About Marjorie M

Born and raised in the Miss-Lou area and well respected in the community. I also operate an antebellum bed and breakfast in Natchez, MS which has been in my family since 1880. We appreciate you and your family taking care of our Lake Cottage and I am just a phone call away if you need us.

Marjorie M purchased this cottage in 1972

Why Marjorie M chose Mississippi

Because it's a Lake Cottage that has a huge lot for family's to enjoy! Whether it's fishing, swimming, skiing, or cook-outs and volleyball, whatever your needs, it's a great retreat!

What makes this cottage unique

I love the big shaded lot and the neighbors who have been there as long as me! Good people and a good place to stay! Not noisy as some of the newer development homes on the lake.

Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Great location if you are wanting to be away from the noise and all the ski boats. My wife and I with our two pre-teen children and our pet, had booked this cottage about 3 months prior to arrival. It was a great find! We were close enough to the town of Ferriday about 15 minutes if we needed anything, and there is a good restaurant on Lake St. John also called Ducks Nest II. We stayed almost a full week and had kind of wish we would have stayed longer. It's a quiet area on a nice size lot with shade and sun, yet close to other things if you need to run up to the boat launch or gas station nearby. Nothing new and fancy, but clean and enjoyable just what you would expect from an older type Lake Cottage home that has had a few updates. I like the large sun deck they have as well as the covered boat house for storing my fishing boat. The owners are pleasant to work with and made the check-in process very easy for us. Caught some nice Catfish, Brim and Crappie off the pier too. The house provided the conveniences of home. This is our third time to stay here, and we will be return again.

Nice and Clean Quiet Area

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this lake cottage for three nights. It was comfortable, clean and cozy. We had a boat for going out on the lake that we brought up with us, and the boat ramp is just a little ways down from the lake cottage at a nearby gas station. Quiet area, and a good amount of fish off the pier we caught. The owners are really nice people and very nice to work with. They did not even mind that we had a small dog with us. I plan on returning again soon.

Relaxing escape!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed 5 nights in June with our three children. As the description states, it truly is a big lot and not at a busy end of the lake. Plenty of room for 6 people without stepping on top of each other. Having the pier was nice for fishing and swimming off of. The owners are so very nice and helpful. They went out of their way to make sure we had the basic comforts of home. Highly recommended.
