I am not prone to gush about things but the stay here was simply outstanding. My wife and I stayed here for our anniversary. It proved to be exactly what we would have expected a visit to a bed and breakfast to be like.
The rooms and amenities are all excellent. The location could hardly be better; WiFi, complimentary beverages, big porch with plenty of chairs and swing, and right on the Cane River Lake. It is an excellent place to stay, relax, and visit with other guest. All this and a short walk from several good restaurants and watering holes.
Pulling all this together is the Innkeeper, Laverne. She was a pleasure to visit with and is an excellent chef. If you get the chance request the rolled omelette with rosemary potatoes. My wife and I would go back just to have her cooking.
All in all Natchitoches and Violet Hill and very well worth the trip.
