Bay St. Louis cottage description
I was raised in the Air Force by great parents and lived all over this country. My father grew up here in Bay St. Louis and moved back after retirement. After living in many places since, I too have come back to roost on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
The charm of the old south has so many fond memories for me that I have tried to furnish this wonderful little cottage with the same ambience so that you will have good memories as well.
Hoping to always improve on a good thing - I invite you to come join me.

Very cute older home convenient to Old Town. Kitchen had everything we needed. Just blocks to the restaurants and antique stores. Bay St Louis is a great, quiet, relaxing place to vacation. I love the old cafes and stores. We stayed Christmas night and the temps were in the 30s at night. The house being old and drafty was cold for us. If you go in the winter you may want to consider bringing a small space heater. The one heater (window unit with AC/heater) was not enough to heat the whole house.

This was our first time to stay at this cottage. It may very well be my favorite now! The cottage was very comfortable and had everything we needed. We especially loved rocking on the front porch at night and early in the morning. The cottage is well air conditioned which was a plus with the heat this time if year. The owner was always available to answer any questions and even had the lighs and air on for us when we arrived. I can't think if anything that we could have needed that wasn't provided. The only negative would be that pets aren't allowed but it still doesn't warrant less than perfect in rating. I love this place!

Quaint and Comfortable
Quaint and Comfortable
My husband and I had an enjoyable stay at your quaint, little cottage on State St. in Bay St. Louis, MS. We both rested well on the very comfortable beds. With laundry appliances on site we brought fewer clothes. The carport kept our Harley out of the sun and rain. The charming decor throughout the home was a bonus. We loved the awesome shower. Thank you, Maureen, for been such a gracious and accommodating hostess. With your rental as our homebase, we enjoyed day trips to New Orleans, Ocean Springs, and all the towns in between. Our days were filled with sunbathing on area beaches, treasure hunting the antique and gift shops, nightlife and shows at the casinos, consuming delicious, fresh seafood, and always knowing we had a cool, comfortable cottage to come home to after a busy day. Thank you for helping to make our Gulf Coast vacation a memorable one. Hope to stay at your pleasant, little cottage again in the future.

Very clean, quiet, and quaint cottage that takes you back in time when life was easier. We enjoyed our little cottage full of antiques and a simpler way of life. We rented bikes and found ourselves back in time enjoying the beauty of a less stressful way of living. A wonderful break from the real world!

We loved your vintage cottage. It had everything we needed - lots of towels, linens, soaps, and the most comfortable beds! Also, very quiet neighborhood. We were even allowed to pick fresh grapefruit from the grapefruit tree in the back yard. Thank you again.

A Great Weekend Get-A-Way
A Great Weekend Get-A-Way
My husband & I recently stayed in this great little cottage for our second time. Conveniently located just blocks from the beach, shops & restaurants. Cozy, very clean and well furnished with comfy beds and a full-sized washer & dryer. It was just what we needed – a place to get away but still feel right at home. The owner was great – she made sure we had everything we needed and even had some brochures for activities in the area. We will definitely return here again soon and would recommend this rental to everyone!

Year Purchased: 1992
About the owner: As an ex-flight attendant I have slept in many different beds (that did NOT sound good). I have tried to include all the things that make me feel comfortable away from home into your stay here.
Why the Owner Chose Bay St. Louis:
I found this little obscure block of homes in 1992 and have renovated 9 houses on this block. Not only do I live on this block but my parents and sister have also lived on this block. It has been a labor of love but we have been able to turn a sows ear into a silk purse. Truly a dream come true for me.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This is a quiet, safe,conveinent neighborhood just four blocks to the beach, one block from main street and one block from hwy. 90. Will consider selling this little gem fully furnished. Would make a great weekend retreat for you and when not here it can be making money.
