Charming Victorian B&B with reasonable rates. The hosts who went out of their way to make us feel welcome and comfy. Great breakfast. Many sights within walking distance. We were in the first room (upstairs), big enough for our luggage plus a more that roomy bathroom. My personal drawback was street noise. But I’m really sensitive to noise, so if...

A very nice Victorian era house (built in 1881 I assume). Our room had a nice 4 poster bed and a large bathroom. Everything was very clean. The wrap-around porch was great for sipping the complementary wine in early evening. As noted in other reviews, a very nice breakfast. A good location in general, and very close to Rosalie (one...

Pros: Excellent location, half a block from the bluff, almost next door to Rosalie mansion and the Pig Out Inn Barbecue (both highlights of our trip). Large, immaculate rooms with nice private baths. Great breakfast, especially the blueberry pancakes. Hosts are very knowledgeable about historic preservation and very helpful about sightseeing. We had a great time in Natchez and would...

The Wensel House was highly recommended by a friend and even exceeded our expectations. Lovely and spacious room and outstanding and knowledgeable innkeepers. The location couldn't be better and the breakfast was wonderful. Be sure to check out the "before" photos of the house. The owners have done an amazing job of restoration.

After a long road trip through a 500 year storm in southern Louisiana, we found refuge at the 1888 Wensel House B&B. On our way to the B&B, I called the innkeeper, Ron, and inquired whether we could leave our bags when we arrive at 10:00 a.m. Imagine my surprise when he told me that the would leave a key...

Ron, the innkeeper, was a true delight! He is incredibly knowledgeable about the area and the history of the city. We stayed in the First Room. It was spacious, comfortable, and very clean. The downtown location made it easy to get anywhere we wanted to go. The breakfast was VERY good and plentiful! We will be returning in the future!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The restored Victorian house is conveniently located for walking, being only a block from the park along the edge of the park overlooking the river and only 4 blocks from the center of town. The three guest rooms are on the 2nd floor. Each has 2 beds (Queen & Single) and a private "en suite" bathroom adjoining just that room. A full breakfast is freshly-cooked each morning (eggs, bacon, sausage, grits, home-made biscuits, blueberry pancakes, fresh fruit, orange juice, & coffee or tea). Wine, soft drinks, and fresh fruit are gratis and are available any time. You help yourself to Franzia Chardonnay in a box in the refrigerator and to soft drinks and purified water and ice in the bar at the foot of the stairs. Your hosts enjoy providing you with guidance on what to see and where to eat and drink. A free, small, secluded, private, on-site parking lot is located behind the house, at the end of Wensel Street. ... more   less
