Loved this gorgeous house. We took the tour several years ago and I would gladly take it again. You can stand in the hall and look up at the gorgeous colored stain glass window, this is where it gets its name. I'm sure it is lovely at Christmas.

Price of the tour expensive, the house keeper gave the tour instead of the guardian of the home so felt a little cheated. We also were not allowed to go all the way up to the top to see the stain glass in the copolla, that was disappointing. But if you like antiques, southern history, and beautiful grounds, take the...

Thanks to Trip Advisor, we decided to book a couple of nights at "The House of the Seasons" Needless to say we were not disappointed. We arrived late on Friday evening and Shirley called just as we were pulling up to check to see when we would be arriving. She checked us in, and took us to our room. We... More

Shirley was so nice to give the Cub Scouts a tour after hours. The home is incredible and no one would ever be disappointed to see such an incredilbe home!

The House of the Seasons was built for Benjamin H. Epperson in 1872, and it has long been recognized as one of the most interesting Victorian houses in Texas. It ranks with the Fulton Mansion in Rockport, East Terrace in Waco, the Steves Mansion in San Antonio, and even the Bishop’s Palace in Galveston. The House of the Seasons is... More

While in Jefferson this past weekend, decided we had to see this house. We had already had a lovely stay at another bed and breakfast for two nights, and we were across the street from this house. We saw the lights on in the cupola at night and decided we had to extend our stay in Jefferson one more night... More

This is a beautiful place, wonderful rooms, inviting grounds and garden. Shirley made us two exquisite breakfasts and even cooked a chocolate sheet cake for later in the day. She knows her stuff and gave us a great tour of the house. Recommended!

The house was lovely, but to tour was only so-so and we did not get to go all the way to the top to see the stained glass windows that the home is named for. Wish we had been informed of that when we booked the tour.

We stayed two nights in the Presidential Suite which was the largest room I've ever stayed in! We had a lovely comfortable huge bed, and seating area, a hot tub in the room then the ensuite with shower, there was even our very own Christmas tree. After our first breakfast we were given a tour of the main house that... More
