I recently stayed with 2 friends in the Rose Suite. Every aspect of our stay was excellent. We appreciated the dinner reservations being made for us, the sightseeing tips, and the loan of a CD for touring the cemetery. The beds were comfortable, the linens were luxurious, and the robes were soft & cozy. We thoroughly enjoyed the delicious breakfast....

We spent one night at B&B and everything was great. Loved spending wine and coffee time in outside spaces. Very relaxing. Owners made dinner reservations. Comfortable bed. All amenities provided. Excellent breakfast at Aunt Clara's cottage down the street. Definitely recommend!

We were so excited to find a traditional Southern B&B for our stay in Natchez that allowed our well-traveled pets to stay with us. Our room was perfect.

Beautiful facility, lovely atmosphere. Staff very gracious and professional, and very accomodating to our dog, Jake, who also had a great time. Even a lovely little patio out back with a fountain for those of us who've yet to kick the habit. We will be returning!

Only stayed in this beautiful house one night but had I known how lovely it was I would have stayed longer but we had a schedule to stick to.
