Violet Hill Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #3 of 23 Natchitoches B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 February 2013

Such a beautiful home! Porches, front and back with plenty of chairs and even porch swings. The back porch looks out over the peaceful Cane River Lake, the front porch was the best place in town to watch the Mardi Gras Parade. We hadn't even planed on this so it was a wonderful treat. Charles is the Innkeeper and Chef. He is awesome and takes care of your every need. The 2 course breakfast was "OUT OF THIS WORLD!" We are already planning to return to Natchitoches, just to stay again at the VIOLET HILL!

Room Tip: I didn't stay there but the downstairs room just off the parlor, that was a library looked to be...

Wow! What can I say? First of all Violet Hill is in a wonderful location just steps from all the restaurants and shops in Natchitoches. Secondly, the house is beautiful. And the cliche--best for last. Charles and his breakfast--amazing! Blueberry bread pudding, mini-omelets, and cheesy grist with homemade biscuits, a neverending cup of delicious coffee and personal service. Charles is charming and funny and a wonderful cook. What a wonderful experience!

Room Tip: Call early!

We have not been frequent guests at B&Bs over the years because we just never thought they were worth the extra money. Charles and the Violet Hill in Natchitoches have changed out minds. Never have we been more pampered, catered to, and spoiled more than we were this last weekend. Natchitoches has plenty to see and do but we did not want to leave the house. The breakfasts were an event, not just a meal. from the place settings, to the coffee, and the juice, and the appetizer (yes an appetizer for breakfast) thru the main course and the service, it was all absolutely impeccable! The old house is well restored, beautifully furnished and spotless! What a treat and a bargain for what you get! We WILL be back.

Room Tip: We had the two room suite upstairs with our own fridge and AC.

Charles is the perfect host. The rooms, service, breakfast is just the best. The added anniversary card and rose petals were a perfect greeting. thanks for the recipes, Charles and thank you for the opportunity to make a new friend.

We had a really good time in this place. The B&B is well located in Natchitoches.
The room was really sweet. Maybe a bit noisy when people walk around.
Breakfast is great in the dining room.

And finally the owner is really friendly and nice

My wife and I enjoyed the downstairs library suite - it has its own entrance from the front porch. The view from the back porch of the river is lovely. You can walk down stairs to the dock for an even closer experience. The inn is just a couple short blocks from the Historic Downtown - walk or drive, parking is free. Our innkeeper Charles is the perfect host, gracious and attentive. Charles' breakfasts are phenomenal in flavor and presentation. A rating of excellent seems inadequate.

My husband and I stayed here for a special occasion so I ordered the cake and balloons to be waiting for him. He spoils me all the time so it's nice to return the treat. It has a beautiful and spacious back porch with a swing. There arestairs leading down to the dock right on the river. The dock is so large that it has lawn furniture on it with a fan, which you so need in Louisiana. We met up with others that were staying there and talked for a long while. Delightful! The breakfast was for lack of words AMAZING! Simply AMAZING! Planning a get away for his 60th birthday. Don't miss out of on this treat!!
