Room, view from back porch, Laverne's hospitality (and breakfast) were all top-notch! Shower in our room (Puckett Suite) is a little bit small, unusual and awkward, but it works. Bedroom of the Puckett Suite is very close to the street so you do get some street noise and it may keep you awake...if you are a light sleeper!

This was the best B&B I ever stayed in. The breakfasts were absolutely wonderful! Served by friendly staff and so complete we were still full at dinner time! Back porch swing and comfortable chairs provided relaxing afternoons to the sound of a cheerful fountain. Deck out on river provided great evening views accompanied by a glass of wine or two....

This inn is conveniently located within walking distance if downtown. It is cute, and comfortable. The back porch is perfect for relaxing and enjoying the view of the lake. Our room was comfortable with a cozy bathroom. The innkeeper is a sweetheart and did her best to accommodate my meal request. She is a wonderful lady. I recommend this inn.

We stayed in the John Reavls Room which opened onto the back porch overlooking the Cane River Lake, a great place to curl up with a book or enjoy wine in the evening. The B&B is nicely furnished and comfortable with complimentary soft drinks and water and excellent breakfasts. It is about a one block walk to Maglieaux's Restaurant, the...

Room was well equipped. Mini refrigerator in hall stocked with free soft drinks, limited by the honor system. Breakfast was delicious and filling. House is within easy walking distance of Front Street.

My husband and I stay here for our anniversary for a night. It was a very nice bed and breakfast we enjoyed the breakfast. If every returned to Natchitoches would stay again. The house keeper was very nice. It was walking distance to shops and restaurants. Thanks

This river front property is so nice you feel like walking into an 1800's house but with 2016 amenities (internet included!). Each morning the inn keeper does her very best for each traveler to have an amazing experience during breakfast. Great place, lovely atmosphere!

This was my first Bed and Breakfast and I was very pleased. The service was very helpful as they answered any questions I had and I always got a quick response when calling, breakfast was delicious, very clean, and the view on the lake makes it so peaceful- love the pier! I would definitely visit Violet Hill again.

This review is long overdue. We stayed at the Violet Hill B&B over a year ago, and I am just now getting around to giving them their well-deserved accolades. My wife and I planned a weekend away in New Orleans and the trip was doomed from the start. The B&B we stayed in was of poor quality, they got our...
