A few years ago I got a Daily Candy email about a Delta roadtrip. Its been on my brain ever since. Specifically this one place to stay, Tallahatchie Flats. They put together a bunch of old sharecropper cabins to make a nice little inn.
The cabins are very quaint, yet have everything you really need. Towels, comfy bed, AC/heat, even a full kitchen. Added benefits: nightly bonfires, a front porch for sitting, a friendly lab, stars to gaze at, and a river in your backyard. These aren’t amenities you can get just anywhere.
Here are a few photos:
We only stayed one night on this trip, which is sort of sad. Next time we will plan to stay two nights and possibly bring some friends. Its a great place to retreat from the hecticness of everyday life, to get to know some good country folks, and see another way of living.
Up next: What to do and what not to see in the Delta.
