My wife and I desperately needed a night together away from Dallas, we came across Sulphur Springs Inn, and decided to give it a chance. The price was right and it was just outside the National Recreation Area in Sulphur.
There are 2 options when you stay at Sulphur Springs Inn, you can stay in the main house (an old bathhouse) or there are cottages just outside the main building. We decided to stay in the main house because we liked the history. There are musical instruments to play and all kinds of neat antiques (an old record player, an old radio, etc).
Charlie, the Inn Keeper was awesome, he gave us a very good introduction to the area when we arrived and gave us plenty of ideas for activities. As mentioned, we were really excited to just relax, so after a short bike ride through the park (they let you use the bikes complementary), we just chilled out next to the fire pit with our books.
There isn't a whole lot of dining options in Sulphur, we did find an Italian Restaurant that was good and very well priced, can't remember the name of though, ask Charlie.
The rooms in the main house are very interesting, they have a sink and toilet in each room, the showers however are shared. This really wasn't so bad and I would not discourage anyone to stay here just because the showers are shared. They were very clean and it was a slow weekend, so we had no issues.
Breakfast was wonderful. Charlie made us scrambled eggs and potatoes, pancakes and sausage. Great coffee and OJ too.
Our stay was short, only one night, but we had a blast and it was just what we needed.
Thanks a lot Sulphur Springs Inn, we will be back!
