Description

Circa 1909. Shaded by tall trees, the Katy House's Italianate exterior is graced by an arched portico over the bay-windowed living room. Long leaf pine floors, pocket doors and a graceful stairway accent the completely refurbished interior. The inn is decorated almost exclusively in American antique oak and railroad memorabilia. A 1909 caboose is being restored to be used as a guest room. Historic Main Street is one block away with a fine collection of antique shops. Guests usually come back from walking tours with pockets full of pecans found around town. Smithville was the hometown location for the movie "Hope Floats."

Treated like family

What a great experience! When we needed accommodations for our daughter's wedding, Linda not only had three rooms available for us, but she went above and beyond our ejxpectations for an innkeeper. She hosted two pre- and post-wedding meals for our entire wedding party. And the food was delicious too! She treated us like family the entire weekend. Highly recommended and we can't wait to stay there again. -Dan & Debbie Bridge

Katy House B & B, Texas

My sister and I stayed here in April 2010. Buddy was the resident dog and he welcomed us with open paws. Bruce and Sally were equally as happy to see us and were gracious hosts. We enjoyed great food at breakfast along with a wonderful selection of teas. Would certainly like to stay there again.

Friendly visit

William and Buddy, the resident dogs, were so much fun for my children. The hosts went out of their way to make our family feel at home in their beautiful bed and breakfast. We loved the homemade toast, jalepeno cheese grits and baked eggs for breakfast.
