"Friendly place and great breakfast"
This old Victorian house is beautifully restored and situated in the center of historic Vicksburg. The history of the house and the town is part of the atmosphere that makes this a most interesting stay. The proprietors are friendly and attentive. The breakfast is wonderful and there is a nice restaurant within easy walking distance for having dinner. […] The old neighborhood where this B&B is located is a bit mixed as in any old Southern town which still survives despite having seen 'better' days. We enjoyed the 'social hour' which provides for a welcome unwinding after a long drive. We wish we had more time to spend in this historic town and house but had to continue on to New Orleans. We hope to be back. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
My wife and I stayed at the Baer House Inn this weekend and absolutely loved it. Doug was very helpful and courteous and pleasant to converse with. We had an awesome time here and recommend it for anyone staying in Vicksburg.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"An historic stop in an historic town"
Lovely bed and breakfast in charming large home, the rooms are spacious and well decorated. The hosts are outstanding, helpful and excellent cooks. The Baer is centrally located, they have breakfasts and a five o'clock wine offering. If you want fresh towels daily, you need to say something (or hang up your towels to dry) as there is no room attention […] after you move in - a very minor thing in a very enjoyable stay. This location is infinitely preferable to the casino hotels in the area. Call if rooms appear filled; a space frequently opens up. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Really enjoyed our Stay"
Convenient to downtown and very friendly proprietors. Breakfast was very good. Enjoyed snacks and happy hour. We had a two year old and they were great with him. This is the second B&B we have stayed at in Vicksburg and we highly recommend the Baer House Inn. The transom does let in a fair bit of hall light.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Doug Cousineau is the best, the ultimate bed and breakfast host: kind, knowledgeable, helpful, thoughtful, generous. Because I had trouble climbing stairs, he gave me a first floor room. His knowledge of Mississippi history, restaurants, attractions and customs really helps the traveler decide where to go, what to do.
"Perfection in hospitality"
02/03/14 cole-mc Baltimore, Maryland
I've travelled to Vicksburg on business four times and stayed at Baer House twice. The elegance of the house is matched only by the generous spirit of the host. Doug Cousineau went out of his way to make an early breakfast. He offered great tour guide suggestions, and even provided a bicycle for touring the military park. This is a terrific place, and as good a B&B value as I've ever come across.
"Two Great Nights in Vicksburg"
12/06/13 COChief Denver, CO
My wife and I recently stayed a couple of nights in Vicksburg in the middle of a several day tour of the Natchez Trace running from Jackson to Natchez. The Inn was definitely one of the best B & B's we've stayed in on any of our US travels. The Bonnie Blue room was quite spacious and afforded access to a semi-private balcony for sittin' and sippin'. Appointments were appropriate for a first class Inn and were consistent with the time period represented. The hosts were quite knowledgeable in area history and very willing to share that knowledge. And best of all, the bed was wonderfully comfortable!

We arrived in Vicksburg and were amazed at the beauty of the Baer House Inn. We enjoyed Doug's stories, wonderful breakfasts and conversation. We staying in the Mei Ling suite which was spacious, clean and very comfortable. We couldn't ask for more.
"We Enjoyed Baer House Inn So Much, We Could Baerly Leave"

What a delightful stay we had at Baer House Inn!! We treated our parents to a long weekend in Vicksburg as their Christmas present. Thus, we wanted a special place to spend some time with them. Knowing that we arrived several hours earlier than our 4 pm check-in, we wanted only to leave one of our cars at the inn so we could begin sight-seeing in one vehicle. Doug was home and was all too happy to accommodate our request. After seeing some of the sights of Vicksburg, we found our way back to Baer House to check in. Check in was quick and we were shown to our rooms - Bonnie Blue and Scarlet Suites. At the evening social hour, we met the other guests, enjoyed some refreshments, and were entertained by Doug's commentary about the Baer House history - along with some history of Vicksburg and the War Between the States. Our rooms were roomy and quite comfortable. The beds provided several nights of peaceful sleep. Hot water in the shower was quick and lasted throughout our showers. (And the inn was full for two of our nights). The breakfasts were delicious and well-portioned. I enjoyed having fresh fruit each morning! As for the extras: Doug's parents were visiting, so we were able to meet them. They were delightful and entertaining. I was sick one evening and into the next day. Doug was so kind to offer and prepare oatmeal & a tray of breads for me. It was so quiet during the day, I was able to sleep and recuperate. Baer House is in a great location. Though our parents are not as ambulatory as they once were, we could have walked most any place had we wanted to. Truly, we would have stayed longer at Baer House if our calendars had allowed. We will certainly recommend Baer House Inn to our family and friends & we will stay there again if the opportunity to visit Vicksburg arises.

We stayed in the Bonnie Blue room. It was very comfortable and quiet. Breakfast was a fruit parfait, shiird, and homemade sweet bread. Hosts were very friendly and we felt very much at home. Internet is fast and free. Room rates are very reasonable. And yes it is haunted, I'll just leave it at that.

We love staying here! Lucky to get the Pineapple room, bath across hall for our own use made room reasonable. California price would be double ! Doug the owner's mom Lois took care of us. She showed us every room available, and graciously gave us a thorough historical tour, which is a tour non-guests pay for. The breakfast was lovely, taking our diabetes into account, and wine hour was also nice. And Lois had great suggestions for food, entertainment and sightseeing. Neighborhood? Safe to have sheriffs across the street is how I look at it!

We stayed at the Baer House for 2 nights for our Anniversary. We loved the location. The only time we drove our car was to the Military Park- everything was walking distance! We also stayed during the annual River Fest, so there was a lot going on. We at first booked through a Bed and Breakfast website, but saved OVER HALF by booking directly through Doug at the Baer House. It was our first Bed and Breakfast, so we weren't sure what to expect, but we ended up loving it. The owners were friendly, but not overbearing! We knew we could ask them anything, but they gave us our space! We didn't feel the need to make small talk every time we saw them, which made it more relaxing. The breakfast is SO GOOD. It was different both mornings and very filling! We stayed in Scarlett which has it's own bathroom. There is also a balcony on the top floor, so you can sit out there if you want. The bed was HUGE, and we slept better than we have in a long time. We def. enjoyed our visit!
"Intriguing and quaint"
We stayed there 2 nights, as part of a bike tour. This is a small, owner-operated home, with lots of interesting history. The owners welcomed us when we arrived, and gave us some of the history of the house, but the best stories are from Doug, who has basically restored or renovated the entire home. He also knows a lot about the area, and is enthusiastic about living in Vicksburg. He has great suggestions on how to best tour and enjoy what the area has to offer. And for outside enthusiasts, ask him about those opportunities!

We spent two enjoyable nights at the Baer House in October 2012. Doug was not much in evidence, and we mostly related to his mother, visiting from Oregon to help, along with her husband. Our room, Scarlett, was comfortable and well appointed. Breakfast and the social hour snacks were good and we enjoyed talking to our fellow guests. The interesting Court House Museum was just along the road, and the historic city centre was within walking distance. The main attraction of Vicksburg is the National Military Park, and we appreciated the loan of the CD to guide us around it. We were surprised that the town centre was so run down, and if visiting again would probably stay near the park in one of the motels near the interstate and the park entrance. Nevertheless, Baer House is an interesting Victorian Building and we had a pleasant stay
