Very friendly staff and clean room and nice bed. We stayed away from the main house a few doors down in another home they have redone and where they serve breakfast for both houses. This was fine but the back door was locked leaving only one exit and worried me in case of fire. The breakfast was not bad but...

I'm sure there are many great B&B's in Natchez, Mississippi and we stayed in one we highly recommend. It is ideally located in a beautiful area of Natchez. It was built in the 1890's with a lot of historic ambiance. There was much effort put into making this a lovely restored home. The rooms are beautifully decorated with comfortable beds....

Very frustrating experience with the owners/management. We called over a month in advance and had a very long detailed conversation with the employee about our needs for accommodations re: our 3 children (ages 13, 11 and 8). We booked a suite of rooms so that our family could stay together/paid the deposit/received confirmation/etc. Upon our arrival, the owner acted totally...

Dear Jennifer, Clearly we are disappointed that your stay was disturbed by the miscommunication over whether you had accompanying children. We take our reviews to heart and Ron’s initial reaction can be characterized as “totally taken off-guard, shocked and hurt” by your husband’s aggressive confrontation at checkout. Especially over what we thought to be a minor miscommunication and after we...

We booked the two bedroom Gallery suite at the Devereaux Shields House from pictures on their website and it was excellent in every way! Our suite included a private balcony overlooking Union Ave, a quiet residential street. It was the perfect location for a 24 hour stop in Natchez to see the historic town center which was easily walkable from...

We stayed at Clara's cottage in the Elmo room. The historical décor is designed for comfort. Enjoyed relaxing on the front porch. Everything from the rooms to the lawns are well kept. An elegant breakfast, different each day, was served by a friendly staff. Complimentary snacks and drinks were available 24/7. Definitely a great B&B.

Awesome, perfectly maintained old style retreat with wonderful hosts. A perfect place to experience Natchez and the Mississippi strolling around in this quiet little town. We had excellent food at Cotton Alley Café recommended by our hosts.

Happy place to stay. Very kind helpful staff. Our room had a super high bed but a step ladder to get me in. Very quiet at night. Easy parking and in a very pretty area of town and a good location for sightseeing. I highly recommend this B&B.

My boyfriend and I had a great time in Natchez. There was so much to do and not enough time to do everything we wanted. We loved staying at the Devereaux Shields Clara cottage. The breakfast was great and the staff was amazing. We booked the relax and rejuvenate package and received massages and champagne. The massage therapist (Dot) was...

We spent two nights at this B & B and were delighted! We stayed in Louise's Room in Aunt Clara's Cottage....great location , across from the dining room! The Inn keepers were out of town, but had Katherine and John taking their place! Very friendly and personable, they were a perfect fit for this town! Robin cooked and served breakfast...
