the country inn and suites has a great location on the mississippi river in the heart of downtown natchez. the country inn & suites offers all of the amenities that you would expect from this moderately priced chain. good value, good location.
New, Great beds, Looks over the Mississippi river and Natchez across the river, Provides breakfast as well.
Would stay there again as we could explore area from there.
Views great fo the river. Can walk safely along paved pathways. The travel centre is just over the bridge in Mississipi. They have tours of historic homes, civil war cemetary which is moving and beautiful. The cememtary in Natchez is 1 of the mosy amazing and beautiful I have so far seen.
My husband and I planned a motorcycle trip to Natchez with a couple of friends. We stayed at a wonderful Bed and Breakfast establishment called "The Briars". We ate at a local steak house (Abe's) and had a wonderful meal. When we returned to The Briars we were greeted by the manager who instructed us to make ourselves at home and feel free to enjoy the historic materials and furnishings of the inn. We did just that, sat on the upper screened porch, made a fresh pot of coffee and chatted about our ride. We walked around the main house ( which is three levels) We were in awe of the many historical items on display.
The first night, both couples stayed in the main house. Our rooms were huge, with a fireplace, a wonderful view of the grounds, and a huge living room. The following night we swapped rooms, our friends stayed in the carriage house, we stayed in one of the single rooms on the hill.
We ate breakfast at the inn's restaurant, delicious homemade jams and jellies, fresh buttermilk biscuits, eggs, sausage, bacon, and grits. The restaurant was a true reflection of southern hospitality. The decor was elegant and although we did not have dinner at the restaurant we spoke about how romantic the atmosphere would be at night as the restaurant overlooks the river.
We returned to our rooms then walked the property enjoying all it had to offer. We sat on the massive porch in the rocking chairs and were given freshly popped popcorn by the manager to enjoy, we relaxed a bit enjoying the breeze and talking about our plans for the day. We then took a bike ride into Missouri just over the bridge in Natchez and enjoyed a day of gambling on a casino on the water, then back to Natchez to tour the downtown historic district. We had a seafood dinner at a local restaurant in the downtown historic area and back to the inn for more relaxation.
Biker friendly (Forbes and John Belushi have driven their bikes there and stayed at the Inn.)Historical establishment. Properrty and home where Jefferson Davis married Varina Howell in 1845. Circa 1814-1818. Antique furnishings, honor bar and coffee counter, free roam of the grounds and main house. Gift shop, restaurant, pool, tennis courts, and minature train village on premises. Sweedish massage in room, gift baskets available of flowers, cheeses, champagne etc upon request. There is also a walkway up to the cliff area of the property that overlooks the Mississippi River which is beautful in the fall of the year.
Garden areas are really nice. One special spot in the gardens is a small pet cemetary where the current owners dogs are buried. The owners have their personal home on the property which is a treat to see in itself. Modern and private.
The Under the Hill Saloon's Mark Twain Guest House was easily the highlight of our trip to Natchez, MS. The guest house is three rooms that share a large bathroom over the saloon. Take heart to the warning on the webpage and DO NOT stay there if you MUST have complete silence before two in the morning... it's not gonna happen.
If you want to have FUN while you're in Natchez, though, STAY HERE!!!! The staff is super friendly and so are the locals (the majority of the people in the bar are locals). The people, especially the bartender, J.D., or Mr. Miagi (as he likes to be called) are full of life and love to share their stories and entertain. There was never a dull moment here. We felt incredibly comfortable and welcome. We even got a full tour and quite a few history lessons.
The first night we were there, we stayed in Room 2: the bed is comfortable and very large, it's right across from the bathroom, and very easy to get to from the Saloon (right on up the stairs, no driving to a hotel!!!!). The second night, we stayed in Room 1, the largest room. This room has an amazing view and a fantastic canopy bed.
I would definitely reccomend the Under the Hill Saloon/Mark Twain Guest House to anyone who wants to go to Natchez to have FUN, but not to anyone who is stuffy, very reserved, or desiring peace and quiet. We will be talking about this trip for years to come and plan on visiting again very soon.
Directly on the Mississippi River
Full of history
last but not least, Mr. Miagi, the best bartender ever
After exploring parts of the Natchez Trace Parkway and Emerald Mound, we headed over to Natchez State Park where we'd reside for the next two evenings. We chose the "Old Campground" as the "New Campground" was full of RV's and too pristine for our rustic tastes. Found a nice site with no neighbours, set up our tents, and settled in to a nice night under the stars.
Natchez State Park is Located 10 miles north of Natchez city limits on Hwy 61, this 3400-acre park offers hiking and biking, ten modern cabins for rent, public pavillion, campgrounds with 50 improved sites for RVs, primitive areas for tents and a 230-acre lake where the two top state record bass have been taken. Open year round.
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.
I stayed at this old home that is a wonderful Bnb, The Burn. The service was great and breakfast fun.
