About H Hackett Cummins

The owners have an adjoining cottage. They love the coastal weather that tempts them outside year-round, especially for gardening, fishing, golfing and sitting on the porch to watch the wildlife. They look forward to the many area festivals and fairs in nearby towns.

H Hackett Cummins purchased this cottage in 2006

Why H Hackett Cummins chose Mississippi

We have been coming here since our childhood--grandparents, parents, and more, and now children and grandchildren. Now in retirement, we continue to enjoy the Mississippi Sound and the area's many charms.

What makes this cottage unique

The Mississippi Gulf Coast offers one town after another facing a white sand beach that stretches most of the way from Louisiana to Alabama. You'll find small town charm, plus the excitement of casinos, shows and city life found in a metropolitan area that ranks second in the state. Natural beauty abounds in the Gulf Islands National Seashore, the coastal live oaks and the multitude of birds and ocean life. What a treat to return each time to the Dormie House in historic Pass Christian, just steps from all the Coast has to offer.

Clean peaceful 3 BR, 2 bath. Less than a block from the beach. Awesome front porch!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Dormie House during Spring Break. We nearly had the beach to ourselves! The gulf water was light brown like lake water because of the Mississippi River. We are inlanders, so we did not mind. There are plenty of good resturants close by, and there are GREAT tips on where to eat and shop at the house.

The kitchen was fully equipped, and groceries are not far away. It was nice to have laundry facilities so we could travel light.

The day that it rained, we went into New Orleans to the WW II Museum, and to the French Quarter.

The only thing I would caution is the bedroom layout is so that you walk through 2 of the bedrooms to get to the master and the back bath and laundry. Our family delt with that just fine. The front porch is GREAT for those that stay up late or get up early. The coffe pot is even out there!

I imagine we will stay here again if timing works out. =)

The Dormie House was better than advertised.

  • 5 of 5

We had a very pleasant one week stay at the Dormie House . The house itself was much bigger than we expected . There is a large living room , dining room ,kitchen in addition to the 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and the surprise was the glassed in ,air-conditioned front porch that had another dining table as well as a sitting area . The home was fully equipped with all of the kitchen utensils, dishes, the linens were all in excellent condition, and there was an adequate supply of extra towels, blankets, pillows . Also there is a laundry room with washer,dryer, iron and ironing board . The house was a half block from the beach and it was tucked under the large oak trees on a quiet road .We had quiet and solitude and felt very comfortable . The location is convenient to the rest of the coast, Gulfport ,Biloxi and more restaurants ,casinos and is about an hour drive to New Orleans .There is an abundance of good restaurants from Bay Saint Louis to Biloxi .We did certainly enjoy staying here and would recommend this property .It would be excellent for a family with children .

Nice location in quiet neighborhood.

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was very nice. Clean and roomy, the Dorman house had everything we needed. Large kitchen equipped with everything needed if you wanted to cook. Nice sized bedrooms with comfy beds and two full bathrooms . Only a block from the beach . The house has s nice yard and is located in a quiet neighborhood. My husband fished with Capt. Brian of Reel South Fishing Charters. He had a great time and caught a lot of fish. The house is not too far from the Pass Christian Harbor which was nice for him. Wonderful restaurants near by also. Hooks, Bacchus, and Shaggy's are a few of our favorites. The Pass had an art festival in the park. I enjoyed the beautiful crafts and visiting with the artist's. Would stay here again. Had a wonderful time!

Cozy Well-Equipped Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at the Dormie House. The kitchen was well-equipped which was a positive for us since we were able to eat in more & prepare our own dinner with the fresh seafood we purchased from the harbor that day. We enjoyed having our mealtimes in the enclosed porch & loved the architecture of the home. We also liked that that the ride into town was bike-friendly. It enabled us to ditch the car for an afternoon & cycle into town for some sightseeing & souvenir shopping. Highly recommend.

A Wedding Weekend at The Dormie House

  • 5 of 5

This place was just perfect for our family while on the MS Coast for a family wedding. What a quaint and charming cottage just a block off the beautiful beach! Very clean, quiet and so vintage!!! Beds were comfy, plenty of space for all of us, and the cottage was so well equipped for the weekend. Conveniently located near the charming town of Pass Christian and an easy walk to the beach. We loved our stay at The Dormie House! Hope to be back soon!

Loved the Dormie House!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property. It was clean and well maintained, quiet but close to the beach within walking distance. Very comfortable beds and very roomy. The landscape was very neat. Several miles to Walmart and close to eating places. The owner gave us directions to the area for shopping and places to eat. Very helpful! You will love this house if you stay there.
