We were two couples and all four agreed this was a truly outstanding B&B. It is located close to downtown - about a third to half a mile but could be walked. Parking was sufficient and off street. Our hosts, Lisa and Greg, were friendly and attentive. They were outstanding and really made our stay wonderful. The rooms were very... More

We stayed several times at the Jefferson House before the previous owners retired. We came back again for a Civil War battle at the nearby fort, and we were extremely pleased with the new owners. They are very friendly and make you feel welcome into their home. The house has a great location, within walking distance to pretty much everything.... More

Great B&B. The owners are great and the breakfast was great. The room was very nice and comfortable. Had a great time. Within walking distance of everything. Right across from the "Steele Magnolias" house. That's neat.

The Jefferson House is the best B&B I have ever stayed in my entire life, and I highly recommend them with no hesitation. When in Natchitoches, this is the only B&B or hotel I will stay in from now on. The owners, Greg & Lisa are extremely warm and caring, the courtyard is stunning, the views of the river are... More

Thank you Lisa (& Greg) for a great two nights at Jefferson House. The room was so comfortable and breakfast each morning was delicious. The position of your home really is amazing looking over the river, and only a 5 minute walk to the centre of town. We won't hesitate to recommend!

The location and the accommodations are just fabulous! Greg & Lisa Salter, the new owner innkeepers are like reuniting with long-term friends! Their gardens on the river are quite possibly the most peaceful and beautiful place to sit and just soak it all in. And their breakfasts are perfectly prepared with farm fresh eggs, homemade preserves (peach & fig, and... More

I really don't know where to start, from the first phone call to ask questions it felt right. You can't say which of the host is the nicest because they both are so warm and genuine. The place is very clean I just can't imagine how they do it all. I truly believe Arlene loves cooking breakfast for her guest,... More

Jefferson House is the pefect place for Natchitoches. Beautiful, quiet, a few minutes' walk to the town center. Herman had to take care of us on his own and he managed very well. He made us feel very welcome

My partner & I stayed at Jefferson House during our 17 night road trip of Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi. Firstly, we were enchanted by Natchitoches.....what a beautifully preserved example of Colonial history. Now back to JH....Arleen & Herman have created a wonderful environment in which to relax and unwind. The house is situated in the Historic district and has a... More
