"The Belle of Round Top" is an "1880's Antebellum inspired Victorian Mansion" located on 15 acres of Texas countryside. It is surrounded by luscious gardens and is exquisitely furnished with period antiques. The moment you pass through the doors you are transformed back to a time of gracious living and made to feel like a queen.
During our last visit, we welcomed the morning by sitting on the veranda in our pj's while we sipped hot tea or coffee and listened to all the birds sing their morning songs. But I can't fail to mention the sweet potato waffles with maple nut syrup, thick sliced peppered bacon, and fruit compote (after all, this is a B&B!).
During the afternoon, we strolled around the little town of Round Top, and later, visited an antique rose market where we purchased roses to plant on Sunday (Mothers Day) in honor and remembrance of our mothers.
Evenings were spent dining out or enjoying a scrumptious country meal, lovingly prepared by everyone (did I mention that "The Belle" has a BIG kitchen). We laughed and shared memories of our lives while we drank our yummy peach iced tea and wine in the wicker rockers on the veranda.
Each day ended (with a hot cup of tea or a bowl of Blue Bell ice cream) to experience the famous Texas sunsets. We all woke up the next morning rested, refreshed and looking forward to doing it all again.
I fully guarantee that you will arrive with all the stress and burdens of your busy lives but you will leave a different person!!!
If you've been thinking you needed some time with people who really 'get who you are and support you', this is the place! You will not regret it and you deserve it!!!

I stayed here during the Fall Antique Festival and met a new friend. She is the owner of this wonderful, relaxing retreat and was so kind to us that I left there feeling like Deb is a new friend! She is fantastic and so is her adorable husband. If you ever are in Round Top, this is the ONLY place to stay!!!!
