“Raising the bar for B&B travel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2009

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!

I just came back from The Parish House in Calvert, Texas on May 14, 2005. It's only been open since September of 2004. It was my first time to stay at a Bed & Breakfast and I was blown away by the experience! The Lady of the house, our hostess and her dog, "Slinger" were there for even the smallest request. She went out of her way to provide us with everything we needed. Even if it was something you wanted picked up at the store. The house and grounds are just gorgeous. There is a Cottage in the back, with a queen sized bed, and a giant bathtub, with a small porch, in the front of the cottage if you want to catch up on some reading, or just to sit and look at the gardens. When you walk into the Parish House it's like walking back in time. The house is decorated in it's 1800's period style. Their are no T.V.'s or telephones in the rooms. Don't worry about it, you won't even notice it. There's too much exploring to do. All bedrooms have their own private bathroom. It's about 20-30 minutes from A&M. That was the reason we were down there, to see someone graduate. The location was perfect for us. The breakfast we had the next morning was awesome. No continental here. Gourmet, gourmet, gourmet. The cost is around $100 per night, but well worth it. We're going back to do some antique shopping, and we'll be staying at The Parish House. I highly recommend!
