My sister and I loved Katy house as soon as we drove up to it. It is a beautiful bed and breakfast with charming hosts. They asked if we needed dinner or an evening drink and told us Honey's ( from the movie Hope Floats) was within walking distance. We took our bags to our beautiful room with a lovely...

The bed and breakfast was delightful. The highlight of the stay was the host, Linda. She is the best B&B host I've had the chance to meet. I went with my mom for a girls weekend during the Round Top Spring shows. Linda was like an old friend - she had advice about the shows and other shops in the...

Beautiful, historic home tucked just off Main Street! Relaxing stay, great service, and friendly owners/staff. I'll be back the next time I'm in the area, and may go back just to visit with Linda again!

The B&B itself is beautiful with many historic and...

Great place to stop on our way to Austin. Innkeepers are wonderful, rooms were lovely, and food was delicious both at the B&B and in town for dinner. Everything a small town should be with surprisingly hip restaurants. Give Back Door Cafe and Front Room Wine Bar a try.

Such a charming trip back in time. The rooms are all decorated in period pieces & soooo very comfortable. Bath had a claw-foot tub/shower & was just delightful. The Texas Special room, which I occupied, had a lovely veranda perfect for enjoying a glass of wine & great conversation. Hosts Linda & Stu were the best. Our breakfast each morning...

Linda and Stu gave us a warm family-like welcome for our stay in Smithville. If you are ever in the Smithville/Bastrop/Austin area you MUST stay at Katy House. Excellent service in a nice family setting.

Staying at Katy House was fabulous! I highly recommend to all! My room was lovely, Linda was wonderful, the B & B is beautiful and it was so convenient to be able to walk to downtown. I was here on business and addition to being such a lovely atmosphere, I appreciated that the internet was excellent.
