This is the bed & breakfast where we stayed on the first night of our honeymoon. It was about halfway between where we had our wedding and our house in Austin, so it was a great location for us.
The prices ranged from $100 to $150, depending on the room. There are four lovely rooms! We stayed in the one downstairs that I picked out for it's great claw foot bathtub in the big bathroom.
The room was very nice and the bed was very comfy. Our room even opened right out in to the common room that had a couch and tv (where we had our cookies & ice cream).
The hostess was very friendly and cooked us a delicious breakfast of muffins, breakfast casserole, and fruit. The grapefruit even had a little bunny in it to celebrate Easter :)
Check the website for more pictures and info- they have lots of special packages and do weddings & murder mystery evenings.
If you're in the area, be sure and stay the night at Bed & Breakfast at Tiffany's!
Unique Quality: Mark called ahead to arrange to have me some cookies and ice cream ready when we got there. He knows how much I love ice cream. :) They were arranged on a lovely tray - that is what is in the picture with me!

This property was established during the early 1850’s when a Colonel Henry Clay Swanson, from Alabama, moved to East Texas and settled near Palestine. Along with his brother, the Colonel started purchasing large amounts of land and eventually created a 15,000 acre southern plantation. The home survived the 1946 Palestine tornado which left 15 people dead and served as a temporary morgue for 11 bodies until the road to the town could be cleared. The property was purchased by author/photographer Osjetea Briggs ("A WALK IN MY MOCCASINS") in 1955 and who resided there for over 40 years. Today the property is owned by Carrie O'Brien who has restored the home to its present condition and turned it into an elegant southern plantation bed and breakfast.
Unique Quality: There are 4 suites in all to choose from varying from $100 to $150pn. Great pain has been taken to detail in both the menu items and the furnishings. Quite a unique place to stay and well worth the visit.
