We stayed 2 nights at the beautiful Clifton house up on the bluff overlooking the Mississippi River. The house is 104 years old (if I remember correctly) and has recently been refinished. I prefer the older antique style B&B but this one was still beautiful. We checked in at the office house at Starling Rest. This looks like a neat place to stay too but doesn't have the view of Clifton House a block over. Check in was very efficient and our host walked us over to the Clifton House and showed us around. There is a nice sitting area on the main floor and kitchen with a Keurig for coffee and an ice machine. The rooms all appeared to be spacious. Air conditioning and wifi worked great. We had the "Observatory" room which is on the entire 3rd floor. It was likely the attic at one time. Wow we couldn't believe this room. It had a sitting room with couches, pull out bed and wet bar. Then the other side had a huge bedroom with two comfy chairs overlooking the Mississippi. Just amazing. Could have stayed up in that room if there wasn't so much else to see and enjoy like the balcony downstairs! King size bed and pillows were very comfortable.
The balcony was very large with a number of nice chairs, couch and couch swing. What a great place to sit and watch the beautiful sunset.
It was an easy 10 min walk to the main streets with the restaurants.
What a memorable stay!

Room Tip: The Observatory room is unbeatable! There is another front facing room with a view of the river but...

We stopped off in Natchez to rest our heads on way to Nashville. Starlings is a very well run, hospitable guest house with great vintage decor, lots of extras (coffees, liquor, water) an honesty bar & really cosy comfortable rooms. It's quiet, has off-road parking facilities & was a perfect spot to visit Natchez. Recommend.

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful stay. It felt like home. It was my birthday weekend so we left to go out and about and Christina was nice enough to text us and offer recommendations and points of interest. I never felt unsafe, we had no trouble finding parking. The bed was comfortable, our room was clean and beautiful. Christina was so nice. I am amazed how every single thing you could ever need is there for you. There are signs everywhere that says to let them know if you need anything. The thing is, they mean it. I love the little town so much I think we will need to come back for a longer weekend or maybe even a week.

Room Tip: We rented the Magnolia Room. It is beautiful and big.

This place is perfect. It is so close to all the shops and restaurants downtown, so everything is in walking distance. The property is very spacious and very accommodating. It has everything you need for a weekend stay. It is a very relaxing place!

Paul and Kristine were so inviting and friendly! They definitely make you feel at home and very welcomed! We enjoyed our short stay but we will definitely be back! The thing we found most impressive was how organized, neat and lovely the bed & breakfast was. It's a perfect place for Louisiana hospitality and charm!

Thanks for the nice review, Taylor! Much appreciated! Quick comment: Although we pride ourselves on Southern Hospitality -- we never considered it "Louisiana Hospitality" until now since we are in Mississippi -- but we'll be happy to flaunt that accolade as well. :)
