Why Liz and Bill Brister chose Jackson

We have lived in this neighborhood for 23 years. it is a vibrant, eclectic community of friends and families. Members of the Mississippi legislature know this house well because they return to it every year during the legislative session. The house has seen its share of cookouts on the deck and other gatherings. We even had a wedding at the house recently! If you need catering, tourism tips, anything at all....just ask and we will make it happen.

This house was prefect for us! There were 5 of us girls spending the weekend here and it worked out great! The owners, Bill and Liz, were very accommodating! Close by to great restaurants and shopping! We used Uber to get around and it was really reasonable! We would definitely recommend this house if you are staying in Jackson!!!!

Great Hosts!

  • 4 of 5

A 1950's home that has been upgraded. Beautiful wooden floors, modern appliances, 5 star bedding & linens, flat screen tv's, beautiful furniture and on arrival, the fridge stocked with soft drinks, water, local beers, juices and a great local coffee. The only thing I would have liked was at least one king bed. Bill & Liz are close by and very friendly host!

We have nothing but good things to share about out stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our time in this home couldn't have been any better. There were many nice touches to the home. The kitchen was newly renovated with granite countertops and new appliances. The breakfast nook overlooked a lovely spacious backyard with lots of birds and squirrels to watch. Nice touch that the hosts had provided bottled water, coffee, creamer, cokes, OJ and lemonade in the refrigerator. All the necessities were there to cook. New washer/dryer with detergent provided. Although an older home, it was immaculately cleaned and filled with many interesting antiques and books to look at. Great cozy family room with TV and many cable stations. Bed was super comfortable and home had plenty of good A/C and fans to keep us cool in hot/humid Jackson. We felt very comfortable and at home, and hope to stay there again whenever we are back in Jackson. It was simply a very lovely stay. Thank you so much, Liz and Bill!
