Ron and Eleanor are the most welcoming and helpful hosts. They couldn't do enough to make your stay pleasant. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this delightful guesthouse. A wonderful generous hospitality is the spirit of your hosts. Please visit and enjoy this splendid house in delightful Natchez.

We knew nothing about Natchez, but after a bit of research thought it'd be a nice place to visit to break up our Road Trip from Memphis to New Orleans. Devereaux Shields stood out when looking for a place to stay, but we never expected the room to be so nice, it's massive & with the large balcony overlooking the... More

We needed to find a B&B that accepted dogs and Aunt Clara's cottage part of the Devereaux Shields House was a wonderful surprise. We arrive on New Years Eve around 6:30 without having made reservations for dinner. Our hosts got on the phone and arranged dinner for us at a local Bistro with live entertainment. I can begin to describe... More

Just returned from reunion with cousins at Aunt Clara's Cottage. We took all four rooms and it was just what we were looking for. The hosts went out of the way-one night two cousins did not feel like going out and they made chicken soup for them. Loved it!

A warm welcome from Ron and Arlene made me feel right at home immediately. |The room was very comfortable and offered plenty of reading materials and historical depictions of the city of Natchez. The common area was stocked with candies, sodas and other delights to snack on while relaxing in the many public gathering spaces, porches and gardens. I would... More

Ron and Eleanor treated us like we were their only guests; they were so attentive and at the same time gave us plenty of privacy. The Rose Suite was beautiful and clean, and the grounds were well kept. We enjoyed our stay and cannot wait to come back.

Understated elegance in a lovely Victorian home on a street filled with beauty. Breakfast did not disappoint. Wine and cheese served in the afternoon. Friendly staff. Gorgeous gardens and inviting porches. Highly recommend.

We stayed with Ron and Eleanor for a few days over new years. Such great hosts who cared about every attention to detail during our stay. We stayed in the Rose suite during our stay which was more than sufficient to our needs. Very cosy with lots of space. Very clean and well equipped. We were able to use the... More

My wife and I spent a night of our honeymoon at the Devereaux Shields. The house and gardens are full of charm. We love well-preserved period furniture, and this house didn't disappoint. The owners are completely committed to guest satisfaction. They recommended restaurants, and they even called to make the reservation for us. We loved our complimentary glass of wine... More
