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

We arrived early afternoon and were welcomed with a glass of wine from the very friendly owner. We asked for advice where to visit and eat and recommendation was helpful. House is beautiful and rooms just lovely. Breakfast was round a large communal table & we had a great time talking to the other guests.

We stayed at Devereaux Shields House - actually at their "cottage" a short ways down the street from the main house - in October 2014, and were awestruck by the beautiful furnishings and decor. It was like sleeping in a museum, with 5-star service. The breakfasts were especially delicious, and hosts Ron and Eleanor were warm and accommodating - they... More

My friends and I stayed at this B&B for two nights. We shared a gorgeous 2 bedroom one bath suite. The home is beautifully decorated, the beds and amenities perfect and the food for breakfast was fantastic. Ron and Eleanor Fry are the proprietors. They are very knowledgeable about where to eat and what to see. This is a must... More

This is a great bed and breakfast: the hosts are welcoming and helpful, the room was extremely spacious and comfortable, and the homemade quiche, cheese grits, ham and BEST biscuits in the south were delightful. We stayed in Clara's cottage ca. 1897. Our dog was also welcomed here.

Me and my wife stayed here while travelling around the southern states on our honeymoon and we still rave about the place. We always compare how soft and nice beds are compared to this place. The linen smells of almonds and the breakfast was superb. Would love to return here one day.

My sister and I thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to Natchez just after Christmas 2014! It was due to the great hospitality of the couple hosting us at the Devereaux Shields House and their knowledgeable guidance that we enjoyed every single tour and meal during our stay at the quaint Aunt Clara's Cottage property. The breakfasts were presented and served... More

We were looking for a B&B in a historic house that allowed dogs. Aunt Clara's Cottage turned out to be a perfect choice. It is run by Eleanor and Ron at the Devereaux Sheilds house. They are excellent host and hostess. They made us and our greyhound feel at home and even made an extra effort to accommodate our breakfast... More
