My husband, daughter and I stayed here for 2 nights on our driving tour of some of the Southern states. We were made to feel extremely welcome by the very generous hosts. We had a lovely room in Aunt Clara's cottage and, especially enjoyed relaxing on the Veranda. I would thoroughly recommend both Natchez and this B&B for a relaxing... More

This was a great place to stay. Our hosts were friendly and went out of their way to make us feel welcome. We stayed in the Aunt Clara's cottage in the Louise room. The room was very comfortable and quiet. The breakfast was delicious and we had a great opportunity to visit with the other guests as we enjoyed our... More

My wife and I stayed for 2 nights in early July, with a room in the Carriage House. The Carriage House is a short walk from the main house and conveniently located on the north side of town - a short drive to anywhere in the city, but in quiet area. There was a nice, large front porch (facing east)... More

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.
