French Camp Bed and Breakfast Inn

100 Robinson Drive , French Camp, MS 39745 USA (Show map)


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.

Love the tranquility of this place the history that's all around and the wonderful service that was provided. The room was clean and very comfortable the whole house was so very warm and inviting. There was a commercial keurig available 24 hours with many different coffees and teas to choose from. The huge porch with the rockers and porch swing was so great. Breakfast was delicious and the portions were generous.

Great stay!

This was our first time staying. Really enjoyed it! The staff was friendly, knowledgable, and helpful. We stayed in the Redbud room. It was clean and cosy. I felt like I was at home. We will definitely be staying here again!

Peace and Quite.

After riding on recumbent bicycles from Jackson, Mississippi on our 2nd day of 5 days going from Natchez to Nashville, it was so nice to pull into a quite and peaceful community. The reservation staff were extremely helpful in getting us a cabin for the traveling group of 4. Wait staff at the gift shop, restaurant, and for the cabins and main building were very nice and very skilled at handling the travelers. The cabins were comfortable and at night it was so quite. The whole area is centered around the French Camp Academy and the pioneer facets of old French Camp of the very early 1800's. Breakfast the next morning was well made and filling. We needed that as we had about 98 miles to go to get to Tupelo. Compared to big town hotels and fancy places, this was peace on earth.

Burford Cabin

For our 25th Wedding Anniversary we decided to just get on the trace and drive. No plans. We happened upon French Camp by evening and inquired about a place to stay. They had several rooms and the Burford Cabin available. We chose the cabin and it was an excellent choice. The bed was so comfortable and the linens were clean and fresh. The cabin was clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. With a last minute arrival we still received a Sunday breakfast basket. I highly recommend staying at the French Camp B&B and we will definitely be coming back.

Enjoyed my stay at the B&B jr

Thanks so much for everything; I loved my stay at the log cabin. Everyone was so kind. The BLT at Council House Café was the best! We will stay again . Thanks! Brenda

I could hear the sounds of silence. The Memphis Guest house was a hotel room style accommodation with an excellent porch overlooking gorgeous wooded landscape conducive for hot coffee and reading while rocking and listening to the breeze in the trees.

Great get away to the country!!!

Great place to stay and very helpful staff. We were arriving after check-in time when someone would be available. Made the call and they made the arrangements for my key to be in the room ready for us to hair walk in at the main house. Comfortable bed and room. Had a restful night!!!

You will not be disappointed!

Check-in was quick, and the staff was friendly and helpful. We rented the Burford Cabin, because we had a dog. Thank goodness for pet-friendly accommodations! The cabin was well-equipped, clean, and very comfortable. Since there was no TV, radio, or in-room wi-fi I decided to turn off my phone and enjoy the disconnect. A hearty breakfast with a smile was a great way to start the day. I would recommend this B&B to anyone without hesitation.

Loved, Loved, Loved It!

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.

Relaxation and cleanliness

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.
