Charming cottage close to campus

We had a lovely stay at Whimsey Cottage. It is well appointed and has everything you could possibly need. We didn’t get to meet Honey & Ron, but they were very helpful and very kind with our questions via text. We look forward to our next stay at Whimsey Cottage.

Very nice place located close to Ole Miss. Would definitely stay here again.

  • 4 of 5

A well done property and experience. Honey and Ron could not be nicer made the whole process easy to manage. Everything was as advertised. Even with our 18 year old son, the one bedroom/one bath was not a problem. Nice living area with plenty of room. Honey and Ron did a great job of making it welcoming to our family by adding a several nice touches like a few water bottles in the refrigerator and a couple of snacks for our son. The property was very clean and had all the necessary items for a weekend stay. Located a few miles from the Ole Miss campus (near the golf course) but easy to get to the Square and University.

Happy to have found this property and, as mentioned, would stay here again.
