The cottage was in a perfect location. It's very private, yet close to everything Natchez has to offer. The owners were welcoming and even had snacks and drinks ready for us when we got there. We can't wait to come back for a longer stay.

True Southern Hospitality!

  • 5 of 5

Wow. Was absolutely blown away by our stay at The Chicken Coop on so many levels. First of all, working with Britton and her husband Jimmy was a pleasure. I had a lot of questions leading up to my stay, and Britton was always happy to get back with all my inquiries. She even waited up for us the night we arrived as we were running late and she knew I was nervous about getting lost. When we got to the property she was happy to show us around despite our late arrival. It is not often that a place you rent on VRBO looks BETTER in person than it does in photos, but this place really does. It is just darling with so many little details and added touches that make it feel cozy while still managing to feel updated, clean and organized. I am a neat freak and this place definitely exceeded my standards. She had homemade baked goods out for us, was there if ever we needed anything, but kept to herself as well. She knows everything you would need to know about Natchez, and has plenty of info at the property to browse through or you can just give her a call and ask if you prefer that. The grounds were lovely, peaceful and quiet with song birds chirping in the morning, and we were lucky enough to see deer one late afternoon crossing through the meadow out back. Her furry friends are adorable as well if you feel like visiting, but they also like to keep to themselves if you don't have much interest in them. My mom and I had the most amazing time on our short stay there, we will definitely be back for a longer visit the next time around. Thank you Britton and Jimmy for showing us what Southern Hospitality is really all about!

So glad that the trip was everything that you all wanted it to be and certainly hope that we have the opportunity to have you two stay with us again. We are fortunate to really have a good location as far as being convenient and we love having the big yard as you know we love animals of every kind. You can't imagine how many deer we have seen lately....mamas and babies!

Owner's Response: Thank you all for staying with us at the Chicken Coop and hope you all enjoyed your visit to Natchez. I imagine that it seemed like a sleepy little town after coming from the big city.....I also think that is why we have as many tourists as we do. They always say the grass is greener on the other side. We appreciate the nice review and would love to have you all return at any time.

The Chicken Coop Cottage could not have been better. The owners, Jimmy & Britton Gammill were the best hosts ever. They made us feel welcome the minute we arrived. The cottage is adorable and immaculate. There was fresh baked goodies and fresh lemonade waiting for us to enjoy. The peace and quiet at the cottage was wonderful and the town of Natchez was a fun place to visit. We can't wait until we can return.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the nice review. We enjoyed meeting the two of you and hope to see you all back in Natchez sooner than later. Tell your husband that Peanut Butter doesn't have anyone to talk to! Also I wanted you to know that I really appreciated your leaving the Coop so neat and clean. You are welcome back whenever you two want to slip away for another quiet week-end. Thanks again for staying with us. Britton Gammill The Chicken Coop Cottage

Very Relaxing Stay!

  • 5 of 5

The Chicken Coop was the perfect getaway from work, traffic and overall stresses of life. It is downtown, yet you feel as if you're in the country. Deer came to visit each evening which were wonderful to watch from the back deck. We also enjoyed the dogs! The Coop is very well decorated, clean and cute. The owners are very friendly and helpful. We ate tamales at Fat Mama's the first night and grilled steaks at the Coop the next. We will definitely recommend the Chicken Coop to friends and hope to be back soon!

Owner's Response: Got your sweet note and also appreciate your taking the time to write a lovely review. So glad the weather didn't get bad and also that you were able to watch the deer in the evening. It is amazing how many deer we see in the yard considering we are also in the middle of really is like living in the country but being in the heart of town. Also wanted to thank you for leaving the Coop so neat. If you ever have a VRBO, I want to stay at yours cause I know you are a housekeeper of the best kind! Missed seeing more of you this trip but hope you will definitely keep us on your list. Natchez is really a nice, little town to relax in and get away from heavy traffic, etc. and take it easy. Lots of Baton Rouge, New Orleans, and Jackson folks love to come down and take it easy on the week-ends. Enjoyed meeting you two and we will be hoping to see you both again soon.

Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our third visit to the Chicken Coop. It was perfect in every way, and Jimmy and Britton are the perfect hosts. We enjoyed the homemade goodies, and we were able to enjoy the front porch this time. This home is super clean and comfy. We love visiting Natchez and touring the historic homes. Britton is always able to answer all our questions about homes and restaurants. We hope to return soon!
