My wife, sister-in-law, and I spent two nights here as part of a road trip. All in all, it was a pleasant stay. We had the two upstairs bedrooms, which meant that we had the entire second floor to ourselves.
The interior of the house is lovely, if a bit fussy in a Victorian sort of way. The furnishings are pretty, but there is a lack of comfortable seating inside. The entire interior of the house is well kept and clean.The upstairs balconies (front and back) were great sitting places and offered privacy for us. The front balcony is sloped, so a bit less comfortable, but with an incredible view. The river side garden outside the main floor is absolutely beautiful and has the best view of the river in Natchez--the highlight of the house. The rooms were nice and the bathrooms were excellent and roomy--a nice surprise in an adapted old home. The beds, however, were uncomfortable--the lowlight of the house. Ours kind of sagged to the middle, lacked support, and was small for two people.
Durrell is a gracious host and just eccentric enough to be interesting without being unpleasant. The food was plentiful, but unremarkable in quality; it wasn't bad, just so-so.
The outside of the house is lovely, but in need of some attention. The house is located on a high bluff overlooking the river in an old (safe) neighborhood, with a mix of beautiful restored old homes and some that were decaying and badly in need of restoration. A pedestrian trail/sidewalk runs along the edge of the bluff just outsiide the garden fence and runs all the way to downtown Natchez, just a short walk away. It offers a great opportunity for a lovely evening walk.
The price was extremely reasonable. We enjoyed our stay there and would definitely go back.
