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, most with private bathrooms. Most rooms are on the second floor.

A full breakfast is served each morning in the ballroom.

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.

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.
