“Fantastic, Quiet home with a fantastic breakfast!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2012

My wife and I spent a couple of nights at the White Oak Manor. We'd never stayed in a B&B and this was a great, first experience. Dave and Tammy are great hosts. The room was very nice. The manor is a short walk to restaurants, antique shops, etc., but far enough from the train tracks for quiet evenings. We will definitely stay here, next time we head to Jefferson.

This our very first stay at a B&B so we really didn`t know what to expect! I can honestly say it was great, from Dave & Tammy`s hospitality to the awesome breakfast they prepared the whole stay was perfect!! Will definitely be back !!!

Room Tip: front room has great view of giant White Oak tree and you have some distance from other two rooms

This was our second trip to Jefferson, and our second time to stay in a B & B there. This trip was truly the better of the two - thanks to Dave & Tammy's hospitality and their lovely home. It was a relaxing weekend with great conversation between us, Dave & Tammy, and the other guests (and great breakfasts!). If we decide to come for the 3rd annual Big Cypress Corvette Show next year, we already know where we will be staying! Thanks to you both for a great weekend!

We came with friends for a birthday get-away. This was our first stay at White Oak Manor and it will not be our last! We enjoyed everything about this beautiful B&B. If you have read Linda G's review there is not much we can add. The breakfast are outstanding. Sunday morning Dave & Tammy prepared German Puff Pancake - I am in LOVE!!! He did slip me the recipe! Totally recommend a visit to this beautiful B&B and to the town of Jefferson. We stayed in the Mardi Gras room and slept like babies...cold a/c and comfy quilts made for a great sleep.
PS: There really is a white oak in the front yard estimated to be 300 years old.

Room Tip: If you are a very light sleeper the nightly train runs thru Jefferson may not be to your liking - di...

Our stay with Dave and Tammy was one of the most pleasant we've had at a bed and breakfast anywhere. Some of the reasons include:
1. Warmth of the host and hostess: We were immediately drawn in by their personalities. They enjoy people, their business, Jefferson, each other, and life in general. They are interesting and helpful, to boot!
2. Beautiful architecture: Each of the three rooms contains its own unique details. Ours, Southern Charm, had a private balcony overlooking the back yard, as well as two stained glass windows over the king bed. All of the rooms have beautiful woodwork, original wood floors, gas fireplaces, and special nooks.
3. Appointments beyond compare: Guests have access to a microwave and popcorn in the upstairs hallway, as well as a stocked (soft drinks, water) refrigerator. In addition, there is a selection of teas and hot chocolate. There are more DVDs than I cared to count, and they run the gamut from action to thriller to romantic to comedy. Don't forget the never-empty basket of chocolate in the entryway!
Individual rooms contain: Keurig coffee makers, with an assortment of coffees; room-size refrigerators where the cream for your coffee is kept; his and her bathrobes; fresh flowers; a flat screen TV; a gas fireplace; iron and board; a claw foot tub; hair dryer; personalized soaps, bath crystals, plastic bags for dirty clothes... And if you forget anything, just ask!
4. Breakfast feasts: There aren't enough superlatives that can do Dave's breakfasts justice. On our first morning, we were served eggs benedict with hashbrowns, and a fruit and yogurt dish. Truly, this was the equivalent of any Food Network masterpiece! On the second morning, we were served Belgian waffles with a warm blueberry mixture, eggs, bacon, and a yummy fruit smoothie. (Because I mentioned on Day 1 how much I enjoyed blueberries, presto, they appeared in an oh-so-delectable way on Day 2!) And I concur with the other reviewers who said that you do not need to eat for the rest of the day after these breakfasts. Buy a piece of fruit for dinner, and you'll be fine!
5. Responsiveness: Dave and Tammy go out of their way to serve, to help, to answer questions... They pay attention to the little things, making the guests feel so very special.
6. Cleanliness: I think this should come with the territory, but it doesn't all of the time, so please know that everything is spotless here. This is a Victorian home, with lots of crevices, windows, high ceilings... This B&B contains all of the places where dust likes to collect, but it has no dust! Even the ornate mirror in the bathroom was totally clean and all of the windows sparkled! Everything looked clean and smelled clean because it was clean!

If you are wondering at which B&B to stay out of the many in Jefferson, wonder no more! The White Oak Manor will not disappoint.

Room Tip: Southern Charm has the king bed. The other two rooms have queen beds, but each has its own unique qu...

We were invited by our friends to attend the civil war reenactment recently held on May 4-6, 2012 in Jefferson TX. This was my first time staying at a B&B and all I can say is that it was one of the most memorable experiences I have ever had. We went on the historical home tour and I was impressed more with the White Oak Manor then any of the homes on the tour. David and Tammy go all the way in making your stay comfortable and enjoyable. They provide better service then many of the hotels we have stayed in. The breakfast was incredible. I will definitely return and recommend this B&B to everyone.

Room Tip: All the rooms are excellent.

This was our first time staying in a B & B. To begin with the home is situated in a lovely neighborhood within walking distance to town. Inn keepers, David and Tammy know how to make their guests feel welcome in their charming Victorian home. They have provided everything a guest could want. The rooms are beautiful and ever so comfortable. The breakfasts are superb. Resident pups Utah and Bella add to the charm of this special place. I have a feeling this B & B is going to make all others pale in comparison.

Room Tip: All rooms are equal in size and amenities. Book early if you want a king-sized bed as there is only...
