The Texas White House

1417 Eighth Avenue , Fort Worth, TX 76104 USA (Show map)


This historically designated, award winning home has been restored to its original 1910 grandeur, filled with an eclectic mix of boutique hotel amenities, antiques, modern touches, folk art collections and an art gallery in the downstairs area. It is centrally located, within five minutes of downtown, the medical center, the Fort Worth Zoo, the Cultural District, Botanic Gardens, Water Gardens, and TCU. We are also one block from Magnolia Ave- Fort Worth's exciting dining wonderland. The three guest rooms in the main house are all furnished with luxurious king or queen sized beds, relaxing sitting areas and private baths with claw footed tubs for showers or soaking baths. Guests are afforded complete privacy; however, if desired, they may enjoy the parlor, living room with fireplace, dining room, and large wrap around porch. Two suites in our carriage house have queen beds, TV, VCR, refrigerator, two-person jacuzzi tubs and a two-person in-room sauna. Chef prepared breakfast, described by one of the guests as, "fit for visiting royalty," may be served in either the dining room or to your room and will be a gourmet treat with local, organic, seasonal fruit and yogurt, as well as a variety of egg dishes and homemade breads, scones and muffins, juice, coffee and tea. Other amenities include HD television, individual coffee makers, afternoon snacks and beverages, laundry service for extended stays and off-street parking.

A Wonderful B&B

5 on September 30, 2015

My fiancé and I were long term guests at The Texas White House so I feel we have a pretty good knowledge of this B&B. For starters, the location couldn’t be more perfect. The B&B is walking distance to some great local restaurants. The neighborhood is safe and we frequently walked around early in the mornings and later in the evenings and never felt uncomfortable. If you aren’t sure of where to have dinner the inn keeper, Cindy, is more than willing to make some great suggestions. Speaking of Cindy, she is wonderful! She treated us like family and was so welcoming. Her breakfasts are delicious and she always has tasty treats out in the common areas for a quick snack. We stayed in the carriage house (a small house in the back of the property), which is perfect for a quiet, cozy getaway. The bed linens are AWESOME…I seriously need to purchase a set because they put my $300 Ralph Lauren sheets to shame. I truly can’t think of anything negative to say. It was the perfect extended stay and anytime we are back in the DFW area, this will be our B&B of choice.

A Perfect Getaway

A perfect quick getaway! Very quiet, comfortable, and cozy! I highly recommend the Tejas Room!

Innkeeper Response
I am so glad to know that other people like the Tejas room, it is decorated with folk art and ceramics from our many trips to Mexico, and a beautiful quilt from Santa Fe. Hope to see you for a longer stay, next time- and see all the fun things in town!

wonderful B &B experience!

We were overwhelmed with the warm hospitality of our host. This was our first time visiting Fort Worth & she couldn't have been more helpful with suggestions & directions to make our stay enjoyable. Our room, the Land of Contrast suite, was very comfortable, clean & beautifully decorated. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious & we were offered several menu choices. We highly recommend this B & B to everyone! Canadian travelers.m

Signature Dish

Breakfast nachos
As a chef, born in Dallas, Texas, I have an affinity for Mexican food and Southwestern cuisine. I developed a breakfast that includes a chorizo hash and a fried egg served over baked corn tortillas and melted cheese. We serve locally grown produce and the eggs are from our neighbor's hens! Fresh ingredients and cooking with a passion are my signature!
