Loved the setting of this historic bed & breakfast. The hostess was very friendly and helpful. She knew the history so it was a bonus to get to find out the history behind this historical place. Even though these buildings were from the 1800's all...More
Kay, the longtime manager for the B&B, is absolutely fabulous. The breakfasts that she made were simply wonderful and her hospitality and courtesy is top-notch. I stayed in Beatrice's Room and it was a charming and comfortable room. There were a number of fabulous options...More
We went overnight for a shopping getaway and stayed in one of the cabins. It was perfectly adequate with period furnishings and a comfortable bed. The grounds are quiet and peaceful and the owner was very gracious. The breakfast was substantial and very tasty. All...More
We stayed at the Rose Mansion from Friday, Sept 12 - Sept 14, 2014. At this time the Manger, Kay, had just recently come back after a few years away to once again manage the B&B. She told us all us not as it should be because the previous manager just let it run down. We were with our Brother - and Sister-in - law for a very private and quiet time. My BIL, found out he had melanoma on his Birthday Aug.7, 2014. and had only 6 months to live. He specifically asked if we could spend time in Salado. I made the arrangements, informed Kay that Time was very ill and she saw too it that we had everything we needed. Even at breakfast when I asked her for oatmeal for Tim, never once did she hesitate to make it for him even though it was not on the menu. She didn't blink an eye when Tim , after eating a bite or 2 of the oatmeal, vomited all over the table. She took it all in stride and never once made any of us, especially Tim, feel that he was being too much trouble. We stayed in the Houston and Alamo rooms. They were great, clean, well supplied and cleaned every morning and supplies were restocked. We lacked nothing. Sadly, my brother in law didn't make 6 months. The cancer was very aggressive and he passed away October 8, 2014. Thank you Kay and the rest of the staff for making this weekend a memory not only for Tim to take with him, but for us as well. We loved every minute of the visit.
Thank you so much, Scott & Cindi Berry, Tim & Belinda Berry.
