“Great hosts provide pleasant experience”
Reviewed 27 December 2011

Ron and Eleanor treated us well. Our room heat was not functioning correctly, and they attended to the problem quickly and without defensiveness. They brought in a space heater immediately and Eleanor even offered her own robe. The breakfasts, by the way, we're a pleasure.

Thanks to Ron and Eleanor, the owners of this beautiful Bed and Breakfast, for a wonderful stay in their home for the holidays. Eleanor is a marvelous cook - breakfast was special each morning. The couple make a great host and hostess and work very hard at making all guests feel welcome and special. Our room was so comfortable. The house was beautiful. Front porch was cozy and a great place to visit with other guests. Natchez is a beautiful, historic small town in Mississippi if you have never been. We will definitely return and know that our stay will again be all we could have asked for in a home away from home. (by the way.... we said "goodbye" to hotels a long time ago... B & B is the way to go)

Finding a pet-friendly B&B in Natchez was difficult, but I lucked out with Aunt Clara's Cottage at the Devereaux Shields House. The Cottage is lovely; the room (I stayed in the "Alice" room) was extremely comfortable (the sheets were the softest I've ever seen); the hosts were friendly (without being intrusive); and the food was delicious. The most amazing thing was that, despite the fact that the Cottage was fully booked while I was there, I never heard anyone else... very peaceful. The location IS a bit on the edge of the old downtown area; however, I was still able to comfortably walk to all of the downtown attractions. Plus, being able to sit on the large porch with a glass of wine and my dog made the trip an A+ in my book. (If you are not a pet-person, please don't be scared off by the fact that the B&B is pet-friendly. It's incredibly clean... no pet odors, stains, fleas, etc. Unless you happened to see another guest with a pet, you would never even know that pets were allowed.) It was such a pleasant stay, I can't imagine that I would even consider staying anywhere else on my next trip to Natchez.

This is a wonderfull B&B. All of the rooms well done. Breakfast was great. Breakfast is at 8:30 in a room with all the other guests and we enjoyed all the interesting conversations, especially the ones about the palns for the day. A great way to start the day.

Absolutely would return.

My wife and I spent one night here and loved it. It's a beautiful home in the heart of Natchez. Our room was outstanding, complete with a large porch outside our second floor room. The owners were delightful and helpful, and yet very respectful of our privacy. We thoroughly enjoyed breakfast the next morning and met some fellow travelers who shared some great suggestions. Overall, we would highly recommend this property.

Room Tip: We stayed on the second floor of the main house and were completely satisfied.

This was our second time staying with Ron & Eleanor in Natchez. They made us feel like part of the family - everything was perfect, again. Ron recommended Pilgrimage to us during our first trip and we weren't disappointed - it was a truly great experience. If you want to relax, experience some great 18th/19th century history and be pampered, then we highly recommend Natchez and the Devereaux Shields House.

This was the only B&B we stayed in on our US road trip and it made a nice change from impersonal hotels. We stayed in Aunt Clara's Cottage and our room was just fine, with a handy walk in closet. Ron and Eleanor are excellent hosts, providing a great breakfast over which we enjoyed chatting to other guests, comparing Southern and Aussie accents! The property is in a quiet street full of lovely homes, with plenty of eating options within 10 minutes walk. Be aware that the Natchez Visitor Centre is a longer walk and might be better to drive to, although downtown Natchez is as easy to drive around as it gets. This is an excellent base for visiting Natchez's many antebellum homes.
