What it's like

Nestled in the North Texas Hill Country, The Lancaster Manor is an awe-inspiring 1886 Spanish Victorian Mansion. Every brick, chandelier, and door in this bed and breakfast tells a story of elegance, simplicity, and a bygone era of romanticism. Its foundations bear witness to countless memories, from grand ballroom dances to intimate candlelit dinners. Its original oak hardwood floors and pocket doors stand testimony to a time when craftsmanship was an art, cherished and refined.

Independent spirit

Elegant. Historic. Romantic.

Small touches

With only four guest rooms, each individually themed, The Lancaster Manor offers an intimate escape where attention to detail is paramount. Envision sleeping under luxurious COMPHY® sheets, wrapped in the soft embrace of plush European bathrobes, and waking up to a room bathed in natural light. Whether it's the romance-infused Rose Room with its authentic 1886 fireplace or the rustic allure of the Cowboy Room, every space has been curated to provide an unforgettable experience. Outside, the grounds invite you to wander among wisteria and roses, nap under a Texas Pecan tree, or lose yourself in the melodies of countless birds that frequent the estate.

Eat and drink

Start your stay with a complimentary welcome drink and snack. Mornings at The Lancaster Manor are a gourmet's delight. You can savor a made-to-order breakfast featuring farm-fresh organic eggs and freshly ground coffee, all while basking in the sunlit glow of the sun porch. And that's just the beginning. The estate offers an unparalleled private dining experience in its old Butler's Pantry, where guests can dine under an 1890 chandelier adorned with Swarovski crystals. With gourmet dishes accompanied by carefully selected wines or champagne, every meal here becomes a cherished moment.
