Historical Traveler Reviews Cedar Grove Mansion Inn & Restaurant Vicksburg
Historic Journey in Vicksburg
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!
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.
Getway from the kids
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
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.
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!
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
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
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.
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.

... a few days and thought it would be a good destination for us to explore now. The casino has an RV park so we stayed here for the weekend. Their main bar, the Bottleneck Blues Bar, has great entertainment and was having a Super Bowl party on Sunday. Friday night we enjoyed the music of Grady Champion and his band. He’s an international Blues winner and it was such a treat to listen to this type of Delta Blues.
Saturday we jumped in Jimmy and ...
... the bigger tent. It was freezing and wet so it would certainly not be fun.
We made it to Vicksburg by early afternoon but it was pouring with rain so it was rather difficult to do anything. We went for a drive around the area and ended up checking out the outlets (Don’t worry I didn’t buy anything) and grabbed something to eat at the Cracker barrel restaurant which of course serves ginormous meals.
The next morning we woke to ...
... we had steak! And of course we chose the restaurant carefully as it's desert night! We did pick the right restaurant indeed: - Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie Bourbon pecan pie, dark chocolate ganache, served with Amaretto whipped cream & caramel. Bluebell Homemade Vanilla ice cream - Anchuca Bonzo Cake House Specialty, Flourless chocolate cake, dark chocolate ganache, cheesecake, chocolate mousse, chocolate & caramel, Bluebell Homemade Vanilla ice ...
The elderly custodian must be a train enthusiast, as there are 2 neat model railway train displays which he took great delight in switching on to show us.
The next quest was to find coffee, and one of the 2 Casinos was the place we chose. There are 2 big casinos on the riverside, so this must be the local entertainment area!
I wonder where we'll have dinner?
Tomorrow we're off to Monticello in Arkansas.
... that is like a scone and is mostly eaten instead of bread). We didn't eat too much so the waiter saved the day by bring us each a piece of toast which we hastily spread with vegemite. It is so interesting to see what people eat for breakfast when you travel - that is probably the one meal where you really pine for familiar food. Nachez has a very impressive collection of antebellum houses - it was hard to choose which ones to visit but the fact that it ...
