Stay at Elms in Natchez, MS - 9/7

5 on September 17, 2016

My husband, daughter and I stayed at the Elms while on a brief trip to Natchez. Our stay was very nice. The rooms were furnished with many beautiful antiques, the bathroom was new and very large, great shower! The price was very reasonable especially considering the size of our suite which included a separate room for my daughter. The bedroom had door that went directly out to a beautiful porch. Breakfast in the morning was excellent. Best grits I ever had.

Pretty and cosy place

We spent a wonderful night in The Elms, in a huge and historical room. Esther greeted us very kindly. I wish we could see her again in the morning before we left this very nice house. The dining score is very low because there is not any onsite dining.

Terrific place to stay

We only stayed one night but it was great. We were in the Drake room and had our own access to the balcony. The room was spacious and very comfortable. Esther thought of everything. We had toiletries provided and beverages when we first arrived. Terrific location. Walk to everything. And parking space is provided. Delicious breakfast. Don't hesitate to stay here.

Elms Experience

I also own an antebellum home so my expectations were a little lower than most, but I was actually impressed with the accommodations and the friendliness of the staff. I hope to be able to stay there again.

Great place!
