“We feel we are visiting a very warm and gracious friend with a beautiful home.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2010

This has been at least our sixth trip to Natchez & Riverisde. We do not even look at any oher place to book a room/or B&B. Each time since we visit, we feel we are visiting a friend. Mr. Durrell Epperson welcomes you at the door, invites you to sit down on the porch and watch the sunset with a glass of wine. In the morning once Mr. Epperson hears our footsteps, there is a knock at the door. When we open it, there is a beautiful silver tray with coffe cups, pot and "the fixings". The breakfast is delicious and plentiful. He is very gracious,knowledgeble of the area and history. He has a wonderful sense of humor. The B&B itself, is very beautiful and inviting with a breathtaking view of the river, MS bridge along with sunrises and sunsets. When we leave there are hugs & kisses goodbye and looking forward to our return. True southern charm!

The approach to the house is attractively planted. In front is a lovely brick patio with 2 fountains, perched over a cliff, with a breath-taking view of the Mississippi. The house is a jewel, painstakingly restored and furnished with period pieces by host Durell. (The accomodations are also very comfortable). The host is gracious, delightful -- full of humorous and informative stories about the house, town of Natchez and its people. Several good restaurants are a 10 minute walk down the path which runs between the house and the river. We enjoyed the informal "Cotton Alley Cafe". In the morning our host served us the breakfast of B&B breakfasts with several unexpected (and delicious additions) to the eggs, sausage and home-made biscuits.

A truly wonderful place. Beautiful home, gorgeous antiques, tremendous view, oustanding food, and the absolute best host ever. Durrell Epperson is so accomodating. He can entertain for hours with his wonderful stories. He makes you feel like you have know him forever. The wine is ever flowing. It is more like you are staying with a friend than at a bed and breakfast. We will go back soon and often.

This was a first trip for me without my husband - my girlfriends came with me to help get
over the lose of him. I love the old south and Riverside B & B helped me to reenact what
it must have been like. The house is fantastic with its furnishings and service. It's Durell
that makes the stay so special. Waking up to have coffee at your doorstep to start the day
and then a breakfast that is nothing like you would ever find anywhere. You'll be
dieting once you leave. Durell is a wonderful storyteller and you literally have to tear
yourself a way to get anything else done. Also, he is a wealh of information on the
area. Go see for yourself.

If you are looking for the charm that the historic homes bring, an UTMOST SUPERB Host, a bedroom with unbelievable comfort and a breakfast that surpasses any one else's, stay at the Riverside Bed & Breakfast in Natchez, MS! It's within walking distance to amost everything! We stayed there April 23 thru 25, 2010 for our Aniversary weekend and had a wonderful time. The owner, Durell Epperson was unbelievable! Charming, funny and full of the most intersting stories. As gracious as a host could be and is a joy to be around. You will have a friend when you leave! We sure do! Loved our weekend and we will return!

This was with no doubt the best place to stay in Natchez, the breakfast was just outstanding and elegantly performed by one of the best host we could have every found!
A beautiful home and decorated with fantastic appeal for the southern charm. The view was the best you could find for being right on the river!

My second stay here, my friends' first. They were enchanted with the breathtaking view and the magnificent furnishings and antiques. Riverside truly has a positive energy that renews the spirit and relaxes the mind. Durrell is a most gracious and knowledgeable host. Especially the "Eternal Spring" at sunset on the balcony was just what the doctor prescribed for stress and rejuvenation from the rat race. He made our reservations for dinner at King's Tavern, which serves an awesome prime rib. The beds are like heaven and the rooms are quiet. After dinner we returned to the house and sat out on the upstairs balcony looking over the river till after midnight, feeling the cool breeze and contemplating the lights on the majestic bridge. We hated to go inside but the need for sleep in the canopied beds finally prevailed. Be sure to be good and hungry for breakfast because you will NOT be disappointed. Where else can you get all the OJ, Diet Coke, hot tea you want with the same meal. I recommend Riverside Bed and Breakfast to any of my friends.
