Beautiful house, awesome service. Ron was really helpful. The location is good. You'll find everything you may need in the big and white room, beautifully decorated, and in the common areas. The breakfast is great. Thanks Ron and Mimi for your great care.

We will highly recommend this b&b with a cosy atmosphere. The rooms are beautiful, quiet, big and comfortable. The rest of the house too! The couple who runs it are so friendly and knowledgable. They sat with us during breakfast- sharing stories from Mississippi and their interesting views of the US in general. We felt so welcome and were a... More

Ron, the innkeeper, was a true delight! He is incredibly knowledgeable about the area and the history of the city. We stayed in the First Room. It was spacious, comfortable, and very clean. The downtown location made it easy to get anywhere we wanted to go. The breakfast was VERY good and plentiful! We will be returning in the future!

The Oak Room that we stayed in was very comfortable. The breakfasts were great. The location was impeccable. Parking on the street was no problem even during the Easter holiday. We enjoyed being able to walk through the downtown. The carriage tours on the corner were also fun. But all that pales compared to hosts Ron and Mimi. My husband... More

We had a great time in the kitchen making biscuits, didn't we. I'm glad you found the biscuit production interesting. We love visiting with our guests at breakfast. Though we laugh a lot, we also learn so much about the world that way. Thanks for sharing your experience with others who are looking for a place to stay in Natchez.... More

We ran a bit late, but Ron made us feel welcome immediately. He got us settled quickly and recommended a restaurant. He and his wife Mimi are extremely knowledgable about the history of Natchez and we had some delightful conversations. The location is excellent. The bedroom and bathroom are spacious. The breakfast was delicious.
