We stayed in the Rose Room in the main house and thoroughly enjoyed everything about our stay. Ron and Eleanor are very friendly and gracious hosts. The home is beautifully decorated. The grounds are well appointed and relaxing. And the Breakfast is nothing less than spectacular. Highly recommend.

Dear Ed, We're very happy you and Alexandria enjoyed your 3-day romantic getaway at our B&B and in Natchez. Thank you for your great review and kind thoughts. Yes, we love to walk around town as well, often walking downtown to dinner. Especially now with the fall weather so accommodating. You were wonderful guests to serve and we hope you...

The cottage was a nice surprise from the very beginning. The owners preserve the old Natchez atmosphere and extend a warm welcome. Everything is different from business-like all-alike modern hotels including a meet&greet complimentary reception with local wines, a 7am coffee, a 8:30 breakfast in the parlor, an inviting old bed so high that it requires a ladder, and the...

We found the accommodations and hospitality to be absolutely superb. And being dog friendly took Devereaux Shields House over the top for us. Breakfast with the other guests was a wonderful experience while briefly getting to know some new people and hear about their travels and enjoying an excellent breakfast menu.

We stayed in Aunt Clara's cottage, a few door down from the main house. We had everything we needed, all modern comforts but the setting was spectacular. Our hosts (Ron and Eleanor) were wonderful and welcoming and provided us with so much information, local history and advice. Well worth the stay.

This is a beautiful and historic B&B close to the center of Natchez. The proprietors (Ron and Eleanor) are very friendly and welcoming.

Beautiful house - like staying in a stately home but with all the facilities you need. Room in the main house with the extra bedroom ideal for a family with older children. Lovely traditional breakfast. Owners very welcoming and helpful. Short walk to town centre.
