Girl's Getaway Weekend in Palestine
Built in 1914, and listed on the National Register of Historic Buildings, The Redlands Historic Inn (rates starting at $150) was created for travelers arriving on the railways; later, it housed the headquarters of the International & Great Northern Railroad. The current owners have restored it to its turn-of-the-20th-century glory, so guests will find antiques and period touches along with their high-definition cable TVs. Almost all the rooms are apartment-style, with kitchenettes, living areas, and a homey decor.
Stroll the gardens, settle into a rocking chair on the porch, or just enjoy your well-appointed room at the Magnolia Street Inn (rates starting at $100), located near downtown in a late-1800s Victorian house. The decadent breakfast might include crème brûlee-French toast or oatmeal-buttermilk pancakes, plus fresh-baked muffins.
Named one of the top 20 chefs in his native New Zealand, Simon Webster is now, along with his wife, Becky, the innkeeper at Sabor a Pasion (call for rates). Set on 25 acres just five minutes outside of town, the quiet B&B features simple queen bed rooms, made-to-order breakfasts, and sweeping views of the countryside. Cooking classes with the chef are also offered.
