    Historical Traveler Reviews Cedar Grove Mansion Inn & Restaurant Vicksburg

    Historic Journey in Vicksburg

    from

    Dear TripAdvisor:

    We just finished a relaxing weekend vacation at Cedar Grove Mansion located in Vicksburg, Mississippi. Just a three hour ride from Louisiana and we were taken back in time to the beauty of the mansions that survived the war. Cedar Grove is located near the Mississippi River and has a wonderful, friendly staff to cater to your every needs. The Yazoo Suite where we stayed was decorated in beautiful period furnishings and was very spacious. We had a wonderful dinner at Andre's Restaurant located in the mansion and took a delightful tour of the mansion to learn of its past. Anyone who visits Cedar Grove will enjoy the beautiful grounds and delicious Mint Juleps. We hope to visit again soon.

    Be Very Careful!

    from

    Do your own research carefully for this hotel - although it is fair to say the management has changed since our stay in September last year, our experience was so awful as were many others at the time (all of which have now been removed) that these very recent glowing reviews within such a short space of time surprise me unless there has been some major investment in refurbishment. Perhaps the management would like to respond with what they have done to improve things such as the cottages across the road which were filthy, musty and smelly, the pool that could not possibly have been used and the surrounding area which was unkempt.

    This hotel does have potential but the transformation seems to have been extremely quick. We use Trip Advisor constantly when travelling and have very rarely been let down and only hope this is now a true reflection of this hotel.

    Cedar Grove was a very special experience. Everything was wonderful. My husband and I loved the gardens. We can't stop talking about the employees that work at Cedar Grove, they were very helpful with showing us to our room and helping with our luggage.

    Step back in time at Cedar Grove Mansion

    from

    We recently visited Cedsar Grove Mansion for my birthday. I can say without a doubt it was the most exceptional birthday I have ever had. Our suite was very elegant as was the atmosphere at Cedar Grove. However, it is not a stuffy atmosphere as most would expect. The staff at both the Inn and Andre's Restaurant was overly accommodating and the food was also excellent. We had access to the entire mansion and just acted as though we were home.

    Can't wait for our next visit and we can highly recommend this as a wonderful destination place.

    Romantic getaway

    from

    For our 19th anniversary, my wife and I decided to try a B&B a few hours away from our home. After years of spending anniversaries in big expensive hotels, resorts and cruises, we finally found just the right place!

    The setting takes you back to a simple yet elegant time away from the rush and hussle bussle of big cities. Our room was large yet cosy and the bed was very comfortable. The restaurant was very romantic and the wait staff's service was excellent. The menu had enough variety to dine there both nights and the quality was first class. Complimentary turn down service with Sherry and chocolate mints topped off the day!

    During the day, we were just a few blocks from the downtown area, full of quaint little shops, and coffee and lunch shops. We certainly would recommend Cedar Grove to our friends and plan on returning next year!

    Cedar Grove is the Greatest Place!

    from

    My recent vacation was to the south, and my favorite stop on the way was in Vicksburg, Mississippi at the Cedar Grove Mansion Inn. If you ever go there you'll see why. The staff was really friendly, the food was great, and the room was beautiful. It reminded me of Gone with the Wind, from the Mint Juleps in the lounge to the cutains in the formal dining room. Its amazing that they have so many things intact from so long ago. The tour of the house was really good. I will definantly go back!

    Cedar Grove is a treasure

    from

    Anyone who does not like this place should go stay at some expensive, sanitized, and soulless chain. For our second stay here, we slept in Grant's bed (yes, the blasted yankee) and were soothed by his in-room jacuzzi. This is a great ante bellum place. I know of no other place to stay that has a cannonball that was embedded in the living room wall during the war between the states. We viewed the Mississippi from the rooftop terrace and wandered the spacious grounds. A friendly cat ran across a wide expanse of lawn to accompany us on our stroll. Ihis is a fantastic place to unwind. It even has a pool. And, the friendly staff and great resturant make this an ideal stop. It might be a generational but we found the muted wail of a train in the night very comforting.

    Good, but not great

    from

    We had a very nice time on our three-day getaway weekend at Cedar Grove Inn & Mansion. I think it was partly because I had decided to make the best of whatever happened. This place is almost great. It is overwhelming to think about the tremendous amount of upkeep necessary to just keep it in good (not great) condition. It is, of course, very old and because of that there are things that will never be new or clean again. I think the people there do the best they can, but unless someone comes up with a couple million dollars the place won't ever be more than a two to three star. I will attempt to give both the positive and negative points. Most of the grounds were nice, but one evening we sat out on the gazebo with a mint julep (delicious) and noticed that the grass around the gazebo was over a foot tall and needed mowing & weeding, a dirty glass had been left behind, there was broken glass on the brick walk and the lovely nearby fountain was moldy and in desperate need of cleaning and painting. Anywhere you look you can come up with a list of similar projects that need attention. On a positive note, our bed was very comfortable and the linens were clean and the blanket looked new. The bathroom was a bit dingy, but the shower curtain was clean and the complimentary toiletries are from Casewell-Masey and smell wonderful. The swimming pool needs a good scraping and new paint. The tennis courts are in shambles and overgrown with weeds. They have not been maintained in years and could be fixed up to be quite nice. I cannot imagine anyone using either the pool or tennis courts in their current condition. The Southern breakfast was quite nice. The grits are yummy and the service is very friendly. All windows and outdoor furniture need a good cleaning. The curtains in our room had torn and tattered tie-backs. One was held together with a safety pin. I think some complimentary colored cording would look nicer than the original tie-backs. It is little things like that that would be a nice, clean and not very expensive fix. One evening we took a glass of wine and sat out on the roof-top that has a faint view of the Mississippi River. There were 4 or 5 air conditioning units creating so much noise we didn't enjoy much of a conversation. But the noise of the train that some have complained about didn't bother either of us. In fact we both thought it was sort of soothing. Different strokes for different folks, as they say. All in all, I would not recommend the Cedar Grove, but if you do go and have the right attitude and are with someone you love, your stay can be very nice - not great - but nice.

    "Fantastic"

    from

    My wife and I stayed in the Klein Suite with the 2 day annivarsary package. First of all I must say that the suite we were in was fantastic and in great shape. We were able to visit other suites in the Main House that were not in use and they all appeared in good condition. However, the Library Suite was in need of some work with a somewhat damp smell.

    The staff there was excellent. Very pleasant and helpful and left you wanting for nothing.

    It is an old home and there is definitely maintenance to be done, but one shouldn't stay at a place like this and expect a new hotel. The above average rating is for an Antebellum Home not a new hotel.

    If you go and have a specific room in mind, contact management for the current room conditions.

    Navigational errors are also easy to make in heavy rain when the road signs are hard to read. My biggest fear is localized flash flooding, especially across the highway. I better hope the roadway designers did their job when it comes to drainage.

    My body sure protests with humidity which it has been up till yesterday. Today it's raining on and off. It's a nuisance getting older hmm
    So this morning was just used for catching up on things. Paul likes to read news on the puter, so I found that the hotel had one just calling out for me to use it!

    Then after a bite to eat for lunch, we took a ride into the township. There are a number of museums, so we parked by one and had a look through this ...

    ... is perfect for defence. Unable to break through the defences, Grant ordered a siege. For 47 days nothing entered or left the town. They shelled it relentlessly, both from the land, and the river. After 47 days, the defenders, and the town surrendered.

    That meant that this battlefield that I'm about to explore, literally wraps around the whole town. So walking it was never on the cards. I enter the visitors centre and look at maps and other information that's provided ...

The museum a disappointment with a whole floor dedicated to the conspiracy theories surrounding the shooting of Martin Luther King ...
