“Best BnB”
Reviewed March 19, 2014

Doug Cousineau is the best, the ultimate bed and breakfast host: kind, knowledgeable, helpful, thoughtful, generous. Because I had trouble climbing stairs, he gave me a first floor room. His knowledge of Mississippi history, restaurants, attractions and customs really helps the traveler decide where to go, what to do.

I've travelled to Vicksburg on business four times and stayed at Baer House twice. The elegance of the house is matched only by the generous spirit of the host. Doug Cousineau went out of his way to make an early breakfast. He offered great tour guide suggestions, and even provided a bicycle for touring the military park. This is a terrific place, and as good a B&B value as I've ever come across.

So happy to have you back again! I look forward to your next visit. I do have bikes or kayaks you can rent by the hour or the day, so next time you can explore around here by KAYAK!! As you saw, the Vicksburg National Military Park is a perfect place to ride or run, and the entrances are just a few blocks from the Inn. I also have maps that cyclists and runners can use for route choices. The beautiful Natchez Trace is also just a short distance from the Baer House and Vicksburg.

My wife and I recently stayed a couple of nights in Vicksburg in the middle of a several day tour of the Natchez Trace running from Jackson to Natchez. The Inn was definitely one of the best B & B's we've stayed in on any of our US travels. The Bonnie Blue room was quite spacious and afforded access to a semi-private balcony for sittin' and sippin'. Appointments were appropriate for a first class Inn and were consistent with the time period represented. The hosts were quite knowledgeable in area history and very willing to share that knowledge. And best of all, the bed was wonderfully comfortable!

The Bonnie Blue room IS a very comfortable and spacious room - one of our best values! The bed in the Scarlett room is identical to the Bonnie Blue's and also has many positive comments. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and I hope to see you back to Vicksburg soon - Perhaps for some great BLUES MUSIC, as we have some terrific musicians playing in town.

We arrived in Vicksburg and were amazed at the beauty of the Baer House Inn. We enjoyed Doug's stories, wonderful breakfasts and conversation. We staying in the Mei Ling suite which was spacious, clean and very comfortable. We couldn't ask for more.

What a delightful stay we had at Baer House Inn!! We treated our parents to a long weekend in Vicksburg as their Christmas present. Thus, we wanted a special place to spend some time with them. Knowing that we arrived several hours earlier than our 4 pm check-in, we wanted only to leave one of our cars at the inn so we could begin sight-seeing in one vehicle. Doug was home and was all too happy to accommodate our request. After seeing some of the sights of Vicksburg, we found our way back to Baer House to check in. Check in was quick and we were shown to our rooms - Bonnie Blue and Scarlet Suites.

At the evening social hour, we met the other guests, enjoyed some refreshments, and were entertained by Doug's commentary about the Baer House history - along with some history of Vicksburg and the War Between the States.

Our rooms were roomy and quite comfortable. The beds provided several nights of peaceful sleep. Hot water in the shower was quick and lasted throughout our showers. (And the inn was full for two of our nights).

The breakfasts were delicious and well-portioned. I enjoyed having fresh fruit each morning!

As for the extras:
Doug's parents were visiting, so we were able to meet them. They were delightful and entertaining.
I was sick one evening and into the next day. Doug was so kind to offer and prepare oatmeal & a tray of breads for me. It was so quiet during the day, I was able to sleep and recuperate.
Baer House is in a great location. Though our parents are not as ambulatory as they once were, we could have walked most any place had we wanted to.

Truly, we would have stayed longer at Baer House if our calendars had allowed. We will certainly recommend Baer House Inn to our family and friends & we will stay there again if the opportunity to visit Vicksburg arises.

Room Tip: The Scarlet Suite was great. Our parents commented that the sun came in the bay window in the mornin...

We stayed in the Bonnie Blue room. It was very comfortable and quiet. Breakfast was a fruit parfait, shiird, and homemade sweet bread. Hosts were very friendly and we felt very much at home. Internet is fast and free. Room rates are very reasonable. And yes it is haunted, I'll just leave it at that.

Room Tip: Bonnie Blue was a great room, with private bath. The pineapple room had a additional single bed that...

We love staying here! Lucky to get the Pineapple room, bath across hall for our own use made room reasonable. California price would be double ! Doug the owner's mom Lois took care of us. She showed us every room available, and graciously gave us a thorough historical tour, which is a tour non-guests pay for. The breakfast was lovely, taking our diabetes into account, and wine hour was also nice. And Lois had great suggestions for food, entertainment and sightseeing. Neighborhood? Safe to have sheriffs across the street is how I look at it!
