Kirby-Hill House

The Kirby-Hill House Educational Foundation provides a neat, clean environment with comfortable temperature ranges in this 110 year old home, but guests should keep in mind that the house was built, after all, before the amenities we are accustomed to today; like central air and heat, and renovations have not been totally completed.  Guests will stay in Lucy's upstairs bedroom suite (1940)with standard double bed, a sitting room, bathroom, and (fully functional) kitchen privileges for one or two people.  The bathroom has an original claw-foot tub with no shower.  This house had hot and cold running water when it was built in 1902.  A great deal of the furniture and some decorations are original to the house.  We also have two other bedrooms available to rent.  Stone's room (1800's) and Autie's big room (1962). The house is located in Kountze, Texas, twenty miles north of Beaumont in the southeast part of the state.  Beaumont is known as the museum capital of Texas and Kountze is home to the Big Thicket National Preserve Center.  Nearby is Village Creek State Park and R.E. Larsen Sandyland Sanctuary.


The rooms rent at a rate of $99.00 per night, per room (that includes tax).  This rate includes a breakfast voucher at MaMa Jack's. The voucher includes two breakfast buffets and coffee.  A $30.00 deposit will hold the reservation. Balance in credit card, cash or check is due before or upon check-in.  Cancellation for refund must be made at least four days prior.  We accept Visa or MasterCard.  We also have another option for your consideration that includes a Formal Breakfast served by staff members for a rate of $140 (includes tax) per room, per night. Please specify which experience would bring you the most enjoyment.
