Wonderful!

This was a wonderful little bed and breakfast. My wife and my Anniversary date is April 1st and of course it was on Easter this year, so after church we headed out to Jefferson to spend the night and enjoy Jefferson. We couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay! Beautiful, quiet and comfortable. Very clean and accommodating. We would not hesitate to recommend this B&B to anyone looking for a great place to stay in Jefferson, Texas! 2 thumbs up!


Lovely, Romantic Home

4.8 on March 26, 2018

We stayed for the weekend, in the Bluebird Room. The room was spacious, with a sitting area in the bay window/turret. The full weekend breakfast was delicious -- warm yogurt, sausage, skillet potatoes and strawberry bread pudding(baked french toast?) on Saturday, with sausage, biscuit, grapefruit topped with toasted coconut, and an herb fritatta on Sunday. They keep a coffee bar stocked downstairs as well as in each room. The downstairs also has a microwave, small fridge stocked with water and soft drinks, and they serve cookies for an evening snack. Incredibly private and peaceful! The hosts are accommodating of requests, and attentive to anything you might need.

Fun stay in Jefferson

3.0 on March 22, 2018

We had a very pleasant stay at the Benefield House. It's a beautiful home and the hosts were gracious. The breakfast was excellent and they did their best to accommodate our vegan requests. The bedroom/bathroom was very spacious and the bed very comfortable. Being an atheist, I was a bit put off by the bible next to the bed and the evangelical Christian book on a table in the foyer but understand most visitors will appreciate those.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for taking the time to write! We are so glad you enjoyed Jefferson, breakfast, and our b&b. We have always wanted to make comfortable and relaxing surroundings for all of our guests,we are so sorry you did not find it that way. Again, thank you for your review and thank you so much for staying with us!

Weekend Getaway

We stayed one night in the Hummingbird Room for a little weekend getaway. Everyhing was lovely! The room was clean/fresh, the house is gorgeous, the breakfast and cookies were delicious, and Frank and Donna were very kind/attentive hosts. We had zero complaints.


Candlelight Tour of Homes Weekend

5 on December 14, 2017

We had a wonderful weekend stay at the Benefield House. We stayed in the Bluebird Bed Chamber. The bed was extremely comfortable and the sunrise through the stained glass windows was beautiful. This old home was so sound, they just don't build them like that anymore. Breakfast each morning was delicious. Donna made sure everything was just perfect. We will definitely be back in the future!

Amazing B&B!

5 on July 22, 2017

Amazing B&B! Our stay was perfect in every way. The entire house was immaculate! Each room tastefully decorated and when we entered the house it was like stepping back in time. We stayed in the Bluebird room. Each room has its own bath and a king size comfy bed! What a peaceful and perfect way to spend some time away from the real world. I cannot say enough nice things about the inn keepers. They were so gracious. I would definitely give this place a 5 star review!


A Hidden Treasure

4.8 on July 17, 2017

The Benefield House was our last night of vacation on the way home from New Orleans. I wish we had stayed there on the way as well. It was absolutely lovely!!! We had the two rooms upstairs and they were both beautiful. The beds were so comfortable and the breakfast was delicious. I would recommend a stay here and hope I get the opportunity to return soon. Thank you Donna for your hospitality, we so enjoyed our time at the Benefield House.

Exceeded Expectations

5 on May 29, 2017

My wife and I choose The Benefield House for our 5th wedding anniversary getaway and also as our first bed and breakfast experience. We were not let down. The house is amazing, room was exactly what we expected, and service was on point! We have two children and one on the way so the opportunity to disconnect and have uninterrupted adult conversation is very rare. We are happy that we chose The Benefield House as our destination!! We will be back!!!!


Art Retreat 2017

5 on May 03, 2017

This is not my first rodeo with Frank and Donna. This is the third time I've stayed at the Benefield and there is a reason for that. Frank and Donna have made a home away from home. My first experience was over a weekend for a wedding and the hotel accommodations that we had were frightening, to say the least. After 10 minutes on the phone we found Benefield, and Donna just happened to have the Hummingbird Room available. When I walked in she hugged me and welcomed me and from then on, I don't stay anywhere else. Donna is an amazing hostess and cook and she works very hard to make sure I am comfortable and I have everything I need.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for taking the time to write and for your kind words. It was and will always be my pleasure and joy to have you stay with us. Thank you again!!
