The Elms is Excellent

4.8 on October 13, 2017

Our stay at The Elms was every bit as good as we had hoped - even better actually. Our room was comfortably furnished in period-correct (and probably original) furnishings, beautifully accented, with modern conveniences wherever possible. The bed was very comfortable, the air conditioning silent and efficient, and Wi-Fi & TV worked well. Esther's talent is evident both in the house and in the kitchen, as the food is excellent!


Weekend getaway

4.4 on July 09, 2017

My husband and I visited Natchez for a friend's wedding and we chose to stay at The Elms. It was a lovely property with a big spacious room and bathroom that we thoroughly enjoyed. The room exited onto a spacious second floor balcony overlooking the beautiful live oak trees dripping with spanish moss. Our only complaint was the bed we slept in was clean and attractive but definitely not comfortable. Our breakfasts, however, were delicious! We enjoyed sitting around the large well-appointed dining room table and sharing a big southern style breakfast with 2 other house guests. We also enjoyed looking at the beautiful antiquities in the home and the constant availability of coffee, tea and wine. The location of The Elms was perfect. I was able to stroll around the lovely neighborhoods and even down to the Mississippi River. Overall, I would recommend the Elms to anyone who wants an authentic Natchez experience.


Southern Charm

We loved staying at the elms. From the moment Esther and Lucy greeted us, we felt at home. Our room and bath were amazing. We loved the updated amenities, as well as the charming original features of the home. From the bathrobes to the bubble bath, every detail was carefully chosen with comfort in mind. We enjoyed the addition of the romance package and everything it entailed. Esther's recommendations for places to enjoy while visiting Natchez were superb. Thanks so much for an amazing weekend! We will definitely be returning.

This is an amazing property. We had a very large room which was beautifully decorated. Tea, coffee, wine, beer and other beverages were readily available. We were made to feel very welcome. We enjoyed a fantastic evening meal at the Magnolia Grill, where great food was accompanied by fantastic views of the sunset over the Mississippi.


Wonderful Experience

The breakfast was amazing!


Fantastic mother and daughter experience!

This was a first for my daughter and I staying at at a bed and breakfast! We had a great time! Kathy was absolutely a wonderful hostess at breakfast and also did a great job preparing it! She also gave us advice on where to eat lunch. Any questions we had they were answered. The house and grounds are beautiful. The bed was one of the most comfortable I have ever slept in. We are planning our next trip back there.


Excellent stay in Natchez

4.8 on March 29, 2017

My wife and I very much enjoyed the night here. The home was built in 1804 and is beautiful. We very much enjoyed the complimentary beer and wine upon arrival and the breakfast was outstanding.


2nd time was also a charm!

5 on March 22, 2017

We visited overnight in October 2016 and were impressed, so we decided to come back with friends. 8 of us stayed for 4 nights and had a lovely time. Charming hostess Esther and terrific cook Kathy made sure everything was great. And nobody EVER skipped breakfast!


Best Value in Natchez

This is our second time staying at this B&B. It's a great location and the rooms are very comfortable and quiet. Kathy makes the best scrambled eggs and blueberry muffins in the world! The owners, Mark & Esther are very personable and helpful. We highly recommend this B&B if you are looking for a place that feels like home when traveling.
