My husband and I stayed here on June 11, 2016 in the Hummingbird Bedchamber. It was our first time to stay at a B&B. The pictures on her site are exactly true to the actual house. The room was clean, nice and cool and the bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was nicely presented and tasted great. Donna is an excellent host. We didn't realize that there wasn't a TV, however we listened to the relaxation cd's in the room and had a very nice time just visiting with each other.

Lovely location for quiet relaxation

We booked on a busy weekend and were concerned we would be far from downtown but it was very convenient to the shops and restaurants. Ask them to book a golf cart and the company will deliver it to the B&B. The room was immaculate, the bed was really comfortable, there were extra pillows and plenty of blankets. The ACwas cool and the rooms have overhead fans. Breakfasts were good both days and the owner was able to work around my dietary needs. The neighborhood was quiet, restful and inviting. We enjoyed early morning coffee on the porch. It's a smaller B&B so it felt very private. We didn't hear the other guests and I doubt they heard us. It was a great place for weekend away.

Great stay!

My husband and I chose to stay here for candlelight weekend. We have done candlelight now for about 18 years or so and usually try to stay somewhere different every year. I will say this is one of the nicest b&b we have stayed in. The room was very clean, breakfasts were great, and I enjoyed the homemade peanut butter cookies that were provided as a snack. Reminded me of the ones my mother used to make. He hosts were very helpful and easy to talk to. Would definitely recommend a stay here.


Exquisite Stay

My wife wanted to subtly celebrate her birthday and decompress from the summer’s activities with a return to the elegance of the Benefield House Bed & Breakfast. The facility and our Bluebird Room were immaculate and the bed was ohh sooo comfortable! We looked forward to the breakfast each morning to see what Donna had so caringly planned, perfectly cooked, and elegantly served. What a delightful way to wind up the summer and start the fall! Thank you Donna and Frank for the cherished experience that we can fondly look back on and look forward to visiting your Bed and Breakfast again!

Top Notch!

One of the best B&B's we've experienced! My wife and I spent two nights in the Cardinal Suite. The room is amazing! We were drawn to them specifically for the king sized beds in every room and a bath tub in every bathroom (2 non-negotiables for my wife). The house is amazingly quiet for such an old house with wooden floors. The breakfast was amazing each morning. Donna really puts out a great spread. From coffee in every room to snacks in the common area, the Lang's have thought about everything. And the bonus: no TV to ruin your getaway!


Wonderful Experience

My wife and I were married in the Benefield House. We had a very intimate and elegant ceremony. Donna is so friendly and made sure everything was perfect. We stayed in the Cardinal Bedchamber... it was very roomy, with a comfortable bed and lots of privacy. Donna serves incredible breakfasts. We would not hesitate to stay there again.


Incredible all around

My wife and I spent 2 nights here celebrating our anniversary. EVERYTHING about our stay was excellent. I chose the Hummingbird Room for our stay due to my wife's love for those little wonders. The room is tastefully decorated with purple walls (my wife's favorite color too). Plenty of "hummer" motif items throughout the room but it was not overdone. The highlight of the room, without a doubt, was the bed. The king size bed was probably the most comfortable bed we've ever slept on away from home. Firm but with a pillow-top mattress and padding you couldn't help but melt into it. The home itself is Victorian style with plenty of period décor throughout. Elegant would be an understatement for this home. Breakfast is probably my favorite meal of the day and I was not disappointed either day. Portions were generous and we left hardly a scrap on our plates! My wife commented that it was the best B&B food she's ever had. Who am I to argue with that? Last, and certainly not least, is the innkeeper/hostess Donna. In a word, she's a gem! Full of personality and extremely cordial, she was not imposing in any way. I've stayed in many hotels and several B&Bs in my lifetime and you can certainly get a very nice room. and usually decent food, from both. The key difference is that most hotel staff don't get to know you or don't have that personal connection. Some B&B owners are also like that. Not Donna! If we ever return to Jefferson we will undoubtedly stay here - unless Donna is no longer there - then we'd have to think about it!
