“Oak Hill Inn is the best on the Great River Byway”
Reviewed June 26, 2012

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.

Room Tip: We stayed in the first floor suite. Totally charming, totally quiet. Perfect in every way!

My wife and I had the good fortune to stay for 4 nights on our road trip down the Mississippi. Doug and Donald are the best hosts you could find, quietly efficient and welcoming and all in the most perfect setting.
Natchez itself is a delight but our experience at Oak Hill was the best we have had anywhere in the world. We can only repeat what has been said and assure anybody if they are coming that way, make sure you give yourselves plenty of time for the Historic Oak Hill Inn.
Thanks!!

Room Tip: We had the Main floor bedroom and it was perfect but we are sure the upper rooms are equally good

We thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay at the Oak Hill Inn in Natchez. We took the large ground floor room which had a large, comfortable bed and a door that led out into the lovely communal library and sitting room. There are also less expensive rooms upstairs. I loved sitting and relaxing in the rocking chair on the front porch, and there's also a patio out back by a fountain.

The breakfasts are truly incredible, with different types of eggs and baked goods served on the different mornings. The owner gave all the guests a very interesting tour of the house after breakfast, explaining all the history and furnishings he'd collected.

Traveled with another couple along the Natchez trace and had reserved two rooms at this lovely B&B. We stayed in the ground floor master bedroom which is furnished with period antiques and has its own master bath with modern shower (its a remodel) no bath. This room has great charm which the upstairs bedroom totally lacks. The upper floor has two bedrooms and a shared bath, but they do not rent out both unless it is one group. The third bedroom has period furniture (dbl bed and a single bed), but our friends were given the bedroom with one double bed. The rest of the ground floor is beautifully restored with period antiques and family heirlooms from Doug's family, which Doug proudly describes when he gives a tour of the home.
Breakfast beautifully served on fine china in dining room - over abundant so that we felt wasteful as unable to eat all that (eggs benedict and french toast, fruit, banana muffins, croissants, OJ!) I think this is a routine for these two based on the reviews. Breakfast is served promptly at 8:30. I think if you have food issues you should probably let them know in advance. Doug is much friendlier then Don although they are partners. Don does not seem comfortable with guests at all. Doug however is a very gracious host, docent for his home, and informative about local attractions and restaurants.

Room Tip: The ground floor master bedroom is the best choice for period charm. Upper floor lacks charm

We traveled from Atlanta to Natchez to once again stay at the Oak HIll Inn. It is so lovely and well kept. Doug and Don couldn't be any nicer or accomodating. They go out of their way to make you feel welcome and comfortable. The breakfasts are absolutely fantastic and beautifully served on lovely china, silver, and crystal. Really, really special. The biscuits alone are truly worth the stay. I wasn't the least bit surprised to see they have been voted one of the top bed and breakfasts in the country. I'm sure we will make it there again. I can hardly wait!

I have stayed in many b&b's across the USA, and nothing compares to the Oak Hill Inn.
The location is great in beautiful Natchez Ms. with many things to do. Doug and Don are superb
hostess's. The Inn is beautifully decorated to the period. The bedrooms are very comfortable
and the breakfast is to die for.I highly recommend making a trip here.
