We immensely enjoyed our time at your cabin! Home away from home!

Lars is great. The cottage is cozy and inviting. We felt very secure in the private setting. Thanks so much for sharing your property with us! We stayed during the DYWS in Cleveland and our Tennessee team from Summertown won the championship. Great times in MS!

A pleasant and comfortable cottage.

  • 5 of 5

While the cottage more than met expectations as a comfortable place to stay for a visit to the Mississippi Delta, it was a surprisingly personal statement in its design, furnishings and especially its decor. The very successful result can compare to good accommodations anywhere. One note: though the photos don't show it, the cottage does have a more or less complete small kitchen, which is important as an option because of its rural location.

Lovely and Unique Experience

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved this cottage. The furnishings, MS delta artwork, and overall feel of the inside was just wonderful. Everything we needed was there, 2 beds, a little kitchen and bathroom. Outside, it was peaceful and the tennis court and pool were wonderful to use with our children. The owners are interesting and caring people who make the experience even better. A short distance away, we visited the amazing BB King museum in Indianola. We would definitely stay here again, it was such a pleasant experience.

Beautiful Spot

  • 5 of 5

Extremely comfortable, with a great view from the back porch. We over packed utensils and simple meals, but there is a small kitchen that has everything you will need to cook breakfast etc. if you bring the ingredients.

I am certain we will visit again,
