The Gazebo is a two-story Georgian-style home designed and built by owners Clyde and Janet McMurray in 1981.

As educators, your on-site innkeepers have an appreciation of American history and have spent many years acquiring American Empire and Victorian antique furniture to compliment family heirlooms.

A gazebo was constructed in 1993 for our daughter's wedding reception, and thus the name.

A large gathering room is both antique and modern, including  Satellite TV and wireless high speed Internet,  VCR, DVD/CD, phone, treadmill, reading areas, and a cooler filled with complimentary drinks for your comfort. Or you may desire to soak in the arbor-covered hot tub in a yard canopied by many beautiful oak trees as you gaze at the stars.

You will enjoy the four spacious bedrooms upstairs, each reflecting warmth and character.

The beds and other furnishings are representative of homes in a time past, yet offer modern comfort. Each air-conditioned room has hardwood floors, oriental carpets, ceiling fans, lace curtains, writing desk, and sitting areas for reading or relaxation.

In the morning, coffee or tea in silver service will be awaiting you outside your door if desired. Or you may prefer to leisurely relax in the screened-in back porch furnished with turn-of-the century wicker, or sit in the gazebo, or on the patio absorbing the smells and sounds of nature as well as a bubbly water fountain. A full gourmet breakfast in a Victorian setting will be served in the authentic antique furnished dining room.

A Texas Main Street city, Bowie offers many antique and collectible shops, tea rooms, 2nd Monday Trades Days, as well as many other festivities during the year. We strive to offer our guests comfort, privacy, relaxation, and Southern hospitality in a small, rural, Texas Main Street town.

If you love flea markets, then make a stop in Bowie on Second Monday weekend of each month to stroll through North Texas' longest running trade days. More than a hundred years ago, Trade Days were born out of necessity in 1893, as early pioneers traded animals and equipment to aid their struggle to sustain life in the Old West.

Second Monday has something for everyone, from antiques to the latest electronic gadgets. Enjoy a weekend of eating fresh roasted corn or cotton candy, while strolling through Second Monday.
