About Allen Reed
Moved to the Gulf Coast in 1996 and lived in Waveland until 2005 and afterwards resettled to the current location.
Allen Reed purchased this House in 2007
Why Allen Reed chose Bay Saint Louis
We bought this property due to its proximity to the beach and the size of the yard. Since 2007, we have established numerous butterfly and rain gardens using native plants to create a beautifully secluded nook just off the center of "The Bay".
What makes this House unique
Some of our favourite qualities about the property include the front porch, the front dining room, the views out our windows overlooking the yard and gardens and the privacy from trees and large plants. Sitting on the front porch enjoying our morning coffee is something we enjoy every morning at sunrise. In the evenings we enjoy our dinner looking out the front window watching the sunset.

Beautiful cottage, perfect getaway.
This is a beautiful little home, perfectly decorated and comfortable. We love the colors, and the gardens are delightful and well maintained. I highly approve of the book choices on the shelf; I came with my own reading material, but ended up choosing one of theirs.
The deck was perfect for viewing a lightning storm.
Overall a wonderful vacation.
Wonderful weekend stay!
My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful weekend in Bay Saint Louis attending a wedding! The Balletine Beach Cottage was absolutely perfect and exactly what we were looking for! Allen and Cathy could not have been more accommodating and even allowed us to arrive and check in early. I would highly recommend the cottage when traveling around Bay Saint Louis!
Quaint and quiet. Beautiful gardens.
The place was lovely as were the owners. Thanks so much for a wonderful last minute weekend getaway. Will be back.
Great mini-vacation get-away!
The house was perfect for my wife and me. It's close enough to walk to the beach, but we chose to ride the bikes instead. We loved exploring the area, trying out the different restaurants, and sitting on the porch at night. Allen and Cathy were great hosts. If this home is on your short list, I'd say book it. You won't be disappointed.
Unique, charming cottage!
This beautiful cottage is perfect for a getaway. Beautifully attended gardens surround the charming cottage that's perfectly sized for a couple or trio. Close enough to the beach and town to walk or take a super short ride. At night, enjoy star gazing from the back deck. Incredibly friendly owners, too! We will definitely be back!
Very nice little place!
We really enjoyed our stay here. It was peaceful and most of what we needed was provided. The only thing I wished for was an ocean view off this porch but the garden was lovely to look at! Thanks so much for a quick get away!
