This is truly a 'retreat' and wi-fi is not available; free public wi-fi access is about a 10-minute drive away in Lake Bruin State Park or the cute restaurant at the Lake Bruin Inn and Grocery.
Nothing beats coffee on the cozy screen porch, watching the sunrise over the lake. It's a romantic getaway for couples, a peaceful haven for writers and other creatives, and an outdoor recreation for families looking to spend some time together (when you tire of fishing, floating, sunning and swimming, board games, including Cranium, are on-site!)
For the history buff, the house is 45-minutes from the site of the Civil War battleground at Vicksburg. It's also 45 minutes from historic Natchez, MS, whose riverside downtown is filled with antebellum homes open for tours. Even closer is Winter Quarters, one of the few surviving plantation homes, where General Lee spent a winter with his troops.
Nearby, Lake Bruin State Park offers free public wi-fi, a beach, campground, and boat launch. The Lake Bruin Country Club offers golf, tennis, and a pool. Ken's Corner, the Lake Bruin Grocery, and the Lake Bruin Inn offer delicious home cooked meals and Southern favorites.
The Lake is situated between two towns- Newellton and St.Joseph - which provide access to bars, churches, a full-sized grocery store, and other amenities.
You will be happiest in this rural getaway if you bring your own car. Gas is available in Newellton and St. Joseph at Ken's Corner Grocery.

I live in Monroe Louisiana. There are seven in our family and we have enjoyed our lake escape year-round for almost 14 years. We have only recently put it on the rental market and on occasion, when the lake house is not available, it might just be because we are there ourselves!
