Taylor Cottage Rental Photos and Description

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.

Perfect little place for a weekend getaway

  • 4 of 5

There was plenty of room for our party and even a place for our boat. The location is close enough to town if you want to go out or pick up necessities, but far enough away to not have any light or noise pollution.

We would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful property, very well maintained and clean.

  • 5 of 5

The lakefront property is beautiful...and literally sits on the water. The wrap around deck extends right over a small lake, filled with turtles and fish. It is a lovely retreat only minutes away from Ole Miss in the quaint town of Taylor.

It is a fairly remote property down a long private drive, so as long as that is appealing this is the perfect property rental. There is a lot of wildlife surrounding the lake house, situated back in the woods. It's not easy to find if you arrive after dark, which we did. Once we arrived we were very pleasantly surprised.

Great southern hospitality...the owner provided coffee supplies for us and the house was stocked with ample towels, bathroom necessities and fresh linens.

We loved it and will certainly return.

Tranquil place to relax and unwind

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful location to get away for a long weekend. The owners/hosts were very gracious and accommodating. The property is lakeside and the home is situated overhanging the water, providing a very relaxing atmosphere. There is a fire pit adjacent to the home near the water that we utilized to enjoy the quiet evenings. The inside of the home is decorated very nicely and has all he needed amenities. The kitchen specifically is well equipped with up to date appliances. Overall, we enjoyed out stay very much and will come back when our schedule allows.

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the lakehouse for a little over a week in early December, and I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. The house was beautiful, comfortable, and (importantly, to me) very clean. Our 3 1/2 year old son loved exploring outside and feeding the fish. They even put up a Christmas tree for us, which our son was so happy to see! The house was the perfect blend of close-to-town and out-of-the-way. We were able to enjoy Oxford and RELAX! We cannot wait to return!
