The Benefield House Bed & Breakfast has three common rooms where guests may gather, all exquisitely decorated in the style of the 1890′s Victorian Era, yet very cozy. So please, come in…make yourself at home!
The Drawing Room was the most lavish room in the Victorian house. The Benefield House is a Recorded Texas Historic Landmark and the marker states that the Drawing Room held many social affairs when Jefferson was a leading port in Texas. It is that atmosphere that we recreate with bold colors of red and gold floral wallpaper. The chandelier and silk drapes are original to the house. Feel free to use the writing desk and our complimentary stationary and cards.
The Back Parlor is a masculine example of Victorian living with dark green wallpaper, walnut stained bead-board, a fireplace with large mirrored mantle, and three stained glass windows. There is an antique Pump Organ that, although modified through the years, still plays for anyone ambitious enough to try! Sit and read a book, play a board game, or do a puzzle. This room is so comfortable you may just want to sit there and do nothing.
The Dining Room boasts a gorgeous antique chandelier and mahogany table with gold inlay and matching chairs, sideboard, and china cabinet. The china cabinet is filled with a unique collection of hammered aluminum. There is also a beautiful display of antique fans from the many travels of Donna’s grandparents, from Sicily to Vegas. This sunny room is the perfect setting for your four course gourmet breakfast.
Sit and relax on the front porch or side deck and overlook the lush green grounds and listen to the birds serenade you as you watch the world go by. Stroll our spacious and well-manicured gardens, or just sit on the porch and enjoy the peaceful calm that you’ve been in need of
