Ron & Mimi were so nice and helpful. We unexpectedly made it to the hotel early and they made arrangements for us. The breakfast the next morning was divine. Mimi cooked bacon, sausage, eggs, blueberry pancakes, grits and biscuits all from scratch. They made lots of suggestions that helped us make the most of our stay. Highly Recommended!

It was really unfortunate I was only able to stay just one night. The room was wonderful; spacious, spotless and very comfortable. The location was superb; close to downtown, easy to find and well marked. I was welcomed by Ron, and enjoyed Ron's insights into the area. This was my first trip to Natchez; Ron and Mimi made it memorable. Thank you.

We had a wonderful stay at Ron's and Mimi's house. The breakfasts cooked by Ron were pantagruelic and tasty (we will remember for ever the so delicious taste of his biscuits ... really to die!). The bedroom was spacious, very pretty and comfortable with a beautiful antic bed, a big bathroom including all that you need. As a bonus, Ron took the time to give us a lot of great suggestions on places to visit in Natchez and near to Natchez too. Also very helpful, you can relax on the charming living room of the house, reading interesting books on plantations in Louisiana ... etc and selecting the restaurant for your next dinner in town (Ron has prepared a list of the best restaurants in Natchez including the full menu of each one ! ). We really recommend this B&B at 100 %, you will have a very pleasant stay and you will know everything on what to see in Natchez! Thanks so much, Ron and Mimi, for this very pleasant stay in our house !

My rooom was spacious and the bed very comfortable; the bathroom was also spacious and very clean. The hosts, Ron and Mimi MIller, were very welcoming and extremely helpful about where to visit so one could enjoy Natchez fully. Breakfast was delicious with many freshly made choices. The house is attractively furnished with many period pieces adding to the whole Natchez experience. I fully recommend Wenzel House for an enjoyable stay. Antonia from London

I am a returning guest. I stayed at the Wensel house in the summer for a weekend getaway and loved the house, the Millers, and Natchez. I decided to return to spend my anniversary there. I plan to be a repeat guest as often as possible.

La estancia fue maravillosa, las habitaciones insuperables, no les faltaba ningún tipo de detalle, las sabanas y toallas son increíblemente suaves, la casa es preciosa. Ron y Mimi son estupendos, nos trataron como si estuviéramos en casa, punto muy a su favor fue, que Ron habla español y tuvimos una conversación muy interesante con él, ademas nos contó un montón de cosas de la ciudad y nos sugirió sitios donde cenar. Mimi hace un desayuno sureño genial, te da energía para todo el día. En definitiva, ojala hubiéramos estado mas días para disfrutar de un lugar tan estupendo.

We enjoyed our 3-night stay last weekend immensely! The room was furnished in antiques with a comfortable queen sized bed and was very quiet. The breakfast was delicious and filling so much so we only needed a light lunch. The blueberry pancakes were scrumptious! Location is perfect for walking historic Natchez and close to many sites. Ron and Mimi are wonderful hosts and both are a wealth of information about local history as well as attractions and nearby restaurants. We learned so much about Natchez history from talking with them! We would recommend 1888 Wenzel House to anyone visiting Natchez.

Had a wonderful one night stay at 1888 Wensell House - Ron & Mimi are engaging, genial hosts and looked after us magnificently. The property is very well appointed and in a great location for viewing Natchez sites. The delicious Douthern breakfast, complete with creamy grits was a great touch! Highly recommended.

The house has been restored to its pre CIvil War condition with period furnishings. The house is beautifully kept and we had a spacious room with a large en-suite bathroom. The owners are a lovely couple who are clearly Anglophiles and work for the local historical society. We just wish we had been able to talk longer with them about the local area and the US generally. Breakfast was very tasty and clearly a typical old style Southern fare and they did proper English teas.If we visit Natchez again we will stay here again.

We were greeted by Ron at the front door and taken on a tour of the property.We were able to choose exactly what we wanted for breakfast,and it was awesome the next morning. The room was large and very clean. Ron gave us an excellent suggestion for dinner which we thoroughly enjoyed.Mimi and Ron were excellent hosts and we enjoyed talking to them. I feel it was an excellent value for the money! We will return when we are in Natchez again.
