The Inn at Dos Brisas in Washington, Texas

The Inn at Dos Brisas began as a family ranch retreat and evolved into a Relais & Chateaux luxury inn of nine Spanish mission-style haciendas and casitas on 300 acres of Lonestar countryside. Hospitality is nothing new here: The grounds have hosted Union soldiers, cotton farmers, horse trainers and cattlemen, and today welcomes guests to explore unhindered, whether that means relaxing with a massage or galloping full speed in one of the largest equestrian facilities in Texas.

Sleep in: With 1,200-thread-count Egyptian cotton sheets and a crackling fireplace nearby, there's plenty of time to luxuriate. Once the morning sun washes over the ranch, saddle up and go for a ride across meadows and streams, stopping to treat your horse to a drink at one of the property's ponds. Take a walk through the hundreds of varieties of roses in the garden, and settle in for a farm-to-table dining experience served on Bernardaud china. Marvel at the blanket of stars overhead.

This was our second stay in a hacienda at the inn at dos brisas and on both occasions have been extremely impressed with the level of service, the wonderful accommodation and the food. We are British expats who have lived in Houston for 6 years and this ranks as our best holiday experience in the US. The restaurant is fantastic and is probably the only place we have visited in Texas that competes with top end dining in London for the inventiveness, quality of ingredients and service. We dealt directly with Reuben and cannot commend him or his staff highly enough for their attentiveness. I would recommend the Inn at dos Brisas to anyone who is looking for somewhere to celebrate a special occasion or who simply wants an authentic Texan ranch experience (with luxury!)

This place clearly has the makings of a 5-star property and it started off that way when we first arrived with a personalized 2-day itinerary. The expanse of land is tranquil and beautiful with horses, well manicured lawns and golf carts. For being almost the only guests on property, they dropped the ball one too many times to get 5 stars. A mild miscommunication with the restaurant when we first arrived wouldn't have been a major issue but the fact the the same person who was responsible for the restaurant snafu was also responsible for an error on our dinner tab just left a bad taste in our mouth. He was otherwise a pleasant man. Our breakfast preordered the night before, arrived 20 minutes late but to make matters worse, wasn't served as we'd entirely ordered it. It was missing parts of the breakfast. By the time they were going to deliver the rest of the breakfast, we'd left to go for the farm tour, only to be told that the guide for the tour, Dr. King wasn't able to reached even 20-30 minutes after we'd been waiting. So we canceled the farm tour. The food was delectable both nights and Becca and Tara were superb. They're both a delight to talk to. Ruben is also very nice. In summary, the 5 star potential remains but the mistakes that were made were inexplicable given that we were easily the only guests (maybe there was one or two other couples), on property. For the cost, plus the automatic 18% service charge (which doesn't include tip for the staff), the errors were simply unacceptable. We'd still consider coming back. It's a lovely property and the casita was quite spacious and well appointed.

We had to be in a family reunion in the area when we booked the Inn at Dos Brisas. We were so happy when we drove in and it was perfectly maintained and was beautiful. There are only 6 Casitas and the one that we had was equipped with a nice swimming pool that you could regulate the heat, a screened in porch with swing bed, dining,etc and a huge bathroom adjoing a wonderful bedroom and living room. There is also a 5 star restaurant there with a wonderful view from the bar of the horses in their paddocks,etc. Wonderful staying there and what a find for a get away....

We stayed for three nights in one of the Casitas. I have read much about the wonderful Haciendas here on TA but let me tell you the Casitas are superb too. Large bedroom with huge four poster bed, kitchen with wet bar, walk in dressing room and wonderful terrace with views across the estate. The pool area is beautiful and was very quiet when we were there. The breakfasts were wonderful, we ate one in our room and the other two occasions took a late breakfast/brunch by the pool. We had thought about the all inclusive package but in the end as we could not use the benefit of that on our arrival or departure dates decided against and went for the dinner bed and breakfast. It was the riding that appealed particularly and we booked a couple of rides. But when we arrived the weather was too humid and hot. Difficult for the horses to breathe, which I understand as I was dosed up to the gills on antiallergy medication too. So shame not to experience the ranch on horseback but still loved it. The restaurant was very good, the food and service excellent. The only slight niggle was that there were only three entree options and these did not change in the three nights we were there. So we did not enjoy quite as much variety as we might have. It thus appeared to be structured as more of a short getaway rather than a destination resort expecting you to stay more than one or two nights.

The pros and cons of the Inn at Dos Brisas. The pros -- my wife and I came here for peace, quiet, and seclusion in a relaxed setting without having to jump on a plane and fly for hours. We certainly found it here, and only about an hour and a half drive from central Houston. We spent several days in one of the five haciendas on the property. Our hacienda was a cross between a large, elaborately yet comfortably furnished hotel suite and a free standing house. It was a free-standing, detached residence, separated from the neighboring haciendas by a lawn, landscaping, etc. We never heard any noises from outside our unit, and could have been miles from civilization. The interior was similar to a home, apart from the absence of a kitchen. We had a large living/dining area with a gas fireplace (turned off while we were there in late September, much to my wife's disappointment) and a wet bar with a stocked mini-fridge. The water and sodas (and one bottle of wine) and an assortment of chips were complimentary and restocked upon request. This area also had a butler's pantry/door in which the hotel staff could leave the morning's breakfast (or room service) from the outside without entering the suite. We also had a large bedroom which overlooked our own private pool (about half-sized) as well as an absolutely enormous bathroom, complete with a soaking tub (with water feature facing it right outside the large window) and mammoth stone shower area. There also was an outdoor shower (with privacy screen) connecting the bathroom with the pool area, plus a spacious screened porch with ample seating and a swinging bed which was great for watching the stars at night without the nuisance of mosquitos. Our hacienda came with its own golf cart for exploring the property. We thoroughly enjoyed our skeet shooting sessions as well as in-room massages, but were disappointed to learn upon arrival that our scheduled trail ride had been cancelled because the staff deemed the late-September weather to be too hot for the horses. Our principal "con" likely places us in a small minority of Dos Brisas guests, because the property's restaurant is listed as the only five-star restaurant in Texas. But we did not care for the food. For our taste, it was excessively elaborate and extremely expensive, with no other options on the property at all. The restaurant would no doubt delight a "foodie" but frankly we ended up skipping our final pre-paid dinner in the five-star restaurant and instead drove into Brenham (about 12-15 miles away) to find something less elaborate and more to our taste. This ties into our overall observation of the property, which is that it is not as "complete" as an expensive resort normally would be. Apart from the five haciendas and a couple of duplex lodges, the five-star restaurant, a small pond, one tennis court with a basketball hoop attached, and a most selection of activities, it lacks the selection of dining and other options you would normally expect of an expensive, self-contained resort in a relatively remote location. The rest of the buildings on the property are part of the working areas of the ranch (horse barns, etc., in which people may board their horses). The five-star dining was the only food option unless you wanted to leave the property and drive about 6 miles into the small town of Chappell Hill, about 12-15 miles to Brenham, or farther to College Station. You can't just grab a quick sandwich or some ice cream. Same if you forget anything -- toothbrush, aspirin, etc. They don't have even the small gift shop/sundries area nearly ubiquitous to all hotels, much less resorts that you expect to be self-contained given their location, so again you would be left to drive off the property and several miles down two-lane country roads. The staff was incredibly nice and seemed to try to be accommodating, but things just never seemed to click whenever we would ask a question or leave a message with the front desk as we were told to do if we needed anything. Dos Brisas is a wonderful place to escape the pressures of Houston or Dallas for a couple of days and just sit in your own pool or relax on the screened porch after dark, but my wife and I were frequently frustrated by the staff's lack of organization/coordination and the absence of many basic elements you expect of resorts at this price point. We definitely will return, but will do so with the understanding that we will need to bring more provisions with us and will expect to have to leave the property at least once a day for a meal with which we are comfortable.
