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.

Last Christmas, our children gifted us with a 3-night stay in a Natchitoches bed and breakfast. We decided we better use it before it expired. There were about four B&B's we could choose from. We chose Violet Hill and I'm so glad we did. We had a wonderful time! Todd, one of the owners, was so friendly and accommodating…not to mention his cooking skills! Every morning we sat in the beautiful dining room and had a delicious breakfast prepared by Todd (Todd, I'm still waiting for my Peach Crisp recipe). Violet Hill sits on the Cane River and the back porch and deck overlooking the river is just fabulous. It was especially nice because there were Christmas lights and decorations all down the river. The historic district (in walking distance) was beautifully decorated with lights and Christmas music played while we walked and shopped in all the unique shops along Front St. We also enjoyed visiting the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame. All I can say is that I had a wonderful time and would definitely go back and stay at Violet Hill. H. Burns ("Fran")

My wife and I spent her birthday weekend here and visiting Natchitoches. Great, Great place to stay!!! Rooms were VERY cool, John the owner, proprietor and chef was really welcoming and charming. There was nothing we wanted for. He managed to cater to our every need and yet was nearly invisible the whole time. We had the run of the place and were able to enjoy our weekend on our own schedule. I would heartily recommend this place to anyone!!!

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.
