Fantastic! Very comfortable and conveniently located.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at "The Land Where The Blues Began". We stayed 4 nights and found the cottage very comfortable. The beds were comfy and all the linen pristine. The kitchen is well fitted out and the washing machine and dryer work well. The air-conditioning works very well also. The owners were great to deal with and communicated promptly. Would recommend it to anyone!

A GREAT LITTLE HOME IN CLARKSDALE MISSISSIPPI. WONDERFUL STAY. NICE AND HELPFUL OWNERS

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this nice little home in Clarksdale, Miss. Upon arrival, we found the home clean and staged like any expensive hotel rooms we have stayed at in the country. The location is perfect if you are a blues music lover. You can walk to the Ground Zero and Red's Night Clubs if you have no transportation. All other entertainment is close by. There are many things to do in Clarksdale and several very good restaurants to enjoy good food during our stay. We LOVE this town. The people are so friendly. Can not wait to return to this lovely home.

Terrific Location & Great House

  • 5 of 5

Shirley was a wonderful host, providing lots of suggestions & advice before we arrived, & then responding promptly when we landed in Clarksdale. As promised, the house is in a great location, a very short walk into the downtown with a nice, big yard (perfect for our handicapped dog) facing the river. The house has everything you need for a delightful stay. The kitchen is well-appointed; there are plenty of clean towels & extra bedding; and the master bed in front is very comfortable. There are even a few CDs & interesting art. We extended our stay & still wish we could have stayed even longer. This is a wonderful find!

Clarksdale is mecca for the blues lovers. Incredible music, juke joints, blues festivals and jams happening throughout the week. Follow the blues trail to the historic sights like the Stovall plantation where Muddy Waters grew up, the Hopson Plantation and Sonny Boy Williamson's II gravesite. Don't miss the Delta Blues Museum. Take a guided canoe trip on the Mississippi and fish for catfish. Try out BBQ and southern cooking at the local restaurants.
