Plan a romantic East Texas getaway

Texas is a big place and it has activities to keep you busy from one end of the state to the other.

Embark on a journey to The Bird & Butterfly Inn, located in the picturesque Piney Woods, where you’ll discover the epitome of romance. Here, amidst the serene beauty, you’ll find everything Texas has to offer, making it the perfect East Texas getaway for your romantic weekend retreat.”

Wine Tasting Dinner

An intimate wine pairings dinner

Maybe your idea of a romantic East Texas getaway includes a great meal and fine wine … look no further than our wine pairings dinner series. We allow just 20 guests at these private events, which keeps the evening feeling special and allows each attendee to have personal interactions with the presenter. It’s typically five courses and six wines and we work hard to ensure that the food is as good as each wine presented. We have dates available in May and July, and in October we’ll be doing something totally different, a Spirits Night! Keep an eye on our events page so you’re always in the know, or email us at to be added to our wine pairings events distribution, and never miss an announcement.

East Texas getaway for the outdoorsy couple

Some couples connect by spending time together on outdoor adventures. If that’s you and your sweetie, Lake Sam Rayburn offers a number of activities you can enjoy. Take a scenic drive to Powell Park and rent kayaks or a paddle boat to explore miles of coastline. You could easily make a day of it so plan to take a break at their café and enjoy lunch (we strongly recommend the Philly cheesesteak!). It’s a campground as well so there are other provisions like sunscreen if in your haste to hit the water, you forget yours.

If trails and hiking are more your thing, the Piney Woods of East Texas offer many options and our Jasper bed and breakfast is centrally located to a number of nearby forests and state parks. You and your partner can venture off for a day and enjoy East Texas hiking trails. With Martin Dies, Jr. State Park just 25 minutes south of us, you’ll find both hiking and paddling trails scattered throughout the park. Cap off a great day with a great sunset – hike the Sandy Creek trail, which is just 0.8 mile long, to Sunset Vista, a shoreline spot offering a quiet place to view the colorful sunset over Steinhagen Lake.

Does your East Texas getaway afford you multiple days to explore? Venture just north of us is to the Angelina National Forest. For the history buffs, head to Boykin Springs and take the 5 ½ mile Sawmill Hiking Trail. Halfway through, a short spur in the trail will lead you to the abandoned Aldridge Sawmill site. Ruins of old bridges and sawmills can be seen at various points along the trail. Bring water, good shoes, a picnic lunch, and your camera!

Wherever your travels take you, wind up your day at Overlook Park, just two miles from The Bird & Butterfly Inn. It’s a great spot for endless lake views and breathtaking sunsets, especially in the summer, when the sun sets right over the lake.

A quiet and quaint place to simply unwind

Maybe for you, a romantic weekend away consists of a destination that feels like you’ve left the harried and hustled, and escaped to a world away from the everyday. If so, then you’ve found it! Book one of our charming and romantic rooms, wake up Saturday to one of our great breakfasts, and then head to town, making sure to visit a couple of our favorite antique shops (like Junktique or Red Wagon Resale) for a sweet memento to take home.

But which room to pick? Our Little White House is one of our most romantic spaces. Maybe you’re planning an East Texas getaway and need the perfect backdrop to pop the question … maybe you’re newly married and just need a quiet weekend away … maybe you’re toasting many years together. No matter the circumstances, this charming standalone cottage offers a romantic setting, including a candlelit fireplace, a sumptuous bathroom with an extra-long soaking tub, and a private porch with a swing just for two. With just a few days’ notice, we can add a romance package that will really surprise and delight your sweetheart, so add flowers, strawberries, and bubbly and get your weekend off to a romantic start.
