Welcome to Our Jefferson, Texas Bed and Breakfast
Your innkeepers, David and Tammy Doriot, relocated to Jefferson, TX when they bought the White Oak Manor bed and breakfast in June of 2011. While searching the country for the perfect small town to call home, Jefferson charmed them and was just what they had been looking for.
During the eight years prior to arriving in Jefferson, the Doriots honed their innkeeping experience by acting as operating managers of three unique places. The first was a family hotel with a small breakfast cafe, they then moved to a large bed and breakfast serving dinners three nights a week. Both of these Inns were in the small coastal town of Westport, Ca.
The Doriots then moved to a bed and breakfast across the country in the East coastal town of Carolina Beach, NC to run the inn.
A favorite part of traveling for the Doriots is staying in unique inns and bed and breakfasts. Due to their extensive experience as inn guests, they understand bed and breakfasts from the guests’ point of view. This has helped them perfect their hosting skills. Their goal is to pamper you from the minute you arrive, ensuring your stay is only the best.
Life Before our East Texas Lodging
Before becoming innkeepers, David worked for an International Drilling Co., and Tammy worked from home while raising their daughter. During those years, David traveled from town to town in most of the western states. One day Tammy decided to join him on the road. They sold their house and moved into a large travel trailer, so that they could both travel together around the country and be at home at the same time.
Spare Time at Our Jefferson, Texas B&B
Tammy is an avid quilter and photographer and loves to make scrapbook pages and homemade cards. She also likes decorative painting and trying new recipes for breakfast.
David enjoys picking up his guitar and singing in the evenings. He is an accomplished hunter and fisherman and loves to find new fishing holes. David also happens to be your breakfast chef, and he takes great pride in the delicious meals that he makes for our guests.
