My husband and I stayed in the Kellogg room for 3 nights. We loved it! Comfy king size bed, large bathroom which is pretty unusual in this age home, and very quiet at night (we never knew there was anyone else there but us)! We had breakfast each morning with different guests at the large dining room table. Everyone said,... More

The Elms is a beautiful antebellum home that is over 200 years old. My husband and I stayed in the Kellogg room. It was a beautiful suite with a king size bed and a bathroom with a walk-in shower and a beautiful claw foot tub. We were greeted by Mr. Jerry who is the perfect southern gentleman. He showed us...

Lovely period property set on the edge of historic downtown. Property dates back to 1804 with real charm. Ester and Jerry were very welcoming with real Southern hospitality. I stayed in the Drake suite with a double bed in the main bedroom, two twins in the other bedroom, and a well equipped bathroom. In addition to the antiques, the room... More

My wife and I stayed here for one night. Our only regret is that we were not staying a second as we would have loved to have some more time to soak up the ambiance in the house. Our host was gracious and welcoming and the room was amazing. A real slice of gracious living.

This was our first time to stay at a Bed and Breakfast so was a little unsure of it. What a wonderful experience we had at the Elms. The home has so much history and is absoluetly beautiful. We stayed in the Kellogg room which was like stepping back in time. Esther met us at the door even though she... More

Just returned from a "girls' trip" to Natchez and stayed at The Elms. Loved the house, the hospitality, hearing the history of the home. Wonderful breakfast, beautiful antiques. Made us feel so welcome and at home. Enjoyed visiting with the owner and staff. Great time and experience. Highly recommend.

... into a glorious, historic Natchez home. Such a treat! We arrived in Natchez after a long drive and were immediately swept up by the hospitality and dream-like qualities of this beautiful property.

For our 40th anniversary, we stayed at The Elms. Our room, the Drake, was spacious, comfortable, filled with lovely antiques and equipped with a thoroughly modern bathroom. We spent evenings watching the sunset from the second floor veranda that surrounded our room. Our host Jerry went out of his way to make our visit a wonderful experience. Breakfast was delicious....
