Photos and Description of the Greater Belhaven vacation cottage rental

2 bedroom 2 bath near hospitals and universities

Blocks from Jackson Mississippi's Belhaven University, Milsaps College, Baptist Hospital, University Medical Center, St. Dominic's Hospital, and VA Medical Center. One block away from Sophia's Restaurant and Fairview Inn Bed and Breakfast.

Three levels. Top floor contains one bedroom with queen bed and one bath with a large Jacuzzi tub. A door in the bedroom opens to a small balcony on the outside. There is a tv in the bedroom as well as one mounted from ceiling in the bathroom for tub viewing. We have a rollaway twin cot upstairs if you would like your little one to sleep with you.

Main floor has a modern kitchen featuring granite countertops, travertine tile, and stainless appliances. Also on main floor is a spacious living room with large tv. Doors in the living room open to a small outside patio which is equipped with a barbque.

House has a basement which has a full bath and laundry room. Beware: the basement is for short people; if you are over 6' tall you might want to duck in the basement! There is a king bed in the basement.

Not wheelchair accessible. See photos: there is a really cool but narrow spiral staircase leading to bedroom on second floor.

Note: I charge a $75 cleaning fee. I charge you what it costs me to ensure a clean place for you to stay. Whether your stay is a night or a week, it costs us the same to do a top to bottom cleaning of the house. We do not skimp on cleaning because we know you wouldn't want to stay in a place which does; we appreciate your understanding!

Belhaven Neighborhood or 'The Greater Belhaven Area', often simply called 'Belhaven', is a neighborhood located in Jackson, Mississippi. Belhaven Neighborhood is named after Belhaven University, one of Jackson's oldest institutions of higher learning, the main campus of which is located on a forty-two acre plot of land within the neighborhood itself. Belhaven is a historic district and one of Jackson's oldest neighborhoods and cultural centers as well as home to many of the city's oldest houses and buildings. Many popular and successful locally owned businesses are located within Belhaven, including a number of restaurants, shops, stores, and a Bed and Breakfast inn. Belhaven is considered to be one of the most architecturally diverse neighborhoods in the United States, much of which can be seen through the Greater Belhaven Neighborhood Architectural Tour.

The area now known as Belhaven Neighborhood or 'The Greater Belhaven Area', then located to the north of Jackson city limits, remained largely unsettled until shortly after the American Civil War. Many Jackson residents, seeking refuge after the destruction and chaos wrought by Union soldiers during and after the Siege of Jackson, moved northward and began rebuilding their homes. In 1894, what is now Belhaven University was chartered by Dr. Lewis Fitzhugh as the 'Belhaven College for Young Ladies' in a house located Boyd Street in what is now Belhaven Heights. In 1910, the school burned down but was reopened in 1911 as 'Belhaven Collegiate and Industrial Institute' at its current location on Peachtree Street. In 1915, the school was renamed 'Belhaven College'. Subsequently, residents began referring to the area around the school as 'The Belhaven Neighborhood' or simply 'Belhaven'. Over the years the name has extended to include what became known as Belhaven Heights. Today, the use of the name 'Belhaven' can refer to 'The Greater Belhaven Area' (meaning both 'Belhaven' and 'Belhaven Heights', Belhaven University, or both.

Fortification Street, which runs East and West through Belhaven, is paved over what was once one of the last Confederate battle lines during the Siege of Jackson. Although most structures in Jackson were burned by Union soldiers employing a Scorched Earth Policy during and after the siege (under the direction of General Ulysses S. Grant), many of Belhaven's older structures remained untouched.

Next to Belhaven, the Fondren District is one of the funkiest, hippest places to enjoy great food, wonderful shopping, fashions, art, original pieces, vintage merchandise, fabulous homes, healthy living, and the coolest vibe around the Capitol city. You can find it all, in Fondren! Just click around our site - proudly advertising Fondren Mississippi businesses since 2004.
