I have stayed at Oak Hill Inn twice within a two month span. The first time was with my husband over Labor Day Weekend. Unlike me, my husband is a Natchez virgin, and someone who typically doesn't like the B&B scene. I also stayed 10/10-10/15 over Fall Pilgrimage with my mother, sister-in-law, and my boss. Both stays were absolutely fantastic, and the first even made a believer out of my husband regarding the whole B&B experience.
My husband and I stayed in the immaculate downstairs suite. The room is spacious and exquisitely furnished. The bed amazingly comfortable, and the shower (my personal favorite feature) is to die for. My second trip was upstairs, with equally fantastic accommodations.
The rooms, though, are just one part of the experience. Doug and Don are the most amazing hosts. From the homemade, delicious breakfasts, the mint juleps, chocolate chip cookies and their unending dedication in making every guest feel like royalty goes above and beyond any other B&B experience you'll have. Whether you're a Natchez veteran, or a first-timer like my husband, the hosts never once make you feel like just another tourist. Actually, if you're anything like me, you'll leave feeling more like family.
