"Wrapping up a business trip in Dallas? Take a 90-minute drive east to the small town of Mt. Vernon and visit The Veranda [903-588-2402]. It’s a beautiful B&B nestled in the Piney Woods of East Texas, only two miles from Lake Cypress Springs. The chef creates elegant meals — I recommend the Chilean sea bass if it’s on the menu — and the accommodations are first-rate. This secluded, quiet getaway would surely be a welcome change to a hectic travel schedule."
