ShadowlawnHe was traveling for his job, and he’d brought along his wife Julia and young son. He needed a good place to put them up while he went south to attend to urgent affairs. They had their choice of accommodations, Julia loved the place they found, and he felt good about where he’d left them.

General U.S. Grant had no idea that in his absence Confederates would raid the town of Holly Springs where the Union Army kept its supplies. However, while raiders torched and burned millions of dollars of supplies, the soldiers did not intrude on Julia Grant’s private quarters in the town’s most handsome mansion.

Cartney Hunt HouseThat’s how it is when you’re a guest in the Mississippi Hills. Our hospitality is unshakeable, inviolate and unmatched. A lot has changed since the Grants stayed here, but we’ve preserved our good graces and many of our graceful homes, which means today you can stay in some of the most beautiful bed and breakfasts around. Like the General’s Quarters in Corinth, two magnificently restored Victorians connected by lush gardens and sitting pretty in the town’s historic district. At the antebellum Amzi Love, enjoy warm smiles and a cool drink beside the reflecting pool at this belle of the Columbus pilgrimage.

Court Square InnMaybe you’d enjoy the log lodge at Brigadoon Farms in Olive Branch, the rustic charm of the Blue Creek Cabin in Oxford, or staying on the square in downtown Holly Springs at the Court Square Inn Bed & Breakfast. If you want four-star hotel luxury, we’ve got that, too, or if you’re traveling on a budget, we’ve got plenty of welcome options. Elvis and Priscilla Presley honeymooned here, and today the stars still come out over the multitude of campgrounds and RV parks.

However you like your accommodations, one thing’s certain:  You and the Mississippi Hills are going to get along like a house afire.
