Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Historic and beautiful. We stayed here with our two 7 years olds and everyone enjoyed it. We stay here again. The pool was nice and is a must have for us. The owners are very engaging on your arrival and gave us other recommendations while we were in town. BSL is a great place to slow down and this house added to that experience.

Perfect spot in BSL

  • 5 of 5

The guest quarters were the perfect spot for our weekend beach getaway. The house was very clean and comfortable. The pool was perfect. The kitchen is well stocked and we were able to eat meals at the house and had everything we needed. We went with our 18 month old and it was perfect for him. Mary Ellen was accommodating and very patient when our son accidentally "tested" the CO detector causing the alarm to go off!

The beach is within walking distance or a quick drive down the street and there are bikes available, but we brought a wagon which made it easier to get back and forth with our stuff (and not get in the car wet and full of sand). There's also a playground with a splash pad less than a mile away that our son enjoyed.

Great place for a weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were looking for something a little different for a quick weekend. We found it here! The guest quarters was well appointed and comfortable, and the pool was lovely. The owners were accomodating and pleasant, very easy to deal with. Bay St. Louis is a neat little town with interesting sites and nice restaurants. We spent a day in New Orleans, only an hour's drive away. Thank you for a wonderful experience.
