Overview

Pass Christian House Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Our cabin was on tour with the Pass Christian Historical society May 1, 2011. Come stay in a historic site.

The only remaining part of the estate of Governor Parker who, in 1915, hosted a visit here by Teddy Roosevelt. The log cabin lies in over 2 acres of garden and is set back from the more than 190 feet of beach front to allow for privacy and tranquility. The cabin was one of the very few structures to survive Katrina, though it was halved in size by the storm. With the beach at its feet, it is also only a short distance further to the picturesque port and to the center of Pass Christian which is being rebuilt. It is then a short drive along the coast into the hustle and bustle of Gulfport and its casinos.

The cabin is totally renovated with luxury fittings in the bathroom and an ingenious kitchen area. There are just 2 rooms, as well as the bathroom, the bedroom with King’s size bed, and 42” plasma screen, with cable TV and wireless internet. The main room, which serves as sitting room, dining room and kitchen has a dining table seating 6 and a queen size sofa bed. Both rooms open onto a large screen porch (the former great room) ideal for enjoying relaxing drinks, and on cooler nights sitting in front of the wood-burning fireplace (easily lit by gas) or generally sitting and admiring the extensive garden, under the ceiling fan with a wonderful view over the gulf. There is a fenced pool in the garden, a short walk from the cabin. The property is fenced.

About The Owner

New Orleans native, spent summers in the 'Pass' growing up.

The Owner purchased this house in 1906

Why The Owner chose Mississippi

My grandparents bought this property in the early 1900's.. My grandfather had the cabin build in the 1920's. Teddy Roosevelt visited a part of the property in about 1915, that part was added in 1969 to the original plot, it is mentioned in Roosevelt's diaries.

What makes this house unique

Just sitting in the pool on a hot evening talking and looking at the stars. Some mornings in the spring or fall there is very heavy fog on the beach, beautiful for photographing. The sunrises and sunsets especially in the winter months can be fantastic, when the sun rises and sets over the water. Walking on the beach, especially in the winter months, when you have the beach to yourself and can commune with the sea birds. Birding in the garden especially during the fall and spring migration. The birds are gathering in the fall to gain strength before they set off over the Gulf. One visitor commented in our guestbook at the house on how excited they were to see so many Bluebirds in the garden. There are always birds, just many more during the migration. Come and add to your life list.

Guestbook comments from the manager

While the property is lovely and dog friendly, the local beach ordinances forbid dogs on the beach. We will not return for that reason.

On the beach in the Pass

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed our stay here. The cottage is quaint and functional and the location is superb. We liked the small pool though it needed an algae cleaning even after the "pool guy" made a visit. The grounds are lovely but there are grass camouflaged holes that can trap an older person (happened to me). There are no curtains or blinds and though the property has privacy it is unnerving to be undressed when the "pool guy" drives right in past the cottage and the windows are uncovered. It is very dark there even with lights on. The only TV is in the bedroom. Two would be nice, but if only one we feel it should be in the public space. I do not think we will stay again but would recommend it with the above caveats.

Spent 6 weeks in the cottage...

And loved every single day! The house was clean, functional, and comfortable. The yard was awesome for my dogs, and the porch was a huge bonus. Very clean and well maintained. Highly recommended!

Peaceful weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I needed a long weekend to unplug from hectic work schedules. We loved staying in the Teddy Roosevelt house. It had everything we needed! I loved being able to walk the large yard and the view of the Gulf was perfect. We will be staying here again!!

Thoroughly enjoyable!

  • 5 of 5

We were anxious to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. My husband was diagnosed with cancer last year and spent the summer and part of fall doing radiation treatments. Needless to say, we did not take a vacation. This year (he is clear now!) we opted to head toward the ocean and bring our two dogs. The "Teddy" could not have been more perfect! We spent a majority of the time at the pool and on the screened porch. The town was oh so cute and a short walk away - great restaurants and hospitality!

The cabin itself had everthing!! Very well stocked, right down to games (Scrabble was a favorite), books and movies. The dogs loved running on the fenced two acres and lounging on the porch with us - fires at night were yet another fun little extra. A wonderful relaxing place to stay. Highly recommend this wonderful little piece of heaven!

CANCELLATIONS – Cancellations made 45 days or longer before your rental
will incur a cancellation fee of $100. Cancellations from 45 days to 30 days
before the rental will incur a cancellation fee of $200. We try to be very
fair, but last minute cancellations are very disruptive. This fee also
applies to longer rentals that are eligible for a full refund as described
below.

Cancellation inside of 30 days or early departure does not warrant any
refund of rent unless the unit is re-rented for that time period. We will
attempt to re-rent as many of your dates as is possible at the last minute at
the best possible rate based on our judgment given how last minute the
cancellation is. Refunds and returns of security deposits will be processed on
cleared funds within 2 weeks of cancellation. If you are concerned about
having to cancel your trip, we suggest that you look into trip insurance that
is available and offered by many reputable firms online and otherwise.

MONTHLY RESERVATION CANCELLATIONS - Monthly renters must cancel Sixty (60)
days prior to check-in. Monthly renters who make a change that results in
a shortened stay must do so at least Sixty (60) days prior to check-in.
These cancellations are eligible for a full refund. Refunds for cancellations
or shortened stay changes made less than 60 days prior to check-in will be
made only if the unit is re-rented for that cancelled time period.

Rentals of more than 7 nights and less than 30 days must cancel Forty Five
(45) days prior to check-in or shall forfeit any deposits made unless the
unit is re-rented for that time period.

Rentals of 7 nights or less must cancel Thirty (30) days prior to check-in
or shall forfeit any deposits made unless the unit is re-rented for that
time period

Bookings will only be confirmed upon payment of the $250
security deposit and 50% of the total rent due. If mailing a check, you will need
to send 2. One for the damage deposit and the other for 50% of total due.
The remaining rental balance, if any, is due no later than 30 days before
the start of the rental period. If paying by credit card, 5% will be added to
the total.
