Three Oaks Bed and Breakfast

One of Marshall's landmark Victorian homes, Three Oaks was built by Paul Goodwin Whaley, a prominent local businessman, in 1895. It reflects the grand opulent era of the Victorian Age, as tastes shifted from clutter towards elegance. All of our original leaded glass transoms and windows are in place, and the woodwork and floors remain unpainted, finished in a dark glowing patina of cared for antiquity.

Located one-half block from the restored historic T&P Depot with the Texas & Pacific Railroad Museum and the beautiful Ginocchio Hotel, you can watch the trains while you rock or swing on the porch. Also, within a short walking distance is the historic Courthouse and museum, the Michelson Museum of Art, restaurants, pottery, antique, and craft shops in downtown Marshall. Just across the street is the beautiful and interesting Allen House, owned by the Conservation Society and available for group tours.

This magnificent 24 room structure highlights original leaded glass transoms, seven hand carved fireplace mantels, egg and dart trim, beamed ceilings, cut glass French doors, polished wood columns, oak and heart pine flooring.

The home is embellished with period antiques, including both American Victorian and Eastlake that came up the Red River by steamboat.


You may choose to enjoy the inviting porch, play either the antique square grand piano or the pump organ in the parlor or you might like to just relax under one of the three surviving Burr Oak trees grown from acorns brought from the Old Country.
If you are coming for business, Three Oaks is only a few blocks from both the County Courthouse and the Federal Courthouse. With our family living upstairs, you have complete privacy downstairs.

Amtrak arrives in Marshall twice daily and is an enjoyable way to travel. If you are arriving by train, you may arrange to have Enterprise Car Rental (800-325-8007) deliver and pick up your car at Three Oaks.

Three Oaks is only 15 miles from mysterious Caddo Lake (boat tours available) and historic Jefferson. Shreveport's Gambling Boats and Louisiana Downs Racetrack are only 40 minutes away. You might enjoy a performance at the Marshall Civic Center, Champion Barrel Racing at Josey Ranch, an event at the City Arena, one of our great festivals or golf at the municipal golf course.

Breakfast at Three Oaks is a selection of fresh and homemade fare. Please let us know if you have allergies to certain foods or pets. The large dining room may be used for office space if prior arrangements are made. Due to the historic nature of the house and furnishings, Three Oaks is inappropriate for children under 12 or guest pets.

Off-street parking, central heat & air, ceiling fans, cable TV, VCRs, DVD players, and free Internet access. Amtrak or rental car arrangements. Corporate Rates and services available.
