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.

Summer Fun

May 10th, 2010 by Skyla Grimes

Summer is almost upon us. Have you made your family vacation plans yet? Consider a trip to Jefferson for your summer family fun. No matter what you enjoy, you can find it here.

Jefferson is surrounded by water. This beautiful and historic antebellum town is built on the banks of the Big Cypress Bayou. The Turning Basin Bayou Tours offers riverboat tours daily during the summer. There is no better way to learn about the history of Jefferson or the Big Cypress Bayou then one of these boat tours. The bayou drains into Caddo Lake which is really more of a spanish moss covered cypress swamp than a traditional lake. You can take your family out on the Graceful Ghost steamboat tour and see alligators, birds, beaver, nutria and other exotic wildlife. For the fisherman, some of the best bass fishing in the state is at Lake o’ the Pines.

Maybe ghosts and the paranormal are more of your family’s idea of fun. Jefferson is haunted with many friendly spirits. In fact, it is considered to be the most haunted small town in Texas! The Grove, a private residence available for tour, is a certified haunted house. Not a hokey Halloween haunted house but a real ghostly home. On Friday and Saturday nights, you can take a walking ghost tour of the historic district and hear about all of the documented hauntings. If you and your family love ghost stories then the Historic Jefferson Railway after dark is where you need to be. The steam locomotive takes you through a scary 5 mile tour of the woods all the while scary ghost stories are being told

We are running some great summer specials. Our Memorial Day special is very special. If you stay Friday, Saturday, and Sunday night, we will give you $50 off your entire stay. If you can travel during the middle of the week and stay consecutive two nights, we will give you your 3rd night for free.

Stay Tuned. More about all of the fun things to do in my next posting. It is certainly “Jumpin in Jefferson”.
