It's a lovely Antebellum house that doubles as a B&B, so don't be surprised to find tourists peeking into your roped off room before you take possession. The location is great with the old Courthouse being only a 5 minute walk, and down town being no more than 10 minutes walk. Breakfast was slightly unusual in that there's no choice,... More

Personal and private, the ideal B&B. We went during our honeymoon and couldn't have been happier. Excellent breakfast, tea hour offered every morning and afternoon, and historic home tour included in stay. Would recommend staying in the carriage house instead of main house for extra privacy.

Thank you so much for choosing to stay with us here at Anchuca and for the wonderful review. It would really help us if you could copy and paste this review to our tripadvisor page titled Anchuca Historic Mansion & Inn. (that's our official page for the B&B) Thanks again for helping us preserve Anchuca. More

This is where I always take out-of-town guests. It is one of only 3 Vicksburg restaurants whose food I would rate as excellent and well-beyond expectations. Wonderful atmosphere in this antebellum mansion! Great drinks. Melt-in-your mouth filets, usually served with a mouth-watering sauce--but order your filet plain if you don't like a sweet sauce with your steak. I've eaten at... More

We stayed just one night, but really enjoyed the mansion. We would certainly go again. The staff was welcoming and our room was charming.

It was a nice home with a modest admission fee. You watch a brief video before your self-guided tour. It’s also a B&B and a restaurant so you really don’t get to see much of the home. The rooms upstairs were occupied with hotel guests. I didn’t think it was worth doing the tour. I didn’t stay here or eat... More

The few extra dollars I paid to stay here and sleep in such a historically significant residence was well worth it. The staff is very friendly, the food is excellent, and the accommodation is better than any Southern hotel I've stayed in. You will not miss out on luxury in these rooms or with this service. I also felt very... More

Heavily renovated home that is now a B&B complex. Interior is furnished tastefully with a mix of period items and modern items with the modern predominating. Not really worth a visit if you want an authentic period home, however looks like a very nice B&B.

Anchuca, also known as the Victor Wilson House, has survived its Civil War roots perhaps better than any other historic sites in Vicksburg. The beautiful, statuesque Greek Revival mansion located at 1010 First East Street was built in 1830. In 1840, a local merchant, Victor Wilson, bought the house. He had a two-story portico added to the front in 1847.... More

The peaceful garden augured well and we were not disappointed. The video at the start was most helpful especially because the house was crowded on our visit. It allowed us to get up close and personal to the antiques on display which otherwise would not have been possible . It also explained the history of the house which enhanced our... More

I guess when touring an old home, you never know what to expect. This was different than any I've toured before because it was also a bed & breakfast. The house was very beautiful, the grounds were too. It just didn't seem like you were able to see much of it because of guest.

Hi! I am sorry that your visit wasn't what you expected. We try to give a clear outline of what is included in the tour -- an introductory video (narrated by someone who actually lived in Anchuca as child) followed by a self-guided, self-paced tour of the Main House and grounds. When no one is staying in the two suites... More
