Enjoyed the gracious host, Jerry, who made dinner reservations for us, tour of the historic home, recommendations of what to do in Natchez. Breakfast was delicious. Our room was full of antiques. Only bad thing was noisy AC.. Enjoyed sitting on spacious porch in the evening visiting with other guests and gazing at live oaks and crepe myrtles. It's July and there was actually a breeze in the evening!

Esther, the owner and chef is one of the most delightful ladies I have ever met. The accommodations and food were outstanding! She spent time with us and shared wonderful information about her family history and home. She made sure we had everything that we needed. I can't wait to come back!!!!

We were warmly greeted by the owner and her delightful two poodles, the house is amazing, I expected to see Mark Twain appear in the living room, it is that much of a period piece...Exquisite.

Lovely bedroom with a cool 4 Poster Bed and the following morning we were treated to a lovely cooked breakfast!

Wish we could have stayed longer but we had a busy schedule on our Road Trip of the Deep South so was only there an evening and one night..

Thank you, the stay was memorable!

We didn’t stay here, but did try their restaurant. This is more than a restaurant, it’s an institution.

After delicious Grilled Salmon on a Bed of Wilted Spring Greens with Pancetta and Olives, I got the main course: Grilled Brest of Duck with a Blueberry and Pear Port Wine Sauce. It was superb! This was followed by an exquisite Frozen Praline Mouse Cake with Chocolate Sauce.
Who would think that deep in North American South someone could cook on par with Michelin studded Parisians restaurants?

Chef Esther Carpenter is fifth generation owner of the Elms, a delightful reincarnation of one of antebellum plantations of Natchez.

This is the best B&B in Natchez. My husband and I stayed here and we felt like we were home. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. I would recommend staying here before staying at hotels in the area. Great bathroom too!

I highly recommend the Elms B&B in Natchez MS. A lovely historic home with lots of character and beautiful touches. The home has been restored, and many of the pieces of furniture and accessories are original to the home. The owner, Esther, is a chef, and the breakfasts were fantastic. We really enjoyed relaxing on our private porch with a glass of wine in the afternoons after touring some historic Natchez homes during the day. Our visit was made even more enjoyable by the presence of Lucy and Gumbo, Esther's two (extremely well behaved) little poodles.

We stayed one night in this B&B and enjoyed it tremendously. The room we stayed in was rather grand and sleeps 5. It was extremely comfortable. We had access to the balcony where we could sit on rocking chairs enjoying the quiet evening. It's location allowed us to explore Natchez and the Mississippi river. It's not a big town, and everything was within walking distance. The walk through the neighbourhood was also wonderful with many big houses to admire. We were told the host was a wonderful cook, and were treated to a fantastic breakfast.
