The Elms is an amazing B&B and I cannot tell you how perfect our stay was here. Everything about The Elms oozes Southern charm & hospitality. The house itself is so beautiful, and I enjoyed exploring the grounds and the house itself. Jerry gave us an extensive tour of the house and its antiques upon our arrival, and had many... More

The Elms is one of Natchez's many landmark homes that give you the feel of being a part of the Natchez historical experience. The house is filled with period furniture that has belonged to the family for many generations. Jerry is the host who provides a personalized tour with historical context that really helps to set the stage for the... More

Stayed over one night while making a loop through MS. Perfect. Ms Esther was lovely, as was Cathy who checked us in. Very quiet, comfortable and relaxing. Felt as if we were staying with family. Skipped breakfast due to our lax views regarding scheduling. A great stay. Will visit again.

Our visit to the Elms was superb. You are greeted by the genial Jerry who will tell you everything and more that you need to know about this fifth generation owned home, as well as Natchez itself. The owner, Esther Carpenter, is a warm person who loves her home and wants you to feel the history of Natchez and its... More

The owner (Esther) made the absolute BEST buttermilk pancakes I've ever eaten in my life!! She is an awesome cook! We stayed in the Drake room with the handpainted walls. It was so beautiful. Our kids stayed in the room with 2 twins and my husband and I were in the adjoining room with the king bed and fireplace. Our... More

With three large rooms, this plantation home makes you feel like you are the owner. Throw in Jerry, the most affable host...and you have a memorable stay. We originally wanted to stay in the Dunleigh, but they were sold out due to a wedding party. It was a twist of fate that brought our party to The Elms. Sitting on... More

Perfect for this southern belle. Our stay at the Elms was very peaceful and relaxing. The room was charming and the beds were comfortable. We really loved the wrap around porch and complementary wine. The staff was also very personable and helpful; when I told him I was in the military he went to a lot of trouble to give... More

My fiend and I stayed in The Drake...It was lovely, and the house itself is beautiful. Jerry is a wonderful host, but we never met the owner Esther. We were told that she is a great chef, however our breakfast was cooked by Kathy. While it was ok, it was JUST ok. We did not feel welcomed, because Esther and... More

Charming hosts, Jerry and Esther, and an amazing old house absolutely jam packed with history. Stayed in the Carpenter Room and the bed was so comfy. Natchez is a quiet town, lovely to walk around and see the old buildings and huge old houses.
