Summit farmhouse description

Rose Gate Farm offers elegant accommodation in a blissful rural setting. Enjoy drinks on the front porch or a stroll through five wooded acres.

The Topisaw Creek is clear and cool--spend time on the sand or rock bars, soaking up the sun or hunting for rocks and fossils (petrified wood and arrowheads have been found here). Many folks also enjoy a leisurely float down the creek in inner tubes ('tubing').

Just a short walk through the woods brings you to Camp Topisaw, our home and workplace, where we handcraft traditional soaps, skincare products and natural wax candles. We also raise rare-breed Pineywoods Cows and Gulf Coast Native Sheep, chickens, donkeys and a flock of guinea hens. Be sure to visit our shop, Topisaw General Store, on Main Street in downtown McComb. We serve lunch Tuesday-Saturday, and you can shop for Camp Topisaw products plus work from local and regional artisans.

Rose Gate Farm is centrally located for your stay in the Deep South--1.5 hours from New Orleans, Baton Rouge and Jackson and 1 hour from Natchez and Hattiesburg. We are 15 minutes from McComb MS where you'll find and excellent railroad museum, galleries, excellent dining (don't miss The Caboose with their fabulous steaks, double-cut pork chop and seafood) and Percy Quin State Park, home of 4 star-rated Quail Hollow Golf Course. We are also a short drive from Southwest MS Junior College in Summit, MS.

Rose Gate boasts luxury bedding, classically-styled furniture, a whole-house stereo system, antique flooring from New Orleans and handcrafted custom soaps and lotions. Two twin size Aerobeds are available for extra sleeping.

Bedroom #1 has a king size 4 poster bed, a large walk-in closet and its own marble-floored bathroom with double vanities and walk-in shower.

Bedroom #2 has a queen size sleigh bed, a wingback chair for reading, a lovely view of the wooded front yard and its own bath with shower.

                            My family visited Rose Gate in July 2012 and we were pleasantly surprised to find that it was perfect for our vacation needs. As a native of the area I was familiar with Topisaw Creek and the Bogue Chitto River, having camped, fished, tubed, and kayaked in the area off and on over a lot of years. But I had no idea there was such a hidden jewel nestled way back in the woods off a road already less traveled. The house was beautifully appointed and full of unexpected amenities and little secluded nooks for reading or sipping coffee and watching a sunrise or a thunderstorm. I loved the front porch swing, the open layout of the house, and especially the enclosed sunroom that runs the length of the house on the east side and takes advantage of sunrise through the woods. We availed ourselves to the recreational opportunities the creek affords by lounging in the cool water and on the sandbars, kayaking on a couple different stretches of stream, and small water fishing for redbellies (longear sunfish) and Kentucky or spotted bass with fly rods and ultralight tackle. After a half century of catching redbellies, I am still convinced they are the prettiest and definitely the tastiest fish in Mississippi. But we were equally content to just hang around the house, enjoy the great sound system or watch movies, loaf on the patios, and wander the gardens and grounds. Actually, we were so content that nobody wanted to go anywhere else to visit, sightsee, or even to eat out - a remarkable condition for us. In fact, after an especially heavy thunderstorm knocked out power for miles around for a couple hours, we just lighted a few candles and enjoyed the enhanced peace and quiet even more. It would be easy to pass along the road by Rose Gate and never even know it is there, perhaps its greatest charm, for me. But once you do visit, I'm sure that you, like my family, will look forward to going back again and again.

                            Recommended for: Girls getaway, families with young children, sightseeing, age 55+, families with teenagers, romantic getaway.

                            Owner response: What an incredible tribute to this home that my parents built with such love. Thank you, and we hope you'll be able to return again soon.

                            What a restful place to spend a few days! Thanks for sharing your place wih us. We enjoyed reading in the sunroom, napping on the couch, swinging on the back deck, playing the baby grand piano in the living room, working puzzles in the dining room, listening to jazz and Chopin on the surround sound system all over the house and gobbling down their great mocha brownies! It was a perfect respite from our busy life - two days with no TV or Internet or telephones or children. Just what we needed. Returned home relaxed! P.S. Enjoyed dinner at The Caboose and the soaps and lotion are wonderful! Thank you again!

                            Rose Gate is both uniquely elegant and comfortable. The hosts are very gracious and helpful. The home is tastefully decorated and fully stocked which made our visit such a joy!! The grounds are beautifully landscaped with flowers, shrubs and statues. In addition, there is an abundance of outdoor seating to enjoy the peaceful, lovely views. Rose Gate is immaculate with many unexpected amenities. The location is country for a restful retreat and yet only a short drive from McColm and Summit for dining and shopping. Natchez, Vicksburg, Hattiesburg, St. Francesville and New Orleans are within a couple hours drive for day trips. Rose Gate’s sound system is definitely a bonus. The front and back porches are great for reading and visiting with family and friends. Rose Gate is a must visit!! GO to Rose Gate is our recommendation. We are already discussing our next visit.

                            Upon turning into the driveway of Rose Gate, was happy to notice the wooded property boundries. This farmhouse is rustic in outward appearance, but surprises its guests by opening doors to an elegant, fully functional home. Rose Gate allows lazy days, (you must spent time on both front and back porches),or adventure and sightseeing. Beautiful clean country roads to drive, stroll or bike. Down the path and thru the woods to TOPISAW CREEK we go. Cold, crystal clear water, sandbars, swimming, fishing, and the opportunity for tubing...bring sunscreen/tanning lotion, picnic basket, make noise, run, laugh, jump and splash in the creek, or simply enjoy the quietness of moving water and the surrounding sound of the woods. I cannot imagine an occasion this location would not do justice... family gatherings, couple w/end, honeymoon, Thanksgiving/Christmas, church retreats...Rose Gate will not disappoint, as it is "town and country" making all welcome and comfortable. My husband and I stayed Sept. 2010 and returned Jan. 2011. We hear a hot-tub is coming and a hammack hanging between two trees somewhere is the only added touch I can imagine. The owners make you feel you have forever known them. Thanks for a wonderful two stays, we will return.

                            All I can say is...GO to this place and you won't be sorry. Everything about it is top notch as are the people who own it. We were there in the fall and can't wait to go back in the summer so we can play in the creek! Explore McComb and Summit as they are great places. Eat at the Caboose and you will be happy you did. We needed one more day, at least!

                            My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful weekend at Rose Gate. The home is beautiful; the gardens are peaceful, and the creek is refreshing. We were able to escape from our fast-paced life to the quiet country, yet we relaxed luxurious comfort. A short walk down the stream lead to the creek, and the fish were actually biting. My most enjoyable moments were spent lounging on the sandbar while the cool, clear water rushed over me. It was my own private spa. We are looking forward to returning, and we hope to bring our bikes.

                            The listing description understates the beauty, elegance, and peacefulness of the place in its woodsy rural setting. The house has floor-to-ceiling windows on three sides of the living area which offers a panoramic view of the roses, azaleas, and butterfly bushes that encircle the house. A spacious patio extends to the woods' edge; multiple groups of strategically placed chairs offer a respite under the trees--great places to read, meditate, and talk. I noticed sweet gum trees along the back patio--they turn glorious shades of red in the fall. The photos may not have fully captured the wonderfully high ceilings and expansive, spacious living areas. My husband and I sat and sipped tea in four of at least 14 different sitting places inside and outside the house. The property is immaculately clean, extremely well maintained (it looks like it has just been built and furnished), mattresses are pillow-top--quite comfortable, sheets seem to be sateen 100% Egyptian cotton with high thread count (I did not actually read the label, but I know good quality sheets when I see them!). And the homemade soap that the owners make feels good on your skin--I like the Sweet Clover one. What a peaceful place to go to--to re-connect with friends and family members. And I have not yet mentioned the beautiful Topisaw Creek right out back! Apparently there are fish in there! The owners were helpful in answering questions. The book in the living room gave us a wealth of information on area restaurants, activities, and attractions. We ate dinner at the Caboose downtown McComb. My swordfish steak was some of the best fish I have eaten in a while. I highly recommend that place for lunch or dinner. I recommend a day trip to Woodville about 50 miles west. Chartered in 1811, this historic town of 1,200 has three of Mississippi's oldest churches, and is home to Clark Creek Natural Area, a state park which has 50 waterfalls from 10 to 35 feet high that eventually empty into the Mississippi River. We have taken a picnic, hiked the falls area--made it to the first one--and were so happy to see the newly constructed restroom buildings, complete with water fountains. Kids love playing under the waterfalls, by the way. Birders and botanists love this place. Get to Rose Gate Farm in Summit for some R&R! It's an easy drive to Natchez, Woodville, Brookhaven, Hattiesburg. (Watch out for deer along the roadways!).

                            A group of us stayed here in mid August for an extended weekend getaway. The house was beautiful, comfortable, and perfectly suited our needs. Being avid music lovers, the whole house (including outside) sound system was the perfect touch. Numerous outdoor spaces, benches, porches, etc. were much enjoyed by our outdoors-loving group. A walk through the woods brought us to Topisaw Creek, which was a wonderful stream to wade through, fish with light tackle (spotted bass and long-ear sunfish), swim in, and float down using tubes from a local rental company. The float was perfect, only taking a little more than an hour to complete, starting from the bridge about a mile up the road, to the north. We also had a mediterranean dinner prepared for us by the owners, which was excellent! Bird lovers, this house would be a wonderful retreat during spring migration.

                            This was a beautiful, peaceful place to sit back and reflect. I enjoyed the creek each and every day. Hoping to bring the family back in the near future. Loved the house, loved the nature!

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2004

                          About the owner: We love the serenity of life in the country! Our lives are centered here (we have a home business, and we home school our children), but we also love to travel. So far, France is our favorite destination. We've recently opened Topisaw General Store in downtown McComb and enjoy being a part of the revitalization efforts in our historic railroad town.

                          Why the Owner Chose Summit:
                          My parents, Earl and Edith, built Rose Gate as their retirement dream. They both grew up in the country and were so happy to return here, hand-selecting every facet of the home, from its siting to the antique flooring to the roses, camellias and southern shrubs that surround the property.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
                          Private, relaxing, quiet, restful...We hear these words again and again as our guests describe their stay at Rose Gate. You'll enjoy being alone in nature, watching birds from the swing and drinking your morning coffee or your evening cocktail on the front porch.
