My fiance and I are from New Jersey. We flew south to escape winter's wrath and experience southern hospitality. When planning our trip we discovered Natches, which is like the Cape May of Mississippi. We chose to stay in Riverside because of all of the great reviews.
Dorel, the owner/host extraordinaire, has done an amazing job with his splendid B&B! Riverside is absolutely stunning! It is so intricately decorated and immaculately clean! From the moment that we arrived we felt so welcome in his home! We stayed in what I call the Princess room because the bed is an 1858 ironwork masterpiece with a crown on top of the canopy. Dorel told us that it was made for a Spanish princess! We arrived at Riverside in the early evening. As soon as we dropped off our bags, Dorel asked us if we had dinner plans. Then, he recommended Castle restaurant and even helped make a reservation. When he returned, he offered us a carafe of wine, as well as a bowl of snacks. YUM! Before dinner, we spent some time relaxing in the upstairs parlor by the fireplace, which was so charming! After dinner we kept exploring Dorel's library in the upstairs parlor and we enjoyed taking a bath in our large claw foot tub! In the morning we woke up to a tray of coffee, which we drank on the balcony facing the Mississippi. Then, we took a walk on the path along the river. FInally, it was breakfast time! OMG! It was absolutely the best breakfast we've ever had. Never mind the beautifully set table, the meal was incredible! We had a ham and cheese omelet, asparagus with hollandaise sauce, the best grits ever with cheese, sausage patties, nutty dollar pancakes, a wide selection of breads and biscuits with butter and 2 types of jam, plus coffee, tea, OJ, and water. Delicious! Dorel also gave us lots of tips about what to do for the duration of our trip. We were heading to New Orleans. He was an amazing host, his price is super reasonable, and his B&B is absolutely beautiful! If you are staying in Natches you must spend the night at Riverside!
