My bride and I loved our room and the amazing staff. We highly recommend The Elms and the Kellogg room. The bed was amazingly comfy and the big tub was also. We will definitely be back!

Lovely true Natchez experience

Lovely old family home. Accommodations were spacious and well appointed. Lovely antiques and our room had a recently updated bath. Wonderful full Southern breakfast served graciously family style on family china. Grounds are lovely and loved the wraparound porch. Safe area in the downtown area convenient to attractions. Nice guest area with coffee, tee soft drinks readily available.

I Loved This Place!

Stayed in the Carpenter Suite at The Elms for 3 nights in April 2015. Natchez was a wonderful experience, and The Elms Was charming, quirky and fun. Amazing antique furnishing, lots of history, outstanding breakfasts, and beautiful grounds. Sitting on the veranda at night enjoying the moss draped trees and star lights was one of the highlights of our trip. We felt very welcome and enjoyed meeting the other guests. I'm ready to go back!

Absolutely wonderful!

The Elms is a wonderful place to stay if you are looking for a quiet place to get away! The Kellog room was very comfortable, and we had a private entrance off the veranda. The breakfast was delicious, and the service was wonderful! My husband and I stayed two nights for our anniversary weekend-will definitely be back!

Great value

Nice room with plenty of space to spread out, comfortable bed and two extra beds in the room. Bathroom had a large walk in shower that had plenty of hot water and flow, tv was a large HD screen with lots of premium cable channels, and the room was quiet at night. The breakfast was delicious every morning and lots of good coffee as well. The location is ideal for walks to shopping, dining or just looking around the historic neighborhood. The price for the room is a good value and a great stay.

Lots of fun.

The other guest where very interesting and entertaining. The location was perfect, We walked everywhere. I wish the fireplaces actually worked, but I understand it is an old home and would be a liability. Would recommend.

Highly recommended!

Stayed at The Elms for 3 nights, and was not disappointed one time. The owners were very friendly and helpful, and we were even given a tour of the home by the owner. Booked the romance package, and was very pleased with everything (fresh flowers and chocolate covered strawberries waiting in the room upon arrival. Dinner at Monmouth 1818 restaurant was also booked and included.). The breakfast that was served was really good, homemade, and served on old china in the formal dinning room. We will be booking here for our next trip!

The Elms is the only B&B i'll stay in on future Natchez trips. The house is open to explore and full of history. The Kellogg room was besutiful, the bathroom was amazing. Breakfast was served at the dining room table complete with fine china. The grounds of the house are beautifully manicured and shaded. You are just a short walk to Main St shops and the river.
