Sophisticated, timeless and the perfect dose of Southern charm is how we describe Chancellor’s House in Oxford, Mississippi. From the moment you step inside, you’re instantly impressed with grand, luxurious details such as the timeless chandeliers, fresh flowers and inviting interiors, as well as the warm welcome you receive during check-in. One little detail we absolutely adored was the silver tray with fragrances for him or her in the concierge area. Whether you’re coming or going, pick a fragrance of your choice, spray a little here and there and be on your way while smelling ‘scent’sational.
The rooms and suites continue the luxurious ambiance. If you stay in one of the 13 suites, you’ll be swept away with the elegance of the living space where you can relax and unwind, as well as the bedroom with inviting interiors and plush bedding. Beautiful, private balconies add another charming space to enjoy with quaint views of the Oxford Square. When it comes to the guest rooms, the grandeur continues and no attention to detail has been spared. While there are a number of things we adore and admire in the guest rooms, there’s no question what our favorite part is . . . the freestanding cast iron tub. Not only is it visually a gorgeous part of the space itself, it’s an absolute delight to start or end your day soaking in a stately style. Once you’re relaxed and rejuvenated, throw on a signature CH robe and comfy slippers and you’re certainly going to feel like a king or queen! And don’t forget that you can always call your butler who will assist with anything your heart desires!
