Ron and Mimi are the consummate hosts, throw in their expansive knowledge of everything Natchez making a stay at Wensel House well beyond the pale. This house has been magnificently restored and features large rooms with large bathrooms, housing all the modern amenities for a totally comfortable interlude. The accommodations and the conversation would make for 5 stars, but the... More

This was such a perfect 1-night stay for us. We had been traveling from FL for several days and this B&B was a port in the storm. There was private parking in the rear of the house. Our room (the front room) had a lovely canopy bed and a large, very clean bath. Ron helped us with our many boxes... More

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Wensel House. A classic B&B located very close to the river, the house has been lovingly restored by our hosts Ron (an architectural historian) and Mimi (head of the Natchez Historical Society). The location is excellent and our room (the Front Room) was large and well appointed. Being located on the side... More

Wonderful historic home in the middle of town. You feel as you were back in the previous century, thus enhancing your overall Natchez experience. On top of that, the owner is extremely friendly and is a mine of useful information about Natchez and anything else around.

Thanks for the kind appraisal of our location. I, too, sometimes feel like I'm in the historic past of our town, especially when one of the horse-drawn carriages comes clip-clopping along the street in front of the house. It sounds a lot like the old days (but without the smells). More

We stayed with Ron & Mimi for (sadly) only one night in mid March in the Oak Room which was very roomy, with a great sized bathroom. Situated one block from the river and a lovely walking path. Ron & Mimi are wonderful hosts, warm and friendly, and both are passionate about their home and the local area. Breakfast was... More

Made a last minute reservation in Natchez. It was only luck that we stayed at the Wensel house. Ron and Mimi have been hosting guests for many years. They know what they are doing and are excellent hosts. The breakfast was generous and delicious. The room was clean and comfortable. Natchez is a very interesting city and Ron and Mimi... More

Spent one night in Wensel House. The bed was comfortable, the hosts extremely kind and accommodating, the building beautiful inside and out, and the breakfast the best I had over my ten days in the South. Very reasonably priced, too. Highly recommended.

My daughter and I had stayed one night for a short weekend getaway. Ron and Mimi were very nice and gave us the low down on the area, maps, etc. The breakfast was wonderful and our room was very nice. I would stay there again.
