Which rooms are on the 2nd floor and which have Mississippi views?
Dear Eliza, the Mississippi suite, the Arthur suite, the English, French and Irish cottages, the Chefs Quarter, the Veranda suite and the Turret. All have a beautiful view over the Mississippi river. The English, French and Mississippi have a screened in porch. Irish has a balcony but not screened.Covington has a river view but is on the ground level. It also has a walk out seating area. Hope this helps

Good Day Andrew, I am sorry to hear that your experience was less than what you expected.I wish we had known that your food was not to your liking at the time when you were here. Our Chef Steve is highly skilled in the culinary field and praised by all our customers so your experience is an isolated one that we would have liked to correct if known about it.I would appreciate if you could call me to reveal more details about your experience so we can better understand what went wrong. .
