“A Misrepresented Bed N Breakfast”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2012

We did not even stay once we arrived. The area was of concern
and the the house itself worn down. Doug could not have
been kinder on the phone when we made reservations...but
was nowhere to be found when we arrived. We left
with a phone message advising him of our dismay.

My wife and I stayed here after a week in New Orleans. It was perfect planning. The pace of life in this southern town and the easy going nature of the Doug, the Inn Keeper, made it a nice adjustment from the more franic (and fun!) pace of The Big Easy.

The home is beautiful, well preserved and has much charm. The optional 5:00 Hospitality wine & light hors d'oeuvres was a nice touch we have not seen at other B&Bs and we enjoyed the chat and learned much history of the town, house and suggestions for what to do and where to eat. I specially enjoyed my early morning coffee on the 2nd floor veranda (or gallery as they say in New Orleans). It was tranquil and the screened in porch was beautiful.

As to the town, the Inn Keeper loaned us a guided tape of the National Battlefield that he keeps for guests. The battlefield is an amazing place and the exhibit on the USS Cario is a special treat. Don't miss the Court House Muesum. It was amazing to see so many artifacts up close.

We spent two night at the Baer Inn. It was a special time in a beautiful home in an interesting town. We have fond memories of our time there.

What a great find! Doug was an exceptional host, friendly and attentive with great attention to detail. The breakfast was delicious, as was the evening drink and cake. The room was grandly decorated and extremely comfortable - it had a shared bathroom across the hall but I had specifically chosen it as it was the cheapest room - with noone else in the other room it shared with this was not a problem for me.

Vicksburg was a lovely town to spend time in and I wished I could have stayed longer - although there is not much happening there on Easter Sunday!

We stayed in the Scarlett room for 2 nights during Easter week. The room was large and comfortable as was the bath. The breakfasts were tasty and substantial enough to see us through until dinner. The host, while a somewhat recent (5 or 6 years) transplant to the area, is a history buff with strong customer service skills. He was very helpful with recommendations for local activities and eateries. Parking is secure behind a gate. Baer House is convenient for walking to the series of historically significant buildings in the area and the Riverwalk, Coca Cola museum, etc. My only complaint was lighting: there is only a bedside stand and lamp on one side of the bed and the bathroom lighting was not adequate for this 60-something to apply makeup, etc. All in all, a wonderful, fairly-priced B&B.

Room Tip: rooms vary somewhat in price; there are also 2 that share a bath and are commensurately priced: ide...

We stayed in the Scarlett room. The bed was great and the room was very comfortable. What a beautiful home! The breakfasts were good and the happy hour wine and snack were nice.
It was like staying in one of the homes on the tour in Natchez. The Bear House is on the tour in Vicksburg by appointment. Doug has done an amazing job on furnishing the home and in decorating. Doug is a good host and the Baer House Inn was a great value.

Room Tip: Not all the rooms have private baths. The Scarlett room did.
