fashion swing invite you to linger at the water's edge for a fantastic view. The bedrooms with private baths are beautifully appointed with wooden floors, some with limestone fireplaces, private entrances and balconies. It was all that I expected and "kudos" go to this hard working couple.
Guest from Dallas, Texas
If you live in North Texas, you know the challenge of finding a weekend spot to getaway. This is it. It's an easy drive from Dallas and perfect for 2 or 3 nights. When I travel, I am picky and always find a few things that could be improved upon. I couldn't find one thing here. Truly! Every detail was perfect: the beds were heaven, luxury robes, marble baths, beautiful landscaping and great service. I am not typically a fan of B&Bs as I don't like the feeling of being in someone's home. This was more of a small, upscale inn than a B&B - or at least that is how it felt. The House has 8 rooms, all with private baths. We checked most out and they are all beautiful. The owners actually live in a separate building, the kitchen and dining room are in a separate building and there is a small conference area. Having all this away from the rooms makes it seem more private and definitely quieter than a lot of B&Bs. The Inn has a nice view and is very well landscaped with a nice pool, porch-swing and lots and lots of flowers. The owners are wonderful and have put a lot of love into this place. It shows in all they do. I understand they will get a Conde Nast rating soon. They deserve it. We will definitely be back. P.S. Dinner at Stringfellows was nice with a pretty back patio and live music. We would highly recommend this place for those looking to get out of town, honeymooners or even businesses looking to have a small conference.
Guest from Midlothian, Texas
As I was looking to find the perfect place for a break from the stresses and busyness of life, I came across Inn on Lake Granbury’s website. I was so impressed by the pictures that I called and made a reservation for the Belle Star Suite, as my parents also needed to get away. A short drive from the Dallas area and we arrived early for our check-in time, but they were graciously ready for our arrival. The quiet, peaceful setting of this inn, with its huge old live oak trees and beautiful landscaping, immediately caused our pace to slow down as Jim, the innkeeper, showed us to our rooms, sharing a little history of the house along the way. Even though this house was built in the 1800’s, and the exterior still looks the part, inside everything is new. My husband, a custom home builder, was impressed with the craftsmanship. Every detail was exceptionally well done, from the woodwork, the stonework, to the tile and the granite in all the bathrooms. The interior decoration was uncluttered, elegant, and very comfortable. We walked around the grounds, sat by the lagoon- style pool and waterfall, helped ourselves to complimentary sodas, and sat on the porch by the conference room; talking, looking at the lake, and watching it rain. At 5:30 p.m. they set out appetizers of shrimp cocktail and bacon wraps, both were delicious and homemade by Cathy. Beverages of soda and wine were served. After dinner in town, we were eager to return to our king-size bed which was outstanding in comfort because of the great mattress and featherbed that was layered beneath us. The next morning we enjoyed a delicious breakfast of crispy bacon, fluffy scrambled eggs, banana French toast casserole, fruit, and an interesting side dish of cheesy hominy. By now we knew it would be delicious and it was. The coffee is the best coffee we have ever had - very smooth. We found the innkeepers, Jim and Cathy, to be very friendly, accommodating, and unobtrusive. This is not an ordinary bed and breakfast; the atmosphere is more of a small, comfortable inn. I would like to keep this wonderful place a secret all to myself, but it is too good not to share with others.
