A lovely way to spend the weekend and celebrate a 50th Anniversary with family and friends nearby.

  • 5 of 5

Gresham House is a beautifully restored (great modern kitchen) older home in the heart of Smithville, TX. The charm of Smithville is that it has retained that small town atmosphere with many beautiful old homes but with a active community. We were there to celebrate our golden anniversary at the nearby Red Ridge Reception venue that was a real find! Gresham house is a perfect location it was so convenient. The house is very roomy and extremely comfortable. You can enjoy the peace and quiet of the 'front room', if you want to read, or enjoy the large screen television off of the kitchen in the sun room. I love lots of light and this house really has that. They have worked hard to create a lovely home and yard to enjoy. The kitchen and breakfast area are so open you can enjoy all the nature around you. We watched squirrels running back and forth between yards and trees, as well as mockingbirds working hard to build their nest. It was a great choice for us.

Love the Gresham House.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Wonderful Home!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great place, don't forget to flip the switch

  • 5 of 5

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.
