Spitfire Acres

Hidden along a quiet country road in Southaven, MS is a treasure that has become a favorite venue for off-site business meetings, weddings, family reunions, retreats, birthday, retirement and office parties.

Spitfire Acres is a 5+ acre event center, retreat and botanical garden in the heart of Southaven, Mississippi comprised of approximately 10,000 square feet of interior/exterior entertainment areas. VERY secluded and wooded, the property is located directly north of and adjacent to, Sacred Heart School on Tchulahoma at Church Road.

Spitfire Acres

Inside Spitfire Acres the contemporary and spacious interior is fully furnished and accessorized with original artworks. The facility offers a meeting room with a 70″ flat screen TV/monitor, a flexible-room with soaring fireplace for dining and conversation, etc.

A prep kitchen provides cold food storage and warming for catering needs. A main-floor sitting room with a second fireplace and an additional flat screen TV monitor is the largest of 3 break-out rooms for small group discussions.

Two additional small group discussion rooms and a restroom are located upstairs. (Because Spitfire Acres is also the perfect choice for weddings, the main-floor sitting room/bath also functions as a bridal suite with dressing area, restroom and double vanity with two makeup stations.  Upstairs, the two office sitting rooms with restroom facilities make the perfect groom’s quarters during wedding events.)

Outside, Spitfire Acres is a beautiful sanctuary with plenty of deck and patio space. There is a wrought iron railing that adds to the beauty and provides safety as you look out over the 2 acre stocked pond that wraps around two sides of the building.  You’ll also find mature trees protruding through the deck, a gunite-lagoon-style swimming pool with a weeping wall, and a separate waterfall gracing the pond. For even more enjoyable entertaining, Spitfire Acres has a lovely gazebo style outdoor bar.

In the winter months, warm up in one of the striking red chairs beside the cozy gas fire pit in the front of the building. When guests need a break to stretch and refresh, they can stroll across the front lawn and visit the wishing well and log cabin or wander around the levee. Any time of year is a good time to take a walk, but the property is especially lovely in the Spring and Fall. Bring a blanket and picnic on the lawn – Rent a bouncy blow-up for the children – Enjoy a lawn game in the sunshine!
