We made a stop in Mineola, Texas . . . in what appeared to be a bit of a worn out town. I snapped a picture . . . with three stores on a main street . . . "Vintage Charm," "Taste of Italy," and an old hotel "Beckham Hotel Coffee Shoppe!" They have a certain 'charm,' but I doubt it is everyone's cup of tea (or coffee!).
... on the first day of the tour, October 1, 2011. Ironically, Andy also passed away on on October 1, but it was in 2002.
Josh was born with a heart defect. He had a heart transplant when he was 17 and was in need of a second heart transplant that he did not receive it in time.
We had a great event with the main focus being on Josh. Joe and Becky sang a song together - One Beautiful Day, I think was the ...

After I methodically locked up, taped around the doors to keep out dust and east Texas insects, and set the thermostats, I found Nancy waiting in the RV saying, "Time's awastin', Puggy! Let's get on the road again." I think there might be a song in there some place. Check out ...
I went out to walk around the barn for a while and seek some clarity for my mind. I have been so clouded lately. As usual as soon as the dogs hear me head that way, they come running. Tippie is the pup, nervous, playful, and rambunctious. Daisy is the elder pit bull and the boss of the ranch. Charlie is the barn cat even though he is a little bit of a diva who thinks he is a dog. I love these creations of God and their uniqueness, but ...

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!
