1888 Wensel House, a restored Natchez Victorian town house, is simply and attractively furnished with antiques.
The Parlor and Dining Room:
Guests enjoy full use of the antique-filled parlor and dining room, where they enjoy classical music and morning papers. Fresh fruit and wine are available all day and evening. Outstanding Victorian plasterwork adorns the ceilings of both rooms. A generous plantation breakfast is served in the dining room.
Our location in the heart of the historic area is perfect for walking the town and its historic neighborhoods. We are one block from the carriage rides and the bluff overlooking the river. Severalhouses are less than a few blocks away. The central intersection of town (Main & Commerce) is just five blocks away.
Moderate rates coupled with complimentary food and drink make 1888 Wensel House a good value.

Amenities include wireless internet access, color cable TV, private adjoining baths, feather pillows as well as fiberfill, clean white cotton bedspreads.
