About Melanie Barnes

The owners are siblings who grew up on this property.

Melanie Barnes purchased this house in 1958

Why Melanie Barnes chose Mississippi

Our parents purchased this property which had been the County Poor House in 1958 and built this house in 1961.

What makes this house unique

Our mother always liked the unobstructed view over the lake with no neighbors in sight. We think you will too.

We had a great time, beautiful and relaxing. We had everything we needed and really enjoyed our stay. Melanie was quick to respond to all our emails and helped us with all our needs. We would definitely stay here again!

We love to stay here!

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned from our third visit to this property. It is very well supplied, clean, comfy......feels like home! Even better, it is quiet, private and in a lovely setting. It might remind you of the house you grew up in! It is very convenient to MSU. This will always be our first choice for a football weekend.

Wedding weekend

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this house so that we could attend a wedding in Columbus. We had kids and spouses meet us there.The house and property were perfect and beautiful. Everything was ready for us when we got there. The weekend was wonderful with NCAA basketball, a beautiful wedding of wonderful friends, spending time with each other, and even a little cane pole fishing! (all catch and release of course)! We highly recommend this rental property if you need something in this area!

Excellent Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the house for 3 weeks while working on a project in Starkville. Everything was great! It was very clean and cozy. And the fishing was phenomenal! Close to town. Close to campus. But still has a great country feel. Thanks so much for letting us stay.
