Jean gave an amazing tour! Way better tour guide and person to talk to than just the ones in town because she shows you a diary and other specific records as they tell you the story. It's amazing! Ray was also wonderful while we were there to experience Rosswood Plantation. The top porch where you stay for the bed and... More

We came across Rosswood by accident on our way to New Orleans from Missouri. The home is beautiful (but is starting to get a little run down) but the owner Ray was the highlight!! We were the only ones there for the tour at that time. The house is lovely and filled with amazing antiques. I can't wait for our... More

It has fourteen rooms, with fourteen-foot ceilings, ten fireplaces, columned galleries, a winding staircase, and original slave quarters.

Wonderful tour. House getting a little rundown but the antiques are definitely worth going for. A treasure trove of Finery. If you enjoy elegance, take the tour. I probably wouldn't stay the night just because it is a little dusty.

We recently spent three nights at Rosswood while attending the Spring Natchez Pilgrimage. We were first welcomed by the friendly dog. Ray Hylander, the son of the owners, greeted us. He gave us a history of the house and a tour. We stayed in one of the queen size bedrooms. In the mornings Miss Peggy serves up a wonderful breakfast... More

We drove up to the home on the way to Natchez and the sign said it was open March to Nov and open at 12:30 on Sunday, so we continued to Natchez and came back the 30 miles to find the sign that said it was open, but the gate was still closed and no one answered the door. The... More

We heard occupants inside on the ground floor but no signage that this was a B&B. Just the name Rosswood and OPEN. It wasn't. We would have liked to have seen the inside. We certainly were not made to feel welcome. In fact we felt like perhaps we had trespassed while taking photographs of the magnificent exterior.

The history of Rosswood goes back to the civil war built in 1857. Used as a hospital by the owner, took in injured soldiers both Confederate and Union. Breakfast served by Miss Peggy was exceptional. Truly a great experience to stay in such a lovely historical home.
