About The Cottages on Mill Creek
The Cottages on Mill Creek is a newly-renovated B&B located eight miles from Round Top, Texas, population 90. Our tagline is Just far enough from Round Top Square! We believe we are in the perfect location to take advantage of the best the town and the countryside have to offer!
The town of Round Top offers world class art and music. There are numerous shops and galleries offering framed art, photography, sculpture, woodworking, quilts, jewelry, and more. On both Henkel and Bybee Square, shoppers may find unique clothing, antiques, and jewelry. In addition, fabulous food awaits at nationally featured Royer’s Café and their new addition, The Pie Haven. Traveling toward Hwy 290 on Hwy 237 you’ll pass even more shopping opportunities and dining at the Stone Cellar (with its historic dance hall and delicious pizza), on your way to Festival Hill with its amazing concert hall and world class music under the direction of James Dick. Just a short drive in the opposite direction past Prost wine bar toward La Grange, you’ll find Junk Gypsy World Headquarters.
As if town life didn’t offer enough choices, there are numerous must-see countryside stops, including the Winedale Historical Center, Willow Springs Bridge (one of the few remaining metal suspension bridges), and the Painted Churches, as well as historic sites and cemeteries and quaint communities. Rachel Ashwell’s Prairie is adjacent to The Cottages.
Our own property offers days of relaxation in and of itself. Feed carrots or apples to the miniature horses or donkeys. Cast a line into our stocked fishing pond, or stroll our 35 acres with Mill Creek meandering through the middle. The property is great for a wooded hike or a stroll in open fields. If it’s pure relaxation you’re after, grab a rocker on one of the cottage porches, throw some logs into the firepit, or a burger on the grill on one of our many quiet patios. In the evening, enjoy the lighted 600+ sq ft back patio overlooking the pond while you sip a glass of wine.
Accommodations include two historic area cottages, one of which was the original dwelling on the property, and three guestrooms in the main house. The smaller cottage, Bliss, features one bedroom and sleeps 1-3 people. The larger cottage, Comfort, has three bedrooms and sleeps 4-8 people. Both cottages have full kitchens, living areas, and private patios. The main house rooms include one upstairs master suite with a private bathroom and coffee maker, and two rooms which may share a bathroom, Keurig coffee-maker, mini-refrigerator, and microwave. Breakfast is included in all lodging options and may be self-serve, delivered, or enjoyed on the back patio.
Whatever your reason for visiting The Cottages on Mill Creek, you are sure to leave relaxed and refreshed, eager for the next opportunity to escape to our little slice of paradise!
