Location: Taylor, Mississippi USA (6 miles to the Ole Miss Grove and the heart of Oxford Square). Heading down Old Taylor Road from the University is a seven minute drive straight to your retreat.

Be sure to visit Bottle Tree Bakery and pick up some of their delicious bread and pastries to take home.

Your stay in Oxford would not be complete without taking a stroll through Rowan Oak, William Faulkner's residence and serene grounds in the heart of Oxford.

We loved everything about the house. Clean, plenty of space, great floor-plan with decks out front and out back, plenty of linens, the neighbors are really friendly and invited us over for a BBQ, the famous Taylor Grocery is 100 yards away. Everything about this place was EXACTLY what we had hoped for. No complaints at all.

Little piece of heaven

This artsy, eclectic cottage was wonderful to stay in for 5 nights! It was clean and well appointed - had everything we needed. It was great being so close to a wedding at Plein Air...the groomsmen had plenty of room to change into their tuxes and primp before the wedding. We enjoyed all the art in the cottage and I fell in love with one of the lamps! Now I'm on the hunt for one like it! We cooked in the rustic kitchen and felt right at home. We look forward for a reason to return - we still have 2 unmarried nephews in Oxford. Perhaps when they get married we will have an excuse?
