“Lovely Cottage Retreat”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

We absolutely loved staying in the green cottage. It was elegantly decorated and had all the comforts of home. Cathy and Brian were friendly and organized. We needed to make reservations on short notice & they were very accommodating to have the cottage ready for us. The king bed was very comfy. Water soda & snacks were provided. Loved the zucchini bread snack and the fabulous breakfast with French Toast that was brought to our cottage. We enjoyed watching birds from the porch rocking chairs. Will stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a hair dryer if you need one. We didn't spot one. Dispenser in shower provided quality s...

Four of us stayed two nights in the Pink House. We each had our own queen bed in a clean and tastefully decorated environment. Cathy and Brian, owners of Yellow House B&B, are the perfect hosts, and they treated us royally. Warm brownies one afternoon, and warm fresh baked cookies the second day were just one evidence of their gracious hospitality. Hot, delicious breakfasts were delivered to our doorstep each morning...baked by Cathy and served with a smile and good conversation by Brian. Can't wait to go again and tell others about this wonderful place to stay in Salado.

I took a group of 24 ladies to Salado, Texas and we stayed at the Yellow House Bed & Breakfast. The accommodations were perfect! Very comfortable beds, great Décor, and absolutely fantastic food! The owners were extremely nice and helpful! I would go again and stay there!

Room Tip: for a couple - the cottages would be Perfect. For a group of friends the Blue House is wonderful!

Birthday get-together with friends. We stayed in one room in the house but got to tour all of them before other guests arrived - helped to plan for our next trip! Afternoon snacks, beautiful and delicious breakfast.

We booked all 5 Houses that make up the Yellow House for our family and wedding party for my daughter's wedding weekend. Each of the homes were spacious and had the perfect amenities. The food was amazing and the special care by the owners was above and beyond. It was perfect for our large group. We were able to enjoy rocking on the porches while taking in the beautiful surroundings. My husband and I look forward to staying again in the future.

Room Tip: The Farmhouse rooms are HUGE and the house is so cute! Love the privacy of the Hat Room in the Yell...

We stayed in the gold room in the main house and it was very nice, super clean and had a king size memory foam mattress with nice linens. The breakfast very good. It was a very large serving of sausage quiche, with fruit and biscuits one morning, and delicious French toast, bacon and fruit the next morning. The berries in the fruit were coated with large crystal sugar, a very nice touch, and there were pieces of Apple cut into heart shapes. So nice! Coffee and tea are always available in their dedicated keurig coffee and tea machines and they have a wide variety of coffees, even several choices of decaf! I didn't check out the tea selection but I think there were several kinds. Packages of snacks, like gardettos, and cold sodas and water are also available any time, and Cathy puts out a sweet snack in the afternoons. One day it was cupcakes, the next day was a sweet bread. Breakfast is served at 9am, which was perfect for us. The dining room is lovely and comfortable. Everything was very nice and enjoyable. Thank you, Brian for the tour of the new blue cottage during its last stage of construction/remodeling. As others have said, very convenient to shopping in Salado.

Room Tip: If you want to sleep late, choose a cabin, as the rooms in the main house are in one hallway with wo...

We were in the area for some R & R during bluebonnet season and I found the Yellow House on Trip Advisor.com. The reviews are stellar so I gave them a call. We were fortunate to be able to get one of their cottages for a weekend of fairly short notice due to a cancellation. We took the Green Cottage and it was so lovely, cozy and very private. Perfect for some relaxation!

The property is about 5 scenic minutes from Main Street Salado and an easy drive. You enter a gated 'compound' of sorts with the owners home, a 5 suite area on the back of their home, and then 2 cottages and 2 homes, each of which were vintage homes that were disassembled and moved on to their property and lovingly restored to high standards. Each cottage or house is beautifully decorated, ours in black and white Waverly toile fabrics. Each unit is furnished with quality furniture and very high end linens, etc.

The property is very well manicured and well cared for by the owners, Cathy and Brian. We drove in to the property on a Friday afternoon and Cathy came out to greet us. She showed us to the cottage and gave us an orientation inclusive of WiFi instructions and how to use the Sat TV. She said she would be back in a few minutes, and sure enough, she had hot from the oven zucchini bread. That was perfect with my afternoon tea from their heavily stocked tray of coffees/teas for the in room Kuerig system. The fridge was stocked with soft drinks and waters as well (and not just one bottle, it was packed full!)

Later we met Brian and he, too, was as cordial and hospitable as you can be! We got a full history on the property and how they have grown it with the cottages and houses. The newest house will be ready in a week and it was an old farmhouse, now restored to the very highest of standards, inclusive of a full gourmet kitchen. (our next stay!!)

We arrived early enough that we were able to inspect all but the pink house as it was occupied and were both totally impressed again by the quality of furnishings, comfort level and care and attention to detail. We left after two days and our next hotel (a major mid to high end hotel chain) was such a let down after this visit. The first thing my husband said, you aren't going to like the bath towels (after the thick bleached white towels we had in our cottage - we were totally spoiled!)

Cathy and Brian really have the hospitality thing down to a science. They are attentive but not intrusive. There is a note upon arrival saying we do not want to bother you nor enter your room/cottage but here is our number for anything you may need during your stay.

I don't want to forget a real highlight for me in particular. At 9am each morning, we got a soft knock at the door and a lovely heart shaped wicker basket was placed outside our door. It contained the breakfast of the day, first day, AMAZING amaretto baked French toast with a fresh blackberry warm topping, fresh fruit bowl, hot syrup and super crispy thick bacon. Second day a baked breakfast pie, homemade biscuits, fruit and honey from their own on property happy Yellow House bees!!!

If you want a quiet, lovely, peaceful non-intrusive but attentive B & B experience, this is for you! Cathy and Brian, thank you again for allowing us time to melt down! Hope to see you again soon!
