magine yourself relaxing in this historic landmark home in the beautiful piney woods of East Texas, located in Henderson, just minutes south of I-20 and convenient to Dallas, Houston and Shreveport, Louisiana. In this unique Bed & Breakfast, you and your guests can get away from city congestion, visit the historic areas and antique shops of East Texas, go gaming in fun-filled Bossier City, or just enjoy the wildlife habitat and the quiet. Yet for all its luxury, the ambiance radiates warmth and hominess.
Built in 1913 and lavishly restored and decorated, this 5,000 square-foot showplace on two floors features 5 palatial-size bedrooms, two with large private sitting rooms, 3 baths, 3 wood-burning fireplaces, 10-foot ceilings and gleaming original oak floors throughout. Upstairs there is also a cozy, old-fashioned "sleeping porch" for those balmy evenings.
The large formal dining room will seat you and your guests in elegant dining comfort. A very large den, located next to the efficient kitchen and done in authentic southwestern motif, encourages you to relax and take your shoes off. The palace-size living area features a formal fireplace and multiple conversation areas.
A large, terrazzo-floored foyer and sitting room with French doors open onto the expansive main patio. Adjacent to the patio is a secluded hot-tub, with Jacuzzi, on a raised, new planked deck. You can soak and relax as you gaze at the stars through the trees while you enjoy soft classical music in the background. Further back is a beautiful adult swimming pool surrounded by a landscaped garden with fountain and gold fish pond. All are enclosed by greenery and an antique wrought-iron fence for your back yard privacy. If you desire a secluded sanctuary from the fast paced, busy world you live in, this is a dream come true. The property is set on one acre of land surrounded by towering pine and pecan trees, and is landscaped with azaleas that stop traffic each spring.
As a special opportunity, the owner offers you an opportunity to purchase some of her many unique Objets d'Art, rare china pieces, teapots and porcelain, paintings and the like. These have been collected over many years of worldwide travel. Many are one-of-a-kind and are impossible to duplicate. All are of the finest quality and taste.
At the Heritage House of Henderson, a Texas Main Street City, you will be warmly greeted with refreshments on your arrival, and can relax to lovely classical music in the Tea Room while you enjoy your favorite pot of tea or cold glass of lemonade. A soak in the hot tub, or late night dip in the refreshing pool, will relax you and put you in the mood for a peaceful night's sleep in this elegant "Gone With the Wind" estate.
A delicious full Southern breakfast or a heart-healthy choice is available from 7:30am to 10:00am. Because your enjoyment and comfort is our top priority, you can even order a "to go" picnic lunch for the next day. If you are lucky enough to be in residence for Saturday High Tea from 3 to 5pm, complete with English Scones with cream and jam, you will leave with beautiful memories and plans for many happy returns.
Hardwood floors throughout the estate, air conditioning, turn down service if desired, art collections, silver, crystal and candles, and more...you will be treated elegantly and with respect for your privacy.
