Love is in the Air!

I’ve long been a believer that bed & breakfast inns are much more romantic that the traditional hotel, and that makes Woodrow House Bed & Breakfast the ideal spot to stage your Valentine’s Day surprise! Many of our rooms have already booked well in advance of this lovers’ holiday, so act fast to claim a…

Rolling Out the “Red” Carpet

Now playing: YouTube’s latest sensation: http://youtu.be/58ZcVWiKeww Okay, now that you have seen “it,” you may still be asking, “What exactly is The Red Chair, & why did it get the royal treatment when it made its 90th nationwide stop in Lubbock at Woodrow House Bed & Breakfast?” Very simply, The Red Chair blossomed from a…

Comphy Sheets – Changing the World One Bed at a Time

We are in the midst of that time of year – scrambling to decorate, bake & shop for the perfect gift for the people who are most important in our lives. So while my bed & breakfast elves are scurrying around wrapping stair banisters with garland & bows, I want to remind readers that Woodrow…

Good Clean Fun

On any given day, I’ll be the first one to say that I am truly blessed. Owning a bed & breakfast allowed me to be “home” as my four children were growing up, but it created a unique situation in that “home” was also “work.” Fortunately, each child developed their own unique personalities, & I…

Mount Up on Wings like Eagles

Envision yourself aboard a glider, being towed by another airplane, & your goal is to float noiselessly down behind enemy lines with a cargo of weapons, supplies & troops needed to secure victory in World War II. This simple idea sounds a bit like brilliant science fiction or, at best, an ill-conceived notion that is…

Not Fade Away

This title is so very appropriate! When I began this blog a while back, I fully intended it to cover an eclectic area of Lubbock known as the Depot District. Once I started putting the pieces together, it literally took on a life of its own & was morphing into a monster that I felt…

A Land of Cattle, Cotton & Cabernet

What would a proper girls’ weekend be without a serious adult beverage? I had the answer & a very specific destination in mind for my friends when they spent a fun weekend at Woodrow House Bed & Breakfast – Cap*Rock Winery (which ironically, is located on Woodrow Road just south of Lubbock, Texas). Surprised? Many…

B and B Texas-Style

Two years ago, the Carriage House, the newest addition to the Woodrow House Bed & Breakfast, was completed. This free-standing structure is located on the back portion of our property, & it includes a three-car garage, two full suites on the second floor & David’s “man cave” in the basement. We began construction on the…

How to Channel Your Inner Cowgirl!

  NOTE: Rockn’C Trail Rides is no longer in business. We hope they will be back someday, but in the interim, enjoy our equine exploits!   Woodrow House recently was the site of a fun-filled “Girls’ Weekend” that brought together three of my husband’s high school friends (Leticia Mata, Becky McLellan Mays & Diana Glover…

Cast a Vote for the President’s Room

It seems appropriate to feature Woodrow House Bed & Breakfast’s President’s Room amid all of the hoopla surrounding the impending presidential election. While choosing the right candidate might prove challenging, reserving beautiful accommodations while in Lubbock isn’t nearly as taxing. The President’s Room is located on the first floor with a separate entrance which opens…

Make a Dash for the 50 Yard Line Steakhouse

The 50 Yard Line Steakhouse is one of the best restaurants in town, & we never hesitate to recommend it to all our guests. Their attention to detail, from the fresh relish tray, hearty beefy onion soup, awesome cheese rolls and melt in your mouth blueberry muffins to the juicy steaks and crisp salad is…
