    "This was "the girls" annual trip. We had the most relaxing time. The cottage was beautiful, clean and comfortable and the owners more than met our expectations. Thank you so much for making this one of the best vacations ever."

  • Girls Weekend

    "Latham House was wonderful. It was very comfortable and inviting. My group of 5 old high school friends had plenty of space. It was well appointed and we appreciated the bottled water and treat basket. Our only regret was not being there long enough to use the gorgeous back porch and barbeque area. It was just a few minutes from the Square and lots of great restaurants. (City Grocery, Boure, Lamar Lounge, Snackbar, BBB). Great destination for a girls trip or a couples weekend even if you don't have kids that go to Ole Miss! Already planning a return trip!"

  • Dynamic Getaway!!!!

    "My family, my brother's family and our Mom/Dad ALL needed a quick getaway because we didn't get to take our usual week long vacay to the beach... this was the best weekend escape ever! The kids LOVED fishing on the dock.. they spent practically all day and night there. The house had more than enough supplies and amenities and the house was extremely spacious. We all have said that we will make it an annual trip or maybe even twice a year since it's so close to where we live. We didn't expect to find such a peaceful and clean environment tucked away in Sardis but are very happy that we went. I would recommend this property to anyone at any time! Thanks so much!"

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.

Visit the Mighty Mississippi and Memphis Tennessee

Oxford vacation houses are conveniently located for a wide variety of day trips. While staying in Oxford, visitors may want to explore along the famous Mississippi River, with its beaches and activities to enjoy. The state also has many historic sites from the Civil War, such as Beauvior, the impressive home of Jefferson Davis, the only President of the Confederate States and Brice’s Crossroads National Battlefield and Visitors Center.

Within an hour’s drive of Oxford is Memphis, Tennessee where visitors may want to visit such sites as the National Civil Rights Museum, housed in the old Lorraine Motel, where Martin Luther King Jr. was shot and killed. One of the most famous tourist attractions in the United States is also in Memphis--Graceland, former home of the legendary Elvis Presley. Other than the White House, this house is the most visited home in America. Other sites in Memphis are Mud Island River Park, Pink Palace Museum, Memphis Walk of Fame, Stax Museum and the Cotton Museum among many more.
