About Kate B, Joe S, Local contact: Patty Johnson

We enjoy traveling, camping and meeting new acquaintances on our travels. We particularly enjoy the all that the Delta, and the "Americana Music Triangle" has to offer; the history, southern charm, culture, and particularly the Blues music. The local music venues, and small spontaneous jams are great!

We would like to share our cozy, comfy home with others traveling in this region.

Why Kate B, Joe S, Local contact: Patty Johnson chose Clarksdale

LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION !! We love our quiet, historic neighborhood, and close proximity to downtown, as well as our patio, and landscaped backyard. We travel with our dogs and wanted a place for them, as well as us, to feel at home, be comforfortable, and safe. We allow pets, upon approval, and adhere to a strict pet policy.

What makes this cottage unique

Again, our newly renovated home provides a clean, comfy, AND well appointed HOME stocked with all the basic amenities. One can "hit the ground running" whether you desire to take a 5 minute stroll downtown, tour the Delta, OR just want to stay home, relax, and enjoy our wonderful neighborhood.

Nestled in love and care. This little chateau is "where it's at". Excuse the grammar. Getaway, girls trip...whatever, it's a perfect fit. The place is etched to perfection. I can't wait to return. Bless the owners vision. Location is in the heart of everything. So don't worry about moving your car. Just to sum it's a home away from home. Oh before I forget....all of the amenities are fit to please a king and queen....and if you have children, there's a nice fenced yard.

Clean, comfortable and well equipped

  • 5 of 5

We've rented at 4 different places in Clarksdale and this by far is our top choice. Quiet neighborhood. One of the best equipped rental we've ever had. Hardly even had to break into our kit. A short walk to many of the downtown Clarksdale venues. We'll be back here for sure!

This house is PERFECT!!! it is just a short walk to Ground Zero and all the music that you need to see and hear. The house has two great bedrooms and a Awesome shower. Kitchen has a gas stove and oven. Absolutely perfect back yard for grilling out and hanging out on the deck. The screened in front portch is also a great feature. Washer and Dryer. Can't wait to come back next year. We already have our dates picked out and reserved. Best spent money ever. It truly is home away from home.

Great stay at Rusty's Roost!

  • 5 of 5

We came on a company retreat down to Clarksdale in late June and had a lovely stay at Rusty's Roost! It looks exactly like the pictures in the best way possible. Great remodel of the house. Everything was clean, well appointed, and there was excellent air conditioning. It felt like a luxury hotel. Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay in Clarksdale! Would HIGHLY recommend.
