... Aunt Katherine are so dear to me and I'm so happy to have been able to spend some time with them. We"ll meet them for breakfast in the morning before we head across the great state of Texas! Louisiana was interesting to drive through but DANG do they have lousy ...
... rice fields to raise crayfish in. The interstates in Louisiana have lots of billboards advertising casino after casino. There are even casinos at the truck stops!! From I-10, we drove north on I-49. Again, getting my trusty IPad out, I found out that we were only about 1 1/2 hours from the home of Phil Robertson, of Duck Dynasty fame. Nick had a hard time not heading right over to his ...
Today our annual preventative maintenance is scheduled so off we go at o'dark thirty to Hall truck center. And if you know Pam you know that o'dark thirty is not a reasonable time of the day. So we are still a little sluggish after the minimum dose of three large cups of coffee. But, our baby needs a lube job, oil, filters and just general loving care ...
Today I tackle the step problem and figure out it's the computer control module for the steps. A new one is ordered and the old one removed. The steps are now up until the new board is attached. My constant companion for the last week, Rascal, and I head for the Shreveport airport to pickup Pam. She's been visiting ...
We scheduled a tire rotation and front end alignment and even though I planned ahead and had everything prepared to move early Murphy's Law kicked in. As I'm ready to move the coach the steps refuse to retract. After some electrical trouble shooting they are still a no go. I gave up and drove off and they went up? A couple hours later again not retracting. But now we have completed our tire and alignment ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Woldert-Spence Manor Tyler
It's hard to believe that a place as fabulous as 1859 Woldert-Spence B&B exists, but if you've ever had the fortune of staying there you know it's all because of the Innkeepers, Patricia and Richard. These folks are quite simply the best Innkeepers we've ever met and it is their incredible hospitality that make a stay in their home into an experiance we will treasure for a long time to come. ...and we've seen many over the last 30+ years!
Charm and decor
My wife and I just booked our 2nd stay at WS for June 1 - 4, and wouldn't consider staying anywhere else. Quiet and relaxing are the key words that come to mind, but the "charm and decor" are
a postive treat. Only a few blocks away from Antique Stores, if your into that sort of thing.
The privacy of the Rockway Cottage with every detail not over looked. The Heaton's staff does an outstanding job...
Just returned from Tyler and couldn't wait to send a note about the Heatons place! People, take it from a local, if you're going to visit the "Tyler," YOU NEED TO STAY AT THIS PLACE! First, it's beautiful! Second, it's located right Downtown. (in the middle of the Brick St. District) and don't forget the Zoo! Third, it's surrounded trees, near local pubs and restaurants (an excellent one right downtown - Rick's) all within walking distance! Fourth, the beds are very comfortable and the atmosphere is charming and elegant! Fifth, the staff is very helpful and courteous! Six, and most importantly, Richard & Patricia KNOW THE MEANING OF HOSPITALITY! Clearly, make staying at the Woldert-Spence Inn a memorable experience! I highly recommend that, if you are planning on going to visit Texas anytime soon, you stay at the Wodlert-Spence Inn. Oh, one final note, the breakfast was more than plentiful and it had a nice variety! Richard and Patricia, keep up the great work!
Lone Star State
Our new home away from home. We could not have felt more welcomed and comfortable anywhere else in Texas! You'll definitely want to stay here. One of the other guests had been to NO eight times and said her stay at the Woldert-Spence was the most comfortable she has ever been.
The owners Richard & Patricia have the greatest advice and stories to share. If you follow it you will surely be pleased.
It was our first time in Texas and we'll stay at the Woldert-Spence for all of our future visits. When you've already had perfection, why stay anwhere else.
The beds are like clouds and the hot tub a plus after all the walking you'll surely do. Happy travels!
Owners are very helpful & friendly
We stayed here in April for family visit, and made a romantic get-a-way out of it. (with kids locked up)
I would definitely stay here again. The rooms were very large & clean.
The housekeeping was excellent. The concierge service was very helpful for booking other excursions in the Tyler area & in general the Innkeepers were very helpful & friendly. The Spa was a plus, so was the all you could eat breakfast. The Gym across the street,
was a big bonus for my husband and older son. I LOVED this Inn... it exceeded all my expectations.
We will probably be back in late December 2004.
Kids have fun too
Loved the Woldert-Spence Manor! We went with our four kids and met my brother-in-law & his wife & two teenage kids had a ball.
Everyone went swimming across the street
at the Y. Hot, yet lots of fun in the sun.
Received a live voice
After doing a great deal of research on Tyler Texas, I decided on the Woldert-Spence Manor due to the exceptional value & locale. Parking is a real issue with me, and thewy have ample off the street parking.
My next trip is to Dallas, and hope it is as pleasant this city, & friendly accommodations.
Thank you tripadvisor for making this trip possible!!
We were treated like royalty the entire during
the entire stay. Famous people have
stayed at the Historic Manor. The
history of the manor was a real treat.
The property was completly restored in 1991-92.
...and the did it right. However, they almost put
too much detail in the courtyard. But, the
fish garden was fun, we were even able to feed
Beautiful rooms, historic brick streets
Very inexpensive for everything they provide.
Helpful with tyler attractions, & more.
Breakfast was just outstanding!
Historic 1859 Woldert-Spence Manor
I've stayed at Inn all over the world. This one is one of my top 5 ever.
The food was exceptional, host/owners were marvelous, and the Manor was VERY SPARKLING CLEAN.
Every possible detail was made. I told Richard (the owner), he needs
to look at a rate increase, his prices are very economical!
