About Joy Mehrtens
I retired after teaching for 24 years at Our Lady Academy, an all-girls Catholic high school just a couple of blocks from my home here in the Bay. My teaching experience dates back to New Orleans where I started my career as a church musician and teacher in Jefferson, just up the river from Orleans Parish. I continue to serve as a music director at First United Methodist Church in Gulfport.
Joy Mehrtens purchased this Guest House in 1998
Why Joy Mehrtens chose Bay St Louis
As a young traveler passing through Bay Saint Louis on Highway 90, I never had any idea what a hidden gems this little town is. Imagine my surprise when I finally made my way off the state highway to find the most delightful, friendly town I have ever imagined. So, it didn't take long for me to realize my dream and find a property that could be my long time residence. And I would like to share my discovery with you. Come visit and you just might find yourself wanting to stay forever!
What makes this Guest House unique
Bay Saint Louis has the perfect ambiance and location to relax and be close to the water and all it has to offer and still be within an hour's drive to the exciting and historic city of New Orleans. You can meander down our scenic highways or make a b-line to the city via Interstate 10 which runs 7 miles north of town. As New Orleans celebrates it's tricentennial, I am reminded that Bay Saint Louis was founded before New Orleans was and by the same explorers. I wonder how many people have made the connection between our namesake Louis, King of France and Louisiana?
