“Don't believe the hype”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2012

We had planned to stay two nights, but Jody (manager) messed that up....thank goodness, because one night was enough! The gas logs in each room of Mrs Aubrey's did not work. Jody said there were electric heaters we could use. Only one worked so we were quite cold in December. We found a dead rat under the kitchen sink and rat pellets throughout the cabin, including the bedsheets. I would not touch anything in the kitchen for health's sake. We also found bath towels in bathroom from previous occupants, so cabin had probably not been cleaned. I love camping and have stayed in cleaner state park cabins for a much cheaper price. Don't get me wrong..I love MS, I love the Delta, and love anyone's attempt to preserve a piece of history, but still no excuse for filth and poor management.

Room Tip: Bring your own linens, towels, and Kitchen utensils( even glasses and coffee mugs). Ensure that ever...

Stayed here for one night on our way down south ,it was a good experience ,I assume if you are intending a stay here you would have an idea of what not to expect ,it is not a five star hotel ,but the places are clean the showers and air conditioning all worked fine,they are all decorated in period style ,there were six of us and we had three units between us so we had our own little community,although we could have all fitted into one .nice to see loads of humming birds buzzing around the site ,spent a peacfull night chilling out on the porch ,take some beer with you as the bar was not open.
We could have stayed in any number of faceless hotels but this was a good choice and a good memory...recommended

The Tallahatchie Flats are impressive and historically fascinating. Unfortunately the airconditioning did not work/had no effect in a very damp/moldy house... the humidity was a bit too much for this traveller and it took away from the experience.

We loved our stay at Tallahatchie Flats - it remains one of the best experiences of our US trip.
This accomodation is not for everyone, if you like modern hotels with no character then this place is not for you, but if you want the quintessential Mississippi cotton plantation experience, and are not afraid of something a little different then give this a go.
The shacks, are just that - shacks. Ours had 2 bedrooms, a fully working kitchen and a small but adequate bathroom ( the shower is pretty tiny, but plenty strong and hot enough). The shacks are also decorated to reflect what they are eg wallpapered with old newspapers, or left rustic.
They also have a front and back porch where you can sit and watch the cotton grow.

We were really torn about this place. The location was wonderful. The cabins sitting there along the river and among fields was a priceless setting. It was rustic and we were expecting that. The beds were comfortable and clean.

We really just had one big issue. The kitchen. Rustic and quaint is wonderful, but when it comes to food preparation we weren't interested. The kitchen in Aubrey's House was full of 70's looking rusty junky appliances. I understand the "rustic", but these appliances aren't of the era that the "look" is supposed to be. So, they just looked like junky appliances. I would say that if the appliances don't have the 40's era look, go ahead and put in a new mini-fridge and microwave and maybe even an expensive modern stove.

I hate to say that, as we loved the place otherwise, but that is how we felt. We ate out for dinner and breakfast.

Oh my goodness this was a fun experience! The owners have restored and preserved old sharecropper cabins to stay in. They have so much of the original structure! So much history and so amazing to think about who has slept under the roof before you. Wonderful location near a supposed grave of Robert Johnson. The experience was magical! It was amazing to cook my supper there.

Room Tip: We loved Tush Hog's cabin!
