The Claiborne House Bed & Breakfast in Jefferson, Texas, features elegance, comfort, gourmet breakfasts, designer coffees, and offers perhaps the most elegant and beautiful interior lodging space in the region. For a romantic B&B retreat into the mid-1800s, step back in time to the age of steamships in the inland water port of Jefferson, Texas.
The Claiborne House Bed and Breakfast is furnished with antiques. All guestrooms have private baths with whirlpool tubs, showers or shower/tubs, color televisions and ceiling fans. Beds feature luxurious Simmons Beauty Rest mattresses. For those who cannot abandon the 21st Century, we offer free wireless internet access.
Tastefully decorated and beautifully furnished common rooms afford pleasant places to sit and visit as one might have done a century ago when Captain & Mrs. Claiborne entertained.
A full Southern gourmet breakfast is served with crystal and china in the dining room at The Claiborne House. A typical breakfast starts with blackberry soup followed by Spanish baked eggs, roasted potatoes, sausage, fresh fruit, angel biscuits and cinnamon bites. Gourmet coffee and juice are also served.
We take pride in maintaining a place where you can enjoy a quiet, elegant ambiance, therefore, we have made the difficult decision that we cannot accept children or pets. We believe that this decision allows us to pay more attention to details that contribute to our guests' comfort and enjoyment.
The Claiborne House B&B features 40 foot porches on two sides of the main building, a covered entry porch and a spacious rear porch off the kitchen, a great spot for coffee or tea. Original moldings, heart pine floors and thirteen-foot ceilings give the house its gracious character. There are six graciously-sized guestrooms, four in the main house and two in the new Carriage House.
The main building at Claiborne House Bed & Breakfast was built as a single family home between 1862 and 1866. It was purchased by Capt. V. H. Claiborne in 1871. A modified Greek Revival design with a front gabled roof.
Come and relax on one of our 4 porches, as you might have a century ago, on wicker furniture or old-fashioned wood rockers or that Victorian standard porch swing. Take your pick! The comfort is endless and out hospitality is waiting.
