We were excited at the thought of this place from reviews, local, and history. It did have the best view of the river and a couple of nice spots to sit and see. However, from first contact it was disappointing. The owner did not confirm reservation until I sent an email as we were leaving home demanding a response. When... More

Beautiful views of the Mississippi. Jefferson Davis was married in the parlor of the main house. You can actually stay in that room. We stayed in the River Vue room about the dining hall. We had a private balcony overlooking the river and grounds. The caretaker, Glenda, was a superb host which was a huge plus for this B &... More

Ok the reservations first. This is an older place and the buildings and grounds need some work and you can tell the working on bring the quality of the physical property up. Now why 4 stars. The room was large, comfortable, clean and peaceful. Enough so that you can overlook some of the outstanding maintenance issue and required updates. The... More

The main house was a little bit creepy. Very close to being cute, but everything looks like it needs a fresh coat of paint. Ice bucket but no ice, no microwave, and overgrown gardens. Excellent view of the Mississippi, good location close to town but not in town. Owners are in the process of restoring and could improve soon.

We stayed at the Briars over Mothers Day and enjoyed it tremendously. The staff was so accommodating and the grounds were beautiful. The view of the Mississippi from the lookout area was beautiful at sunset. Definitely a place to stay.

We stayed in the River View room and the view is great. We stayed four nights, had wonderful breakfasts (the eggs are wonderful), the staff were very friendly and treat you like family. The grounds are beautiful and very peaceful. Would stay again in a heart beat. The people of Natchez were all welcoming and just down home good people.... More

This was the perfect place for our anniversary trip. It is quaint and still in the 1800 time period. Nestled on top of a hill overlooking the river. It needs a little updating but when I come back, we will stay here. Very quiet. Ms Glenda is awesome! The breakfast is delicious. Best grits I've ever tasted and I'm from... More

We stayed here as a group on tour so we had the whole of the house to ourselves - what a find. The house was enormous with huge bedrooms - ours had two bathrooms and a bedroom that was very large and overlooking the front of the house to the garden. The facilities were good , although I felt was... More

We stayed In the Carriage House at the Briar’s on May 19 and 20th. While in the past this was likely a lovely place, it needs Maintenance with a capital M.

We stayed at the Briars over Mother's Day weekend and had the entire plantation to ourselves! The views of the Mississippi were breathtaking and the grounds were so much fun to walk around. Mr. Leon was very accommodating and full of information. One of the best parts was Ms. Glenda who cooked our breakfast in the morning. She was a... More
