Guest rooms at The Inn at Dos Brisas in Washington, Texas, are more like private homes. Situated on 300 acres, the resort only offers nine guest rooms — this includes four casitas, which are the original, smaller accommodations. Inside the rooms you’ll find high-pitched ceilings, dark wooden accents, leather furnishings and original artwork. These rooms have king beds, kitchenettes, private patios, gas fireplaces and flat-screen TVs inside elegant armoires. A blend of ranch-style and modern design, the kitchenette, bathroom and spacious living room are finished with pillows, bed linens and artwork in a western style motif. The four-foot high beds offer the upmost in comfort, complete with 1,200-count Egyptian cotton linens and Decker pillows; distressed leather couches sit at the end of the bed, facing the fireplace. A wooden writing desk offers space for last-minute emails using the resort’s complimentary Wi-Fi. Although the five recently completed haciendas feature larger bathrooms with oversized Jacuzzi tubs, the four older casitas still have spacious bathrooms with a marble shower and bathtub. Exit the guest room through two tall French doors that open up onto a private porch complete with lounge furniture and an area to park the golf cart you’ll use to navigate the sprawling landscape.
The Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel's haciendas are its newer, larger accommodations, with huge living rooms, bedrooms and bathrooms. A grand half bath is by the entryway, while the master bath in the back is practically the size of a regular hotel guest room and includes a deep soaking tub, walk-in shower and large closet. The haciendas also include two large fireplaces, a wet bar, large secretary desk and dining table. Architectural details include arched doorways, plaster walls and thatched ceilings with wood beams. French doors lead out to a private deck with plunge pool and screened-in porch.
