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!


Felt so at home

My daughter and I stayed here during Fall Pilgrimage and so enjoyed this home. Ester was so warm and friendly, made us feel so at home. Had the whole house to ourselves. Breakfast was fantastic !!! Also was so kind to have a birthday gift for my daughter on her birthday trip. THANKS !!!!!


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.


Old South Charm and Elegance

The Elms was so much more than expected. The host met us upon arrival, showed us around the house, took us to our rooms and asked if we had any questions, was most accommodating.. Then we were left to make ourselves comfortable and saw no one until breakfast the next day. This made us feel as if we were not a guest, but that The Elms was home! Coffee, tea, ice, soda service was all set up when we arrived so that we could have refreshment any time that we wished. We loved it and on next trip to Natchez - it will definitely be The Elms. ( It is within walking distance to shops and restaurants, a real plus!)


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.

Amazing B&B

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 and amazing bed linens 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 (champagne and strawberries, dinner reservations, decadent desserts, and beautiful flowers). Esther's recommendations for places to enjoy while visiting Natchez were superb and the location is close to everything. Thanks so much for an amazing weekend! We will definitely be returning.


Beautiful house,great location

4.6 on June 19, 2017

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.


The Elms

We just concluded a wonderful 2 night stay at The Elms in Natchez. Our accommodations were spacious and comfortable. The bathroom was large and very well appointed. Much appreciated were the nice bath towels and toiletries. Our room had a large flat screen tv with Direct TV service which made viewing simple and enjoyable. The large porch outside of our room was the perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine and a quiet evening. Breakfast was outstanding and was served in a nice dining room family style, which was welcome relief from the breakfast buffet food troughs at many places. The eggs were farm fresh and everything from the fruit to the pancakes was well prepared. This property is in a desirable downtown location and close to most everything that Natchez has to offer. The property owners are knowledgeable of the area, friendly, provide excellent service. More importantly they were respectful of our privacy but were always available to help. We look forward to returning.
