Reviewed 5 July 2017 via mobile

We stayed here last August for our anniversary in the Oleander room. It was worth every penny! The innkeeper Kimberly treated us like family, and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. On your next trip to Natchitoches stay at the Sweet Cane Inn- you won't regret it!

This is an amazing B & B. We arrived on a Friday and were able to check in early. We were greeted by the inn keeper, Kim, who personally showed us to our room, and made sure to explain that she was there to help as needed. We stayed in the Magnolia room. This is the smallest room in the house, but has its own private balcony overlooking the side yard. This is what attracted us to book this room. It has its own bathroom. The room has a queen size bed, tv, small fridge, and two small tables next to the bed. The bathroom has a huge soaker tub, and two sink vanity. The soaker tub is awesome and easily accommodates two people. The shower head is not as powerful as I would like, and is a step or two above a hard drizzling rain. There is wood floor through out the house that has that awesome creaking sound as you walk on it. Definitely takes you back to the time when the house was originally built, and the many footsteps that have walked the floors. The rooms have 12 foot ceilings and the tall doors. The doors have the windows at the top that were able to be open for ventilation back in the day. These were standard in old houses like this, but if you are accustom to a dark room, this will not happen because the light from the hallway or outside will come in. I did go turn off some of the lights in the hall to make it as dark as possible, but some light will still get in. There is also a window unit in the room, and it cools down the room really well. The largest room is the Oleander room that has a king bed and huge bathroom. The bedrooms are on the second and third floors. The downstairs has a ladies and gents sitting room that is cozy and relaxing. There is an awesome staircase were you could easily envision seeing a civil war general coming down the staircase. The breakfast is something that all guests say is amazing, and I was not disappointed. Each day at 4 pm cookies and wine are put out...love those cookies. Its the soft chocolate chip cookies that are nice and thick. The owner, John, likes to mingle with the guest and is a great host. We definitely felt like we were the only ones here, even though there were at least 4 other rooms booked. Guests are able to come and go as they please. There is a very nice southern front porch with rockers. From the B & B it is a short walk to the Main Street with all the shopping and restaurants. This place is at a great location. In the rooms there are diary books for the guests. Many guests said that Sweet Cane Inn is their home away from home, and I can see how it easily can become that. In conclusion this B & B has all the southern charm that you are looking for. It is a great place to relax and unwind with family and friends. The hosts will make you feel like you have known them all your life, and the locations is in the heart of one of the friendliest cities in Louisiana. Put this place on your Bucket List and you will not be disappointed.
Lastly there is rumors of a ghost here. She is a black lady with her hair in a bun. We looked and listened but did not see anything...but that is not to say we will look again next time we come.

I stayed at the Sweet Came Inn for a weekend getaway. I needed to relax and recharge after a bust few weeks. This place was perfect. I could easily walk to the Front street shops and places to eat, but the rooms and house were quiet and relaxing. I stayed in the Magnolia room and it had a balcony that I sat on in the early morning and late afternoons. The soaker tub was fabulous. Every morning the breakfast was fabulous. I was the only one staying during one of my night, as inn keeper made me feel extra special. I can't wait to come back.

Room Tip: Magnolia room has a grand bathroom and balcony. Toward the back of the house so very quiet.

Fully enjoyed our stay at Sweet Cane. The house itself is a large, nicely restored !890's which has maintained much of its original character. We had the Magnolia Room, one of 7 rooms, all with private baths. The attention to detail was noticeable from the color schemes to the chocolate. We toured nearby plantations and other sites around town and Sweet Cane was convenient to all.

Room Tip: Magnolia room had its own fireplace.

We spent the night at Sweet Can on the way from New Orleans to San Augustine, Texas. We were the only guests when we were there and it was sort of coll to have the place to ourselves. When booking online I mentioned my wife was a vegetarian and gave a reminder in the morning. The Inn had no trouble producing a nice vegetarian meal. The building and furnishings are quite nice. No elevator (it is an old house) walking distance to the cute part of town.
