You're invited to visit the Katy House Bed & Breakfast, located in the beautiful, old railroad town of Smithville, Texas. This charming, turn-of-the-century B & B is handsomely decorated in American antiques and railroad memorabilia. It has been lovingly restored to its original beauty, keeping the guests' comfort and convenience in mind. Choose from five unique guest accommodations. All guest rooms offer a queen-sized bed and private bathroom. A delicious, full country breakfast is served in the main dining room every morning. You will be able to enjoy all Smithville and Bastrop County have to offer, including golfing, walking or biking tours, and historical sites. Lake Bastrop, Bastrop State Park and Buescher State Park are only minutes away and offer several additional recreational activities such as boating, swimming and picnicking. Smithville is located in the heart and soul of Central Texas. The quiet, country town is a 45-minute drive from Austin and about a two-hour drive from either San Antonio or Houston. Located off Highway 71, one of the prettiest springtime drives in the Texas foothill country, Smithville is accessible by car or small plane. Built as a railroad town in the 1880s, trains still travel daily through Smithville, but no longer offer a passenger service.
