The history of antebellum plantations comes alive in Cedar Grove. At one time a 900-acre working plantation surrounded by others of the same, Cedar Grove is now a bed & breakfast with stories to tell. The main house looks just as it did when Absalom and his wife, Clarissa, lived there.
The pool-side guest rooms in the L-shaped building are the 19th century sewing room, infirmary, ironing room and school house. All the buildings on the property are historic. One of the rooms still holds the original kitchen fireplace where much of the food for the Sharp family was prepared. The guest rooms in the L Shaped building have a swimming pool just outside the door!
On your walks of the property, you may discover the ancient family cemetery. The original owner, Absalom Sharp, and much of his family is buried there.
Nature trails, forest, ponds, and fields now surround Cedar Grove instead of the many acres of cotton. Solitude is a guarantee, and historic Natchez is just a few minutes' drive away. But if it's history you're looking for, you'll find it right here, at Cedar Grove.
By 1830, Absalom Sharp had acquired several plots of land that came together to form Cedar Grove Plantation.
At one time Absalom held 900 acres of cotton fields and farm land. Now a nature trail winds through the wooded area behind Cedar Grove.
The area is home to an abundance of wildlife, some of which you might spot as you walk the trails. From the back of the main house it's a short walk to the cypress-lined pond.
The view from the pier is breathtaking. Bring your own fishing pole, There are 6 ponds to fish in! However, we do not carry live bait.
The Family Cemetery
After a short walk, you'll come to the old family cemetery. Absalom Sharp, the original owner of Cedar Grove, is buried here, as is his wife, Clarissa, her father, Joseph Thomas, and her mother, Sarah. Absalom and Clarissa had 3 children, all boys who died at early ages. Thomas, Edward, and Levy are also buried there at Cedar Grove.
Walk past the cemetery and the trail will offer several different directions. Don't worry, you will eventually circle back around to the house. We offer a grounds tour on our cart to any of our guest interested in riding instead of walking.
Along the grounds you will find several swings for relaxation, and an area for a game of Horse Shoes.
Just get away... Enjoy the outdoors!
