About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Lake View

Cypress Woods is a 20 acre property located one mile from the historic Taylor Grocery Restaurant and just 10 minutes from the University of Mississippi and Oxford Square. This tranquil property has woods, pastures, and a Lakehouse for your enjoyment. The newly renovated 2BR/2 Bath Lakehouse cottage overlooks a 5 acre lake.

The cottage was originally built in 1998 by one of Taylor’s own master carpenters and has beautiful wooden beams throughout the vaulted living room and kitchen area as well as the master bedroom. The master bedroom has a king bed and its own bathroom with a whirlpool tub and shower. The master bedroom has a door leading to the main deck. The guest bedroom also has its own bath with a shower and a queen bed. The guest bedroom has a separate covered deck overlooking the lake. The kitchen has a heart pine bar top that is great for gatherings. The kitchen comes completely furnished with cookware and utensils and includes coffee, cream and sweeteners. A laundry room off the kitchen has a washer / dryer and a large pantry shelf for guest storage. A charcoal grill is provided.

About Daniel Barfield

Daniel Barfield and Family, Oxford residents for 15 years; We wanted a place to get away to on the weekends and we found our 'Retreat' where we stay when time allows.

Daniel Barfield purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Daniel Barfield chose Mississippi

We fell in love with the property's unique cottage and combination of woods, pastures and lake. You can relax watching the sunset over the lake. You can walk the property to enjoy its beautiful scenery and wildlife.

What makes this cottage unique

Peace and quiet. Being surrounded by nature. Beautiful views.

Easy access to Oxford & Ole Miss, but far enough to get away. A short drive to two great restaurants, Taylor Grocery and The Ravine.

A lovely setting and super gathering place for a football weekend! Owner graciously accommodated a change in our schedule, which allowed us to spend more time with family in the area. We'd definitely recommend this to anyone wanting to stay in the Oxford vicinity/attend events at Ole Miss.

Peaceful and perfect for families

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time staying at the property. The house was as nice as we remembered. We were visiting Ole Miss with our high school senior. The lake house provided lots of entertainment for our younger children. Bring your life vests and fishing poles! We made some great family memories this weekend.

This house was amazing. So super cute and beautiful. The woodwork/workmanship is gorgeous. We will hopefully stay in this house many times. Oh and the roads are super safe to bike and run on.

Delightful relaxing spot!

  • 5 of 5

We (two couples and our dog) recently spent ten nights at the cottage for Ole Miss Homecoming and a family wedding a week later. We were all very pleased with our choice. It was fun to go to events and then return to the quiet and comfort of the cottage. We had everything we needed. The bed was very comfortable, it was great having a washer and dryer, internet accessibility, three big TV's with Direct TV, the kitchen had plenty of dishes, utensils and pans, we enjoyed having the balcony, decks, and grill, and the owner provided an iron and ironing board (when I asked beforehand if one was available!). He was also responsive to several other questions we had. I recommend Cypress Woods and would be pleased to stay there again.

Flowood, Mississippi

Secluded and private property near Oxford, Mississippi

  • 4 of 5

Cypress Woods is an architectural jewel located just outside Oxford in Taylor, Mississippi. The lakehouse is attractive and well stocked and the owner was prompt and helpful in his responses. The house and property could benefit from some general maintenance (such as removing clutter from the garage and surrounding property, more attention to detail when cleaning, and replacing some bedding) but it is comfortable and private and the five adults and three dogs who spent the weekend there had a most enjoyable experience. (Taylor Grocery and Grit, the new restaurant at Plein Air, were added bonuses when we did not want to cook or drive into Oxford. )
