My recent stay at Anchuca proved to be just as delightful as my previous visits. The staff greets you with just the right amount of Southern grace. I immediately felt like I was with family. I stayed in one of the Carriage house rooms that are like a step back in time with much required modern indoor plumbing. The grounds... More

Or nearly so, it was pretty. The collection was thick. Furniture isn't made like this anymore, as the wood is no longer available and the tools wore out with the craftsmen.

Great building and story. Also, you can eat there too and it is even better. Five stars. Fried Green Tomatoes best ever!

We recently spent one night at Anchuca, and I regretted that we didn't have time to take the house tour the next morning. We stayed in the adjoining carriage house, and our room was a little small but very well appointed. The staff thought of everything to add to our comfort, including lovely coffee cups and saucers for morning coffee.... More

The architecture in itself was most interesting since it was built in stages at different times. The furnishings are fabulous as well. Interesting that Jefferson Davis's brother lived here, and Davis gave his last public speech from the upstairs balcony. The house survived the Siege of Vicksburg and was used during the war. The grounds are lovely. Didn't have the... More

We were in a hurry so missed the upstairs due to a time restriction. The video was informative and I enjoyed seeing the home while learning the history that took place. Jefferson Davis made his last public speech on the balcony. I would have enjoyed more time to really learn and explore the history at this home. They have a... More

This elegant mansion is a quiet, tasteful look into the southern past. When you tour this museum-in-a-home, you are surrounded by gracious history (the furniture, dishes, carpets, curios, pictures, etc.). We were on a time-limited tour, so we did not have the time to eat here or stay overnight, both options I would definitely consider if I were ever to... More

This is a must on everyone's list who visits Vicksburg. History and wonderful food. Buy the cookbook if you can.

We made the mistake of not having our accommodations here but had the most amazing dinner! Our dining experience started with a very warm welcome from Tarsha Neal. She is a great asset to the Mansion... Our serveuse was Kerri Hutson who continued the pampering throughout the dinner. Very attentive to our needs, she too helped create this magical evening....

This is a wonderful tour of a well-maintained Southern mansion. If you want to see how the owners of the Old South lived, go to Anchuga and Cedar Grove.
