“Great B and B”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

Great get a way weekend is to stay here. Very personable owners. Great breakfast. They go the extra step to make your stay one to remember. Will definitely stay there our next trip. The front porch is relaxing in the morning to sit and have coffee. Takes you back in time.

Room Tip: Upstairs is perfect for a family or group of girls

My wife and I stayed here for our 3rd anniversary on our first trip to Natchez and coincidentally, our first B&B stay.

The home is beautiful, the furnishings are amazing (especially those of personal significance to the owner) and the breakfast--as many have commented--is superb. In fact, the best food we experienced in Natchez was breakfast at the Inn, both mornings.

If breakfast was the best, mint juleps at five on the porch (or lush patio) would be a close second.

We highly recommend!

Hello,
we sure appreciate you taking the time to write our 402 five star review and hope you return to Oak Hill some day soon. As far as the room tip saying the upstairs is more private than our Main Suite is simply not true. Most of our guests chooses Historic Oak Hill for its elegant QUIET privacy. Our B&B has only 3 guest rooms which most people love. Your room is one of the most beautiful rooms in Natchez with a fireplace, all period furnitue and a LARGE bathroom with a large rainfall shower. A half tester bed that goes up 14 feet with large windows that look out to almost an acre of private gardens. The 10 foot doorways and 2 inch thick doors afford all the quiet privacy one needs. These guests did mention that it was their first B&B expierience so I can understand the difference between a Hotel and B&B. the wall that runs along our 60 ft. center hall is over four feet thick because there is a closet there. The rooms are so far appart that it is extremely private. My living Quarters are in the back part of the home to afford even more privacy. Surrounded by mature moss draped trees and garden and fountains make it feel you are out in the country. Thank you Doug Mauro Historic Oak Hill Natchez M.S.

I want to say that I would travel to Natchez just to stay in this bed and breakfast. The room was comfortable and airy, and the breakfasts were simply the best my wife and I have ever had at any bed and breakfast. Doug and Donald were the perfect hosts with excellent suggestions about restaurants and sites to visit. The tour of their house with its numerous antiques was a highlight of our trip. Their hospitality made this a superb place to stay.

What a wonderful visit we had to Natchez thanks to our choice to stay at Oak Hill. The house was beautiful and the garden was worthy of any magazine. Our visit began with fabulous cookies and the best mint juleps. The owners were very welcoming and shared many tips with us. Our stay was capped off by a delicious breakfast that rivaled any of the fine dining establishments that we have visited - and we are from Louisiana so that is saying a lot! Thank you Doug and Don for making our anniversary trip extra special!

Everywhere you go in Natchez is imbued with an air of nostalgia, but rare is the accommodation that puts you right in the middle of this history. Oak Hill is one of these rare properties. My wife and I stayed at Oak Hill for our anniversary, and we loved every moment. The inn came highly recommended by work associates, and now we know why! Despite being a tad late on arrival, Doug whipped up a couple of icy mint juleps as we took in the soft evening air. Quick to offer a chocolate cookie and assist with dinner reservations, our gracious host got our evening off to a great start. We were pleased with the spacious, modern bathroom, which made it easy to get ready for dinner. We slept soundly in our room, notwithstanding the quiet, charming creaks of this nearly 180 year old house.

We woke with the sun the following morning, and lounged on the antique furniture in our room. Hot coffee was ready early, and we peeked outside at the humid dawn. At 8:30, breakfast was served in the main dining room, and it was outstanding. Sweet, savory, and always decadent, the meal was served on antique china, complementing the beautiful decor. Doug was our gracious host at breakfast, regaling us with stories of both the house and Natchez. After we finished, he guided us around the property with a comprehensive and complimentary tour. The house is full of beautiful historic pieces from the world over, each with a unique story. Despite this, the pieces feel very much part of the house, not exhibits behind museum glass.

A trip to Natchez is very much a journey back in time, and a stay at the Historic Oak Hill Inn only adds to this feeling. Some B&Bs allude to this history, while others boast an impressive collection of antiques that they keep safely out of the reach of guests. Oak Hill puts visitors right in the middle of this history, exposing you to the sights, sounds, and mystery of the Old South, and addressing your every need along the way.

This is definitely the place to stay when visiting Natchez. The house is out of this world fantastic as is the surrounding gardens. All the rooms are decked with original antique furniture and the beds themselves are very comfortable. Particular highlights were the Mint Julep cocktails served in the afternoon on the outside patio, the fantastic cooked breakfast of Eggs Benedict and French toast, and the optional tour of the house which was a real treat. Thank you Doug and Don for such a lovely stay. Our only regret is that we could not stay longer.

When making travel plans for Natchez, Mississippi, Oak Hill Inn is a must if you are looking for perfect bed and breakfast accommodations. The house has been beautifully restored and the grounds are meticulously maintained. The back patio is a perfect place to sip one of their cool mint juleps and relax to sound of the fountain flowing into the fish pond. If you re lucky, Evangeline the cat will stop by for a visit. Our room on the main floor was spotless and very comfortable. And the breakfast - oh my! Doug and Don are consummate hosts and have created a delightful haven for the traveler. I wish we could have stayed longer!
