We accommodate groups on off-peak days in the spring and fall to supplement the normal busy bookings. 2013 revenue is with 15 weeks closure due to the owner traveling. This exquisite example of Eastlake Victorian was built in 1870 around an old 1849 Greek Revival home.

The inn has advance bookings through 2015 and obtains consistent walk-ins due to it's location. Vicksburg is a convenient stop-over spot between Atlanta and Dallas (7 & 5hrs), as well as New Orleans and Memphis (3 hrs each). Vicksburg is in the heart of the true Mississippi Delta and along the "Blues" Highway 61. The Mississippi river town is steeped in history: Native American, Civil War, Jewish, River Lore, and the Natchez Trace is just outside of town. This 450 mile long National Park is also a large draw to the region for travelers. The local area is also popular with outdoor enthusiasts for kayaking, running and cycling. Temperatures are mild right through the winter months.
