While in town this past weekend, we wandered into the lobby to see this very beautiful and historic hotel. The staff were so gracious and friendly. Both Christina and Ellie showed us around and told us about the history of the hotel as we had missed the regular tour. I fell in love and can't wait to come back to Jefferson to stay here. We actually stayed in Bed and breakfasts this trip and I had no idea there was an historic hotel to choose from. The decor and furnishings were so genuine and beautiful The Ladies Garden club should be very proud. I was told they have a special for sunday through Thursday to stay any room for 89.00. I think this is a good deal indeed after seeing one of the rooms. I also heard about the delicious orange blossom muffins all over town so I can't wait to go back and stay here.
