Barb and Mike are the friendliest owners. Breakfast is amazing and plentiful. House is well taken care of. We enjoyed soaking in the Jacuzzi which is hot! Beautiful place to relax close to DFW. We will be back!

We had such a wonderful Valentine’s weekend get-away at this charming B&B located blocks from everything. We arrived around 7 pm after innkeepers left and everything was arranged for us to let ourselves in and make ourselves at home. Easy parking and access, beautiful natural gardens, sitting areas, koi pond, and gorgeous fountains. There was a couple in the hot tub that told us it was amazing! Our suite, William Woldert, was on the main floor and ohhh so comfy! It was chilly so we lit the gas fireplace which was one of our favorite features. Our queen size bed had freshly ironed cotton sheets (WOW!). The bathroom was roomy with plenty of storage. Standing shower and pedestal sink. Plenty of hot water, shampoo and soap. I appreciated the facial wipes as I’d forgotten mine. Closet space and hangers were plentiful as were dresser drawer space. Very small and awkwardly mounted TV near the bathroom door, but it works just fine and we were grateful for a B&B with a TV!! We felt so “at home” here! The innkeepers, Barb and Mike, knock themselves out making sure you have all you need. Sharing the refrigerator in the hall works perfectly, water cooler had hot water and plenty of various tea bags, coffee, Keurig maker, treats. No ice, but innkeepers are happy to fill an ice bucket upon request. Let’s talk about BREAKFAST!!! Presentation was beautiful in the formal dining room. Started with a delightful cup of fruit with a dollop of yogurt. Main course the first morning was a large flakey pastry filled with deliciousness! Almost like an omelet inside?? There were homemade muffins and biscuits and a green salad as well. Coffee, orange juice, water. You will skip lunch! The next morning was the same lovely fruit, AMAZING bacon and ham quiche with homemade muffins and a side green salad topped with fresh fruit. We left the Manor today with two new friends we felt we’d known all our lives, our innkeepers Barb and Mike!! There was much more we wanted to do and see in Tyler and cannot wait to go back.

Awwww...Kathy, You fill our hearts with the joy of knowing you enjoyed your stay! Side note: we are also not satisfied with that awkward TV installation and will be perfecting that this week. We very much appreciate our return guests and look forward to any future visits that you and Randy bless us with.

My wife and I spent our wedding night here. Absolutely wonderful B&B. The home is historic in appearance and decorated with beautiful furnishings but has all the modern conveniences (wifi, etc). We asked for a bottle of champagne for our room and also dropped off a "go bag" as we went straight from our wedding. Wonderful breakfast the next morning!! This is THE place to stay in Tyler!!

We stayed in the William Woldert room. The room was a nice size and very comfortable. Adjoining bath with shower was spacious. The whole house is beautiful with antique furnishings and stained glass. Our breakfast both days was hot and delicious. Barbara was accommodating and a delight to visit with. Our only regret was that we were not able to enjoy the outside areas as the weather was cold and rainy. I highly recommend Woldert-Spence Manor to anyone and would gladly visit again should the opportunity arise.

We are glad you enjoyed your stay while touring Tyler and the surrounding areas. There is always more to do; and we certainly look forward to any opportunity that brings you back for a visit. The weather is usually lovely (we control it as much as possible!); however, during those times of much-needed rainfall or unseasonable chills, we love to warm guest's souls with a visit and hot drink before you embark on inside activities. Thanks so much for staying with us; and remember - returning guests enjoy our loyalty discount forever!
