About Daniel Barfield

Daniel Barfield and Family are Oxford residents of 15 years. We wanted a place to get away to on the weekends and we found our 'Retreat' where we stay when time allows.

Daniel Barfield purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Daniel Barfield chose Taylor

We fell in love with the property's unique cottage and combination of woods, pastures and lake. You can relax watching the sunset over the lake. We also enjoy walking the property to enjoy its beautiful scenery and wildlife.

What makes this cottage unique

Southern-style elegant location that affords peace and quiet while being surrounded by nature. The views are beautiful and perfect location for vacation, family gathering or football weekend. Easy access to Oxford & Ole Miss, but far enough to get away. A short drive to great restaurants, including Grit, Taylor Grocery and The Ravine.

The perfect long weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect long weekend getaway. Close enough to Oxford for diner and entertainment, yet secluded with woods and space for the kids to play. We will be returning.

Great girls weekend!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time on a recent Girls Weekend (with my mom, sisters, and daughter) at this rental. It is close enough to Oxford to enjoy all of the shopping and restaurants, yet definitely has a quiet, retreat vibe. The owners were fabulous to deal with, very accommodating when we had to change our plans and very understanding when we lost the key!(we later found it!). Highly recommend this beautiful cabin! As for feedback, it would be nice to have hand rails in the downstairs bathroom shower as it is quite a big step in and out.

We will definitely come back and look forward to it! Thank you so much!!

We enjoyed the quiet and seclusion. It’s close enough to explore Memphis and Oxford and not be stressed.

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time at Cypress Woods. The Lake house was charming and a great place for our family to relax. Our dogs loved the wide lawn for playing ball. Loved having the grill and fire pit too! We look forward to staying again!

Rustic and Relaxing

  • 4 of 5

The home was very nice. The rustic style was welcoming and relaxing. My family had a blast fishing and feeding the turtles. Very secluded and private. A great location to relax after enjoying Oxford/Taylor MS.
