Historic Oak Hill Inn
Ranked #2 of 42 Natchez B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 July 2014

The Historic Oak Hill Inn is a lovingly restored home in "downtown" Natchez. The Inn was immaculately clean. The breakfast was first rate, very plentiful, and gormet. Don, the host, was helpful and cordial.. He provided several suggestions on both dining and mansions to visit. A delicious mint julep was provided upon arrival (or a glass of chardonnay). Homebaked cookies, water, and beer was also available. Covered, off the street parking (behind the house) is also available. Great stay and highly recommended.

Room Tip: There are only three rooms and they are all good

My husband and I just returned from a 2 night "baby moon" in Natchez, MS. The Oak Hill Inn was everything we could have hoped for and more. The house is beautiful and Don is a wonderful host. The 2 breakfasts we had there were probably some of the best meals we had in Natchez. Don helped us make reservations at The Castle Restaurance, which was also a great suggestion. We would go back in a second!!! Worth every penny and a great value too! Thanks again for a great stay.

Room Tip: The Beatty suite downstairs is absolutely beautiful.

It’s been a week since my wife and I celebrated our 25th anniversary with a 2-night stay at the Historic Oak Hill Inn. I’ve been waiting for the words to come to me but I’m just not that good a writer so I’ll just say it as it comes to me. It was the best. It was the best B&B we’ve ever stayed at, and it was the best vacation we’ve ever taken, even though it was brief.

When we checked into the main suite downstairs, there were fresh double-chocolate cookies for us to sneak a snack, out by the coffee area. There was a fresh cut magnolia bloom in a vase on the side board, and orchids on the main table. It was quiet, hearing only the water fountain outside. Above all, it was elegant. Walking into our room, it looked like we were the first couple to ever stay there. It was clean to the point of being perfectly immaculate, even by my wife’s high standards. Nothing was worn or even slightly cheap looking; it looked like a place you would decorate if you had perfect taste and an unlimited budget. There was a fresh cut magnolia bloom by the bed side along with truffles, and the décor is period-perfect for an 1830 antebellum home, as well as just strikingly beautiful. If this house was decorated this nicely in 1830 the owner would’ve been held in very high esteem, and that’s the way we felt by staying there: special. It was a live-in antique, but at the same time comfortable and homey. It was kind of like visiting that great-great aunt who passed along stories told her by her father her about the civil war days.

The owner, Donald, was very friendly and helpful in our sightseeing efforts, and he invited us to read the books in the library, and we did. After a morning of touring the city’s sites, many of which he pointed out are within easy walking distance of this inn, we cooled off in the comfortably cool A/C while reading a book of ghost stories (no ghosts in this house though – just in the books). Then we took a walk to the malt shop located just 375 feet from the inn, and got chocolate-vanilla twist soft serve cones and ate them on the way back “home” as the soft afternoon rain began to fall through the sunshine. Summer in Natchez is so enveloping in its sultriness, it adds to the authenticity of the experience of visiting a city so steeped in American history. It was magical, old fashioned, and very comfortable. We finished off the ice cream while sitting on the back patio, listening to the fountain drops fall into the koi pond, and watching the Inn’s pet cats play on the bricks.

We slept extremely well on the fine soft sheets and soft-top memory foam mattress. Maybe the best bed I’ve ever slept on. Breakfast was a masterpiece. No, we are not related to Donald and he’s not paying us to say this. It was both beautiful and delicious. There was fresh fruit in a cut crystal glass, peach French toast with a crumbly coffee cake-like top with butter and a choice of warm syrup or preserves, a small omelet, crispy bacon, a fresh homemade biscuit, fresh juice and coffee, banana nut muffins, oh my gosh what did I leave out. There was so much but every bit of it was so good we didn’t want to leave anything on the plate. If someone were allergic to one food item or just didn’t want it, there is still enough there to fill up on five-star treats while leaving something on the table. The second morning everything was different but equally delicious. This has to be a major effort for Donald, but we didn’t see any stress. We just felt welcomed by the owner. There are a lot of good reasons why Tripadvisor shows this as the top-rated B&B in Natchez. We are going to return here. It is a really great inn.

Room Tip: The main suite is the most grand, and saves going up stairs. The two upstairs rooms share a bathroo...

Because of all the high praise given to this B&B, I wanted to "spurge" and stay at one so highly recommended. The owners, Don and Doug, are most gracious and welcoming. I particularly liked their famous Mint Julep upon arrival. My son and I stayed on the first floor because the upper floor was booked. I didn't see what the upstairs looked like, so it is hard to compare the difference in price. The main floor is a little pricey, and it consisted of a large bedroom and the study, two of the rooms were closed off at night. The main floor bedroom was beautifully furnished, it had a modern shower, and mini refrigerator stocked with non alcoholic beverages. My son slept on a roll away cot. The breakfast served is exceptional. They take obvious pride in providing a sumptuous array of food all quite delicious. The Inn has a beautiful garden seating area, filled with the wonderful scent of magnolias. Doug and Don were quite helpful in suggesting things to see and places to eat. The town of Natchez is a true hidden gem. I wished I had known how beautiful it was as I would have stayed at least 3 days.

Room Tip: Ask for descriptions of sleeping arrangements. The less expensive upper floor might be a better cho...

My wife & I always look for a unique B & B or boutique Inn when we travel & when we stayed @ Oak Hill we found a jewel! The historic house has been lovingly restored by the owners and decorated/furnished both elegantly & comfortably. We have stayed in many good inns across the US, but none any better than Oak Hill. Don & Doug have obviously put a great deal of thought as well as daily effort into providing the optimum experience.

From the covered guest parking @ the backdoor, to the restful gardens and porches, frosty Mint Juleps served on a sliver tray, a good night's sleep, and ending with a sumptuous freshly prepared artfully served breakfast-everything is wonderful (without exaggerating.)

The house is located in a beautiful walk-able/bike-able historic area of Natchez.
Be sure to take advantage of their local knowledge. Also know that they are attentive but not hovering. They even gladly shared their recipes for food & drink that we particularly liked.

Thanks Doug & Don for making our stay in Natchez so unexpectedly delightful.

This is a very special place to stay. The house is beautiful everything is circa 1835. Our room was on the ground floor with all the details taken care of including a stocked fridge, huge shower and four poster bed! Doug and Don are very welcoming and make you feel at home straight away without being in your face. We enjoyed our complimentary mint julep in the garden. The breakfast was the best breakfast we've ever had in a b&b and served impeccably. Natchez is a lovely town and its nice to be able to walk from here into town or down to the river. Really enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: We stayed in the downstairs room and it was amazing.

What an amazing place to stay. We had the most wonderful time, Don cooks the best breakfasts we have EVER eaten. Also Don gave us the very best advice on places to visit and to eat.
Oak Hill is filled with wonderful furniture, furnishings, and is almost a museum in its own right.
Thank you so much for a wonderful stay.
