Welcome to Baer House Inn Bed and Breakfast!

The Inn is a large Victorian mansion built in 1870 with personalized service for our limited number of guests.  Our 7 guest rooms are all located in the main house and are tastefully furnished with period antiques, king & queen sized beds and private bathrooms.

A full breakfast is served each morning in the ballroom and a social hour is held each evening with wine and snacks.

We are located in the heart of historic Vicksburg, within walking distance to museums, antique shopping, historic Washington Street, restaurants and the National Military Park.

We have packages for weekday and weekend getaways that include romance, history, golf or shopping.  Let us know what your interests are and we can tailor a package for you.  We can also accommodate you with specialty private candlelight dinners at the mansion for anniversaries, honeymoons, birthdays or other special events.

Arrive as strangers, depart as friends!     


Miss Leona Blume left her Louisiana family at age 20 and moved to Vicksburg during Reconstruction, against the wishes of her parents.

She purchased a Greek Revival home badly damaged by the Siege of Vicksburg and redesigned it into an innovative Eastlake home prior to her marriage to Jewish merchant Lazrus Baer.

Baer House captures the story and spirit of this remarkable woman and her impact on Vicksburg and its history.
