Stay in an antique plantation mansion

Dunleith is a beautiful plantation mansion dating from 1856 and set in 40 acres of grounds alongside the Mississippi River. With exciting accommodation options ranging from a stay in the Old Dairy Barn to a room in the mansion house itself, this plantation is the ideal place for a historic Mississippi break. Alongside atmospheric house tours, guests can also enjoy a meal at the Castle Restaurant, set in surroundings dating from the 1790’s and take a relaxing stroll through the landscaped grounds in order to soak up the Old South atmosphere.

Southern elegance

Dunleith is a town house surrounded by a park with a carriage house, stable and kitchen, all now converted into a guest house with many rooms and a restaurant. We enjoyed the latter for dinner and for lunch. Both featured good food and excellent service. The receipt entitled us to tour the first floor of the old home. The upper floors are rented rooms. A knowledgeable tour guide explained the history and changes to the property. You should see this property in Natchez as well as enjoying the restaurant.

San Antonio

My wife and I were on a 10 day driving trip, starting at our home in a historic district north of downtown San Antonio. Four nights in Hotel Monteleone, New Orleans, two nights Nottoway Plantation, south of Baton Rouge, two nights Dunleith Historic Inn, stayed in room 201 January 10 and 11, 2017, and two nights at Woodbine Hotel in Madisonville Texas. All historic. Room 201 is a corner room. Quite comfortable and tasteful. Good bathroom area. All clean. Well equipped. Quiet while we were there. Warm while we were there; snow fell the last morning. Mansion is beautiful. Grounds are beautiful. Area is historic. I liked Natchez. Had two breakfasts and one dinner in the Castle Restaurant. Enjoyed the place, and liked the food and service. I highly recommend Dunleith. I should add that my wife did not like Dunleith as much as I did. Two problems while we were there: A water main broke first morning. Water was turned off during the day. Water main was repaired, and water flow restored by late afternoon. Dunleith management had a solution to the lack of water. It owns a bed and breakfast type place in downtown Natchez. We drove over and took a shower there. Nice place, above the mighty Mississippi River, but I prefer the inn. The driveways were muddy while we were there. So we tended to track mud into living areas and our vehicle. Solution recommended by staff was to park on the concrete driveway below our room. I would be surprised if Dunleith does not improve the driveway so that it does not get muddy in rainy weather.
