Overview

About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Den, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 12-14)

The Wharf Master’s House, remodeled in 2010, is situated right in the heart of the most historic district of Natchez.

This spacious home is within walking distance of 12 antebellum homes, including Holly Hedges, Greenlea, Texada, and the Governor Holmes House, four of the oldest & most-toured homes in Natchez. It is only one block from Rosalie and the Great Mississippi River Balloon Race fairgrounds, and just a short stroll to many restaurants and Natchez’ exciting nightlife.

Our home is perfect for large groups, comfortable, and not pretentious. You will feel welcome and at ease in this unique shabby chic cottage decorated with historic family mementos. This is not just any house. This is a home.

There were 10 of us all siblings and spouses it is the perfect home with all the conviences of home. Lots of room to move about a great front porch and a large deck on the back. We have stayed there 4 times and it is always clean and has everything you could possibly ask for. Thanks to Mel for everything.

Wonderful spacious home

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was perfect for our family reunion. Spacious enough that the children were not under our feet all day. We will definitely stay here on our next trip to Natchez.

Wonderful home

  • 5 of 5

Melinda greeted us with a smile and showed us around the place, making us feel right at home. All the basics such as linens and even a few spare air mattresses were provided for us, but she went even further by stocking the fridge and the kitchen with fresh fruits, drinks and desserts! The home is quite unique with its split level feature and plenty of rooms. We brought a group of 10 and never felt cramped, it was actually just cozy enough. The home is within walking distance of quite a few good restaurants downtown and is on a beautiful street, just walking the blocks was a nice way to catch some of the beautiful Natchez scenery. We will definitely be booking this house with Melinda again!
