This tranquil property has woods, pastures, and a Lakehouse for your enjoyment. The newly renovated 2BR/2 Bath Lakehouse cottage overlooks a 5 acre lake.

The cottage was originally built in 1998 by one of Taylor’s own master carpenters and has beautiful wooden beams throughout the vaulted living room and kitchen area as well as the master bedroom. The master bedroom has a king bed and its own bathroom with a whirlpool tub and shower. The master bedroom has a door leading to the main deck. The guest bedroom also has its own bath with a shower and a queen bed. The guest bedroom has a separate covered deck overlooking the lake. The kitchen has a heart pine bar top that is great for gatherings. The kitchen comes completely furnished with cookware and utensils and includes coffee, cream and sweeteners.

About Daniel Barfield

Daniel Barfield and Family, Oxford residents for 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 Mississippi

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. You can walk the property to enjoy its beautiful scenery and wildlife.

What makes this cottage unique

Peace and quiet. Being surrounded by nature. Beautiful views.

Easy access to Oxford & Ole Miss, but far enough to get away. A short drive to two great restaurants, Taylor Grocery and The Ravine.

Very unique and peaceful place to stay

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely time at this lake cottage. It was comfortable and equipped with all the essentials. It was so peaceful to sip on a glass of wine on the upper balcony and watch the sun go down or come up. My only suggestion would be to wash away the spider webs but I am sure we were the first of the spring season to stay. Thanks.

Lovely location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I went to Oxford to see our great nephew at school. Taylor is a great location. It is away from the hustle and bustle of Oxford but only a few minutes drive to the school. We had fun feeding the bream and turtles right off the dock. It is very peaceful and a good place to watch birds. The house is very comfortable. Daniel was very accommodating. If we ever drive that long 800 miles there again, we will certainly want to stay at the Lakehouse .

30th bday celebration weekend

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your beautiful lake house with our family and friends this past weekend. Everything was beautiful and very well stocked with everything we needed. We had a wonderful weekend. 😀�

Just and FYI ...with the weather changing there are some active wasp nests on the porch area that you might want to spray.

Relax, Unwind, Hike, BBQ, Watch Sports

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful lake home. The home is well-maintained, and stocked with everything you may need. They had coffee, creamer, sugar, charcoal, many spices, all toiletries, board games, cards, satellite TV, dishwasher detergent, laundry soap and softener, and even some dog food for our girl. It is a remote location, but close to Ole Miss so that seeing a game is easy. Beautiful fire pit with plenty of outdoor seating on the lake. It was fun to watch and listen to the geese everyday. We didn't do any fishing, but we saw plenty of fish in the lake. We went to three state parks/national forests. All of them were within a 30 minute drive, and had nice fishing and hiking available. The owners children were adorable. They were very polite. They live on the property, and were down the road playing. Their dog, Marmaduke, was adorable too. He was well-mannered, and curious about our dog. He got along well with her. We would definitely recommend this for a relaxing stay. The owners kept us well-informed prior to our arrival. The house was clean, and a good size.
