Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: Harold And Claire Claire is French-Canadian who grew up in Quebec. Harold grew up in Long Beach but had not resided in Long Beach for 50 years, retired from 35 year career in Public Safety from Utah. Purchased this cottage as a family vacation home for our six adult children and seven grand children to experience and enjoy the Mississippi Gulf Coast....they all now have a deep connection to the beauty and people of our beloved community.
Why the Owner Chose Long Beach, MS, USA:
This could be classified as a “love story” by some or simply “luck of life” by others. In 2010 I, Harold, returned to the Mississippi Gulf Coast for a class reunion, where I hadn’t lived for over forty years. During that visit Claire feel in love with the beauty and peacefulness of the area and the people that call it home. We had been looking for a location to purchase a winter/retirement home for several years. After we returned from our trip life went on and we continued looking for property in Florida and other parts of the South never thinking we would return to the Mississippi Gulf Coast Then in 2013 events in life again brought us in contact with friends along the Coast. Later that year I was able to purchase a building lot in Long Beach with thoughts that we might build a small home there some day. In 2014 we again traveled to the area for Mardis Gras and took in a number of the parades along the coast. When checking the property I had purchased, Claire noticed that the older cottage on the property next door was for sale. The cottage had not been maintained for several years and was in need of much attention. Claire decided to purchase the cottage and the work was on to set it up for a family retreat. After several months of work and help from many friends in the area Claire has brought the cottage alive. This will now be our families’ (kids and grandkids) retreat when time allows. We hope you enjoy the cottage, Long Beach, the area, the beach life, the great seafood and of course the people of the area as much as we do and will. Please feel at home at our cottage and enjoy the beauty of the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
