The Jefferson Hotel


At a time when steamboats plied the Big Cypress River from New Orleans and true Southern gentility was the order of the day a stately structure, now known as the Jefferson Hotel, was built.  Once used as a warehouse to store cotton, this lovely building changed hands numerous times.  At the turn of the twentieth century it was transformed into a hotel and has served as a haven for weary travelers since that time.

As you walk down the hallways and peer into each room, you’ll get a sense of the comfort afforded Southern Belles and genteel men in days gone by.  Close your eyes and you’ll hear the rustle of long petticoats, the whistles of steamboats entering port, and riverboat gamblers trying their fortune.

Once known as the Crystal Palace in the 1920’s, ragtime music rang through these halls as couples swirled around the room.

Each room boasts its own theme and decor, all with antique furnishings.

Another addition to this lovely hotel are its local hauntings.  Many a guest has regaled the hotel staff with stories of sights and sounds heard and seen in the night.

Whatever your pleasure, be our guest and settle in for a journey through time when ‘the living was easy’ and the era was golden.
