Our stay here was exactly what I had hoped for at a B&B in Natchez. We stayed at the Aunt Clara's cottage in the Alice room. Lovely antiques, a comfortable porch, drinks and snacks available. Quality sheets on the bed, soft towels and a very comfy robe. Even the iron was high quality! The breakfast was delicious and we enjoyed... More

We picked this B&B because they allowed pets. They had a lovely fenced in yard in the back, which was nice for the pooches. Upon arrival, the dogs were given treats and a bow, which they of course loved. They were also each given a souvenir dog bowl, which was a lovely touch. We stayed in Aunt Clara's Cottage. The...

We loved this B & B! The owners went out of their way to be hospitable to us. We loved the charming comfortable antique furniture in every room. Our sheets were the yummiest we have ever felt and the luxurious robes were enjoyed while we stayed there. Our favorite part was waking up to the smell of breakfast cooking and... More

Booked Deveraux Shields for just one night but we wouldn't mind staying here forever. Beautiful rooms decorated in the antebellum style with often original furniture. Sitting on the beautiful porch, I guess there is little to wish for. We felt very welcome and Eleonore's breakfast is memorable. We were staying in Aunt Clara's cottage wich was a bit further down...

This was a great experience for us. The home was beautiful, clean and friendly. Breakfast was wonderful and all needs we're met. Truly charming! The owners made us feel right at home and we had freedom to come and go as we pleased. There was a bar on the main floor that was available for guests.

The Devereaux Shields B and B is the most beautiful, quaint little place! This was our first experience with a bed and breakfast and I think we'll never turn back! The breakfast was great and Ron and Eleanor made us feel right at home. This experience was well worth the money and Natchez offered a lovely, relaxing historical experience! Thank... More

Service was courteous. Ron is friendly and knowledgeable about the goings on in Natchez, recommended some excellent places to eat. Facilities are clean and comfortable. We had more room than we needed. Breakfast each morning was good, and the grounds were peaceful. I would stay here again.

Aunt Clara's Cottage is a great place to spend some time. Accommodations and attention to detail are well thought out. From the bath towels to the sheets to an awesome breakfast! Ron and Eleanor are excellent hosts. Highly recommend this house for your stay.
