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.

The Owner purchased this house in 1906
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.
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.
While the property is lovely and dog friendly, the local beach ordinances forbid dogs on the beach. We will not return for that reason.
Love staying here. We stay 2 to 3 times a year. Best place ever for vacay with a big dog.
Very cute & charming, loved the decor & old style. & the porch is to die for. The pool was very clean & the grounds well maintained. It was very clean upon arrival. The only thing for us was there being no tub- hard to bathe a little one- maybe a little more lighting would be nice but would definitely visit again.
Private & peaceful, loved the pool & proximity to the beach. Unique & had everything we needed.
This was a fantastic get-away! The Teddy Roosevelt house is a well-stocked, beautiful home. Perfect for what we were looking for. Really appreciate that the property is dog friendly as well. Our four-legged baby loved the 2 acres to run and play in. We enjoyed walks on the beach, visiting the local fish monger at the docks and relaxing. We'll definitely be back. Thanks for sharing your beautiful home.
Small, but packing a lot of amenities. Wonderful outdoor space with a fireplace, and all fenced in. Expansive, well groomed property that is perfect for the dogs, and hosting some friends for the day. Beautiful view of the beach and sunset, pool was a fantastic extra. Home was very comfortable, and very cozy. One drawback (not the fault of owner), the train runs close by and holds its horn too long and too loud. Wear your earplugs when sleeping. Best place on Earth for serenity when needing to get a stress reducer.
This is a wonderful cottage, in a fantastic location. This is our 2nd winter visit with our pup, and the sun and 70 degree weather was perfect. The Lanai with large fireplace is a perfect spot to look down to the beach (a previous reviewer complained that it was set back too far from the beach, but the grounds are lovely, and the distance reduces the beach road noise). The rooms are large, and spacious. The kitchen is incredibly well-equipped, with a full size fridge- handy since we visit family, and love having them over for cookouts. Plenty of towels, including beach towels, washer, dryer, flashlights, extra lightbulbs, etc.- everything functioning perfectly. Our pup was in 7th heaven- able to peruse the entire property from the Lanai, and scout around the fully fenced acreage. Tho' we have never needed her attention, the local manager is just a few blocks away. Always very responsive during the reservation process.
The area has recovered from the Katrina devastation, with many wonderful restaurants nearby, and lovely shops to peruse in "downtown" Pass Christian, and nearby Bay St. Louis. We will look forward to returning, hopefully for increasingly longer winter stays.
WARNING: Map location is not accurate we are on the beach. The entrance is on the street one block off the beach. If you go down to the Harbor you can buy fish, shrimp and oysters. Super fresh but you have to clean the fish.
