Ft open floor plan features unique art and a blend of contemporary and antique furnishings. The loft has one king bed and one queen bed with two couches and a glider ( for those of you who are not southern, that is a daybed that swings!) a full bathroom with large shower, laundry room, full kitchen and rooftop terrace for watching the incredible sunsets.

About H.C. "Chris" Porter

I'm a native Mississippian and a professional artist. I started my studio in 1987 in Jackson and after 20 years moved to Vicksburg. I was drawn by the historic building and the river views! My artwork reflects my love of Mississippi and its rich cultural and blues heritage.

H.C. "Chris" Porter purchased this condo in 2006

Why H.C. "Chris" Porter chose Vicksburg

My contemporary southern loft is above my signature art gallery in historic downtown Vicksburg on the main street, Washington St. Washington St. is also the Blues Highway, Highway 61,which runs from Memphis to New Orleans. I have found Vicksburg to be a welcoming, artsy, historic and charming town. I have found my home here, but I travel often and am able to share my loft/home while I am away.

What makes this condo unique

I've been told Mississippi is the last mysterious state in the Union! Vicksburg is a wonderful place to explore Mississippi's unique and historic past. My loft is 3 minutes from the National Military Civil War Park, one block above our riverfront murals, three blocks from the Court House Museum and two blocks from our Mississippi River Museum. The award winning, local shopping, dining and sightseeing is all surrounding my loft. Newly opened, the only rooftop dining/bar in Mississippi is located across the street, 10 South, with it's tenth story view of the River and downtown Vicksburg (just in case my three story private roof terrace isn't enough!) I have created an artist's dream home and it is my pleasure to share it with you!

Perfect weekend in Vicksburg!

  • 5 of 5

Chris's loft is so convenient to all that we love in Vicksburg. It was wonderful to have her well-appointed kitchen --we found everything needed! The art, books and furnishings make for a warm, inviting space to relax and entertain. We appreciated the on-street parking steps from the door which made bringing in luggage and groceries a breeze. Downtown is so walkable, we found ourselves stepping out for coffee, off to visit our kiddos in their home, touring Catfish Row and poking through Lorelei Books and other shops giving us time to slow down and stretch our legs. With Hwy. 61 entering town just a few blocks upriver, we took a road trip into the Delta with its open country, red buds and fields and small towns. We are appreciative to Chris for generously sharing her loft the way one friend would open their home to another.

Perfect spot to enjoy Vicksburg

  • 5 of 5

From the moment my family arrived, we enjoyed our stay! Mary welcomed us and was very thorough in providing details to the loft. Throughout the weekend, we continued to discover unique art pieces and furniture that added to the loft's beauty! The location was in walking distance of wonderful eateries, shops and tourist attractions! My husband, three teenage boys, and myself will recommend the Loft to everyone!

This was an amazing space to live in for a week!

  • 5 of 5

We loved being surrounded by such amazing, stimulating art everywhere we looked! The loft was very clean, inviting and eclectic, well-stocked with all essentials. Our only disappointment was that the weather did not cooperate for us to enjoy the rooftop deck.

Great Overnight Visit!

We thoroughly enjoyed the property. The open loft apartment provided tons of space but still felt cozy. Great location. Would recommend to anyone planning on a visit to beautiful Vicksburg!

Great For Families

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with my family of 4 for Thanksgiving and had a wonderful time. The loft is spacious and comfortable with everything great about Vicksburg right out the front door. We felt right at home and the owner and her staff were great in making us feel welcome and taken care of. The kitchen is well-equipped for eating in, or in the alternative there are great restaurants and coffee shops in easy walking distance.
