“Highlight of trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 December 2013

My husband and I were in town for a conference during the spring, our stay at this B&B was the highlight by far. While my husband was busy most of the weekend, I thoroughly loved looking around the house and taking in all of the history. The music room, pool hall, and dining room were beautifully decorated - we both enjoyed the breakfast tremendously (the Limoges china was beautiful and the food was fantastic). Even though we had a function that made us miss the concert, Mr. Stone played a few songs for me before our visit was done. I think his playing, along with the beauty of the house, made it a trip to remember! I would (and have) reccomend this B&B to anyone who is looking for a great getaway and a home that has been preserved beautifully!

“Not to Be Missed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 December 2013

An unusual and not-to-be-missed experience. Although we didn't stay at the Stone House, we had read about these concerts on Tripadvisor and emailed Mr. Stone about attending. Fortunately, there was to be a concert during our stay in Natchez, Mr. Stone informed us.
It's hard to say where to begin, this is like a number of wonderful things rolled into one - a wonderful musical performance, an informative lesson on music theory and history, an entertaining discussion of Natchez history, an insight into the history of one family and house, and a detailed tour of part of a lovely Natchez home.
Mr. Stone is an excellent pianist, a great lecturer, a talented "tour" guide and a most gracious host.

What a treat to be given a private concert by an accomplished musician while sipping delicious wine. The music selection and program notes were well thought out and delivered. This was definitely the highlight of our visit to Natchez.

“Magical Moments with a Master”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 October 2013

Joe brought the music of the masters alive with his extraordinary musical talent. The piano concert exhibited his musical talent in the intimate setting of his beautiful antebellum home. As we sipped champagne, Joe's music swept us away to a different place in time. He described each piece before playing for us so that we could truly enjoy and appreciate the classics. Afterward, he gave us a tour of his lovely home and the history of the generations who had lived there. An incredible experience. Not to be missed on your trip to Natchez.

“What a gift!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2013

Take a step back in time! I thoroughly enjoyed sipping wine, while being in such a beautiful home, being with an intimate group, and listening to Joe, a most gifted and talented pianist! Joe explained each piece, which allowed those that are not classically trained to appreciate and enjoy his incredible talent even more! This will be one of the highlights of your trip...I promise...it was for me!
