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.

This was a one-night stop for us on our way to the Mississippi Gulf Coast. So glad we stayed with Ron and Mimi who were very knowledgeable about the area. The B&B was convenient to walking in the old historic area and the Mississippi bluff area. It should be noted that the rooms are on the second floor and may... More

Thanks for taking the time to write a review and saying such kind things. Also, thanks for mentioning that all our guest rooms are on the second floor so that future guests, who may not have visited our web site, will be aware of that fact. The First Room, where you stayed, is the only room on the west side,... More

We had the 'romantic' room which was delightful. The breakfasts were plentiful and delightful and the hosts Ron and Mimi were friendly, knowledgeable and helpful while giving us plenty of space. They supplied wine and fruit and it was lovely to sit on the veranda with a glass of wine at the end of the day before dining out. The... More

We had such a great time at the Wensel House. We really liked the atmosphere there; friendly relaxed, intelligent, urbane hosts and a house that feels lived in rather than a show home. We felt like we'd gone to stay with some old friends. If I was ever in Natchez again - which doesn't seem likely - then I'll be... More

We stayed here at the conclusion of our bicycle trip down the Natchez Trace. Ron was a wonderful host and exceptionally helpful. He drove us to dinner and to the car rental agency the following morning. He and Mimi are very knowledgeable about the community and interesting to talk to about the history of the area. The room was very... More
