Old Rock House Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 5 Hico B&B and Inns
Reviewed 16 July 2012

The Old Rock House Bed and Breakfast is in a great location. Two hours from Dallas and a stones throw away for various small towns full of great shopping and scenic views. The house itself is directly off the highway but, perfectly hidden.

The minute you crack open the front door and step inside the thick walls onto the old creaky floors, you feel like you've stepped into history. The house is so unique and quaint. The decor is somewhere between rustic, victorian, shabby chic and your grandma's house. It is super cozy and relaxing. The bedrooms are spacious with plush beds, tall windows and beadboard ceilings all lovingly restored. The kitchen could be used to cook a full family dinner with all the amenities provided.

My husband, daughter (six yrs. old) and I spent the weekend there and loved every second. There was a small tv to keep us from hearing "MOM! DAD!" while we rocked on the front porch with wine glass in hand and listened to the rain in the meadow. We walked to the grocery store for snacks and wine. The store is close enough that you could get knee walking drunk and still get home without incident. Maybe next time if we don't bring the kiddo with us we might try it! I can't wait to spend sometime there with friends, family or just me and the hubby.

Room Tip: No inn keeper so you get complete privacy while staying here.

We really enjoyed our stay at the old rock house. We loved the decor and the warm feeling of the house. The work they have done on this house is absolutely amazing! It has all the comforts of home and the bed was the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in! We will definitely be back!

When we pulled up to the Old Rock House it looked really small from the outside. How deceiving! It was amazing! When you step into the beautiful rock entry, it looks so much larger inside! It actually felt spacious! The bedrooms are large and the whole house is beautifully decorated. The owners left no detail unattended! It felt warm, inviting and very clean! It was like stepping back in time and was so comfortable, we hated to leave. I will definitely recommend it to my friends and look forward to coming back!

My husband and I needed an easy get-away and decided to visit The Old Rock House. The rooms were beautiful and clean. There was plenty to do around town and in nearby Stephenville. We spent one afternoon doing nothing but enjoying the peace and quiet. It exceeded our expectations, and we cannot wait to spend another weekend there.

The Old Rock House Bed & Breakfast in Hico is such a charming little place! The decorating is incredible and the original rock walls and wood floors take you right back to the days it was built in the 1800's.... except with the most comfortable beds, a hot shower, and a coffee pot. The house was all ours and we loved that the Hico town square was right around the corner for some shopping and dinner. Using the breakfast voucher at the Koffee Kup was easy and so convenient -- and delicious!! It was such a great weekend to just kick back and enjoy the country. We will most definitely be coming back!

We stayed at this precious house with a few of our friends just to get away for the weekend and relax. The accommodations couldn't have been any nicer! I loved the fact that we had the house to ourselves, with plenty of space to spread out. In the morning we'd get our coffee, sit on the front porch, and enjoy the country atmosphere.We shopped in Hico, where the streets were decorated for Christmas. It was magical. We were given a voucher for breakfast at "The Coffee Cup" restaurant which was good old southern cooking. The weekend went way too fast, but we will be back again. I highly recommend the Old Rock House.

Room Tip: The house is so charming and comfortable.
