About Betsy Modglin

Love the Gulf Coast and had a great time living in Le Shabby Chateau, the main house, next to Le Petite Chateau. Although I decided to leave the Coast, I couldn't totally give it up, so I turned my property in to a Vacation Rental and have loved every minute of it!

Betsy Modglin purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Betsy Modglin chose Mississippi

I purchased Le Shabby Chateau and Le Petit Chateau as my primary residence in 2006 after Hurricane Katrina. Both were in shambles, but it wasn't long before I had them renovated, restored, and resurrected! Absolutely love anything old -- am an antiquer/junker at heart!

What makes this cottage unique

Close to the beach, casinos, waterparks, marine institute, space center, booming downtown Gulfport, restaurants, nightlife, shopping, antiquing, deep-sea fishing, and all the rest that the beautiful Coast has to offer.

Tiny House, Beach Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Nice, clean, cute house. Pet friendly. Private parking. Small patio and yard. Ideal for romantic getaway. Very close to the beach. Friendly neighbors walking their pets. Will stay here again if in the area.

A True "Love Shack"

  • 4 of 5

An accommodation with only the essentials a couple would need for a getaway.

Simple, clean, small, with several nice decorator "touches" - hence the title love shack rather than "shabby chic".

Convenient neighborhood with the midnight train to remind you not to waste the entire night sleeping. ;)

Though out of town, Betsy, the owner, was responsive, helpful, and conscientious.

Owner's Response: Thanks Jimmy! Never thought of it as a "Love Shack" so your review made me chuckle. Glad you enjoyed your stay!

Really cute, clean

  • 3 of 5

Very small but charming. Train is close by and blows horn, no door on bathroom and 4 blocks from beach. Otherwise, allows pets, good for price and really adorable cottage.

I have long dreamed of a warm, month long getaway. La Petite Chateau fulfilled my every expectation! This beautiful cottage is located in a safe, serene neighborhood. I had absolutely no concern about taking a solitary evening stroll. Only two short blocks to the beach, this is an easy walk through a lovely park. La Petite is beautifully and tastefully decorated, giving a sense of relaxation and comfort. Upon meeting Betsy, the owner/creator, I understood why there was magnificent attention given to each detail. Betsy is a delight and truly cares that her guests have a memorable visit. Although I've only been home a few weeks, I am already planning for a longer stay next year!! Thank you Betsy for sharing your home with me!! Barbie

Relaxing Getaway

  • 4 of 5

Le Petite Chateau is a tiny cottage tucked in the back yard of a home. It is as described: tiny. It has everything you need; kitchenette, shower, TV, comfortable queen sized bed. If you want to experience what the new craze of tiny home living would be like, this is a great opportunity! We went in the winter but the weather (when it wasn't raining), allowed you to sit outside on a patio. The town of Gulfport, and surrounding areas, are still recovering from Hurricane Katrina, which was surprising to us Yankees, even after 11 years. There are some great restaurants from casual to dressy. Nearby Pass Christian and Bay St. Louis are perfect day trips with cute shops and more restaurants. The beaches were vacant (but it was December-January) and within very close proximity to the VRBO. The neighborhood is very quiet with only the occasional train interrupting the peace. One thing we found funny/strange: every morning at 8:00 am the Star Spangled Banner was played over some sort of public address system. We enjoyed our stay and welcomed the respite from very stressful careers.
