The Beckham Hotel is a historic hotel in Mineola, Texas with a 130-year tradition of comfort and luxury. We're an elegant, jazzy and classy hotel that is reminiscent of the Roaring Twenties. We have a kind, neighborly desire for you to have the experience of a lifetime. With our warmest welcome, we invite you to climb aboard and come see us here... we'll be waitin' by the station!

The Beckham Ballroom is a beautifully grand, ornate venue for all types of events. Historically accurate antique chandeliers dance elegantly from the high ceilings as their tiers of crystal sparkle. Massive windows and mirrors line the walls of the historic room. Golden chairs and glass tables shine under the brilliance of the light, reflecting off dark burnished wood. Now available for anything from luncheons, parties, weddings, receptions, dances, to even sports parties, the ballroom seems to have jumped, mesmerizingly beautiful, straight out of a novel!

Experience the immersive antique experience of the Ironhorse Bar And Spirits, or smoke a premium hand-rolled cigar at the Ironhorse Cigar Bar.

The Beckham: the feel of the old- the conveniences of the new.

Fishing Report from TPWD (Jun. 12)

GOOD. Water Stained; 76 degrees; 0.36 feet above pool. Bass fishing has been slower this week than last week. Topwaters frogs, Yellow Magics, and spook type baits are fair in and around flooded grass or weeds. Texas rigs and shaky heads flipped at the edge of grass in 2-5 feet are good with creature type baits and beavers. Chatterbaits are good also in front of the shallow grass. Sunny days you can catch fish out to the first break line. Cloudy days fish are best to fish tight to the grass edges. Report by Marc Mitchell, Lake Fork Guide Service. Black bass are good morning and evening with top water frog patterns. Switching mid morning to noon streamers in shad and bream patterns. Report by Guide Alex Guthrie, Fly Fish Fork Guide Service. Lake Fork crappie fishing is getting red hot like the weather this week. Really seeing the black crappie load up in big numbers on lay downs, under docks and on other structures they like in the summer months. Look for those black crappie in 14-22 feet of water mostly. We also are seeing the white crappie loading up on brush piles and those summer time trees they like. Best depths for the white crappie have been 18-26 feet. We are still catching good numbers of crappie on small hand tied jigs and I’m sure small plastics will work as well. Did see some fish on brush piles the last few days that minnows may help with. The channel catfishing is excellent as it always is on Lake Fork. Bait you a hole near timber in 18-25 feet close to a creek channel. Use cattle cubes or sour grain to attract and hold those fish. Trees that have overnight roosting birds are a great place to make your hole. Use any prepared catfish bait of choice to load the boat once you get the fish loading up. You can still find some spawning catfish up shallow around all the new flooded grass, brush or rocks. Lake Fork catfishing continues to be superb on baited holes around roosting trees. Catfish are good in 13-25 feet with prepared bait. You can also bait holes w
