First time B&B stay

5 on April 18, 2016

We had never done a B&B before and thought we would give it a try. We very much enjoyed the grounds and our room was great.... but then I don't normally sleep in a 4-poster bed so am easily impressed The other guests were very pleasant and the breakfast was excellent. We will be doing other B&B's in the future do to the great experience here.

First time in Natchez

My husband and I stayed at The Burn during our first visit to Natchez. The house is beautiful and the room we stayed in (Douglas Room) was very clean. The bed was SO comfortable. Nell was very nice and welcoming. She gave a thorough tour of the house and even gave us a map of downtown with recommendations of where to shop and eat. We chose The Burn because it was set back from the road and looked more secluded than some of the other B&B's. The room we stayed in was in a building adjacent to the house. The house sits on a beautiful two acre garden, all that remains from the original 100 acre homestead.

Highlight of two month vacation. A must stay!

Nell is a wonderful hostess. She is knowledgable and helpful. She is perhaps the best hostess we have ebcountered on our vacation. All other staff was friendly too. Our room (Lucy) was beautiful and beds comfortable. The pool towels in bathroom nice. Pool was beautiful and refreshing. Breakfast was excellent. Cookies and music each evening in the parlor was an excellent touch. A must stay in Natchez.

We like very much the house and the beautiful pool, even with few chairs but nobody use it during our stay. However the breakfast was below the standard in the B&B in the USA, very good but very light, with no yogurt, no bread, jam served like in Holiday inn

Great place

Just spent a week at the wonderful Burn. My girlfriend and I always take a summer road trip and chose Natchez for this summer. I decided to include my 13 year old granddaughter and her best friend. We couldn't ask for a better place to stay! Nell was a gracious and accommodating hostess. The room was great (Lucy), the pool refreshing and the food delicious. Thanks for making us feel at home!!!

truly a trip treasured in our memory bank

Lucky us to experience "The Burn" as our very first Bed & Breakfast visit. Nell welcomed us and we knew we were where we needed to be. The room, the tour, the breakfast and the gracious Nell gave us much to share with others. We will be back and we will bring company with us.

A True Step Into the Elegant Antebellum South

Southern living at its finest. Nothing compares to The Burn Experience! A true class act: beautifully kept grounds, pristine house, wonderful service, and tasty southern cooking. Will return in the future without a doubt!

A beautiful historic bed and breakfast

Stayed here during Spring pilgrimage. I had read the book about the house and enjoyed the tour and the actual photos of the original owners in the home. The staff was very attentive and helpful. The gardens are beautiful in the Spring. The other guests were very friendly. The only comment is that parking is a little limited especially during pilgrimage when the house is on tour. Is a good location as it is right in town. Would return there.

A welcome as though we lived there

Nell received us and very graciously accommodated our needs, caused us to feel at home & was very knowledgeable about the property & the history of the house. The grounds are beautiful.

A wonderful thanksgiving
