The cottage was in a perfect location. It's very private, yet close to everything Natchez has to offer. The owners were welcoming and even had snacks and drinks ready for us when we got there. We can't wait to come back for a longer stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the note and the nice review. Glad you all enjoyed your stay and hope that you will make it back down this way. Wish I had gotten the opportunity to meet your daughters also. My goodness you all left the cottage neat as a pin! I love neat renters and appreciate your help.....that certainly wasn't necessary! Keep us on your list if you decide to head south again in the future. Britton Gammill The Chicken Coop Cottage

The Chicken Coop - awesome

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay at the Chicken Coop. Home baked goodies were a really nice treat..even the special cake for my husbands birthday. Loved the peace and quiet but close proximity to all. The only thing that could have made our stay even better was ottoman or stool to put up your feet (inside and out.) After a lot of walking, that would have been ideal. Dogs were very friendly and even came visiting one morning as we had our morning coffee on the front porch. Thanks Britton and Jimmy! Great getaway for us and would do it again!

Owner's Response: Can't thank you enough for your sweet note and my goodies and your nice review. But, the greatest gift of all was coming back from a week with the grandkids at the beach and finding the Chicken Coop left SO neat and clean. I do all the cleaning myself so it is always a welcome gift to find it in such good shape, especially after spending a active week with four active kids. Tell the birthday boy that you are a keeper! Glad you had a good time and you know you are welcome to return and we hope that you will. Enjoyed meeting you all. Britton Gammill The Chicken Coop Cottage

Very peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here as a little getaway from kids and careers. We had never been to Natchez but loved the idea of being in a historic town. Neither the town nor the cottage disappointed us!!! The cottage was so peaceful and secluded, yet close to downtown. The Gamills were the ultimate hosts!!! The cottage was warm and inviting and they knew all the best places to eat and visit!!! Fat Mama's Tamales was the highlight of our stay....we ate there three times!!! My husband and I are already planning our next trip...we can't wait!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the nice review and I was so glad to read that you all had gone to Fat Mama's three times and enjoyed the tamales also. I do all of the cleaning myself at the Chicken Coop and it is ALWAYS such a nice treat to find it left so orderly and neat. It was a pleasure meeting both of you and we would love to have you back at any time. Best of luck with your tiny house plans also. Britton Gammill The Chicken Coop Cottage

True Southern Hospitality!

  • 5 of 5

Wow. Was absolutely blown away by our stay at The Chicken Coop on so many levels. First of all, working with Britton and her husband Jimmy was a pleasure. I had a lot of questions leading up to my stay, and Britton was always happy to get back with all my inquiries. She even waited up for us the night we arrived as we were running late and she knew I was nervous about getting lost. When we got to the property she was happy to show us around despite our late arrival. It is not often that a place you rent on VRBO looks BETTER in person than it does in photos, but this place really does. It is just darling with so many little details and added touches that make it feel cozy while still managing to feel updated, clean and organized. I am a neat freak and this place definitely exceeded my standards. She had homemade baked goods out for us, was there if ever we needed anything, but kept to herself as well. She knows everything you would need to know about Natchez, and has plenty of info at the property to browse through or you can just give her a call and ask if you prefer that. The grounds were lovely, peaceful and quiet with song birds chirping in the morning, and we were lucky enough to see deer one late afternoon crossing through the meadow out back. Her furry friends are adorable as well if you feel like visiting, but they also like to keep to themselves if you don't have much interest in them. My mom and I had the most amazing time on our short stay there, we will definitely be back for a longer visit the next time around. Thank you Britton and Jimmy for showing us what Southern Hospitality is really all about!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the very special review. We really appreciate your taking the time to write the review, for leaving the house so neat, and for being so complimentary of your stay in Natchez. So glad that the trip was everything that you all wanted it to be and certainly hope that we have the opportunity to have you two stay with us again. We are fortunate to really have a good location as far as being convenient and we love having the big yard as you know we love animals of every kind. You can't imagine how many deer we have seen lately....mamas and babies! Glad all went well coming and going for you all and look forward to a return visit from you experienced travelers whenever you want to return.

Delightful cottage

  • 5 of 5

The owners made us feel very welcome, and left snacks for us.The cottage was very comfortable, and we enjoyed seeing all the pictures of the chickens. Would recommend The Chicken Coop to travelers who visit Natchez

Owner's Response: Thank you all for staying with us at the Chicken Coop and hope you all enjoyed your visit to Natchez. I imagine that it seemed like a sleepy little town after coming from the big city.....I also think that is why we have as many tourists as we do. They always say the grass is greener on the other side. We appreciate the nice review and would love to have you all return at any time.

The Chicken Coop Cottage could not have been better. The owners, Jimmy & Britton Gammill were the best hosts ever. They made us feel welcome the minute we arrived. The cottage is adorable and immaculate. There was fresh baked goodies and fresh lemonade waiting for us to enjoy. The peace and quiet at the cottage was wonderful and the town of Natchez was a fun place to visit. We can't wait until we can return.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the nice review. We enjoyed meeting the two of you and hope to see you all back in Natchez sooner than later. Tell your husband that Peanut Butter doesn't have anyone to talk to! Also I wanted you to know that I really appreciated your leaving the Coop so neat and clean. You are welcome back whenever you two want to slip away for another quiet week-end. Thanks again for staying with us. Britton Gammill The Chicken Coop Cottage
