Oak Grove- More than just Accomodations

Oak Grove Mansion Photo, Vicksburg, Mississippi

Imagine its 1858, the long hard winter has just passed. The signs of spring are in the air and life is becoming abundantly evident. The air is sweet with honeysuckle and there before you is a magnificent and beautiful new home- Cedar Grove. It has been furnished with treasures from all over the world, hand picked by John and Elizabeth Klein, the builders and owners. Throughout the estate gardens you can see pathways leading to water fountains, patios and secluded gazebos. In the background you can hear the hustle and bustle of the port city of Vicksburg along the Mississippi River. Guests are arriving in horse drawn carriages to attend a social afternoon with the Kleins. Now, it’s the year 2000, and the only thing that has changed is the date, and instead of just touring this mansion, you can actually “live it” and experience the “Gone with the Wind” elegance and charm. The weary traveler who’s first thought is to find a convenient, run of the mill motel in which to spend the night, could be pleasantly surprised to discover that a night a Cedar Grove is not only reasonable and affordable, but can rejuvenate the spirit as well.
