This is the only B&B or accommodations right on the Natchez Trace itself. Our room was rustic, not fancy but comfy beds and bedding. We were there when it was basically empty but judging from what I saw if the B&B bulking itself had more people staying in it or it was full, I can imagine it might be fairly noisy due to the ill fitting doors and very old construction. In the common dinning room is a Kuerig Coffee maker with coffee and tea for 24 hour use. A nice home cooked breakfast is offered in the morning except Sundays and it was tasty. Nearby are old village buildings you can walk around, interesting and hark back to a harsher time. They have a Cafe/restaurant of some renown which is closed on Sundays when we were there but has a stellar reputation for great lunch and dinner items, we were sorry we missed it so cannot speak from personal experience.Note this place is remote from other food sources, we had to drive about 25 minutes to find dinner because their cafe was closed on the Sunday we were there. Also on Sunday mornings you cannot get the full on hot breakfast, they offer a breakfast basket only. This is due to the religious nature of the facility. If you like basic no frills accomodations and want the convenience of being right on the Trace this B&B will work great for you. We enjoyed our short stay there.
Was traveling up the entire length of the Natchez Trace Parkway & had reserved the Burford Cabin for one night . . . wish we had booked a longer stay! Even without a TV or WiFi, the rest of the ammenties were excellent & the king size bed downstairs was SO comfortable . . . the best night sleep on the entire trip! The breakfast the next morning was awesome! The staff were super friendly. The only disappointment was the nearby Council House Cafe was closed for renovations. Will definitely stay here again!
Simple, overpriced accommodations, however the price needs to be understood in the context of proceeds being used to support the adjoining non-profit. French Camp was our only option bicycling the Trace between Jackson and Kosciosco. It was a cool night, yet we could not turn the heat on without having to contact someone after-hours. Breakfast was not remarkable. pretty much standard chain hotel fare. Disappointing, in that the camp makes and sells it own bread, which we had hoped to sample. . We taken aback upon learning, on arrival, that despite the person who took our reservations glowing description of the food in the camp's cafe, the cafe was in fact closed for renovations, leaving us few options. We were given leftover burgers to take to our room gratis. The French Camp B&B was overall clean, cozy. We enjoyed the grounds and were heartened by the Academy's apparent success in rebuilding a sense of family, community and self-esteem for the troubled, at-risk youths who board there.
Made plans to stay here based on a review in a popular motorcycles magazine and was not disappointed. We stayed in "Ed's Room" upstairs and were very comfortable. The room was perfect after riding the Natchez Trace in what turned out to be 103 degree heat!!! Breakfast was delicious and was just the right amount, the homemade blackberry preserves were the best.
I stayed at French Camp several years ago and loved everything about it. The decor was beautiful, peaceful quiet setting and delicious breakfast. Something has changed. The slipcovers were dirty and cushions looked like no one had touch them in months. The grounds and rooms could use a good deep cleaning. Cobwebs everywhere. The hot plates on the buffet looked more like something a cheap hotel chain would have out for breakfast. Something The breakfast was ok. The baked eggs were filled with eggshells and not sure what was in the baked hash browns. They were not edible. I will give it another try but something has definitely changed. Is there new management?
I stayed in Victoria's room in the main lodge last week for one night. The old log cabin structure was wonderful and peaceful. I was able to walk around the French Camp Historic District, admiring all of the beautiful log cabin structures as the sun set and as the sun rose the next morning. I had the place to myself! The freshly prepared breakfast was amazing. Eggs, creamy grits, delicious sausage, spiced apples, and a delicious biscuit were served in abundance and I enjoyed every bit of it. I look forward to visiting again!
We stayed hear few weeks ago and had a very good time. The folks we're very friendly and the breakfast was wonderful. French Camp is a place everyone should know about and visit. The Bed and Breakfast great place to stay if you're traveling the Natchez Trace..
Our stay at French Camp B&B was nice enough however the remote location can be a little inconvenient especially on the weekends. Be advised there is no kitchen service on Sundays and if they forget to provide the promised breakfast basket you will hit the road on an empty stomach. Pros: 1. It was very quiet and peaceful. 2. Rooms were clean and comfortable. 3. Very unique place to spend the night. Cons: 1. Very remote. (may be a pro unless you are low on gas or hungry) 2. No Television reception. 3. Kitchen does not serve breakfast on Sundays. Conclusion: Best place on the Trace to spend the night. Plan ahead and you will have a nice visit.
We booked our stay at French Camp because we were three couples riding the Natchez Trace. Unfortunately the B & B Jr. cabin we booked didn't work out for our group, but Monica, the B & B Manager, was able to adjust our accommodations for our two night stay. The entire camp is a historical destination, make sure you walk around and learn the history of all the buildings. Our breakfast each morning was phenomenal; grits, hash brown casserole, different meats, unique eggs and homemade biscuits and jellies. Plenty of room for us to meet each night in the B & B to play games and enjoy time together. I would definitely recommend the Bed & Breakfast for anyone looking for a unique stay along the Trace.
We spent two nights in the Carriage House. Love relaxing on the porch swing and exploring the history of French Camp. The hospitality and wonderful breakfast can be beat. The Carriage House is pet friendly!
