Things To Do
On the property…
There is an Infinity pool overlooking the countryside, horseback riding ($100) on 10 miles of groomed trails, fly fishing in stocked ponds ($100), walking/running/biking on roads throughout the 300 acre property, skeet shooting ($100) with all equipment provided (this was fun and even though we had never shot before managed to hit five!), massage and spa services ($125) in the privacy of your casita and a remarkable personal tour of the property’s gardens where you will learn about organic gardening and the Inn’s culinary philosophy. This is not to be missed, it is fascinating. You can arrange a private tasting ($100) in the 8,000 bottle wine cellar and for the more sedentary guest there is a collection of DVD’s, board games and books.
the charming little town of Brenham is about 11 miles away and features interesting historical and cultural attractions as well as antique stores and boutiques. You’ll find the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum, an antique carousel, the renowned Antique Rose Emporium and the Bluebell Creamery among other attractions.
