As football season begins, the recently opened Montgomery Bed and Breakfast is experiencing game day traffic for the first time.
Since opening at the end of August, Jennifer Carson and her husband Lee said their bed and breakfast is already booked up for every Mississippi State University home football game.
“We want people to be able to enjoy this property like we do,” Carson said. “It’s the sharing of the home. I mean there’s no other intimate way for everyone to be able to experience the house but to stay in it. Making the home a bed and breakfast fit that bill.”
As graduates from MSU’s school of architecture, the pair have always had an interest in historic homes and well-designed architecture.
“We have always had an interest in historic homes and nice architecture,” Carson said. “We were interested in working with this property in the past, but the timing was not right. As soon as we had the chance a second time, we knew we had to take it.”
The bed and breakfast has four rooms with private bathrooms for rent, and the home is decorated with antique furniture that matches the historical ambiance.
Alongside the historic appeal of the home, Carson said the home includes many modern comforts including locking keypads on each door.
