Hope Farm Inn, once the home and headquarters of the Spanish governor, is the oldest house in Natchez. Nestled in a beautiful, hidden wooded area in the heart of the historic homes district, Hope Farm is the B & B of choice for history buffs. Ms. Ethel Banta the owner and hostess brings the history of the property to life as she shares the home and artifacts during her guided tour. She is a gracious hostess in the best of Southern tradition from the moment guests arrive. Liza's breakfast--especially the biscuits and fresh fruit, is presented in the elegant dining room where Miss Ethel joins guests to share Natchez history and assists guests plan their stay in city.
Hope Farm is on the famous spring tour of homes. While in need of upgrades to the bath and general face-lifting repair, it is an elegant piece of 18th Century history that should be included in your visit to Natchez.
