House of the Seasons
Built by Colonel Benjamin Epperson, prominent business man and confidante to Sam Houston, this home has characteristics from Greek Revival, Victorian, and Italianate designs. Many of the furnishings and works of art are original to the house. During warm months, tea is served in the garden following group tours.
My Wife and I were enjoying a 10th anniv. trip and returning from Tenn. We called Shirley at the last minute and she settled us right in. The house is wonderful and restoration is impecible. We couldnt have asked for a better place to visit. We stayed in the Carriage house and wished we could take the bed home with us. It is a warm and inviting place to visit, and the town is quaint. The Carriage house has 4 rooms and one seemed better than the other. We stayed in the Lady Bird Suite and were more that satisfied. We had a delicious breakfast served in the house, you might want to make sure Shirley is fixing French Toast for breakfast. We couldnt have asked for a better last minute stop
My wife and I were married in Aug. 2001. My sister Stacey Baker of Marshall booked the Epperson suite,for our consummation. The House of the seasons staff awoke us to a wonderful Austrian breakfast that we look forward to having again. The suite was perfect and the surrounding grounds were beautifully manicured. When I return from Iraq we plan on revisiting this Texas jewel.
Five stars doesn't begin to give justice to the property.
We stayed three nights in the Sam Houston Suite at House of the Seasons and had an exceptional time. The room is furnished with antiques and items of historical interest but also has all the modern amenities including a refrigerator, coffee maker, cable television, premium linens, robes, Jacuzzi tub for two and a stand up shower. The rooms are spacious and even though the bathroom is small, it is very efficient and doesn't feel cramped.
The suites are in the carriage house so that they can be modern and not effect the historical integrity of the main house which is impeccably kept. A multi-course gourmet breakfast is served each morning in the historic dining room on linen and fine china and is a true delight. Overnight guests are treated to a tour of House of the Seasons, including a trip to the cupola from which it gets it's name.
The staff at House of the Seasons are incredible. Shirley, the General Manager, is personable, informative and truly strives to make your stay the very best it can be. She can offer ideas on things to do or make reservations. She also appreciates a good story!
