A few months ago I informed everyone that The Texas White House was in a new ghost book by Brian Righi called “Supernatural Texas.” Brian saw the post and wrote me back that our bed and breakfast received an entire chapter in another of his books, “The Ghosts of Fort Worth.” There are plenty of places in Fort Worth to find stories of ghosts and plenty of people interested in learning about them; so, I hope those of you who are interested will pick up this new book and also check out Brian Righi’s web site. Since we don’t have a copy of this book, the first couple who makes a reservation to stay with us and brings us a hardback, fairly new copy of “The Ghosts of Fort Worth” will receive a discount off your room rate or a gift from us in return for the book. However, you must let us know in advance of your stay so we can have your gift ready. Just call The Texas White House (817-923-3597) to reserve your stay in our Lone Star room. After all, wouldn’t a ghost lover want to stay with the ghost?!!

Springtime has started in earnest at the Texas Star Gardens of The Texas White House. Each day, more and more Native Texas plants are budding out and blooming, and many of these spring flowers are producing seedlings. So, it’s time for our special discount offer. Actually, this is more “free” than “discount.” For each guest who stays at our Fort Worth bed and breakfast this spring and summer, you may dig up and take two seedling plants (supervised, of course!!) for each night you stay with us - absolutely free. For those of you reading this on Facebook, you are entitled to receive an even more special offer; so, please call us for the details. These seedlings can’t last forever – not because they won’t grow but because we will be forced to dig them up to keep the garden in shape. So, if you are interested, please plan to stay with us soon. You may want to time your stay to the type of plant you want, and we’ll certainly help you with that.

This time of year in Fort Worth, we’re all bundling up to stay warm and probably just wishing for spring flowers or not even thinking about it yet. However, the Winter Honeysuckle has started blooming in the Texas Star Gardens at our bed and breakfast. Imagine yourself, still bundled up on a cool day, sitting in the sunshine on the bench almost surrounded on three sides by the fragrance of honeysuckle. Close your eyes and smell. Suddenly, it’s Spring! Well, you don’t have to just imagine. Come see us at The Texas White House and let your imagination come alive! Mention this post, and you’ll receive our early spring discount.

Speaking of cattle (see our posting under Fort Worth museums) it’s time for the 114th Fort Worth Livestock Show & Rodeo, the longest, continuously running livestock show in the United States. Beginning Friday, January 15 and running until February 7, the show involves food, western vendors, livestock judging and, of course, one of the major rodeos of the year. There are even special rodeo events separate from the rodeo itself. Except for the finals rodeo, there are plenty of tickets and plenty of parking. It’s great fun for a couple or the family; so, check the Stock Show site for a daily schedule, then call The Texas White House for your reservation. We are only 5-6 minutes from all the action. A lot of people think that the show is in the Fort Worth Stockyards, but it’s not. Except for the downtown parade on Saturday, January 16, all events are held at the Will Rogers Coliseum and Complex just northwest of our bed and breakfast. If you have time, plan to come during the week; mention this post, and we’ll give you a discount on your room. And definitely plan to spend two nights. There’s just too much to see for only one day!

Cattle were the first major industry in Fort Worth when cattle drives stopped here to re-supply and rest. The history and spirit of those days has been captured in the Cattle Raisers Museum which is now opening their new museum as an attraction in the new Fort Worth Museum of Science and History. Either as a couple or with the family, you can spend an entire day seeing the history of the cattle industry in Texas, intriguing scientific exhibits and experiments and one of the features at the Omni Theater, all under one roof! If this sounds like fun to you, mention this posting when you make a reservation to stay at The Texas White House, and we’ll discount your stay by giving you a complimentary lunch to enjoy while you’re at the museum.

The holidays are over! That’s a “good news/bad news” type of thing for most of us. Regardless of how the holidays affected you, January is a good month to unwind from holiday shopping and rushing around in all the traffic. And, of course, with holiday bills, you don’t want to spend a lot of money. So, The Texas White House has just the answer! My favorite solution is our Privacy Package: Picture the two of you relaxing in a two-person, whirlpool bubble bath, sipping wine and munching snacks with only a candle light glow; a private dinner for two, sitting on plush cushions in front of your own fireplace; and do you think you could continue relaxing and have breakfast in bed? This package includes all of this: one night in either of our Longhorn Suite; snacks and wine, the delivery fee on dinner from any of several, local restaurants, and breakfast brought to your room; all for a total price of $299.00, plus tax. Mention this post, and you’ll receive an additional discount of $10.00. And if you want to book this special during the week, we will reduce the price another $10.00! It’s all available to you right now at our Fort Worth bed and breakfast.

In another of our posts I mentioned the idea of getting away from Christmas stresses by staying overnight at The Texas White House and doing your shopping from here. Here’s another idea on how to slow down this Christmas season and maybe, just maybe, enjoy the holiday more! Visit the Fort Worth Zoo! Before school lets out, the zoo can be a peaceful, romantic place to just stroll. You can even joke with your spouse about how one of the animals reminds you of one of your in-laws! Well, OK; maybe not. But I’ll bet you can find that peace and quiet that will remind you of a simpler Christmas time. Now, some better news! Stay one week night at our bed and breakfast, and we’ll buy you a ticket to the zoo; stay two nights, and we’ll buy you two tickets; so, you even get a discount on getting some peace and quiet!

For most of us the Christmas holiday period is a stressful as well as enjoyable time. The crowds, the hectic shopping, even the parties can leave us wishing for a simpler, more relaxing Christmas. The Texas White House has a suggestion: take a day off from work, do some Christmas shopping and spend the night at our bed and breakfast. And we have a gift for you: mention this post, and we’ll give you a discount on your room if you stay Sunday – Thursday. We’ll include a bottle of wine or champagne, or we’ll pay to have dinner delivered to your room so you can just relax and refresh. It may make this the best Christmas ever! We hope so.
