Heritage House of Henderson
Imagine 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.
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.
