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.

Our stay at the Sweet Cane Inn was our first stay at a bed and breakfast. We arrived in Natchitoches looking for a relaxing 2 night stay starting Super Bowl Sunday. To our surprise, we were the only guests staying at the Inn. We were blown away by the hospitality, service and comfort at the Sweet Cane Inn. The Inn is located in close proximity to historic downtown Natchitoches and is an easy walk to the sites, stores, restaurants, museums and pubs. Being Super Bowl Sunday, John even setup a projection TV to enjoy the game on a big screen along with popcorn, cookies and wine. Breakfast was great and the rooms comfortable. When we come back to Natchitoches, we will definitely stay at the Sweet Cane Inn!

Our weekend stay was absolutely perfect! We wouldn't have changed one thing. It was the most relaxing weekend we have ever spent ! John and Kathy were the most gracious hosts! On a side note, Maglieaux's on the Cane restaurant is within walking distance of Sweet Cane Inn and has great service, delicious cuisine, and reasonable prices. We have found OUR weekend getaway and we WILL be back soon! Emmett and Teri

Wonderful experience, we truly enjoyed our stay at the Sweet Cane Inn! The rooms were very comfortable and quiet, yet they were decorated with beautiful furnishings and featured modern conveniences. To top it off, everyday we stayed, the breakfasts were delicious. We also enjoyed a complimentary glass of wine on the porch in the evening.

We arrived late in the evening but Kathy had left a key for us and encouraged us to call if we needed anything. The Inn is lovely -- the rooms were clean and cosy and the beds were extremely comfortable. The full breakfast (French Toast, scrambled eggs and sausage) was delicious! The hospitality prior to (reservations) and during our stay was exceptional and I loved the stories of the original owners as well as the process of restoration of the inn. The inn is well-located -- a short walk to the historic section of town. I hope we will have an opportunity to return!

We have only stayed in two other B & B's, but The Sweet Cane Inn surpassed our every expectation in all aspects. The hosts were gracious and personable, the room was immaculate and the breakfast was divine! We awakened each morning to the smell of coffee, pancakes and sausage.Then at 4 pm upon returning from enjoying the beauty of Natchitoches, we were greeted with wine, coffee and the best chocolate chips cookies we have ever tasted! Our bedding was perfect, the decor of the room was pleasing and the bathroom had every convenience at our fingertips. We loved hearing the history of the home and the hosts entertained us with their own story of acquiring this treasure. But I think the best testimony came from a guest who has stayed at The Sweet Cane Inn 17 times in a little over three years!! She has become a part of the family and my husband and I know when we return for the Festival of Lights we will be greeted by John and Kathy as family too. We had a wonderful stay there and we made many happy memories. Looking forward to returning in December!
