Art Retreats at the Iron horse Inn Granbury

We had a wonderful time here at the Qiang Huang Oil Painting retreat last weekend! Qiang is not just a talented artist, but a very good teacher too. All of the participants loved his style of teaching and said they learned far more with him than with many other workshops they have attended.

These are the two beautiful works of art Qiang produced at the workshop during his demonstrations.

Workshop participants try out Qiang's techniques.

Qiang was a really patient and inspiring teacher - all of the participants learned a lot from him.

Qiang produces a painting a day for the Daily Painter - To view more of his work visit his blog

Fairytale wedding at the Iron Horse Inn Granbury

We were delighted to host the beautiful wedding of Holly and Jason Anderson yesterday. We couldn't have asked for a sweeter couple - Holly looked stunning and Jason was obviously a proud new husband!
The Iron Horse inn is the perfect setting for a wedding, with lots of space for guests in our lush green gardens.
The ceremony took place on the large sheltered porch, with guests seated in rows of chairs on the lawn at the front of our historic home.This is a picture of the stunning bride through the historic leaded glass of our porch windows. This picture of the wedding ceremony was taken from our living room window!
The lovely horse drawn carriage was provided by the Brazos Carriage company
We were delighted with the lovely singing voice of the wedding singer, Melissa Hubenak, her performancewas especially meaningful and moving as she is the sister of the bride!

Family re-unions at the Iron Horse Inn Granbury Texas

We love to host family gatherings and reunions here at the Iron Horse Inn, in Granbury Texas. We recently had a family re union of 24 people for an 80th birthday celebration. The family had a wonderful time and we loved having them stay with us. Here is one of the lovely reviews we received from a family member - "Its a great location for a family get together. the food was fantastic and the accommodations very comfortable!"

We have all sorts of combination of family get together - this group of 3 sisters -complete with matching tee shirts - enjoyed spending time together and catching up with each others lives. they loved their stay with us and we loved having them here! We have had grandmother, daughter, granddaughter groups stay with us and many sister groups. We recently had 5 cousins stay with us and enjoy catching up with each other in lovely relaxing surroundings.

This mother and daughter getaway were a delight to host and their lovely review said - "This establishment would be great to rent out for a group or family re union, as well as a private getaway for husbands and wives or mothers and daughters"

Why not try a getaway here yourself - gather some of your close family members and spend a night or two being pampered and enjoying some special time with the ones you love.
