About Susan McGee
Having dreamed of operating a B&B all of my adult life, I took an early retirement and found Historic Holle House, a unique architectural gem in Brenham, Texas. I looked at hundreds of homes, but kept coming back to Holle House because it's charm called me to make it a beautiful and comfortable place for friends and families to visit, relax and make their own memories here.
Susan McGee purchased this House in 2014
Why Susan McGee chose Brenham
The home was built 1910, in the Four Square American Movement style and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It has a very unique Art Deco feel inside with original beamed ceilings, beautiful wood burning fireplace, built in book cases, and huge archway over entry. The home also sits on a large half acre lot, graced with Pecan trees, Magnolia, and Crepe Myrtles. It has a huge wrap around porch downstairs as well as a big covered porch that runs across the entire front of the home on the second floor. It is only five blocks to the downtown area, a nice walk or easy bike ride away. Downtown offers a variety of things to do and see, as well as several great places to eat. And nearby are some great country drives to see other historical sights such as Washington on the Brazos, Chappell Hill, Round Top and Festival Hill, plus many other unique little Texas towns with plenty to see and do.
What makes this House unique
Each floor of the home can be rented separately or together for a discount. So it can sleep anywhere from 6 to 16 people, depending on your group's needs. It has all the comforts of home, with no detail overlooked. It likely has everything that you have in your own home, such as a stocked spice cabinet, paper goods and plastic ware as well as crystal and china, plus cable TV in most rooms, and free Wi-Fi. Come and make Historic Holle House your home away from home!

A wonderful chilly, rainy, but cozy stay!
The home is not only historic, but beautiful and interesting. While our stay was a very chilly and wet one, we still had a great time. Susan goes above and beyond to make your stay great. It was so chilly and rainy that we just stayed in the home the first night and had the delicious quiche for dinner. She provides breakfast for both mornings and snacks. Plenty of towels and blankets for everyone.
Hospitality - Historic with modern comforts
The owner provides hospitality in spades. We arrived to a fully stocked kitchen, complete with enough breakfast meals to last throughout our stay. The fridge was stocked with new bottles of all condiments, juice, milk, cream, butter and the list goes on. There were fresh, clean, comfortable robes for each person. We were made to feel welcome and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
It was wonderful to have Debbie and her group of friends stay at Historic Holle House. They were such a nice group of ladies and they left the place in good shape. I welcome them back anytime!
