Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: My husband and I both graduated from MSU and had always dreamed of having a place in our 'favorite small town'. We have 3 girls who love our MSU and the Cowbell Cottage:)

Why the Owner Chose Starkville, MS, USA:
We knew we wanted a small cottage that had charm and easy access to the university and downtown. I fell in love with the beautiful hard wood floors, claw foot tub, front porch and shaded back yard....We knew it was the one!!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We love to walk to games or even walk to the shuttle if we are looking for a shorter walk. We bring our own groceries, cook out and feel like we are still living the Bulldog experience even when we are at the cottage. We have 3 kids, so we love how we can spread out and they can run around in the back yard playing games!! It's quaint, close to campus and very charming....the kind of place I would love to stay when I visit Starkvegas!!
