Loved everything about it. The tour guide was perfect. Plenty of time to look around on your own. Price was perfect. House was almost destroyed during Katrina but has been rebuilt. Lots of original furnishings and antiques. Inside paint redone using original colors and designs. All good. Worth your money and time.

Excellent mansion tour. Mansion has undergone extensive repairs after hurricane damage. Post-Katrina Visitor and Presidential Library are outstanding. Not just about the Confederacy (as I was expecting), but about Union Generals and the overall Civil War, as well. Beautiful gardens and grounds, including the cemetery where many animals are free to roam.

Few years ago, I passed the chance to visit this place and I promised myself that I won't pass it by next time. I had no idea there was reenactment of civil war was going on at the back of the presidential house. Cannons and rifles were fired and men and woman in period costumes were there for you to... More

Visiting Beauvoir was a nice way to learn a little about Jefferson Davis and the home he lived in for a time. The library and museum has a nice collection of civil war items and history tidbits. Be sure to visit the animals in the back yard. There are several and Stanley the camel will love to nuzzle you if... More

Don't be fooled into thinking this was Jefferson Davis actual home. This is the home he lived in until his death after the end of the Civil War. The grounds were nice but I'd skip this home and do something else.

We enjoyed the tour and seeing the home. It is amazing all of the time, money, and dedication that has been put into restoring the home after the hurricane. We also enjoyed the animals walking around in the back and literally got face to face with a camel!

Lots of artifacts, thankfully saved even through Katrina. Scenic water view and beautiful gardens add to the enjoyment. Presidential library is worth the trip alone. We were greeted with southern hospitality that comes so natural in Mississippi. No question that the people who worked there wanted to make the visit enjoyable.

Delightful property for a reception. Staff is extremely accommodating. It is expensive $3000 for 4 hours. Only one draw back ... don't expect to use warming ovens for food ... the electrical cannot handle the load. Beauvoir is the best on the Gulf Coast for a wedding reception. We highly recommend this location for a once in a lifetime event.

This was the end of our Civil War History tour for us. We have seen as many civil war sights as we could this year. We started in Tennessee at the Franklin Battlefield, Gettysburg, several Confederate Museums, cemeteries, & Battlefields in VA, N.C., S.C., GA, and ending it in MS. This was a great ending for us cause a lot... More
