Fodor's Expert Review Gamel House
224 San Antonio St., Mason, Texas, 76856, USA
On the town square, the Gamel Guest House is one of the first houses ever built in Mason. Erected in to 1869 by cattle baron John W. Gamel, this guesthouse has a tranquil sitting area off the back porch beneath a shady oak tree The small, two-bed, two-bathroom cabin is well appointed with antiques, including the Gamel family's original dining-room table and claw-foot bathtub. Those who love feeling like they've stepped back in time will feel right at home here. Those who like a little more modernity may feel a bit cramped. $150 per night for the entire house with a two-night minimum.
