This was our first time staying at the Cedar Grove Mansion. We were originally supposed to stay in one of the outer homes across the street. It was very nice but once we had seen the main house we asked to change. It was no problem. We stayed in room 7 which is on the second floor. The room was nice, king size bed. Antique furniture.
Breakfast on Saturday morning was very good. Eggs, grits, fruit, bacon and biscuits along with a great little muffin. Sunday morning was a buffet and it wasn't bad at all. On Friday evening we sat at the lounge with a free glass of wine. Kenneth took exceptional care of us. Great wait person.
Saturday evening we did have an appetizer in the restaurant. The lobster ravioli was great. The jalapeno stuffed with duck and cream cheese was too hot for me to eat. Took one bite and couldn't eat the rest. We were not offered anything in it's place and still had to pay for it.
The grounds were neat, trimmed and beautiful. The pool, although we didn't use it was clean and very beautiful.
The staff was very friendly and helpful, Except for our waitress on Saturday evening. Sure missed Kenneth.
This is a great place to stay for a romantic weekend or even with your kids. Take your night time beverage and head to the third floor and sit out on the rooftop terrace. Close to downtown although not that much to do downtown. Don't expect anything to be open on Sunday unlike a lot of other tourist towns. The National Military Park is exceptional. Just bring your own water because they don't sell it inside the park.
We would stay at Cedar Grove again.

Room tip: Although we didn't see all of the rooms, I would suggest the 2nd floor. The third floor is another set of stairs but very nice also. I would think the 1st floor would be a little noisy? We were told that the rooms in the basement are pretty haunted. So that might be cool. It served as the morgue and hospital during the Civil War.

WE LOVED staying at the historic Cedar Grove Mansion Inn. The grounds are beautiful. We were in one of the Carriage House suites. The main house is still very intact, and interesting to walk around, but I have never stayed in the main house.

Stayed here in June for
First time in 5 years and found the mansion in good shape. There was a major power outage and with no hesitation was reacommodated in coachouse suite at no additional charge for entire stay. The staff was very friendly and food good in the restaurant. Highly recommend this estate for an antebellum mansion experience. Thank you Cedar Grove!

We checked into the Poolside Room only to find defective air conditioning (80 degrees inside), mold, mildew and giant bumblebees. We changed to the Robert E. Lee Suite in the main house which was much cooler, but found 7-foot ceilings, drab furnishings, grungy carpet and a bathtub with a shower hose and no shower curtain. Train horns sounded at midnight, 12:30, 2:30, 3:55, 5:00, 6:00 and 7:00. Dinner in the restaurant was less than stellar with undercooked "rice pilaf" and marginally cooked catfish with a crawfish etouffee that included, count 'em, two tiny crawdads. Breakfast at a B&B should be a great experience. It wasn't. It was a small buffet with single pans of compacted scrambled eggs, overcooked bacon, biscuits (OK) and chopped fruit. Grounds were unkempt and the pool was so dirty the health department should shut it down.

Room tip: Avoid any and all rooms. In fact, don't stay in Vicksburg. Try Clinton.

We stayed here on a Sunday night and we're looking forward to staying in the General Lee suite, it's a beautiful building with historic significance, being used by General Grant during the battle of Vicksburg. What could go wrong? Well I'm afraid the reception was not the southern hospitality we had been used to during our road trip in the area, grumpy staff who wasn't interested in welcoming guests in the slightest. The room was cold and dark and on close look it was clear it needed work done to bring it up to a satisfactory standard. Wobbly tiles and toilet, creaky old bed, dirty etc. etc. and for $300 a night the most expensive, and worst night we spent in the Deep South in a fortnight. We are in the restaurant that evening and am afraid it was just average. The breakfast not much better, just average. We won't be returning. It could have been so much better..... Disappointed!

Room tip: Choose the cheapest room if you intend visiting, you will probably be disappointed so no point paying too much
