Escape to a perfect Texas small town retreat in this original 1890 Smithville jewel. Gresham House was artistically restored in 2013 to include modern amenities, great, open spaces with high ceilings, tall windows and plenty of natural light. A cook’s counter top centers the kitchen, overlooking the large bar to the TV room. The joining dining room opens to a cathedral ceiling featuring original stained glass, with views and french doors opening to the magnificent oak tree. Featuring 2 beautiful bedrooms (1 King, 1 Queen) with private baths, plus 2 single sleep sofas with bedding and 1/2 bath off the TV room. Located in the heart of Smithville’s historic neighborhood and just a stroll to Main Street, enjoy antique stores, coffee shops, restaurants and the Railroad Museum while enjoying the town’s relaxed, friendly personality.
This was our second visit to the Gresham House, and again we loved it. The House is small enough for easy accessibility to all the rooms, but big enough to spread out. When you stay here, you feel like you are home. This will be our go to place in Smithville!
Don't forget Honey's Pizza. Delicious Neapolitan pizza, friendly service. The best restaurant in Smithville.
We stayed at this beautiful home to celebrate my Mom's 77th birthday.
It was a convenient location for our tour of the "Painted Churches" based out of Schulenburg, TX (a quick 30-45 min from Smithville). The enormous old oak trees and rolling hills of the surrounding countryside provide for incredible scenery along the way.
The beds at Gresham House were very comfortable, the house is roomy, and the kitchen is well stocked.
Definitely check out the "Front Room" wine bar and "Comfort Cafe" - both in Smithville and within walking distance of the Gresham house.
The surrounding towns of La Grange and Round Top are great stops along the way as well.
Thank you, Julia, for making our stay extra pleasant! Will book again at Gresham House when I bring my husband down with our motorcycles.
6 girlfriends had a wonderful time at the Gresham House...fully stocked and very clean. Close to Round Top antique shopping. Will definitely return!!
The Gresham house is a beautiful, quaint two bedroom house in Smithville, well within walking distance to main street shopping and restaurants. The kitchen was gorgeous, and had everything we needed to prepare some meals, as well as plentiful towels to dry items we used. The bath towels were thick and luxuriant. A funny thing happened while we were there. We arrived on a Friday, and taking second shower on Saturday morning, I thought the cold water just reflected a small water heater. The temperature dropped that day 50 degrees to a low of 29 degrees. The following morning, I suggested we skip showers and drive back to Houston. My girlfriend dared me to shower, and it was the coldest, most miserable shower in my life. Upon loading the car, I saw a lone switch on a wall with a label above it. As I got closer, it read "Hot Water". We laughed about this and it made a great trip, even better. So be sure to flip the switch! While in town, don't miss Honey's pizzeria. Simply great pizza.
Wanted to get out of the city and decided on Smithville just out of the blue. Great town with great people and house added to the charm of it. Everything is close and make sure you go to the comfort café for breakfast and honey's for dinner.
