We just returned home from visiting Natchez, MS and Historic Oak Hill Inn. Doug was a most gracious host. Upon arrival he met us at our covered parking place and carried our luggage up for us. He immediately made us feel at home. We were offered a glass of his famous iced tea and chocolate chip cookies,YUM!!! Our room was immaculate and filled with antiques and was very spacious. Doug was full of information about the antebellum homes we should visit as well restaurants we should try. We visited three of the old churches in Natches and took the carriage tour of downtown Natches. all on his suggestion and we were not dissappointed. His home has been beautifully redone and decorated in wonderful antique furniture, china vases and artwork, some of which originated from his own family.
Breakfast was exquisite .served to us on antique china and could compete with any breakfast served in a five star restaurant. I particularly appreciated his succesful attempt to accomodate my low sodium diet.
My husband and I highly recommend, that should your travel plans call for visiting Natchez. that you try Historic Oak Hill Inn.

When my partner and I were planning to visit Natchez in April of 2009, we chose the Historic Oak Hill Inn from a number of options on the internet. We wanted to stay for two nights. Doug only had one night available, but he immediatly offered to personally make the arrangements for a second night with another property just a few blocks away. I didn't even have to make a confirming phone call to take care of the details for the second night.

Doug met us upon arrival and made us feel right at home. He told us that we had been fortunate enough to arrive in Natchez for the annual Pilgrimage tour of private homes. When it became clear that we wouldn't be able to visit all three of the homes on the afternoon tour that day, Doug called the visitors bureau and arranged for us to get a single ticket to visit a nearby home that was a highlight of our visit to Natchez.

Our breakfast was an amazing feast served on antique china in the formal dining room of the home. After the meal and a fascinating tour of the Inn, Doug called ahead to our next destination to make sure they were ready for us, then gave us detailed directions and sent us on our way. He also made excellent suggestions for dining and touring for the remainder of our stay. We would definitely stay here again on our next visit to Natchez.

We visited during the Spring Pilgrimage and happened upon Oak Hill Inn, finding it to be one of the best kept secrets in Natchez. The owners have a done an excellent restoration of their home and garden. Our favorite room was the library where we could sit and browse their extensive and interesting collection. The gourmet southern breakfast was delicious and included traditional dishes as well as some unexpected treats. Doug gave a wonderful tour of the inn,sharing unique family antiques and local history. When we return to Narchez, we'll return to Historic Oak Hill Inn.

How can so many sweet treats be packed in to one package!!! Our stay in Natchez and Oak Hill was so captivating! We loved all of the hidstoric treasures we found in Natchez and it was so nice to return to Oak Hill and be greeted with homemade tea & mint juleps. Donald and Doug are the perfect host. Their home is elegant and cozy and full of southern, european and eastern antiques that will just take your breath away. The breakfast rivals any breakfast I've had anywhere, it was well prepared, beautifully served and simply delicious. It was indeed a pleasure to be guest at Oak Hill.

I visited Natchez the first week of April and found this bed and breakfast on the internet. My two friends and I shared the upstairs which worked very well for three people. Doug is a wonderful host who has an outstanding breakfast each morning and will help in any way to make arrangements for you in Natchez. He even carried our luggage upstairs and downstairs.
I just can't give Oak Hill enough compliments and would always return there - it is truly a 5 star plus bed and breakfast. Frances Murphy - St. Louis, Missouri

We had an absolutely fantastic time in Natchez and our stay at the Oak Hill Inn ameliorated our experience. Doug was a fantastic host making recommendations for attractions and meals; even going above and beyond by making sure the Easter Bunny came for our two boys - creating two wonderful Easter baskets for them. He gave a fantastic tour of the Oak Hill Inn sharing with us the history of the home and much of the furnishings in it - many of which came from his own family. Our boys felt like princes in the upstairs blue room and the two upstairs rooms were perfect for our family. The breakfasts were all homemade and were amazing - if he were ever to create a cookbook with his recipes, I would not only purchase one for myself, but for gifts for others. An added bonus were the homemade chocolate chocolate chip cookies which were waiting for us each afternoon - I've never had a better cookie! Additionally, the grounds were beautiful and we enjoyed sitting on the patio in the afternoon relaxing as we listened to the fountain running. It was a truly relaxing and enjoyable experience!
