Brick dependency built circa 1853 on the grounds of Lansdowne, a former country estate and cotton plantation three miles from downtown Natchez. The main house retains its original furnishings as well as furnishings from other antebellum Natchez homes such as Longword, the Towers and the Shields Town House.
The guest rooms were originally a billiard room and office and a governess’s room and school room. The billiard room is now a spacious bedroom furnished with a queen sized four poster bed, a large single day bed and an armoire with mirror, plus remote-controlled heating, cooling and celling fans, and Wi-Fi plus TV with Netflix, Amazon, Starz and more. Adjoining the bedroom is a full kitchen and dining area fully stocked with pots, pans and serving dishes. The updated bath has a large tiled walk in shower and plenty of closet space. Your view from the covered brick gallery encompasses a beautiful green lawn with stately oaks, pines and magnolias, and azaleas, camellias and roses.
Guests have access to the 120-acre property. You can stroll through gardens in the 10-acre yard, relax in a hammock, fish in the pond, or walk through the woods and fields where you’ll see herons, owls, wood ducks, pileated woodpeckers and occasionally foxes and wild turkey.
Interaction with guests
One of the current owners, a descendant of the original builders of Lansdowne, lives in the main house and will welcome you into the great hall for wine, cocktails or other seasonal beverages and a tour of the house.
