Very quaint, cozy, and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this home. It was nicely furnished and very clean. The bed was so very comfortable and I had a great nights sleep. Our family of 6 stayed there and our hosts were great! It was during Hurricane Harvey and they really worked with us as our dates were changing daily due to the storm. The kitchen was very well furnished and close to grocery stores and other restaurants. Specifically it was close to Belhaven University where we were taking our daughter. Loved it and hope to stay there again!

Amazing Stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the property July 22 - Aug 1. The house was exactly as pictured. Liz and Bill, the owners, are very nice and responded quickly to my questions. They left sooo many welcoming snacks and supplies for our use. We arrived later than planned and the keys were left on the kitchen counter for us. We had more than enough room for my family of 6 and our dog. Information such as local restaurants, grocery stores, area attractions, and the like were listed on the website. To say we enjoyed ourselves would be an understatement!! The house was all we imagined and more. Do not hesitate to rent this home!! It's beautiful, spacious, centrally located to EVERYTHING. And if you're traveling with your pet, the yard is HUGE and fenced in. We have already planned to rent again for our next visit!!! Thank you, Liz and Bill for your wonderful hospitality!!

Very quaint little house in a super nice and quiet neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

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!
