About this listing

This comfortable, art-filled home in the historic Belhaven neighborhood is central to much of what Jackson has to offer. Many guests exclaim over the "great night's sleep" they had at Comfy Room. Please visit and treat yourself to sweet dreams.

The space

My neighborhood, Belhaven, was named one of the Top 10 Neighborhoods in the United States in October 2014, by the American Planning Association.

This is a charming 1939 cottage, and I offer you, if you are 21 and older, a private room with a queen bed and one bath, to share.

The room is a cheery yellow with three windows and a queen-size bed, always fitted with crisp, soft cotton sheets. There is a ceiling fan, which is operated by remote control. Don't worry about towels, as I provide them. Forgot your shampoo? Relax, I have some for you.

Help yourself to bread or toast with butter and jelly and coffee, tea and milk! If you have any special requests, please let me know, and I will try to accommodate.

In the den, you will find a television with cable, and wifi is available.

There is plenty of free parking on the street.

Please fill out your profile completely and include a photo, ESPECIALLY if you have no or only one or two reviews. You must be at least 21 years of age.

Guest access

You will have access to all common areas of the house, and in nice weather, I hope you will enjoy the front porch.

Interaction with guests

Depending on my schedule, as well as yours, I might be available to show you around town. I am always available, though, to answer questions and make suggestions.

Other things to note

Please fill out your profile completely and include a photo, ESPECIALLY if you have no or only one or two reviews.

House Rules
No smoking
No parties or events

I am fairly laid back and have only a few ground rules.
*I work 8 a.m.-5 p.m., so check-in time is when I get home or when I take my lunch hour, which is flexible.
*Check out is at 11 a.m., but I will be happy to work with you if you need a place to keep your bags for the afternoon.
*No smoking.
*Please let me know if you would like to use the kitchen to prepare a snack or light meal. I ask that guests clean up after themselves and put dishes in the dishwasher.
*Please no food in the room.
*Please keep the door locked, even if someone is inside.
*No pets, with the possible exception of a clean and well-behaved dog.
*Absolutely no illegal drugs or firearms.
*Please wipe feet well when coming inside.
*If you damage or break anything, or if you have any problem, please let me know immediately.
*Please be considerate to my furniture: no wet items on wood, and, to avoid scratches, please set hard items on something else.
*If you stay at Comfy Room for three nights or more, please feel free to use the washer and dryer, but let me explain how. For shorter visits, a load of wash is $5.00.
*Jackson does not recycle glass, but we do recycle plastics 1 and 2 and clean paper.

Thank you!

Ellen was a wonderful host to my fiance and I. We stayed for a night and she was understanding when we came back in late from our concert. The place is lovely, well decorated, and clean. She made our stay very comfortable and was friendly when we met with her. Definitely recommend staying here!

Ellen User ProfileEllen is a superhost.

I am a native Mississippian and have lived in several cities around the country. I love to listen to great stories, learn, read, write, laugh, dance and linger at the dinner table. I also adore traveling but am unable to do so as much as I would like, so I decided to bring the world to me. That's where you come in . . . to my home. I look forward to meeting you!

I typically do not accept queries without a photo and a full profile, so please let me see and learn about you. Thanks so much.
