I snapped this picture that is in a photo album in the Inn, but it also appears on their website. An attic fan and the cupola helped to cool the large house which Albert Steves loved to fill up with friends and family. The original house had 8 bedrooms and one "facility".
Another photo in the album shows the large attic fan that was part of the original structure.

The living room and dining rooms face each other and both have large fireplaces. The pictures don't show the size of the rooms, but they are large. The dining room table seats 10 and until our group arrived it was nicely set and arranged as if to serve a meal. The B&B serves meals on the glassed in porch where there are beautiful views of the property.
I love this porch! It was cold and damp on this trip, but both mornings I enjoyed a cup of coffee while sitting in a rocking chair enjoying the view of the Texas Hill Country on a fall morning.
