The Bayou Log Cabin is a genuine 1100 square foot cabin and located along the banks of Davis Bayou. The Bayou Log Cabin is situated under live oaks on a quiet and tranquil bend in the bayou. It is nestled right next door to the owners' home at the back of a small neighborhood. Life at the cabin is easy and comfortable, much like a tall glass of iced tea on a warm summer evening. With its open and airy floor plan, you never feel boxed in, and with the full length back porch, you can sit and watch the wildlife of the bayou go about their daily routine.

About Wendy Hollingsworth
We live right next door to the cabin and are long-time residents of Ocean Springs. There are so many things about Ocean Springs that we love...the friendliness of the people, Tato Nut doughnuts, boat rides to the islands, kayak rides on the bayou, shopping downtown, the harbor on summertime weekends, etc.

What makes this Cabin unique
This property is located in the city limits and at the back of a small neighborhood, but from the back porch, it feels like it is nestled in a quiet country setting. The deep back porch is a great place to unwind with a good book or just to watch the tide roll in and out. Your coffee just tastes better on the back porch of the cabin. And, if you need anything, we are right next door to help.

Beautiful, Peaceful Log Cabin
This gorgeous log cabin was a perfect get-away for my husband and I. The back porch overlooks the bayou. We spent many an hour there, just relaxing, reading, and watching the wildlife. It's a close drive to downtown Ocean Springs for shopping and restaurants. The casinos are only a 10 - 20 minute drive away. The beach and National Seashore are a 10 minute drive. It's an amazing spot to enjoy both nature and city life.
perfect spot for a couple
The private setting and views were terrific. The cabin is best for a couple as the bathroom entrance is through the bedroom. The loft is accessed by a ladder and could be tricky getting down. Kevin our host was very helpful. We had a great time.

Great place to stay. Love be the bayou!!!
This spot is clean and homey .. not that far from Ocean. Springs and still a quiet serene place to enjoy some down time. Lovely scenery !!!! We have stayed here for years and expect to go back there when coming to Mississippi to visit family...
Great accomodations and beautiful view of bayou!
Had a pleasant and comfortable stay. Location near lots of activities, yet is a quiet retreat. Plan to stay again soon.
I took my husband for his birthday and absolutely enjoyed our stay. I was concerned about it being in a neighborhood, but when you are in the back of the cabin, you don't even remember that there are houses around you. Very peaceful and quite. Did not Kayak, was afraid of the GATORS:) The cabin is just lovely, every detail has been thought of. The decorations and furniture is just perfect! Highly recommend that you stay in this beautiful and quaint cabin.
Wendy, thank you for all the details!
Relaxing get away
This cabin is a lovely place to stay. It is in a residential area in Ocean Springs and very convenient to the beaches, piers, restaurants and stores. However once you get to the cabin you notice the peace and quiet. The back porch overlooks a bayou and the owner has a dock for fishing. The inside is nice and spacious yet cozy feeling. There is a loft, which was very cute but not needed as it was just me and my husband. The bedroom was roomy with a comfortable bed, and the bathroom large. The owners provided fruit and goodies in the kitchen, and plenty of towels for our stay. They were available if we had questions but also gave us our privacy. There house is next door to the cabin. Would highly recommend this cabin for s Mississippi coast get away.
Biloxi casinos are within 15 minutes of property, Horn Island charter trips are available, Deep sea fishing charters, Davis Bayou Kayak tours, 90 minutes to New Orleans, 45 minutes to Mobile, Multiple golf courses nearby, Private Airport
