Looking for BLUES HISTORY?

The finishing touch: ART makes a difference!

I went on and on about my stay out at the McMullen Ranch guest house near Whitehall... but I couldn't show you the interior of the old farmhouse where I stayed until we put the final touches on the interior... which, coincidentally happened to be my art work which covers the walls. And it looks pretty good (If I must say so myself!).

The 1900 farmhouse sits a good 150 yards off of a country road in southern Grimes County.
It has been completely overhauled... The exterior appears much as it did when the German farmers who lived there called it home...
But the inside has been freshly remodeled and beautifully decorated. Still, visitors can enjoy the old- fashioned Texas farm life, with lots of WOOD, wood floors, wood burning stove for heat in the winter, and board and batten wooden walls, just like everybody used in times past.

The spacious kitchen is well equipped, and has modern amenities such as coffee-maker and micro-wave oven.

Surrounded by quiet and the sounds of nature, the cute, intimate dining room is perfect for conversation.

The bedrooms are comfortable and yet filled with light and austere country life. There will be curtains installed here, but I enjoyed not having any, as the sun can wake you up in the morning. This bedroom sleeps three.

The east bedroom faces the rising sun, and sleeps two. One on the bed, one on the floor... just kidding. These beds are primo- very comfortable, and provide for excellent sleeping, even through a thunderstorm!

Still, my favorite part of the old place is the porch, which must have fifty foot of breezeway which wraps around three sides of the house.

Pretty cool huh? Let me know if you ever need the place, I'll try to get you a deal, my "Blogger's Discount"!
