Bellande Cottage is stocked with all of life's necessities and conveniences. As one of the 4 cottages at Front Beach Cottages, Bellande Cottage is conveniently located just one block off Washington Avenue and 3 blocks from the shops of Government Street. We are a block and a half to Ocean Springs' hoppin' Front Beach where a brand new 2 mile beach path winds along the sandy beaches and awaits exploration and exercise/bicycle enthusiasts. Front Beach also boast new picnics tables, bonfire pits, beautiful McPherson Pier for fishing or a moonlight stroll and Ft. Maurepas Park with its new splash pad, playground equipment, covered picnic area and amphitheater. A short walk in the opposite direction will take you to the Ocean Springs harbor where shrimp may be bought directly from the boats.

Downtown Ocean Springs is host to the famous Walter Anderson Museum, Mary C. O'Keefe Cultural Center and Shearwater Pottery. In addition, the many restaurants within easy walking distance of Bellande Cottage will satisfy anyone's tastebuds. From sushi to steaks and from middle eastern cuisine to Italian delights, there is something for everyone in downtown. After dinner there are many night life offerings, many featuring live music from local musicians.

Ocean Springs remains one of the Gulf Coast's best kept secrets. It is located about 25 minutes from the Biloxi-Gulfport Regional Airport and is right across the bridge from Biloxi where guests will find casinos with top name entertainment and gaming.

A deposit is required to confirm a reservation and all major credit cards are accepted. There is a strict no smoking policy in all of our cottages and violations will result in a monetary penalty, but you may smoke on the grounds or on the deck, so long as waste is disposed of properly.

The owners live on site and are here to assist with any requests both prior to your visit as well as during your stay. Come visit Bellande Cottage at Front Beach Cottages and enjoy a slice of Gulf Coast style in beautiful Ocean Springs, Mississippi.
