“Best weekend ever!”
Reviewed June 8, 2014

The Devereaux Shields B and B is the most beautiful, quaint little place! This was our first experience with a bed and breakfast and I think we'll never turn back! The breakfast was great and Ron and Eleanor made us feel right at home. This experience was well worth the money and Natchez offered a lovely, relaxing historical experience! Thank you Ron and Eleanor! We WILL be back!

Service was courteous. Ron is friendly and knowledgeable about the goings on in Natchez, recommended some excellent places to eat. Facilities are clean and comfortable. We had more room than we needed. Breakfast each morning was good, and the grounds were peaceful. I would stay here again.

Aunt Clara's Cottage is a great place to spend some time. Accommodations and attention to detail are well thought out. From the bath towels to the sheets to an awesome breakfast! Ron and Eleanor are excellent hosts. Highly recommend this house for your stay.

We stayed in the gallery room Memorial Day weekend. The room (actually a 2 room suite) was very spacious and comfortable. Beautifully decorated historic houe. Private front balcony was nice place to read or have coffee. The backyard is well landscaped and had several fountains, seating areas and was really inviting. Breakfasts were great--one day eggs benedict casserole and the next, a peach French toast--both really tasty. Ron and Eleanor were friendly and helpful with reservations, recommendations ,etc.

This is by far the best b&b we have ever stayed in. We had the Elmo room in Aunt Clara's cottage and it was huge. The bed was amazing and everything was so clean. The breakfasts were fantastic but most of all the owners Ron and Eleanor go out of their way to make your visit perfect. They know all the Pisces to send you, will make the reservations or will take the time to just plain chat with you. The people you meet are also great and there is nothing like a glass out on the verandah keeping cool

The accommodations were entirely in keeping with the expectations that one would have for a first-class B&B. Our room in Aunt Clara's cottage was spacious and very nicely decorated. The staff was friendly and congenial and the breakfast was very nice. Unfortunately, we were able to stay only one night.

In particular, we very much appreciated the attention that was paid to us by host Ron Fry when we first arrived. He went out of his way to describe the history of the home and cottage, to describe the amenities available at the property and to suggest area activities that might possibly be of interest during our brief stay.

The house and cottage are located in a pleasant section of Union Street -- an easy walk to downtown Natchez and also an easy walk to a "bluff walk" overlooking the Mississippi River.

We highly recommend the Devereaux Shields Home.

A classy establishment indeed, in a beautiful town. the house is a fine old mansion. The proprietor, Ron, is very helpful and informative. Breakfasts are in his other house across the road, called Aunt Clara's Cottage, and are not to be missed.
