Beautiful and comfortable home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed the home. It’s so beautiful and very comfortable. We felt right at home and had everything we needed for graduation weekend with our family. Every detail is covered by the owners and the house was spotless. The location to town and the university is spectacular - both within walking distance. I wish i knew about the home for all of the years our daughter was in school at Ole Miss.

Beautifully restored cottage in downtown Oxford

  • 5 of 5

This rental home is incredible! Beautifully designed, we noted every detail and had the most wonderful visit with our family. Lois literally thought of everything a renter would need when prepping this home.

We walked back and forth from the square multiple times and enjoyed early mornings on the porch with our kids. We can’t wait to return next year.

Amazing home and great location

  • 5 of 5

We were visiting Ole Miss and stayed here because of the close proximity to campus and the square. The house was awesome, very clean and super cozy and comfortable. I highly recommend it.
