“Beautiful Mansion with a Beautiful View”
Reviewed July 17, 2012

The tour is about half an hour. You get to see the first and second floor. All the rooms are furnished. The guide was quite knowledgeable and pleasant. You can even volunteer to play the grand piano (when asked). The view from the balcony is a grand view of the Mississippi River. This mansion is well worth the admission price.

“Worth the trip”
Reviewed July 17, 2012

The tour is worth the price on a nice day if you do nothing more than stand on the balcony and look out over the Mississippi. We parked in the parking lot and headed straight to the gift shop. Most of these homes ask that you buy tickets and or check in at the gift shop. Tours are on the 1/2 hour or hour depending on the home. Its all pretty standard fare and if you go to the visitors center in Natchez when you first arrive they will help you plan out a schedule for your day based on what types of things matter to you most. Want to see slave quaters- go to Melrose, want to learn about the Mexican American War - go to Monmoth etc.

Overall, the house is well kept, the DAR strives to put it in historical context, the furnishings are lovely, but the house lacks the great backstory of a place like Monmouth. I loved that the newspaper they had laid out was an original from the first day of the Battle of Gettysburg- I just wish they had the paper protected instead of exposed to the open air. You'd think the DAR would know better. The piano is tuned and open for anyone who plays - which added a nice touch to the tour.

“Bad bad bad”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

We drove 2 1/2 hrs in a bad thunderstorm to see this, got lost, finally made it, got drenched running from the car to the site, went to the door closest to the parking lot (no signs telling you where the tour entrance is!!!), was told to walk in the rain to the other door, made it there at 12:04 to have the door literally slammed in our faces with, "THE TOUR STARTS ON THE HOUR! YOU SHOULD'VE BEEN HERE ON TIME!" When we BEGGED to be let in, we were told, "NO! You've already missed half the history!" I looked at my watch and said, "so the tour is only 8 minutes long, since you say you're 1/2 way through?" and the short, rude, inconsequential little man slammed the door in our faces. RUDE RUDE RUDE RUDE. We found other things to do.

“So authentic”
Reviewed July 13, 2012

The DAR has done a very commendable job of maintaining this house. How fortunate to have the authentic furnishings. Jac was our docent and did an excellent job, thorough, clever and engaging.
