Reminds me of Grandma's house

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our Smithville weekend. This home is Beautiful! It felt like we stepped back in time. It sits in an old town neighborhood with huge trees and quiet streets. My husband was there for work and I enjoyed feeling like I was in my grandparents house. My daughter came to visit and said it was her favorite vacation rental so far. Pretty impressive as we stayed in NYC in an apartment watching the Empire State Building change colors.

Very comfortable and our host was Great!!!

Beautiful, comfortable property!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Gresham House in Smithville. The house was beautiful and well-maintained with plenty of spaces to visit and relax. Beds were extremely comfortable and bathrooms were very roomy. Perfect for our girls' weekend. Smithville was also a beautiful town with very welcoming shops and restaurants. We shopped antique stores and galleries; ate and drank in wonderful restaurants; and I was able to photograph the inside of a great building that was in the beginning stages of renovation. Would definitely come back to Smithville and stay at Gresham House again.

Beautiful home in friendly Smithville

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Gresham house for 4 nights during the Formula One Grand Prix at Circuit of the Americas. Although the home is a ways from the track (40 minutes), it was well worth the drive. This home is beautifully decorated and very comfortable for two couples. Downtown Smithville is a short walk, and we thoroughly enjoyed the local coffee shop and the beautiful, quiet tree-lined streets. Many trains pass through Smithville at all hours, but we quickly became accustomed to the train horns that are just part of this small Texas town's charm. We've rented many homes, and this was absolutely in the top tier. Loved it!
