About the property

Private circa 1885 cottage in prime location

Isabella House is a circa 1885 cottage with vintage character and charm located in the Downriver Historic District of Natchez, Mississippi. It has been lovingly renovated from a state of total disrepair and is available for nightly and weekly stays comfortably accommodating 2-4 guests. Although furnished with many unique and antique pieces, it still offers modern conveniences such as cable, internet, dishwasher and washer/dryer as well as complimentary snacks and beverages. The rear courtyard is spacious and private and has a grill and chiminea for guest use. At Isabella House, you'll be within walking distance of wonderful downtown shops, restaurants and entertainment, but you might not want to leave the back porch!

Jackie Cummings purchased this cottage in 2001

Why Jackie Cummings chose Natchez

When you see the 'BEFORE' pictures on my website, you might understand why others couldn't see the potential in this property, but, although the renovation took a very long time, I always knew it could be as amazing as it is today! It was literally saved by local historic preservation efforts (which prevented it from being demolished).....and me!

Awesome place to stay for many reasons...

  • 5 of 5

Isabella House is the perfect home away from home while staying in Natchez. So perfect, in fact, that we have sworn off hotels and other rentals! We have stayed at many different hotels and b&bs around Natchez over the past several years. None can match the convenience or comfort of Isabella House. If we can’t book Isabella House, we stay home! Jackie has been nothing short of wonderful as a hostess-always accommodating and helpful. Communication with her is super easy. The house is clean, well stocked, and very well located in relation to anything you may want to do while in Natchez. Cannot day enough good things about Isabella House! — J & O, Effie, LA

Perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Isabella Cottage and Natchez MS both were great experiences. The cottage felt like home and the town people all were so kind and friendly. We road our bicycles all over the town. Only drove the car to experience the Natchez Trace parkway a few miles. Jackie you are an amazing successful woman. Great to meet you. Thank you. Sincerely Lisa

Our Natchez vacation

  • 5 of 5

The owner of The Isabella House, Jackie Cummings, was professional, personable, and, in short, the most accommodating and perfect hostess all during our visit in her home. The home is a vintage cottage with wonderfully appropriate furnishings and décor. Go visit Natchez and stay at the Isabella House!

This is why one visits Natchez

  • 5 of 5

Very cute, very practical place for a couple or maybe two to stay. Easy walk to downtown, wonderful east-facing back porch and wooded yard.

One complete, very nice BR and a VERY comfortable queen Murphy bed in the LR.

Jackie was great to work with and made sure everything was all set for us.

We would definitely make this place our top choice for future visits!

Location

Natchez is steeped in history and has an array of magnificent antebellum homes. You can get an up-close and personal feel of the old south touring these beautiful and unique homes and properties. Some are open year round, and many others are featured during Natchez' Spring and Fall Pilgrimages in March and October. We are also home of The Great Mississippi River Balloon Race in October-an event you don't want to miss! The Bluff Blues Fest, The Food and Wine Fest, The Festival of Music and the Independence Day Celebration with Fireworks on the River are just some of the many attractions that keep life in this bluff city fun and entertaining! There are also ghost tours, the Natchez Little Theater, the Under-the-Hill Bar and Saloon and the St. Catherine Creek National Wildlife Refuge among many other local attractions....truly something for everyone! Come enjoy what suites you!
