We were fortunate to spend 3 nights in Natchez at the Devereaux Shields House / Aunt Clara's Cottage the middle of April 2014. Everything was beyond expectations. There were 8 of us and we occupied the 4 bedrooms at Aunt Clara's Cottage. Rooms were clean and large. Beds were great. Bathrooms clean. Breakfast each morning was outstanding. Our hosts were...

Eleanor and Ron are terrific hosts and we loved staying at Aunt Clara's Guest Cottage. It is in the middle of beautiful Natchez, convenient to all the attractions. The southern breakfasts in the charming dining room were delicious! Thank you for making our visit delightful.

We had such an amazing experience in Natchez. When we arrived at the Devereaux Shields house, Ron the owner had us follow him down the street to "Aunt Clara's Cottage" just three doors down and across the street. We had the Victoria Suite, and it has to be the best room in the house for couples. A huge King-sized bed... More

We were stopping in Natchez on our way home from Florida and did not have a place to stay. I got on line and found this B&B. I called and spoke with Eleanor who said she had the Victoria Suite in the Cottage available for that night. We were visiting during the Spring Pilgrimage so Natchez was very busy at... More

Ambiance, charm, great service, and out of this world breakfasts. Highly recommend. Also a great location for touring the antebellum homes. We did the spring pilgrimage tour and enjoyed each home. This was a great "girlfriend" getaway.

I searched the web and based on Trip Advisor chose this. What a good decision. Eleanor and Ron are lovely hosts, warm and helpful. We stayed in the Elmo room which was large and comfortable with a king bed, daybed, chaise lounge and wing chair. The bathroom is roomy and well appointed with big fluffy towels and all the amenities.... More

My wife and I spent our honeymoon here this past December and fell in love with the place. We spent 2 nights in the Gallery Suite, which was more than enough space for the two of us. The room was very spacious and the king size bed was very comfortable. The house and rooms were extremely clean. The outside balcony... More

We spent Christmas night as a diversion during a trip to New Orleans. We were in a King room in Clara's Cottage (can't recall the room name). Room was spacious and comfortable, owners have upgraded to an excellent HVAC system, with auxiliary heater in the room. Wifi, a large TV, all the modern conveniences with that homey B&B feel. Breakfast... More

We ended our drive of the Natchez Trace Pkwy on Christmas eve and stayed here overnight. Being the holidays, we weren't certain how attentive the service would be or if there would even be a breakfast offered on Christmas morning. On our evening arrival, Ron & Eleanor, the owners, were stupendously hospitable and helpful. There is nothing not to like... More
