We stayed here as a break on the road from Memphis to New Orleans. The cottage was an absolute gem - sitting out on porch whilst the sun went down was a special memory. Lars was a great host - gave a tour of his farm on our first night. Highly recommend this charming cottage.

About the neighbourhood
Our cottage is located on our family farm that has been in our family for 4 generations. It is a unique farm for the Delta, in that we have preserved a lot of the woodland, and we no-till farm. The original name of the farm is Peacock Plantation, or the Old Peacock Place, and has often been called the 'the prettiest place in the delta'. We are also centrally located in regards to the Blues Trail, and to the Delta in general. We are perfectly located for a home base from which to explore the Delta, and an ideal location for hunting trip to the Delta.
