Why the Owner Chose Bay Saint Louis, MS, USA:
The owners return to the Gulf Coast regularly for rest and relaxation. They are pleased to have the opportunity to restore and preserve this historical 100 year old cottage, 'La Petite Cachette' (Little Nook). They love their home and want to share this restored piece of coastal history.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This Creole home is one of the few 'Biloxi Cottages' to survive after Katrina.The typical 'Biloxi Cottage' is a locally popular vernacular house that is typified by a gable roof, undercut gallery, and four bay facade with doors in two central bays.
