While in Biloxi we drove down along the coast. There was nothing but wide open beaches along the Gulf for miles and miles. Across the road there was nothing but residential lots for sale where once there were homes. Occasionally there were beautiful homes on stilts three stories high that had recently been rebuilt. I can't imagine what the insurance costs are. We stopped in Bay St. Louis for lunch and had really great fresh fish. The night before we ...

DAY 32 - VICKSBURG

Memorial Day today and we heard there was a parade on downtown so off we went. We thought with the history attached to this town it would have been really good - wrong - there was one group of flag bearers, a group of kids from the local baseball team and a couple of Vietnam Vets on their bikes, the police and fire departments rounded the parade off - very ...

... in Vicksburg - an historic town in Mississippi - playing a major role in the Civil War of 1863 - the bloody battle ended with 17,000 soldiers dying and they are honoured in the Vicksburg National Military Park. The park commemorates the campaign and defence of Vicksburg in 1863 and includes over 1340 monuments, markers and plaques. All very well done ...

Vicksburg National Park thenTuscaloosa, AL

Vicksburg National Park is an extensive memorial for Civil War. Thanks Bob Osterberg for recommending we stop in Vicksburg, MS. Tom was totally enthralled for the 16 mile drive while I got bored after 1 hour until we saw the Cairo ironclad ship that was hit with cannons and sunk around 1863. All crew members were saved. The ship was found around mid 59-60's and restored over 20 years. By far the largest jigsaw puzzle ...

... and his troops had been trying to bypass Vicksburg via a canal and various other options to negate the significance of Vicksburg. Vicksburg sits above the Mississippi and controls any traffic due to its imposing position. Grant brought his army down to join Sherman and took overall control with 3 commandeers, one of which was Sherman. They crossed the Mississippi, South of Vicksburg and fought various battles on their way to Vicksburg, including, Port ...

    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.

    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!

    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.
