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 rooms 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 Belle Island Suite, is named for the Mississippi River island where Belmont hosted her hunting club for 50 years. The room is at the northeast corner of the house upstairs and has lovely views of the rear 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; it also has a door leading to the upper back porch. This is the only suite with a King size bed and it has a mix of vintage pieces and antiques that are as old as the 18th century. There is a beautiful portrait of Marie Antoinette over the mantle piece and a gorgeous hand-carved dressing chest made by RJ Horner of New York in the 19th century.
