Clarksdale White House photo by Emma HuangThe downstairs of the Clarksdale bed and breakfast is a common area, including the foyer, front room, living room, dining room and kitchen. 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 must sell our beautiful home. We owe many, many guests refunds due to their unfortunate cancellations of their travel plans. We have received no new bookings since mid-March. We do not have the capital to refund our many guests their pre-paid reservations, therefore we are going to sell so we can pay our debts back to them.

In the meantime, we are only opening our Treetop Room, Pap Pap’s Clock Room and the Delta Bohemian Guest House for overnight stays. We only allow bookings up to a month in advance as we are unsure of when our home will sell. We are sad to close this beautiful home down to our visitors worldwide but it is unavoidable. Please inquire with Madge or Billy if you are interested in purchasing our home(s); the two properties go together.

May God’s peace be with you.
Magical Madge and Chilly Billy Howell
