Mississippi Manor is a beautiful old house with gloriously high ceilings and copious amounts of hard wood that was painstakingly refurbished. The rooms are probably some of the most spacious I have seen in most any B&B. We stayed in the Becky Thatcher Suite and the bathroom was so large--two sinks and a two person jacuzzi--I felt like a Dutchess. When I sat in bed putting on lotion, I glanced out the window to see the Mississippi River. (Fair warning, if the leaves are on the trees, you won't be able to see it.)
The whole house has a positive energy that put a bounce in my step moments after I arrived and long after I left. I loved going up and down the wooden staircase and watching the squirrels through the large windows during breakfast.
The downtown area with shops and restaurants is in walking distance just a few blocks down the street.
Florence was a wonderful innkeeper offering just the right amount of pleasant conversation and just the right amount of privacy. She also made a wonderful cinnamon bread french toast with yogurt butter and maple syrup. Mmmm... that house smelled good in the morning.
