Two bedroom and bath overlooking the Colorado River Valley
About Doug Benson
We are transplanted Houstonians! Doug is originally from the Rio Grande Valley area and an A&I graduate, and Vicki is from Dallas. We owned and operated a small chain of flower shops for 32 years.
Why Doug Benson chose Bastrop
After visiting the area to play golf, we fell in love with the "lost pines" of this cusp of the hill country. We also are history lovers, especially anything Texas, and Bastrop is known for the most historic buildings in Texas history. It's close enough to Austin or San Antonio to take a day trip and then come back to the peacefulness of our porch overlooking the Colorado River. The hills of Tahitian are great for those who enjoy walking, hiking, or biking. We even have a nature walk with river access called the Colorado River Refuge and Lost Pines Nature Trail.
What makes this Bed And Breakfast unique
We designed our home to be similar to the Texas Republic style with a "dog run" feature. The guest rooms are on the opposite side of the house from the master bedroom. The Great Room is an open concept with a large stone fireplace separating the living room from the dining and kitchen areas. We love the feeling of being in a tree house and the awesome view our spacious porch offers. The historical district offers some unique shopping and quaint eateries with live music on weekends.Visit the Colorado Winery in our downtown area or the Lost Pines Art Center on Chestnut. Enjoy a stroll along our river walk, or rent a canoe or kayak and float the Colorado!

Watermelon festival weekend
Doug and Vicki are amazing! The place has wonderful views. We'll be seeing them next the we're down that way!
We are so pleased that you and your group were pleased with your stay with us and hope you will return soon.
My sis in law and I feel very fortunate to have found this B&B! We loved everything about it, from the beautiful home, soft sheets, fantastic views of the hill country to the best host and hostess!! We can’t wait to go back with our husbands soon!
The weekend here was so nice! Beautiful view, comfortable rooms, amazing porch! Definitely a relaxing weekend away! Thank you Doug and Vickie!
We really enjoyed hosting you and your friends this past weekend and hope you want be a stranger. Please come again soon.
Our visit exceeded our expectations on every front. The house was beautiful and comfortable, the hospitality was over the top and breakfast was perfect. We had made plans to go into the city for dinner and ditched them for more time on the porch. Bought some snacks and beverages on the way in and spent the evening camped on the porch.
Doug and Vicki were patient and attentive to our every need. All of us needed a balm for our soul and this was it!
A wonderful couple, easy to talk with and it seemed to be that Carl enjoyed the lounge chairs. Please come again.
We had a wonderful time! The owners are such nice hosts with a beautiful home....especially the view from the back patio. We enjoyed a fabulous weekend with trips to the nearby state parks to enjoy some hiking and then indulged in some great food at several area restaurants, .....not to mention the delicious breakfasts Vicki prepared for us each morning. We topped off each evening with a brilliant view of the sun setting over the hills as we lounged on the porch with a glass of wine. Very relaxing. Excellent hosts. Perfect accommodations. Highly recommend.
What a great review. That is the exact feeling we have about our property and hope more guest do too. Thank you and “Me Casa es Su Casa” please come again.
Bastrop is a wonderful small town 30 miles from Austin and during the fall and spring plenty of city functions on the weekends. One of the greatest places to be is on our awesome porch enjoying the View of the river valley and sipping on glass of wine or having a cold beer.
