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.

Very relaxing getaway
If you’re looking for something off the beaten path but close to Oxford, this is your spot. Property is very nice and the lake was relaxing. Took the kids on the canoe and just paddled
around with no plan. Both kids caught their very first fish here. The lake house felt like home, it is very comfortable. Has towels, bedding and all the kitchen utensils you may need to cook a big meal. The only draw back for me was the spiders but it’s a lake house in the woods, it wasn’t unexpected. There’s satellite TV in case you want to just be lazy and enjoy a movie with the family. I’m sure if we visit the area again we will stay here again.
Thank you for staying at the Lake House! We are glad you enjoyed the comfortable and relaxing atmosphere. We try to create a rustic experience with all the modern conveniences. We work hard to professionally treat the property for insects, especially spiders, but nature has its way sometimes. We hope to have your family back again!
Nice quiet and in a good location. Had all the amenities we needed.
Right size and location for a get together. Had a quaint look to it with the woodwork. Nice little lake to fish in which we did, caught a few.
Retired Teachers Get-Away
My husband, my dear friend, and myself enjoyed a couple of days in this lovely lake house. All that we needed was available to us --- except some worms for fishing! The place was near Water Valley where we attended a Paul Thorn concert. We enjoyed it so much, in fact, that we really wanted to stay an extra day.
Second stay - As enjoyable as the first
Great unique place to spend time with our family in the area.
Perfect getaway, despite the freezing temperatures.
We were so impressed with this perfect lake house! The pictures on the listing don't do it justice. Unfortunately, we didn't get to enjoy much of the outdoors due to unseasonably cold weather (the boys still played in a baseball tournament in Oxford, though).
The home itself is just adorable! We made use of the grill and well appointed kitchen. Thank you for a great time and we can't wait to visit again soon!
Beautiful, unique, spacious, comfortable
The lake house was perfect for our family getaway. It was fun to stay in a hand crafted home with unique design. It had everything we needed, had privacy yet was close to the beautiful town of Oxford and more.
It was our pleasure to host your family. We look forward to having you visit again!
Stay in a relaxing property that is close to Taylor Grocery and The Ravine restaurants and only 10 minutes to The Oxford Square and Ole Miss
