My wife and I were out to visit some friends that I had not seen in about 30 years, when I graduated high school.. The Jesse Stone House was so much more enjoyable than staying at a hotel chain. The house was immaculate with so many interesting antiques. The Damaske's were great host and the breakfast was outstanding. We were very pleased to have found the Jesse Stone House. We plan on making a yearly pilgrimage to Watertown and definitely plan on staying at the Jesse Stone House when we do.

we had a very memeorable time at jesse stone. The home was interesting, and the antiques lovely. The owner even played the player piano for us. The breakfast was gourmet. We invited a guest for breakfast and they were welcomed by the owners.

The breakfasts there are really fabulous. Pat does out of her way to make it a great experience. I made a mistake in booking my room this year. It was my fault, but when I talked with Chuck on the phone, trying to figure out what to do, he was defensive and considering it was late at night and I would have had to find another hotel room in the area, I felt he could have been more compassionate. As it was, they made up the fold out in the TV room which worked well for one night. My room was available (as I booked it) for the next two nights. Pat was friendly and made me feel welcome.

Was just in town for one night. Very friendly hosts and extremely accomodating. Wished I could have stayed more than just one night.

We stayed 3 nights in quaint, historic Watertown while attending our son's wedding. Pat and Chuck provided a very clean and convenient place to stay for this event. If you enjoy the Bed and Breakfast experience, in a very old historic house with lots of antiques and three course delicious breakfasts, than you will like Jesse Stone House B&B. Chuck and Pat are very accommodating and helpful, including allowing our 11 year old son to use the hide-a-bed in the upstairs parlor near our room. They were especially kind and helpful to my wife’s parents, who liked the spacious bathroom and walk-in shower in Jesse’s Room. The queen size beds are very comfortable and soft. The breakfasts that Pat skillfully fixes are very delicious, nutritious and gourmet! It was a real bargain compared to local higher priced motels too!

The owners were very nice, room was comfortable and very nicely decorated. The shower was great, and the food was scrumptious. I would definitely stay there again.

This place was a great value. The bathroom and bedroom were absolutely clean, with no hint that they might have ever been used by some other guest. This is a big house with only two guest rooms, so there is plenty of space for everyone. The heat was set at a perfect level: I was never aware of being either hot or cold. Since it is an old house it really is not suitable for someone using a wheelchair or someone who might have difficulty climbing stairs. I never found the WiFi signal that was supposed to be there, but I decided I didn't need it anyway.

The accomodations were a perfect combination of modern comforts in a traditional setting - comfortable and clean. The breakfast was one of the best I have ever had at a B&B. The hosts, Chuck and Pat were warm, friendly and helpful but never imposing. The purpose of our stay was a reunion of old Air Force buddies (and their wives) after not seeing each other for over 50 years. The living room was the perfect place to renew old frienships in a relaxed environment.
