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.

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!

Great fun place for all

This home is a great spacious place for the whole family. This was the second time for our family of ten to stay in this house. Enough room for all inside or outside. Check it out I know you will love it. Thanks Melinda for all your hospitality.
