Lonesome Dove Bed & Breakfast, Burton, Texas
Rustic 1850's Log Cabin Hideaway
by Carl Burnham
Situated next to a 3 acre pond on a 41 acre ranch in rural Washington County, Lonesome Dove B&B is two-story restored cabin built with chinked logs. As we arrived late in the day, we entered to find peaceful music playing and glowing candles welcoming our arrival.
The cabin is appointed with country decorations, including photographs of the owner's ancestors from more simple times.
A TV/VCR is in the downstairs corner, along with videos (including Lonesome Dove), armoire, two sofas, chairs, and sitting table.
Closeup of Chinked Logs and Stairway
As we made our way upstairs to the bedroom, we admired the antique tools and hides along the wall, and the unique wood banister.
Bedroom With Exposed Beams
The bedroom upstairs includes a log framed king-sized bed, with a queen-sized sleeper sofa, and armoire. The hardwood floors and log walls had us imagining being in the Old West, and what it was like before all of our modern conveniences.
Kitchenette Entrance and Breakfast Basket
Private Bath With Clawfoot Tub
Lonesome Dove Fishing Pond
Firepit by the Pond
There is no smoking or pets allowed. We did met a very friendly cat by the cabin, which loved the attention we gave it. The Barnetts plan to build additional cabins on the property in the future.
We would like to thank the Barnetts for assisting with our feature and accommodating us. Ask for their Romantic Package which includes a bottle of wine, chocolates and fresh flowers or roses.
