ON THE BEACH, TEDDY ROOSEVELT STAYED HERE

Pass Christian House Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Our cabin was on tour with the Pass Christian Historical society May 1, 2011. Come stay in a historic site.

The only remaining part of the estate of Governor Parker who, in 1915, hosted a visit here by Teddy Roosevelt. The log cabin lies in over 2 acres of garden and is set back from the more than 190 feet of beach front to allow for privacy and tranquility. The cabin was one of the very few structures to survive Katrina, though it was halved in size by the storm. With the beach at its feet, it is also only a short distance further to the picturesque port and to the center of Pass Christian which is being rebuilt. It is then a short drive along the coast into the hustle and bustle of Gulfport and its casinos.

The cabin is totally renovated with luxury fittings in the bathroom and an ingenious kitchen area. There are just 2 rooms, as well as the bathroom, the bedroom with King’s size bed, and 42” plasma screen, with cable TV and wireless internet. The main room, which serves as sitting room, dining room and kitchen has a dining table seating 6 and a queen size sofa bed. Both rooms open onto a large screen porch (the former great room) ideal for enjoying relaxing drinks, and on cooler nights sitting in front of the wood-burning fireplace (easily lit by gas) or generally sitting and admiring the extensive garden, under the ceiling fan with a wonderful view over the gulf. There is a fenced pool in the garden, a short walk from the cabin. The property is fenced.

Guestbook comments from the manager
While the property is lovely and dog friendly, the local beach ordinances forbid dogs on the beach. We will not return for that reason.

New Orleans native, spent summers in the 'Pass' growing up.

The Owner purchased this house in 1906

My grandparents bought this property in the early 1900's.. My grandfather had the cabin build in the 1920's. Teddy Roosevelt visited a part of the property in about 1915, that part was added in 1969 to the original plot, it is mentioned in Roosevelt's diaries.

Just sitting in the pool on a hot evening talking and looking at the stars. Some mornings in the spring or fall there is very heavy fog on the beach, beautiful for photographing. The sunrises and sunsets especially in the winter months can be fantastic, when the sun rises and sets over the water. Walking on the beach, especially in the winter months, when you have the beach to yourself and can commune with the sea birds. Birding in the garden especially during the fall and spring migration. The birds are gathering in the fall to gain strength before they set off over the Gulf. One visitor commented in our guestbook at the house on how excited they were to see so many Bluebirds in the garden. There are always birds, just many more during the migration. Come and add to your life list.

QUIET GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
We were very pleased with our stay at "Teddy" which was a surprise trip my wife had planned as a part of my 60th birthday celebration.
This was a very clean place to stay, just as described. It's a small cabin, but perfect for a couple looking for a special getaway. We really loved the huge rock fireplace outside on the screened in porch and used it each night of our stay. Our only suggestion would be to have some firewood provided as we had a hard time finding any to buy nearby.
The outside grounds around "Teddy" are equally inviting and are even fenced in if you were to bring a dog. There is even a fenced in pool if the weather was warm enough. The cabin is situated on a very large piece of property with a long distance view of the gulf.
The cabin is very well stocked and has all the comforts of home. The kitchen has a cooktop, oven, dishwasher , and refrigerator. There is even a high end washer and dryer for your use.
Another suggestion which would have been interesting to have at the cabin would have been a book, pictures, etc., that told a little history about the cabin, property, and surrounding area.
We look forward to a return visit to "Teddy".

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind comments. It is hard to provide books and photos when everything was destroyed by Katrina. I love your suggestion, thank you for the assignment.

GREAT FENCED YARD ON THE BEACH

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I took a winter get away with our dog son. This house was great! With a large fenced area the size of four big lots, we felt safe letting our dog free to explore. An added asset was that the Gulf was directly across the street & a gate made easy access. We found the house clean and comfortable, the neighborhood quiet, & our neighbors friendly. We would stay here again. Easy, scenic drives to sites in Bay St. Louis.

NEW ENGLAND TRANSPLANT

  • 3 of 5
Yep, nice property. I did not stay at the property. However really thought it was a great place. Perfect location, lots of land and the greatest little kitchen combo ever. I stayed with my dogs not far from this location while 2 of my New England friends did for a week. Yes, I rented the place with the intern to stay there but decided not to stay alone. When my friends arrived there was no wood, the shower handle was broken and there is a family of Bats in the upper Master Bedroom window. Two bats flew into the house. Several emails have been sent to Rebecca O'Dwyer. First answer regarding firewood, no it is not provided, (why is a fireplace advertised and no firewood?) it is a gas fueled fireplace but it needs wood, 2nd I'll send the plumber out to fix the shower, never saw the plumber and the fixture was still broken when my friends departed, the bats remain. I have not receive my security deposit and my pet deposit seeing as my pets did not stay their. Sure wish the owner was more involved! They have a lovely piece of paradise. Ones more thing the pool filters were totally clogged with leaves. We cleaned them and the pool was happy.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. We take your credit card numbers but do not charge them unless there is a problem. Your pet deposit was returned. The shower handle has been fixed, sleepy Pass Christian is sometimes a bit slow at responding. We don't supply wood, in order to keep our rental fees low. Wood is readily available at local stores in winter. The large screen porch is designed to keep insects and animals out, please keep the screen doors closed. There are screens on all the doors and windows that open except the front and back entry doors. Hope you will come back and stay with your dog. All our tenants say their dogs love the 2 acre space to enjoy.

WHAT A HIDDEN JEWEL?

  • 5 of 5
Can't say enough about the Teddy Cabin. Just spent 4 nights and hated to leave. Everything was perfect. The charm and warmth of this place was overwhelming. Cool nights by the outdoor fireplace were so romantic and peacful. The home was exceptionally clean and had everything needed for a restful stay. We will back as soon as possible.

HISTORIC CHARM AND MODERN AMENITIES!

  • 5 of 5
Despite being caught in the early January deep freeze, we loved everything about our stay in Teddy's Cabin. It's well appointed and comfortable; peaceful and serene; and close enough to New Orleans for easy day trips. The shops and restaurants in Pass Christian are delightful with friendly people ready to offer guidance to tourists. Being across the street from the beach was wonderful, and we loved the big screened patio with stone fireplace. We'll be back!
