Great location for a couple with dog(s)!

Only a half mile walk to the beach, and situated across from St. Stanislaus athletic fields. Lovely art galleries, gift stores, antique stores, restaurants and bars abound. The large garden is fenced and safe for dogs. We have recently added a saltwater pool with ample lounging and seating surrounding it. The cottage is circa 1880's and was renovated two years ago which includes a fully equipped stainless steel and granite kitchen. The bathroom is modern with a tub and shower. Charming wrap around side porch (perfect for reading), and deck on back of home. Rooms are light and bright with high ceilings and fans. Washer and dryer in home. Large off street parking area.

About Julia Kingham

We live in New Orleans and have been visiting BSL for many years. The contrast from the bustle of the city is really relaxing, and we find the locals welcoming and friendly. We are huge dog lovers and have often run into the dilemma of our dogs being large and having three total makes it almost impossible to find accommodation. So we are happy to open our home to responsible dog owners. Quite a few of the bars/restaurants allow dogs, which we really take advantage of.

Julia Kingham purchased this Cottage in 2016

Why Julia Kingham chose Bay Saint Louis

It is walking distance to the beach and old town. We have comfortable outdoor seating for lounging and dining, and an all around well appointed and tastefully decorated cottage.

What makes this Cottage unique

The old historic charm of this cottage reminds of us New Orleans, with the benefit of being walking distance to the water, and small town atmosphere.

                                                                Great cottage

                                                                Heidi W.Cedarburg, WI

                                                                We had a great time here. Perfect and charming cottage. Great walking town with beautiful beaches. We were especially grateful for accommodating our dog. He was one happy pooch.

                                                                Bay St Louis

                                                                Two words.....NEVER AGAIN!!! We didn’t even stay one night of the six nights we were supposed to be there. In their defense...the inside of the house was very nice and clean. The problem was it is located in a horrible neighborhood and it was not dog friendly for our dog. The owner seemed very nice...it just wasn’t a good property for us.

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                Two words....THANK GOODNESS!!!! these guests didn't stay. Shortly after arrival we received a call from a concerned neighbor that there was a very loud domestic dispute (full of expletives) taking place on the front porch. This disturbance was followed by luggage being kicked from the porch, onto walkway and then kicked again into the parking area. (Damage to the porch resulted). There was some concern as to whether the police should be notified. However, upon being told the the guests had vacated realized it was not necessary. As the many reviews claim the home is very dog friendly, and has received zero complaints about such, or the neighborhood. We always appreciate being told that there will be dog(s) and if one asks for special needs we will do our best to provide. In this case we were not informed.

                                                                Nice place

                                                                Wally L.

                                                                Had a good time here, met friendly locals who made us feel welcome, nice property and garden. Sadly we didn't get to sit out or to use the pool because of the weather but it looks very inviting. Pretty and comfortable property.

                                                                Great visit Thanksgiving Week

                                                                Christy S.

                                                                The property was perfect for our stay! We enjoyed the lovely home & yard. The house was well decorated, clean & comfortable! It was cool the week we were there so we didn't get to enjoy the pool. Hopefully we will get to retirn when weather is warm.

                                                                Neat house for a senior couple vacation

                                                                The cottage was just as pictured. Very clean, very well decorated and quiet. Nice backyard great place to sit and relax and our dog loved the freedom. I especially liked the chairs on the front porch, could sit there and watch the young kids practicing football across the street in the athletic complex. Cottage was a 12 minute walk to the beach. The only minus was the TV reception. The signal came and went, no DirectTV so we were not able to watch anything but local channels.

                                                                Nice comfortable living space. Close enough to walk practically anywhere.

                                                                Steve H.

                                                                Directly across from athletic fields, so can be noisy during school year. Property and house were neat and comfortable. Very safe as well.
