    Beautiful!!
    Beautiful Mansion. If you were to pay to see one mansion in Natchez - this would be it!. All the guides are dressed in period costumes. Can go outside to see the kitchen. Kitchens were outside because of fear of fire. Beautiful home and grounds!

    Beautiful Rosalie
    We had a wonderful tour guide at Rosalie who told of so many details of the families who built and lived in this beautiful house. We were given time to see everything although we were in a tour of 14 or so people. The gift shop and grounds are beautiful and parking was plentiful, some of which was shaded.

    Must See This One!
    The Rosalie is a beautifully maintained home with original furnishings. It has a beautiful view from the porches and grounds of the Mississippi River. Our tour guide, Betty, was very knowledgeable and fun. This home is a most see if you love historic homes.

    Elegant Mansion Beautiful
    Elegant Mansion built in 1823 by Peter Little for his wife Eliza. Mansion is named for the fort that was built there earlier by the French. Home is operated by DAR and is well preserved. Has period furnishings and beautiful landscaping. I wanted to curl up with a book under one of the trees in the yard.

    Gorgeous, gorgeous!!
    We saw several mansions/plantations on our trip, I think this one was the most beautiful!! All of the rooms have wonderful period pieces of furniture. The kitchen and larder are located in another building behind the mansion as was the custom then. General Grant used the mansion as his headquarters during the Civil War. It is now owned and maintained by the Daughters of the American Revolution. I would definitely recommend stopping here.

    Beautiful !
    As you enter this well preserved antebellum mansion, you step back in time to the mid 1800’s. The home contains an impressive collection of furnishings true to the era…many original to the house. Our guides, Barbara and Sylvia were wonderful and especially knowledgable. Shout out to the DAR for their efforts in preserving Rosalie in such a wonderful fashion.

My cousin and I visited the Rosalie Mansion on Monday, June 14th. We had some leftover time in the afternoon and tried to call to see if tours were continuing. No one answered, so we drove over and went in the gift shop. The lady there gladly rang us up and after taking the money stated in a not so friendly and loud voice, “you better RUN because the tour has probably already started”. It was just a few minutes after the hour so we felt it was acceptable if it had, we had probably not missed much. We knocked on the door and a lady cracked the door open. She immediately told us the tour had started and we said it was fine, then she told us no pictures could be taken inside the house. We joined the group and there was a man guiding the downstairs tour. He seemed nice and was informative. The upstairs tour was led by the lady who answered the door. She seemed less than thrilled to be there. She led us out on the balcony upstairs and said we take pictures there as it was a pretty view of the river. A man offered to take mine and my cousin’s picture on my phone. As he took the picture and gave my phone back, the tour guide was leading us back inside. After I walked inside, I looked at my phone to save the picture as it had been taken on snapchat. The tour guide said in a very rude voice, “MAM, YOU CAN’T TAKE PICTURES IN HERE”. First of all I wasn’t taking pictures, I was simply saving one that had just been taken outside. Secondly, I am an adult and do not appreciated being humiliated. By nature, I am a rule follower and I heard her when she cracked the door downstairs to let us in and stayed there could be no pictures.
I spoke with the lady after the tour and mentioned to her she might want to consider pulling someone to the side instead of assuming they are taking pictures and embarrassing them in front of a group.
Save your money and spend it at Longwood, where southern hospitality is still practiced!!

We travel internationally and like to visit "stately homes' . We were looking forward to the Fall Plantation Tour at Rosalie. and arrived early from our drive from Texas. My wife and I are both retired educators , we felt the 2 men (no women in Southern costumes as we had anticipated) who showed us the 2 floors (one each) only wanted to recite about the furniture in detail rather than paint a picture of the history of place and people who live d there, last November we had a splendid example how to guide at Beavoir in southern MS. Now why no internal photos? very old fashioned. and the description on website gave impression we could tour gardens overlooking MS river but the gates were locked.

Not like many of the other homes visited during the Spring Pilgrimage, this was one of the better ones. Grounds and the house were well maintained and the Guides were very knowledgeable. The overlook of the Mississippi River was breathtaking.. Highly recommend this site to visit..

Rosalie is a beautiful piece of Southern history. The mansion still has most of the original furnishings that predate the Civil War. The staff and tour guides were very friendly and knowledgeable about both the mansion and the families. Don’t forget to ring the old ship’s bell when you leave!

We were very pleased with the tour given by Becky and Harry the day we stopped to visit Natchez, MS. We picked this mansion from all the others since it said it had a view of the river from its grounds. And the grounds were lovely and the view good. The gift shop is a nice one too. The tour was informative and entertaining and we loved this mansion and all the beautiful original furnishings. I especially loved seeing the doll collections.

We enjoyed our tour of Rosalie during the Spring Pilgrimage. Our guide was very informative and well acquainted with the history of the original and subsequent owners. Rosalie is open year round and highly recommended for a visit.

If you love history and you love beautiful homes and you appreciate a well-run operation, you'll truly enjoy a visit to Rosalie.
Our guide (I think his name was Douglas, but ...) was terrific, and made the people who had occupied the house on the bluff overlooking the Mississippi come alive for us!
The furnishings are exceptional, and the visit was very evocative for us ... I subsequently found out (though it wasn't mentioned in the tour) that Gen. U.S. Grant spent at least some time in the house, as it was taken over by the Union army and used as headquarters in that region. (They let the widow and her daughter stay on, however!)
Well worth a visit.
