“An Amazing Weekend”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

This is a truly amazing place. Neil is wonderful & makes you feel right at home. Sitting on the porch whether it is on the porch upstairs or downstairs you get an awesome view. Neil makes the best breakfast I have ever eaten. Natchez also has lots of history in it. I really can't wait to go back there again. It was the most relaxing & stress free time I have spent in quite awhile. The only thing you have to do on time is be there for breakfast on time. My children gave this weekend to their dad & I for our 40th wedding anniversary & I can't imagine getting anything better than this. All I can say is it was wonderful!

We stayed for one night as we wanted a break from chain-type hotels on our trip. Neil's place was certainly authentic and charming and we felt like we stayed in a proper Mississippi home. The views are phenomenal and should not be missed. Neil clearly takes pride in his role and we would encourage others to visit.

Our group of 5 seniors (2 American, 3 British) have recently completed a two-week roadtrip of the southern states. We stayed at Bluff Top in all 3 rooms in early May. It is a lovely spot, and the view across the Mississippi River just draws you when you arrive. It is obvious that Neil (the owner) takes great pride in his home as well as his gardens. We especially enjoyed the top floor porch, and sat there with our Cokes talking late into the evening as we watched the passing boats before us. It is a special place, indeed. In the morning we were all treated to a hot breakfast served on English china - just for us.

Good choice. This home overlooks the MS river. Great walking paths and close to Old Natchez.
The rooms were comfortable and had plenty of amenities. The rooms were clean, only complaint was mildew on a shower liner, which is an inexpensive fix. Neil was a great host and very knowledgeable about the history of the area. Would not hesitate to stay there again.

Pretty much as other reviewers have said this is a really nice house in a great location in an interesting old town.Neil is a charming and interesting host,and the accommodation is comfortable and the atmosphere relaxed. We went to the Under the hill saloon down by the river which is an interesting place and just the location for a great sunset

Neil at the Bluff Top was very accomodating and the view of the river was great! But...our room was quite dirty and the trash had not been removed since the last guest -- both in the kitchenette and the bathroom. Most uneasy feeling. The bed was one of the most comfortable that I've ever slept in!!!
Unfortunately, when I walked downstairs for breakfast the next morning, I stepped on a dead roach. At least it was dead. The table setting was beautiful and breakfast was "interesting". I had never eaten scrambled eggs prepared like that.

Room Tip: Only 3 rooms in the inn and we were upstairs. I think the downstairs is better.

Bluff Top B & B is a comfortable, historic inn set atop the bluff just north of the city center. A warm welcome, a host knowledgeable in local history, a magnificent view, comfortable sleeping accommodations, delicious and filling breakfasts, evening walks along the bluff-top promenade, and marvelous sunsets are just some of the reasons Neil Varnell's intimate inn will be my place to stay next time I visit Natchez.
