SECLUDED GETAWAY IN MISSISSIPPI NEAR NATCHEZ, MS

Natchez Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Adirondack style treehouse by 99,000 acre national forest.

Enjoy bird songs and starry nights in our remote location. We have a wrap around porch and a sleeping loft in our treehouse cabin with a full kitchen and bath. No phone, no TV, and no internet give our guests a true getaway.

There are miles of hiking trails, rural Forest Service roads for mountain bike rides, a cool spring fed creek for picnics on the sand bars and a grill for outdoor cookouts.

Near the Forest Retreat is a large stocked lake and farther away is a championship golf course if you would like to leave the seclusion of our property. We provide all the linens but you bring your food to prepare in our fully modern kitchen.

Interior is furnished with rustic Adirondack furniture from the original New York state locations that popularized this return to nature movement a hundred years ago.

Bess Carrick Owner, Tina Jackson Reservations Manager purchased this cabin in 1994

Why Bess Carrick Owner, Tina Jackson Reservations Manager chose Natchez

Seeking a personal retreat and hearing dozens of her friends describe how much they would enjoy a true getaway where no one could possibly disturb them Carrick bought a rustic piece of property on the edge of the Homochitto National Forest in the mid 1990s. Envisioning a space where nature lovers, artists, writers, and those seeking tranquility could find a peaceful retreat she began with her friend and noted antiquarian, Don Didier, to design the houses on the property. Didier began to find the furnishings during his buying trips for his antique store on Magazine St. Finally after years of collecting, the houses were furnished with objects that resemble the exterior environment, rustic chairs and tables made with willow and other soft woods. Didier and Carrick created the cabin designs and Didier added three hipped roofs, wood burning stoves, and glass fronts and lofts to complete the comfort and appeal of the houses.

You will find the cabin displayed on this listing to provide you the kind of vacation and the rest you need to restore your priorities to the right place - a place where your focus will be on what really matters.

What makes this cabin unique

The house is on stilts and when guests sit on the front porch they are in the mid story of the trees in the forest and the natural beauty of the old forest surrounds you. The house has a wrap around porch, and views of the forest and wildlife are 360 when staying at the Forest Retreat. The house is accessed at the rear by stepping from the top of the ridge onto the wrap around porch, so there are no steps to climb. There is a staircase that leads to the sleeping loft and if guests would like to sleep in the great room they may. The sleeping loft is private and has a queen size Serta bed.

The Forest Retreat is the most humble place I've visited in my entire life. I enjoyed looking at the decor inside of the cabin, made with deer antler pieces. The ceilings resemble leaves of trees and all furniture are made therof. My most favorite part of the stay was the outside tub to bathe in. Even though my fiance, Herbert, was uneasy, he guarded me as I enjoyed my bath.
I visited the cabin at a time of loss, my aunt Jessica, died. I took to the Forest for peace because I felt her spirit was with me. It was only us and nature, no phones, internet, television, etc., which I didn't understand how much we depended on these items until they were unaccesible.
All that is needed for a visit to the Forest are your personal ammenities and food. All utensils, towels, stove, refrigerator, seasonings, etc., are available for use. I barbequed, fished, walked the trail, walked and waded in the creek, searched and followed wildlife tracks, and of course took all the photographs I could.
I would definitley recommend this getaway to others and will revisit soon myself.
