“Romance is in the air.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2012

My bride of 32 years and I love the cozyness of the Carriage House B&B. We steal away from the hustle and bustle of the city grind to go out to Jefferson and relax. The rooms are great, the breakfast is very tasty, and the folks we meet at the breakfast table are always a joy. The location of the B&B is within a very short walking distance to the historic, dining, and shopping parts of Jefferson we love. Tom and Stephanie do a grand job and always make us feel at home. We are a repeat customer.

Stephanie and Tom Lester made our stay at the Carriage House very special.
My wife and I looked at several other places in Jefferson, but we're really glad that
we chose the Carriage House with the private cottages next door to the main house,
excellent gourmet breakfast in the dining room and many other reasons. The Carriage house
has nice rocking chairs on the wrap around porch, soft drinks and coffee/tea available
anytime, a nice patio and fire pit ideal for a nice glass of wine. Jefferson is very
clost to two nice vineyards (Enoch's Stomp and Los Pinos Vineyard). My wife and I have
been visiting Jefferson (from Dallas) for over 25 years and usually also enjoy stopping
for catfish at Big Pines restaurant in Uncertain, Tx near Caddo Lake.

Want comfort, good food, good company and the best place to stay in Jefferson, TX? The Carriage House is it!!!! Stephanie and Tom have made the Carriage House "A Home Away From Home". Walking distance to everything you would/could want. Friendly and inviting. Just wouldn't stay anywhere else. 10 Stars plus.

Room Tip: Each room is unique in itself. From queen, king and double beds. Comfortable, clean and relaxing.

We were in Jefferson for the Girlfriend Weekend which is a trip in itself. Stephanie and Tom are fantastic hosts. Delicious gourmet breakfasts. Loved the slide show which Stephanie updated the last day of our stay with slides from Kathy Patrick's Beauty and the Book Girlfriend Weekend. My husband and I will definitely return to the Carriage House.

If you're looking for a cozy place to stay while visiting Jefferson, don't miss the Carriage House B & B. Tom & Stephanie will make you feel right at home and the breakfasts are outstanding. The best rooms are in the cottage in back away from the main house. A little quieter and away from the action. Downtown is a short walk away and offers great shopping.

Room Tip: Rooms in the back are quieter

My wife and I recently stayed at the Carriage House B&B while in the area. We were greeted by owner Stephanie Lester upon arrival and given a tour of the property, then shown to our room, located across the courtyard from the main house with it's own entrance, the Allen Urqhart, which we found to be very clean with a comfortable bed and a welcoming plate of homemade cookies. As requested, a pot of decaf coffee was waiting for us the next morning on the table in the courtyard just outside our door. Prepared by owner Tom Lester, breakfast the first morning consisted of coffee, juice and a generous serving of Southwest Eggs Benedict, delicious. Second morning we had Mama Ronchi"s Mafia Scramble, also very good. Taking the quality of the breakfasts and personal service into consideration, a stay here represents a very good value. It is also within easy walking distance of Jefferson's downtown shopping and attractions.
