About the property

Lakefront cabin; 2 BRs;1 Bath; near MSU, Old Waverly, West Point, and Columbus

Nestled among tall plantation pines and fronting a scenic, serene lake, Amity Cabin invites you to enjoy time away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Situated on a 400 acre plantation pine farm, Amity's guests enjoy the beauty of the land, the bounty of its 35 acre well-stocked lake, and the peace and quiet of a private farm. Whether looking for well-earned R&R, planning a hunt for whitetail deer or turkey, enjoying our lake for your own fishing pleasure, attending a rousting MSU sports event, golfing at near-by Old Waverly, 'pilgrimaging' in Columbus or Aberdeen or just wanting to kick back and do nothing, Amity Cabin is the perfect country destination.

A completely renovated sharecropper's cabin, Amity blends modern comfort with cabin life. Sip your morning coffee or evening refreshment relaxing in a rocker on Amity’s wide front porch. Watch the sun wake up the day; wrap yourself up in the beauty of Amity’s sunsets. Answer the lake’s call to fish for crappie, bass or bream. Grill your morning catch for dinner and for dessert? Roast marshmallows in the outdoor chiminea for delicious s’mores. We even provide you with some firewood.

Step inside Amity. The front door opens into the living and dining area complete with a 40” flat screen TV and DVD player. Amity’s kitchen features all new appliances including a dishwasher, plenty of counter space for family meal preparation, pots, pans, dishes, eating and cooking utensils – even a fresh roll of paper towels. Don’t want to cook? Let us do the cooking: we have yummy catering available.

End your day in one of Amity’s two bedrooms. Select the king bed in one or grab a bunk or the queen bed in the other bedroom. We supply all of the linens and a basket of blankets for cooler evenings. The living room sofa opens into an extra queen bed for two more guests. The new bath has a tub/shower combo. Don’t worry about bringing any linens: Amity has plenty.

Ready to enjoy a few days away from it all? Reserving Amity Cabin is just a few clicks away.

About Elizabeth

A missionary kid turned physician met a native Mississippian on the internet -- and the rest is history. When we married, we consolidated households and moved to the country. Anam Cara, our farm, (Celtic for 'soul friend') has been our home since 2006 and we enjoy the expansive 400+ acres, the natural beauty of the Lake (Amity is situated across the lake from our home), and the glorious trees that surround us. Amity was a broken-down cabin when we purchased Anam Cara. Recently we decided to renovate it to share the serenity and beauty with others. Many guests have already experienced the beauty and serenity that surrounds Amity Cabin. We hope you will enjoy it, too.

Elizabeth purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Elizabeth chose Aberdeen

Mississippi is our home! When we first glimpsed Anam Cara, there was no question that this is where we wanted to live. Amity Cabin enjoys all of the beauty and tranquility of Anam Cara, and now we can share both with new friends.

What makes this cabin unique

To borrow a phrase, Amity Cabin is a little piece of heaven for those who enjoy the tranquility and beauty of country life. Whether rocking on the front porch or enjoying the comforts of the cabin itself, friends will find a place where they can relax and just be themselves.

Perfect cabin for some quiet time with our son with all the comforts of home! Fully stocked kitchen allowed me to cook all meals to fill my son's belly! Comfy beds, very clean. Elizabeth was a gem... she met us to familiarize us with the property and then gave us total privacy to enjoy our family time. So quiet and relaxing...❤

Rustic Beauty

  • 5 of 5

We loved sharing Thanksgiving and football with our kids at Amity cabin, We were greeted each morning with the sun rising over the lake while we were cozy and warm inside on extra comfy beds. My husband and I enjoyed the many trails through the woods (while the kids slept in!). The kitchen was well stocked and we cooked all our meals. You realize quickly how much you are "in the country" by the quiet and stillness. It was a great place for playing games, fishing, roasting marshmallows, and star watching. Amazing sunsets! The host, Elizabeth, was very helpful and a pleasure to communicate with.

A true haven for rest and relaxation

  • 5 of 5

Amity Cabin: The location, facility, and hospitality at Amity Cabin are superb! If you are looking for a location to get real rest and recharge for batteries you won’t find a better place. Located in east-central Mississippi, the solitude and isolation provide you with the healing environment that lets you enjoy the only visitors you’ll have … deer, raccoons, owls, hawks, herons, martins, turtles, doves and many more. Fresh fish are definitely on the menu. Even a person with minimal fishing skills is bound to catch plenty to eat every day you wish. Great hiking trails in a completely safe environment provide exercise. The cabin is immaculate and well furnished with modern conveniences. TV was our window to the outside world if we wished, but we preferred to watch four-legged foxes. Elizabeth and Earl are wonderful, friendly and gracious hosts … we found them amazingly responsive. I recommend Amity Cabin highly and give it five stars.

Peace and Relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

Elizabeth was extremely accomodating! If you had an issue or needed anything, she will bring it asap! We had absolutely no disturbances. Pure bliss and peace! The only noises you will hear out here are birds chirping, frogs singing to each other, and water trickling in the creek. We also had a little visitor...a fluffy rabbit! I needed this getaway to recharge due to being a mom to 5 kids, a family nurse practitioner student, and a full time travel infusion nurse! The bed was VERY comfy! My husband and I fished a total of 26 plus hours and caught 30 plus small bass. We released them all back to grow! Be sure to bring all your food as Walmart is a bit aways! I totally suggest this cabin to everyone! Clean, peaceful, and the owners are terrific! We will definitely be returning soon! Oh yeah, rent the boat! Well worth it if you love to fish! My husband and I had a great time, and much needed quality bonding! Perfect place to rekindle relationships!
