Overview

About the property

3 Bedroom 2 Bath Cabin with game room on 8 Wooded Acres

Awakening Spirit Retreat is a 3 Bedroom 2 Bath cabin that is located on 8 wooded acres that are yours to explore and hike during your stay. The cabin has a separate garage that has been closed in that is home to Awakening Spirit Massage Therapy and Hypnosis Monday through Friday. The entire cabin was originally used for the business until we closed off the garage so that we could live there during the construction of our home. Our new home is now complete and we wanted to share the simplicity and tranquility that we found while our family stayed in the cabin. The cabin has a covered front porch perfect for drinking your coffee and watching the wildlife as you wake up in the morning, an open back porch with plenty of seating, and a fire pit that is perfect for enjoying the sunset and a glass of wine. There is a game room in a separate building that has a dart board, pool table, and separate refrigerator. The cabin is equipped with a full kitchen that has most of the basic utensils you will need, and a charcoal grill on the back porch. It has a central heat and A/C unit, as well as a wood burning fireplace with wood provided. The main bedroom has a queen size bed and adjoins a full bathroom. The second bedroom has a full size bed, and the third bedroom has a queen size bed with a twin bunk above.

About Russell Winston

Amy and I were both born and raised here in Starkville, MS. We both attended high school at Starkville schools, then continued our education at Mississippi State. After graduating, I began my career in the automotive collision repair industry, and Amy attended The Cayce Reilly School of Massotherapy in Virginia Beach, VA. Amy has been self employed as a massage therapist for 15 years, and I now own Advanced Collision Repair in Starkville. We have 3 young children, and love to travel and discover new places. We enjoy staying in cabins and houses that we find on VRBO, and we are excited to have the opportunity to share our retreat with others.

Russell Winston purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Russell Winston chose Mississippi

The land the cabin is on first belonged to my grandfather. He sectioned off the 8 acres and gave it to his sister so she could have a place to build outside of town to get away. Louise and Kenneth Pyron built the cabin on the property in 1968 where Louise would come to paint and read, and Kenneth would come to work on woodworking projects in the adjacent shop. When Louise and Kenneth passed away the cabin went through several hands, until 2010 when Amy and I had the chance to purchase it to reclaim and restore it for what the property was originally intended. We love this property and are excited to share this peaceful retreat with others.

Wedding weekend

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect location to spend time with my Mom and adult children before my wedding. The Winstons left a note welcoming us. That set the tone for the whole visit. I felt like I was staying at a home of close friends not a rental property. Russell checked to make sure we had everything we needed. We enjoyed the back deck, the view was lovely, the charcoal grill worked great for a cookout. The pictures do not do the cabin justice. The décor was so homey. It was beautiful and peaceful. The location was private but close enough to town. I hope to stay here again in the future!

Did not disappoint

Great property, clean, with all the comforts of home. Very close to campus and town, while still letting you feel secluded in the country.

We drove into Starkville for a wedding and was thrilled to have the opportunity to stay at this cabin! It was well furnished and on a beautiful plot of land. The owners couldn't have been more gracious and ensured the whole stay was tremendous! Thanks and we'll see you next time!

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in this cabin in the woods. It was a great place to celebrate our daughter's graduation. The back deck was a wonderful place to eat and we did use the fire pit. The cabin was cozy and well stocked. We will definitely would stay there, again.

Location

Nearest Airport
15 Miles
Golden Triangle Airport
Car: necessary

Our cabin is located on 8 wooded acres, and is a perfect setting for a weekend of relaxation. We are located 3 miles from the campus of Mississippi State University, and 3 miles from the Mississippi Horse Park. We are just far enough out of town to not see another person if you like, but still close enough to be in the middle of any events that Starkville has to offer with in 5 minutes.
