When you’re seeing what the Lone Star State has to offer, there are plenty of options for accommodations. You can camp under the stars, you could stay in a four-star hotel, or you could cozy up in one of the hundreds of beautiful bed and breakfasts in Texas.
Bed and breakfasts are a good option if you want to really get to know the area where you’re staying. Unlike a hotel where you check in and check out and are largely left alone, in a bed and breakfast you have the opportunity to talk to your fellow boarders as well as the owners, who can give you great tips about what to do and see in each location. From rustic getaways to elaborate historic mansions, here are 10 unique bed and breakfasts in Texas.

This adorable B&B is located within walking distance to many of Fredericksburg’s popular attractions in the beautiful downtown area. You can stay in one of 13 beautiful cottages.
