Woodbine Hotel and Restaurant Information

Description

This 1904 Historic State and National Landmark is a charming Victorian and Eastlake style hotel with wrap-around porches & gorgeous gardens. World-class restaurant & bar serves lunch, dinner & Sunday brunch. Eight romantic rooms include king or queen beds, private baths with whirlpool tubs, 32" flat screen tv's, free wi-fi and fully cooked breakfast to order in the morning. The perfect getaway between Dallas, Houston & Austin is an easy two hour drive, located two miles west of I-45 in Madisonville. Originally named the Shapira Hotel, the hotel was built in 1904 and consists of two Sears & Roebuck “kit houses” purchased at the 1903 World’s Fair. The Eastlake and Queen Ann houses face each other, joined by upper and lower parlors. During construction of the hotel, Jake Shapira stepped on a nail and died of tetanus. His wife Sarah operated the hotel until 1922. Clara Wills purchased and renamed it the Wills Hotel in 1928. The Depression, a World War, the abandonment of the rail line and the new focus on interstate travel and motels led to the demise of the property and it closed in 1974. Completely restored in 1980 by Randy Parten and renamed after a local geological oil layer, the hotel now boasts 12,000 ““fish scale” cedar siding, a standing seamed metal roof, restored native yellow pine woodwork and wrap-around porches. The building entered the National Register of Historic Places in 1980 and became a Texas Historic Landmark in 1982. The Woodbine is the perfect storybook romantic location for your destination wedding and reception. Visit our website at www.WoodbineHotel.com for our complete wedding packages.
