Welcome to the Devereaux Shields House, a beautiful bed and breakfast just steps from historic downtown Natchez, Mississippi. This B&B is listed on the National Historic Register for significant homes. Our Natchez inn includes two properties: the elegant 1893 Queen Anne Victorian main house, and the charming 1873 Victorian Aunt Clara’s Cottage. The Devereaux Shields House now features 6 rooms: two beautifully appointed suites in the main house and 4 spacious rooms in the cottage with heart pine floors and a large veranda. Guests will enjoy an amazing breakfast each morning and relaxing in our lovely gardens. The cottage also offers pet-friendly rooms. Colonel and Mrs. Devereaux Shields are believed to have built the Queen Anne Victorian-style home in Natchez, MS between 1893 and 1900. Colonel Shields was a veteran and hero for his exploits in the Philippines during the Spanish-American War in the late 19th Century. Our homes are just a few blocks from the 200-foot-high Natchez Bluffs, which offers a stunning view of the Mississippi River for several miles in both directions.
Fully immerse yourself in the distinct charm and character of the antebellum South with a stay at our historic and elegantly restored plantation home that has been converted into a bed and breakfast inn. From the rocking chair-lined front porch to a fireplace in your bedroom, you won’t find a more accommodating place to relax in the whole country, we do declare! From ornate fireplaces to glimmering chandeliers, to original heart pine floors—Belle Air (Belair) will take you on a journey back in time. The inn features 13-foot high ceilings, beautiful antiques, and antebellum architecture. The inn has become a very popular location for movies and music videos. Maybe your favorite Nashville musician filmed a video at our inn? Belle Air is the original name of the historic 19th-century mansion located just 5.5 miles from downtown Nashville, Tennessee. Over the past 3 years, the mansion underwent a dramatic transformation, going from endangered treasure to a great house restored to its former glory. Now, it is open to the public for the first time as a historic Inn for all to enjoy. We are the only historic Bed and Breakfast in Nashville and you can learn more about our B&B and our restoration by reading our history. From floor to ceiling, Belle Air is truly a Southern gem. We handled the restoration with great care, preserving the existing layout and bringing the original heart pine floors black to life. Inside Belle Air, you’ll find many opulent finishes such as the 27 chandeliers that grace its ceilings.
