Why Jared Gray chose Mississippi

We chose to build this house at Pickwick Lake because it is such a beautiful atmosphere up there. We love the water and love being out on the lake. Pickwick is such a clean lake and offers so much for so many different people in so many different ways.

What makes this house unique

Our house is located in the northern most foothills of Mississippi. Its where 3 states meet, the land is so beautiful and is constantly changing with the seasons. There is so much to offer year round from the Fall folage feels like your in the smoky mountains, to the warm summer where you can enjoy the clear water everything from Hiking, skiing, canoeing, fishing, golfing are just some of the things that make our place special. The others are just the laid back atmosphere.

Would recommend as a Best Buy for Pickwick Lake area

  • 4 of 5

Great for an extended family celebration weekend. Very clean, comfortably furnished, and well- equipped house with plenty of linens and supplies. Kids loved the lower level basement space. Significantly lower price than some other 4 or 5 bedroom options in the area.

Great house, great view, great stay

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed the house and property immensely. The 3 younger ones with us enjoyed the outdoors and several of us went for nice walks. The view of the lake with the full moon shimmering on the water was worth the trip!

The disappointed visit.

  • 1 of 5

We were very disappointed with our stay. This is the second review we have submitted because we haven't heard anything back from our first review! That in and of itself doesn't sit well with us. The house, upon opening the door, we were met with very strong smell of air fresheners, almost an instant headache, made me think what were they trying to mask the smell of, mold? Then looking at the floor, the living room carpet certainly wasn't vacuumed, saw much dirt and debris on there. The bedroom carpet too gave no signs of a vacuum being used either.

Then the glass table in the living room was clearly covered with finger prints as was the dishwasher, certainly there isn't a lot of furniture with which to clean, wipe or dust. The dresser in the bedroom had a good amount of dust on it.

Overall, the general feel was one of being very unclean. In fact, I had to buy 3 canisters of Clorox wipes and use them myself to clean the house.

I hope to hear from the owners, again this is our second review and we have heard nothing back.

Our goal is to provide a property that is adequately supplied with all the necessary amenities, as well as providing a clean and comfortable experience for our guests. Additionally, we want to provide an affordable option for clients and their families/friends. Our review rating is very good, with the vast majority of our feedback being very positive.

More times than not, issues can be resolved during the reserved dates. My contact information is posted and had I been made aware of your concerns promptly, I would have personally came by and addressed them. Thanks again for staying at Pickwick Heights.

Nice Home with beautiful view of the lake.

  • 4 of 5

Took my kids and parents to Mississippi for the first time. We visited the Shiloh National Military Park (30 minutes away), and some of the local attractions (Rib Cage, Our Lady of the Lake Catholic Church). Rain kept us off the lake on Sunday - but the house kept us comfortable for a very enjoyable weekend together.

The house has 2 different personalities: the top 2 floors are a normal modern home, while the lower floor is more of a rustic cabin.

We enjoyed our stay at Pickwick. Jared was great to work with and very accommodating. Our very large family met here for Thanksgiving - lots of places to sleep. Beautiful views of the lake.
