Each area is appointed with all sorts of eclectic period and Clarksdale related furnishings. Each step of the staircase leading up to the guests bedrooms is decorated with family photographs. While no blues acts play at the Clarksdale guest house, guests can tickle the keys of a fantastic sounding baby grand Chickering piano in the living room or play Madge’s Epiphone guitar.

If your travels ever take you to Clarksdale, you really should consider staying at the authentic Clarksdale White House and experience true Southern hospitality at its best in a unique and real Clarksdale Mississippi Inn.

3 blocks from Downtown Clarksdale​

The Clarksdale White House is located on West 2nd Street, an iconic thoroughfare connecting Downtown Clarksdale, the heart of the Mississippi Delta and the home of the blues, to the historical residential neighborhood on the West side of the Sunflower River.


Due to the Coronavirus and subsequent economic shutdown, we SOLD our beautiful home as we could no longer continue due to the complete lack of new bookings and massive numbers of cancellations. Thankfully, we were able to refund all our cancelled guests reservations in full for the money they paid us in advance. We are sorry we did not have the capital to continue to ride this out in a wait and see mode. We could no longer afford to keep our home and are grateful we found a buyer who wanted it. We loved hosting all our wonderful guests through the years.

Please book a Delta Bohemian Tour with Chilly Billy when you visit Clarksdale.

May God’s peace be with you.
