The best of Natchez

4.4 on September 17, 2014

The innkeepers here are the best, friendly and helpful and fun to be with in their B&B. They even had a list of restaurants for us to go to on a Sunday night.

A perfect time in Natchez

4.6 on August 30, 2014

It was unbelivable to spent the time in such a great place! The details of every room have shown dedication to the history of the Elms, but although respect and thoughtfulness for the visitors. It was really a highlight of our travel through the southern US.

Great place to stay

Our Stay with Esther & Mark

This was our second stay at the Elms and it remains a very enjoyable experience at a very competitive cost.

July visit to Elms

3.4 on August 01, 2014

Hospitality was wonderful. Breakfast was good and service very good. The house is old and one would expect antique surroundings but it was more "worn" than I expected.

Evening at the Elms

4.2 on July 25, 2014

We enjoyed our stay at the Elms. We were greeted by Jerry with a glass of wine, a tour of the home, and suggestions for things to do and a place to eat. The home was beautiful and our room (Kellogg Room) was great. Breakfast was delicious! We do highly recommend The Elms.

Great stay!

We went to Natchez for the first time over the 4th of July weekend. We booked a B and B because we wanted the feel of the Old South. Our expectations were exceeded by the staff, the Southern breakfast and the room. The room was clean and well-stocked, and the staff was friendly and helpful. They knew the area well and made wonderful recommendations for activities, entertainment and dining. We will definitely stay at the Elms again on a future visit to Natchez!

Our Anniversary Stay at the Elms

Derrill and I really enjoyed our first stay at The Elms and will probably make plans to return.

Amazing place

My husband and I stayed here for one night over the Memorial Weekend and we loved it. The house is steeped in history. We stayed in the Drake Room but were lucky enough to visit all of the rooms and they are all beautiful. the breakfast is really good and the attention to detail is excellent. I loved the muffins and generally everything about this place. It's in a good location too, you really can relax here. The staff are all lovely so will defo be back.

Amazing B&B
