The first night of our trip ended with the stunning evening panorama that opened up to us as we passed through the entry just off the Natchez Trace. The security gate opened after we entered the code supplied to us via an informative email from the hostess, Rachel Garber. The sight took our breath away, … the revelation of the antebellum mansion …Brandon Hall surrounded sitting atop the knoll and surrounded by hundreds of monumental Live Oak trees. The whole scene is accented by use of well-done architectural lights.
The actual experience lived up to the pictures and comments on their website. We found the other reviews on Trip Adviser are spot on.
We found our room to be clean, comfortable and elegantly furnished. The bed is one of the most comfortable that I have ever slept on, and it was covered with superior beddings. The bathroom was modern and roomy.
The next morning, Mike served us a very tasty breakfast … eggs, bacon and grits … on the back gallery and he attended to our every request.
Rachel joined us mid-meal and we enjoyed her company, her pleasant conversation and her knowledgeable answers regarding Brandon Hall and the Natchez area.
Our whole two-day experience at Brandon Hall was very relaxing with an air of southern comfort. Coffee or tea was always available. We enjoyed reading in the different rooms of the house. We took long peaceful walks around the pond and the rest of the grounds. Our pictures aren’t as good as the ones on the website, but trust me, the website is accurate.
Our second night's stay was as enjoyable and relaxing as the first.
Mike’s breakfast on the second day was different … pancakes and bacon, and it was as tasty as the first morning.
Prior to our departure, we were fortunate to be able to participate in the Natchez Fall Pilgrimage, as Brandon Hall was one of the Tour Homes. Kathy Garber, Rachel’s mom, arrived and both she and Rachel served as two of the three very knowledgeable tour guides.
My wife and I are both enthusiastic about our future visits to once again experience this beautiful home and the hospitality we found there.
Thank you for sharing this treasure with us.
Remember that it is an old home, 150+ years, that has experienced an amazingly restoration.
