New Bed & Breakfast along the Natchez Trace Parkway: Kickstand Cottage

Summertime is officially here, and there isn’t a better time to get out and enjoy the Natchez Trace Parkway! If you’re setting your sights on the numerous opportunities for recreation along one of the country’s greatest scenic byways, you’ll be sure to have fun no matter how you choose to spend your day. However, when the sun sinks down below the oaks and pines, even the most intrepid of travelers will probably start to wonder where they can find some well-deserved rest.
