A warm welcome from Ron and Arlene made me feel right at home immediately. |The room was very comfortable and offered plenty of reading materials and historical depictions of the city of Natchez. The common area was stocked with candies, sodas and other delights to snack on while relaxing in the many public gathering spaces, porches and gardens. I would... More

Ron and Eleanor treated us like we were their only guests; they were so attentive and at the same time gave us plenty of privacy. The Rose Suite was beautiful and clean, and the grounds were well kept. We enjoyed our stay and cannot wait to come back.

Understated elegance in a lovely Victorian home on a street filled with beauty. Breakfast did not disappoint. Wine and cheese served in the afternoon. Friendly staff. Gorgeous gardens and inviting porches. Highly recommend.

My wife and I spent a night of our honeymoon at the Devereaux Shields. The house and gardens are full of charm. We love well-preserved period furniture, and this house didn't disappoint.

We arrived early afternoon and were welcomed with a glass of wine from the very friendly owner. We asked for advice where to visit and eat and recommendation was helpful. House is beautiful and rooms just lovely. Breakfast was round a large communal table & we had a great time talking to the other guests.

We stayed at Devereaux Shields House - actually at their "cottage" a short ways down the street from the main house - in October 2014, and were awestruck by the beautiful furnishings and decor. It was like sleeping in a museum, with 5-star service. The breakfasts were especially delicious, and hosts Ron and Eleanor were warm and accommodating - they... More

This is a great bed and breakfast: the hosts are welcoming and helpful, the room was extremely spacious and comfortable, and the homemade quiche, cheese grits, ham and BEST biscuits in the south were delightful. We stayed in Clara's cottage ca. 1897. Our dog was also welcomed here.
