A night in Vicksburg

5 on June 23, 2013

The Belle was a gorgeous southern mansion in pristine condition, a beautiful place. Loved meeting Dan and Mary who have fully embraced being B&B hosts. Brian Bourgeois


Elegantly Comfortable!

5 on May 01, 2013

We had a great visit here - it was one of the best we have visited! We stayed in the Josephine Room, very large and very comfortable. Mary was a great hostess and the breakfasts were wonderful! The trains did not affect us as we had the air-conditioning on so no windows were opened. We would definitely consider staying here again! Wendy and Rick Beaumont


Enjoyable Experience in Old South Style

5 on October 07, 2011

We enjoyed a wonderful visit at this B&B. Our innkeeper, Mary, is very personable and quite knowledgeable about Vicksburg and the surrounding area. This B&B is beautifully appointed and very comfortable with large rooms, high ceilings, and all the comforts you would expect in an Antebellum home. Breakfasts were outstanding and beautifully served on an elegant table. There is only one caveat - there is an occasional train that comes through nearby, however, we didn't find it a problem. We would definitely consider staying here again should we return to visit the area.

Great place to stay. A real step into the past, with great Southern hospitality from the perfect hosts


One of the "GREAT B&B's"

5 on August 09, 2011

My wife and I stayed at this GREAT B&B for three days and I can tell you we will be back!! We arrived about 7:30pm on are 1st day we had no problems checking and parking is gated I can tell you having stayed in many B&B's over the years this is a great benefit. Mary showed us around the house and them to are room. The room and the house was one of the most well keep and true to the period that I have been in. The breakfast was to die for we always had hot coffee every morning, fresh fruit, eggs, fresh biscuits with gravy or jam and many other items to tease the palate. I only wished that we lived closer so we could stay at this GREAT B&B MORE OFTEN.


Couldn't ask for more of a B&B

Amazing hospitality, delicious food and outstanding accomodation. We loved our one night stay and only wished we could have stayed longer. The room was beautifully appointed (as was the whole house) and the balcony in particular had a lovely view down to the Mississippi and was so nice to sit out there with a coffee first thing. Would definitely recommend.


Truly a Belle!

A magnificently and stately B & B. The room was spacious and elegant. Mary's breakfasts were extraordinary and served in grand style. A thoroughly enjoyable and pleasant stay.


Brisk Wintery Day

4.6 on December 08, 2010

And so it was when my wife and I meandered our way thru the town of Vicksburg, that we first caught a glimpse of the Belle. No snow on the ground, mind you, but that was the only thing that otherwise would have made the Belle picture-postcard perfect! The overlarge rooms and period furniture reminded us of years gone by and a time when the day wasn't rushed to the max. Thank you Mary and Dan for a wonderful stay, we look forward to the opportunity to do it again. Business may have led us to Vicksburg, but it was the Hand of God that sent us your way!


Priceless Trip in Time!

4.2 on November 29, 2010

If you are looking for a laid back, historic stay, this is the place for you! This beautiful, post-bellum B&B is in a perfect location and has exceptional service. It also has it's own gift shop with one of kind items to remember your stay. Our family had a lovely time and would highly recommend it!


A Step Back In History

5 on November 29, 2010

This home is a lovely place to stay but the owner/hostess is what made our overnight stay so enjoyable. She made us feel like family. We are teachers so we gave this wonderful place an A+.
