Overview

Ocean Springs Cabin Rental Photos and Description

The Bayou Log Cabin, nestled at the back of a small neighborhood and located along the banks of Davis Bayou, is a genuine 1100 square foot cabin. The Bayou Log Cabin is situated under live oaks on a quiet and tranquil bend in the bayou. Life at the cabin is easy and comfortable, much like a tall glass of iced tea on a warm summer evening. With its open and airy floor plan, you never feel boxed in, and with the full length back porch, you can sit and watch the wildlife of the bayou go about their daily routine.

A drive of a few minutes will get you to any one of our downtown eateries or boutiques. Ocean Springs is home to many wonderful restaurants and bistros, such as Phoenecia Gourmet Cuisine, Leo's Pizza, BB's Poboys, Mellow Mushroom, The Manhattan Grill, Chef Scott's Sushi house, Bayview Gourment, Al Fresco's Italian Bistro, Mikey's on the Bayou, McElroy's on the Bayou, Cheryl's Steak House, and our Regis and Kelly and Food Network star barbecue joint, The Shed. In addition to the many wonderful eateries, Ocean Springs has boutiques for any price range. Quaint gift shops, pottery, jewelry, art, you name it...Ocean Springs downtown shops has it. We are an artist colony, after all! If eating and shopping aren't your cup of tea, visit the Walter Anderson museum of Art, Shearwater Pottery, the Mary C. O'Keefe Cultural Center, or the Colmer Visitor's Center at Gulf Islands National Seashore Park. Golfing your thing? If so, the Mississippi Gulf Coast has several top rated golf courses. Gulf Hills, The Preserve, Shell Landing, Mississippi National, Sunkist, Grand Bear, and many other courses are available to suit your needs. You want high rolling excitement, visit any of our many coastal casinos. You want a treat that encompasses shopping, art, food, music, and companionship, come to Ocean Springs the first weekend in November for Peter Anderson Festival, our Southern Living magazine top rated festival. There will sure be something for your liking. There is always something to do on the beautiful Mississippi Gulf Coast. Come and see what we have to offer and relax at the Bayou Log Cabin.

About Wendy Hollingsworth

We live right next door to the cabin and are long-time residents of Ocean Springs. There are so many things about Ocean Springs that we love...the friendliness of the people, Tato Nut doughnuts, boat rides to the islands, kayak rides on the bayou, shopping downtown, the harbor on summertime weekends, etc.

What makes this cabin unique

This property is located in the city limits and at the back of a small neighborhood, but from the back porch, it feels like it is nestled in a quiet country setting. The deep back porch is a great place to unwind with a good book or just to watch the tide roll in and out. Your coffee just tastes better on the back porch of the cabin. And, if you need anything, we are right next door to help.

Serenity

  • 5 of 5

If it's peace and quite, solitude and serenity you're after look no further. On the back porch of this lovely cabin you'll hear nothing but the chirping of birds and the churring of squirrels. Well, that and occasion train horn in the distance .

The cabin is spacious, comfortable, immaculately clean, and pleasantly situated on the upper reaches of Davis Bayou.

Comfortable bed, nice shower, fully equipped kitchen, TV in great room and bedroom, which we turned on only once as the Masters was in progress and a friend was on the leaderboard. Dozens and dozens of DVDs for those who enjoy movies. And also a washer and dryer!

The owners live next door only 50 feet away, but the cabin is situated such that you enjoy comfortable privacy on the back porch where we spent long hours with cocktails reading every afternoon and evening, and morning.

We will never again have the occasion to visit this area, but if we did we would stay here again in a heartbeat.

An A-plus experience on every count. Oh, and also... Wendy is amazingingly quick in responding to emails and offers you her cell phone to contact her during your stay if you need anything at all.

If you're visiting Ocean Springs you need to stay here.

Beautiful View

  • 4 of 5

We stayed a week in January and it wasn't that cold. Beautiful view from inside and the back porch. Very close to downtown shopping and plenty of good restaurants to choose from. Not that far from other cities on the Gulf coast also. Had a wonderful time and will be back. Cabin was very comfortable and had everything that you needed.

very enjoyable retreat

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our cabin on the bayou. It was comfortable and had many nice extras such as lots of DVD's, maps of the area, books, internet and even fresh picked red grapefruit. Just sitting on the porch reading or looking at the bayou and beautiful lavender wisteria was entertainment itself. (Just be sure to bring "skin so soft" for the bugs!) And the area has lots to see & do if you want. Kayaking on the bayou was nice. We both would recommend this charming cabin if you like a peaceful place, yet still handy to shopping etc.

Pleasant and quiet

  • 4 of 5

This is more spacious than the photos indicate and the back patio is wonderful overlooking the bayou.

It was raining the whole time we were here but it was nice hanging around this place reading.

The location is great, not too far from downtown or from I10.

The loft ladder and railing isn't very solid for such height so we ended up putting the kids down on the nice futon on the main floor. The bed in the master bedroom is very comfortable.

Wendy is very responsive.

Perfect family weekend.

  • 5 of 5

We had the perfect weekend. Though the weather was a bit chillier than we had hoped. We were content and comfortable in the cabin. The cabin had everything we needed and more. We enjoyed Mississippi but felt no need to leave the cozy cabin. Having the beautiful view of the bayou and a great DVD collection. It was the perfect retreat from the snow and craziness of everyday life. Going home this morning was truly sad. We would have loved to stay forever.
