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. 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.
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
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.
Thank you for a perfect cabin to celebrate our thanksgiving and mini vacation. Great location and the house has everything you need for cooking and relaxing. Our family enjoyed the firepit, the welcome basket with smores fixings was a pleasant surprise. Beds are super comfortable, decor is beautiful. AAA+ we look forward to our next visit. With a son st MSU, its a blessing! thank you Winston family
The Winston's cabin is very nice and well done. It was so peaceful that it helped make an emotional time so much easier. Amy and Russell really know how to make you feel welcome.
Absolutely gorgeous property with plenty of room to roam and explore. The cabin was perfect and a unique experience for the kids. Our hosts welcomed us with an much appreciated Easter basket filled with goodies as we were visiting our oldest daughter (freshman at MSU) for Easter weekend. Conveniently located just minutes from campus and all the amenities of Starkville. We plan to make this our regular overnight spot when visiting MSU in future.
A wonderful place to stay for a quiet retreat or a visit to MS State! We LOVED everything about it! Clean, comfortable...everything you need is there. We'll definitely be back. The owners responded to our questions immediately and were very accommodating.
Russell was a pleasure to work with. He was prompt and professional. He made everything about booking and the stay easy as could be. When we arrived we were shocked.. at how perfect the cabin was. The welcome card and the basket were awesome touches. As a frequent VRBO user I can say that this was the best experience to date!!! Thanks Russell and Fam!
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.
