Historical Traveler Reviews Historic Oak Hill Inn Natchez
This was a wonderful B & B experience. Oak Hill is a lovely place to stay. The location is perfect for walking to sites in Natchez's historical district. The owner, Doug, was most attentive and gave us very helpful suggestions on what to see and do. The service was excellent, the food delicious, and the outdoor setting was a real delight. The stay here and all the wonderful things to see in Natchez is a "memory maker".
Wish I could LIVE there
We had to go to Natchez for a wedding, and were at our wits end about where to stay. Luck for us, we happened upon Oak Hill. It was probably the most pleasant, elegant B&B I've ever been to. The hosts were so welcoming and accomodating (even when we were running very late for our arrival!) and made us feel right at home. And what a home it is - the antiques and furnishings are museum-quality. Then there are the gardens - full of flowers and lushly planted. The front porch was the perfect spot for a nightcap. As for the breakfasts, I don't know where to begin. There was always fresh fruit and baked goods, but then each day brought a new surprise - my favorite being the souffle.
So, if you like nice people, great food, beautiful antiques, lovely gardens and front porches, this is the place to stay.
Great Stay, highly recommend!
I had a great stay at the Oak Hill Inn. Wonderful combination of elegance, comfort and personal service. My first instinct was to stay on the main drag so I could be closer to the downtown area, but appreciated the quiet serenity of this neighborhood. Natchez is a very suitable walking town so I was able to start right out the front door and complete the walking tour of the beautiful homes. The hosts were very pleasant and accommodating- the food was fabulous. EC2007
Excellant Respect of Southern History
We just returned from a weekend in Natchez, MS. All the research done on the internet led us to the Oak Hill Bed & Breakfast, but I can truthfully say, the internet pictures didn't do the place justice. It is absolutely gorgeous, peaceful, and very detail-oriented. The hospitality was great. The homemade breakfasts were splendid--there should be more emphasis put on this on their website, for the variety of dishes offered are actually gourmet delicacies. The absolute cleanliness of each and every item placed in the house made it very evident there was pride and respect for antiques and our southern heritage. The price is very much within reason for what you get.
A Must Stay In Natchez!
My husband and I along with another couple spent the labor day weekend in the upstairs suites of Oak Hill. If you're looking for luxury, ambience, relaxation and sinfully delicous homemade breakfast then this is the place.
Sitting on the beautiful front porch in the rockers with a cocktail is absolute solitude, since this home is located in a very quiet area. The gardens are simple but very elegant.
Doug is a great host and is willing to answer any questions you have about his beautiful home. He is also very knowledgeable about Natchez and willing to make suggestions of things to do and places to eat.
Thank you Doug for all your kindness. We wil definitely return.
My wife and I spent the weekend before Christmas at the Historic Oak Hill Inn. That was our second time there. We went the first time on our anniversary the July before and we have been back sense Christmas. So needless to say we love that Inn. We love Doug and Don,,,,those two guys make sure everything there is to your likeing. We have stayed in the upsatairs and downstairs rooms,,,and could not complain if we wanted too. There is simply nothing to complain about. From the home made breakfast to the mint tea and homemade chocolet chip cookies that greet you at the back door when you come into the house, to the rooms, it is all perfect!!!! The back patio and fountain are wonderfull. So peacefull!!!! And something that i really like is the covered parking. That may not be much to you,,but it is to me. Ill inclose some X-mas pic's. I hope you give that ole house a try,,,it nor the host's will let you down.
FABULOUS Bed and Breakfast! Absolutely loved it.
My husband and I visited for the Labor Day holiday. This was truly the best retreat that we've had in a long time. The owners are absolutely at your disposal. The food was to die for....everything is made from scatch including the buttermilk biscuits and sweet potatoe/pecan waffles. If you are looking for outstanding accomodations, great food and an escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, I highly recommend this Bed and Breakfast.
Beautiful Bed & Breakfast!
We stayed in the Beatty room at Oak Hill Inn for a 2 night getaway, and from the moment we arrived were treated like royalty.
Our host, Doug, was very knowledgeable of the area and history of Natchez. He gave us a tour of his beautiful home and showed us to our room. The Beatty room is simply decadent. Chocolates and cold drinks awaited us. The lovely bathroom had a nice surprise - a massive granite shower.
Both mornings we were treated to delicious, home cooked breakfasts and were able to meet the other houseguests. We didn't really want to leave our bed - which was sinfully comfortable, but the smells of coffee, bacon, and other treats pulled us out.
We definitely plan on staying in the same room when we next go to Natchez. Doug was wonderful!
The Absolute Best!
August 28, 2007 -- My daughter and I are preparing to return to what has become our second home: Historic Oak Hill Inn in Natchez, Mississippi. I have lost count of the actual number of visits here in the last18 months; it's probably at least a half dozen. Natchez is a wonderful getaway, particularly for couples or mother/daughter combos. My daughter and I have traveled to Natchez at least twice a year for ten years and have stayed at many fine B&B's in this lovely, historic town. But when our party expanded to include four other people 18 months ago, we found Oak Hill by a lucky accident. We had the entire house and immediately became friends with the owners. This is by far the most charming B&B I have ever encountered. The hosts are, quite simply, the best . . . as is the incredible food. Knowing I had visited Natchez so often, one of our hosts (Doug) made it his personal mission to answer every question I asked about the town and to introduce me to others who could help me learn more about the town's history. Oak Hill has everything a B&B guest would want: romantic atmosphere, lovely gardens, beautiful antiques, amazing food (and presentation!), unmatched hospitality, and convenience (we particularly enjoy morning and evening walks through the Garden District and to nearby restaurants). For romantic getaways, request the Beatty Suite! You will never be disappointed by Oak Hill, and will probably leave immediately planning your return.
Oak Hill is a beautifully restored 1835s Southern "cottage" owned by Doug Mauro. Doug is a great innkeeper, who loves his adopted town, and enjoys suggesting its many attractions. In addition to the beautiful antique decor, he's a talented gardener, and the grounds are filled with beautiful flowers. We enjoyed an outstanding breakfast of fresh fruit and juice, lots of coffee, eggs and especially good bacon and biscuits, plus a New Orleans praline French toast dish that should probably be illegal. Our room was highlighted by a comfortable queen-size half-tester bed, with a luxurious rainfall shower head in the bathroom. One of the nice aspects of this B&B is that guests are welcome in all the many common areas of the inn, unlike some of the plantation mansions which are locked up other than the tour.
