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 Delta Bohemian Guest House (DBGH), a former two story Delta cypress cook's house, and The White House were built in 1917 by a Delta planter. The DBGH was extensively restored in 2012 by the Howells with the help of fellow native Deltan, friend, and interior designer Marilyn Trainor Storey, principal designer of Jackson, Mississippi's Per Design Studio and design blogger MS Design Maven.



The Howells and Storey have created a one-of-a-kind lodging using an upscale, yet earthy and bohemian style, infusing the guest house with warmth and a real sense of the old Mississippi Delta. The DBGH is an ideal respite for couples, groups of friends, small families, business travelers, and Deltans returning home for the holidays.


Owners Madge and Billy live in the Clarksdale White House part-time and recently made several of the upstairs bedrooms available for short term rental.


Rent the DBGH, rent a room in the Clarksdale White House or rent both! Every single guest who has ever stayed with us has been bowled over by the property. We believe you will too.

UPDATE: The CLARKSDALE WHITE HOUSE and the DELTA BOHEMIAN GUEST HOUSE both closed July 2020 due to coronavirus and subsequent shutdown. Our Tours are still active. See the following paragraph about booking a tour with Chilly Billy.
