My girlfriends and I have been to this B&B 3 times now. We love it. The facility gets better everytime we visit. The B&B is clean, cozy, homey and so pretty. The view of the river is lovely. The hosts are so nice and thoughtful. I highly recommend this B&B.

Fabulous place for a weekend getaway!

Love staying here- it is the fifth time we have stayed here. Beautiful rooms, great breakfast, friendly host, walking distance to shopping and dining. Going to celebrate our anniversary we were treated to the last night of lights from the annual Festival of Lights. Awesome a hundred times over!

R & R

4.0 on January 08, 2018

We had such a good stay at the Jefferson house. My hubby and I needed some alone time and some R & R. It was so peaceful and romantic. I love how it was right on the river. Our only complaint was that we couldn't cook or grill there, that meant we had to leave to go eat dinner. We would have loved to stay in the room and on the patio the entire visit.

Dog Friendly B&B

Greg & Lisa are awesome hosts. Their B&B is beautiful as well as the grounds. They are so very friendly and being able to bring my fur babies was the best! We will be back!!

Birthday Getaway

5 on June 05, 2017

Stayed at Jefferson House Bed and Breakfast as part of a birthday trip! The room was immaculate, the grounds inviting .... a perfect place for a glass of wine and a big dose of relaxation, breakfast was superb. Innkeepers went over and beyond the call of duty handled every inquiry, it was like staying at your favorite relative's house ...we felt so at home, made the time in Natchitoches perfect and a birthday to remember. Separate outside entrance made coming and going easy. Would highly recommend the Jefferson House to anyone planning a trip to this quaint town!
