French Camp Bed & Breakfast has accommodations in the main house, as well as a couple of cabins. We reserved a couple of rooms and the cabin for our bike tour last year, and what a perfect end to a long day of bicycling! The cabin is a bit rustic (don't expect anything but country decor), but it was perfect for what we needed. There was a bit of a miscommunication regarding reservations (they double booked us), and we had to add a couple more people to the cabin to accommodate everyone (alas, I had to sleep on an air mattress on the floor since I was the coordinator), but I didn't mind because my share ended up being only $20.
This was a clean, homey place (if you are high-maintenance, don't bother coming here), but what was absolutely amazing was the breakfast part of the bed & breakfast. Arguably the best Southern breakfast you will ever eat: homemade jams and jellies; homemade bread, biscuits, and pancakes; bacon, sausage, grits. I can't even remember everything. Unbelievably delicious. The breakfast alone was worth the price.
French Camp is the location of an Presyterian academy for troubled youth (I didn't see any school children while I was there, however), and they request that you don't drink alcoholic beverages. A few of my friends didn't get the memo on that and were drinking on the porch, but the owners were very nice and simply requested that they do their drinking inside, out of sight.
On the December evening that I camped at Turkey Fork in Desoto National Forest there was only one other campsite in use besides my own. I had a wonderful view through the woods to Turkey Fork Lake. It was a very cool and dark moonless night. I walked down to the lakeside and looked up to see more stars than most city folk know exist. The Milky Way was scattered like fairy dust against a black velvet sky. Fish were jumping in the lake, and a Beaver swam in wide circles, occasionally slapping his broad tail against the mirror-like surface. Starlight could be seen reflecting in the ripples the beaver made. I missed Karen so much I called her on the cell phone and shared the magic of the moment with her.
There are 20 campsites at Turkey Fork with camping pads, picnic table, grills, and electric and water hookups. There are also modern bathrooms with flush toilets and hot showers. The campground, operated by the U.S. Forest Service, is open year round; camping fee is $13.00 per night.
As the Parkway is not finished yet around the Jackson area we had to leave it and drive through Jackson. Looking for a place to sleep here we finally arrived in Clinton, very close to entering the Parkway again.
So we decided to get a room at the Holiday Inn Express.
If you have your laptop with you, all rooms have free high speed internet.
Restored to its original condition, this historically registered 1830 Greek revival home has been turned into a Bed and Breakfast.
The home is decorated with beautiful period antiques. The rooms have private baths and a southern breakfast is provided.
You can also take a tour through the home but by appointment only.
This is one of the many lovely B&B's. They advertise to serve a full southern breakfast. Good location close to the Under the Hill area, restaurants and historic churches and homes.
We arrived into Natchez early in the evening and just chose this hotel out of the book mainly for the location of being close to the Historic District and also the Grand Village Indians. The hotel is still undergoing renovations in some of its rooms which are fairly basic but comfortable enough. They offered a complimentary breakfast of cereal, fruit salad (tinned), bagels, toast and mini muffins.
we stayed a few fun-filled nights at a tunica casino-resort called 'Sam's Town'...
since my wife is a member, the room was 'free'... my wife spends time at the casino game tables, so she gets free cigarettes, free hotel restaurant vouchers, free room, etc...
Gold Strike is the best! Its the biggest casino, and so nice. The lobby looks high class and the price is competitive with the other casinos. When I went, the prices during the week can go as low as 30 dollars a night. They have McDonald's, a deli, donuts, and two more fancy resteraunts. They have a spa, a pool, and a workout room. The rooms are nice, they are simple nothing fancy but just as good as most hotels. Oh get a room up high if you can the view is nice!
In august i was paying about 30-40 dollars a night
the weekend was 60-80
A good, but quite expensive accomodation would be the Hilton in Jackson, by Northpark Mall. It has numerous restuarants and shopping centers nearby, and airport shuttle service.
There's a casino here! :) Actually, the accomodations are very nice too.. the room was quite comfortable, and the view would have been great too had the Gulf not been fogged over. Also, food was pretty good at the sit-down restaurant here. I had a po' boy sandwich, which I'd never had, but apparently can be found all over the area.
There are virtually TONS of hotels on the strip. And right across is the beach for miles and miles.
most range from average to upscale. Very full on Memorial day weekend.
there are TONS of upscale hotels.
It was a nice casino. Good price. I would have to say though that the potatoes they make for breakfast were awsome!!! I have never had anything like it before. It was kind of pricey for room service though.
the hotel was clean as was the casino.
