Another award for the Carriage House Bed & Breakfast in Jefferson, Texas

January 25th, 2011 by carriagehouse

You would not believe how excited we were here at the Carriage House to find out that we had won another award.  There were hoots and hollers all over the property when the phone call came in letting us know that we had won Lanier BB’s 2011 award for Best Overall Location. Woo Hoo the Crew!!!

We want to give a great big THANK YOU to all of our guests who voted for us and selected us out of a field of 8,500 Bed & Breakfasts for this award.  It means so much to us that our guests were the ones who nominated us and not an industry insider.  Tom and I are fulfilling our dreams of being Bed & Breakfast Innkeepers and we give all that we have each and every day to make our guests feel welcome and loved while they are here.  Thank you to all of our guest for loving us back!

In October, we were notified by TripAdvisor that we had received the 2010 Certificate of Excellence based on our positive reviews and overall score.  We have only been at this for a short time and, so for us to already be winning awards, it is just amazing to us.  Truthfully, we would have been happy to just be nominated.

Here is the official announcement:

Guests pick their 2011 “Best Overall Location” from over 8,500 B&B’s
