Understated elegance in a lovely Victorian home on a street filled with beauty. Breakfast did not disappoint. Wine and cheese served in the afternoon. Friendly staff. Gorgeous gardens and inviting porches. Highly recommend.

We stayed with Ron and Eleanor for a few days over new years. Such great hosts who cared about every attention to detail during our stay. We stayed in the Rose suite during our stay which was more than sufficient to our needs. Very cosy with lots of space. Very clean and well equipped. We were able to use the...

My wife and I spent a night of our honeymoon at the Devereaux Shields. The house and gardens are full of charm. We love well-preserved period furniture, and this house didn't disappoint. The owners are completely committed to guest satisfaction. They recommended restaurants, and they even called to make the reservation for us. We loved our complimentary glass of wine...

We arrived early afternoon and were welcomed with a glass of wine from the very friendly owner. We asked for advice where to visit and eat and recommendation was helpful. House is beautiful and rooms just lovely. Breakfast was round a large communal table & we had a great time talking to the other guests.

We stayed at Devereaux Shields House - actually at their "cottage" a short ways down the street from the main house - in October 2014, and were awestruck by the beautiful furnishings and decor. It was like sleeping in a museum, with 5-star service. The breakfasts were especially delicious, and hosts Ron and Eleanor were warm and accommodating - they...

This is a great bed and breakfast: the hosts are welcoming and helpful, the room was extremely spacious and comfortable, and the homemade quiche, cheese grits, ham and BEST biscuits in the south were delightful. We stayed in Clara's cottage ca. 1897. Our dog was also welcomed here.

Me and my wife stayed here while travelling around the southern states on our honeymoon and we still rave about the place. We always compare how soft and nice beds are compared to this place. The linen smells of almonds and the breakfast was superb. Would love to return here one day.

My sister and I thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to Natchez just after Christmas 2014! It was due to the great hospitality of the couple hosting us at the Devereaux Shields House and their knowledgeable guidance that we enjoyed every single tour and meal during our stay at the quaint Aunt Clara's Cottage property. The breakfasts were presented and served...
