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

The museum has a good film of 30 minutes to start, and the diorama of the battle ground makes the visit to the battlefield make more sense. The railroad set up is meticulously done. Worth a stop.

We went for dinner and ended up making memories. The experience starts when you walk in the door and are greeted by an awesome staff along with Chris, the chef and co-owner. Chris gave us a tour of the beautiful house along with the history. Everything is beautiful and well maintained. The grounds are gorgeous and tended with obvious loving... More

We are staying 2 nights in this wonderful property and have found everyone very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed a tour of the main house and learned about it's history. I would recommend staying in the main house if you have the option, although we have found the Carriage House charming and very comfortable. Our meal last night was excellent;... More

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.
