We stayed at the Culberson House this past weekend and can't say enough good things about it. My wife and I have been talking about ever since and recommending it to all of our friends. The house is beautiful is beautilful on the outside, but the inside is truly remarkable. We stayed in the Angel Suite and it was wonderful. The furnishings were out of this world and it even came complete with a secret passageway that opened up into the library -- how cool is that. The location is great and we easily walked the few blocks to get to all the antique shops, restuarants and other sights that Jefferson had to offer. Tamara and Hollis were wonderful hosts and we had the best time at the Culberson House and Jefferson. We will definitely be back.

We just had the best time we've EVER had at ANY bed and breakfast we've ever had. Don't let the elegance of this jewel make you feel like you have to be formal in any way. We rode in on our Harley. We were welcomed by the owner, Hollis. He went above and beyond to make our stay AMAZING!! The antiques and history of them and this house is incredible. He made it and this charming town make me want to look into the history even more. He asked on the phone before we left home what are we interested in doing while there. He said he will drive down to the lake and get the info on the gator/swamp tours and paddle boat so we will have that ready when we arrive. He did. He even had people to talk to when we arrived. But he made this elegant historical home feel like we stepped back into its rich history and we were living it. We relaxed on the back porch on these plush wicker couches and rocking chairs. We looked out over this plush yard with a fountain bubbling away sipping my tea. He let me choose what type of music I wanted playing quietly all over this mansion. I sat in the parlor near this piano that came over on a wagon. There is a hidden door that lead into my bedroom a back way. I have ALWAYS wanted to see one of those, let alone stay there. My bedroom had an old DEEP claw foot tub that I refused to get out of for hours. We were at total relaxation mode and just felt so at home. Hollis was so attentive and spoke so highly of his wife that I can't wait to meet her. We will be back!!!! If you miss out on this jewel you are missing out on a real find. just walked back late at night and crawled into our lush bed where we slept better than we have in a long time. Thank you Hollis
