The Bazsinsky House Bed and Breakfast is really a delightful place to stay for many reasons. The large historical two story home by all rights probably would have been bombed during the Civil War except that Union Troops were being held as hostages right across the street in The Old Courthouse and Grant spared the Courthouse. So how is that for history? Pretty Cool. After looking at the possible places that we could stay in Vicksburg, I realized it was either a Bed and Breakfast or a more traditional arrangement that serves a breakfast that tastes like plastic. There are casino hotels near the expressway about a 15 minute drive away, but we were there to enjoy historic Vicksburg and the Vicksburg Military Park. And the Bazsinsky House B&B turned out to be the perfect place to stay. I read the reviews on Trip Advisor and felt comfortable with my decision.
The B&B is located right in the heart of the historic district of Vicksburg on a bluff looking down over the river. The home has two guest rooms on the second floor. There is a elevator inside the home. The décor and furnishings are really quite lovely. So you can pretend like it is your home for the weekend. We were made to feel very welcome right away.
Our room had a large four poster bed and a smaller second bed and a private full bath with a Jacuzzi tub. The rooms & baths have been remodeled. There is another beautifully appointed room available too. We enjoyed the full southern breakfast every morning. It was a bargain and delicious. David is a good cook. The guests have access to the whole house. We spent most of our time on the second floor, and some leisure time on the first floor. The second floor has its own kitchen and dining room. There are two sets of stairs that access the second floor. Guests are encouraged to use the kitchen to make coffee any time and store small items in the frig upstairs or the frig downstairs. The formal dining room upstairs where you have breakfast overlooks the river and is very comfortable. There is a washer & dryer available for guests if needed.
The room was cool and quiet. Each room has a thermostat. The beds were comfortable. We were impressed that there was a floor fan stored in the closet in case you want white noise.
We parked our car right out front on the street one night and also off street on the side of the home in the garden area. The home seemed very safe and secure and has a side entrance that guests can use. There were no offensive smells to deal with. The owner owns two little dogs that yap when you come back in the evening; but they the yapper dogs live outside.
The home is located on a corner and we walked to most of our restaurants. David can recommend restaurants and answer all your questions. Try to visit the Old Courthouse museum across the street up the hill.
We really enjoyed Vicksburg and the Bazsinsky House and getting to know the two gentlemen who run the House. We felt like we were home away from home.
