This 1888 Victorian town house is completely-renovated, beautifully furnished with antiques, and situated in the heart of the historic district across the trolley stop and carriage rides. Guests have full use of the parlor and dining room, where they enjoy morning papers, fresh fruit, and soft drinks available 24 hours a day. A generous freshly-cooked plantation breakfast is served in the dining room. Guests occupy a cozy 5-room cottage in the back yard or one of three large upstairs rooms in the main house. The cottage has two double beds, one bath with tub-shower, plus kitchen, dining room, and living room with TV. Each bedroom in the main house has two beds (a single and a queen), modern bathroom with tub-shower and hairdryer, telephone, remote-controlled cable color TV, & iron and ironing board. The First Room contains American antiques, including a high-post hand-carved bed. The Oak Room features carved "Golden Oak" turn-of-the-century antiques. The Front Room is furnished in mid-19th century antiques with a low-post 1835 bed.

Stayed for a quick overnight trip! Wonderful place to stay! Breakfast was wonderful - did not really need to eat the remainder of the day (even though we did!) Will recommend Wensel house to friends!

Wonderful hosts, and beautiful B&B. I would definitely recommend 1888 Wensel House.

Superb B&B experience

Ron and Mimi Miller are perfect hosts, very thoughtful and knowledgeable about the area and history. A visit to Natchez is all about the historical treasures and experience. This is a perfect place to experience Natchez. Close to many main attractions, and in a lovely old restored Victorian home with easy parking in back. Great restaurants within walking distance. Southern hospitality and graciousness through and through.
