Although Brandon Hall is a beautiful property, the lack of hospitality on every level unfortunately overrides its beauty. Never got a hello or goodbye. You’re on your own here even to answer your own questions!
We loved staying at Brandon Hall for our first anniversary! It was so lovely, peaceful, and charming! Beautiful home and a fantastic location! Wish the regular breakfast had returned as that would have made it even better! (Still providing a breakfast basket instead of the fancy cooked breakfast) Overall wonderful experience! We stayed in the Sarah Elisa Room!
My 3 sisters and I spent the night at the Cottage. Up on arriving, we were awed at the beauty of the main house and the beautiful grounds. The cottage was comfortable, and we enjoyed sitting on the front porch with a cute lab and 3 cats who made themselves comfortable on our laps. I’m glad we all liked animals, because they were sticking around whether we liked them or not! There were a few disappointing things. First, there was no one around to greet us or send us off. Next, the “ continental breakfast” was a basket of a few apples, oranges and 4 store bought muffins that were there when we arrived. It was not the usual B&B experience we are used to. No owners, no groundskeeper, .... no one. It was really weird. I finally ventured out to see if so could find a 4th coffee cup, and entered through the back door to a fabulous home, with beautiful furnishings, and a big fat visitor book to welcome us. But still no real, live person! The dining room was set beautifully with china, and all I could think about was how wonderful it would have been to have been served a lovely breakfast in that beautiful room, instead of the basket of a totally unappetizing basket of boring, packaged store bought muffins. We expected more for the $298 one night stay. It appeared that someone may live in the basement, and we saw lights down there, but again, they didn’t find it necessary to make an appearance. We will be returning to Natchez for the pilgrimage next year, but will not be staying here. There are a few other things, but I will leave my review as a 3 star and let the owners know of some other issues.…
Absolutely a wonderful historic post covid vacation for us to get away from the hustle of every day life! Very clean and maintained piece of American history. If privacy, peaceful relaxation and unwinding is what you want then this is the place. Short 15 to 20 minute drive to Natchez. We really enjoyed our 3 night stay.
Brandon Hall is such a special place to stay. We experienced a piece of history in this beautifully maintained Antebellum house. The furnishings are gorgeous and the entire place is immaculate. Wish we had been provided some information on the history of the house. Would have made our experience even better.
