PRIVATE COTTAGE, HISTORIC OCEAN SPRINGS, INTOWN LOCATION

Ocean Springs Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

The Green Cottage is a private vacation home nestled beneath live oaks and magnolias in downtown Ocean Springs. The cottage is within easy walking distance of restaurants, shops, grocery, and harbors and is about 100 yards from the Inner Harbor Park, which has public tennis courts, a boardwalk for bird watching and fishing, and a gazebo for picnicking. From here you can launch your canoe or kayak for paddling around the harbor or out to nearby Deer Island. World famous Shearwater Pottery is just beyond the harbor, a pleasant walk from the cottage down a live-oak-lined street and across the little Outer Harbor bridge, a distance of about a quarter mile. The internationally renown Walter Anderson Museum of Art is six blocks away, and the new Frank Geary-designed George Ohr Museum is just across the bay bridge in Biloxi.

The fishing is great. You can bring your own boat (there's room in the driveway) and launch it from the free public boat ramp at the outer edge of the harbor (less than a mile away) or arrange for a fishing charter or a private guide to take you out to nearby Horn and Ship islands, part of the Gulf Islands National Seashore wilderness area, The National Seashore museum, picnic areas, and Park Service boat launch are about two miles away. The Biloxi Bay Bridge with its pedestrian walkway and bicycle path is about a mile away, a perfect place for sunsets. There two golf courses in Ocean Springs, the closest about two miles away (Gulf Hills Golf Club) and another, about five miles away (St. Andrew's Golf Club). There are others in nearby Biloxi and Gautier.

The cottage has a very private screened porch looking out at live oaks, sago palms, and camellias. The porch furniture includes a rocker, an old-fashioned glider, chaises, and dining table and chairs. This is a great place to enjoy the morning bird symphony. The house is newly remodeled and has porcelain tile throughout with Oriental and Mexican rugs. The kitchen is well furnished for people who like to cook and entertain. A bi-weekly farmers market in nearby Biloxi provides fresh vegetables year-round, and the Ocean Springs Saturday market offers organic produce, local food specialties, and live music.

Ocean Springs is the oldest French settlement on the Gulf Coast, founded in 1699 by the LeMoyne brothers, the younger of whom later went on down the coast to found New Orleans. It’s a town of live oaks, magnolias, small shops, and art galleries and contrasts sharply with the condos and casinos to the west. Visitors come for bird-watching, fishing, uncrowded family beaches, and to visit the Walter Anderson Museum of Art and Shearwater Pottery. Biloxi casinos are two miles away. Beaches, restaurants, grocery, shops, and museums are less than a mile away, so this is a great town for bicycling and walking. New Orleans is about 90 miles away, an easy day trip; Keesler Air Force Base, 12 miles; and Mobile and Dauphin Island, 50 miles.

The house is handicapped-accessible through the screened porch (one step of about four inches in each doorway). The bathroom won’t accommodate a wheelchair, but a walker is fine. The two bedrooms and the bathroom open onto the same small hall, so the bathroom is just a few steps from the bedrooms.

Although I don't normally take pets, I make exceptions. Please check with me in advance if you have a small dog (under 20 lbs).

I ACCEPT PAYPAL or personal checks. Please note maximum occupancy of six and restrictions regarding smoking. Thanks for looking!

Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a wonderful 2-month stay at the Green Cottage. It was our fourth visit to Ocean Springs and our second visit to this cottage. Walks to East Beach were a daily event. Downtown is nearby as well. The house is comfortable and the screened porch is wonderful. We opened all the windows and reveled in our luck to have escaped the north in winter. You can cook because everything that you might need is provided or you can enjoy many great places to eat. We recommend Kwitzky's for drinks, Maison d'Lu for lunch and the Porter St. Bistro for dinner. In Biloxi ,go to the Half Shell for raw oysters and be sure to support the local artists at the Art House in Ocean Springs and Studio 782 in Biloxi . Walk the bridge, meet the people -- it's a great place. You will find the owner, Rosemarie, hospitable and accommodating and if you're lucky, the local turtles will visit you at the back door. We highly recommend.

I'm a New Orleans native living in Atlanta, and I spend as much time as possible in Ocean Springs. I enjoy meeting my vacation renters, who come from all over the world.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1995

There's something magical about Ocean Springs. I bought the house within 48 hours of my first visit to the town.

I enjoy the beautiful, green surroundings, the quiet, the friendly neighbors, proximity to the Gulf and to the little harbors and the wildlife there, the art and pottery community, and morning coffee on on the front porch. My favorite walks are across Biloxi bridge or along East Beach at sunset.

CHARMING HOUSE LOVELY TOWN PERFECT GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
We've stayed in the Green Cottage several times -- this year for 6 weeks. Everything we need is provided in this welcoming house and the location is ideal Distance to both Front Beach and East Beach is walkable, as is Ocean Springs' downtown area. Tennis courts, usually unoccupied, only one block away, small harbor very close by as is Shearwater Pottery. Kitchen fully equipped and screened porch is private to you but perfect for viewing the locals as they pass by. If you cook, the kitchen is fully equipped, and if you don't, Ocean Springs and Biloxi offer multiple excellent dining opportunities. We found it impossible to resist a great beer at the Flying Irishmen on Government Street, the apple turnovers and strawberry Bavarian cream cake at French Kiss Pastries on Washington Street, and the sublime oysters at the Half Shell Oyster House in Biloxi.

We love this house and town and keep returning. We highly recommend it.

OUTSTANDING IN EVERY WAY

  • 5 of 5
The listing description and photos of the cottage cannot fully reflect the wonderful stay we enjoyed to the utmost. The cottage is very attractive, clean, and the views were outstanding. It has every convenience possible. It is in a perfect setting so we could enjoy the beautiful flowers, trees and plants yet maintain complete privacy. It was close enough to the harbor, beach and within walking distance of charming Ocean Springs where shops are unique and the food is fabulous. We recommend the property without reservation. The owner was most helpful and understanding. We hope to return as often as possible.

QUIET & PRIVATE, CLOSE TO EVERYTHING

Quiet & Private, Close to Everything
  • 5 of 5
We had a great time at this cottage! It had everything we needed and more than we asked for. The owner stocked the place with many good, recent novels and DVDs though we were too busy visiting the shops to take advantage of them. The house also had Wi-Fi capability which meant we could work (when necessary) while being out of town. We liked having a screened in porch and carport. The house is within easy walking distance to the beach. We plan to go back to Ocean Springs in 2014. Hope this place is available to rent when we schedule the trip!
