So there’s this hotel in Nacogdoches that is right near downtown. Hotel Fredonia.
It’s a popular spot with my dad’s side of the family. (So see? It totally COULD be genetic!)
This hotel was built in the 50’s and has yesteryear charm with modern poshness combined. (The total makings of a lazy mom haven.)
I have been to many an event here. From reunions, to birthday parties, to Thanksgiving meals, to comedy nights… you name it, I’ve probably been here for it at some point in my life. (Hmmm… could I have been groomed for posh laziness all my life?)
At one point my brother even worked here. (He obviously missed something in the family genes.)
And even though the hotel itself is just beautiful, the MAIN reason we love to go to “the hotel” (as we all call it) is because my Grandfather loves to host us all there for lunch at the Cafe’ Fredonia.
And me-oh-my is the food there delicious!
We may or may not all cheer when Granddaddy wants to take us to the hotel for their Sunday buffet. Which he’s done TWICE since I’ve been home.
Needless to say, there’s been a lot of cheering around these parts. (And wearing of stretchy pants.)
We get to eat a fancy lunch surrounded by such a beautiful historic hotel in our town.

The only thing I haven’t done at the Hotel Fredonia is actually STAY at the Hotel Fredonia!
But I’ve hit this fabulous pool several times in my life.
While we were all together, we took the opportunity to take pictures of my Grandfather with his some of his great-grandchildren.
These cute bunch of kiddos all have gorgeous parents. Hence the cuteness.
And, um, they may also have those parents’ ham-it-up personality.
So, if you ever plan a visit to Nacogdoches, be sure and stop by (or stay at!) the beautiful Hotel Fredonia!
Tell ’em The Lazy Mom sent ya!
Then they’ll say, “huh?”
Then you’ll say, “You know… The Lazy Mom!”
Then they’ll say, “Who’s that?”
And then you’ll say, “Oh! Well, she’s…. nevermind.”
