“1st Time at a B&B”
Reviewed 12 November 2012

This was my 1st experience at a B&B. Loved it! The Sweet Cane Inn in Natchitoches has to be one of the best ever. The owners Kathy and John were always around to talk and give history of the town and the home. Their breakfasts were gourmet but simple and so delicious. We had cheesecake pancakes, quiches, strawberry cream crepes, bacon, sausage, bagels and more over two days. Wine in the late afternoons and warm cookies. The bedrooms (we had 3) were so beautiful and comfortable. Great night sleep. A little noise from the street but walking distance to the historic district which made it and ideal location. I really can not wait to go back!
Wish we could have seen the Christmas Lights and stayed for the Festival of Lights but maybe next year.

Room Tip: The Azalea and Camelia were a 2 bedroom suite which had 3 beds but a small bath. Great shower. The...

We recently stayed at the Sweet Cane Inn to celebrate my husband's aunt and uncle's 50th Wedding Anniversary - their children planned the whole celebration and choosing the Sweet Cane Inn was a fantastic idea. The Inn itself is a wonderful work of art. The love and care that has been put into restoring this lovely Victorian home is amazing. My husband and I stayed in the Azalea room and it was magnificent. The in room bath is lovely, the rice bed is beautiful and the bedding was fantastic. There were approximately 20 people from our party that stayed the night in various rooms and it was just such a wonderful time. We all enjoyed a horse drawn buggy ride around the town and points of interest were shown. When we returned, John had set up the movie parlor so we could all watch Steel Magnolias (which was filmed in Natchitoches). As our audience retired, John made sure the movie was shut down and everyone was taken care of. He also took the time to discuss the architecture of his property with us.
In the morning we feasted on a delicious breakfast of scrambled eggs, sausage, pasteries and incredible pancakes! There was also dry cereal for anyone who wanted.
We had a wonderful time and the "oldieweds" were thrilled!

Room Tip: The Oleander has an unbelievably beautiful bath! The claw footed tub is lovely and the fireplace in...

My husband and I love to stay at a B&B whenever we travel, and when we decided to visit Natchitoches I actually had a hard time picking one, there are so many to choose from!

Well, I truly believe i chose the best one..Sweet Cane Inn is very a very lovely and welcoming home and the owners are the absolute, most hospitable hosts, we've ever had! They even threw a Crawfish Boil for us! Possibly the best crawfish i've ever had! Their new chef Chris is a real darling! We had fresh home made baked cookies(with a special secret recipe) set out for us every afternoon, with an assortment of juices, teas and wines...We had an awesome home cooked breakfast each morning...juices and coffees....The home is clean as a pin...........What more can i say???
When in Natchitoches, STAY AT THE SWEET CANE INN! It's absolutely wonderful!

Room Tip: Ask for the Magnolia room,,,it has a private balcony and a newly redone bath...

I recently stayed at the renovated Sweet Cane Inn, a beautiful Victorian Inn which is a five minute walk to the historic district. My husband and I visited during the popular Christmas season before the new owners bought this property and marveled at the original architectural details. I enjoyed it then but I was blown away by the new renovations at the most recent stay. The interior is painted with period colors that show off the intricate stained glass and antiques throughout. The rooms are uncluttered , showing off the beautiful woodwork. The immaculate and elegant bedrooms all have new bedding with 400 hundred-count sheets. The large, vintage bathrooms are all renovated with modern day amenities. Beautiful paintings from local artists adorn the walls and original fireplace mantles with gorgeous porcelain inlays. It may be the most beautiful bed and breakfast I have been in, and I have stayed in a few. I slept like a baby after turning on the new flat screen television. Too comfy!

There are a lot of things to do in Natchitoches . Visit the Sweet Cane website , or ask the owners for any questions you may have. The plantation homes offer guided tours. The historic district has stores that have quality crafts and are just plain fun. The river area is newly renovated and just waiting for a lazy picnic. We ate at the Mariner restaurant (owner recommendation), which is right on the water, and has a great ambiance. Our party had a variety of tasty seafood and meat dishes. We also took a carriage ride which focused on the movie ‘Steel Magnolias”, which meandered through historic Natchitoches. Ask the owner or innkeeper to plan any excursion or party for you. They were so helpful.

Finally, the price is very reasonable considering the luxury accommodations and amenities that are offered. At 4:00 there is a wine and beer get together. Fresh homemade chocolate chip cookies, a variety of cheeses, meat and crackers, with good quality wine, bottled beer, and other drinks on ice are there for your refreshment. Our musician host has wonderful music playing in the background. Chocolates are placed on the bed and quality toiletries were available. The 8:30 am buffet breakfast included cream cheese and strawberry pancakes, eggs, bacon, bagels, Community coffee and tea, yogurt, cereal and fruit. Come when you want!! I appreciated the china that was used as well as glass decanters of a variety of fruit juices. Everything was elegant and yummy. Drop by for at least one night and enjoy southern charm, hospitality and luxurious surroundings. Pamper yourself!!!

Room Tip: The third floor is a great area for multiple visitors as it has a nice common area to hang out in.
