I will come back in the near future. If you enjoy high ceilings, this is the spot.

Nice b&b. The room was spacious and clean. The balcony was really great. For the price the rooftop rooms are a great option and the place feels secluded yet still close to everything. Transit is super close and Menil and a host of bars and restaurants are close by. I'm sure s family could stay here but this place is more suited to artists and business folk. If I were here on business I'd snag an upper floor room. I'll definitely stay here again.

My favorite place to stay in Houston. The building is architecturally interesting, it has a modern, light and airy feel. They provide made-to-order breakfasts, which are wonderful. I would highly, highly recommend the Treehouse loft if you can get it. It has extremely high loft ceilings, it is spacious and has a great long closet and enormous bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub. The best thing is that you have a beautiful view of the Houston skyline over the treetops. At night with the buildings lit up, it makes for a very romantic setting, even if you are by yourself!

Lisa was a great host and the room was exact what I needed for my short business trip. Very good location, easy to get downtown and good food and bars in walking distance

Character and charm. These 2 words describe the Modern Treehouse B&B and its guests from top to bottom. Each room has a different vibe but contain this light and airy feel throughout. The high ceilings and spiral staircases make this house super fun to explore :) Lisa was very accommodating of our late arrival even though we had only spoke on the phone once before arriving. She was also able to provide us with great suggestions for late-night food and beer when we got in to Houston. She definitely knows the area well and you can tell she's enthusiastic about it! We stayed in the top-floor master bedroom suite and the whole bedroom/bathroom was amazing. Words can't do it justice. We slept like queens in the king size bed and while the shower was awesome (some high-tech showerheads and stone floors), I wish I had more time to use the jacuzzi tub with skylight overhead. To top it all off, there was a varied breakfast spread in the main dining area for the entire B&B ready as early as 7am. Fresh fruit salad, greek yogurt, strawberry smoothie, orange juice, granola, homemade bread, coffee/espresso, just about anything you'd want in the morning! Best of all, there is a professional in-house chef who cooked made-to-order omelettes. It was definitely a treat to be able to stay at Lisa's B&B! :) Highly recommended.

I love meeting new people & running the Modern B & B. I am also active in the Houston running community. I love to go out i.e. We have a Monday night group that goes to a good Greek Restaurant./bar, Tuesday guests & friend go to Trivia at a small local bar. Wednesdays We go on a run & then have beers at Valhalla which is a pub on the Rice campus. I also like to thrift shop & Houston has amazing Thrift shops. I own & Run Modern City Properties as well which is a real estate firm. We represent buyers , renters & sellers. Not just a sometimes realtor...I close several deals a month & know my stuff. I love to read, knit sometimes and make great Gin & Tonics & Gazpacho. Just read the Hunger Games... Great. I answer the iPhone 24/7 and love it.
