MOSELEY DECORATED CAJUN COTTAGE- .WARM,HOMEY, ECONONOMICAL SNOWBIRDS WELCOME!CAL

Bay St. Louis Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Cajun cottages are small houses, 900 square feet, originally built to provide rental housing for working class families. Today, they are home to retired couples and young families as well as vacation rentals. 524 State St, also known as Alice Moseley Cottage, features walls made of 1x4 boards, with a tung oiled finish that gives the house a mellow amber hue. Most of the furniture is antique and the kitchen area is decorated with vintage advertising signs. Colorful framed prints made from original paintings done by my mother, Alice Latimer Moseley, decorate the walls. There are two bedrooms. The larger bedroom has a queen sized bed, with pillowtop mattress, the other bedroom has a double sized bed, also with a pillowtop. There is a living room/kitchen area divided by a breakfast bar. The kitchen is truly lovely, surrounded with windows. There is a stove, dishwasher, microwave, and toaster oven. The kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans, glasses and dishware. The washer and dryer are in a separate alcove, just off of the bathroom. The bathroom has a tub and shower. All towels and linens are provided. We also have a clothesline out back for you to hang your wet swimsuits and beach towels on! The neighborhood is a quiet one and it is important that our renters be as respectful of our neighbors as the neighbors will be to you. This is not a party house so please do not inquire about the house if you are planning a lot of cars or a lot of noise. There is a lovely completely fenced yard (privacy fence in back), an umbrella table and chairs and a bbq grill. The house is about 6 blocks from the beach and Old Town. It has Dish TV and wifi. ALL PROCEEDS FROM THE RENTAL OF THIS HOUSE GO DIRECTLY TO THE ALICE MOSELEY FOLK ART & ANTIQUE MUSEUM.

Guestbook comments from the owner
The seagulls and mockingbirds were having a spring party all week. The scent of ligustrum and honeysuckle filled the air. We made it for fun and music at Second Saturday and enjoyed the Pass Christian farmers market the next weekend. We bought great rosemary and garlic flat bread at Serious Bread, had breakfast and lunch at the Buttercup- dinner at the Hollywood Casino and 200 N. Beach (great macaroni and cheese) Easter Sunday we visited St Rose de Lima where photos of the beautiful altar mural can be purchased. This little cottage helped me come back to my pre-Katrina home and home of my heart. Many thanks

My name is Tim Moseley and I am the son of nationally acclaimed folk artist Alice Latimer Moseley. After losing my home in Hurricane Katrina, I bought this house to restore and remodel. I am a retired psychotherapist and longtime antique collector.

Geralyn Bleau purchased this cottage in 2006

When my mother was 79, she came to Bay St. Louis for a one day art show and I came from my home in Houston, TX to join her. We both fell in love with the hospitality of the Bay and the generosity of spirit of its people. About two months later my mom informed me that Bay St. Louis was where she wanted to live and shortly, thereafter, this 80 year old free spirit drove down from North Mississippi alone except for the company of her two dogs, Lily and Puff. I drove over from Houston and helped her move in and she had,in the next 15 years, some of the happiest years of her life. 'The people here are just so friendly,' she often said. I agreed and 4 years later moved here from Houston.

This house is ideal for travelers who like to spend more on eating out and shopping than on lodging. The house is newly redecorated, but is more homey than fancy. We are dog friendly and have a fenced back yard and are walking distance (1 mile) of restaurants and shops in the Main Street and Depot Districts of Bay St. Louis. We provide each renter with a hilarious Alice Moseley DVD and, if desired, a guided tour of the Alice Moseley Museum.

FAMILY VISIT

  • 3 of 5
this is an adorable home. tastefully decorated for its time period. kitchen has everything for a comfy stay. the downsides were, no table to eat at except 2 barstools so someone was always eating on the couch, which we don't do at home, you could hear everything going on outside, day and night, neighbors like to karaoke and play loud music till late in the night, even during the week. none of us (or the dogs) couldn't enjoy the yard because it was muddy from time we got there to being underwater thru the week we were there. horrible taking dogs out to potty. we couldn't use patio table and chairs, cuz it sits in the grass, which meant it was was to muddy and wet to even get to. the dishwasher is located at the back door, so it's basically unusable so we hand washed everything. dryer couldn't be left running cuz it wont shut off so that was very inconvenient at times. there is only sitting for 3 people in the small living room space so having visitors was impossible, which we hated. My son went to stay with his sister due to the lack of being able to sleep in the bedroom close to the street as the noises kept him awake. But it is a very cute and affordable place to stay if you don't mind all the things listed above.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I am sorry about the yard being wet....unfortunately, we cannot control the weather. In our description of the property, we clearly state that it is 900 square feet. We are proud of our cottage, as we have managed to include most amenities that people are looking for. The dishwasher is in full working order, and it is located on the flip side of the counter. It also clearly states that there is a breakfast bar separating the living room from the kitchen. We have never tried to pretend we are something that we are not. You never bothered to call us to complain about the terrible noise you were subjected to. While we cannot control the neighbors, we would have been happy to come and address the issue. We could have spoken to the neighbors (with whom we have a good working relationship), or have called in the authorities to deal with the problem. You also chose not to notify us about the dryer..it has since been repaired (and could have been repaired sooner, had you chosen to call us). We tried in every possible way to give you a memorable trip, even to the point of reducing the rates so that you could afford to come and visit your sick mother. We regret that you did not enjoy the Cajun Cottage, as so many other visitors have found it charming and homey.

CHARMING AND COMFORTABLE

  • 5 of 5
beautifully decorated, warm and engaging, this property felt like home away from home. the alice moseley prints and the historic cottage provide a sense of history, and the abundant cooking supplies and stacks of clean linens make you feel like you are staying with an old friend. cozy, charming and fun-- this sunlit space was a perfect addition to our amazing bay saint louis experience.

REST FOR THE WEARY

  • 5 of 5
After a hard day's work with Bay-Waveland Habitiat for Humanity it was great to come back to this cozy, well equiped cottage for a little rest before heading out to explore the town. Our group of four was comfortable and found everything we needed to prepare meals, enjoy hot showers, and sleep soundly. The cottage is a great value for the price, assessable to the down town areas and beach (by foot if you like a little walk) and in a quiet neighbor. We enjoyed our stay!

From the first email to the day we left everything was wonderful! The house is cute and served us well. It was very close to the venues for our niece's wedding on the bay/gulf. Had everything we needed and the beds were comfortable. On Friday before the wedding we went by the Museum. It is very interesting and wonderful paintings by Alice Moseley. Geri was so nice and we loved talking about Hurricane Katrina and the impact to her family as well as Bay St. Louis. When we got back to the house there was a wonderful book about Katrina. I would encourage you to visit the Alice Moseley Museum and the Yellow House! Thanks so much for sharing your home.

ASHTON AND DEBBIE. MONTROSE COLORADO

The place was clean and everything worked except the wireless which probably was a nice forced vacation from the internet. The neighborhood was quiet and the town which was a close drive to was a funky artsy type community. We happened to be staying while there was a music festival going on.

Had a nice dinner at one of the restaurant's on the beach road. Stuffed Flounder and fried green tomatoes.

We will be coming back.
