The Salt Lick B&B is located in Spring, Texas, west of I-45 in the quiet, safe Memorial Northwest neighborhood. Located 30 minutes north of downtown Houston, we are close to The Woodlands, ExxonMobil Campus, parks, playgrounds, golf courses, movie theaters, walking and biking trails, gyms, quality restaurants, and shopping malls.
The lush yard has a salt water unheated swimming pool with cool jacuzzi, both of which are open year-round for those brave enough to enjoy them during the winter! Winters are mild here, lasting December through February, with average temperatures of 45ºF to 66ºF. The yard features an outdoor gazebo, lounge chairs and seating, an 8'x14' rectangular trampoline with safety netting, fire pit, and a dual bbq (charcoal and gas). Monarch butterflies emerge from cocoons in the bushes (or on the furniture!) almost year-round.
This four bedroom, two and a half bath B&B is lovingly decorated with formal and informal Texas antiques and other furnishings. Two bedrooms are available in the right wing of the home. The remaining two bedrooms are the owner's bedroom (which makes up the left wing of the home) and office.
The Cashmere Room is a beautiful second floor two twin bedroom that overlooks the front yard. It features:
* Memory foam topped mattresses

Please be sure to specify that you are inquiring about the Texas house, not the Seattle cottage. You may also find us at thesaltlickbedandbreakfast (with the usual .c ending!). Thank you.
My primary considerations were location, price, and convenience - and the Salt Lick B&B delivered. It's not a fancy B&B with doilies and fancy formal furniture, but it's a decent, clean, and organized house to stay in, plenty of room if you need to hang out for a while, and the host is super helpful and responsive. And there were cookies! (I did not partake in the breakfast part of the B&B experience, so I can't speak to that at all.)
