A Brief History...
The exterior of Cedar Grove has not changed much since the days of Absalom Sharp. A drawing of the home, done in the mid-1800's, highly resembles what you'll see today as you come through the gas-lit gates. The interior is a bit of a different story. The ballroom upstairs has long since been divided into bedrooms, first for the children who came to live in the house when it was a boy's home in the 1870's. The home was designated as such in the will of the original owners of Cedar Grove in the memory of their three boys who had all perished before the age of three.
Upon entering the front door, one sees the foyer and stairway. Doorways lead to the kitchen and the parlor. Of great interest is the spiral stairway in another main floor room; a sort of "side entrance" to what was the ballroom. The first floor also holds the dining room and a study. Breakfast is served in the dining room of the Main House, and the entire ground floor is open to our Bed & Breakfast guests.
The acres of Cedar Grove now have a working cattle farm. There are over a mile of walking trails through native Mississippi woods where you can find the 19th century cemetery of the Sharp family. You can also enjoy walking through pastures watching beautiful black angus cattle graze.
Breakfast is freshly prepared and served in the Main House each morning. Sit among guests at the formal dining table or in the breakfast room with a view!
Upon your arrival, enjoy a complimentary glass of wine! Glasses are provided in the room. Coffee is always available in the kitchen!
You're sure to get a good night's sleep here at Cedar Grove. With the countryside and newly renovated accommodations, you'll feel as if you're home - away from home.
