This is a wonderful place to stay. We had just one night in Vicksburg and are so glad we chose to stay at Anchuca. We have been travelling for over 25 years and this is the best independent accommodation we've ever stayed at - it has every facility you could want. The staff were fantastic - friendly and helpful.

The home is beautiful. You watch a five minute video and self tour home. This home was owned by Jefferson Davis' brother and Jefferson Davis made a speech to the citizens of Vicksburg from the balcony. For Civil war buffs it's a great place to see.

The home and grounds, the food and staff...all were beyond exceptional. An extra bathroom upstairs would be a good addition, but the one was so perfectly huge that it wasn't an issue.

We had dinner and a tour of the mansion. Every dish was special and memorable, beautiful, interesting surroundings, friendly staff. You must try the seafood gumbo!

What a stunning mansion. This property is well maintained by the current owners. The garden and patios are well maintained - the pool is gorgeous. They have a great video narrated by a former resident of the home that describes many of the original or historic pieces. If you're lucky you can peek into one of the B&B rooms to... More

Anchuca is a lovely well preserved former merchant’s house in Vicksburg now operating as an up market stylish B&B. Anchuca means “happy home” in the language of the Cochtaw, a local Indian tribe. While grand in its own way, it is not to be compared with the vast plantation style antebellum houses found in other parts of Mississippi and Louisiana.... More

We loved our stay at Anchuca. We were surrounded by the history of the era which brought so much meaning to our visit to this area. You won't be disappointed with a stay in the main house or carriage house. Hope to return some day.

We stayed here for 3 nights in April when the weather was very poor so that does have an effect on how you enjoy a place. This is a very nice place to stay whether it's the carriage rooms or the main house. Breakfast is very good and served from 8 until 9am though it is presented without a choice.... More
