  • Perfect Accomodations

    "This was our third stay at this house and it was as enjoyable as always! Oxford was swarming with folks in town for the Alabama / Ole Miss game, and though very close to town this house provided the perfect, quiet getaway for my husband and myself, my teenage daughter and her friend. The house lives large with 2 porches and plenty of yard to enjoy. Dorothy was prompt in responding and very accessible during our stay. I would recommend this house to anyone staying in Oxford."

  • Wonderful!!!

    "My family stayed over a weekend and we had the most wonderful time. The owner was easy to work with and answered every question I had. He made our reservation process so easy and clean. The house is perfect and was very clean. It was just as described on the website. Although we brought our own things, there was clothes detergent, shampoo, soaps, lotions, etc available. We were very close to the beach and right in the middle of a shopping district. Everything we needed was within walking distance. I would recommend this rental to anyone!!! I am ready to go back next year already! We enjoyed it so much. My son loved it!!"

Oxford Travel Tips

Oxford Vacation Rentals Are in One of America’s Top 100 Small Towns

The city of Oxford, in Lafayette County, Mississippi was founded in 1835 and is home to "Ole Miss," the University of Mississippi. It is regularly nominated as one of the Best 100 Small Towns in America. The climate here is good all year-round with long somewhat humid summers and short mild winters. Oxford lodging is accessible from Interstate 55 and within an hour’s drive of Memphis with its international airport.

Oxford Vacation Houses Are Ideal for Visiting Many Attractions

The affluent city of Oxford has an interesting history with many attractions commemorating its past. The town square itself dates from 1837 and remains the hub of this small city. Here, visitors to Oxford vacation rentals will enjoy exploring the unique boutiques, stores and even the oldest department store in the South. There are also art galleries, book stores and restaurants.

The LQC Lamar House is a restored three-acre site commemorating the life of this former Supreme Court Judge, who lived here from 1869 to 1888. Visitors can also tour Rowan Oak, the home of the Nobel Prize winning author William Faulkner. Nearby, Faulkner fans will find his final resting place at St. Peter’s Cemetery, along with many other of the city’s notable residents. While here, also visit the University Museum with its fascinating permanent exhibitions of Greek and Roman artifacts, 19th-century scientific equipment and local folk artist Theora Hamblett. Music lovers may also want to investigate the Blues Archive at the university, with an impressive collection of records, movies, photographs and more. Much of the exhibitions are influenced by African American musicians. The Center for the Study of Southern Culture has an excellent display of photography from across the south. The Confederate Cemetery is a small walled garden housing a single monument at its center. This marks the 1862 graves of over 700 Confederate and Union soldiers at the battle of Shiloh. An evening out in the city may include a visit to the Powerhouse Community Arts and Cultural Center where there are a variety of events such as open mic nights, movies, live performances, and more. Dating from 1880, the Walton-Young Historic House is a registered State Landmark and the Historic Burns Church commemorates the original "freedmen’s town" and the role of African Americans in the city’s development.
