Pecan Street Inn
1010 Pecan Street, Bastrop, TX
Consistently winning the “Best of Bastrop County” contest every year in the B&B category, the Pecan Street Inn is the stately 1903 Zeiten-Morris Home. Located within walking distance to Bastrop’s Main Street, the Pecan Street Inn is an ideal choice for family stays, weddings and receptions.
The Pecan Street Inn Bed and Breakfast is an elegant turn-of-the-century Victorian home and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and designated a City of Bastrop Landmark. The Pecan Street Inn has been named Bastrop County’s “BEST” Bed and Breakfast the past four years. Nestled under a grove of native pecan trees, Pecan Street Inn offers turn-of-the-century Victorian lodging and accommodations for romantic weekends and vacation getaways.
The quiet location is at the gateway to Bastrop’s tree-canopied Silk Stocking Row lined with National Register antebellum, Victorian and Prairie Style homes. It is only 1-1/2 blocks to historic downtown and 2 blocks to the Colorado River and Riverwalk hike and bike trail. Restaurants, antique emporiums (including the oldest drugstore in Texas, complete with Ice Cream Shoppe), and upscale boutiques are all within an easy walk. The uniqueness of the picturesque little town and its surroundings accounts for the 40+ movies produced here.
Beautifully appointed with tasteful American antiques, Pecan Street Inn Bed and Breakfast features romantic fireplaces, elaborate millwork, long leaf heart of pine floors, pocket doors and restored lighting. 12′ ceilings, fans, old wavy glass windows with transoms indicative of the Victorian period are found through the Inn.
It is not “fussy”, though, so guests can relax in the front or back parlors that are stocked with TV/VCR, games, books and toys for the children. Or take your book outside to the big wrap-around porch and sit a spell on the Victorian rockers, sofas and swings.
As old as the Inn is, nothing has been spared in its upgrading. A fully equipped country kitchen is available for guests’ use, as is covered off-street parking and even a laundry room. An outdoor deck with grill for al fresco dining overlooks the old barn (soon to be renovated) and rope swing which lures young and old.
Children and small pets can be welcomed but not inside smoking.
