Granbury is located 45 miles southwest of Fort Worth, and only 1 1/2 hours southwest of Dallas, and The Captain's House is located on Lake Granbury, just a short stroll from the Historic Square. The property was purchased in 1876 by James Hogan Doyle, a founding father of Granbury, who was also a decorated Civil War Hero. The early settlers affectionately nicknamed him "Captain". The original lower floor was built in the early 1880's, and the upper additions were completed by 1900.

Our elegant and warm atmosphere will create a place for you to make memories.

Enjoy breakfast on the balcony or in your suite.

Romance or step away from daily stresses as you relax in one of our uniquely-appointed guest rooms...each with private baths.

Breakfast in Bed - No Problem.

Your scrumptious tray is served to your room where you can enjoy a private, quiet morning. Or, if you prefer, step outside and take in the sounds of the morning and a beautiful lake view while you enjoy your breakfast on the balcony or patio.

Flavor those daily homemade desserts and enjoy a complimentary lunch at the Historic Bakery on the Square when staying two days or more.

We're Open All Year

From the moment you arrive until the time you leave, Bob makes your stay with him an experience you'll remember for a lifetime. Whether quietly reading or breakfast dining on the large balcony, each guest will enjoy the lake views and the ambiance of this special place.

All guests are invited to enjoy both the upstairs and downstairs "Common Areas". In the upstairs "Common Room", guests may read from a selection of old books and magazines, enjoy their desserts, watch cable TV, or just visit.

Everyone certainly looks forward to relaxing on the upstairs balcony, and some even enjoy their morning trays there. Guests may reserve a TV/VCR and old movies to watch in the privacy of their own room.
