If you are looking for a home away from home with comfortable beds, beautiful decor, and a wonderful porch swing to watch the world go by, this is THE place to stay in East Texas! Oh, and the breakfasts... Dave is a FABULOUS cook! The delicious FULL (and I mean FULL) breakfast is served promptly at 9 - a different gourmet MEAL every day. Finish the whole plate full and you can skip lunch and have an early dinner. Tammy and Dave made us feel like we were visiting family and we can hardly wait to go back to enjoy Jefferson at Christmas! White Oak Manor deserves more than 5 stars... it is truly the best B&B I've stayed at!

Sorry on my ratings. There is no spa - I clicked when I shouldn't have!

Room Tip: The room facing the back yard has a shower as well as a wonderful claw footed tub. The front facing room has a lovely little alcove, perfect for a nice glass of wine after a day of listening to music in Linden or a day full of shopping in Jefferson.

We'll keep the porch swing comfy for your trip back in December!

While my wife and are are not the typical bed and breakfast patrons, we opted for a visit to the White Oak manor because of a good price and the fear of some of the reviews of other locations in town. It was a great experience and made so because of the hosts. I truly felt like their guest. We were able to check in early, given good recommendations for things to do in town, and given just the little bit of time we spent talking to the hosts had the impression that they were truly people who were out to become part of the community and not just take from it. We had a great time on a ghost tour that night and had an excellent breakfast the next morning. All in all, it was everything that we needed to have a nice time.

Room Tip: We had heard stories about train noise being a problem - they even offered us ear plugs if we were light sleepers, which I am. White Oak Manor seemed to be far enough away that it wasn't a problem.

We spent our first night at a bed and breakfast at White Oak Manor in Jefferson, Tx.
When I called to see if they had any vacancies for that evening, Tammy was very accomodating. She held the room for us with no credit card number, etc., just a phone number. We were going to pay on arrival and check in later but when we arrived the room was ready and we were welcomed right in though it was before noon. (We chose this location because of the reviews we had read and an early week special that was advertised on Tripadvisor.) Our room was upstairs, as are the others. We had a comfy queen bed and the furnishings were antique, I believe. The room and everything in it was spotless. The bathroom had a deep clawfoot tub (but also had a shower attachment.) There is a beautiful stained glass window in the bath area. They provide a selection of DVDs and popcorn and microwave on the landing between the rooms as well as some other extras. There is a nice coffemaker provided in your room as well. There is a step down seating area overlooking the front area of the house and the huge oak tree. (You can view your car from there as well.)
There are two cozy living areas downstairs, one as you enter the front door and one beside the dining area. We enjoyed sitting out on the large porch area (complete with porch swing.)
Now let me tell you, the breakfast was amazing! Veggie omelet, bacon, home made cherry scones with honey butter, coffee and orange juice. The breakfast alone would have cost a pretty penny elsewhere!
The little town of Jefferson is loaded with history, antique shops, and a few unique eating establishments. We had dinner at Auntie Skinner's. It is what I would imagine a saloon to look like. Smoking is allowed so we sat near the front door and didn't notice that at all. My husband had "Auntie Skinner's chicken dinner" and I had a small salad and the quesadilla with shrimp and grilled peppers. The salad was rather plain but all else we had was delicious.We thoroughly enjoyed our little get-away. Our thanks to Dave and Tammy at White Oak Manor. Their hospitality was everything I could imagine it should be. I highly recommend their establishment if you are considering a bed and breakfast in the Jefferson area.

Room Tip: I think any of their rooms would be lovely. Just be aware they are upstairs but that was not a problem at all for us.

The owners were extremely hospitable, rooms were extremely clean and the breakfast was excellent. We felt like we were staying with good friends. A very quiet and relaxing atmosphere. We enjoyed our stay so much we decided to stay another night. We will return very soon and you can assure yourself that we will stay at White Oak Manor Bed & Breaskfast!

Room Tip: Southern Charm has a king size bed and the bed was very comfortable.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at White Oak Manor in Jefferson, Texas. We were guests in the White Oak Room (Judge'sChamber) overlooking the massive white oak in the front yard. There is a lovely veranda to sit on outside, with chairs, porch swing, etc.
Our room was incredibly spacious, with an entire separate sitting area, which we found very comfortable. The bathroom is also huge. There is a claw foot tub, which has been outfitted with a shower. My husband found the shower very difficult since the curtain had to be placed into the tub in a way that restricted his movement.
The entire White Oak Manor is immaculately clean and tastefully decorated. Our bed was extremely comfortable. David and Tammy are great hosts!
We enjoyed a very hearty breakfast in the morning. It is served at 9:00 AM (or so). If you need to get on the road, this may be a little later than you would like to be getting started.
Jefferson is hoe to MANY bed and breakfasts. This one, recently taken over by Dave and Tammy, is a hidden gem! If you look for their website, be sure it is the current one with them as owners.

Room Tip: I think the White Oak Suite will meet anyone's needs for a great night's stay.

Thank you for your kind words. We will try to find a way to make the shower in the room more comfortable.
We are always happy to accommodate early breakfast if we know you need to leave earlier. We apologize for any miscommunication on our part.
