The room is clean, spacious and prettily furnished, and the en-suite is the same. It's a self-contained suite with locking door. The large bed was comfortable, and there was a coffee machine, cold water in a mini-fridge, etc. I was able to book instantly and the welcome was friendly. In all, excellent. Jefferson is, to my tourist eyes, a classic picturesque US small town, and I enjoyed an evening stroll down main street. Excellent breakfasts are available nearby. It also has a Heartbreak Hotel, but maybe that's only for broken-hearted lovers....

We were in town for a wedding, but since there weren't any hotels nearby we looked to Airbnb. Lesley was such a great and responsive host! The area has a tough time with cell reception so the wifi was especially helpful. The Inn's proximity to The Breakfast Club is such a huge bonus! I would recommend Lesley and this place to anyone interested in visiting the area.

My boyfriend and I stayed here to attend a wedding at a nearby farm. The location was excellent as it was only 10 minutes away from the venue (Blenheim Hill Farm). The room was comfortable and clean. The bed was great, nice sized bathroom, and the water and coffee provided was a nice touch. We went to a bar down the street called The Heartbreak hotel that was fun if you're a night owl like we are. Also the Breakfast Club next door to that was absolutely incredible. We had a great stay and even got to watch a meteor shower from their lovely courtyard.

Wow! I hope one day we will be able to go back to Jefferson and spend a little more time around the town. Lesley's home was amazing and very comfortable. I felt like I was in a five star hotel and it was a treasure to stay in! If we never get to go back I will be very sad. Lesley had great communication with us and even let us borrow a few fold up chairs since we were going to Cooperstown for the hall of fame induction! We wish we had more time with Lesley and Bob. Enjoy your time when you are there, we had a wonderful time ❤️

What a pleasure! Lesley was easy to communicate with both before and during my stay. The accommodations were exactly as described, if not better! Everything you would need was provided and the space was well kept and clean. If I return to the area in the future, I will definitely be booking here again.

Lesley and her family are great hosts. They were always available to offer suggestions on where to go and what to do. We stayed with them for a wedding and the location was perfect for that. A little heads up, cell service and internet are pretty much non existent in Jefferson. Luckily, Lesley's place had both!!!! If you are looking to stay in the area I would definitely consider this place! Thank you Lesley!
