16 Murphey Road is conveniently located 8 miles from Batesville, MS which hosts quaint shopping, like Stubbs Department store or many of the antique shops in the area. During the Christmas Season, The Train to Christmas Town is extremely popular as people come from miles and miles to bring their children in their “jammies” to ride the express train to see Santa Clause!The Batesville Walmart is a short drive from the cabin.

The food in the area is some of Mississippi’s finest dining…from the 5 star restaurants in Oxford (20 miles) to the World Famous Como Steak house (12 miles) where reservations are always encouraged for parties of 8 or more. If there are fewer than 8, be sure to get there early!

Finding things to do will have your family and friends all being made happy as within 2-25 miles there is something for everyone. Be sure to visit the Oxford Square which has many small boutique shops, bookstores, Neilson’s Department Store and numerous restaurants from which to choose! When your day is over, come back to the cabin and relax on the Screened-In Porch with a glass of wine or an ice-cold beer reminiscing about your unforgettable day in Oxford, home to the Ole Miss Rebels at the University of Mississippi! Game day and tailgating in the stadium is legendary.

For those of you who would rather enjoy the Recreational activities in the Sardis Dam area, there are walking trails, children’s playgrounds and volleyball courts in the John W. Kyle State Park, you might find yourself fishing at the spillway or maybe even off the cabin’s dock. Bring your boat and enjoy tubing and skiing on the lower lake where most of the time, the water is as “smooth as glass”! Catch the rays on the beaches, too! The Sardis Lake Marina is 3-4 minutes from the cabin; the public boat ramp is about 3 minutes from the cabin. During crappie season, the cabin has had the privilege of hosting fishermen from MI, KS, KY, NY, AR, LA, IL, MO, OK, TX, MI, MS, SD, ND, NJ, OH, GA and AL just to name a few.

If the Casino peeks your interest, they are just a few miles up the road in Tunica and Always remember that Elvis’s Graceland is about 45 miles from the lake house.

The Aycock’s have been renting their “home away from home” for many years and consistently have happy guests who return year after year. Within the ambiance of the lake house and the area attractions, your time with your family and loved ones will go down as one of your friend’s and family’s favorite memories.

Why Cal Aycock chose Sardis

We decided on Sardis Lake because of its location to Memphis. From Memphis take I55 South for approx 45 minutes. We picked the lower lake because it feels like we have own private lake with 4 sandy beaches. Less than 5 minutes from our cabin is the marina and upper lake.

What makes this cabin unique

We enjoy being able to shop in Oxford or Batesville in a matter of minutes.

We are one of the few cabins on the water with a covered boat house.

24' Avalon Pontoon boat available for rent. Call 901-870-1101 for details.

Wonderful Famiky Reunion Home

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of renting the Aycock's lake home on Sardis lake for the University of Mississippi 2017 graduation. It was perfect fir the 11 of us. It is decorated beautifully and has a nice screen porch with a lake view. We had a wonderful time and have lots of family memories to add to our bank. Thanks Cal.

Comfortable but...

  • 4 of 5

We rented this cabin for weekend to attend daughter's graduation in May 2018. The cabin was nice, clean, and was large enough to fit the entire family. The boat dock and the boat were in need of TLC but since we were not going to use them, it did not affect our stay. The gorgeous picture of the lake is may be of a different part of the lake, I am not sure but our view was not similar to the picture.

The main issue we had was the air conditioner did not cool the downstairs properly. Repairman came Saturday morning, the compressor had gone out. During discussions with my husband, the owner volunteered to refund part of our stay for the inconvenience. I have contacted the owner through email and 2 billing cycles later we are still waiting on the refund which the owner volunteered.

Great space for a quiet lake get away!

  • 5 of 5

The house was fantastic for a girls weekend getaway - comfortably slept 6 of us and had everything we needed. Location was easy to get to the lake (we rented a boat from the Sardis Marina!) but still easy to get to Oxford to spend some time on the square.

The facilities.

  • 4 of 5

The home was very comfortable for our large family. All the extras was definitely a plus. Having bathroom facilities in proper working order was great with a large group of people. Central location was very convenient . The door knobs gave us a little trouble.

This property was the best. We had a quite 4 night stay with friends, enjoying a trip into Oxford and Batesville for shopping. Enjoyed having wifi, TV will many channels to choose from. It was nice to be able to watch movies since it was so cold outside. The kitchen had everything you could possibly need. Decided to made gumbo, they even had a rice cooker. I would highly recommend this property. The owner was so easy to work with. We are already planning out next weekend get a way to this awesome cabin.

Met our needs well and loves the porch!

  • 4 of 5

We had a party of 6 and we came in November. Enjoyed the fabulous screened in porch! Lots of comfy places to sit and watch football. Close to Oxford for shopping and eating. The neighbors dogs did bark a good amount, but mostly during the day.

We loved our stay, the house met all of our needs and was very comfortable!
