It's not often you get to stay in a house that's historic and elegant in itself and also full of furnishings, pictures and other objects like the 201 year old harp that are totally in keeping. Oak Hill and its maintenance as one of scores of antebellum homes in Natchez are clearly it's owners' pride and joy and we think ourselves lucky to be able to share it with them. Add to that the super-gourmet breakfast, the welcoming mint juleps and the most comfortable mattresses for miles around, and you can't go wrong.
