Our exquisite breakfast served in two courses and  our elegant yet comfortable guest rooms with all the modern amenities  ensure a pleasant stay at this impressive Bed and Breakfast located in the National Historic Landmark District of Natchitoches, Louisiana.  A Queen Anne influence is evident with  the wraparound two-story gallery.  This architectural style blends beautifully  with the Greek Revival style reflected in the colossal columns on the massive brick pillars.

PAINSTAKINGLY renovated and decorated with an unerring eye for antiques… Gourmet Magazine

High ceilings, heart pine floors and five fireplaces showcase exquisite mid 19th century antiques and European cut crystal chandeliers.  Two comfortable parlors provide a place for guest to visit with  colleagues, friends or family they may be traveling with.

The quiet guest bedrooms and private Guest House offer queen-sized mahogany and rosewood full tester beds, silk brocade drapes, tapestry chairs, and  every luxurious amenity desired.

The multi-course candlelight breakfast in the formal dining room is truly a feast for the senses.  We are within walking distance of many fine shops,  museums and fine restaurants, and a short drive to the beautiful plantations along the Cane River, many of which are open for tours.

The Judge Porter House Bed and Breakfast

Natchitoches is the oldest city in the Louisiana Purchase and is surrounded by the magnificent Kisatchie National Forest, which offers a myriad of biking and hiking trails.

When you have completed a full day of touring our fine city, you may  want to return to the Judge Porter House and stroll through the beautiful gardens.

“Out favorite Inn,  ask for the New Orleans room,  filled with c.1860 furniture (the queen-size bed and matching dresser are from a wedding dowry), the airy upstairs room makes for a great weekend getaway”.
