A Texas Culinary Resort
Elm Creek Manor is much more than a culinary Inn & Spa; it is about creativity and respect for whole foods.
- We raise our organic herbs, fruits, vegetables and fresh eggs. Plus we raise our dairy goats, chickens, fish, rabbits, and beef.
- All cheeses are handmade artisan cheeses from our dairy milk. We keep bees for fresh honey and wax for our Artisan cheeses.
- Guests seek our venue for its uniqueness and our ability to bring fresh, peak of perfection bounty to the table.
- The ultimate farm to table experience. We appreciate that our guests arrive anticipating all of our organic whole foods. These include our meats, milk, eggs and cheeses, and farm fresh vegetable. As a small Inn, we create the same meals for all guests (guests select their entree before arrival). As such, our complete sourcing from our farm limits our ability to adapt to guests with restrictive or fad diets (inquire before making a reservation). We can accommodate Flexitarian & Gluten Free but do not prepare Lacto Vegetarian, Vegan or Ovo Vegetarian diets. We must have dietary restrictions within 10 days of arrival. Many guests order the Vegetable Frittata as a main course, who are not vegetarian (ordering a Frittata does not indicate to us that you are a vegetarian). Make sure, that we are aware of your dietary restriction, prior to your arrival.
