Car: Recommended

Clarksdale is located in the heart of the Mississippi Delta. We have live music seven nights a week. If you like blues music, you will like Clarksdale. We have numerous music festivals throughout the year including the Juke Joint Festival, Sunflower River Blues & Gospel Festival, Caravan Festival, Hambone Festival and the King Biscuit Festival, to name only a few.

Rates are subject to change without notice and vary during festivals, holidays and high impact periods.

Tennessee Williams also spent a good part of his early life in Clarksdale. Many of his characters in his plays are based on real life people from here. Clarksdale plays host to the annual Tennessee Williams Festival every year.

Morgan Freeman's Ground Zero Blues Club is located in Clarksdale. Another popular juke joint is Red's Blues Lounge on Sunflower Avenue.

Our museums include Delta Blues Museum and the Rock & Blues Museum.

Hambone Art Gallery, Foxtrot Gallery and Lambfish Gallery sell original artwork, as does the Delta Bohemian Gift Shop.

You can have outdoor canoeing adventures with Riverman John Ruskey of Quapaw Canoe Company. Take a day trip with John or an overnight. He can completely outfit you.

Roger Stolle's Cat Head Blues and Folk Art is ground zero for everything you need to know about the blues.

Follow the Mississippi Blues Trail marker guide to navigate historical spots in and around Clarksdale and the Mississippi Delta.

If you come to Clarksdale, you may come for the blues or Tennessee Williams or for the history, but you will come back because of the people!

We have a unique place here. We treasure it. We think you will too. Stay at the most unique place in Clarksdale, the historical Delta Bohemian Guest House which rests in the same spot it was built many years ago.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: Poor William (Billy Howell) and Magical Madge (Madge Marley Howell) own the Delta Bohemian Guest House and The White House. They are the founders of The Delta Bohemian® and Delta Bohemian Tours. They enjoy welcoming people from all over the world to their properties and on their Tours. Madge and Billy were both born in Clarksdale. Billy was raised in Clarksdale and Madge was raised in the country in Tallahatchie County on a farm.

Why the Owner Chose Clarksdale, MS, USA:
You will have the most private and unique place to stay in the City of Clarksdale in a residential neighborhood only 3 blocks from Downtown Clarksdale. You will have a special sanctuary to retreat to when you need to refuel and rest. The home is comfortable, quiet and provides all the comforts you will need during your stay. The DBGH is your home away from home. It is 500 sq ft on each floor. Perfect for being able to get stretch out and relax. One could be taking a nap in the unbelievably comfortable Green Acred Bedroom while the other is downstairs watching one of the many dvds we have or some television. Perhaps you will spend some time in the back yard that is totally enclosed with a brick fence. If you are traveling with other friends staying elsewhere, you can invite them over and have plenty of room to entertain. It just doesn't get any better in Clarksdale than the DBGH. We are eager to welcome you to the Delta Bohemian Guest House.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The home has a unique floor plan, providing plenty of room for guests to seek individual privacy. The living area downstairs is ideal for wonderful conversation. The dining room table is a favorite gathering spot for guests as well as the tin roofed picnic table in the back yard beside the Bohemian Pond and Garden. Your vehicle can be parked in the off street parking in front of our storage building adjacent to the Guest House, street-side in front of the Guest House, or in the covered garage for The White House which is next door to the Guest House. You have a security alarm if you care to use it. Free Wi-Fi. Bedding and Linens are top quality. Breakfast items are included. A welcome PBR (Pabst Blue Ribbon) beer for each adult guest will be waiting in the refrigerator upon your arrival.
