French Camp Academy’s Bed and Breakfast is one of the few B & Bs located adjacent to the Natchez Trace Parkway. In 1986, French Camp Academy moved two clerestory log cabins built between 1840 and 1870 from Eupora, Mississippi, to French Camp, Mississippi.
French Camp, originally known as the Frenchman’s Camp, was founded circa 1810 when Louis LeFleur and his family opened a tavern. His son, Greenwood LeFleur, changed the spelling of his last name to LeFlore. Folks traveling down the Natchez Trace can see how early American life was lived by walking or driving through French Camp Academy’s Historic District. A wooden boardwalk extends through the entire district from the Log Cabin Gift Shop to the Bed and Breakfast Inn. If you need to rest overnight, the Bed and Breakfast Inn provides a quiet respite.
It’s the perfect getaway for those who want to be off the beaten path and enjoy the beauty of the Natchez Trace Parkway. Known for its country comfort and bountiful breakfast, the B & B is just the place to find solace and rest. Make reservations online here.
We all know a lovely weekend stay wouldn’t be complete without delicious food. The Council House Café, owned and operated by French Camp Academy, offers guests a great place to eat, either inside the rustic dining area or while enjoying the view outside on the deck or on the lawn beneath the oaks. The restaurant offers generous-size sandwiches, homemade soups and crisp salads. Finish with either their famous Mississippi Mud Cake or bread pudding. Yum Yum!
