We stayed in the Jefferson Davis Room at the Briars for the Labor Day weekend. Our view of the Mississippi River was outstanding and the room was comfortable and well furnished. The daily breakfast was awesome! The cook sure knows how to make grits! The best we have ever had and we were raised in the South. We highly recommend... More

Situated on the highest point of the Mississippi south oh St. Louis, The Briars offers comfortable accommodations in an historic setting. It makes for a greet romantic get away. That said, we visited as a family of five and slept in one of the buildings on the edge of the property, in a one bedroom suite with a kitchen, large... More

We've been going to the Briars for many years now and have never been disappointed. We're always served delicious home style southern breakfast each morning. Jeanette , along with the other employees, could not have been more hospitable & polite, attending to all our needs & wants. We even left with freshly picked pears from the tree at the entrance.

My son's wedding was at The Briars and was just breathtaking. The grounds were gorgeous and the backdrop of the plantation home was beautiful. Our families stayed overnight in the rooms and they were clean and comfortable and the breakfast was delicious. My 82 year old mother had never stayed at a bed and breakfast and was so impressed, she... More

The Briars B&B offers the most beautiful view in all of Natchez and possibly on the entire Mississippi River. Sitting on the back porch of Briarvue which looks out over the River is beautiful and so relaxing. What a picture perfect location. The view at night of the lighted River bridge that spans from MS to LA is gorgeous. The... More

Despite the efforts of the two ladies who run the Briars, it needs a man's touch. A man with a bulldozer. It is potentially unsafe and in our room a faint smell of gas. We were above the kitchens. And also despite the rickety wooden walkway to view the mighty Mississippi, we would have been safer in the nearby Best... More

My husband and I came to stay for the weekend in the School House room. It was a little musty (but it WAS built in 1785 and is partially underground), so it is expected. The room was fantastic. The story of how it was built from flats on the river is on the wall for you to read. The views... More

After reading the prior reviews , my wife & I stayed at the Briars .We travel quite frequently & stay in a variety of accommodations. Regardless of how one might classify the Briars,it is not a 5 star B&B. We have stayed at several B&B's in Natchez that are far superior. The positives.. 1. The manager is charming & accommodating...

I have been to The Briars on multiple occasions and each one was nicer than the one before it. I have attended two bridesmaid’s brunches there; at one the owner himself served us a delicious breakfast. The room was beautiful and the staff was great. I have also has the pleasure of staying at The Briars for a weekend. I... More
