We will definitely return. It was a very warm and inviting atmosphere. We stayed there two days in each day was wonderful, breakfast was amazing and the service was outstanding. Our Innkeeper and cook complements the atmosphere. I don't know how she made the grits, but OMG! I wish she cooked for us the whole time. As long as she is there we will definitely come back. Mr Jeffery and Travona misses your engaging smile and wonderful breakfast's.

We had a wonderful time this weekend for a girl's weekend getaway for my BFF's birthday. The room and common areas were spotless. The breakfast was great! Fresh and tasty meals with large portions of delicious food. I can't help but notice how fresh the towels smelled. The fact that it's located on the Cane River is a plus and a beautiful setting for a memorable stay. Location is two blocks walking distance to the shops and entertainment. Stay here. You won't be sorry!

To die for!

My husband and I stayed twice last year and it was so homey and clean! The staff are amazing and the stuffed french toast is to die for! Can't say enough good things about this place

A New York Gem!

My mother and I stayed at Violet Hill B&B for one evening in late June. It was a last minute booking as we were meeting up with family for "R" day at West Point and there were no hotels in the area. What a wonderful surprise! Although a little bit of a drive (maybe 20-30 minutes from West Point) we were greated by a beautiful old home in immaculate condition and a well kept farm. We given free reign in the house and enjoyed a quiet, relaxing evening. My mother and I have been to several B&Bs and this one is truely lovely. Very clean, very comfortable and breakfast was delicious- ask for the french toast! We plan on staying here whenever we go to West Point in the future and highly recommend it to all!

Loved Violet Hill!!!

Last Christmas, our children gifted us with a 3-night stay in a Natchitoches bed and breakfast. We decided we better use it before it expired. There were about four B&B's we could choose from. We chose Violet Hill and I'm so glad we did. We had a wonderful time! Todd, one of the owners, was so friendly and accommodating…not to mention his cooking skills! Every morning we sat in the beautiful dining room and had a delicious breakfast prepared by Todd (Todd, I'm still waiting for my Peach Crisp recipe). Violet Hill sits on the Cane River and the back porch and deck overlooking the river is just fabulous. It was especially nice because there were Christmas lights and decorations all down the river. The historic district (in walking distance) was beautifully decorated with lights and Christmas music played while we walked and shopped in all the unique shops along Front St. We also enjoyed visiting the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame. All I can say is that I had a wonderful time and would definitely go back and stay at Violet Hill. H. Burns ("Fran")

My wife and I spent her birthday weekend here and visiting Natchitoches. Great, Great place to stay!!! Rooms were VERY cool, John the owner, proprietor and chef was really welcoming and charming. There was nothing we wanted for. He managed to cater to our every need and yet was nearly invisible the whole time. We had the run of the place and were able to enjoy our weekend on our own schedule. I would heartily recommend this place to anyone!!!

My Sons Wedding and Family Reunion Weekend

5 on April 03, 2014

My son was getting married March 22, 2014. My Husband,myself and daughter had stayed at the Violet Hill prior and instantly fell in love with the home and outstanding service. So when my son proposed, we booked the entire house for family and friends flying/driving in from out of state, so we would have a wonderful place to stay the entire weekend March21-March24th. Every one had their own beautiful private room and bath to get ready for the wedding and then an absolutely wonderful place for us to gather before and after the wedding. I have to say, that I have stayed at many Bed and Breakfasts, but the Violet Hill is by far my favorite. We were treated like family, every thing our hearts desired was provided, including wonderful breakfasts served at a time we chose to make sure every one was up and ready (in our jammies) for breakfast. John (Innkeeper/Owner) Served us the most delicious breakfasts and we were able to pick which kind of breakfast we wanted. He accommodated our every need, any thing we did need, just a call and he was there lickedey split! The river view from the back veranda and covered boat dock is amazing. We had a wonderful Sunday morning family get together, playing guitar and singing, with many little cousins enjoying the back yard. It was perfectly wonderful. The rooms are outstanding, clean and spacious, with comfy beds and pillows. A room for everyone's needs. Our visitors from out of town were so impressed with the home and service provided by the housekeepers and John. It couldn't have been more perfect. I want to thank John and his staff personally for making my sons wedding so wonderful before and after.Thank you John for making this special occasion even better. have a family reunion, The Violet Hill will be the spot!!!! I can go on and on, but I wont. Unbelievable John, Thank you so much for your never ending hospitality and making every one feel as if they were home.

Violet HIlls B&B, my favorite!!

5 on November 05, 2013

Just returned home from a another visit to Violet Hill B&B & I am convinced that this is by far my favorite B&B! Charles, my friend, you are second to none - you absolutely make the stay the most pleasant experience! The rooms are neat & clean, but the real treat is the fantastic breakfast - served to guests by the best host ever. Charles is full of information regarding the history of the town & places of interest. You will not be disappointed when staying at Violet Hill B&B - it's awesome! Kelly
