We stayed one night at the 1888 Wensel House as part of our road trip through the South. The house and our room were beautiful - and the hosts, Ron and Mimi, are truly lovely, and provided excellent recommendations for our short stay in Natchez. The location of the house is great, with everything within walking distance (including the beautiful... More

To begin, my husband and I stayed at Wensel House for our honeymoon. Neither of us had ever experienced the hospitality and warmth of a bed and breakfast setting. Our guestroom was the "First Room" and it was absolutely beautiful. Ron and Mimi are both super knowledgeable about Natchez and its history. We enjoyed talking with each of them along... More

Stayed this weekend with some high school friends getting together to celebrate our 40 years out of school. We had stayed here 10 years ago so we wanted the same place. This is a fabulous B&B! The owners, Ron & Mimi Miller, are the perfect hosts. The rooms upstairs are so comfortable and each has it's own private bathroom. Very... More

What a great review! Thank you for your descriptions. We loved having you all stay with us. We had a great good time with you. I'm glad you thought our orange juice was fresh squeezed but I must confess that is actually frozen and reconstituted. We look forward to your return next year. Thanks again for writing a review.

I just wanted to echo all the positive reviews of this place. Mimi and Ron are so warm and their home is beautiful, the guest bedrooms and bathrooms exceptional. We are frequent road trippers to the USA and really enjoy the shared breakfasts and meeting new people. I even tried the grits but still cannot be persuaded that they are... More

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
