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.

Still perfection.

Memphis, Tennessee

This is my second visit to Dunlieth and it didn’t disappoint. We did not stay in the same room however each of the main house second floor rooms are just as glorious as the next. The grounds are impeccable. There’s a lovely gardening greenhouse that you can walk through. The centuries old magnolia tree is a great place to take pictures . I love everything about this place. We arrive very late so the pool area was closed and so was the castle restaurant but we had already eaten down by the river. So if you’re looking for an extremely luxurious hotel that can take you on a journey into the past, this is it.

Step back in time and experience luxury!

Kansas City, Missouri

Our family visited Natchez on the way to a week in Florida and we decided to take a slight detour to stay in the Dunleith Inn. We booked a room in the quarters located right behind the main house and was wonderful. My husband and I had a King size bed in an area with our own bathroom and then if you follow the circular stairs up to a more open air/loft/attic space there was a luxurious queen size bed and bathroom for our daughters. The kids loved having their own space and we each enjoyed our own area. Exposed brick and first class coffee in the room made for a wonderful night. We were on the top floor on the end so the location was perfect. We walked the grounds of the estate during the evening and had reservations at the Castle restaurant which was wonderful. We all then changed after dinner and swam in the beautiful pool that we had all to ourselves. Wonderful lighting illuminated the pool and we felt like we had stepped back in time as we wondered the estate grounds and shared with our teenage girls about the history of the south. I would highly recommend this location to anyone visiting Natchez, and if you are not planning on visiting, I would recommend you take a detour to step back in time and experience the Dunleith!
