Our group of 5 seniors (2 American, 3 British) recently completed a 2-week roadtrip of the Southern States. Elgin Plantation was easily our favorite place to stay - and we are unanimous in that! What an absolutely beautiful place in a gorgeous setting. When we arrived it was like driving up to the big house in Gone With the Wind.... More

Elgin is a beautiful home, and its owner (Mrs. Calhoun) is absolutely wonderful. The guest house, where my wife and I stayed, was well furnished and comfortable. Mrs. Calhoun is a delight and will give you a personal tour of the home. We were also served a delicious breakfast each morning by Mrs. Calhoun's helper, Lizzie, who was a delight... More

My father grew up at Elgin. His family lived there from the 1930s until the early 1970s. When a family wedding took us back to Natchez, we found out the guesthouse was available for the weekend. This was a perfect opportunity for my 3 nieces (9, 11, and 13) to visit and see where my father grew up and where... More

We stayed at Elgin Plantation for only two nights, but are so hopeful to be able to return! Our hostess, Mrs. Calhoun, was very charming and welcoming...and Lizzie is a wonderful cook and friendly face to see each morning! The accomodations could not have been better! Clean, comfortable and very private. A wonderful place to rest and relax!

Thanks to Mrs. Ruth Ellen Calhoun and Lizzie we had a fabulous time in Natchez and the weekend went by too fast! We felt so welcomed and "at home" and it was nice to have our breakfast cooked for us in our own dining room in the guest cottage. Relaxing, hospitable and memorable. We will be back when we can...

Lizzy and Ms. Calhoun were some of the kindest, warmest people we've met on our 2-month US road trip. Our room was both very comfortable and beautiful, and we felt relaxed and more at home here than we did at any of the other hotels or B&B's we stayed at. Ms. Calhoun gave us an interesting history lesson, some travel... More

Mrs Calhoun told us a lot about the city, Lizzy made a great breakfast, and the lodge has charming rooms. All in all, we felt that we got a good impression of how life used to be in Natchez.

I recently visited Natchez during Spring Pilgrimage with three dear friends and was delighted with the experience. To begin, we stayed at Elgin Plantation Bed and Breakfast and met out hostess Ruth Ellen Calhoun who was charming and a wealth of information. She made Natchez come alive with suggestions for our daily touring and many stories of the areas rich... More

My mother, sister, and a dear friend went to Natchez for the spring pilgrimage in March. We had a wonderful time visiting the antebellum homes and plantations. However, the highlight for me was actually staying at a plantation. Our hostess, Ruth Ellen Calhoun, was such a charming example of pure, southern hospitality. She was a wealth of information for us.... More

If you had the good fortune to have had a family member with an old southern home you visited as a child, then this is the experience for you. It is truly like stepping back into the past- staying in an authentic antebellum mansion with your favorite aunt as a hostess. If you want new and modern, stay away and... More
