A great B & B in a great city. The room was perfect for a couple, the entire house a museum, the owners a wealth of knowledge about the city. We have stayed at B & B's in Europe and the US and this B & B is among the very best. We highly recommend this B & B to any and all who visit Natchez. It is a great value and a great place to stay.
My friends and I had a fantastic stay at the Wilkins Town House. The inn keeper could not have been more perfect- she interacted with us just the right amount and cooked delicious breakfasts for us. The room was great and we all loved the courtyard too! We will definitely choose to stay at the Wilkins Town House on our next trip to Natchez.
We had never done a B&B before and thought we would give it a try. We very much enjoyed the grounds and our room was great.... but then I don't normally sleep in a 4-poster bed so am easily impressed The other guests were very pleasant and the breakfast was excellent. We will be doing other B&B's in the future do to the great experience here.
Great place. The breakfasts were fabulous! Centrally located with lots of charming houses around us and close to town. One suggestion would be to have more places to hang towels as there were two of us and only one towel rack.
The stay at Wilkins, during the Spring Pilgrimage 2016, was our first visit to this B&B...it will DEFINITELY not be our last. Jean Moffett proved to be a charming concierge, cook, host and personal resource for current and historical information on Natchez. When we were making (often changing) our reservations Ginger Seguin spent countless hours holding our hand and making sure we knew how much our patronage was appreciated. This is THE PLACE for an intimate Natchez experience with a staff dedicated to insuring a pleasant experience. Ralph Williams, Little Rock, AR.
John and Valarie are the perfect Host and Hostess. The home is awesome and staying at Pleasant Hill is a Must Memory Maker. The rooms are beautiful and the food is outstanding exceeded only by the generosity of John and Valarie. Thank you for taking care of us so well. We want to return and experience it all over again.

My wife and I stayed at Pleasant Hill over Easter Weekend in 2016. This coincided with the Spring Pilgrimage, which is an extremely busy time in Natchez. John and Valerie went to the extreme to make our stay with them delightful and memorable. We will absolutely return to Natchez and stay with the Bergerons. Again, thank you John and Valerie.
If you want to stay in a wonderful historic home this is your place. Christine has worked hard to consider every little detail (the way they would have liked it to be if they were the guests instead of the hosts). She was able to provide great supper recommendations as well. Staying at the Bisland made our visit in Natchez more special.
Natchez was one of the first places we visited together, so when it came time for our 20th wedding anniversary we thought it would be the perfect place to visit again. We were eager to stay in one of the many Victorian B&B's there and decided on the Starling's Rest. And boy are we glad we did! This B&B and our host Paul exceeded all of our expectations. The room and bed were charming and comfortable, and the home was very convenient to all of the area attractions. And we have never experienced hospitality like that given by Paul. Then on top of everything else, the price was less than you would expect to pay at the Hampton Inn! If you're planning a visit to Natchez and want to stay someplace special, I don't think you can do better than the Starling's Rest. We will certainly be back again!
Lovely old family home. Accommodations were spacious and well appointed. Lovely antiques and our room had a recently updated bath. Wonderful full Southern breakfast served graciously family style on family china. Grounds are lovely and loved the wraparound porch. Safe area in the downtown area convenient to attractions. Nice guest area with coffee, tee soft drinks readily available.
The home was nice, not over the top, yet it was SO reasonable in price it was certainly worth it. A challenge I had was the AC would only cool to 74 degrees and that was just too hot for me :) Also, you had to share a bathroom with 3 other rooms and that was a real challenge. I would stay again and get the downstairs Master with a private bathroom!!
I was impressed with the overall stay. Jean was so unbelievably sweet and such a help throughout our time in Natchez, suggesting restaurants and sight seeing destinations. Breakfast was fabulous as well. I would definitely recommend this B and B.
Arrived on a Tuesday to spend one night then on to our destination in La. It was a very comfortable and spacious rooms. The manager of the property was very nice and informative of the property and town. It is a easy walk to Main st and stores nearby, but during the weekdays and in Feb, it was very quiet. The breakfast she served was a good ole southern breakfast that we loved. Also there is a great courtyard where you can enjoy relaxing!!
The bedroom we stayed in was the blue room and it was spacious and comfortable! the high ceilings and big windows felt very welcoming. I loved the touch of bathrobes in the room. The bathroom was a shared one so be prepared to be flexible about shower times as other guests could be occupying the room. The host was the absolute best! With lots of information and tips about the area and a great willingness to give suggestions and tidbits of information. He is a pro! the breakfast had excellent variety of continental choices and there were a bunch of newspapers to read over coffee. We would absolutely stay here again and i encourage you to also!
Warm greeted my the house keeper Lorraine and introduced to Ron and Eleanor the owners who made sure every guest was well looked after by ensuring they had everything they needed. Nothing too much trouble. It was a privilege to stay in such elegant surroundings. Our bedroom was large, clean and a huge, comfortable bed with luxury linens. The bathroom had recently been renovated and had a spa bath which unfortunately we didn't use. I had arranged for the celebration package for my husband who celebrated his 50th birthday the day we arrived and this was waiting in the room and a bottle of bubbly in the fridge ready for us when we wanted it. The breakfasts were filling and most of tasty. The wine and cheese reception was a great way to meet other guests and swap stories.
Stayed in the Carpenter Suite at The Elms for 3 nights in April 2015. Natchez was a wonderful experience, and The Elms Was charming, quirky and fun. Amazing antique furnishing, lots of history, outstanding breakfasts, and beautiful grounds. Sitting on the veranda at night enjoying the moss draped trees and star lights was one of the highlights of our trip. We felt very welcome and enjoyed meeting the other guests. I'm ready to go back!

We arrived to find a note placed on a door telling us to follow arrows to the room and never were greeted by staff although some other guests were around who were nice. Our granddaughter kept us up that night and we overslept the breakfast time to be awakened by loud knocking on our door that breakfast had started and then more loud knocking about fifteen minutes later. We could not get there in time and when we came out about 45 minutes later were told the breakfast and tour was over so we missed it. There was no attempt to even let us look around or anything so we just left then.
The Elms is a wonderful place to stay if you are looking for a quiet place to get away! The Kellog room was very comfortable, and we had a private entrance off the veranda. The breakfast was delicious, and the service was wonderful! My husband and I stayed two nights for our anniversary weekend-will definitely be back!
Nice room with plenty of space to spread out, comfortable bed and two extra beds in the room. Bathroom had a large walk in shower that had plenty of hot water and flow, tv was a large HD screen with lots of premium cable channels, and the room was quiet at night. The breakfast was delicious every morning and lots of good coffee as well. The location is ideal for walks to shopping, dining or just looking around the historic neighborhood. The price for the room is a good value and a great stay.
The other guest where very interesting and entertaining. The location was perfect, We walked everywhere. I wish the fireplaces actually worked, but I understand it is an old home and would be a liability. Would recommend.
The house is beautiful and benefits from very comfortable facilities. Paul, the proprietor, was very nice and available to give help and suggestions on Natchez and New Orleans as well. We would recommend the Starling's Rest without any doubt!
We have stayed at numerous B&B's over the years and Bisland House ranks as one of the best. We booked a weekend stay during the Christmas Holidays and had a great time. We toured four spectacular homes. There are so many things to do in Natchez that we could have stayed longer. Christine was very helpful giving us suggestions on things to do in the area. Breakfast was great. The food was delicious and the portions were large. There was no need for lunch after a breakfast like we had. We stayed in Jessie's Room upstairs. The room was very comfortable and large enough for our needs. The Bisland House is a very lovely home and we will definitely return.
