What a wonderful experience! Although an older property, it was extremely clean. The close proximity to the historic downtown area was also nice; no need to find a place to park, just walk. But the best part was the Innkeeper Laverne. In my experience in staying at B&Bs, "the innkeeper makes the inn", and this was no different. What a...

Delightful stay at Violet Hill. Well appointed king room with large claw foot tub and a shower. Complimentary soft drinks, teas, water and coffee. Great view of the Cane River from the comfortable back porch. Housekeeper prepared good breakfast of fresh fruit, sausage and praline pancakes. Would highly recommend.

We had friends from Texas meet us in Natchitoches for some rest and relaxation. I fell in love with the style of Violet Hill! It's beautifully decorated. The back porch was a perfect place to sit and relax. What a view!!! Loved the location and it's walking distance from local eateries and shops. We were met with a fabulous breakfast...

Beautiful setting on the Cane river, wonderful breakfast's both mornings. Todd, Liz, and Cynthia took great care of us. Old home with the charm, quirks, and details of an old home. Beautifully furnished room with private bath. Walking distance to great food, bars, and shopping.

Great house. Great staff. Excellent breakfast. Loved the spacious back porch and how we could walk downtown for lunch/dinner or shopping. This would be a great place for a girls "get-a-way" weekend. Lots of history in this quaint little town. Can't wait to come back for a visit.

Met up with a group of friends here for a couple of days. What an amazing place to stay! The rooms are impeccably decorated, clean and comfortable. This particular house is well located with a few minute walk to the charming downtown area just down the street. The view of the Cane River Lake is incredible, both from the back...

I've stayed at the Violet Hill on six occasions. When I return it will be again at the Violet Hill. For people who have never stayed at a bed & breakfast, I'm sure their first experience at any may be their last. For people like myself, who ONLY stay at bed & breakfasts, the Violet Hill is a wonderful experience....

I will start with the positive. The breakfast was really awesome and the hostess in the morning was very gracious and kind! Wonderful conversations with the other guests. Definitely a wonderful morning experience. Now to the not so good. This B&B gave me the worse nights sleep I've had, maybe ever. Let's start with the price.... For 220 dollars a...

Violet Hill Bed & Breakfast is a beautifully restored old Victorian home less than a block from the heart of Natchitoches. Rooms are quite large, beautifully decorated and immaculately maintained. The en suite baths are up-to-date and spacious. A huge back porch runs the length of the house and is very comfortably furnished for lounging and relaxing. The view of...
