Owners Billy and Madge Marley Howell are native Mississippi Deltans and founders of The Delta Bohemian®, an online literary and mulit-media website celebrating the unity and diversity of the Mississippi Delta.
The 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.
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.
Madge and Billy with their lovable shihpoo “Dandy” have an owner’s suite downstairs they use from time to time when not staying at their home on Moon Lake.
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.
