WOW! Our family has stayed at B&Bs in the past, but the Parish House has raised our standard for any future bed-and-breakfast travel! The attention to detail (starched sheets), winsome hospitality (warm brownies and tea waiting upon return from a very rainy day excursion) and gourmet breakfasts par excellence made the beautifully appointed historic house HOME for the long weekend. No phones or televisions in the bedrooms or common areas – what a welcome break from the bustling world! (Don’t worry: cell phones still have coverage.) We made some nice memories: engaging in bright conversation while sitting in wicker chairs on the porch as the rain comes down…reading a book in either the ladies’ parlor or the gentlemen’s parlor… savoring the taste of sour cream biscuits with cranberry jelly at breakfast. NICE.
We were wrapping up a car trip tour of Texas colleges and universities with our daughters, and the Parish House was the capstone of a very pleasant trip. There are the usual factors when choosing a school, but proximity to the Parish House is definitely going to receive weighty consideration!
