Violet Hill Inn has it all. My husband and I hesitated to book a bed and breakfast because not all of our B&B experiences have been that great. But in Natchitoches, it seemed that B&B was the way to go. The town has so many choices. After quite a bit of online research, we settled on Violet Hill Inn after reading all of the reviews. We booked on Friday morning for a Friday afternoon arrival. We lucked out that there was availability. The home is beautiful and exquisitely appointed, the setting and view overlooking the Cane River Lake is stunning, especially from the back veranda, the rooms are lovely, spotless and comfortable (my husband, who has some back issues, is trying to find the exact mattress that we slept on, as he fell in love with the mattress in the Arthur Coble Room). The way the house is arranged and with the two large outdoor areas overlooking Cane River, we always felt that we had our privacy (which is a "biggie" for us). There is a reason that most every review mentions the innkeeper, Charles. He is some kind of wonderful!!! I could go on and on about Charles, but you just really must experience his charm and wit, his singing, his incredible breakfasts, his complete dedication to the comfort and care of his guests. He was never intrusive, but always appeared when needed, seemingly out of nowhere. Don't even bother to look any further........Violet Hill will not disappoint !! Just book it!!!
