Setting...Picturesque. The Cornflower Cottage...beautiful, charming, cozy (all of the things a cottage should be). The only bad thing about The Prairie is having to leave. Special thanks to Kathy for giving our stay a personal touch. To saying nothing of her killer breakfasts! Will return to the Prairie again!

We chose The Prairie as the site of a very special event.......an all-girl cousin reunion! There were 24 of us, spanning 5 generations, so it was very special indeed. The lodgings were perfect, with plenty of room for all. The cottages were just lovely, with every detail lovingly attended to. The staff couldn't have been nicer and the breakfast was...

The Prairie combines that special Shabby Chic feel with Texas country feel. Stay was relaxing. The breakfast service was outstanding! You will need to drive to Round Top or Brenham Texas to eat. The first city is 5 miles away and the second about 20 miles.
