Property description

This is a sweet 1930's cottage that has been lovingly updated while leaving its charm, including the original heart pine floors. The location is ideal for a family vacation in Ocean Springs. The beach and harbor are within walking distance. There is a beautiful pathway on the beach passing the Ft. Maurepas Park and fishing pier. In season the shrimp boats sell their catch to the public, and charter boats are available. There is another Children's' Park 3 blocks from the cottage, and a soccer field and walking track only a block away. The cottage is equipped with everything you'll need for a pleasant stay of a weekend, week or longer. Check with us about extended stays.

Downtown Ocean Springs is a pleasant walk of 3 blocks and is full of restaurants, pubs, shops and art galleries. But, first and foremost, Ocean Springs is an old fashioned town with a great little grocery store (Broome's), banks, churches, and even a drugstore complete with a soda fountain. The Walter Anderson Museum and Shearwater Pottery are nationally known and acclaimed. This beautiful little town, with its tree shaded streets has been featured many times in travel magazines, and others such as Southern Living. Be sure to check the Ocean Springs Chamber of Commerce for its full schedule of festivals and other events.


In the event that you want more adult activities, the casinos in Biloxi are a short drive over the new Biloxi Bay bridge - also a popular walking route. Golf courses are available in Ocean Springs, as well as its neighboring cities.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Jack & Beth Riley have lived on the MS Gulf Coast for 35 years. They enjoy all that Ocean Springs has to offer and are happy to share their knowledge of the area with their guests.

Why the Owner Chose Ocean Springs:
We purchased this cottage as a rental in June of 2005. Then Hurricane Katrina hit in August and destroyed our house on the harbor. We were fortunate to have the 'Russell cottage' to move into and enjoyed it for over 4 years. We loved being able to walk downtown for work, play and business. We now live only 2 miles from the cottage but still maintain it as we would our own home.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Our cottage has the unique benefit of being in walking distance to the shopping and restaurants downtown, and to the beach and two parks. This is located in one of the oldest, established neighborhoods of Ocean Springs.
