Stumbled on this little gem when my Ole Miss daughter asked me to come for a last minute quick visit. Cart Barn is southern country comfort and Kay, the owner, is amazing and brims with hospitality and care for her guests. The rooms are large and spacious, quiet and the breakfasts looked out of this world - I didn't eat with Kay as my daughter was in Oxford and wanted every meal with her, but saw the people who did and the plates looked incredible. Kay also knows the area around her very well and offered up great suggestions for us in Oxford too. I will be back! Lori - Dallas, Texas

Spent the weekend with my husband at this B&B. What a surprise at the detail and cleanliness of this place. The Innkeeper, Kim is a keeper. She made sure every need was meet. She went above and beyond to make sure that we were comfortable. Breakfast was outstanding. We will definantly be returning soon. Thanks for a job well done.

A fun stay at the Cart Barn Inn

My wife and I decided to visit our son at Ole Miss on a football weekend. After looking at all of the chain options which included drives of 50 miles or more or a 2 star room we happened on the Cart Barn Inn. What a delight. Marc our hostess went out of her way to ensure her guests had a pleasant stay. The rooms were spacious and well appointed. The bed was very comfortable and the shower nice and strong. After 8 hours on the road it was a great place to stay. We would highly recommend the Cart Barn Inn to anyone traveling to this area. A little bit of a drive to Oxford but much better than a chain hotel.

Great place!
