I just came back from a long weekend at Bonne Terre. Most of my visit was with family in Memphis but I decided to stay in the "outskirts" of town. I found that the location to both the airport an downtown Memphis to be a breeze (20 minutes to Memphis, 15 mins to the airport). I remember turning into the driveway off of Church road feeling like I had stepped onto a movie set. The property is breathtaking and you immediately feel like you have been transported to a very special place. I certainly didn't feel like I was in Mississippi. The grounds are gorgeous. I am surprised at how few pictures the website has of the property because I feel like it's the biggest attraction to this place. The room I stayed in was the Heather suite. I enjoyed the location, it was in the back of the house and had views of both a private pond and the pool. I liked this because some of the rooms face the driveway and another beautiful pond but I like that my balcony was more private. I have never stayed at an Inn before so I was unsure of the "rules". I checked in after 7:30pm which worked out ok since the restaurant was still open. I am glad I didn't check in later or I wouldn't have had a room. I did see another couple trying to check in but the office had already closed for the day and the restaurant wasn't open yet so they didn't seem too pleased about waiting around for someone to help them. I only found a few things frustrating about my visit. The first was no one ever seems to answer the phone at this place. It took 2 days for someone to respond to a message I left to make a reservation and the evening I was coming in I called to let them know I was arriving after 7pm and no one answered the phone. I do understand that I called after office hours but the restaurant on site was open and no one answered the phone there either. I just found it strange that a place wouldn't respond to voice messages sooner and wouldn't have a way for customers to reach them at a reasonable hour of the day. The other thing was that almost none of the rooms have a TV. This is probably a good thing since the noise is probably too much for the buildings but it would have been nice to have had the option to watch at my discretion.The owners Bob and Emily were both very nice and accommodating. The breakfast that is included is awesome certainly not anything like a food service breakfast at a hotel. I walked the property and all the bedrooms. The entire place is completely charming. My husband and I thought this would be our first and last visit to the Memphis area and we have decided we would definitely make the trip again just to be able to go back to Bonne Terre. We fell in love with this place, thank you!
