Rachel Ashwells B&B Ranch



While we were in Texas my friend Theresa Cano got invited to tour Rachel Ashwells B&B. She could bring 2 guest and I was lucky enough to get chosen for the tour!

The place is breath taking! My pictures don't even do it justice! It was rainy the day we were there and I can only imagine how lovely the place must look when the sun in shining! 

Rachel and her assistant was our tour guides! 

I've only shown the main house in this post! Guest cottages will come later! It was hard to take whole room pictures of the house because Rachel and her staff were staying there during the big show. So.......all of their belongs invaded most of the space!

I hope you enjoy the tour!

Thanks for sharing these pictures I love the "hominess" of this place feminine but yet rustic and totally livable. It is hard to book though as I have called and emailed and no luck. Can't wait to see your pictures of the cottages!
Thanks so much for sharing!

Rachel is the nicest person you will ever meet. I love looking at the pictures. She bought a lot of furniture from us for her ranch and I keep looking to see if I can find our pieces. So glad you got to take the tour. Can't wait for your other pictures!

Take care, Sue

What an amazing place. Just love the direction she has gone...so perfect. There are so many great talented people and events in Texas. I have to make it there some day and enjoy a bit of it. I think booking a room at Rachel's would be a perfect way to experience it.
