Mothers day gifts: The Angelina River’s best-kept secret

Our charming inn sits on eight peaceful acres on the banks of the Angelina River, making it the perfect location for a little rest and relaxation. Our rave reviews say The Bird & Butterfly Inn is “a gorgeous property to disconnect from urban life,” and we couldn’t agree more. We fell in love with this lovely property nestled in the woods on a peaceful river with an expansive porch, perfect for whiling away an afternoon. We hope the mom in your life will fall in love with it, too!

Mom will arrive to a cozy room with a comfortable bed and luxury sheets, and she can take a stroll through the spacious grounds. Our property has an outdoor fire pit, landscaped gardens, and a large, wrap-around porch with fans and rocking chairs, all perfect spots for unwinding outdoors. Your special lady will love reading a good book by the fire or sipping a glass of wine while enjoying views of the Angelina River. In the morning, Mom will wake up to coffee on the porch or the viewing deck, followed ;by a scrumptious breakfast, including delights like our signature Crème Brulé French Toast, and we begin every breakfast with our fruit course accompanied by vanilla yogurt and crunchy granola.

Pick the perfect accommodations

Our bed and breakfast has five unique rooms well-suited for any getaway. Mom can bring her partner for a romantic weekend in the Little White House, a cottage complete with an elegant candle-lit fireplace, or the Rutledge Retreat, a stately room with a deep soaking tub for the perfect bubble bath.

If a girl’s trip is more mom’s style, she and her gal pals can book the Pullman Car Room for your mothers day gifts. This large guest room, designed to look like an old Pullman train car, has four beds and just outside is our game landing, for evenings spent chatting or enjoying cards or a board game. Mom and her friends will love a cookout (complete with a bottle of wine!) at our outdoor grill and spending their evenings relaxing by the firepit.

Pamper mom with a mothers day gifts package

Complete the stay with one of our luxurious packages, the perfect addition to any getaway. With a little heads-up, we can have a bottle of chilled bubbly and a plate of chocolate-covered strawberries ready and waiting for her on arrival.

Give her the full Bird & Butterfly Inn experience by booking her stay during one of our elegant Texas wine pairings dinners. These special events provide attendees the opportunity to share a carefully curated, five course dinner paired with hand-selected wines. We’ve still have availability for our May event, and we will be announcing our July 24 wine pairings dinner, as well as our final event for 2024, October’s “Spirits Night” so you can start planning early.

What to do in Jasper

East Texas has tons of locations for scenic nature walks, excellent antiquing opportunities, and local dining. Give mom a few ideas of things to do, whether she likes taking in the great outdoors or loading up shopping bags with unique finds.

Enjoy the peaceful outdoors of East Texas with a stroll through one of many natural areas like the Angelina National Forest or a stop at Overlook Park, a picturesque park on Lake Sam Rayburn (and probably our top “sunset spot” as in the summer, the sun sets right over the lake). For the more active, rent a kayak and explore the reservoir or go for a hike in nearby Martin Dies Jr. State Park.

We aren’t called “The Bird & Butterfly Inn” for no reason! There are plenty of birdwatching and butterfly-spotting opportunities in Jasper, known as “The Butterfly Capital of Texas.” The grounds of our inn are filled with butterfly-attracting plants, so you can see these magnificent pollinators particularly in our terraced landscape area on either side of our waterfall. You can spot Monarch, cloudless sulfur, and red-spotted butterflies can all be seen around Jasper, and on our property. And you’re sure to see a few of our hummingbirds, as we have a number of feeders on the front porch for them.

Many unique Texas birds can be observed in the surrounding forests and around the bodies of water in Jasper. Send Mom off with some binoculars to Boykin Springs, known as one of the best birdwatching spots in East Texas. Species like colorful painted buntings, energetic woodpeckers, and tiny nuthatches can be spotted among the trees. Lake Sam Rayburn is an ideal location for spotting waterfowl, including loons, grebes, white pelicans and our mascot, the Great Blue Heron. And it’s not uncommon to spot Bald Eagles, which is always a treat. Make sure Mom packs a pair of binoculars and a camera!

If your mom loves a good shopping spree, send her to town, where she’ll find some great shopping. Some of our faves like Junktique and Jasper Thrift stock a selection of curated vintage clothing, or moms can expect to find one-of-a-kind furniture at The Tattered Suitcase, The Rusty Rooster, or The Speckled Hen Mercantile.

Lunch and dinner can be as casual as a great burger from Hamburger Depot (always a favorite!) or she can try Jasper’s newest – and most anticipated – new restaurant, The Jewel Bistro Café on the downtown square. We’re anxiously anticipating their opening in May. And just a short ten-minute drive from us is The Rayburn Resort, where mom may enjoy a glass of chardonnay and their grilled salmon.

If you’ve been fretting over picking the perfect Mothers Day gifts, plan a stay with us to give your mom a present she’ll talk about for years to come. Book now or send a gift certificate to treat mom to a little Texas-style rest and relaxation this spring.
