Policies

We look forward to hosting you at The Historic Hill House and Farm and hope you enjoy your historic Texas country getaway.

Rates:  Traditional rates offer nightly accommodations, as well as a gourmet sit-down breakfast within our restaurant during meal hours.  Rates begin at $195.  Rates, minus $50, are available for a single-occupancy stay. Rates do not include all applicable taxes and an 18% service charge.

Arrival and Departure:  Check-in is between 3 pm and 6 pm.  Please let us know if you are arriving after 6 pm.  Check out is 12 pm. The Historic Hill House and Farm is located at 3603 FM 1725, between New Waverly and Coldspring, 30 miles north of The Woodlands and 60 miles north of Houston near the Sam Houston National Forest.

Deposits: Room reservations require a deposit of 50% of the stay, preferably on a major credit card.  

Cancellation:  Deposits are refundable, less a $50 administrative fee, if cancelled at least 30 days in advance of arrival. At 14 days prior to arrival, we will charge the remaining balance of the room and tax charges to the credit card on file. At this point, the entire reservation is non-refundable. Should cancellation occur within this window, we will issue a voucher valid for 50% of the total amount charged that may be used toward a future stay within one year. Reducing the length of stay or an early departure within 14 days of your arrival is considered a cancellation. Due to the small size of our inn, cancellations affect us significantly; therefore, we must hold firmly to our cancellation policy. To mitigate this risk, we recommend that you consider the purchase of travel insurance.  Due to the small size of our inn, we are greatly affected by untimely cancellations and we firmly adhere to our cancellation policy.

Children:  We welcome children 16 and older at all times during the year.  Children under the age of 16 are welcome during specific times of the year, including the summer months between Memorial Day and Labor Day, Spring Break, or if the entire property is rented.  Please let us know if you are bringing children with you for your stay. We have local nanny services we are happy to book for you. Minor children must be accompanied by an adult at all times on the property. The responsible adult must agree in writing not to leave a minor child unattended on the premises at any time during their stay and to control the minor's behavior during their stay so as to preserve the expected peace and quiet of other guests and to prevent any injury to any person or damage to any property.

Additional Guests:  All rates are based on double occupancy.  Specific rooms with pullout sofas will allow for up to four additional guests.  These accommodations include all cottage and pool barn rooms.  There is an additional charge of $25 plus taxes and 18% service charge per person per night.

Smoking:  Our property is a smoke-free facility.  There is no smoking allowed indoors or outdoors.  There is a $250 penalty for violating the policy.

Alcohol:  Under Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission (TABC) rules, no outside alcoholic beverages are permitted on the property.      

Pets: We love animals, but unfortunately, we are a pet-free property.  The only exception is for those requiring the use of a service animal.  We will be happy to refer you to a local kennel.

Dining:  The restaurant at This Historic Hill House and Farm is open to inn guests only for breakfast (except Sunday Brunch).  Breakfast is served in the dining room from 8:30 am through 10 am.  A picnic lunch and snacks are available for pickup in the Main House at noon.  Dinner seating runs from 6 pm through 8 pm.  Reservations are required for dinner and Sunday brunch service.

Gratuities:  The Historic Hill House and Farm is a gratuity-free property.  Tips are neither recommended nor accepted.  Our staff is compensated competitively through our stated rates and service charge.  We are thrilled to provide each of our guests with the ultimate service experience.  If you believe we achieved this, you can further recognize our performance by visiting our property again in the future, telling your friends and family, and/or submitting an online review.

Dress Code:  The Historic Hill House and Farm is a casual facility, but we request guests adhere to a business casual standard for the dining room.  Also, shoes and shirts are required in the Main House at all times.   

Property Risks:  Please remember that you are in the country and will be exposed to nature.  As such, be aware that risks abound, including, but not limited to the following:  snakes and other wild and potentially dangerous animals, poisonous plants, and dangerous terrain.  If you are injured or feel at risk, please call 911 and/or let the staff know.
