Sit in high back rockers and soak in the magnificent sunsets over the Mississippi River, return to a gentler time inside in the exquisite double parlour or relax on the back verandah with lemonade and enjoy the lush gardens and incredible crepe myrtles. Atop a bluff overlooking the Mississippi Valley, The Corners was built with love in 1873 as a wedding gift to the oldest daughter of John and Elizabeth Klein, Susan Klein when she married Issac Bonham in 1872. The 68 foot front gallery has the symbols of love and marriage carved in its "Vicksburg" pierced columns. Our views of the rivers are the best and most expansive of any B&B in Vicksburg. Herb Phillips, the freelance travel writer gave The Corners the honor of "The Best B&B in the World".

Macy is a wonderful hostess and tour guide, for both The Corners and for the whole of Vicksburg. My husband and I found The Corners by chance and were really happy for our discovery. Our room was lovely: comfortable bed, soft carpets, nice furniture. The adjoining bathroom was huge with tub/shower and a large closet. The house itself is a treasure trove of period pieces and memorabilia as well as books about its history compiled by Macy – so much fun stuff to discover in the parlor – and it has a grand piano! The breakfasts (by Joe) were huge (forget about lunch!) and delicious and it's always fun to meet other travelers over a meal. Don't miss the nearby Vicksburg Civil War Park and the Riverfront murals.

The mansion was absolutely gorgeous. Everything was antique looking and the room, oh the room was amazing. I stayed in the galleries 2 and it was so simple yet so elegant. The bathtub was huge and the ceilings were high and gorgeous. Outside the room we had two rocking chairs and a high porch to look off of. The area, the room, the whole stay was just amazing.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Corners. Macy immediately makes you feel at home. The home is nicely decorated in the period without excessive knick-knacks. Breakfast was great! We will definitely stay here again!
