You Will Love the San Gabriel House Bed and Breakfast in Georgetown Texas!

San Gabriel House, Georgetown texas bnb, bed and breakfastThe end of September found me in Georgetown, Texas enjoying their annual Wine Festival. I had the most wonderful weekend, and part of the reason why is the San Gabriel House Bed and Breakfast at University and Olive, across from Southwestern University.

San Gabriel House has a long history, it was built in 1908. There is a huge main house with a carriage house in back. Walking into the BNB is like going back in time. I almost wondered if my Grandmothers were around somewhere! Feast your eyes on these photos of this exquisite Bed and Breakfast, and click HERE for the history of this beautiful home! Sadly there are no photographs of my two breakfasts, which were incredible, but I ate them before I remembered to get photos! There was a Grilled Grapefruit and French Toast the first morning, with a never ending flow of coffee and juice. The second morning was an egg casserole, biscuits, and a couple from Zimbabwe with whom I spent a lovely hour.

My favorite feature? The huge porches, up and down. Even in the heat of the summer these porches are probably aired and cool.
