We are Tyler's oldest B&B, and the closest lodging facility to historic downtown Tyler. An 1859 Tyler Historic Landmark, the Manor is a restored Queen Anne Victorian home. The house is set back on a large corner lot surrounded by brick streets and many mature shade trees. There is a Koi pond in the relaxing Rear Garden along with a gazebo, wishing well, and large back deck. The main house has original oak and heart-of-pine wood floors, wood moulding, and gorgeous stained-glass windows. All 7 rooms have private baths, some featuring claw-foot tubs. Additional features in some rooms include king or queen-size beds, fireplaces, private balconies or porches. Two of the rooms are private carriage houses for that home-away-from-home feeling. A delicious full country breakfast is served daily on china, crystal and silver in the formal dining room. The Woldert-Spence Manor is perfect for honeymoons, anniversaries, birthdays, or any special occasion! Also ask about our whole house rate for family reunions, retreats or group getaways. We are just minutes from many attractions including Tyler's Rose Garden, fine dining, antique stores, Tyler State Park, and more. There is something for everyone to enjoy while in Tyler! Visit our web site for a sampling of current area events to enjoy during your stay.

This is a beautiful 1859 B and B. We especially loved the stained glass around the doors and windows.Our bedroom had a fireplace which was quite romantic.The location was quiet and we were able to walk around the neighborhood without problems. Several good restaurants are close by.

We just wanted to get away for the weekend and relax. This was the perfect weekend. Our innkeeper gave us such good recommendations for things to do and places to eat. She was also very personable.

We only stayed one night in the William Woldert room which was very cozy and comfortable. We were served an excellent gourmet breakfast. The innkeeper was very friendly and helpful. We will return and spend more time exploring Tyler.

Wonderful place to stay. For two or three people, the Rockway Cottage is the one to reserve. It has a small kitchen and sitting area, so family members of mine who stayed in the main house walked over to the cottage to drink coffee and visit. Delightful breakfast the next morning all together in the main house. Highly recommend!!

Everything about our stay at the Woldert-Spence Manor was fantastic. The Inn Keeper Shonda, was wonderful. She was very knowledgeable, hospitable and an incredible cook. The room was spacious, comfortable and cozy, the pictures on the website do not come close to doing it justice. I can't wait for our next weekend getaway!
