Our Smithville TX Bed and Breakfast is located in the beautiful town of Smithville in Central Texas.  The charming turn-of-the-century Inn has been lovingly restored to its original beauty while featuring soft restful colors and comfortable french country furnishings.  The Katy House Bed and Breakfast originally opened in 1994.

Your innkeepers, Stu and Linda, will introduce you to a great local experience — or just leave you alone if you’re here to rest. Each of our guest rooms include private baths, free Wi-Fi flat screen HD TV, and include a full hot breakfast served in our dining room every morning.

From the house you can walk just one block or less to Smithville’s dining, shopping and entertainment venues. The City of Smithville is ideally situated in a central location between Houston and Austin along the Highway 71 corridor.   Our quiet country town is just a 45-minute drive from Austin and about two-hour drive from either San Antonio or Houston.  San Marcos and Bryan/College Station, are also within two hours drive.  This makes Smithville a very convenient location to visit.  Buescher State Park is just outside of town, and Bastrop State Park is just about 10 miles down Park 1C Road.  Smithville boasts great shopping, dining and entertainment options, an airport, a recreation center, some of the finest city parks anywhere and some of the friendliest people on the planet.  You will feel welcome in Smithville!
