“Don't miss this Natchez experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2009

All the glowing reviews you read about Oak Hill Inn are true! My mom and I stopped in Natchez on a cross-country trip, remembering all the beautiful homes and gardens that we saw there in earlier trips in the 1970's and early 80's when my dad was still alive. I wanted to make this revisiting of Natchez a special experience for my mom so I researched the options thoroughly, and settled on Oak Hill Inn. The stay could not have been better. The house, grounds, and hospitality of the hosts were all impeccable. They gave us sterling recommendations of what to see and where to dine, and following a delicious breakfast we were treated to the most in-depth and fascinating home tour of our entire trip. Do not miss the tour! The beauty and history/meaning behind the objects d'art are truly remarkable. Thank you for a wonderful experience that my mom and I treasure deeply.

Doug met us in the parking garage and offered to carry our luggage. He had fresh iced tea ready for us and fresh baked cookies. Our room was gorgeous and very, very comfortable. Didn't realize until the next morning that those pillows that felt so nice and cool were special pillows called chillows. Doug had a list of places to visit within a short distance. The breakfast was one of the best things about the stay. Leaving was the worse thing.

The owners were very concerned about your comfort and well educated on the history of the city. The gourmet breakfast was wonderful.

My best friend and I spent a night at Oak Hill to get away and relax. We wish we could have spent at least one more night and would love to go back again to spend more time sitting on the front porch overlooking the quiet street or on the back porch by the fountain. Doug was a perfect host, greeting us with some truly delicious iced tea and cookies and carrying our bags upstairs to our room. Our room had two beds and plenty of space, with a bathroom just outside the door. Everything was spotlessly clean and inviting.
The next morning we went down for a beautiful breakfast of Eggs Benedict, cheese crepes, fresh muffins, and melon with sweet figs picked from the back yard. Everything was delicious and perfectly presented on antique china. After breakfast, Doug took us on a fascinating tour of the house, answering any questions and entertaining us with the history of the town, the house and his great aunt's antiques, which fill the house. It was clear Doug and Don take great pride in their home and love sharing it. Perfect hospitality!

What a lovely home, and fabulous hosts. Doug and Don went way beyond our expectations, greeting us with cold iced tea and fresh chocolate cookies, then carried our bags to the most wonderful room- cozy yet decorated in the period of the house. The house and porches are meticulously maintained- with lovely places to relax both inside and out. Secure, off-street parking next to a beautifully landscaped back patio area made us feel we'd chosen wisely as soon as we arrived.

The breakfast- you'll have to experience it to believe it. It alone was worth the price of our stay. Eggs benedict, raspberry cream crepe, fresh homemade muffins, and more- all served on period china. Coffee available early for those who can't sleep in. We were still talking about that breakfast a week later.

The after-breakfast tour of the home is just fabulous. So many interesting stories of the antiques in the home- it is obvious that it was furnished with loving attention to the detail of the period.

Overall, Doug and Don are the consummate hosts- you will do no better than the Oak Hill Inn when visiting lovely Natchez, MS.

Whether beginning or completing a trip on the Natchez Trace - or perhaps just generally stopping to see the sights of Natchez - the Historic Oak Hill Inn is a truly exemplary bed and breakfast. The Inn is lovingly maintained - both indoors and outdoors - with excellent taste indoors, indicative of the time period. The location is ideal being close to many of the antebellum homes and downtown of Natchez itself. The Inn has a lovely large front porch, a nice backyard sitting area and great parking area. The breakfast was truly delightful. The town of Natchez is a wonderful place to visit and my trip there will was all the more enhanced with a stay at the Historic Oak Hill Inn.
