World Wetland Day Observed in Jefferson

January 26th, 2014 by carriagehouse

In observance of World Wetland Day, Port Jefferson History & Nature Center invites the public to participate in the planting of native wetland trees to benefit the new riverfront park and the City of Jefferson.

The event will start at 10 AM on Saturday, February 1, at the entrance to the east end of the park across from the Jefferson Transportation and Visitor Center.  After planting is completed in the park, participants will be able to acquire a limited number of trees for their own properties.

Participants should dress appropriately for the weather and bring flat edged shovels to use as “Dibble bars” in the planting process.

Trees to be planted include bare root bald cypress and water tupelo.Caddo Lake

The theme for World Wetland Day 2014 is wetlands and agriculture.  Wetlands provide natural infrastructure to support agriculture, providing reliable water and fertile soils.  There is a great need for wetland and agricultural sectors to work together for the best shared outcomes.

Perfect Time of Year to See the Critters

April 10th, 2013 by carriagehouse

Alligator at Caddo Lake

One of the questions we often get is “When is the best time of year to see the wildlife on Caddo Lake?”  The answer is right now.  In fact both Spring and Fall are the best times of year to see the wildlife on Caddo Lake.

When the nights are cool and the days are warm, the gators, turtles and other critters are pulling themselves out of the water to warm themselves.  You can often see them laying on the beaches and felled trees sunning themselves.  The handsome gentleman in the picture is a well known local named “Fraidy Cat”.

The birds are changing out season right now as well. The Winter birds are flying north again and the Summer birds are just arriving.  In early spring, many of the animals are waking up from their long winter naps and are hungry and frisky.  It is a busy active time in the swamps of Caddo Lake!!

If you are interested in getting up and close with nature, just give us a call at 903-655-9511.  We can suggest several different types of tours on Caddo Lake.  One is sure to be just the adventure you are seeking.

 

Spring Break Bookings Going Fast

February 19th, 2013 by carriagehouse

Piney Woods Wine Trail

If you have not done so yet, you need to book your room for Spring Break soon.  Our rooms are going fast and you do not want to miss out on all of the fun things going on in Jefferson and Caddo Lake this Spring.

All of the boat tours and train rides will be ramping back up the first weekend of Spring Break after being closed for inspections and repairs during the Winter season.  Ten new paddling trails were recently opened by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department on both Caddo Lake and the Big Cypress Bayou.  If you are looking for something more low-key, then visit one of our local wineries and sit back and enjoy some East Texas sweet wine and dine at some of the best restaurants that East Texas has to offer.

The Carriage House is located in downtown Jefferson, Texas and is walking distance from all of the shops, tours and restaurants.  In fact we are so close to all of the shopping, that we are between two antique stores! We are also the only pet-friendly bed and breakfast in Jefferson. So bring your best buddy for a $50 non-refundable pet fee and feel completely at home.

I would love to tell you more about what this beautiful area has to offer.  Please call me at 903-665-9511 if you need any assistance with planning your trip or would like to hear more about some of the tours and activities in the Jefferson/ Caddo Lake area.

New Kayak and Canoe Paddling Trails

January 29th, 2013 by carriagehouse

Paddling Trails

The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department has opened ten new kayak and canoe paddling trails on the Big Cypress Bayou and Caddo Lake. Trail markers have been placed along all of these trails to help you navigate these mystical and ethereal waterways.

Five of the new trails follow the Big Cypress Bayou with the put ins and take outs located at Backwater Jack’s RV park.  The other five paddling trails are on Caddo Lake with the put ins and take outs located at various locations on the lake

For more information, please visit the Texas Parks and Wildlife Website.

 

Video of Haunting and Mysterious Caddo Lake

January 5th, 2012 by carriagehouse

So the video creating kick is still going on here at The Carriage House Bed and Breakfast.  Yesterday I created a video of the New Year’s Eve Ball at Jefferson’s Carnegie Library.  Today, I spent all morning working on a video showcasing the beautiful and ethereal Caddo Lake.    I hope y’all enjoy all of the amazing photography!!

You are cordially invited to the 2011 Fall Photography Weekend at the Carriage House Bed and Breakfast in charming Jefferson, Texas. Come spend a glorious autumn weekendwhere the focus is on photography, fun and fellowship.

This historic steamboat riverport town is a target rich photo environment with opportunities for a one of a kind “money shot” around every corner.

For info or reservations, please call us at 903-665-9511

Caddo Lake is the most photographed lake in Texas. With its dripping spanish moss and swamp like environment, you will capture many unique and interesting images. Caddo Lake is a birders paradise and is home to alligators, turtles, beavers, nutria, and many other water loving critters.
Since a trip to a Southern town is not complete without a visit to an antebellum home you will have the opportunity to tour and photograph some of the most beautiful houses and gardens in Jefferson. In fact, several of the homeowners will greet you in traditional Victorian period dress.  How’s that for a photo opp?
