The space

Our unique property was one of the first houses built on The Rez in the early 1960's. The house is accessed by a quiet cul-de-sac and sits on 4 lots of which 3 are waterfront and the 4th provides a large front yard for privacy and recreation. Three boat slips and a shallow boat launch for small watercraft only adds to the recreation adventures that can be experienced on The Rez without leaving the house. We have made a point to keep the house well maintained, while at the same time keeping the nostalgia and essence that makes it so unique. We hope you enjoy the property!

Interaction with guests

The neighborhood

This is a quiet residential neighborhood on Pelahatchie Bay with mostly full-time homeowners. The neighborhood has a public boat ramp within walking distance of the house, so launching a boat has never been easier. In addition, there is a great walking / biking path that goes for miles at the entrance of the neighborhood if you want to get in your morning cardio.

There is plenty of parking by the property.

Getting around

The house is about 20 minutes from the Jackson airport and major grocery stores, drugstores, and restaurants are just outside of the neighborhood.

Plenty of shopping is also available just a few miles down the road on Lakeland drive in the Dogwood Shopping Center.

The house and location are great! Love the nostalgia of the house! It is a great location for Bass Fishermen that are fishing the Rez. The only drawback is that there is not much parking for trucks and boats. Two trucks and two boats can fit easy in front of the house in the road however without there being an actual driveway in to the house, there isn't enough room for more than two boats without parking along the side of the road. There is a public boat launch right around the corner that is very convenient! Overall it was great! Very clean, lots of space in each bedroom and lots of little extras that make it feel like home!

Will and Janelle have a lovely, well-equipped lake house that our six person group thoroughly enjoyed. Lake view and access was unparalleled. So quiet and had to laugh at geese antics. Kitchen was ample and everything was well thought out. Hope to do it again!

What a great property! Although there was a freak snow and ice storm the weekend we visited, Will and Janelle still exceeded our expectations as hosts. We did not meet them in person, but didn't need to as the instructions they sent us before we arrived were perfect. They also replied almost immediately by text when we had questions, and even recommended a great place to eat dinner. The house was really neat, and the large acreage surrounding the home made it very secluded, peaceful, and serene. The views from the windows were incredible. We arrived when it was dark, so when we woke up in the morning we were pleasantly surprised by how close the bay was to us. We will stay here again, but hopefully next time the weather will be better.

I got excellent arrival instructions and Will was always available within minutes to answer any questions. We were a bit high-maintenance and he was so patient and helpful! This is a spacious, open house especially suitable for families or small groups. The views are lovely and the lakeside is all floor to ceiling windows. Great for bird watching! So peaceful and private. The house is very kid-friendly and well stocked, including extras like games, card tables, extra linens and towels. The kitchen is stocked almost as well as my home kitchen! We'll definitely be back in the summer with our boat.

Thanks do much for allowing to stay at your family retreat it was hard to leave. We flew in from California for our daughters college graduation from JSU. The accommodations were fabulous! The few and the property was astounding! All 12 in the family were comfortable and we were able to have college coaches and friends over for a celebration dinner in which were are the.proud parents of Summa Cum laude graduate. Could not have ask for better place to celebrate as we play games laughed and ate. Everything was there for us to enjoy. I would definitely love to come back again if we are ever in Mississippi. Thanks again a Merry Christmas!!!

We absolutely love this house. My family has used it several times now and enjoy it more each time we stay. The location is great for visiting sites and attractions all over the central Mississippi area. It is close to shopping, dining and fun attractions. It serves our family of six without any problem. The quite neighborhood and park-like yard make it a great place to relax and enjoy friends and family. Will and Janelle are great to work with. They provide clear instructions for check-in and check-out. They communicate very well and go out of their way to make your stay a great one.

Will & Janelle User ProfileWill & Janelle is a superhost.

My family has made memories at this lake house in Brandon, Mississippi for over 3 generations and we look forward to sharing it with you. Our grandparents loved spending time at Turtle Creek and my sister, Janelle, and I learned to water ski on the Ross Barnett Reservoir growing up. We love the outdoors and this is the perfect house to have the best or both worlds and create memories.
