This B&B is top notch and the reviews prove it! My husband and I stayed for one night upstairs for our 10th anniversary in late December. It's tucked in a quiet part of town, which makes it extra special.
When we arrived, we were greeted and shown the beautiful home. Doug and Don are packed full of knowledge of anything and everything Natchez. We enjoyed happy hour after 5 pm with the best mint julep ever and fresh baked cookies. All the little details of this home from the fresh flowers and beautiful china, to the amazing breakfast, make it so worth the trip. Doug and Don are wonderful people who have put so much hard work into their B&B. They are not intrusive whatsoever, and they will be glad to give out recommendations for anything you request around town.
Our room was nice and comfortable. The window in the room overlooks a beautiful fountain in the large side yard. There is one bathroom upstairs, which is shared with the two rooms. One room is of period furniture and the other is more modern but very nice. Both are very spacious. We opted for the more modern room because it had a queen bed. When a top floor room is reserved, the other will not be reserved unless you have a larger party. This way you are given privacy. Plus, if you have a larger party and need the two rooms, they will give a discount!
Breakfast was simply wonderful. The dining room was beautifully decorated and the china, glasses and other little details were taken with special care. The attention to detail was exquisite. We were treated to coffee, orange juice, biscuits, plantation potatoes, pecan French toast, berries and melon in a nice compote and frittata with asparagus. What a great stay! Can't wait to visit again.
