We had an AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL wedding here in March 2014. Mrs. Burnette exceeded any and every expectation we could have ever desired. She accommodated all of our wedding arrangements and more. We had the most spectacular wedding anyone could ever imagine, that thanks to Mrs. Brunette customized the ceremony around our desires to include our 7 children and 4 best friends. We all stay the night prior to the wedding at the B&B (in addition to our 2 mothers) and had PLENTY of room for everyone. There's no place on earth I would recommend higher/more than Shadowlawn Bed and Breakfast with Mrs. Brunette. If ur looking for a PERFECT Wedding Day, she will make it perfect in every aspect possible along with the beautiful annebelle home to go along with it. She was not just our Wedding Coordinator, she became a VERY special friend to us and holds that spot in our hearts forever more.

excellent stay at Shadowlawn

We arrived late, but was met by the lovely owner Burnette Avakian Our room was spacious and My husband loved the king sized bed. We were welcomed and our hostess recommended a wonderful restaurant close by. Breakfast was beautifully served and delicious. We would definitely stay again. The rates were perfect.

Delightful Experience!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Shadowland. Burnette was a wonderful hostess, and we so enjoyed getting to know her. Her home was lovely, and her cooking was amazing. We loved being pampered at breakfast, with her tasty dishes and elegantly decorated dining room table. We certainly plan on returning!

Beautiful home with amazing charm!

We hosted a bachelorette party at Shadowlawn bed and breakfast, and had amazing suggestions for rooms from the Inkeeper (Ms. Burnette). She suggested two rooms that could adjoin, each with their own bathroom. We were able to exchange gifts and spend lots of time together but have privacy when needed. The breakfast was a definite highlight of our trip to Columbus. Each course was thoughtfully presented, beautiful and most importantly delicious. We were very happy with our experience at Shadowlawn and can't wait to stay again!

Heaven on Earth

What a precious experience it was to stay at this Antebellum Bed and Breakfast. It is warm, inviting and full of treasures and history. The owner does a beautiful job of hosting and serving each person who visits her home. She and her lovely puppy, Caesar, truly have the gift of hospitality and you feel loved and well taken care of. The breakfasts are delicious and homemade specifically for you and presented with such care and detail. My whole family cannot wait to visit Shadowlawn again. The Crouches love Ms. Burnette and Sir Caesar the greeter!

Gorgeous Home for a Southern Wedding!!

5 on July 25, 2014

I recently attended a memorable and nostalgic wedding at Shadowlawn Bed and Breakfast in Columbus, MS. This beautifully decorated antebellum home with gorgeous antiques and a cascading staircase accented the wedding tremendously. After the ceremony, the bride, groom, wedding party and guests sat down together at a gorgeously set table with beautiful silver and lovely flower arrangements.. We enjoyed a delicious dinner served by Burnette Avakian, the gracious hostess and owner of the home and her lovely staff. This special wedding will be one I will never forget. I would recommend Shadowlawn Bed and Breakfast to anyone looking for an impressive place to have a unique experience of a southern wedding.

Wonderful Place to Stay for Wedding Anniversary

5 on July 07, 2014

My wife and I recently stayed here to celebrate our wedding anniversary. I booked the Victorian King room as a total surprise for her, and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Burnette is a great host and cooks delicious breakfast choices. We had a wonderful time and would highly recommend Shadowlawn to Christian couples who are looking for a romantic getaway.

We stayed here for 2 nights last week, and loved every min of it! Mrs Burnette is so sweet and such a wonderful host! We had an amazing breakfast both morning and I slep so good in the king size bed. Her and her daughter goes above and beyond. We will be back again next year!!!

Beautiful, comfortable, and most satisfying.

We were in Columbus to enjoy the Pilgrimage of Southern Homes. We chose Shadowlawn from all the available B&B listed on the net. We stayed in the Victorian King Suit and were extremely pleased with the room and the bed. The owner serves a breakfast to die for each morning. You will not be disappointed. The house is full of beautiful antiques and the owner is a very gracious host. Very convenient to all the sites. We highly recommend Shadowlawn. Jim & Jo.

The Best Night's Sleep

5 on March 02, 2014

My husband and I went here on our honeymoon and it was a lovely escape from reality. The room was perfect, the bathroom was more than we thought it could be, and the house itself was exceptional. We have two children and having such a wonderful sleep and a fantastic bed was just what we needed. Breakfast of apple crumble and Monte Cristo was truly delightful. Ms. Burnette was eager to do anything to make sure our stay was perfect and I can not recommend staying at Shadowlawn more. It was completely worth every penny.
