About

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.

A Step Back in Time

4.4 on August 17, 2016

French Camp B&B is a unique, peaceful retreat that's a welcome escape from the everyday grind. We stayed over on a rainy night during the week and pretty much had the place to ourselves. I loved sitting out in a rocking chair on the big front porch, looking out on the green fields and hearing the rain pelt against the roof. As a writer of historical fiction, I could imagine writing my next novel tucked away in one of the guest cabins.

This was my first stay in a B&B and I was sold. I had a great time and intend to go back. My wife and I were treated first class. Absolutly no issues.


Best on the Trace

This is one of the best kept secrets. Recommend a stay if you can!


Interesting and restful stop on the Natchez Trace Parkway

4.6 on July 23, 2016

Most comfortable sheets and pillows we've ever slept on. Beautiful site with historic buildings, gift shop and modest adjacent cafe for lunch and dinner, and excellent breakfast in the main historic building at the B&B. Explore the historic cabins, read the inscriptions on the family cemetery monuments, and pet the ponies next to the barn and blacksmith shop. Tiny town with P.O. to mail postcards from your trip.


Not simply a place to spend the night, it is a destination!

There are not enough superlatives to give adequate accolades to the French Camp Inn! This is not simply a place to spend the night, it is a destination! Though the inn is created from two or three log houses from the mid-1800s and has all the warmth and beauty imaginable, it has the luxurious, modern creature comforts that I enjoy. Included was a fabulous (and generous portioned) breakfast served beautifully. In addition to the delights of the FC Inn, I took a morning walk through the French Camp Historic District. My only disappointment... I wished I had known how wonderful it would be and I would have stayed longer.


Delightful Respite

We were told about French Camp B&B and decided to try it. It was the perfect compliment to our Trace drive. We stayed in the main house and sat on the front porch in the evening. Breakfast was totally delicious.

Great Place for Nice Escape

If you are looking for a great place to relax and escape this is the place for it.


Unique!

5 on January 16, 2016

We stayed in the Burford Cabin, which had a very comfortable king bed downstairs and a kitchenette with a Keurig coffee maker. The bed linens and towels were luxurious. We had no TV or wi-fi in the cabin, but walked a few steps to the Main House when we needed wi-fi. The breakfast was fancy & delicious, but we would have been satisfied with a down-home country breakfast as well! Staff was friendly and helpful. Walking around the whole area was so interesting, and we bought bread from the bakery. Beautiful place! We hope to come back.
