Property description
The 6510 sq ft, all brick Italianate mansion is one of the best preserved historic homes in Mississippi and is nestled on a bluff with lovely views of the Mississippi River , one of the very few B&B's in Vicksburg that boasts lovely Mississippi river views, on 6/10ths of an acre of manicured gardens, a formal brick parterre garden, century old Magnolias, Azaleas and Camellias all surrounded by stately wrought iron fencing. Private, gated, concrete, 8 space well lit, off street guest parking... a 600 sq ft. income producing gift shop with large storage room sits atop a 2 car garage. There is also a 2 car carport. There are 5 guest rooms, all located in the mansion, with lovely private baths, central HVAC units in each room which is a huge factor for guests who want to control the temperature in their room.
There is a formal parlor, dining room, kitchen, 2 formal foyers, wrap around upper and lower verandahs, main floor powder room and guest laundry room.
A unique feature of this home is a 1700 sq ft, loft on the 3rd floor with dormers and exposed brick walls that offer the innkeepers complete privacy yet easy accessibility to all guests. It is a home within a home and offers so much more than just "a room" off of the kitchen for the innkeeper to live in. Great room, dining room, kitchenette, master bath, 2 bedrooms, lots of storage and a laundry room complete this very private peaceful space. There is also a private business office on the 2nd floor accessible from the 3rd floor loft that is used as a business office or non conforming 3rd bedroom. The 3rd floor loft would also be perfect as an income producing long term rental unit.

Business Description
Very well established bed and breakfast business since 1991, the current owners have elevated the status of this business to its number one ranking in Vicksburg based on Trip Advisor traveler reviews for 9 consecutive years and hold the highest 5 star rating. They have also established a quaint, free standing gift boutique located on the grounds of the home that is a great income producing asset to the business. In addition to the bed and breakfast and gift boutique, it is one of the most popular tour homes in the city due largely in part to its rare beauty and outstanding street appeal. There is a solid "walk up" business as well due to the impeccable curb appeal.
There is great potential to establish a wedding and special event venue as well as a small restaurant or tea room. The income producing possibilities are endless and you only need to bring your entrepreneurial spirit home!
The innkeeper has chosen not to operate the inn to its full income capacity due to travel. The "bottom line" could be increased significantly with full time operation.
