The Hale House Inn has much to offer…from delicious refreshments upon your arrival to its six beautifully furnished guestrooms each with its own private bath. A Texas Gentleman's Breakfast is served each morning of your stay, either in the formal dining room or more casually on the north side porch and gazebo. Your day can then be spent sightseeing in this intriguing town with its many antique shops and historic homes or relaxing with your favorite book in one of our two common areas. You can even watch your favorite sporting event on our big screen TV or enjoy your favorite movie on the flat screen LCD in your room. Most weekends you can find several activities in or around Jefferson…from carriage tours to festivals and city-wide events. Mysterious Caddo Lake, the largest natural lake in Texas is just a short drive from the Inn.

Wonderful Birthday Weekend

5 on November 04, 2014

MaryAnn McDowell We stayed at the Hale House for my birthday weekend. It's a beautiful house. Our room was beautiful and very comfortable. The breakfasts were amazing and we were able to eat out on the deck. The weather was perfect. The Inn-Keeper is probably the nicest one I have every met. He was very attentive and wanted to make sure out stay was perfect. He also had answers to any questions we had about Jefferson and the surrounding area. All in all we had an excellent stay. I would recommend the Hale House to everyone.

great weekend

Timm Jackson greeted us on our arrival, gave us keys and explained how he operated the Hale House. He also pointed out that they provide beverages and snacks 24 hours a day. During our stay he and Karen were very cordial to all of the guests. It was very pleasant. The home was very well appointed.

Excelent experience!

This was the perfect B&B for my getaway! The owners made me feel like a princess. The house is beautiful and breakfast (served on the porch) absolutely delicious! Moments from downtown and owners make fine recommendations of what to see/do in town. Looking forward to my next visit.

Wonderful B&B to stay !

Inn Keepers were very welcoming, showed me all around, showed me refreshments, public rooms and then my wonderful room. Everything was clean as would be expected. I would definitely stay again.

anniversary weekend

Timm and Karen were lovely hosts and greeted us when we first arrived. It felt like we were staying with family. They had everything we could possibly need readily available. Their breakfast was the best we have ever had at a bed and breakfast. The home was charming and was walking distance from the main street attractions.We can't wait to go back and visit.

Great food and host. Good location. A glass in the bathroom would have been a nice addition. The breakfast was exceptional. We would stay there again.

Anniversary Weekend

5 on March 09, 2014

We spent the weekend at the Hale House to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. Timm and Karen were so nice and helpful. The breakfast they made was delicious with plenty of food. We stayed in the Southern Comfort room which was gorgeous. We had roses and chocolate covered strawberries waiting in our room. We had a carriage ride thru the Historical part of town and had dinner at the Austin Street Bistro. These were all recommended by the owners. They were available when needed and offered good information. The attached gazebo with porch swing was beautiful. We will be back again to stay at The Hale House. Thank you Timm and Karen for making our weekend perfect. 5 stars in my opinion.

Very Relaxing and Friendly Hosts

My husband and I stayed in the Texas Nights Room at the Hale House Inn for a weekend get-a-away. Everything about our stay was wonderful! The breakfast both mornings was delicious, our room was cozy and clean, and the hosts, Timm and Karen, were very welcoming and hospitable. I would recommend this place in a heart beat!
