About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Our cottage is located in the heart of downtown Natchez but sits at the end of a very private gravel road surrounded by five acres of property. The inside is modern with all of the conveniences to make your stay comfortable. There is a large open air deck that wraps around the entire side and back of the cottage for outside relaxing. You are in walking distance to restaurants, shops, and antebellum homes.

Why Britton Gammill chose Mississippi

It is like living in the country but it is actually located in the heart of Natchez.

What makes this cottage unique

It is a very private, inviting setting and you can watch deer and other animals while relaxing on the deck in the evening.

Fantastic stay at the Chicken Coop

  • 5 of 5

We arrived from the United Kingdom for a week at the Chicken Coop. The house is immaculate and Britton and Jimmy are great hosts. Natchez is a lovely town to visit and we enjoyed our week sight seeing in the area. The weather was fantastic and we can thoroughly recommend a stay in the Chicken Coop. Thanks once again to you both. Lesley, Hugh Margaret and Guy.

We hope you both enjoy your cruise. Best wishes.

Owner's Response: You all came a long way to visit Natchez and I am so glad that your trip was all that you hoped it to be. I am really pleased to get such a nice review from someone who has been in the rental business much longer than I have. Natchez is truly a beautiful town and you all really lucked up weather-wise. I have a few in the lower yard that are missing you all also. We send our best to all of you and hope that paths cross again at either our place or yours. Sincerely, BG and JG The Chicken Coop Cottage

Another Wonderful Stay At The Chicken Coop

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to The Chicken Coop. Another delightful stay in such a quaint and well kept cottage. Always quiet and relaxing, a perfect get away. We especially enjoyed watching the deer in the yard. Britton and Jimmy are perfect hosts, and we hope to visit their charming cottage again soon.

charming and peaceful, the only thing I would have changed would have been to have ceiling fans on the front porch.

Owner's Response: We appreciate your review and hope that you will return when you make another trip thru Natchez. It makes me tired just thinking of all the driving that you did on this past trip. I liked your idea for ceiling fans also....this past summer has been a killer but we are expecting cooler weather later this week. Enjoyed meeting you all and hope to see you again soon.

wonderful place for a quiet getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The home was clean and very comfortable. Decorated beautifully! Britton is a wonderful person to work with when booking. She had a ton of info for us about Natchez. And left us the most wonderful homemade treats! And on arrival she had made us a pitcher of lemonade that was cold in the fridge.

Would definitely recommend!

Owner's Response: Lisa, thank you so much for your sweet note as well as the nice review. I am so glad that you all enjoyed your stay and I will share the cake recipe with you when you all return. It is easy! I think one reason we get a lot of girl groups is they feel safe and secure down here at the end of the drive and they are close to all of the activities. Enjoyed meeting you all and keep us on your list. You are welcome back at the Coop whenever you all can slip off out of town again.

The Place to Stay in Natchez

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to the Chicken Coop and it was every bit as delightful as the first. The house was immaculately clean, comfortable, and handsomely decorated and there was an abundance of cookies and lemonade. Although the house sits at the end of a cul-de-sac with abundant greenery all around, giving it a rural feel, it is just a few blocks from historic downtown Natchez. Britton and Jimmy are the perfect hosts. We didn’t even consider staying anywhere else on our return trip to Natchez.

Owner's Response: Thank you both for the nice review. I love having repeat customers and you two seem to enjoy life so much. I think I would enjoy seeing the country your way but I might have to take our two little house dogs with us! Will see you next trip and appreciate your leaving the Coop so neat!

Our stay at The Chicken Coop could not have been more perfect, unless we had had a few more days to stay :)

The home was so comfortable, clean, and cutely decorated and the Gammills were such welcoming hosts. They checked on us enough that

we felt cared for but left us alone enough that we didn't feel smothered. They were great help with eating recommendations, info about the area, and just

delightful people to talk to. It was well appointed with coffee, homemade treats, any toiletries we might have forgotten, comfortable beds, reading material about the area, and it was clean enough to eat off the floors. My only concern about writing this review is that when we are able to go back, we won't be able to get a reservation because so many others will discover it!

Thanks ever so much to Britton and Jimmy!

Owner's Response: We appreciate your lovely review more than you know and having nice guests like your family is a pleasure for us. Want you to know that we looked for you all at the "low water crossing" and were glad to see that you all were not in the creek! You know you are welcome back at the Coop at any time....Natchez just got named the number 5 best southern town in the country to visit which is always good to learn! Hope your parents enjoyed the Swamp Tour....that is something that I always wanted to do! Stay in touch and I hope we have the pleasure of your company again. When you get tired of nursing, I might make you my advertising manager! Our best to your family also!
