My parents and I stayed in the Junior cabin while traveling the Natchez Trace. French Camp is a delightful place to stay with the antique buildings and hospitality. Our cabin had one big problem with the noisy beds which made sleep difficult, but beyond that we loved the cabin and can highly recommend it. It has a kitchen area with a microwave and refrigerator, and there is a TV& VCR in the living room. The TV reception was terrible, so we enjoyed the VCR tape of "Foxfire" which is a most applicable film for staying in an antique cabin. The breakfast the next morning was a most wonderful experience ! The lady is a genuine Southern cook and served up genuine Southern food...cooked grits, biscuits, and thick bacon.
French Camp is a often overlooked gem of Americana hidden on the Natchez Trace.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- French Camp Academy’s Bed and Breakfast is one of the few B & Bs located adjacent to the Natchez Trace Parkway. In 1986, French Camp Academy moved two clerestory log cabins built between 1840 and 1870 from Eupora, Mississippi, to French Camp. They were placed side by side and joined together with an addition matching the period architecture. Some of the original pine logs are 18 inches in diameter. The inn officially began receiving visitors in March 1987. ... more less
