Woldert-Spence Manor
Ranked #3 of 6 Tyler B&B and Inns
Reviewed May 20, 2012

A quick surprise B-Day weekend for my hubby was our first B&B experience and it WAS WONDERFUL!!! Stayed in Cottage, it had absolutely everything you could think of even some very good homemade cookies provided!!! The decor was beautiful and the bed was the softest I've ever slept in. The homemade Breakfast was just the icing on the cake. The Innkeeper Shonda did an excellent job taking care of us and the other guest. She attended to every detail and was so very knowledgeable about Tyler!!!! An excellent experience and WE WILL be coming back and telling others too!!! Thanks for such a wonderful weekend!! C & S Taliaferro

Room Tip: Cottage is great if wanting some privacy!!

We visited Woldert-Spence Manor during December 2011. We booked the entire house for our family of 13. Had a great time! Shonda went out of her way to make sure we were accommodated. My husband and I stayed Friday night and Saturday and our children joined us on Saturday. The house was awesome and we felt right at home. Breakfast both mornings was wonderful. We had vegetarians and those with allergies and Shonda took extra care with those special food requests. It was GREAT!

Having stayed at many bed & breakfast across the country, we enjoyed our stay at Woldert-Spence. The hosts are fabulous and the home was quaint and comfortable (well appointed). Unfortunately, we felt the scramble eggs were over cooked and biscuits were too huge. Lisa's cinnamon honey butter was so yummy. The service and the hospitality, though was top notch!

My husband and I stayed in the Spence room on the first floor. It is a beautiful room with a private screened porch. Chris and Lisa were wonderful hosts. We loved waking to the smell of bacon and fresh scones each morning and coming "home" to fresh-baked cookies every evening. We have stayed at other Texas B&Bs and have found that we are judging their services by the standards set by Chris and Lisa. It is obvious that they love the place and being great hosts. We have no real reason to visit Tyler again, but are planning a return visit to this B&B for rest and relaxation as soon as possible.

Although I had lived in Tyler before, I did not know about the history of the Woldert family or the Manor. Thoroughly enjoyed visiting with Lisa and Chris about the house, the history and getting to know them. The location is central, quiet and comfortable. You have the charm of an old fashioned B&B with all the modern conveniences; blow driers, tvs, wifi. Privacy is ensured since each room has it's own bath. I am already looking for things to do in the area just so I can stay at the Manor! Hope to see ya'll soon!

Chris and Lisa were such wonderful hosts. They make you feel so at home and the place is just gorgeous. We especially liked the sound machine in the room and the homemade breakfast was wonderful, especially the cinnamon honey butter which just melted in your mouth. HIghly recommend if you want a quiet romantic getaway.

My sister and I rented two rooms in May while we were on a house hunting trip. The rooms were outstanding, the breakfast was wonderful, and the inn keepers are a joy. We loved the place so much, we have booked two roooms for two more nights in July.

If you want a pleasant, restful stay and a wonderful old home, this is your place.
