Property description

Nestled among tall plantation pines and fronting a scenic, serene lake, Amity Cabin invites you to enjoy time away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Situated on a 400 acre plantation pine farm, Amity's guests enjoy the beauty of the land, the bounty of its 35 acre well-stocked lake, and the peace and quiet of a private farm. Whether looking for well-earned R&R, planning a hunt for whitetail deer or turkey, enjoying our lake for your own fishing pleasure, attending a rousting MSU sports event, golfing at near-by Old Waverly, 'pilgrimaging' in Columbus or Aberdeen or just wanting to kick back and do nothing, Amity Cabin is the perfect country destination.

A completely renovated sharecropper's cabin, Amity blends modern comfort with cabin life. Sip your morning coffee or evening refreshment relaxing in a rocker on Amity’s wide front porch. Watch the sun wake up the day; wrap yourself up in the beauty of Amity’s sunsets. Answer the lake’s call to fish for crappie, bass or bream. Grill your morning catch for dinner and for dessert? Roast marshmallows in the outdoor chiminea for delicious s’mores. We even provide you with some firewood.

Step inside Amity. The front door opens into the living and dining area complete with a 40” flat screen TV and DVD player. Amity’s kitchen features all new appliances including a dishwasher, plenty of counter space for family meal preparation, pots, pans, dishes, eating and cooking utensils – even a fresh roll of paper towels. Don’t want to cook? Let us do the cooking: we have yummy catering available.
End your day in one of Amity’s two bedrooms. Select the king bed in one or grab a bunk or the queen bed in the other bedroom. We supply all of the linens and a basket of blankets for cooler evenings. The living room sofa opens into an extra queen bed for two more guests. The new bath has a tub/shower combo. Don’t worry about bringing any linens: Amity has plenty.

Ready to enjoy a few days away from it all? Reserving Amity Cabin is just a few clicks away.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2006

About: A missionary kid turned physician met a native Mississippian on the internet -- and the rest is history. When we married, we consolidated households and moved to the country. Anam Cara, our farm, (Celtic for 'soul friend') has been our home since 2006 and we enjoy the expansive 400+ acres, the natural beauty of the Lake (Amity is situated across the lake from our home), and the glorious trees that surround us. Amity was a broken-down cabin when we purchased Anam Cara. Recently we decided to renovate it to share the serenity and beauty with others. Many guests have already experienced the beauty and serenity that surrounds Amity Cabin. We hope you will enjoy it, too.

Why Starkville:
Mississippi is our home! When we first glimpsed Anam Cara, there was no question that this is where we wanted to live. Amity Cabin enjoys all of the beauty and tranquility of Anam Cara, and now we can share both with new friends.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
To borrow a phrase, Amity Cabin is a little piece of heaven for those who enjoy the tranquility and beauty of country life. Whether rocking on the front porch or enjoying the comforts of the cabin itself, friends will find a place where they can relax and just be themselves.
