Bar S Ranch Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #5 of 8 Palestine B&B and Inns
Reviewed 17 March 2016 via mobile

We enjoyed the stay. Quite and different. The bed was comfortable and our room was decorated with lots of original ideas. Walked the grounds to get some exercise after a day in the car. Close to food and shopping. Historical Palestine was interesting.

Stayed: March 2016, travelled as a couple

As a travel nurse, my husband and I spent the month of December with the gals and animals at Bar S Ranch...... Lovely place, peace & quiet, at its best. We spent the month in the John Deere cabin, though we had everything we needed, kitchenette, bathroom, living room and bedroom, it was just to small for long term living for 2 people. The full size bed in the bed room left little room for walking, and provided little storage for a long term stay for 2 people.... Also, the bathroom was off the bed room and was about the size of a standard closet and had no door. The shower was a single shower with a huge RAIN shower head..... Which was great until I needed to shave my legs........ But overall I loved my time there, and would refer anyone looking for rustic, relaxation to stay there

Tucked away in the woods just south of Palestine, Texas just off FM 2419 is a small slice of rustic heaven. Our long holiday weekend plans were to take our grandchildren to Grapeland Safari (Grapeland, Texas) and for a ride leaving from Palestine on the Texas State Railroad. An internet search pulled up the Bar-S Ranch Resort that I figured would add another flavor to the adventure.
It turns out that the Bar-S fit the bill, a quiet place away from the noise, hustle, and bustle near our two entertainment destinations that you would be hard pressed to find something more rustic. Our accommodation was one room of an 1891 dog-run design house. Granted, it was a bit crowded for 5 of us but three were children ages 2, 3 and 5. So, inside camping was not a negative for them.
The owners don’t pull any punches on trying to prepare their guests for the rusticity. They let you know on their webpage that it is in the woods with ants, ticks, spiders, mosquitos, lizards, frogs, snakes and other critters. It has a stocked fishing pond, children’s playground, a wedding chapel, tent camping area, and benches where you can relax and read a book.
Breakfast of the bed & breakfast offering was at very minimum equal to any Holiday Inn Express – a place I stay 30-40 nights a year. AC was working just fine in the 1891 house providing an adequate barrier to humid 95 degree temperature.
Our assigned room was the "La Grange Room." It is named after the famous "Chicken Ranch" remembered fondly by several decades of Texas A&M-College Station students. It features an antique bed, 1800's settee, and a breakfast bar that is a glass top and a galvanized chicken hatchery with antique bar stools. There is also an antique armoire. The bath features a maids tub with a shower ring.
Our grandkids loved it, despite a few ant bites. Their world was opened up to roam as opposed to being confined to a hotel room. We antagonized doodle bugs, chased lizards, captured a frog, a decorative concrete chicken with its head broken off, and discovered a rusting ghost of a Model T.
My wife and I agreed that this place would not be for everyone, so don’t go expecting the Ritz. Go to have a good time. After all, it is rustic.
Check out the ranch at their web page: http://www.barsranchresort.com. It’s a good place to sip, play checkers, and relax.
