Close to the fun, yet feeling like you've gotten away from it all.

Viewing this Floor Plan will ensure there are no unpleasant surprises. If the floor plan will work for you and your group, you can be assured, the house & amenities will meet or exceed your expectations.

(The house advertised on this page).

RESERVING RIVER LOOKOUT

Each Vacation Home is unique and has different policies. Regardless if you book directly with the owner or through this website, the Rental Agreement must be returned signed. This document contains the terms under which the rental is taking place. Guests having an amazing stay, receiving their full damage deposit back, is the something both owner & guest desires. The Rental Agreement puts both parties on the same page, helping ensure everyone is happy.

River Lookout is in a quiet rural residential neighborhood. We ask that our guests respect that and the surrounding community.

The house & grounds are NOT suitable for large Parties, Weddings, etc. The rates on this site are based on a lodging stay, which generally does not involve visiting guests (non-overnight guests). Quotes are based on the information provided. If it is not stated there will be visitors, it is assumed there will not be any visitors, that the count of adults and children is accurate. Please provide Overnight guest & if anticipated, the visiting guest count with inquiries. Any details you wish to include on your desired stay are always appreciated.

While my work keeps me hopping, Please feel free email, call or text for more information.

PAYMENT:

Please be aware that we will never ask for a wire or bank transfers. Foreign Checks or Money Orders are also not accepted. We will initiate any payment request through secure sites that offer protection for you. If you wish to confirm that any email that comes from us is legitimate, please do not hesitate to call us.

RATES based on GUEST COUNT

In 2016, this site made changes that caused the River Lookout, and other homes that sleep a high people count, to be invisible with filtered searches. Knowing how many guests in the To have more "eyes" see this listing, the rate structure has been revamped. This change will allow smaller groups to book at much lower rates, closer to available dates or small groups to book further out for longer stays.... While still having rates for midsize to larger groups.

Here are some things you should know if your group is less than 9 people:

ROOM CONFIGURATION BASED ON SMALL GUEST COUNT:

1 - 4 PEOPLE *

Rate, Receive:

The Master bedroom & bath, common areas (includes sofa sleeper), & Hall bathroom. Guests have full use of house, except for 3 other Bedrooms (1 with Bunk beds, 1 King Bed & 1 Queen Bed + the 2 folding beds [stored in bunk room]).

5 - 6 PEOPLE *

Rate, Receive:

The Master bedroom & bath, Hall King Bedroom, common areas (includes sofa sleeper), & Hall bathroom. Guests have full use of house, except for 2 Bedrooms (1 with Bunk beds & 1 Queen Bed + the 2 folding beds [stored in bunk room]).

7 - 8 PEOPLE *

Rate, Receive:

Full access to the entire house, except the Bunk Bedroom & 2 folding beds.

9 + PEOPLE

Rate, Receive:

Full house.

NOTE:

1. Floor Plan available showing areas of house you will have access.

2. Rates Rentals for less than 8 people are available 3 - 6 weeks prior to an

available date.

3. Months prior to an available date, Minimum required stay may be longer than

what is posted here.

4. Because cleaning fee can't be adjusted on the "Book it Now" it has been

factored into the nightly rates, with smaller groups & the limited access to

sleeping areas based on people count.

THE RATES ARE BASED ON YOUR CHECK-IN & CHECK-OUT DATE BEING A SUN, MON, TUES, WED., or THURS.

Why? Because most of our bookings are 4 - 5 nights, taking place over the full weekend & rates have been based on those bookings.

For instance, most 4 NT bookings are Wed - Sun or Thurs - Mon. 5 NT bookings are Wed - Mon or Thurs - Tues.

Most weekly bookings are Sun - Sun or something like Wed - Wed.

All the above scenarios, have the booking taking place over the full weekend (both Friday and Saturday night).

Sometimes, which works GREAT, folks will book a Sunday to Thursday for 4 nights, avoiding the higher weekend rates... leaving those weekend nights, for the weekend traveler.

So what is the issue with a Saturday - Saturday stay? If you book a Sat - Sat stay, no one, Literally NO ONE is going to book a stay where they arrive the Sat of your departure or depart the Sat of your check in. So while rates are based on a week stay that will cross over 1 weekend, now this Sat - Sat (or Fri - Fri) booking will prevent a 2nd weekend from being booked, by 95% of our typical guests.

Based on booking history, if there is a check in or out, on a Sat (and generally the same applies to Friday), the dates prior to that check-in & check-out do not book.

Should you choose a Fri or Sat check in or out, the dates will be quoted but there will be an ADDED FEE for your desired dates.

About Patricia Dalton (504) 669-0548 Texts or calls - 8 AM - 8 PM Texts work best

Since I've been in my 20's I've owned long rental property and been involved with a family business that takes me to both Louisiana and Mississippi. I have a strong customer service background and am Little OCD.... In that, I like things to be perfect or very close to it. This services me very well in the Vacation Rental industry. From amenities you will find at the house to the systems use to get things done, I'm always striving to do things better & smarter.

For years, I've considered doing a vacation rental. I liked the idea of sharing my piece of paradise on the River. From my past knowledge of the Vacation Rental Industry, I knew that the vast majority of prospective renters would be people, like myself, wanting more than a hotel could offer & respectful of the Vacation Home they rented.

Being from the service industry, I pride myself on offering a clean, comfortable, as advertised, Vacation Rental. From the feedback I receive from guests, I know I've met or exceeded expectations.

As for me, my personality is down to earth, blue-collar, roll up the sleeves & get'er done. I solicit my guests for suggestions on what I can do to improve their stay in the future. So far, I've implemented just about every suggestion, that didn't present a liability issue.

I encourage you to check out the house's reviews. I never tire of hearing the house has once again delivered an exceptional vacation experience.

I realize you have many choices when choosing a Vacation Rental, I hope you choose either the River Lookout (sleeps up to 16) or The Great Escape River House (sleeps up to 27

Patricia Dalton (504) 669-0548 Texts or calls - 8 AM - 8 PM Texts work best purchased this house in 2004

Why Patricia Dalton (504) 669-0548 Texts or calls - 8 AM - 8 PM Texts work best chose Mississippi

Since 1996, I've enjoyed many weekends out here on the Biloxi River. Swam at the very beach you might decide to at the River Lookout. Because a previous owner had built up the land, this was about the only house sitting right on the ground. After Katrina, the City wanted me to tear it down. Thanks to a very creative Contractor, who suggested raising the roof and building the new house on the brick walls, I not only gained some much-needed storage (the old house is now a garage) but was able to completely redo the house's layout. I also added a large deck that offers a great view of the River. A view I could only have dreamed of before Katrina.

In 2015, a 14 ft x 30 ft in-ground swimming Pool and Hot Tub was added. Also above the massive upper deck, a 18 ft x 60 ft roof was added. This roof is a great cover for the upper deck and under that deck (ground level). Under the covered roof, I put a pool table, lighting, and ceiling fans. So even when the weather is poor, it's a fun place to hang out with friends and family. Another nice thing about being under cover, but not inside, is that smokers can enjoy a game of billiards, in the large outdoor room.

This Vacation Rental is situated in a rural area, close to I-10, perfect for the Vacationer who is headed off to Golf Courses, Shopping, Casinos, the Gulf of Mexico Beaches, or one of the 100's of other fun things to do on the Gulf Coast.

What makes this house unique

One thing I think is pretty unique, the River Lookout looks kind of modest from the street. This is a serious case of 'Don't Judge the Book by the Cover'. The River Lookout is elevated, but because the ground was previously built up, it is not as many steps as other River Front property. There is a large covered upper deck, right out the front door, with patio furniture, ceiling fans, and a pool table. This deck offers a really great view of the River. The River is just out back down a concrete path. The River, it's sandbar, beach (at most low tides), and even the short path through the woods (on an adjacent property my family owns) to the covered swing and bench area, guests of River Lookout often enjoy. Further down the path, is a large dock on this adjacent property. If you bring a boat, we allow guests of River Lookout to dock it there.

As a 4 bedroom, 2 full bath House, on the River, this is also a bit unique. Most Riverfront property is very small, often being just a single large room, or having one or two bedrooms and a bathroom. The expense associated with building a Home so far above the ground, often restricts its size. This house is a unique find on the River.

Now with the swimming pool, at a vacation rental in Gulfport, it is a rare find. I know of no other vacation rental on the Mississippi gulf coast that offers so much. Swimming pool, hot tub/spa, on the River, private River beach, scenic path through the woods, pavilion at river's edge, sleeps up to 16, access to dock if you wish to bring a boat. Less than 8 miles from the Gulf of Mexico beaches.

To top it off, this house, the River Lookout (sleeps up to 16), and can be rented with the Great Escape River House (sleeps up to 27), providing a unique vacation experience for up to 43 people. The 2 houses are within very easy walking distance, even though, they can not be seen from each house.

This and more is awaiting you at the River Lookout!

Very pleasant surprise!

  • 5 of 5

We didn't know what to expect, however upon our arrival we found the River Lookout house to be quite nice. The exterior of the property does not do the inside justice when compared with the larger property next door. In fact, my grandson excitedly remarked, "I guess you can't judge a book by its cover!". This is an excellent property for families and even couples wanting a nice retreat. The river and walking trails behind the property give you something extra to do. There was a pool table, swimming pool, bbq grill, and a canoe on the property that we enjoyed using. Although we had plenty of room, it might have been nice to have access to the one additional room that was unavailable to us. There were 7 of us, the majority being adults and some lacked privacy from having to double up and having to sleep in the living room😊? Of course I didn't mind because I had the master bedroom which was very spacious and we loved the showerhead in the master bath. Be sure you have access to a vehicle when visiting the area. Also be advised that you might not have cell phone service once you get on the road that leads to the property. When we arrived we had a slight issue entering the security code and had to drive out to the main road to contact the gentleman that takes care of the property. He was very responsive however and stopped by to make sure we were able to get in. He also came by later that evening to warn us that we might want to stay in for the night as rain to the north of us had caused the river to rise so we would not be able to travel back out to the main road until about 8:00 the next night! Luckily the house was well stocked with plenty of utensils and cookware and we had just visited a nearby Walmart for groceries. We were able to have a nice dinner that night, breakfast the next morning, and enjoy food from the grill the next day. The neighbors next door were also very nice and they also warned us about the river rising. Luckily the flooding did not affect us and we enjoyed a day in with the family playing, cards, pool, dominoes, and we even took the canoe around the yard (that's how much water there was! I'd never seen anything like that!) We also visited downtown Biloxi, downtown Gulfport, which was very nice and quaint, and the outlet mall that was a short ride from the property. Patricia was very responsive and hepful. Overall we enjoyed our family time. I would definitely consider staying here again!

  • 5 of 5

Very great experience. Nice get away vacation so relaxing. Home is so beautiful, clean and has everything you may possibly need. The pool was very fun for the kids, didn't leave the home at all while there. And, the dollar general right around the corner has everything didn't have to go anywhere else to get any groceries. We are definitely thinking of coming back. Hopefully soon! Love the place over all.

Very relaxing & perfect for our yearly getaway trip!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect and had everything we needed. We didn't leave the property the whole time we were there unless we needed something from Dollar General which was only a few minutes away. The pool and porch were our favorite spots. The washer & dryer was very appreciated during our stay. We would recommend this place to others for sure.

We had an excellent time staying at this house. It was well taken care of and well equipped with everything we needed to have a great vacation. The house was close to all of the adventures we experienced during our trip. We did not have any issues with the house. Everything was wonderful.

Car: necessary

GENERAL LOCATION:

The River Lookout is located in the city limits of Gulfport, a few minutes North of I-10, Exit 38, on the Biloxi River. The Biloxi River is the dividing line for much of Biloxi & Gulfport north of I-10, to give you an idea how close Biloxi is.

"HOW FAR TO THE BEACH?"

The Gulf of Mexico beaches are almost straight south, less than 8 miles away, on a 4 lane (2 headed north/2 headed south) lightly traveled road, with few lights. Except for a few minutes, around 5 PM when Gulfport experiences some rush hour, you will most likely be slowed down by the few traffic lights instead of other vehicles.

WHY CHOOSE RIVER LOOKOUT IF A DRIVE IS INVOLVED TO GO TO THE GULF BEACH?

I know if you are asking, this is an important factor to you and I want to point out that staying at a vacation house near the beach will still involve a walk across busy Highway 90; if you have small children or plan to take more than a towel, will not be fun. Where if you drive, there is plenty of easy parking south of 90, so when you exit your car, you are right on the beach. By driving, you can also choose to park where it is best suited for you and your group, either close to public showers and rest rooms, or perhaps near food, or even in a more secluded area.

NEAR BEACH - NEAR RAIL ROAD TRACKS

NEAR TRACKS?

EXPECT TRAIN WHISTLES ALL NIGHT.

Also, if you are considering a stay, in a Vacation House, close to the beaches, before signing on the dotted line of any rental agreement, I recommend seeing how close the house is to the rail road tracks. The trains run quite frequently, some nights as much as every hour, blowing their horns as they go. Often when people choose to return to Gulfport for a vacation, they mention this as the main factor for why they are not returning to the same vacation house they previously stayed.

LOCATION: "DO YOU GIVE TOURS OF THE HOUSE? CAN YOU GIVE ME THE ADDRESS?"

After extensive research on the trends in the Vacation Rental Industry, the overwhelming consensus is not only to NOT give out the Vacation property address; but also not to give its subdivision or general location. This is especially true if the Vacation Home is unique and easily identified from the exterior. Especially when you consider on-line calendars are posted saying exactly when the house will be vacant, when occupied & all the photos telling what can be found in the house and which room it is located in.

The Risk to the Vacation Home, its contents, the guest's safety, and the guest's peaceful enjoyment of the Great Escape River House can not be outweighed by the possible benefits of disclosing it's location to everyone who sends in an inquiry. This house received over 400 inquiries a year. Mostly from good folks who are "Just Looking," many who do book, and I'm sure a few with less than honorable intentions.

Of course we would never expect someone to book a house they didn't know the address. If you like the quote and are serious about booking, please submit the answers to questions at the bottom of email quote. The answers are used to fill in the blanks of the Rental Documents. Those documents will then be sent to you with the property address. At that time, Please check out the address on an map quest / google type search. If this location is not suitable for your stay, please let us know and we'll make the dates available for another group.

Please checkout:

(of course you will need to remove the spaces and replace the dot with a "." This commercial site blocks websites in the description area - but there is a spot on this page, in blue writing that says something like "click here to view house's unique website" which would take you to the house's home page website.

At the River Lookout's unique website, on its location page has mileage markers to popular destinations, allowing guests to see if the River Lookout is located just perfect to where they plan to travel while on vacation.

The Mississippi Gulf Coast has so much to offer. All the activities indicated can be done on the coast. Most within a few minutes of the River Lookout. Some you will want to bring your own gear, such as for photography, bring your camera, fishing in the back of the River Lookout, your fishing gear, golf your clubs. Of course if you pay to go deep sea fishing or parasailing, the operator will provide that gear.

No matter what you choose to do on the coast or at the River Lookout, you'll have a great time. It's a unique area and you'll be at one of the most unique houses on the coast.

While staying at the River Lookout, if you wish to bring a boat, let us know and we can give you the in's & out's of the River. Our boat is 24' but that's about as big as we would recommend bringing to the River. If its small enough or truck is strong enough, you may even be able to launch up the road at a little neighborhood launch.

Hi,
Thank you for considering a Stay!

Couple of things you should know:

1. This House, the River Lookout, has its own website and facebook page. Both contain many more photos than this site allows

2. This site has made it difficult for you to have direct contact with me, Patricia Dalton the Owner of this Property and my other listed house, The Great Escape River House. Both are very large vacation homes, combined sleeping over 40 people. To avoid things going sideways, I believe we've got to have good communications.

MINIMUM STAY
As dates approach, minimum stays are reduced. Regards of the default on this site, several months in the future, a short booking may be rejected, only because we'd hope to book 30 - 90 day stay in that time frame. A single weekend booked months in advance can prevent a long term rental particularly in the off season, January - mid March.

MONTHLY RATES:
Based on a 28 day month

TERMS
This site is pretty restrictive on payment terms. Let me know if you need unique payment terms. Generally this is not an issue, when booking months in advance.

I want to see River Lookout enjoyed by you & your loved ones.

Come Just once and you'll love it!
