Ball Mill is a spacious, well-equipped three bedroom and air-conditioned log house built in the 1940s, located on 62 acres of private woodland. It is 100 miles north of New Orleans and 90 miles south of Jackson, MS. With no other houses in sight, it features a pond fed by two streams with a fishing dock. It is the site of a former gristmill and early settlement in Marion County. This property is suitable for couples, families (with kids), big groups, and house-trained pets.

This place is incredibly charming + rustic- better than expected from the pictures. We fished, we hiked, we relaxed, and there's a great flea market in town. Maybe bring your own knives if you want to do a lot of cooking ;-)

This house felt like a step back into time - big porch and a true log cabin. The ac worked fine, hot water was fine, and we cooked a couple of nights in the kitchen. It’s an older home but it was perfect for what we were looking for. Lots of restaurants and stores close by -
