Located one block from the beach in the 'Old Town' section of Bay St. Louis. Within walking distance of the beach and 'The Shoo Fly' (where you can sit in the shade of a huge old oak tree and watch the trains go by). A playground that was donated to the children of Bay St. Louis after Hurricane Katrina is across the street along with a tennis court.
Churches, antique shops, coffee shops, restaurants, pubs, art galleries and many unusual and interesting retail shops are all within two blocks of the cottage. Walking towns are nearly a thing of the past, but in 'Old Town' Bay St. Louis you can still walk anywhere you want to go and feel safe.
It's a short drive to the Hollywood Casino and Bridges Golf Course, (an Arnold Palmer designed course). Also, a short drive to the Silver Slipper Casino with a famous Sunday champagne brunch.
The second Saturday of every month, the merchants of 'Old Town' sponsor the Art Walk. They have bands and complimentary food and drinks. It's a great way to meet the locals and come to understand the uniqueness and friendliness of Bay St. Louis. Consider yourself warned: You may never want to leave the bay! (I never do) Second Saturday (as the locals call it) starts at 4:00 p.m. and ends at about 9:00 p.m.
The Carriage House sits behind the main house that was built in 1903. The Carriage house was built shortly after that. It's constructed of solid concrete blocks, which give it a real European flair. It has two bedrooms and a bath upstairs and a kitchen/living combination downstairs.
There is also a New Orleans style courtyard for your coffee in the morning or cocktails in the evening. Or you can just bask in the sun, listen to the birds, read a book and take in the wonderful gulf breezes. Whatever you choose, it's the perfect place to get away from all your woes and relax.
Bay St. Louis has recovered from Hurricane Katrina and did not suffer any significant damage from hurricanes Isaac and Gustav. It is interesting to hear the storm stories and see for yourself, how this little town's people have banded together to bring back the town that we all love.
For added interest:
New Orleans is less than an hour away.
There's a great children's museum 20 minutes away in Gulfport.
An outlet mall 30 minutes away in Gulfport.
Stennis Aerospace Museum 20 minutes away.
We will be happy to guide you to any points of interest in the area.
No one under 25 years of age without supervision.
Children are welcome, but sorry no pets are allowed.
Out of respect for our non smoking guests, there is no smoking allowed inside the cottage, but feel free to smoke in the courtyard.

About the owner: Originally from Holland, I came to the United States in 1992 in pursuit of a cajun lady, adventure and the American Dream! I am a Physical Therapist and owner of Physiofit Physical Therapy in Orleans and Lafourche Parishes, Louisiana. My interests are my family, adventure sports and ANY water sport.
Why the Owner Chose Bay Saint Louis, MS, USA:
Bay St. Louis has a unique character and my wife and I fell in love with it many years ago. Having a second home here is a dream come true. Once the car is parked, there really is no use for it anymore as everything is within walking or bicycling distance.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Our carriage house and Bay St. Louis invite you to park your vehicle and never touch it again for days. Everything is within walking distance. My wife loves the restaurants and shops, I love the beach and watersports. (and the restaurants too!) Close to 'The Ugly Pirate', a unique watering hole and restaurant. A must visit!
