About

Situated on the highest promontory overlooking the mighty Mississippi River south of St. Louis, The Briars, circa 1812, is one of the finest examples of early southern plantation-style architecture. It is renowned historically as the residence where Jefferson Davis married Varina Howell in 1845. When our guests drive through the gates of The Briars, they enter a world touched with the magic, peace and beauty of Camelot, but with the amenities of the Twenty-first Century. Office Hours: Monday-Sunday 8am - 5:30pm

Romantic Anniversary Getaway

4.8 on January 06, 2014

My husband and I and another couple stay at the Briars Bed and Breakfast Jan. 3-5 for our 17th Anniversary. The staff at this place is exceptional! They make sure you are well taken care of!! Glenda, the cook is absolutely amazing!!! Her grits and homemade fried chicken, as well as her filet were absolutely incredible!! You will not taste better grits anywhere!! We stayed in the Gardenvue and our friends stayed in the Rivervue. The Rivervue controls the temp for both rooms and it also only has a shower. The only view the Gardenvue has is from the garden tub. However, is a balcony overlooking the gardens and the pool. Thank you Mr. Leon and staff for a great anniversary weekend getaway!! Natchez is a beautiful place!


Beautiful!!!!

Wedding Adventure

5 on January 18, 2013

In Oct 2012, The Briar's hosted my wedding! It was everything I could have asked for! Kristy and Leon were very helpful when it came to my needs of making sure my day was perfect. The staff was very friendly and helpful and went way out of their way to show that they were there to serve. I would not have changed one thing about my wedding! The view was absolutely amazing! The rooms were very homely and comfortable! Breakfast was great, especially if you want that southern style breakfast!
