Found in the heart of Houston, Texas, La Maison is the perfect getaway in the city. The gorgeous European features of this bed and breakfast were perfected by founders, Genora K. Boykins and Sharon M. Owens. Everyone who stays at La Maison adores all that it has to offer such as location, amenities, and the welcoming feeling you get once you arrive.
How did you get your start working in the travel industry?
- This was our first entry into the travel industry. We did not have any previous experience in this industry.
How did this experience inspire you to own your own hotel?
- We were really more interested in being entrepreneurs and preparing for life after corporate America more so than owning a bed and breakfast. We just decided that a newly constructed B&B could best use our natural gifts and talents.

must visit locations in houston (for food, for inspiration, for fun):
FOOD: Houston is a Foodie town so picking one place for food near us is tough and nearly impossible! It really depends on what type of food people are interested in for us to make a recommendation.
INSPIRATION: For inspiration, we recommend catching a play at The Ensemble Theatre, which is located in Midtown.
FUN: For fun, we always suggest the Museum District, which has a variety of museums for guests to explore.
