“Great location, fantastic stay”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

We stayed at the B&B for just one night, but had a lovely time and would have definitely stayed another night or too if we had time. The house was well kept and of period design and the surrounds were very beautiful, with stairs leading down to a jetty on the water-front. Our room had all appropriate amenities, plus French windows leading out to the swinging chair on the porch and back garden.

A fantastic three-course breakfast was provided in the dining room in the morning and our host, Charles, was very charming and friendly. It was interesting to walk around the small but beautiful town of Natchitoches, particularly along the riverfront. The only downside of my stay was that I found it particularly difficult to find anything vegetarian to eat in the area, although (with advance warning) Charles was kind enough to specially prepare a vegetarian breakfast for me! I would definitely recommend the B&B to anyone visiting the area.

My sister, my mom, and myself stayed in the Puckett Suite and had a great time. The beds were very comfortable and the suite itself very roomy. The B&B was quiet even though it was full, so you don't hear other guests easily. It is within walking distance to the downtown area, and the deck area in the river is a great place to sit and relax. The breakfast on both days was delicious and the host John was full of knowledge on what to do and how to get there. All in all, a great stay, and I plan on returning with my husband one day.

Six of us ladies stayed at Violet Hill December 4 & 5, 2013 and departed on the morning of Dec. 6. We had a wonderful time and Violet Hills was the highlight of the trip.

Great lodging, great food, but what we enjoyed the most was the friendliness of the manager and staff. John directed to good shopping, good eating locations and some very interesting history of the town.

Anyone wanting to have a great get-away put this on your agenda. It is a must!

My husband and I have stayed at the Violet Hill numerous times, for the Christmas lights, and for any time we want to get away. We love the Violet Hill, as well as all their other properties: the Queen Anne, the Judge Porter House, and the Andrew Morris House. In fact, their service is so above the rest that we won't even stay anywhere else! If all these properties are booked for the time we want to visit, we change our days. We have been staying since 2007, and all the hosts are so gracious, we just can't get enough. I just can't express in words how much I appreciate their sincerity, their hospitality, and their desire to please their guests. Thank you for another fantastic weekend!!

for the past several years, my husband and I have stayed at the VIolet HIll for the Christmas Lights in Natchitoches. The inn is far enough away from the maddening crowd but close enough for walking to Front Street for shopping, sightseeing and eating. The inn is warm and beautiful, the staff amazing and breakfast is a fine dining experience. Charles is a grand host - attending to your every need. Oh, and did I mention the back porch and dock on the river? OMG.

Thank you Charles for always creating a wonderful holiday weekend for us. see you next year!

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the Inn have easy access to the back porch, overlooking the river.

My husband and I loved everything about this beautiful B and B. Our room was spacious with a wonderful large bathroom , which had double sinks, a claw foot tub and a shower. John made delicious breakfasts and served us like we were royalty. The small touches like the fridge loaded with complimentary soft drinks and an ice maker were nice. We were lucky to have perfect weather for sitting on the back porch and enjoying the Christmas lights on the Cane River. The beds are heavenly and the location was perfect for walking to the Jefferson Street shopping and local pubs and restaurants.

We have stayed in many B & Bs. Violet Hill is one of the best. Amazing attention to detail. There is a hot & cold water cooler in the hall. The hot water is the perfect temperature for hot chocolate...which we drank sitting beside the Christmas tree. The bed was comfortable as was the Jacuzzi tub. The breakfast was beyond the usual fare. Everything is aimed at making you feel valued. The back porch beckons you to relax with a good book or daydream. This is a place to come and stay. My only disappointment is...that we could not stay longer.

Room Tip: John Reavls Guest Room has a door to the back porch seating area and a view of the lake/river.
