My husband and I gave my son and new bride a night here. They loved the room. They said it was a perfect honeymoon night. They really liked their host. They said they were sorry for all the glitter that got behind.

We are so glad they enjoyed their stay. They were such a sweet couple and the glitter was no problem! We hope to see them on many a return visits to celebrate their anniversaries! More

We have stayed at the McKay House several times and continue to love it/them. There is so much to say: the house was super decoraed for Halloween with lots of original touches, both in and out; the food was great as usual (we were there for three nights this time); our host and hostess were fun and funny and we...

I'll try and keep it short since most people that truly know know me, know this rarely happens. Of course this will be difficult because of the fantastic time I had at the "Alley-McKay" house. It was a weekend getaway with my mom, last weekend in September to be exact, and I couldn't have picked a better place. The house... More

We stayed at the McKay House, the weekend of my daughter's wedding. It was a very beautiful place, beds were very comfortable. The owner's went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed! Couldn't have been more pleased! We will be back!

You feel like you are staying at a friends house. Great hospitality! Jefferson is a wonderful mix of Cajun and Texan. Great BBQ, wonderful entertainment, and crazy amount antique shopping. There is also a nearby winery. Make a romantic weekend out of it or take your girlfriends for shopping and drinks. I love Jefferson and plan to return year after... More

The room was very comfortable, and Hugh made us feel very welcome, he cooked us a great breakfast and is very knowledgeable about the history of Jefferson and the McKay house. Great weekend getaway. We really enjoyed our day shopping all of the antique shops. Hugh provides a map of the town with all of the restaurants and recommended several... More

Thank you for staying with us. One of the best hardest things about Jefferson is finding your way around, so we're glad the locator map and guest guidebook worked well for you. We hope to see you again soon! More

Spending time at the McKay House is like being pampered at Grandma's! The cookies are awesome and coffee and teas were available whenever we wanted. We stayed in the Lady Bird room and the bed was just perfect, the room was spacious and clean and comfortable. I loved the antiques all through the house. We had some special needs and... More

Thank you again for staying with us. The front porch swing is one of our favorite places too, and late evenings or early mornings if one of us is missing that's where you'll probably find us - if we're not sneaking cookies ourselves. We hope to see you again soon! More

My wife and I spent a weekend night in the Grand Gable room. The home was beautifully decorated, and the rooms were very clean. The decor gives you the feeling of stepping back in time. Upon arrival, Hugh gave us a tour of the home pointing out the common areas and giving us valuable information about the town. He was... More

My husband and I had a wonderful stay. The room was large and comfortable. There are antiques everywhere and you felt you were staying in a part of history. We stayed in the main house. The inn keepers were very nice and friendly. You could not ask for nicer people. Breakfast was very good and filling! I like the touch... More

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay in Jefferson. Thank you so much for the info on the shower pressure. We only turn the water on a little to rinse away cleaner and had no idea the pressure had dropped in that room! Old house, old pipes, calcium builds up and we don't realize it some times. A little...

My husband and I had a nice stay. I could not have been more delighted with our room! We were very comfortable and we felt at home! Breakfast was an experience in itself. It was great!

Thank you for your comments. We were training the young lady to be an innkeeper. However, she had decided she really didn't want to be an innkeeper and didn't know how to tell us. The personal hygiene issue had been addressed numerous times. As a result of that, and other issues, she is no longer with us. We do apologize... More
