We did our annual "Girl's Weekend" here this weekend!!  It was fabulous.  Valerie was so sweet and accommodating in every way!  The food was amazing - ALL OF IT!  Two favorites were the blueberry bread & the apple bread with pecan sauce.  Our rooms were equipped with everything we could possibly need and the bed was great!!  The gardens/grounds were gorgeous.  The only issue I had was the shower in our room didn't have good water pressure and it didn't stay hot.  She will serve you breakfast in your room. Thank you for a great time!!

Awesome weekend! Beautiful home. We had the whole house to ourselves. Fabulous breakfast casseroles,fruit,quiche and apple bread with pecan praline sauce. Valerie gives a TON of food!!! All wonderful!! Very comfortable rooms and delightful hostess and host. The Gardens are outrageously gorgeous! Convenient parking. Jefferson has great antique shopping and small eclectic stores. Lots of restaurants in town. Only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is the living room has old fashioned furniture that is not comfortable. Rooms are excellent.

My wife and I decided to leave busy Dallas for a long weekend in East TX in a little town called Jefferson.  Neither of us had been there, but it was suggested to us by a few friends so we went online and researched the town, Chamber of Commerce, etc.  We then started searching for accomodations.

It quickly became apparent that most accomodations came in the form of B&B's, but which one?  There are dozens of B&B's in Jefferson, each with their 5 stars on travel sites.  After reading several - we decided on The Azalea Inn.

We booked our reservations online and arrived on Thu June 12.  We were greeted warmly by the proprietor Valerie who gave us a tour and history of the Inn.  We were showed to our room which was one of three that they offer.  It was called the "Perry" room after a famous Texas Ranger named Rufus Perry who was a great great grandfather of Valerie's husband Sam.

The home and our room was wonderfully appointed with artifacts from the 1800's.  The home was restored in 2007.  It has a beautiful courtyard and gardens where we took our coffee each morning to fountains and birds chirping.  Simply wonderful and relaxing.

Now many of the B&B's in Jeffererson are going to have history, or even an historical designation from the state.  They'll be beautiful and you may be happy with them.  What distinguished the Azalea Inn for me was the individual touches and super clean accomodations.  With only three rooms, there's only a maximum of three couples/six people staying at one time.

My wife and I didn't have to mingle with others if we didn't want to.  It was like we had the home to ourselves.  We had homemade candies/chocolates delivered to our room upon arrival.  We were served a gourmet breakfast each morning in the comfort of our room.  We didn't have to congregate with all other guests around a large dining table between 7-8am for breakfast eating with 16 strangers like at some larger B&Bs.

Our breakfasts were over-the-top gourmet.  One morning we were were served sausage, ham frittata, hot hash brown casserole, apple-cinnamon muffins, watermelon, cantelope, a slice of chocolate bread w/ blueberry compote and more.  The meals were served on gorgeous dishes and ramekins and served super hot.  The pitcher of OJ was super cold.  Coffee was provided in the room which we could make when we woke up.  The silverware was heavy and the napkins - well - I was afraid to wipe my mouth with them!  Very nice.

If I'm going to give you a real and honest review, which I'd appreciate if I were reading your review - I'd tell you that yes, I had a couple things that I'd change - 1st - hot water.  I must've showered at the exact same time that the other guests showered b/c I didn't have very much hot water on any of the three mornings of my stay.  3-4 min max.  My wife didn't have a problem though - she had plenty everytime and no, I didn't shower after her each day.

2nd - Pilllows. We could've used a second sleeping pillow, I woke up first morning with crick in my neck. The bed is beautiful with numerous decorative pillows, but the sleeping pillows were just one per person.

About an hour or 90 minutes after breakfast on our last morning - Valerie came back to our room to ask us about our stay and swiped our credit card on her iPad.  Very easy checkout.  We thanked her and even bought a cookbook that she published with her great recipes.

Go online and book a couple of nights at The Azalea Inn - you won't regret it!

Great place. Clean, friendly and wow what a breakfast. I love that you have a choice when she will serve you breakfast. My husband and I prefer an earlier breakfast then most B & B's serve and we could have that. Stayed April 2014 and have reservations to come visit again.
