The house alone was beautiful. Located in a small, cozy town, the trip was very rewarding. The hot breakfasts were delightfully delious. Our hosts had everything prepared for our visit and treated us like family. I never had such a marvelous time.

Historic building is beautiful, warm and comfortable. The hosts are the most gracious people......possibly the most gracious I've ever met. Bruce and Sallie truly make you feel welcome. I spent an unusual amount of time just hanging out in the dining and living rooms because of it. My room was terrific, I slept well and my every need was anticipated....

Sallie, Bruce (and Buddy) are the kind of hosts who were meant to own and run a bed and breakfast establishment. They do everything they can to make sure their guests are comfortable, well fed and relaxed. The breakfast was, hands down, the best we've ever had in a B & B. Smithville, TX. is not a major city, but...

The Katy House was wonderful. The innkeepers, Sallie and Bruce, were delightful. They made my wife and I feel welcomed and part of the family. The Blue Bonnet Room was beautifully decorated with blue bonnets, especially, the old claw tub. Moreover, the decorum of the bed and breakfast and the guest room was cozy and inviting. The food also was...

I have to admit, the only reason I chose The Katy House is because of the pics of the corgis Buddy and William on the website. I thought any place that featured such handsome chaps had to be wonderful, and I was right. Buddy, William and their people, Sallie and Bruce made us feel like family. The Katy House was...
