“Houston architect Barry Moore designed the raised cottage-style house. While some rooms feel light and feminine, others match more masculine tastes. No one is a stranger at breakfast. All gather for a meal of fruit and egg dishes, Texas-shaped biscuits, and more.” – Southern Living

“What a special place! Delicious food, wonderful ambiance, such friendly hosts!” – Jeri & Kyle, Bartlesville, OK

“The bedrooms … open into a lobby/living room/library – call it what you will, it’s as comfortable and practical as it is unusual – that extends the length of the house. This is an ideal place to sink into an easy chair in front of a fireplace to read or converse or listen to recorded classical music.

“Mornings begin with coffee in the library. Breakfast is a course-by-course extravaganza served in a formal dining room.” – Houston Chronicle

“More than expected!!! No. 1 bed and breakfast!!!” – Karen, Tom Bean, TX

“Restraint has been shown in the warm decor, which lacks froufrou but nonetheless manages to carry out special themes through the use of carefully chosen fabrics, antiques and appropriate accents. Amenities include cable TV hidden in armoires, nice toiletries, afternoon refreshments, early morning coffee  and breakfast at 9 o’clock.” – Dallas Morning News

“What a great place! Everything is charming and functional!!” – Maxine, Lancaster, TX

I wanted to send a BIG thank you for hosting our family during the wedding weekend.  Everyone has raved about your bed and breakfast and it truly is a wonderful place to stay.  Thank you for putting up with the large volume of people and the change-over of three of the rooms on Saturday night.  I appreciate you accommodating some of our family members who were able to stay and experience the Mulberry for themselves that night.  Just yesterday I received an email from my mother saying she wanted to return!” Angela 10/1/2010
