About US

If you are from the south, the term “hurricane house” is very familiar.

After the destruction of hurricane Katrina to New Orleans, the decision was made to find a safe hurricane house. This lead us to Laurel, MS and as people often say. . . the rest is history.

Located in beautiful Jones County, MS, The Hitchin’ Poste is nestled on 20 acres of exquisite, wooded land. The property has a 5-acre pond (we call it a lake), pergola, gazebo, old barn, and a caretaker’s cottage which has been converted to a 2-bedroom bridal cottage. Not to mention, piers, stately magnolias, oaks, cypress and pecan trees, wooded paths and breathtaking gardens and a fountain.

The ‘old barn’ and caretaker cottage are original to the property and the perfect location to hold your event.

If you are looking for a serene, lush, beautiful location for your upcoming event, you owe yourself a trip to The Hitchin’ Poste.

At The Hitchin’ Poste, “it’s not an event. . . it is an Experience!”

Choosing the Hitchin’ Poste as my venue to renew my wedding vows was one of the best decisions I have ever made. The management helped us navigate the wedding planning process from beginning to wedding day. Because of their planning, my wedding day was perfect with not even a small blip. My guest were treated like royalty. The property was beautifully manicured, and every inch of the area was turned into a magical place. I recommend anyone planning on getting married, go to the hp. Thank you Todd and Rocky for making my wedding day flawless!
