Old Kitchen

Last Year my friend and I lost in New Braunfels and stopped at B&B Inn on Hunt Rd for directions,
the place was like a glimpse from the past and the owner was so friendly, she walked us through the territory, showed us the rooms and told story about how she and her departed husband rebuild the 1872 year homestead into a B&B Inn. The atmosphere of that place stood with me like I visited my grandma...
Thank you all for the support and kind words about my blog.
