Did you receive a new digital SLR camera for Christmas and need to learn how to adjust all the settings? Do you have a “point-and-shoot” camera that you’re comfortable with, but need some help with photo composition to get that truly professional look? We have just the thing to help you start the New Year with confidence behind the lens!

Reviews from our guests remind us of how much we enjoy them!
Being an innkeeper in Brenham is very rewarding. We meet so many great people from all over the world and make lasting friendships with guests who return time and again. One of the best parts is when we find personal notes or reviews left by guests, telling us about their stay. Now, with the help of the Internet, guests can leave reviews all over the place on sites like TripAdvisor, Bedandbreakfast.com, Yelp and even Google.
We recently received a review from a guest that we just had to share with you. This review was left on TripAdvisor:
My wife and I stayed here for one evening and were very satisfied. This B&B is large and has several rooms so you don’t feel cramped. The breakfast is provided by the adjoining public restaurant and we both thought that it was great. Our room was the St Louis at a quiet corner of the building. The upstairs porch is a nice spot to enjoy a glass of wine.
Reading a review like the one above truly makes us feel like we’re in the right profession. We are looking forward to welcoming you to our bed and breakfast here in Brenham. Check out our specials and online availability. Hope to see you soon!
See one of Brenham’s historic cisterns and learn about the Texas archeological landmarks under downtown streets. Tuesday, November 8 at 5:30 pm, the opening celebration will take place for Brenham’s newest park. Located near the corner of Park Street and Commerce, the park will be the site for a troupe of entertainers to portray the events that led to the popularity of cisterns in downtown Brenham for fire prevention. The party will continue with music and refreshments across the street at the Ant Street Inn. All are invited.
Thanks to Mr. and Mrs. Leon Toubin and others for their generous donations to the city of Brenham.
Be sure to visit Toubin Park to read the markers which explain the use of cisterns in Brenham.
