Home away from home

Each time we stay at The Sweet Cane Inn we feel right at home. John and Kathy are doing a great job! Our favorite things to do when we visit include sitting on the front porch drinking coffee and playing a game of checkers or reading a book downstairs in the evening. But we all know that the best part is John’s breakfast crepes!


Welcoming and charming B &B

5 on August 17, 2017

Anniversary Weekend getaway and the owners John and Kathy and Mgr Kimberly where so hospitable. It was raining when we arrived and John helped us unload then helped us pack our ucases in the house and even offered to take them to our room. We arrived about 8:30 pm on Friday night he gave us a quick explanation and explain how the B & B operates and left use to enjoy our stay and the wine and cookies that are out every evening around 4pm. Kimberly called us on our way in make sure we were coming and how to enter the home and our room and set up breakfast time that was good for us each morning. Kimberly also make sure the menu was to our liking and made adjustments to accommodate my special diet. Very customer oriented! Coming back here again and telling family and friends!

We'll be Back!

This was my boyfriend and I's first ever B&B experience and it was perfect. We arrived with very clear instructions from the innkeeper about our room and key. There were fresh baked cookies (still warm) in the lobby and wine. Our room was perfect and the bathroom was modern with a lovely large bathtub. We enjoyed some win on the porch, walking around town and then had dinner at Magileaux's. No complaints anywhere. We learned the history of the house from the owner over a delicious breakfast. Can't say enough about this place. We'll definitely be back!

I just can't bring myself to spell it Natchitoches when it's pronounced so differently. Excellent host. Fantastic breakfast. Wonderful room. Beautiful common areas. And super convenient to downtown Nakatosh. Would surely recommend and will be returning.
