There aren't any superlatives I could add, that haven't already been used in Oak Hill Inn's many glowing reviews. Suffice to say, they are all true. The place is gorgeous and in the best location in Natchez. Don and Doug are gracious and accommodating without being intrusive. Breakfast is incredible. Be sure to ask Doug for his tour of the house, where you learn not only about the structure but about the many incredible antiques in the house, some of which are part of his own family's fascinating history. I've been to Natchez many times and am now wondering how I didn't discover Oak Hill before. It will now be my go-to place when in this part of Mississippi.
