Thank you Lisa (& Greg) for a great two nights at Jefferson House. The room was so comfortable and breakfast each morning was delicious. The position of your home really is amazing looking over the river, and only a 5 minute walk to the centre of town. We won't hesitate to recommend!

The location and the accommodations are just fabulous! Greg & Lisa Salter, the new owner innkeepers are like reuniting with long-term friends! Their gardens on the river are quite possibly the most peaceful and beautiful place to sit and just soak it all in. And their breakfasts are perfectly prepared with farm fresh eggs, homemade preserves (peach & fig, and...

I really don't know where to start, from the first phone call to ask questions it felt right. You can't say which of the host is the nicest because they both are so warm and genuine. The place is very clean I just can't imagine how they do it all. I truly believe Arlene loves cooking breakfast for her guest,...

Jefferson House is the pefect place for Natchitoches. Beautiful, quiet, a few minutes' walk to the town center. Herman had to take care of us on his own and he managed very well. He made us feel very welcome

My partner & I stayed at Jefferson House during our 17 night road trip of Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi. Firstly, we were enchanted by Natchitoches.....what a beautifully preserved example of Colonial history. Now back to JH....Arleen & Herman have created a wonderful environment in which to relax and unwind. The house is situated in the Historic district and has a...

We decided to stop overnight at a B&B on our way to Dallas. Because of all the good reviews and the fact that they were pet friendly, we chose The Jefferson House. We are so glad we did. Arleen and Herman welcomed us and our puppy as if we were old friends. The room was very comfortable and clean, and...

We recently decided to stay in Natchitoches at a B&B on our way to New Orleans and chose Jefferson House. As I like to say, We chose wisely! Wonderful large room.

The B&B was a three level home on the Cane River across from historic distance. It is now an apartment on each level. The apartment we had was on top (actually street level). Best for people with mobility issues. Breakfast is in room pastries, coffee and cereal. You can walk across bridge to downtown. Probably best for adults.

The review of January 7 posted by Ron D of Austin was written about Andre's River View Inn, not Jefferson House B&B. No such person was a guest at Jefferson House in recent weeks, and the inn he describes (three levels, across a bridge from the historic district) can only be Andre's. Jefferson House has two levels and is on...
