Property description

Isabella House is a circa 1885 cottage with vintage character and charm located in the Downriver Historic District of Natchez, Mississippi.

Although furnished with many unique and antique pieces, it still offers modern conveniences such as cable, internet, dishwasher and washer/dryer as well as complimentary snacks and beverages. The rear courtyard is spacious and private and has a grill and chiminea for guest use. At Isabella House, you'll be within walking distance of wonderful downtown shops, restaurants and entertainment, but you might not want to leave the back porch!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: I'm owner Jacqueline Cummings, and my business is based on the belief that my customers' needs are of the utmost importance, and I am committed to meeting those needs. As a result, a high percentage of my business is from repeat customers and referrals. I would welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and deliver you the service and travel experience that you deserve. Take a look at the Isabella House website, and if you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact me. I'd love to hear from you!

Why the Owner Chose Natchez, MS, USA:
When you see the 'BEFORE' pictures on my website, you might understand why others couldn't see the potential in this property, but, although the renovation took a very long time, I always knew it could be as amazing as it is today! It was literally saved by local historic preservation efforts (which prevented it from being demolished).....and me!
