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

4.2 on March 25, 2011

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.
