Precious Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This is my home town and my daughter and I were visiting family and I came across this small cottage. Very nice, small, and quaint. The owners have it well maintained, very clean, and well stocked with food and items you might have forgotten. Will be staying here again! Charming place.

Perfection!

Bessie's Landing was fantastic! It was more than we could have ever wanted. The accommodations were beautiful, comfortable and relaxing! Close to everything we wanted to see or do. The property is lush and private. It was an amazing weekend get away!

Great!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our visit! Such a comfortable cabin! Loved sitting on the front porch and listening to the water gurgling in the fish pond. Close walk into town. Elaine thought of everything in the cabin including food and drinks fully stocked. Just need your clothes and toothbrush!

This property has everything you want! Would love to give it a ten star if I could!

  • 5 of 5

Besides being in a perfect location to sites in Jefferson (ghost tours and boat tours) it was short trip to Caddo Lake were we went fishing and canoeing. The hosts of Bessies Landing were so helpful and both came over and checked to see if we needed anything (brought fresh fruit in the morning). I have never seen anything stocked - hostess knew what people want in their vacation travels! Will definitely make a trip back! Thanks so much!
