Another weekend of fabulous guests that I will cherish as new friends!  The husbands or Fiance's surprised their loves and I believe all made memories and amazing points!! Our guests included a 2 time Equestrian World Champion American Pinto Horse Association winner celebrating her engagement Jessica and her fiance Kartik, our dear friends who have now come for the last 3 Valentines weekends; Freddie Elliff of the band Cool Freddie & The Crew who play every year at our Rifle Hall Valentines Dance & Patti & Allen who are looking to retire in our area.  And our new friends Elvis & Sherry & Steve & Judy.  This is why we open our doors and our hearts.  We love sharing our B&B/Home with the amazing people who find us and choose to come to experience Round Top and step back in time to the peaceful country Victorian era life we live here.

There is no greater compliment than to be honored (unsolicited) and mentioned with photos in magazines.  The Belle was most recently featured in Mansfield Magazine with a beautiful photo provided by Cindi Knebel. 

We were also recently awarded a 5-star rating through "CMUS Talk of The Town."

You will also find featured in the Fall 2012 issue of Victorian Homes.

Thanks so much for the recognition!!

"When you open your home, you open your heart"  Oprah's quote on one of her first issues of "O" magazine that I purchased shortly after I bought the Belle and opened the fleur-de-lis etched double doors to the public.  Her words were prophetic.  Now, after nearly 7 years of sharing my home and the history of others who've lived here since 1881, I realized that my 'her-story' is ready to be shared. 
This is the letter that accompanied purchase contract when it was revealed to me that another contract had come in and was going to be presented at the same time as mine.

"I have never believed in the experience of 'Love at First Sight' until I got lost on a country road and the Belle of Round Top captured me, Heart & Soul, the moment she came into view!  As I gazed at her stately beauty through my camera lens and the Texas wildflowers; children laughing; couples strolling; and venerable ladies adorned her porches sipping mint juleps, all came vividly into the frame.
    My history includes many years in historical Roswell, Ga. living on 54 rolling acres.  A choice to move to Texas 7 years ago to retire from many years of a successful small business venture landed me in Montgomery, TX.  The exquisite beauty of the lake and surrounding historical grandeur captivated me and I began a career of photography. My photos highlighted the uniqueness of this small town which is 'The Birthplace of the Lone Star Flag' on the cities website, calendars, restaurant placemats (which are given away free to the visitors) and video postcards that are still being perfected. 
    Please allow me to continue what you have so lovingly begun.  I am a preservationist and naturalist and can envision the joy that will come to all who visit in the long years ahead the Belle!  Each room will reflect the era of her construction.
Humbly and Sincerely,
Deborah Ebert"

The Musical "Heart of the Tin Trunk" was a huge success! The Festival Hill symphony Hall was filled to capacity for 5 of the 6 performances and many of the authors dearest friends stayed here at the Belle with us.  We enjoyed them immensely and hope that this wonderful musical continues to tour this country to remind us all of our immigrant relatives who sacrificed so much so we could lead the lives of opportunity that we enjoy here in the United States.

Don't miss out on a symphony experience that you'll be telling all your friends about in a small Texas town that will capture your heart. 

We had the MOST beautiful spring I've ever experienced here, be sure and look at the photos, however, they don't do it justice.  Think about booking for next springs display for your wedding or retreat!
