We stayed at Anchuca for one night during a road trip across the USA this past summer, and it was one of the highlights of our trip. We splurged for the Wilson room, which was incredibly beautiful - the art work in the room (and throughout the house) was stunning, and the furnishings were beautiful - it felt odd to... More

After watching a short video tour, we were allowed to explore the home freely, taking pictures - something not allowed in most historic homes. The china collection was especially lovely with a number of Faberge eggs with matching tea cups and saucers. Looking up the staircase to the light fixture on the second floor was an impressive view. We were... More

So glad that you enjoyed the tour and visiting Anchuca. I'm sorry you weren't able to access the balcony. Usually that is not a problem! More

Beautiful antebellum home with period furnishings. Interesting construction with lovely grounds. Suites in the home definitely worth it.

We were seeing the sights in Vicksburg and were running out of time to see everything we wanted, so we picked this house because it was close to the historic downtown district and the Old Courthouse which we knew we did not want to miss. The owner and his family and others who worked there were so gracious and welcoming.... More

This isn't like one of the plantation homes you see along the Mississippi river but it's a nice example of homes in the Vicksburg area prior to the civil war. A short video of the history of the home is provided prior to a self guided tour. The second story has a balcony where you can stand and look out... More

Nice restaurant included for lunch and dinners. Tour through the house by owners. Joe Davis was a remarkable man that helped educate the Blacks on his plantation. In 1864 he sold his plantation to Sam Montgomery, his black manager. The Montgmery's story is in a book "In Persuit Of A Dream". Joe was a pioneer that helped Blacks be prepared... More

Still a great place to visit every year. Tom and Chris and Sandra always are so very personable and remember us. Great relaxing pool and great dinner. The Seabass was amazing. Great service. Clean even though a very historic home. Breakfast is included with your room. Best biscuits around!

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.
