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.

The newest of those retreats is the Kickstand Cottage Bed and Breakfast in Baldwyn, MS. Located near Tupelo, the small B&B is a family-friendly operation which welcomes all guests, but offers special amenities which may prove extra useful to those traveling by bicycle or motorcycle. Particularly for those peddling down the Natchez Trace, Kickstand Cottage offers a shuttle service to and from the Trace, along with safe and secure overnight storage of bicycles and gear. You can find more information about offers and amenities HERE.
An evening around the campfire is a perfect way to wind down a day on the Trace.

If you’re looking for quiet place to recharge along the Trace, Kickstand Cottage will fit the bill. The B&B is only fifteen minutes from Tupelo, MS and four miles from the Natchez Trace itself. Still, it is just enough off the beaten path to insure that you’ll enjoy a quiet evening around the fire pit and the farm-fresh breakfast awaiting you in the morning. So next time you go adventuring along the Trace, be sure to check out the byway’s newest B&B, the Kickstand Cottage in Baldwyn, MS.
