Built and designed specifically to be a bed and breakfast in 1995.
Woodrow House Bed and Breakfast is a beautiful, spacious 10 room Bed and Breakfast located across the street from Texas Tech University. Woodrow House Bed and Breakfast is within walking distance to virtually all Texas Tech University events and activities. When planning your next visit to Texas Tech University or Lubbock Texas, remember the Woodrow House Bed and Breakfast. We'd love to have you stay with us.
Built specifically to be a Bed and Breakfast, Woodrow House Bed and Breakfast is the culmination of four years of dreaming, planning, researching and designing by the owners and hosts, David and Dawn Fleming. The Woodrow House Bed and Breakfast is the first permanent structure built on the corner lot at 19th street and Boston Avenue in Lubbock TX. The Bed and Breakfast was built in 1995 and David and Dawn have been the sole operators and owners.
Woodrow House B&B is named after David's paternal grandfather, George Woodrow Fleming (1914-1972). Woodrow "Woody" Fleming was a Texas Rancher, agri-businessman, cotton ginner, grain merchant and entrepreneur.
A scrumptious full breakfast is served every morning either around the cozy breakfast bar or in the elegant dining room. Breakfast hours are 7-8:30 AM on Weekday mornings and 8:30-10 AM on Saturday and Sunday mornings.
