My husband and I spent two nights in the Rose suite. This is a spacious two room suite ideal for 2-4 visitors. The king bed was comfortable, the large bathroom had more than enough towels, a very nicely appointed suite. The plush robes we found in the closet were super cozy to wrap up in while checking e-mail on the... More

My wife and I stayed in the Elmo room for her birthday this weekend and we really enjoyed it. The entire experience was pleasant and enjoyable from the moment we checked in until we checked out. Ron and Eleanor were great hosts and extremely helpful in giving ideas of things to see, places to go and sharing their knowledge about... More

This is a quality, privately owned and run bed and breakfast establishment. The man and wife team are extremely pleasant and helpful. It has two properties, the main house and aunt Clara's cottage across the road. Both are individual and charming in their own right and both superb. We had a great time thanks to Ron and Eleanor who put... More

An excellent stay in Natchez. Nice to be We were in Aunt Clara's cottage- room was massive, clean and well appointed. Hosts could not do any more to make you feel welcome. Breakfasts were good, sitting with other guests gave the opportunity to chat and exchange travel tips and where to go- we got loads of good info on New... More

My partner and I visited Devereaux Shields House during our road trip of the Deep South. We had decided to stay, where possible, in smaller, Victorian Hotels and BB's to experience a sense of History. The house is situated on an atmospheric tree lined street of similar period properties. Our room was spacious and comfortable and contained a huge antique... More

We spent 2 nights in the Louise room which is in 'Aunt Clara's Cottage', just over the road from the main house. We were given a very warm welcome including small bottles of wine! It is located in a very pleasant residential area only a short walk or drive to downtown Natchez where there is a good selection of restaurants.... More

My husband and I stayed a weekend in April 2015 at Devereaux Shields House. From the moment we arrived until we left that Monday Ron and Eleanor could not have been more accommodating hosts. I was aghast to read a review that was not in favor of this bed and breakfast. We stayed in both Aunt Clara's Cottage and the... More

We opted to stay here in order to experience a little of the old style charm of Natchez. We were not disappointed. The house is delightful and - contrary to a recent view- in a very pleasant area within walking distance of a number of good restaurants. At no time, even late at night, did we feel the slightest threat.... More

this is a quaint, comfortable Bed and Breakfast run by a wonderful friendly couple Eleanor and Ron. The house is in the Victorian style built in the mid-late 1800's. There are a lot of beautiful antiques in the home and rooms. We stayed in the Rose Suite which had two separate rooms, one with a queen sized and one king... More

Ron and Eleanor are very nice, and I applaud their efforts to maintain a B&B in a neighborhood which is struggling. What none of these reviews tell you, and I'm shocked, because the whole point of Trip Advisor is to get honest reviews from real people, is that the home is situated in a very mixed neighborhood. There will be... More

VictorianComfort, Owner at Devereaux Shields House, responded to this review

We thank these guests for applauding our Bed & Breakfast. However, we must admit that after many years of rewarding 5-star service to our southern travelers we never thought we would be celebrating our 10th anniversary with such a poor review. In our experience guests only find in our B&B and Natchez what is already in their heart. This family... More
