As a child and teenager I traveled to Natchez many times and LOVE the history and the hospitality! This time I came with my husband who had planned the romantic weekend as a complete surprise. We had the pleasure of staying at Aunt Clara's Cottage owned by Ron and Eleanor Fry. Our room was the Victoria Room and it was lovely, and very comfortable. The bed and the sheets were fabulous and made for a very restful night's sleep!! Upon arriving we were greeted by Eleanor who took us straight to our beautiful room which was filled with a dozen pink roses. She immediately enquired about any special needs we might have or likes and dislikes regarding breakfast and our stay. The refrigerator was stocked with waters, and sodas for us to enjoy. There were nuts and candy for snacking and a fancy coffee or tea maker for our convenience. Eleanor and Ron were very interesting to talk with and very helpful with touring and resturanting ideas. Breakfast which was prepared by Eleanor was fabulous!! She is an excellent cook. Our last day, after our breakfast we were picked up at the front porch for our carriage ride that took us throughout the downtown area. It was a great experience and very educational!! Overall we had a great time and enjoyed the hospitality that we encountered. We look forward to returning, only this time with our children so they can enjoy the historical South like we did! Natchez is a beautiful town and it is like stepping back in time. We recommend Deveraux Shields House or Aunt Clara's Cottage and the great town of Natchez to anyone who wants to know what true Southern Hospitality is like!!!
