Grateful House

Grateful House at High Hope Farms

The recently completed Grateful House is the retreat house\guest cabin at High Hope Farm. It is now available to family, friends, farm customers and others looking for a place to get away for a few days to enjoy a place in the country to write, read, rest, renew, reconnect…..

High Hope Farm is located in the Mississippi “black prairie” country of western Clay County near the village of Cedar Bluff.

Cedar Bluff is not exactly in the center of the universe but we’re close to Tupelo (home of Elvis Presley) and 3 excellent university communities (Oxford\Ole Miss; Starkville\Mississippi State; and Columbus\MS University for Women) – all of which offer a lot of cultural, literary, and culinary opportunities. We are in the center of a historic circle of incredible civil rights museums and sites from Memphis, TN to Jackson, MS, to Montgomery and Birmingham, AL. Also the famed Mississippi Blues Trail is close by and home to some of the best music and food in the country, and the state is now developing a Mississippi Writers Trail, a Civil Rights Trail, a Country Music Trail and even an Indian Mound Trail – all with spots near the farm.

We’re also near to superb biking trails – the Natchez Trace and the Tanglefoot Trail – and the Noxubee Wildlife Refuge is close by for excellent hiking, bird watching, fishing and other outdoor activities. Or you may want to just “porch” at the cabin and enjoy the view of lambs and steers grazing!

There is no cost for staying at the Grateful House – we simply ask for a donation in the amount of your choosing to one of our favorite and featured charities.

Grateful House Interior


There are no sacred and unsacred places; there are only sacred and desecrated places. My belief is that the world and our life in it are conditional gifts. – Wendell Berry
