To enjoy a truly relaxing Oxford experience this little two bedroom, one bath cottage is the place for you. The 2011-2012 renovation was painstakingly careful to preserve the old Mississippi house feel. It is truly a charming house, The cottage features an open floorplan with a full size kitchen which opens out to a 14x30 screened porch with vaulted ceiling. Walk to the historic old Oxford town square for some of the South's best shopping, dining, and entertainment; stroll around the local Avents Park just down the street or dine in the two best restaurants/bar in town (just steps from the front door) or enjoy Ole Miss sports and tailgating; hit the local antique shops or just take a nap in the swing.....it's up to you.
Glen and Paige Evans are the owners of 213 Williams. The home was recently purchased and renovated for the use of family and friends.
Paige currently holds a Real Estate Liscense in Ms. and is employed through Walker Realty.
Paige Evans purchased this cottage in 2011
We think this location is perfect for the person who likes the idea that the car can stay in the driveway. Stroll to the town square, the park for tennis, walking trails and play grounds, or antiquing or enjoying some of the best restaurants and bars in the South. And I am just mentioning the ones that are the closest. There are two James Beard Award winning restaurants just steps from the front door. The University and ballgames with tailgating second to none is only 1.9 miles or there is public transportation nearby. The University also has many nationally known preformances at the Ford Center. Because it is in this little neighborhood it can also be a retreat from some of the excitement if rest is what you desire.
We think it is one of the cutest little houses in town. When we started work on this house we decided it had to look like the Oxford houses we had known growing up. I think this sweet little white lap board house has hit the mark.
Every host should have this kind of guest. Shortly after her arrival she sent a message thanking me for some small extras and telling me how happy she was in our little house. She seemed to notice and appreciate all the things in and about the place that set it apart. She took special care of the house. We appreciatete this lovely guest and hope she finds a reason to visit again soon.
My husband, son, and I visited Oxford to look at Ole Miss. I stumbled on this house at the last minute and thankfully it was available. Paige was delightful, making arrangements for us to stay even though she was out of town. We couldn't have had a better setup: two bedrooms and a bath, with a living room and fabulous porch. The house is charmingly decorated and gave us all room to spread out - much better than a hotel room. This was my first experience with VRBO and it could not have been more perfect. The charm of Oxford was made more perfect by this charming house and homeowner, and we look forward to future trips to Oxford!
During our recent first-ever visit to Oxford to attend a wedding, my wife and I rented Paige’s cottage to use as our home base for the three days we were in town. We could not have chosen a better place to stay, given the well-stocked kitchen, comfortable beds, and large enclosed rear porch. This cottage is indeed cozy and atmospheric, exuding a down-home charm that would be impossible to find in a hotel. The location on Williams Street is extremely quiet; we never had any problems with noise. An easy walk of 15 minutes or so along North Lamar will bring you to the historic downtown Courthouse Square that is the heart of Oxford with numerous restaurants and shops.
It was a pleasure to work with Paige, who made us feel like a guest, not a client. She answered all our E-mails promptly, and we enjoyed the phone conversations we had with her after our arrival. The security deposit was returned to us in full just a few days after our stay. Were we ever to return to Oxford, we would not hesitate to rent this cottage again. Thanks, Paige, for a great experience!
This little gem was decorated very well and had a fantastic screened in back porch (although we were so busy during my daughter's orientation, we only came back to sleep). The bathroom is adorable as well, but was not big enough for the two of us in the morning, so one of us had to get ready in the bedroom crouching down to see ourselves in the mirror. Bed quality could be improved but wasn't horrible. All in all, a great place for 1 or 2 people max. who can share a bathroom. I would stay here again.
The square and campus were a short drive away.
The owner was responsive and easy to work with.
Spent a football weekend at this darling little cottage. Decorated to perfection; very comfortable and welcoming. Loved the back porch. Great location for accessing the campus. Paige was very helpful in telling us all about Oxford.
Perfect getaway location (Oxford) coupled with perfect getaway house! The location of this wonderful property is close enough to walk to the square, the grove and the stadium. Were lucky enough to have short wait time to BBB (greatest breakfast ever) on a Saturday morning....just a block from the house. Such comfort and attention to detail inside and made quick friends with the super happy Golden Retriever (fenced in) next door :) Very quiet neighborhood along lovely street. Hope to meet the owners our next time through. After so much time on the phone with Paige, feel I already know her! Very very accommodating and friendly.
My husband and I recently stayed at this adorable little cottage with some friends. We were showing our friends around Oxford and Ole Miss. The trip was perfect, and the house was in a perfect location. The walk was close, and the house was near BBB ( my favorite breakfast place) and Volta. The owners were so caring and on top of things. The house was clean and in perfect shape. They even left us milk, orange juice, and snacks. We had the best time!
Located less than a mile from downtown Oxford's charming town square with its many shopping, dining and entertainment opportunities. Convenient to the beautiful Ole Miss campus known for its best in the nation tailgating on football weekends, extraordinary architecture, park like campus and exciting SEC sporting events. This home is also just steps away from two of James Beard winner John Currance's restaurants, local favorites Snack Bar and Big Bad Breakfast.
