We just spent a week here and thoroughly enjoyed the place. The owner was installing new carpet in the main house, so we only were able to stay in the main house for three nights before we had to switch rooms to the kitchen dependency (courtyard rooms). It truly is worth the extra coin to stay in the main house. Architecturally, it is stunning - perhaps one of the best examples of antebellum mansions, and certainly the most picturesque. We stayed in Room 401 (Robert E. Lee suite) for the first few nights and then Room 202. My wife was blown away by the Robert E. Lee suite. It was complete with a wonderful period Teester bed and full bath. Plus, it's only a few feet away from the wonderful second floor balcony...complete with rockers. Awesome. Room 202 was well apportioned...but more casually classy than the dressed-up main house. We were happy with both. Breakfast each morning is complimentary...they have continental in the main house and "big breakfast" in the Castle restaurant a few feet away. The breakfasts were good, and dinners were exceptional. I feel I can say with some authority that the Castle is the best restaurant in town. Natchez doesn't have many restaurants to start with, and of the seven we went to, this was simply the best. There is a pool behind the Castle. It was refreshing, but the deck chairs could use a new coat of paint and the cushions are well faded and needed to be replaced/recovered. Oh, and there's a proper Bocce court there too. Well done Dunleith. The staff couldn't have been friendlier or more accommodating. Were I to return to Natchez, I'd stay here in a heartbeat.
