An Enjoyable Stay

5 on December 06, 2014

We were very pleased with the charming house, excellent food and gracious hostess during our stay. The bed was as comfortable as our own. The stay was a great way for us to spend our 47th anniversary. I heartily recommend this Bed & Breakfast to anyone who needs a weekend away. Richard & Julie

My husband and I just spent one glorious night at the Benefield House Bed & Breakfast! The House and gardens are absolutely gorgeous. Donna is a wonderful hostess and amazing cook who takes such care to ensure your stay is perfect. We are looking forward to our next trip to Jefferson and another stay at this lovely B&B...

Birthday Getaway

5 on July 10, 2014

I planned a road trip for my sister's birthday which ended in Jefferson. The Benefield House B&B is completely charming. The Hummingbird Suite is spacious and inviting. Donna made us feel welcome and at home. She was very attentive to our needs. EXCELLENT! We will definitely visit again in the future.

Excellent B&B

Well, I had been several times in town, but this was the best experience ever... Many thanks to Donna & Frank for those wonderful days!

Benefield House B&B--A Wonderful Place to stay in Jefferson!

5 on June 29, 2014

What a gorgeous place! Our room, the Hummingbird Room, was larger than any B&B room we have stayed in, and we have frequented a number of B&Bs. The breakfasts were out of this world. from broiled grapefruit to strawberry cream cheese stuffed French toast. Every morning the breakfast exceeded our expectation! Just wish they served other meals! You will definitely enjoy your stay. Scott & Trisha

First And Best Experience

5 on June 24, 2014

My wife and I have never stayed in a Bed and Breakfast and she had never been to Jefferson, Texas so as our first Band B experience, We stayed at the Benefield House and spent the weekend antiquing in this beautiful town. The owners of the house were very warm and charming people and our room was taken care of just as well as any upscale hotel I have ever stayed in. Our room was gorgeous and beautifully appointed with Victorian touches all around. Our sleigh bed was extremely comfortable and the house was very quiet in a part of the town away from high traffic areas. The Benefield House is a delightful property where we were treated very well by the owners and I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a great place to stay while visiting the Historic town of Jefferson. The price for our room was very reasonable and we Truly enjoyed our stay. To the Langs, Thank You so much for such a great stay and thank you for understanding our not judging us regarding not partaking in breakfast. Your B and B is Top-Rate.

Wow Says It All...

My husband and I were looking for a quiet get away to celebrate 20 years of marriage. We started doing B&B's about three years ago, but we hadn't been to Jefferson. We chose the Benefield B&B because of its Victorian structure and the reasonable price. We were so pleased in every way: Greeted by Donna, a delightful hostess with a heart warming smile; Quaint comfortable rooms with no electronics; a café setup in each room complete with Keurig single coffee dispenser, multiple coffee selections, creamers, sweeteners, coffee cups, and stir sticks; toiletries that one may have overlooked when packing; common area with cold drinks, ice, snacks, and coffee/tea; an outdoor porch that wraps to the side gardens with a view of the flower arbor and fountain; a short walk to the many other historic buildings including several museums, eateries, antique shops, and the Big Cypress Bayou. Donna and Frank, thank you for opening your home to us, and for your part in making this an extra special anniversary! Fond Regards, Donna & Garrett E. Lavon, TX

Great B&B experience!

Recently we spent a couple of nights at the Benefield House B&B in Jefferson, Texas. This was our third stay there and I think it is getting even better. Donna is a wonderful host and also a great cook. Her breakfasts are beautiful, creative and delicious. We always get the Cardinal suite mainly because it is downstairs and has an adjourning sitting room. Donna has rearranged the Cardinal bedroom and it is even more comfortable. The bed is great, and Donna pays a lot of attention to things like bed linens, pillows and towels. The house is beautiful yet homey and comfortable. All rooms are equipped with period appropriate furniture and decorative objects. My wife and I are originally from the general area and we have been going to Jefferson all our lives but we still enjoy it! It is a great old town. B&Bs are our preferred places to stay while we travel and the Benefield House in Jefferson, TX is simply the best B&B we have ever experienced.

Best Experience Ever!

5 on March 24, 2014

Staying here was just about the best experience of my life. A beautiful place inside and out, just like our hostess Donna! It was actually my first B&B and it was way beyond what I thought it would be. It was beautiully decorated and extremely well maintained with everything you can think of to make your stay a memorable one. The breakfast was amazing as well. When we left I felt like I was leaving family! I highly recommend the Benefield House and can't wait to go back!

We stayed three days
