The Jefferson, Texas inn was built in the style of a northern Louisiana plantation, a stunning combination of 21st-century comforts and 19th-century charm. The architectural style represents the antebellum heyday of Jefferson. The old and new come together to provide the optimum comfort with double-paned windows, interior sound-proofing insulation, electronic air cleaners, and zoned central air.
Named for the oldest mulberry tree in Jefferson and situated on more than an acre, Old Mulberry Inn and Cottages is just a few doors from the home where Lady Bird Johnson lived as a teenager. She may well have plucked mulberries from the century-old tree which dominates the inn’s park-like grounds. Our extensive landscaping and splendid roses earned Jefferson’s coveted “Garden of the Month” award. Pause long enough to smell our roses, pick mulberries, or just listen to the birds which populate our private “park.” Settle into a back porch rocker or the porch swing and let the gentle movement instill peace and calm in your soul.
If it’s too chilly outdoors, cuddle up on the leather sofa and watch the flames dance in the fireplace. All around you in the library are magazines, books, and a wealth of information about Jefferson’s colorful past. Or grab a movie, some cookies or snacks and retreat to your room. Take a nap before dinner. Arrange for a relaxing massage in the privacy of your room. Or venture out. Old Mulberry Inn and Cottages is just a short stroll from shopping, dining, museums, and other attractions.
If you are planning a family reunion and would like to book the entire inn & cottages, children are welcome.
