We really enjoyed our stay, Christine was a really freindly host, and a great cook. The house is delightful and has excellent reference books about Natchez as well. we would certainly stay again.

Relaxing stay

5 on May 03, 2015

Natchez is a great walking town. We parked our car on Friday and didn't need it until we left. Bisland House was very comfortable and relaxing. We especially enjoyed the front porch swing! Don't miss the sunsets over the river, carriage rides of the city, and of course tours of the historic homes. And yes the breakfast's were great.

Bikers' Refuge In The Rain

5 on May 02, 2015

Stayed at Bisland House during a recent trip to Eastern Texas for a motorcycle gathering. We had ridden the last two hours in pouring rain and were arriving rather late, and Byron and Christine had already made room for our bikes in their car shed. We got out of our rain gear, settled in our lovely upstairs room, and later had a nice light dinner within easy walking distance downtown. Our room was very comfortable and breakfast next morning was excellent along with the great conversation with Christine and the other guests. Just a lovely stay - we wish we had a second day in Natchez to tour the city and we hope to return for another night. Motorcyclists are made to feel very welcome at Bisland House given that Byron and Christine ride themselves. We were grateful for their warmth and hospitality.

Excellent choice for a B&B.

Everything about Bisland House was perfect. Rooms were clean, host was very accommodating, and breakfast was great. The location is perfect - just a few short blocks from both Main St. and Canal. Lots of restaurants and bars within the area. The second floor balcony is great at night as the area is very quiet and peaceful.

Home away from home!

This was our 2nd time at Bisland House B & B. We stayed in the downstairs room this time, and we loved it! The Tims are fabulous hosts and go out of their way to make you feel at home. It truly is like staying with friends! Janet & Johnny

Great start to Natchz holiday

Visiting Natchez from Grande Prairie, Alberta, Canada for Spring Pilgrimage. Appreciated Christine as host, she sent additional info on Pilgrimage and Natchez after we confirmed our stay which was appreciated. Vert welcoming. Room a little smaller but the massive amount of 'public' space in the living room and two verandahs more than made up for this. Breakfast was fabulous as was location just off Main street.

Ideal stay in Natchez

5 on April 07, 2015

We had a very pleasant stay in the Jessi room and were showed great hospitality. The southern breakfast where you got a chance to converse with the other guests was also very nice. Not to mention the bargain aspect, which at 50% of the local bigger hotels i a real bargain. Highly recommended!

We stayed in the first floor room during Spring Pilgrimage. Christine provided recommendations for tours and information about the St. Patrick's Day parade which was just a walk away. Everything was convenient. Our room was huge with a comfortable bed and breakfast was delicious.

Lovely b&b

Only had a one night stay, but wish it had been longer. Bisland house is a beautiful old home within walking distance of restaurants, the river, and other Natchez sights. Christine was a great host, friendly and helpful but not overly intrusive. Breakfast was great, including the best biscuits we had during our week long trip to Louisiana and Mississippi.

Wonderful Stay at Bisland House

5 on March 28, 2015

Christine was the sweetest ad add our stay at her wonderful home, Bisland House, all the more enjoyable. From our morning chats around her dining table to checking in on us throught the day, she went well beyond showing us her southern hospitality.
