We stayed with Ron & Mimi for (sadly) only one night in mid March in the Oak Room which was very roomy, with a great sized bathroom. Situated one block from the river and a lovely walking path. Ron & Mimi are wonderful hosts, warm and friendly, and both are passionate about their home and the local area. Breakfast was...

Made a last minute reservation in Natchez. It was only luck that we stayed at the Wensel house. Ron and Mimi have been hosting guests for many years. They know what they are doing and are excellent hosts. The breakfast was generous and delicious. The room was clean and comfortable. Natchez is a very interesting city and Ron and Mimi...

Spent one night in Wensel House. The bed was comfortable, the hosts extremely kind and accommodating, the building beautiful inside and out, and the breakfast the best I had over my ten days in the South. Very reasonably priced, too. Highly recommended.

My daughter and I had stayed one night for a short weekend getaway. Ron and Mimi were very nice and gave us the low down on the area, maps, etc. The breakfast was wonderful and our room was very nice. I would stay there again.

This was a one-night stop for us on our way to the Mississippi Gulf Coast. So glad we stayed with Ron and Mimi who were very knowledgeable about the area. The B&B was convenient to walking in the old historic area and the Mississippi bluff area. It should be noted that the rooms are on the second floor and may...

We had such a great time at the Wensel House. We really liked the atmosphere there; friendly relaxed, intelligent, urbane hosts and a house that feels lived in rather than a show home. We felt like we'd gone to stay with some old friends. If I was ever in Natchez again - which doesn't seem likely - then I'll be...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The restored Victorian house is conveniently located for walking, being only a block from the park along the edge of the park overlooking the river and only 4 blocks from the center of town. The three guest rooms are on the 2nd floor. Each has 2 beds (Queen & Single) and a private "en suite" bathroom adjoining just that room. A full breakfast is freshly-cooked each morning (eggs, bacon, sausage, grits, home-made biscuits, blueberry pancakes, fresh fruit, orange juice, & coffee or tea). Wine, soft drinks, and fresh fruit are gratis and are available any time. You help yourself to Franzia Chardonnay in a box in the refrigerator and to soft drinks and purified water and ice in the bar at the foot of the stairs. Your hosts enjoy providing you with guidance on what to see and where to eat and drink. A free, small, secluded, private, on-site parking lot is located behind the house, at the end of Wensel Street. ... more   less
