We just got back from a wonderful weekend at the Culberson House B&B in Jefferson. We went there for the Holiday Candlelight Tour of Homes. The Culberson House was one of four homes on the tour and we were lucky to be able to stay there while the tour was going. The Culberson is a beautiful old antebellum house with very gracious hosts, Hollis and Tamara Campbell. But for the tour it was spectacular beyond description. The best way to describe it is to take the review by pjeDallas and add the magic of Christmas. Three hours from Dallas, it was a great way to spend a weekend and enjoy the spirit of the season.
One small caveat; it's only about a block from the railroad tracks and lots of trains run through at night, but we always travel with a noise machine and were pretty well able to block out the train whistles.
As an adjunct to the weekend we took the short 15 mi. ride to Marshall to take in their holiday lights display, which is well worth seeing.
