About the Owners: Linda Lewis Raney wears many hats. She is a Real Estate Agent, caretaker of 10 horses, 4 dogs & 4 cats, CHA certified teacher of Beginners Horseback riding, antique booth entrepreneur, Guest House Manager & Reservation Clerk,.
Hollaman (Holly) M. Raney is a practicing Attorney by day and a wanna-be Farmer/Maintenance Man by night. He is plenty old enough to retire but as the father of five daughters (the last one just left for college), we don't hold out much hope for that.
Why the Owner Chose Oxford:
We visited friends on Hopewell Road 15 years ago. We loved it out here so much, we bought our property and moved here within four months. Holly commuted back to Jackson Miss for 9 months before he secured employment in Memphis. This picturesque, quintessential country lane started our love affair with living in 'The Country'. Our forests, trails, wildlife, horses, beautiful home and proximity to Oxford make life complete.
The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse: We enjoy all the advantages of the magnificent hamlet of Oxford yet are able to retreat from the hustle and bustle of 'The Little Easy' at our country home.
Breakfast Bar includes small fridge for your travel foods & beverages, toaster and coffee pot. Ice bucket filled each afternoon. Shared Pool: Request your beach towels to hang out by beautiful pool.

Linda & Holly,

We have stayed here twice this fall and hope to come back many more times. The area is peaceful, the rooms are clean and fresh, and the beds are wonderfully comfortable. It is not in town but Olemiss is an easy quick drive away, and in many ways it's nice to be a little removed from the hustle and bustle. Linda and Hollie are lovely accommodating hosts and have created a relaxing and restful retreat. Thank you.
This is a beautiful spot, close to the town, with wonderful southern hospitality. Cannot recommend it enough -
This is by far the best B&B we've happened upon. We visited our granddaughter, a freshman at Ole Miss, and stayed here. Our mid-sized dog, Dexter, had the best time ever, running and playing with the beagles and German Shepherd resident dogs. Dex didn't have to be on leash all weekend and was sad when we got home. So were we. The 2-BR cottage was beautifully decorated, near the pool, we used the grill, etc.
The owners are so nice, accommodating, and great advocates of Oxford. We will go back when we can!
My boyfriend and I decided to stay in Oxford for 4 days during the course of a 3 week roadtrip. The rental is about 7ish miles from historical downtown Oxford and is truly a beautiful property. The space is as cute as a button and immediately makes you feel right at home. It is good to note that the apartment has no kitchen. There is a mini fridge/toaster/coffee maker and the property owners graciously leave fruits, yogurt, cereal, milk, other various treats, and hardboiled eggs for your breakfasting pleasure. It is also helpful to note that the Empty nest is connected by a door to the main house where the owners reside, so its not really the most optimal for romantic endeavors.
We loved our stay and plan to return when next in the area!
We are repeat guests at the Empty Nest and plan to include it in our travel plans any time we are within a hundred miles of Oxford.
Secluded, yet easy to find.
"Farmhouse" is a bit misleading. This is a recently built, beautifully appointed place, with easy going, friendly hosts.
Between the pool and the stable of horses out back, it is a great place for a week-end.
