Spring getaway!

Spring has sprung!  The weather is amazing and Mother nature has blossomed with her glory.  Experience this season with us.

Also be sure to visit Lavender Ridge farms

At Lavender Ridge Farms they grow lavender, herbs, zinnias and vegetables are all there for the picking at Lavender Ridge Farms seasonally. The lavender starts to bloom around mid May and continues through early July and sometimes through mid July. You can cut fresh lavender from the field beginning with our Lavender Festival which is always on Memorial Day weekend.

Originally a strawberry & melon farm in the 1920’s & 1930’s, Lavender Ridge Farms opened in 2006 as a lavender, cut-flower, and herb farm. The land here has been in our family for over 150 years and will be home sweet home for many years to come.

They are located just 8 miles east of Gainesville, Texas and just one hour from the Dallas-Ft. Worth Metroplex. .

Dining getaway!

When the weather is so wonderful what better way to getaway in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. 

Combine a relaxing stay at Elm Creek Manor with an amazing  gourmet 5 course fine dining  experience on a Saturday night with a casual 4 course pizza meal at Ancient Ovens,

Combining these two experiences allows individuals to experience North Texas at its finest.
