Overview

About the property

2 bedroom 1 bathroom Sleeps 5

This cozy little cottage is the same color as a banana Moon Pie thrown from a Mardi Gras float. The Moon Pie Cottage is reminiscent of vacations past in Ocean Springs, Mississippi, a sleepy little seaside village nestled between bayous and the Gulf of Mexico. You can hear the crickets, see the stars, feel the gulf breeze and you might even see a chicken cross the road! Ocean Springs is the oldest French settlement on the Gulf Coast, founded in 1699. Enjoy the 300 year old moss draped live oaks as you stroll through the neighborhood past small shops, great restaurants and art galleries. Visitors come for bird-watching, bicycling, fishing and uncrowded sandy beaches.

The Moon Pie Cottage built in 1925 is a quaint bungalow. It sits on a quiet tree-lined historic neighborhood street. Across the street is an 1893 carpenter gothic church and one of the oldest live oaks on the Gulf Coast. Just three blocks from Washington Avenue and Government Street and three blocks to the beach; you’re close to everything yet private and tucked away.

The Cottage is fully equipped with everything you’ll need to have a relaxing and carefree stay including two bedrooms with queen memory foam beds, bathroom w/shower, kitchen, full size frig w/ice maker, dishwasher, washer and dryer, TV and free internet connection. It has a front porch with a swing, a shady back porch and a patio table with umbrella for dining alfresco. So leave your stress and worries behind, bring your flip flops, try on some new adventures and refresh your soul!

Cozy!

  • 5 of 5

Mood Pie Cottage offered a quaint and cozy stay! Very comfortable bedding and reasonably stocked kitchen. The Cottage is within walking distance to all of the downtown activities. We also enjoyed sitting in the backyard in the evening for cocktails. One afternoon we had a good bit of rain and the owner quietly popped over and put up a nice table umbrella! I highly recommend Moon Pie Cottage!

Calm, quiet, homey

Perfect layout in a small cottage for living. The antiques add a feeling of staying in someone’s home. Front porch swing delightful. Beds very comfortable.

Soul Refreshing at the Moon Pie !

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable, warm home was all we could have asked for and more. Very comfortable, relaxing décor. Beautifully decorated, had everything we needed for our 7 day stay. Very nice quiet neighborhood with coffee shop just a couple doors down. Easy walk to town and down to the beach. Owner is quick to respond for questions, even gave us best info on parking in New Orleans. Good closet space, but could use another chest of drawers. Already making plans for return trip next year for the Moon Pie !!! Can't wait !! ~ Mary Ann

Owner's Response: Dear Ms Roberta- I'm so sorry about the bugs in the coffee pot, that has never happened before. We were out of town prior to your stay and depended on our back up housekeeper. Again I apologize! Thanks-Sonia

The cottage is the perfect size for 4.

The location is an easy walk to historic downtown Ocean Springs,

and the infamous Walter Anderson Museum.
