Henrietta’s Heritage House

Hamlin Bed And Breakfast

The historic Henrietta’s Heritage House was built in 1909 as a grand Antebellum-styled family home, rich in history and character, style and architecture, with an underlying elegance that is timeless.
The current owner’s great grandmother, Henrietta Carpenter Moore, built the treasured house, where she lived along with her family. It has been one of the oldest and most beloved homes in Hamlin, and it is now Hamlin’s newest and most upscale bed and breakfast, chic and innovative — a six room, boutique hotel alternative for the discerning traveler. (R. D. Moore, Henrietta’s husband, donated the land where the City of Hamlin stands today. You can read more about the house’s rich history here.)
The family roots behind the property stretch all the way to today. Henrietta’s great grand-daughter, Patrice Moore Griggs, is the current owner of the home. Julie Moore, wife of David Moore, Patrice’s twin brother, has always had an interest in historic homes and renovation. Julie completely restored Henrietta’s home with artistic flare and loving touches. Julie has designed a fresh, traditional home ready to enjoy.
Julie is managing the day to day operations of the house. Patrice lives and works in Austin, but escapes to Hamlin as much as possible.
If there is a trend in modern travel, it’s a push towards properties that offer more than just basic luxury comforts for the guests. More and more people are searching for a more all-encompassing experience – blending in architecture, interior design, and luxury touches, right down to the exact detail – an underlying “story” that makes their stay all that much more unique. They want to feel almost like the experience was crafted just for them.
Henrietta’s Heritage House Bed and Breakfast, while revering the architectural history of the house, is a post-modern accommodation that addresses the needs, desires and personality of today’s traveler.
Our property and business has been designed to respect the comfort and privacy of our guests. Although you are staying in a semi-public accommodation, you will feel like you are our honored house guest.
While other guests will be staying in the property, you will feel no obligation to socialize with strangers—unless you want to. You will have your own quarters with ensuite bathroom in three of the bedrooms. Breakfast is served in the formal dining room, with a fireplace, fine china, and crystal chandelier, or you may choose to dine at a private table outside in the gardens or porch. It all depends on your preference. Making new friends can be a very fun experience, but we recognize that it’s not for everyone, and that everyone is unique and special!
In addition to your private room, you have various choices in public spaces for visiting with co-travelers, friends or just exploring. Indoors, these choices include an elegant formal entry with a baby grand piano and fireplace, or the cattleman’s parlor, with comfy seating in front of the fireplace.
Outside there are multiple places to sneak away and relax with a good book, or just enjoy nature, including the front wrap-around porch overlooking the front yard (a signature feature of the Antebellum, Southern-style U.S. homes), the upstairs covered veranda, or the Corsicana brick arbor terrace and gardens accessed just out the back door.
