Guests may choose between our three Victorian Homes that make up our Devereaux Shields House B&B during their visit. This includes our 1893 Main House, our 1873 Aunt Clara’s Cottage a few steps away and our newly restored 1893 Bost House next to our Main House. Our three homes are designed to provide guests comfortable and romantic choices in room accommodations (queen rooms, king rooms or king suites), amenities and rates for variety and best value. The Main House suites provide an affordably more luxurious 2-room suites and spacious lodging experience for some and relaxing common areas for all guests. The Cottage queen and king rooms are pet-friendly and popular for more budget conscious guests, and family and group getaways desiring privacy. The Bost House 2-room suite and queen rooms offers a wonderful mix of luxury and economy in a historic environment. Our homes are within comfortable walking distance of downtown sites, restaurants, shopping and magnificent views of the Mississippi River Bluff.
Mornings begin with early morning beverages by 7am. We pride ourselves on providing guests a wonderful breakfast experience that combines great tastes in a comfortable ambiance (music and fire-side in cool weather) served with Southern Hospitality while also honoring special dietary needs. This includes a sumptuous seated & served 3-course Southern breakfast of fresh-cut fruit, custom entrée typically with southern grits or potatoes and side meats with a course of baked-goods, pastry or toast accompanied by local jams & butter. We offer a full Southern breakfast from 8:30am – 9:00am served in the house with the most guests, which most frequently is the Cottage. We are introducing a variety of lighter breakfast fare for the convenience of early or late risers: 7:30am – 8:30am and 9:00am – 10:00am.
We are proud of our 5-star track record of providing guests of all ages and origins a relaxing experience for over 15 years. We welcome the opportunity to provide guests unmatched southern hospitality, our guest-renowned Victorian Southern Comfort Experience and a Southern getaway to remember.
