I could go on for days about this trip and all because of Oak Hill. When in Natchez stay there. From the moment of arrival until the four of us left, there was nothing the hosts would not do to make our stay amazing. The breakfasts surpassed any I have had elsewhere. Bobby Flay, eat your heart out! From Eggs Benedict to home made muffins and the best FrenchToast ever, life was indeed, incredible. We learned so much about the area and it's history, not only from touring but from the owners of Oak Hill. The accommodations were elegant and yet comfortable and welcoming as were our hosts. The four of us enjoyed our stay reveling in our upstairs suite where the beds beckoned and chocolates were our "last call" for the night. The front and rear porches provided shade and cools breezes when we wanted respite from our schedule of sightseeing. Our hosts were readily available for any questions and were tour guides extraordinare. They were able to provide information regarding our interests of the area. But the real gem was when we toured Oak Hill itself. The house really came alive when Doug gave the tour . He shared not only the history of the house but his family history and those special items that grace this fine home.. My friends and I agreed that this tour enhanced what was an already fabulous stay and because of it we felt more a part of Natchez and especially Oak Hill
Many thanks to Doug and Don who made our stay so incredible.
