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! Way more than I expected. The only thing that I was uncomfortable with was the inn keeper. She didn't seem very happy, which brought... More

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

We had a wonderful time and plan to come back again! The B/B is very charming and the service we received was excellent. We are telling all our friends to make sure and put this one on their places to go list. The only wrinkle was a group of guests who were extremely obnoxious. They didn't like the flowers, various...

My husband, daughter and son-in-law stayed here this past weekend and thoroughly enjoyed it. We stayed in the Sunday House which is behind the main house and has two bedrooms. The room we stayed in was very rustic, with antiques everywhere. Both have fireplaces. My daughter said the bed in their room was so comfortable! We sat on the porch... More

We love this place and look forward to going back in the future. Great clean room, super extras, wonderful innkeepers, yummy breakfast, good location, easy parking, etc. We stayed upstairs last summer and downstairs this summer. Hugh is fun to talk to and he knows all the history of the area. Did not talk to his wife as much, but... More

My husband and I just spent a fantastic weekend at the McKay House. I could not have been more delighted. We rented the Sunday House Cottage in the back of the B&B because we travel with our fur babies. The cottage was precious! From quaint antique furniture to a front porch swing, it was all there. We were comfy cozy.... More
