Overview

About the property

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.

Will be returning in the future!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin, yard, and pool was everything we expected it to be. We had a family of 6 and 3 dogs and never felt over crowded. The screened in room was perfect for my dogs to dry off in after visiting the beach and the fence around the pool was nice to let my dogs run in while we relaxed in the pool. The view is great and just a short walk to the beach. My only concern was the amount of termites that would come out at night if you left the lights on. This meant that we had to sit in the dark on the porch at night, which wasn't a big deal, I just wish we could've enjoyed sitting outside with a light on. If you are a dog lover and insist on bringing your fur babies on vacation, this rental is perfect! It's the most accommodating rental I've stayed in with my dogs. We plan on returning for future vacations!

Charming - great porch & pool

  • 5 of 5

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.

Vacation Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely review! February is a wonderful time at the Pass. The fresh seafood is a treat to get straight off the dock. We welcome your four-legged baby and you back soon.

So cozy yet so roomy!

  • 4 of 5

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.

fair, but last minute cancellations are very disruptive. This fee also

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.
