Painstakingly and lovingly renovated, Violet Hill Bed and Breakfast provides an elegant and relaxing atmosphere, inside and out. Whether it's here, in the luxurious living area, in one of the porch swings on the veranda, or on the gazebo dock downhill on the riverfront, you're sure to enjoy your stay.

My son was getting married March 22, 2014. My Husband,myself and daughter had stayed at the Violet Hill prior and instantly fell in love with the home and outstanding service. So when my son proposed, we booked the entire house for family and friends flying/driving in from out of state, so we would have a wonderful place to stay the entire weekend March21-March24th. Every one had their own beautiful private room and bath to get ready for the wedding and then an absolutely wonderful place for us to gather before and after the wedding. I have to say, that I have stayed at many Bed and Breakfasts, but the Violet Hill is by far my favorite. We were treated like family, every thing our hearts desired was provided, including wonderful breakfasts served at a time we chose to make sure every one was up and ready (in our jammies) for breakfast. John (Innkeeper/Owner) Served us the most delicious breakfasts and we were able to pick which kind of breakfast we wanted. He accommodated our every need, any thing we did need, just a call and he was there lickedey split! The river view from the back veranda and covered boat dock is amazing. We had a wonderful Sunday morning family get together, playing guitar and singing, with many little cousins enjoying the back yard. It was perfectly wonderful. The rooms are outstanding, clean and spacious, with comfy beds and pillows. A room for everyone's needs. Our visitors from out of town were so impressed with the home and service provided by the housekeepers and John. It couldn't have been more perfect. I want to thank John and his staff personally for making my sons wedding so wonderful before and after.Thank you John for making this special occasion even better. have a family reunion, The Violet Hill will be the spot!!!! I can go on and on, but I wont. Unbelievable John, Thank you so much for your never ending hospitality and making every one feel as if they were home.

Just returned home from a another visit to Violet Hill B&B & I am convinced that this is by far my favorite B&B! Charles, my friend, you are second to none - you absolutely make the stay the most pleasant experience! The rooms are neat & clean, but the real treat is the fantastic breakfast - served to guests by the best host ever. Charles is full of information regarding the history of the town & places of interest. You will not be disappointed when staying at Violet Hill B&B - it's awesome! Kelly

Nestled between Jefferson Street and the Cane River Lake, sits this gem of a Bed and Breakfast, in Natchitoches. Organization, communication, and courtesy are the tenets of this quaint establishment. The room was spotless with additional creature comforts, often overlooked, as a staple in this décor. Charles is the cog of this elegantly balanced system of interlocked gears. He is the epitome of customer service and a superior breakfast chef as well. If you look up “host” in the dictionary, there he is, a picture of Charles, as he is truly representative in all facets of the definition. Our first visit was this past weekend and by the time we got home Sunday, I was already looking for the next available date to book The Prince Haithcoat Suite. We will be back in November! Thank you, Charles for such a memorable stay and that is now the first of many visits we plan to make.

This was the first time we had stayed in a Bed and Breakfast. I received a gift certificate for my birthday at one of the 4 homes. In looking over the choices, we decided on Violet since it was on Cane River Lake. It was a wonderful experience. The room was so nice as well as the bathroom. After shopping down Front street,we went down to the dock and sat enjoying the cool breeze's. Sunday morning we were treated to great conversation at breakfast and a wonderful meal served by Charles. That guy is the best! He sincerely wants to make sure your stay is without any wants. A great weekend, and we will be back.

I can't say enough about Violet Hill. It was awesome. The room and the view from John Reavls room was beautiful. The breakfast was unbelievable! Charles LaCaze is perfect at his job. He couldn't have been more accomodating, no matter what. His breakfasts were unbelievable and I'm from New Orleans and work in Food and Beverage and I was so impressed. He greeted you everyday with a smile and you could hear him singing in the kitchen. He was just a joy and it was obvious he enjoys his job! What a a treasure. I would definitely recommend staying there and hope to do so again in the near future!

If we could give Six stars on Food and Service we would!! The two breakfasts that we were served were fit for a King... And a very hungry one at that! Delicious food, wonderful presentation and extremely attentive service! Our coffee cups never got close to being half empty before Charles was there filling them again! We had the pleasure of dining with some extraordinary couples from near and far. And sitting on the dock each morning, drinking coffee and reading our books, with the peaceful river before us was so relaxing! It was a perfect weekend, thanks to Charles' wonderful Southern hospitality!

My husband and I decided that we needed a weekend away and after making the decision that we would go to Natchitoches, I set about researching places to stay, After much internet browsing, we chose the Violet Hill B&B based on reviews, pictures and descriptions. And we definitely made the right choice. We stayed in the Arthur Coble Room, a beautifully appointed room, large bathroom w/jacuzzi for two, located at the back of the house with easy access to the back gallery (porch/deck). Sitting on the back gallery overlooking Cane River Lake was SO beautiful and relaxing,, ran the entire length of the back of the home, complete with porch swing. Although on Saturday night, there was a full house, we never knew it until breakfast the next morning when we met the other guests. The way that the inn is laid out, all of the rooms and/or suites are private. The property is really beautiful and very comfortable (our bed/mattress was awesome), but the very best asset of the Violet Hill is the excellent Innkeeper, Charles. He prepared beautiful 2 course breakfasts for us both mornings, catered to our every whim. If he even heard us mention something that we would like to find or something we would like to do, within minutes, he appeared with written information about it. He could not have been more accommodating, always smiling (or singing), but not in an intrusive way...........the perfect combination of being there and not being there, if you know what I mean. We absolutely love Charles and will definitely return to Violet Hill because of him. If you are on the fence about this B&B, just book it...........you will not be disappointed!!
