Birthday weekend girlfriend getaway 1/16/15

5 on January 26, 2015

My husband treated my best friend and I to a weekend getaway to celebrate her 50th birthday. We had a blast ghost hunting. The breakfast was so delicious each morning we had to take pics just to show our family and friends. The hospitality from Jessie is top notch. We enjoyed sitting by the fire with a glass of wine each night and visiting with the other guest. This was a birthday she will not forget. Jessie even had a cupcake in our room for her. We are already planning our next get away and looking forward to breakfast. This is a great place to stay. Highly recommend you try it.

Innkeeper Response
What a wonderful weekend it was. It was so nice spending this special birthday weekend with you two. Thank you for the wonderful review on the food and the hospitality. It comes easy when we have the most amazing guests come and stay with us. We all look forward to seeing you all again soon.

Our Favorite B&B!

Carriage House is the only place we'll stay in Jefferson. The location is perfect and we love the separate cottages that are pet friendly. The added touches since W.G. and Jessie became owners are perfect additions to an already great place to stay and relax! Thank you for everything! We'll be back!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for the kind words. It is so appreciated. We do enjoy meeting all of our guests especially the many variety of dogs that get to travel with their families to our bed and breakfast. Looking forward to your next visit.

Special Birthday celebration

5 on January 26, 2014

Two friends met me in Jefferson for the weekend to celebrate my birthday. The Carriage House was a special gift for us all. The structure is perfect for a "getaway" weekend. However, the hospitality far exceeds the norm. Stephanie and Joe were there to be sure our trip was flawless. The breakfasts cannot be described. You must try them appreciate our delight. Thank you so much for making this day even better.

Unforgettable stay!!!!

We rented two rooms, the "Ladybird" and the "Diamond Bessie", if we were to describe our stay using one word it would be "Outstanding!". We were VERY PLEASED with everything, the rooms were EXCELLENT as was the service, food, etc! We're pleased enough that we're booking two rooms again for the end of Jan '14. Do yourself a favor, Reserve your stay at "The Carriage House". First Class in every catagory!!!

Super Getaway !

My wife and I have stayed at the Carriage House on two different occassions. The last time was approx. two weeks ago. The Carriage house is absolutely fantastic, very relaxing and extremely romantic in a town that has anything you want. The breakfast is unique and always delicious. Even though we chose to stay in the main house during both stays, the experience was superb offering extreme privacy and a very relaxing atmosphere. Tom and Stephanie are very gracious hosts and will help in making your stay a wonderful experience. We cannot wait to schedule our next visit. Clent and Diane Rambin Doyline, La.

Tom & Stephanie were great hosts; the rooms were perfect, and the breakfasts were very tasty. This is why I stay at B&B's as much as I can. This was my first visit to Jefferson and I had a lot questions about the area and Tom and Stephanie answered all. Downtown Jefferson is a block away and Tom also arrranged for a swamp tour at Caddo Lake which I cannot recommend enough. I am a native Texan and never knew this area was so great!

Great Owners--would stay again

The owners of this B&B are simply first-class. If you want a nice quiet get away (especially if you or your loved ones enjoy antique shopping), then this B&B in Jefferson is the perfect place to stay.
