Texas bed and breakfasts, Bogarts in Navasota

DSC04266 DSC04307 DSC04305 DSC04431 DSC04436It may be a little more work to stay in bed and breakfasts, or at a place you found on airbnb, but it is worth it for the charm, for the people, and for the corners of town you might not otherwise see. We just got together with family from San Antonio and Bryan, Texas at Bogart’s Casa Blanca in Navasota, half an hour from Bryan/College Station. We got the whole top floor of one of the buildings, with two bedrooms, a kitchen, dining room, and living room. It is expertly furnished in an eclectic style with leather couches, antiques, knotty pine and dark red walls. There is a day bed in the living room, so it slept all five of us just fine. There is a pool and breakfast in a room with a mannequin sitting at a shiny piano. In the gardens are a funky wedding canopy building and lots of flowers and trees, including a couple of glorious live oaks. It’s Texas, run by Dawyne who used to own the Bogarts on Heights Bvd. in Houston.

It is a lot more fun to find a place we can all stay at rather than get a hotel and commute between it and our children’s apartments in town. We may come back here, but if we don’t we’ll instead find another funky place to all get together.
