The Carriage House Bed and Breakfast

401 N. Polk St , Jefferson, TX 75657 USA (Show map)


The only Jefferson, Texas bed and breakfast located in downtown, the Carriage House offers attentive service, while bringing you the amenities of the finest hotels, plus we offer pet-friendly accommodations for those traveling with their four-legged friends! We are also handicapped accessible with a wide ramp into the main house. Whether you are coming for a family getaway or a romantic retreat, our seven cozy rooms and gourmet breakfast will make this a vacation worth remembering. The historically themed rooms, each with private baths, are dressed in restored antique furnishings with handmade quilts on the beds. We also started managing another property with Four more rooms, two stand alone cottages and two bedrooms inside the circa 1850’s house we call the “Sam Houston” house. So we now have eleven rooms available for booking. Enjoy your morning coffee while sitting in a rocking chair on the wrap-around front porch or watch the birds and butterflies play while relaxing in the garden courtyard. A multi-course gourmet breakfast is served each morning at 9 am in the main Dining Room. Some house specialties are Italian Frittatas, Caprese eggs, Croissant eggs Benedict, Smoked Gouda and Bacon Grits, or how about Bananas Fosters French Toast. We have conference rates as well. After breakfast, you will have all the energy needed to explore the Historic Riverfront District of Jefferson located just two blocks from shops and restaurants, so there is no need to drive

We truly enjoyed our stay!

Carriage House Bed and Breakfast was a welcome oasis of tranquility for my husband and I. Our room was oh so comfortable, the smoors by the firepit was very relaxing and the breakfast was to die for! Jessi, our hostess, was one of the most charming and sweet ladies that I have had the pleasure of befriending and I KNOW we will make it a point to return to Carriage House on a regular basis!

Great stay

My husband and I were there for 2 nights for a mini vacation. From the moment we arrived, Jessi and her staff made us at home! The service and hospitality is top notch. We loved it! The breakfast each morning is a work of art, the best we ever had at a B&B. The cozy courtyard with fire pit and beautiful garden area is a wonderful place to relax and get acquainted with new friends. The extra amenities are amazing. We loved sitting outside with s'mores in the evening and sipping coffee in the mornings while Jessi cooked breakfast. I highly recommend, we will return!

They have thought of everything!

Jessi was a great host. Constantly helped make our anniversary better with suggestions of things to do and where to eat. Outdoor fire on the patio every morning and evening. Great breakfast all four mornings with dessert served first. Nice room with claw foot tub & walk-in shower.

Loved the "extras" provided by the owners. Drinks, chocolate covered strawberries, snacks and s'mores fixings.

A hearty Italian breakfast full of robust flavor along side of our homemade sliced potatoes with a little extra flavor that has proven itself to be a favorite.
