Rosewood is a lovely atebellum home located just outside Natchez Ms. Here you will be treated to true southern hospitality. 100 acres surround the white columned mansion. Breakfast by Ms. Peggy is lavishly served on the owners collection of of fine china and silver. The home is filled with antiques collected on the owners travels throughout Euroe and Asia. Don't...

Rosswood is such a beautiful home! And the sweet people that live/work there are the icing on the cake! It's a must do and see! The breakfast in the morning was a special treat! My 3 girlfriends and I went for a girls trip. Be sure and stop by the old country store right up the road for the best... More

Ran across these reviews and was so excited to see that Rosswood's greatness has endured. Had to chime in. Our family stayed at Rosswood for 2 nights 14 years ago when we were headed to the beach. I had searched for a Natchez B&B, but children under 13 were not welcomed. Rosswood was the exception. Concerned it was a typo,... More

This is a perfect place for any history lover! The innkeepers, Walt and Jean, have thoroughly researched and documented the property and it's history is absolutely fascinating. While the antiques in the home are not original to the property, they are of the period, and beautiful. The deer and other wildlife, seen both evening and morning, from the upstairs porch... More

Vistors to Mississippi in search of a relaxing retreat at an historic antebellum home should find their way to Lorman, Mississippi -- just a few miles off the Natchez Trace -- to the Rosswood Plantation. This is a lived-in property that evokes both a homey coziness and the splendor of a time gone by. For history buffs, the diary of... More

This is the most wonderful B&B we have ever stayed in...we've been there several times & will return again when we can. Walt & Jean are warm & wonderful hosts & we absolutely LOVE this place. It is a journey back in time, for sure. ♥

The home is amazing, a must see. Plan to spend a good amount of time here for the tour. Walt gives a lot of history of the home before the house tour. We were on a schedule and had to leave without hearing all of the history and Jean did give us a tour of the home. Both Walt and... More

I felt like I had truly stepped back in time visiting this gorgeous home of Colonel Walt Hylander and his beautiful wife Jean. Learning the history of the original owner when it was a 1250 acre plantation was so interesting. But Jean and Walt have made the Rosswood Mansion their home since 1975. Jean shares wonderful stories about the amazing... More

Five star breakfast. Seriously - I've eaten at lots of inns and B&B's and this was absolutely the best breakfast!! The room was excellent, very comfortable, and we experienced a good southern thunderstorm from the comfort of the wicker seats on the second floor porch. Great experience~

Your breath is almost taken as you drive by the white fence and then see the house off in the distance. As you drive up the long drive towards the home, you feel like you are going back in time to the antebellum South. Mrs. Jean is a gracious lady and her son gave us a wonderful historic review of...
