We spent 4 nights in the first-floor Master Suite and had a wonderfully relaxing stay. We were greeted by Doug and Don, complete with mint juleps served in iced silver glasses, and homemade chocolate chip cookies... what a welcome! The Oak Hill Inn is beautiful, and filled with historic antiques from the area, and from Doug's relatives in the music business. His tour of the house was excellent, and we recommend you save an hour for the tour while here. The grounds are delightful, including manicured lawns & shrubs, statuary, and a serene pond & fountain with goldfish and flowering water lilies. And their cute cats were a pleasure to meet on the back patio if you needed a little cuddling. Finally, breakfast was a real experience, with both sweet and savory entrees, fresh fruit, freshly baked breads, and delicious coffee and juice. Each morning was a new gourmet experience. After breakfast, Doug and Don spent some time discussing the various sights and tastes of Natchez, which was a helpful addition to each day. We highly recommend touring the antebellum mansions of Natchez, coupled with an extended stay at the Oak Hill Inn, if you're ever in the deep South.

The best B & B than I ever visited. A pleasure to talk with the host in an excelente spanish language from Spain. My friend from Madrid was astonish to find that level of language in Natchez. The cocktails in the afternoon on the garden were impeccable! To finish the breakfast was in a word PERFECT.

Would truly recommend this place to anyone!!!

We loved it!! WE were greeted with chocolate choc. chip cookies and a Mint Julip( great) thanks Don. The room was fabulous! The breakfasts were fit for a King and Delicious. Doug gave us a tour of Oak Hill ( great history), and lots of info on Natchez. The outside is beautiful with a beautiful pond and goldfish. We enjoyed the library. We felt at home and could come and go as we pleased. If we ever get back to Natchez, we will stay at Oak Hill. Thanks so much Don and Doug. We loved It. Love, Brenda & Ray

Just finished my tour of the South with my sib. This Northerner was wowed by Oak Hill Inn for it's historic integrety, its hosts' hospitality and unparallelled knowledge both of their property's and Natchez's history, the fountain with goldfish AND turtles, the moss bedecked trees swaying in the breeze and 2 cats in the yard to boot! But really the breakfasts alone are worth the visit. Wow.

My cousin and I recently stayed 3 days at Oak Hill Inn in Natchez. It is absolutely beautiful and close to all major attractions. The inn is loaded with history and owner Doug is very accommodating. Gourmet breakfasts are out of this world. Please stay here if you are looking for a clean, quiet, relaxing place to call home during your visit. Doug is very knowledgeable about all local history and attractions. We will definitely stay at Oak Hill again. Rhonda & Kathy

We just left Oak Hill and I will tell you it was a wonderful experience, for sure we will go back. Doug met us outside, carried our luggage, served iced tea and cookies that were so good! Our room was very comfortable down to the sheets on the bed.The entire house was very clean and elegant. We spent a lot of time in the courtyard drinking his wonderful tea. The breakfast was out of this world, fresh fruit with a touch of mint, Creme Brulee French Toast with warm syrup, Homeade biscuits and blueberry muffins, sausage links, Creole Baked Eggs, fresh orange juice and coffee served on china with fresh cut flowers on the table it was very elegant, it was true royalty. The tour of the house is truly amazing. You will not be disappointed.

Do not miss this house! Our stay at Oak Hill Inn placed us in town, but out of the way of other mainstream tourists venues. It served as our base of operations for two days while we drove to larger tour houses. You can walk to many in-town tour sites from Oak Hill if you 'd like, however. (we drove since we had a twelve and five year old) Doug was most a most gracious host. He offered a unique perspective as an owner and curator. He flexed his schedule for us, made us feel comfortable, and, as advertised, served the best meal we had during our stay. I whole heartedly recommend Oak Hill Inn.

Combines genuine historic charm with elegant decor and beautiful antiques. Owners love their adopted city, and will steer you to the best places for food and things to do. Quiet residential setting, yet close to everything. Highly recommended.

Gorgeous does not do justice to Oak Hill. It's full of beautiful museum quality family heirlooms yet it's a comfortable home. Don't miss the house tour by proprietor Doug explaining the history of the furniture, paintings etc. Our suite had a beautiful bed with fabulous linens, cloud- like pillows and an elegant bathroom with crystal sconces. Morning coffee is available in the loggia early (love that!) overlooking the fountain and set on a table decorated with pansies and camelias from Oak Hill's garden. Breakfast is AMAZING- we stayed 5 nights and had a different wonderful breakfast each morning (no wonder- we learned that the owner had worked at Brennan's in New Orleans while attending Tulane Univ.): creme brulee french toast, Natchez pecan soufflee, eggs Benedict, fresh fruit served on period old Paris porcelain. Breakfast is served in the original 1835 dining room with a fire burning. Where else can you eat under an 1850 Irish Waterford crystal gasolier?Dinners can also be arranged in advance- we did that one night and it rivaled any of the best restaurants in New Orleans or San Francisco. The gardens are so pretty with Spanish moss dripping off the crepe myrtle trees. This gem is an award winning house and it shows. We were sorry to leave after a lovely stay, but it was back to reality.....

This B&B was highly recommended to us by family and the minute we arrived, we knew why. The grounds, lovely and so well-kept, include a fountain and brick patio. Our room on the first floor (Beatty Room) was elegant comfort and provided the privacy we like. The breakfast was delicious and featured local foods. The fresh flowers and vintage china, crystal, and silver provided a lovely setting. Doug, the proprietor, has immersed himself in the history of Natchez and provided a very knowledgeable tour of the home. He was able to answer all our questions about the area. He also recommended a wonderful place for dinner -- another antebellum site -- and made reservations for us. We so enjoyed our stay at this lovingly-restored home and appreciated Doug's service and special touches. We will return again and also recommend Oak Hill Inn to our family and friends.

CREME BRULEE FRENCH TOAST. Can you imagine how GOOD that is? Eggs Benedict -- the BEST. I'm already planning my 4th visit in 18 months. This is exactly what you are looking for in Natchez. A warm welcome with Oak Hill iced tea and home-made cookies. Doug, a charming and personable host, is well informed and well connected to assure that one is aware of all there is to do in Natchez. The house has a fabulous history and is beautifully appointed. The bedrooms are configured in such a way as to accommodate singles, couples, families and girlfriends' retreats. A glass of wine on the patio beside the fountain removes all the kinks of road travel. Don't miss this. From Karen in Houston.
