Welcome to Belmont Plantation, Est 1857 in the heart of the Mississippi Delta! The mansion consists of 9000 sq ft, 8 bedrooms, and 7 baths- we offer each room for rent individually. A stay includes your own private bedroom and bath as well as full access to the plantation's public rooms and grounds. You can sit and relax in the Lady's or Gentlemen's Parlors, enjoy the breeze on one of our huge screened porches, have a meal in our grand dining room, or cozy up with a good book in our second floor lounge. Belmont is decorated in the finest period antiques and some outbuildings are still undergoing restoration work, which you are welcome to peek in on (like the Smokehouse or the Panther Burn Cottage)! Onsite, you will be hosted by Miss Camille Collins and given an historic tour by our knowledgeable Miss Sandra Stillman- both of whom are cousins of Belmont's current owner. They can suggest local sights and activities, help you with dinner plans, or allow you to enjoy the peace and quiet Belmont has to offer.
The mansion is heated and cooled with a geothermal system that keeps it perfectly comfortable year round. Our suites have exquisite antique furnishings, soft linens, and brand new bathrooms with complimentary soap & shampoo. You will also be provided with bottled water, fresh towels, turn down service, and free wifi, but there is no television on the property as we encourage our guests to enjoy the experience of our historic venue.
This particular suite, the Captain's Suite, is named after the gentleman in the oil portrait over the fireplace. He was likely a local riverboat captain bringing folks out to the "wild west" as Mississippi was known in the early 19th century. The room is at the southwest corner of the house upstairs and has lovely views of the front and side yards, as well as great natural light. It is located just off the upstairs lounge and nearby both the front and back porches. There is a walk-in closet that can be private or can be shared with the adjacent room; the Matriarch's Suite. The circa 1840 Empire bed in this room is an Olympic Queen size, which is a bit bigger than a modern-day queen.
