Our Story

Looking to move back home to our roots, and still not completely ready for retirement, we found a perfect match for us.  The Ivey Lane Bed and Breakfast!

Lane Jenkins is a retired Lieutenant Colonel from the Mississippi Highway Patrol, and spent some of his career as Chief of Security for the Governor of Mississippi! It was during that time of his career, he found his calling for "meeting the needs of others".  Lane will always make sure you are on time, well informed, and well equipped for whatever and wherever your journey calls for.  During the school year you will find Lane working as a high school football and basketball referee. He is a Mississippi State alumni and frequents  football and baseball events.  You will find him on the golf course most sunny days!

BJ truly has the gift of Hospitality. Throughout their 35 year marriage the Jenkins house has always been the "Host Home" & "Home Hangout" for every event, always making everyone feel welcome, comfortable, and well fed!  BJ is a 5 time Nashville gospel recording artist and is currently the Worship Leader at Crestview Church.   She loves to Sew, Antique and play golf.

Lane & BJ have two adult daughters and five grandchildren.
