Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was wonderful. Ms Catherine had everything ready when we arrived. The home is beautiful and has everything you need to enjoy your stay. She had even stocked the fridge with food for us. There are books to read, tv to watch, fast internet speeds, plenty outdoor seats, a gas fire pit, a gas grill, fishing tackle and a john boat. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Owner's Response: We had 4 ladies (sisters) staying with us, they were wonderful guests. It was so nice to see them enjoying each other also to see them enjoying what our home had to offer, they used it to the fullest extent. I hope these ladies return, they took great care of our property and so so friendly. Anyone hosting them in the future are in for a treat.

Owner's Response: I loved these 3 ladies from Arkansas and Florida, they met for a girls weekend, they enjoyed their stay and it was so nice to see them use our home to it's fullest by fishing from the deck, sitting round the fire pit and then watching movies. They visited our local flea market (thank you ladies for the gift) I love it , it's so me! Thank you also for leaving our home in such good order Anyone having the opportunity to rent to these ladies are in for a treat, I would recommend them 100% .

Unique home with lots of charm!!!

  • 4 of 5

Booked at the last second when we decided to take a few days to just hang out. House was clean and inviting. Owner was very accommodating to our travel plans. House is much bigger than you think at first.

Really enjoyed the grill, sitting on the deck at night and listening to the frogs, and just relaxing.

The house is located in a small community built around a few lakes. Area was quiet and there were no issues with neighbors. Very safe area with a large grocery only 10 min away.

Quaint, quiet and relaxing -- friendly owners!

  • 4 of 5

Catherine & Ian made a wonderful impression upon meeting them. They gave us a brief walk-thru of the house so we knew where everything was and felt comfortable before they departed. The house was clean, nicely decorated, well laid out and in a very quiet area. We truly enjoyed our stay with them and would recommend utilizing their home as a vacation or getaway to anyone. My husband and daughter took the jon boat out on the lake and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The front porch is an amazing place to sit, unwind and watch nature all around you. We were visited by cardinals, squirrels and hummingbirds; it was beautiful.

Owner's Response: Steven and Jennifer with their daughter Alexis were super guests, they were very friendly and appreciated our home. They traveled some but mainly relaxed and enjoyed the lake to fish. Our home was left so tidy that you would never have guessed anyone had stayed there. I would certainly recommend this family to anyone about to let their property to Steve and Jennifer .

Southern Hospitality at it's BEST with a quiet, peaceful environment!

  • 5 of 5

Little did I know when I chose this location for a Birthday Surprise for my husband, just how wonderful it would be!! We were met with smiles and welcomes from Ian and Catherine. Following a brief tour and introductory chat we were left to spend the most serene and restful weekend we have had in such a long time. The home was stocked with complimentary amenities which included breakfast items to toiletry items. It indeed was "home (comfortable and cozy) away from home (chores and responsibilities)"! It is only about 2 hours from our home, so it is very convenient and will be returning!! Thank you again Ian and Catherine!!!

Lovely, peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

Quiet and comfortable, rural setting and lovely house. The owners take pride in the house and lovely garden, and we had a great stay. This was a convenient base for visits to Jackson and to Vicksburg.

Owner's Response: James and Kathleen were so sweet, they were a very quiet couple looking for a quiet peaceful stay, Kathleen liked to write and James would go and get photographs for her. They left our home in great shape , I would recommend them to any host and hope one day they will return here.
