Ocean Springs Cottage Rental Photos and Description

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

This unique cottage is located directly on the beautiful Ocean Springs Harbor. Its large deck is a wonderful place to relax, and observe the sailboats and wildlife. Pelicans, Great Blue Herons, Night Herons , Egrets and Skimmers all frequent the harbor on a regular basis. You can easily walk to the beach or downtown Ocean Springs, which is filled with art galleries, boutiques and over 100 restaurants. The casinos are just 10 minutes across the Biloxi Bay. Charter boats are available for hire in the Ocean Springs Harbor and Biloxi Harbor. Several golf courses are within a short drive, as well as kayak rentals and tennis courts.

The Master bedroom is located upstairs in a loft, with the bathroom downstairs. The large living room has a queen size sofa sleeper. There is a kitchenette with a dining area. Bicycles are available with the cottage to cruise the shaded streets of this historic town up close. Our beaches are still uncrowded and our waters provide some of the best seafood in the country. Something wonderful is always in season: crabs, crawfish, oysters and always fish of all kinds. In season, you can even walk to the the harbor and buy fresh shrimp right off the boats.

Our Harbor House is filled with local art and whimsy. It was once part of the original Ocean Springs Yacht Club which was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. Thankfully, the Guest House survived and has been completely remodeled with love since the hurricane.

About Beth & Jack Riley

Jack & Beth Riley lived on this property until Hurricane Katrina rudely moved them out in 2005. However, they couldn't give up on this wonderful location and still retain the Harbor House for themselves, family, friends and visitors. The Riley's own a photography studio in downtown Ocean Springs.

Beth & Jack Riley purchased this cottage in 1998

Why Beth & Jack Riley chose Mississippi

This was once our home. We moved to Ocean Springs because of its small town charm and historic beauty.

What makes this cottage unique

Watching the boats and birds in the harbor from the deck; walking to the beach, buying fresh shrimp from a boat in the harbor or going to one of the many shops, galleries or restaurants in town.

An enjoyable experience

Loved our stay at the Harbor House! Great location. Walking distance to the beach and downtown. Offered everything we needed to make us comfortable. Nice back yard to play fetch with our dog Bella. We will definitely plan another visit next Fall!

We can't wait to come back!

Harbor House was absolutely lovely and the location could not be better. It was quiet but close to downtown and the beach. The sunrises were outstanding over the harbor. The local artwork was charming and inspired us to visit Shearwater Pottery where we picked up a couple pieces. This was the perfect getaway for us and our Cairn Terrier, Django. As a matter of fact, we've already booked our return for next year. Thank you Beth and Jack - we'll see you next November.

Love this cute cute cute little house!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I love staying here! It is perfect for the two of us. We have already reserved for next year and it will be the 4th year we have rented Harbor House. It is peaceful and perfect for getting in a little exercise! The walk to the bridge is just the right distance. The house is very clean and we love the decor. One day we are going to purchase a print of ocean springs harbor to remind us of our good times at Harbor House! See y'all next year!

Awsome place.

  • 5 of 5

The Harbor House was great!! Just what we were looking for. We stayed Sept. 29-Oct. 2. Spent most of our time on the deck. It was wonderful and has a great view. Very quiet and peaceful. We went fishing each morning and caught a lot of fish. Enjoyed walking around downtown Ocean Springs. They have a lot of awesome stores. It is a very dog friendly town. Saw people with their dogs everywhere. We might bring ours next time. Highly recommend Buzzy's for breakfast. Enjoyed burgers at Government St. Grocery and poboys at BB's. We plan on returning to Harbor House.
