The Smith House Bed & Breakfast

From Australia to Texas, they were looking to start a business. They found it right in the heart of Crosbyton as the new owners of the historic Smith House Bed and Breakfast.

Cozily nestled on Crosbyton's main street, the Smith House Bed and Breakfast boasts a wealth of history with a flare of antique and western flavor.

The house dates back to 1921, when it was first opened as a boarding house. But don't expect to find a Texas accent welcoming you.

"G'day welcome to Smith House. Come on in," Sande Two Eagles said.

That's right, owners Sande Two Eagles and Sue Windsong are from Australia. 

"We wanted a new challenge. We're pretty adventurous females," Sande said.

And what they found was located on a suburban street in the middle of Crosbyton, Texas. 

"Once we saw Smith House on the net, that was it. Nothing else would do," Sande said.

"Because the Smith House was in a country area, which we liked and not very far from a major center, and because it's beautiful. We like it," Sue said. 

"I like the old worldliness of it; that's what really got me in," Sande said.

When staying at the Smith House you get your choice of one of the 11 guest bedrooms, each decorated with its own theme. 

"It's a gorgeous old place," Sue said.

"I still get a kick out of it when I go make up the beds and the guests have left,"

And you're sure to leave with a full belly. 

"The restaurant was actually a secondary thing. Someone came up to us and said, 'The Smith House use to be a huge restaurant type of thing, why don't you open up?' So I looked at Sue and said get your apron on, you're going back in the kitchen," Sande said.

Whether you stay overnight or just for lunch, you're sure to find a bit of Texas history and Australian hospitality.

"It's lovely!" Sande said. "It's very homey, and I just hope that when people come to stay they feel at home," Sue said.

The Smith House is open daily for guests and serves lunch every Wednesday, Thursday, Friday with a hot lunch on Sunday.
