French Camp Academy’s Bed and Breakfast is one of the few B & Bs located adjacent to the Natchez Trace Parkway. In 1986, French Camp Academy moved two clerestory log cabins built between 1840 and 1870 from Eupora, Mississippi to French Camp. They were placed side by side and joined together with an addition matching the period architecture. Some of the original pine logs are 18 inches in diameter. The inn officially began receiving visitors in March 1987. Since that time the inn has grown to include two additional adjacent log cabins and a small cottage. French Camp Bed and Breakfast Inn is located in central Mississippi.

We booked the B&B rooms and all three cabins for a family reunion. Everything was great, and the staff were friendly. We felt very much at home and comfortable. Our age range was from 5 months to 74 years, and everyone had a wonderful time. We loved the historic location and buildings. I have already recommended it to a lot of my friends and co-workers.

What a wonderful time we had at the French Camp Bed and Breakfast! We never had to worry about a thing - breakfast was a scrumptious "breakfast basket" (Sunday morning) and we really enjoyed the Keurig coffeemaker. Sitting on the front porch in the morning, enjoying that cup of coffee was heaven. I especially loved the crisp, white linens and beautiful clean decor. We also signed up for the Carriage Ride, and that was a real treat, picking us up at our cabin. I highly recommend you stay at the French Camp Bed and Breakfast - on the Natchez Trace, friendly and professional staff, a clean and restful environment, porch swings, gorgeous green trees all around. You feel like you step back in time when things were slower and nicer.

What fun we had during our stay. We stayed in the Bed & Breakfast in Sally & Ed's rooms and we enjoyed ourself so much. So many wonderful people and the service was great. We enjoyed the breakfast and the grounds of French Camp are simply beautiful. This is a perfect getaway for the weekend. We talked to some of the students and they are so friendly and were just a delight to talk to. Well worth the money spent and we'll do it again soon.

A sweet, quaint, camp style housing. Our room was ok, but don't expect shampoo or lotion to be provided. Very rustic. Great big porch with rockers secluded in the woods. We had a little difficulty locating it due to the lack of a sign in front of the actual Guest House. If it rains then parking will get muddy but for our visit it was clear. The Friday night steaks were delicious but there wasn't any live music that the website boasted. Overall, we had a lovely time and the people were very friendly. We went on Pioneer Day and enjoyed the local arts and crafts and music as well.
Thank you so much for your review! I am so glad you enjoyed your time with us. I do want to mention that the room you stayed in is not one of our bed and breakfast rooms, but one of the rooms at our retreat center, which is a different facility. These rooms are a little simpler than our rooms at our bed and breakfast. We certainly hope to have the pleasure of having you with us again in the near future!

Very peaceful and relaxing woodland setting. I have been three times and love it. Great breakfast but only at 8 a.m. Rooms in main house a bit low if you are tall but great linens!
Thank you so much for your review and for staying with us!

We stayed in the Carriage House on two seperate visits. Everyone was so nice and answered all our questions. The Carriage house was way beyond what we expected. Washer, Dryer, stove, fridge, microwave, coffee maker! Everything was very clean. Beds were comfortable. the grounds were awesome. We were on a color change extended weekend and the colors were beautiful, and everything was done up in a fall motif. Sarah and her loveley coworker prepared a great breakfast and conversation was so informative. Summer was the greatest hostes in getting us in and out and in again, because we locked the door with the key on the table, dugh. the gift shpo was a delight, the miniture hourses were too cute. You can't go wrong in spending the night or just stoping by for a brief visit. The history and the current mission is awe inspiring. This was our first stay at a bed and breakfast and none of us knew what to expect. French camp has set the bar of any other facility.! I feel confident that anyone would enjoy their visit any time of year! Kathryn, Tony, Geri and Chuck November 2013

French Camp is so peaceful. This was a day of celebrating, but was quiet, beautiful and a time of rest. Our room was very clean. The service and dining was outstanding. The steak night was great. The cabins and main house brings memories of the time we grew up, just more comfort now. The staff was precious, so helpful in every way. What a sweet spirit!! We will be back!!! Ann

The house was quaint. The room, Ed's Room, was charming: the little bathroom spotlessly clean. The basket of fruit, juice and pastries were appreciated for Sunday morning breakfast. It was heartening to be trusted to let oneself into the house and to leave the key upon leaving.
