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.

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.

Rest for the Weary

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.

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.
