About Tom and Carol Sharpe

We are a retired and very active couple, who love Oxford and Ole Miss and want our guests to have a wonderful experience while visiting Oxford. Tom was a research professor at Ole Miss for 25 years; Carol was in small business in Columbia, Missouri before Tom brought her down to the little bit of heaven known as Oxford. We have grown children, an elderly cat, and a wonderful Bassett Hound who loves every living person and thing on this earth.

Tom and Carol Sharpe purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Tom and Carol Sharpe chose Oxford

We built this guest quarters in 2013 primarily for visits of family and friends. It lives in a Historic Preservation District and matches the architecture of the main house, which was built in 1896. We think you will find it to be very charming.

What makes this apartment unique

The guest quarters are located just 3 blocks from the Oxford Square, which bustles with shopping, restaurants and night life. It is located on a second story and has a marvelous view of the old, heavily wooded neighborhood. It features an open living room/kitchen/dining area with vaulted ceilings and hardwood (bamboo) floors, and has a Jacuzzi tub in the bathroom. The apartment is flooded with natural light during the day and provides privacy at night.

Fantastic location and great ameneties

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in Tom and Carol's guest quarters for a week while visiting the campus. What a great spot with very gracious hosts (and an awesome dog Winston)! The kitchen is spacious with new LG appliances, and I was greeted with a bag of local coffee and a bottle of wine. The full-size washer and dryer certainly made light travel easier. The location is superb with less than 5 minutes walk to the Square. The guest quarters are located over the garage of the owners and it new construction in the last 5 years. Their price is better than a hotel, and you get so much more room, with guaranteed quiet. I will definitely be back!! Thank you, Tom, Carol and Winston!

A little Gem in Oxford

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay so much, we can't wait to come back and visit our son again at Ole Miss. The location was prime, just blocks from the Square. It was up to date and comfortable and we enjoyed ourselves thoroughly! We will definitely try and stay there again.

Location

The Oxford Square features up-scale shopping, an extremely vibrant music scene, the finest bookstore in the galaxy, a wide variety of restaurants and exciting night-life. Thursday evenings during its season, don't miss Thacker Mountain Radio--a real gem of Oxford. The University Museums contains an astounding collection of Greek and Roman antiquity, art of the South, and regular special exhibits. And if you have not been to Rowan Oak--William Faulkner's home--it is a must see!
