About Daniel Barfield

Daniel Barfield and Family are Oxford residents of 15 years. We wanted a place to get away to on the weekends and we found our 'Retreat' where we stay when time allows.

Daniel Barfield purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Daniel Barfield chose Taylor

We fell in love with the property's unique cottage and combination of woods, pastures and lake. You can relax watching the sunset over the lake. We also enjoy walking the property to enjoy its beautiful scenery and wildlife.

What makes this cottage unique

Southern-style elegant location that affords peace and quiet while being surrounded by nature. The views are beautiful and perfect location for vacation, family gathering or football weekend. Easy access to Oxford & Ole Miss, but far enough to get away. A short drive to great restaurants, including Grit, Taylor Grocery and The Ravine.

Beautiful, unique, spacious, comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The lake house was perfect for our family getaway. It was fun to stay in a hand crafted home with unique design. It had everything we needed, had privacy yet was close to the beautiful town of Oxford and more.

Right size and location for a get together. Had a quaint look to it with the woodwork. Nice little lake to fish in which we did, caught a few.

My husband, my dear friend, and myself enjoyed a couple of days in this lovely lake house. All that we needed was available to us --- except some worms for fishing! The place was near Water Valley where we attended a Paul Thorn concert. We enjoyed it so much, in fact, that we really wanted to stay an extra day.

Perfect getaway, despite the freezing temperatures.

  • 5 of 5

We were so impressed with this perfect lake house! The pictures on the listing don't do it justice. Unfortunately, we didn't get to enjoy much of the outdoors due to unseasonably cold weather (the boys still played in a baseball tournament in Oxford, though).

The home itself is just adorable! We made use of the grill and well appointed kitchen. Thank you for a great time and we can't wait to visit again soon!

Great girls weekend!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time on a recent Girls Weekend (with my mom, sisters, and daughter) at this rental. It is close enough to Oxford to enjoy all of the shopping and restaurants, yet definitely has a quiet, retreat vibe. The owners were fabulous to deal with, very accommodating when we had to change our plans and very understanding when we lost the key!(we later found it!). Highly recommend this beautiful cabin! As for feedback, it would be nice to have hand rails in the downstairs bathroom shower as it is quite a big step in and out.

We will definitely come back and look forward to it! Thank you so much!!
