Magical Madge and Chilly Billy Howell, Founders of The Delta Bohemian®



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.
Magical Madge and Chilly Billy Howell

Owners Billy and Madge Marley Howell are native Mississippi Deltans and founders of The Delta Bohemian®, an online literary and multi-media website celebrating the unity and diversity of the Mississippi Delta.

Clarksdale White House (CWH) and the Delta Bohemian Guest House (DBGH), a two-story former Delta cypress cook’s house located behind the CWH, were built in 1917 by a Delta planter. The CWH began renting rooms in 2015 and the DBGH started in 2012. Both properties are a Delta Bohemian® Company.

The CWH is a one-of-a-kind Clarksdale guest house with Madge’s upscale yet bohemian style. The CWH provides contemporary warmth with a real sense of the old Mississippi Delta. Both the DBGH and the CWH are ideal respites for couples, groups of friends, small families, business travelers, and Deltans returning home for the holidays. Often small groups will reserve the CWH and DBGH and thus have the entire property to themselves, creating a truly special paradise for fellowship with each other but also providing plenty of space for alone time.

Guest enjoy meeting Madge and Billy along with their lovable shihpoo “Dandy” who visits the house from time to time.

The Delta Bohemian® is proud to offer both of these authentic, unique treasures-of-a-place-to-stay to visitors from around the world making their pilgrimage to Clarksdale, heart of the Mississippi Delta.

There is nowhere else quite like the Clarksdale White House and the Delta Bohemian Guest House. Let Magical Madge welcome you and orient you to this historical delta town. Madge and Billy are both Clarksdale born. Let them give you a personal introduction to their town.​

Rent the Clarksdale White House, the Delta Bohemian Guest House or rent both! You will love it!
