After driving from Atlanta to Vicksburg, my wife and I arrived late Saturday night to find Joe waiting up for us. With only two other guests occupying the house, we felt like we had the house all to ourselves. After checking in, Joe showed us to the library room, which was just off the side door from the check in area. Usually, a location like this would scare me because of noise and foot traffic, but under the circumstances, it was fine. My wife and I enjoyed the room, but the bathroom (shower) needed to be fixed (one could not shut the water off completely). After a very restful night, we woke up to a partake in a wonderful breakfast hosted by Macy in the breakfast area. After dining and the sharing of stories, Macy gave us an historical overview of the family who built the house in the 1870's as well as the history of Vicksburg, MS. and the Civil War. She even sports a neat collection of 19th/20th century bottles. Macy is very excited to share the history of the Corners Mansion, which is awesome. Try not to be in such a rush to leave. After all, the pace of life is just a tad slower in Vicksburg:) After a tour of the Mansion and more interesting historical tidbits, it was time to head over to the battleground. Macy and Joe admit that there are things that need repair around the house (cement stairs outside, for example), but what does one expect from a 125 year old home. It is not a five star hotel, but for what you pay, it is appropriately priced. Any defects in the house are more than made up by Macy's charm. Please plan to stay at the Corner's Mansion the next time you are in Vicksburg. You won't be disappointed.
The room on the outside underneath the first floor would be my choice next time as it is very privat...
