About Lesley Walkington

Originally from Jackson, Mississippi, I grew up visiting Oxford to see family and friends. My father was born in Oxford and my grandfather attended Ole Miss.

After living in Nashville, Tennessee and San Diego, California for many years, I decided it was time to get back to my Southern roots. Luckily, my California surfer-dude husband loves cornbread, sweet iced tea, fried chicken, pecan pie, and sittin' on our front porch swing!

Lesley Walkington purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Lesley Walkington chose Oxford

Great location! It's walking distance to the Square and Grove.

What makes this cottage unique

This house is a craftsman-style bungalow with lots of charm and the best location in town. It sits on half an acre in the heart of Oxford's Historic District. You can walk everywhere -- one block to Rowan Oak, four blocks to the Square and minutes away from the Grove. It also offers flexibility in living spaces. The main house is separated from the cottage by a screened porch where guests can gather. The Cottage has a large back deck for relaxing and grilling out. There's plenty of off-street parking which is a big bonus on ballgame weekends.

Cozy accommodations; great location

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place to stay for an Ole Miss football weekend! Quiet, safe neighborhood that's walking distance to the Square, the Grove, and Vaught-Hemingway Stadium.

We parked our car on Friday afternoon and didn't start it up again until Sunday morning.

The house was very clean and had all the necessities for an enjoyable stay. We definitely recommend this place.

An excellent and tidy place in Oxford

  • 5 of 5

Eight of us shared the house (house only - not the cottage) for an Ole Miss baseball weekend, and we all fit perfectly well. The house is very well located in a quiet neighborhood, in easy walking distance to the Square and campus. It's very spiffy - well appointed, and comfortable. Excellent beds, clean linens, plenty of towels, classy decor. We were very pleased - I would definitely recommend the Walkington House!

One surprise: the cottage is fully attached to the back of the house - not physically separate from it.
