For an authentic taste of the great state of Texas, follow the once dusty trail, traveled by the likes of Davy Crockett and Sam Houston, along the LaBahia Trail (FM 390), to the lovely Mariposa Ranch Bed & Breakfast, near Brenham. Located in Washington County, between Houston and Austin, you’ll not only find the foothills of the beautiful Texas hill country here, but you’ll also find the birthplace of Texas, where much of Texas history was made.

Mariposa Ranch owners, Charles and Johnna Chamberlain, enjoy dishing up a Texas size helping of hospitality to those who come to share their secluded, and sumptuous, surroundings.Mariposa House The B & B, situated on 100 acres of rolling ranch land, offers visitors a private getaway where they can kick back, relax and enjoy the solitude.

With a wide variety of lodging available there’s sure to be something to please everyone. Guests can choose from; lavish suites in the 1836 Greek Revival home, or set up housekeeping in the original turn-of-the-century homestead, lounge around in the large comfortable rooms of the 1860 plantation home, relax on the front porch of the 1820 log cabin, play pioneer in the cozy settler’s cottage, dream of the old west in the ranch hands bunkhouse, or kick off your boots in the authentic cowboy cabin.Mariposa Texas Ranger Log Cabin

Charles and Johnna have made so many special touches available during your stay you won’t want to leave. You can lounge in a Jacuzzi-for-two with a glass of fine wine, sit by the fireplace on a chilly evening, indulge in a massage, have a gourmet dinner prepared especially for you, or have a picnic basket packed with goodies for a hike. The ranch provides expert hosting and accommodations for business meetings, retreats, reunions and especially weddings. Mariposa Chapel

Whether you choose to eat in your private accommodations or join in a lively conversation around the elegant breakfast table, you won’t leave hungry. A gourmet breakfast feast may include Mariposa specialties such as: Butterfly Juice, Texas Ranger Baked Eggs, Brazos Baked French Toast, Divine Pears with Raspberry Sauce, and Peach Muffins.
