Reunion, Anniversary, Wedding, Family Retreat or Couples Weekend - enjoy an entire compound! Originally a bed & breakfast - The Veranda is a glorious 1920’s Victorian Home (and accompanying bunkhouse) that served as the areas most posh, upscale B&B for many years. Wealthy patrons from Dallas with lake homes on the beautiful Lake Cypress Springs referred to the “Mansion of Mt. Vernon” as the finest dining and one of the most picturesque setting in East Texas. Having just undergone a $1m+ restoration, the retreat is a 70 acre paradise incorporating a sanctuary of rest and relaxation as well as activities galore. Originally envisioned and operated by Robert Whiteside & Warren Butler, new owners Mark and Kelly Bunting made cautious (yet significant) upgrades to this famous property during the 2010-2012 season. The result is a fabulous retreat true to original intentions of the earlier owners, yet greatly enhanced and expanded. Just 100 miles due East on I-30 from Dallas – this paradise of tranquility and peace feels more like 1000 miles away!
