Beautiful B&B!

4.6 on February 11, 2015

I loved The Elms. It is a very elegant home, but somehow it feels like you're at home. Perhaps one reason why I felt so comfortable there was that Mr. Jerry made me feel as though it was my home for the evening. He is so wonderful and truly helped to make my stay there memorable. I would definitely return to The Elms.

Relaxing getaway

Jerry met us when we arrived and showed us atound the home. We had a nice relaxing time sitting on the veranda and even enjpyed a couple of glasses of wine provided by The Elms. The breakfast was very good with excellent fresh baked biscuits and blueberry muffins.It was a nice breakfast with an oppertunity to talk to another couple staying there. I would do it again.

Labor Day Get-Away

What a wonderful place to stay. Jerry was the epitome of a true southern gentleman. I loved our room, we stayed in the Carpenter Suite, the service was excellent, and I enjoyed sharing in the history of the home. I especially loved one of their resident cats, Maggie. She showed up with some love right when I was missing my own cats. I would definitely stay there again.

Fall in Natchez

Lovely accommodation within walking distance to downtown Natchez. Gracious and friendly host and staff. Attractive rooms, well furnished, satisfying hot breakfast, available assorted beverages throughout the day. Enjoyed sitting on the upstairs veranda looking out over spacious grounds.

Great stay!
