Taking a vacation or a stay-cation is one of the best things you can do to unwind and relax from your responsibilities and hectic lifestyle. Here at the Henington House, we value becoming in tune with yourself, those around you, and the beautiful nature surrounding us. We are here to help you find these things.
Behind the main Henington House rests a Gardener’s Cottage, built around 1912. It is nestled in the lush gardens and tall Mississippi trees, hiding in plain site. When you step into the cottage, it is as if you are transported back in time to tea parties, garden gatherings, and days laid in the sun.
Historically, the downstairs was known to the Henington’s as their Carriage House. This space stored carriages used by the family. In the 1950’s, the Carriage House was transformed into an living space - a kitchen, gathering room, two bedrooms, and a bathroom. Traveling upstairs, you will find the Gardener’s Cottage. In this living area there is a kitchen, three bedrooms, and a bathroom all in the old Edwardian style of the past that brings relaxation and ease to a vacation. The cottage isn’t all old, however. There is modern electricity and internet.
We would love to share with you and your family our beautiful Gardener’s Cottage and gardens, located in the Historic Neighborhood of Hattiesburg, Mississippi. When you stay in the cottage, you are walking distance from our active downtown city, parks, and restaurants.
