Spent two nights here and felt that it really added to our Southern experience. Ron and Eleanor do their absolute best to have you feel welcomed right from the minute you cross the threshold. The home is beautifully and authentically decorated, with an interesting photo gallery lining the main staircase. We had the Gallery Suite which is two bedrooms, the... More

We stayed for two nights in Devereaux Shields Home and it was a great pleasure to keep in contact with Elenore and Ron. Thanks for your advice and making us feeling comfortable and welcomed in your house. Like to see you and your nice Nachtez again. Eike

I absolutely love this place. Upon arriving I was greeted with hospitality and kindness. They provided a tour of the house, shared some history and made time to chat with their guest. I had the Rose room and it is so comfortable, beautiful, charming and affordable. I cannot wait to come back! Its a perfect location and the staff are... More

Warmly greeted by Lorraine the house keeper and introduced to Ron and Eleanor the owners who ensured that everyone was looked after and had everything they needed to make their stay enjoyable and comfortable.

The Home was beautiful and the cottage was nice as well. I very much enjoyed the evening reception. I enjoyed meeting the other couples from different areas. The carriage ride we... More

Ron and Eleanor made our stay in Natchez one of the best and most rememberable visits we have ever had. Their hospitality and extra touches they include with their bed and breakfast makes you feel as if you are in a fairytale. From sitting around the fireplace visiting with other guest to wine and cheese sampling daily they really know... More

Ron, Eleanor and the staff were great. Their "home" was well restored and maintained. We enjoy walking and the location was perfect. The nearby (4 short blocks) river walk was one beautiful choice or strolling the different streets viewing the beautiful old homes and mansions was another. Ron could always be counted on for "things to do" and places to... More

We stayed in Aunt Clara's Cottage in the Victoria room for one night. It was like a step back in time.. the room was great. Ron and Eleanor were great host. The house and cottage are both filled with beautiful antiques. Whether it is relaxing on the porch, a get together at the main house for wine and cheese, or... More
