The Inns of Edom Offer Room to Breathe
Travelers from near and far “follow the star” formed by the five streets that connect at the heart of downtown Edom. There they find several shops with beautiful hand-made pottery, jewelry, woodwork, photography, guitar art and more created by resident artists, as well as good grub at the award-winning Shed Cafe.
For those wanting to stick around to soak up a bit more of the Edom magic — in town or country — a quick drive brings visitors to five rustic and shabby chic retreat centers with exquisite views.
Trinity Pines Retreat & Conference Center is just a few miles down FM 279 towards Tyler with four guest houses and a log cabin lodge. The grounds include a walking track, swimming pool, lots of porches and resting areas, and there’s an indoor tennis court. Explore at trinitypinesedom.com.
Continuing east on 279, find Mariposa Cabin nestled in the woods just past the beautiful Blue Moon Gardens. The hand-crafted one-bedroom cottage is ideal for some peace and quiet and short hikes on 80 acres of nature’s best. Explore Mariposa at vrbo.com/354940.
Also east of Edom is Wood Haven Cabins Retreat with numerous facilities for getaways and gatherings. The structures are hand built from cedar trees harvested from the surrounding land and they have wood floors and porches, and overlook a private lake. Explore atwoodhavencabins.com.
Northeast of Edom is Dragonhead Retreat that is situated atop a 675-foot hill providing amazing views of the countryside. Guests may choose from The Lodge at the end of a ridge with a spectacular view or the Cedar Cabin nestled in the woods at the foot of the hill. Explore at dragonheadretreat.com.
South of Edom is The Farm House featuring a main lodge and corn cribs, plus game and entertainment rooms, a hot tub perched atop a wooden tower with great views, a bath house, ponds, and an over-the-water deck with fireplace, grill, and picnic tables. Explore farmhouseretreat.com.
