Southern Charm

Our weekend stay at the Judge Porter House was very pleasant. The home was charming and the staff was personable. The room was very clean, and breakfast was delicious. It was located conveniently to the historic district.

Nice Detached Guest House

The detached 2 story Guest House was most private. It had an upstairs loft bedroom readily accessed with a spiral staircase. There was a gas fire place in the sitting area. Full kitchen was nice as well. For people who are trying to get away from people to relax, this was the place to stay.

My fiancee and I stayed here August 11, 2012 and had a wonderful time. Since then we split up for a while. Our stay January 26, 2013 was our first time together since our separation. Thanks again for a wonderful memorable stay. We look forward to another trip

La bella giornato

The Judge Porter House is lovely and all that I was told it would be and more. My husband and I came with friends for a pre-Christmas weekend and wished we could have stayed longer. The house is located close to the river so we were able to walk to all of the holiday festivities, shops and restaurants. Best of all, it was easy to get back to our room after a full day on the town. Our room, The Judge Porter Room, was spacious, clean and well appointed with beautiful period furnishings and all the amenities we could want, as was our bathroom. I loved our canopied bed...curling up in the plush bedding and tons of cushy pillows...nice way to end the day. Although we didn't want to leave our comfy bed, we didn't want to miss Charles' breakfast either. This is a full breakfast that would make Paula Deen proud. Charles, our host, was amazing and made us feel so welcome. He told us that they have a lot of repeat guests...in fact, our friends have been going there every year for the past 17 years... now I know why. This was our first visit, but it won't be our last.

Our stay was what we would call. "The True Meaning of Southern Hospitatlity"

Truly a relaxing weekend, people were as friendly as it gets, we would not hesitate to return. Very peaceful, laid back community.

Amazing Getaway!

This was our second time staying at a B&B in Natchitoches, LA. The first wasn't so pleasant, but this one made up for it and helped provide a lifetime of memories! Upon checking in late, we found that EVERYTHING was in order and beautifully set up. We paid extra to include some wine, chocolate covered strawberries, and roses. When entering the room, our breathe was taken away because it was so much more then we expected! The guest service manager also did an amazing job at helping me to find the right place to stay for what I was iterested in and even suggested and helped to communicate the special package I was wanting added! The Judge Porter House really helped make a special event more memorable. The in keeper and guest service manager were wonderful to deal with!

Best ezperience ever!

This was the second time we ever stayed at a B&B and it was the best experience ever. I thought I preferred staying at hotels but the Judge Porter House was like being at home only much better. The food was excellent, the staff was very friendly and helpful and the house is beautiful. Loved every minute of our stay except Sunday morning when we had to leave. We hope to come back very soon.

Great srart to our 2nd Honeymoon

5 on August 13, 2012

My wife and I married 10 years ago - we have 5 children between us, so the honeymoon was one night in the Maple Manor B&B in Dallas. We decided to travel to Florida for our first vacation by ourselves, but also take our time getting there, We picked Natchitoches as our first stop on our trip. The Judge Porter House had great online reviews and lived up to and exceeded our expectations. The Romance package of chilled champagne and chocolate dipped strawberries with rose petals strewn on the bed was waiting when my wife opened the door. She didn't know about "the extra touch" I ordered and was overwhelmed by the surprise. The room was very comfortable and breakfast was amazing the next morning - plus our hostesses were extremely attentive and efficient with our total group of eight. It was a perfect way to start our wonderful private time together.
