My sister and I spent one night here and came to Natchez to tour the homes. Ron greeted us and we felt at home right away. He and Mimi have thought of many ways to offer a very comfortable stay including providing ice and a variety of beverages, including wine at all times, a collection of menus from local restaurants...

We stayed at this wonderful B & B May 9 and 10th. The home was spic and span clean. The Wensel House is beautifully restored. The location is near downtown and the bluff. We parked our car and walked to restaurants and sights in the downtown area. No road noise. We stayed in the "First " room. Ron and Mimi... More

I don't think Mimi would expect Japanese tourists every day, however she provided warmest welcome to both of us. We stayed in Wensel House on August 22nd and 23rd with two American friends. At the Natchez Visitor Center, we heard Mimi's familiar voice on the tourism promotional movie! Ms. Ellen, the last princess of Henderson of Natchez was our tour... More

Spent a long girl's weekend at this fabulous B&B. Mimi is such a wealth of knowledge and excellent hostess. Facility is right downtown within walking distance of many attractions and restaurants. Rooms were super comfortable. We will definitely stay here again next time!

We bicycled 70 miles in hot sun to reach this inn, so you can imagine the joy of having free soft drinks and ice, air conditioning, and a safe place to store our bikes for 3 nights. Rates here are a good value too. Mimi owns and manages the B&B and is a human encyclopedia of local information. Breakfasts are... More

I stayed 2 nights at the Wensel House when I was in town for a conference at the convention center. It's located only 3 short blocks from the center and in the heart of the historic district. I loved the rooms--antique 4 poster bed and other period furniture. The owner is very friendly and quite flexible with whatever you need.... More

This B&B is wonderful. The room was very comfortable, breakfast of the highest standards, and service outstanding. The city of Natchez has a lot of Southern hospitality and delicious foods. This B&B is located at the bluffs of the Mississippi. We will return for a longer visit in the near future and will be sure to stay here again. The... More

Well done restoration, good breakfast, 22 steps to bedrooms. Mimi was pleasant, when she was there. Bathroom adequate. Strong fruit aging odors. Parking not an issue, availability in the back and on street. Nice to be able to walk anywhere.

I just returned from a girlfriend trip which included a three-night stay with Mimi at 1888 Wensel House. We loved it! There were three of us and we stayed in "The Front Room" which had a queen bed, a twin bed, a huge bathroom and a walk-in closet. It was on the front of the house, but the only "noise"... More
