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.

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.

Lovely Place

  • 5 of 5

Staying in this house was a great experience! Making the reservation and accessing the house was no problem at all. This house is beautiful ~ the design and decor are great, and it was very clean. The beds are comfortable, there are plenty of clean towels in the bathrooms, and there is every kitchen utensil you would need, toaster, coffee maker, lots of dishes, and a clean, large refrigerator. The front porch is perfect for hanging out and relaxing. There's a gorgeous tree in the front yard with spotlights. Really loved this house!! Thank you!

Plenty of space and convenient to everything!

  • 4 of 5

The Gresham house was home base during a wedding weekend. We had plenty of room to spread out and entertain. The third half bath came in handy. Julia was available for last minute details. The neighborhood location was perfect and centrally located between the wedding venue, Red Ridge Receptions, and all of the other houses or B&B's we rented.

Beautifully restored and unique home.

Perfect for our small gathering for a wedding in nearby Bastrop. Front porch was ideal for wine and coffee. Felt very safe in the quaint neighborhood. Would highly recommend.
