"If you want the true and proper Natchez experience, lie, cheat and steal (or beg!) to get a room at the Glenfield Plantation." Apparently, this B & B's reputation precedes itself all the way to Southern California. So I made the call and, as luck would have it, they had one room available." Let me sum up my experience there in one word: AMAZING! ... writer with Discovery Channel, tripadvisor review
"We had the best stay at the Glenfield plantation. The host is the most charming woman, who told us stories about her house, her family, Natchez and the region, and made everything possible to make us happy. The house has a real charm and soul and is comfortable, the two dogs certainly don't bark, and the garden and property were superb. When we were there in February it was all frozen and totally enchanting" ... Vero Dupont, NY, tripadvisor review

Oh, If These Walls Could Talk --- The Lesson I Learned At A Bed and Breakfast
For the past three days, Carlene and I have been in Natchez, MS where she attended a School Nurse Conference and Seminar. While we were there, we stayed in a local bed and breakfast called "The Glenfield Plantation."
It is an old plantation home built in two different periods; Spanish and English Gothic 1789-1845. Both sections of the old home are still in their original state. We enjoyed the room and wondered how ma...ny people slept here and what kind of business was conducted in this very place.
But perhaps what we enjoyed the most was Ms. Marjorie Meng, the owner. Using southern vernacular, I would describe her as a "hoot!" She was so friendly and accommodating. She made us feel so welcome as though we were part of her family.
Ms. Margorie took us on a tour of the plantation house that's been in her family for seven generations. We could sense her
reminiscing about her childhood as she showed us the history of the old house.
I was asking her about some plants that were along a slope just outside the house. She wanted me to get a shovel and dig some up to take home with us. She said, "I wish you would, I'd love for you to take some home with you." I've never heard a hotel manager say, "Get you a shovel and dig some of our plants up and take home with you!"
Our experience here reminded me of a time when families went out of their way to accommodate you no matter what the need.
It reminded me of when every family met together on Sundays to eat lunch or just visit.
It reminded me of a time when people were always willing to share what they had; even if they didn't have much.
Today, it's all about me, me, me and what you can do for me.
Today, we're too busy to relax and take time to know our neighbors.
Today, we don't care if anyone visits us, because it would mean we would have to stop what we're doing!
I learned a valuable lesson about past family and community life at The Glenfield Plantation. Thank you Ms. Marjorie Meng.
BELIEVER, how busy is your life today?
Are you satisfied with how much time you and your immediate family spend together?
Are you satisfied with how much time you and your extended family spend together?
Long gone are the days when generations of families lived in the same house. Long gone are the days of regular family get-togethers.
You've heard the saying, "If these walls could talk!"
This old house would have plenty to say.
If the walls could talk in our homes, what do you suppose they would say?
What would the walls have to say about the love shared in that home?
What would the walls have to say about arguing and fights that took place in that home?
What would the walls have to say about what kind of life was experienced in that home?
What would the walls have to say about how much time was given to God's Word and prayer in that home?
Oh, if these walls could talk --- The lessons I learned in a bed and breakfast.
Thanks again for the wonderful show of hospitality!
