About the Historic J N Stone House Musicale B&B in Natchez Mississippi


Rare antique maps adorn the walls of this unique property, outstanding for its antebellum origins as a private billiard hall built in the style of a Greek temple, as well as for its rare pocket doors with ornamental glasswork. The builder was David Stanton, whose brother built world-famous Stanton Hall, also located in the Downtown Historic District. Acquired in 1877 by J. N. Stone, it has remained in the Stone family for over 135 years, now operating as a bed & breakfast, featuring family portraits and antiques.

Additionally it has won the Historic Natchez Foundation's 2003 Restoration Award as well as TripAdvisor's Travelers' Choice Awards in 2012 & 2013 for the top 25 bed & breakfast inns in the United States.

The oldest part of this unique antebellum home was built circa 1850 as a luxurious private billiard hall by David Stanton, whose brother Frederic built Stanton Hall. It stood on the grounds of The Elms, David Stanton's home, and was later expanded into a house. Acquired in 1877 by Joseph Newman Stone and his wife Theodora Britton, great-grandparents of the present owner, it is now on the National Register of Historic Places. The award-winning restoration undertaken in 1999 led to the establishment of bed & breakfast accommodations in 2006. The lodging quality has consistently ranked high on TripAdvisor's list of Natchez B&B / Inns. See The Billiard Hall for more history.
