One of our top B&B finds ever. A lovely, intimate, thoughtfully restored property that gives the antebellum home experience along with the personal attention that makes it seem like staying with old friends. We stayed three nights in the beautifully appointed, antique-filled ground floor Beatty suite and enjoyed every minute of it. This B&B is perfect for the first time Natchez visitor (like we were) because the personable owner/host is on site and eagerly gives advice on restaurants, what house tours are a must, shopping and other sights. Awesome breakfasts (in quality, quantity and variety) beautifully served in the formal dining room. Leisurely breakfast conversation with other guests and our host made a great start to our busy days of sightseeing. The inn's location on a quiet street at the edge of downtown makes for an easy walk to many of the home tours and restaurants.
