“Great Care at the Carriage House”
Reviewed 31 December 2012

What a wonderful visit to the Carriage House! Tom Lester was an awesome host and truly went out of his way to make our experience a memorable one. Tom's attention to detail made it feel as if we were home for the holidays. Upon our arrival in the evening, we cracked and ate pecans around the firepit while Tom and our group exchanged hilarious holiday stories and enjoyed festive libations. Tom even allowed us to utilize the Carriage House's Christmas tree to have a Dirty Santa exchange that evening and accomodated us in every way well into the evening. Sadly, we had to be on the road early the next day, but Tom prepared a delicious breakfast to send us on our way with full bellies and happy hearts. A++++++++++ visit!

After staying at The Carriage House for my second time now, this place remains my top favorite bed and breakfast! Staff is kind and welcoming, and the amenities top all other places where I've stayed. Keep up the good work, Tom and Stephanie!! I'll be back soon!

The evening began sitting around the open fire place, cracking and eating fresh pecans supplied from the trees around us. We sipped on warm Gluug, (kind of a spiced wine) and enjoyed visiting in the chilly air. Later we moved inside, where we were surrounded by an army of wooden nutcracker soldiers and an array of Santas from every land. It was such a cozy, warm, Christmas atmosphere for our family to meet in.
We were entertained by reading "The Night Before Christmas--Cajun Style" but had to enlist the help of our fun & gracious host, Tom, for some help with pronunciations. We woke to snow flurries and the smell of a delicous homemade breakfast with fresh orange juice. It was the perfect start as we continued on our holiday journey. Carriage House--you never disappoint!! Thank you!! HO HO HO

Tom was a wonderful host. He gave us a good history and was very knowledgeable about the area. The house was filled with beautiful antiques and Christmas decorations. The breakfast was delicious. Jefferson is a very interesting town.

I loved staying at the Carriage House. Stephanie is an amazing hostess. She is there when you need her, but also allows for privacy if that is what you are wanting. The first night, waiting in our room upon arrival, was a delicious slice of peppermint cake for each of us - very sweet and welcoming. One morning we had breakfast with the other guests, and the next, we opted for breakfast in bed. How great is that? The spinach/artichoke bread pudding was to die for! This was my first time to stay at a B&B, and I was not really sure what to expect. The bed was comfortable, wine glasses and a corkscrew were provided, coffee was always available, and we could walk anywhere downtown we wanted since the Carriage House is so conveniently located. The experience was great, and definitly one I would repeat again without question.

We stayed at the Carriage House B&B the weekend before Thanksgiving. It was so peaceful. We were traveling with a work colleague and Stephanie had recommended that we stay in the two rooms in the house. It was perfect! We could sit in the parlor and visit. The breakfasts were amazing! We will certainly be back!

My wife and I enjoyed the Christmas Candlelight festival and stayed at Tom and Stephanie's Carriage house B&B in Jefferson, Texas. We stayed in the Diamond Bessie room and thoroughly enjoyed the king bed and location near downtown Jefferson. Tom (and Crystal) did a great job with breakfast each morning. The weather was really nice (70 degrees) for the Candlelight festival and we enjoyed dinner at the Stillwater Inn and new Memories and Music restaurant. (see reviews) I highly recommend the Carriage House B&B due to the location and Tom and Stephanie's great breakfast and service. Thanks Tom for the glass of wine for our 27th anniversary!
