My wife and I traveled the Great Missiissippi River Road Byway in June, 2012 all the way from its headwaters in Minnesota to New Orleans, some 4500 miles total from our home in Florida. Along the way, as dedicated B & B'ers having stayed in them from coast to coast for many years, we stayed in several highly rated B & Bs. among them the Oak Hill Inn in Natchez. What a find! The Inn is totally charming and impeccably appointed. Our first floor suite had a memory foam queen bed, wifi, huge bath with rain shower, every little amenity one could think of and the entire house is not only beautiful but loaded with antiques. Doug McNally and his partner have gone to great detail in providing a wonderful experience for the traveler, and we truly enjoyed the hour tour we received at Doug's invitation. Our advice: skip Vicksburg and stay in Natchez at the Oak Hill Inn.
