Nice place to stay :)

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at Chez Lafayette. Ms. Beth made is a very warm and cozy weekend. The room was nice and clean and bed was very comfy. I can't say enough about the breakfast!! It was magnificent! She way out did herself with choices and taste was wonderful. It was also nice to be able to have her sit with us and converse and just find out more about Jefferson and her life. We felt like family. Thank you Ms. Beth :)

Southern Charm in Jefferson

5 on August 03, 2016

I stayed at Beth's for one night on short notice and I could not possibly recommend this darling bed and breakfast more highly. Beth was so very hospitable and welcoming from the very start, helping me with arrangements prior to my stay and the care didn't stop there. Beth made sure I had everything I needed and then some during my stay. My room was wonderfully cool on arrival and the fridge constantly stocked and restocked with icy water. The whole place is beautifully decorated and maintained and if Jefferson itself wasn't such a great town, I could have very easily spent my whole stay flitting between Beth's porch and my sweet room. It is in an ideal location - nothing is farther than 5 minutes away! Beth helped me plan my visit in Jefferson and was a delight to talk to. She tailored breakfast to meet my dietary needs and boy, I will be hard pressed to dine so well again. I can offer no greater endorsement than to say that Beth provided me a home during my travels, a perfect example of southern hospitality, and on leaving, I found myself homesick for a place I spent just one night. I am eagerly anticipating my next visit.

An awesome time in Jefferson

So enjoyed our stay in the Granddaughters Cottage! Miss Beth graced us with a most delicious breakfast and heart felt stories. So looking forward to staying here again. Such a memorable experience. Thank you again, Miss Beth. Sue & Cathy

Outstanding Bed and Breakfast in Jefferson

4.8 on March 25, 2016

My husband and I met up with another couple in Jefferson so we rented both rooms at Chez Lafayette. Both rooms were beautifully decorated, clean and comfortable. The garden/courtyard was very pretty. Breakfast made by Beth who was a gracious host was delicious. I would definitely recommend this B & B to anyone who wants an outstanding B&B experience.

Great Place to stay

B&B is located in the downtown area so you can walk for antique shopping and food. Beth was a very gracious host and provided an excellent breakfast. Accommodations were cozy and comfortable. Will definitely stay there again when we come back to Jefferson

Candlelight Tour Stay

3.2 on December 11, 2015

Stayed during the annual Candlelight Tour of Homes. Location is convenient to all downtown attractions and a short drive to this year's homes (was on the tour once in the past). Friendly atmosphere. Stayed in the ''Granddaughters' Cottage" which had plenty of space for three of us.

A Cozy Getaway

4.6 on November 18, 2012

Chez Lafayette provided a cozy home away from home for our getaway. Granddaughters' Cottage allowed for privacy, while our hostess, Mrs. Crawford, prepared a delicious meal and opportunity for pleasant, interesting conversation during breakfast. We were within walking distance from any points of interest.

Fun & Friendly

Our hostess/owner, Beth, was very hospitable! This town has so much to see and to -- our stay was superb!

We stay at Chez Lafayette Bed and Breakfast, every year. Sometimes twice a year. We stay in the cottage. It is always so nice and clean. Beth makes you feel so right at home. She cooks the best gourmet breakfast in the world. Chez Lafayette is the best bed and breakfast in Jefferson, TX.

One of Our Favorites

Chez Lafayette is a favorite of ours. Ms. Crawford has a beautiful house filled with antiques, and is such a gracious hostess. Everything you need is there waiting for you, and the breakfast is to die for! We have stayed here twice and plan on coming back. Very. very nice!
