The Orchard Cottage, formerly the Orchard Apartment, offers a quaint but large one bedroom, one bath get-away surrounded by fruit trees and flowering shrubs. While feeling secluded and private, it's just off the beaten path of the main streets of downtown Ocean Springs, minutes away from Front Beach, and a short drive over the bridge to the casinos.
Inside the cottage, the living area has plenty of seating with a flat screen TV, wet bar, and dining area. It also has some of the conveniences of home, such as a small refrigerator, Kuerig coffee maker, microwave, and toaster oven. Cups, glasses, plates, and silverware are also provided. The bedroom boasts two comfy queen size beds and a newly remodeled bathroom with a walk-in shower. Wi-fi, along with a variety of stations on Roku, is complimentary! Outside the cottage, the deck has a large table and a stainless steel grill for your cooking pleasure.
A two-block walk, and you're in the mix and mingle of great shops, awesome restaurants, and a hopping night-life! Known for the art, the festivals, and the music, Ocean Springs has all of that and more to offer. Walk down the tree-lined streets, and you'll find numerous shops and restaurants, many with old-fashioned storefronts. Several museums and art galleries are also located downtown. Front beach , and Maurepas Landing are located less than a mile from the cottage - a great place to hang out, get some sun, and enjoy the view (especially the sunsets)!
The Biloxi-Ocean Springs bridge is located nearby and is a great place to get in your afternoon walk, or simply use it to get to the casinos. Two of the casinos are located at the base of the bridge on the Biloxi side, one of which, The Palace, is non-smoking! And of course, great golf courses and exciting fishing trips are synonymous with the gulf coast.
So whether your looking for a quiet stroll along the tree-lined streets or wanting to attend some of the awesome festivals held downtown, Ocean Springs is the place to be, and the Orchard Cottage is the place to stay!
*Note: While being only 2 blocks from downtown and the historic L & N Train Depot, there is an active railroad located near the property. We have lowered our rates compared to other properties nearby to accommodate for potential noise from the train. While that can be soothing to some, it can be bothersome to others, and yet, not heard at all by many! If you need complete silence to sleep, you may want to book elsewhere; however, we do provide earplugs to remedy the situation.
**Ownership of the Orchard Cottage, formerly the Orchard Apartment, has recently changed. The furnishings and arrangements have not changed; however the art depicted in the pictures remained with the former owners. Please bear with us while we update the cottage with new art, and new pictures. The only change is the bathroom, which has been completely renovated and modernized!

About Carla Keith
I am originally from the gulf coast. My husband David, and I lived in Ocean Springs with our kids for about 13 years before moving to Belize. We purchased the property when our daughter moved back to OS after college. We lived in the downtown area prior to leaving, and just loved being able to walk or bike to dinner, to the shops, and to the festivals. We are excited to have ties back on the coast, and a great place to stay when we visit! Our daughter lives in the main house, and manages the property. She is a personal trainer at Freedom Fitness, and loves living in downtown OS!
Carla Keith purchased this Cottage in 2016

Quaint Cottage and Location
Our stay at The Orchard Cottage was so relaxing. The cottage was well taken care of and very relaxing for me and my husband. We were actually within walking distance of the downtown area. The town is very quaint, away from the rush of Biloxi, yet only a five minute drive from all of its activities and the beach. We would definitely go back again! Thanks Carla for making this happen for us and being responsive to our needs.
We are so glad you were able to relax while staying at The Orchard Cottage, and that you were happy with the accommodations and the location. It was our pleasure to make you comfortable! We appreciate you taking the time to write a review, and hope you and your husband can return soon!
This cottage is very clean and decorated very nicely. It seems very private, yet is easy access to everything.
We would stay here again!
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at The Orchard Cottage and were happy with the private, yet close to everything, setting! We look forward to your next visit. Thanks for taking the time to write a review - we appreciate it!
Myself and two friends headed to Biloxi on a girls trip and to visit my daughter stationed at the Air force base in Biloxi.
This cottage is a perfect little place with beautiful décor, awesome location and at such an affordable price for a family traveling so far from home. Carla (Manager/owner) was so helpful with any questions that we had. She was also very accommodating when we rolled into town earlier then expected.
The train being so close was interesting but it sure didn't ruin a thing. (Thank you for supplying the earplugs) I am a light sleeper, and only I used the earplugs and not once did the train wake me. There is food and shopping within walking distance and the beach is not far away at all.
Thank you again for opening your Cottage to complete strangers and I look forward to booking with you again in the near future.
Thanks for staying at the The Orchard Cottage! We are so glad you enjoy the accommodations and the location - it is great to be in walking distance of the restaurants and shopping! The train can be bothersome to light sleepers on occasion, but the earplugs work amazingly well (and sounds like it didn't bother the rest of the group). Hope you'll come stay with us next time, and thanks for taking the time to write a review!
Beautiful cottage in perfect location!!
We celebrated our 20th anniversary in Ocean Springs. The cottage was absolutely perfect and would highly recommend to anyone looking for a quiet, comfy spot within walking distance to downtown restaurants and shops. Cannot wait to come back and stay in this cottage again!
Quaint Cottage near downtown Ocean Springs
I stayed here about 2 weeks ago with my 2 small children. We booked last minute for a weekend stay in my hometown. This cottage was so cute and stylish. We had plenty of room for the 3 of us. I felt that all of the upgrades were just as good as any hotel. The bathroom was spacious. The beds were comfortable. We enjoyed the Roku Box and watched movies both nights. The keurig was a nice touch. The boys loved that there were pecans and pears in the front yard. The only complaint is that it is right next to the railroad. The boys got a kick out of watching the trains go by but in the wee hours of the night it is bothersome......BUT not enough to discredit this adorable cottage at an amazing price. I plan to stay here again in the future.
Thanks for the great review! Glad you and your children enjoyed both inside and outside of the cottage, in spite of the train. Sometimes there are orange and grapefruit trees in blossom in addition to the pear and pecan trees! Hopefully y'all will see them next time you visit! Thanks again for staying with us, and taking the time to write a review - we appreciate it!
This cottage was so cute and very clean!...just perfect for our girls trip. We couldn't have asked for a better location. We walked downtown for dining and cocktails both nights. Ocean Springs is such a great town! Would love to stay here again!
We are so glad you enjoyed the cottage, and took advantage of the location by walking downtown for dinner and drinks! Would love to have back! Thanks for choosing to stay at The Orchard Cottage, and for taking the time to write a review - we appreciated it!
