Cute cottage within easy access to Clarksdale's live music

  • 5 of 5

My sister, her husband, and I spent four days in this adorable Clarksdale, MS cottage during our adventure on the MS Blues Trail. Everything is cozy and comfy, and you could definitely walk to live music if you wanted. Clarksdale is the perfect location for exploring the MS Blues Trail as there is live music somewhere nearly every night of the week. It's also close to Memphis and was the largest town in MS we encountered on our journey. Cleveland, MS is not far and is a must-visit to see the MS Grammy Museum, one of the best museums I've been through. The cottage can be a bit tricky to find in the dark, so try to plan your arrival for daylight. This was a terrific place to say, and I would definitely stay there again.

Perfect setting - we were immersed in the culture of Clarksdale. Loved sitting in the yard, drinking my morning coffee.

Best house in Clarksdale!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time to stay in Johnnie Be Good house and we love it. It's very well stocked. And the beds are comfortable and the decor is very home like with great art work from local artists. Great location and the owner is super quick to respond with any questions. We'll be back!

Great place, close to Ground Zero!

  • 4 of 5

Great little cottage located across the street from a lovely park--a good place to walk. The cottage is only about a ten minute walk from the music. We had an issue with the oven and the caretaker was there in a few minutes. My son and I traveled together and the half bath in one of the bedrooms provided privacy for us both. I would choose to stay there again.

Clarksdale is mecca for the blues lovers. Incredible music, juke joints, blues festivals and jams happening throughout the week. Follow the blues trail to the historic sights like the Stovall plantation where Muddy Waters grew up, the Hopson Plantation and Sonny Boy Williamson's II gravesite. Don't miss the Delta Blues Museum. Take a guided canoe trip on the Mississippi and fish for catfish. Try out BBQ and southern cooking at the local restaurants.
