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 . I am married and have five children. We love spending family time together, or with friends, at our lake getaway all year round.
Our family stayed at the property between Christmas and New Year, and it more than met our expectations. We had a wonderful time. The house has a large covered porch with lots of room, as well as a screened in section with direct access from the house. Our older grandchildren enjoyed the separate area upstairs where they played games, watched TV and entertained themselves. The second deck of the pier is ideal for panoramic views of the lake and sunbathing. With room for jet skis, boats and kayaks, it is a perfect place to enjoy the lake. The house was beautifully arranged and the open floor plan allowed us to enjoy cooking and visiting. Because of the winter season, we knew we would not utilize all of the amenities. The rain and cold weather did not damper our experience at all. We would highly recommend this property, and would love to revisit during the summer to fully appreciate all it offers. As first time VRBO customers, we did not know what to expect. The owner made the experience absolutely exceptional!! The property was great, and her communication and accessibility were outstanding. It was fantastic.
Great camp. Close to everything with a great set up.
Wonderful home for our group which included 5 children (2-13) who really enjoyed swimming and jumping from the double deck, paddling in the kayak that was provided, and catching fish from the pier. The home is clean and comfortably decorated and has a very well equipped kitchen that met all our needs. We had coffee in the mornings watching the sunrise and a homemade ice cream party one evening all from the great porch with lots of seating overlooking the lake. There were beds to spare and they were comfortable. Thanks Stephanie for making your property available and for being so helpful. We highly recommend this property and we'll definitely be booking again for our reunion next year!
