“Souther hospitality at its finest”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2011

The breakfasts were to die for. We were there for 3 mornings and I had 3 of the best breakfasts I have ever had. True Southern cooking and a gorgeous presentation. Our room was beautiful with a GIANT 4-poster bed, a private entrance and a bright and cheery beautiful bathroom. Debby was the best hostess, she made us feel welcome and and was the picture of Southern hospitality.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 November 2010

This was our first time to Natchitoches and our first time staying in a B&B. The B&B is in a perfect area and walking distance to downtown. We parked and never moved our car until we left. We walked several times a day from the B&B to downtown and it was never an issue. The room was amazing. We stayed in The Delmonico Room and it was perfect for us. The room was intimate and very private. We had french doors that led to the gardens and our own private entrance. The house was fully decorated for Christmas and so cozy!! We loved the decorations. The staff was friendly as well. Breakfast was amazing every morning. We had a two course meal each day with orange juice and coffee. We love the town of Natchitoches. Friendly people and an excellent little town. :)

This home is located in the heart of the historic district. It is a Craftsman style bungalow that is in great shape and just beautiful. This b&b is located across from the home where Steel Magnolia's was filmed. We had the place to ourselves and it was just so easy. Our key was waiting and we didn't see another soul until the morning when our breakfast was cooked and served to us. Breakfast was good. We stayed in the St. Elmo room which has direct access to the beautiful gardens surrounding the home. There is a sitting room, and a bedroom with king size bed and two comfy chairs with an ottoman. The bathroom had double sinks, walk in shower and a comfy two person jacuzzi tub. The only complaint is that the pillows were not very comfy for me but my husband said they were fine for him. The bedroom was very cold too, but nothing a little cuddling in bed couldn't fix.
