While secluded, the wireless internet and cable television keep you in touch with the world…if you decide to check in!
Located just a few minutes’ drive from the house are Mississippi beaches, gaming casinos, and an outlet mall for fun and shopping. If fishing is your game, bring your boat, kayak, or canoe the Jourdan River, Bay of Saint Louis, and Gulf of Mexico are all accessible from the boat dock; or just fish from the backyard. The grill on the ground floor lets you grill’em up fresh! For the Ecologist, the Jourdan River Blueway Trail literally begins at our home and invites canoers and kayakers to explore an 8.5 mile trail through coastal floodplains and a riverine ecological system. The tranquil waters of the upper Jourdan River offer a haven for birds, wildlife, and paddlers! From Bayou Talla, the blueway trail guides kayakers and canoe enthusiasts past the artesian springs, hardwood forests, and through the natural beauty of these wetlands. Parking is available for multiple vehicles and boat trailers with a covered carport for one. There is a public boat launch just down the street but far enough away to not affect the tranquility of this coastal treasure.
