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.
A drive of a few minutes will get you to any one of our downtown eateries or boutiques. Ocean Springs is home to many wonderful restaurants and bistros, such as Phoenecia Gourmet Cuisine, Leo's Pizza, BB's Poboys, Murky Waters, Mellow Mushroom, The Manhattan Grill, Chef Scott's Sushi House, Bayview Gourmet, Salvetti's Italian Grill, Mikey's on the Bayou, McElroy's on the Bayou, Cheryl's Steak House, and our Regis and Kelly and Food Network star barbecue joint, The Shed. In addition to the many wonderful eateries, Ocean Springs has boutiques for any price range. Quaint gift shops, pottery, jewelry, art, you name it...Ocean Springs downtown shops have it. We are an artist colony, after all! If eating and shopping aren't your cup of tea, visit the Walter Anderson Museum of Art, Shearwater Pottery, the Mary C. O'Keefe Cultural Center, or the Colmer Visitor's Center at Gulf Islands National Seashore Park. Golfing your thing? If so, the Mississippi Gulf Coast has several top rated golf courses. Gulf Hills, The Preserve, Shell Landing, Mississippi National, Sunkist, Grand Bear, and many other courses are available to suit your needs. If you want high rolling excitement, visit any of our many coastal casinos. For a treat that encompasses shopping, art, food, music, and companionship, come to Ocean Springs the first weekend in November for the Peter Anderson Festival, our Southern Living magazine top rated festival. There will sure be something for your liking. There is always something to do on the beautiful Mississippi Gulf Coast. Come and see what we have to offer and relax at the Davis Bayou Log Cabin.
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.
Wendy Hollingsworth purchased this cabin in 2013
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.
If you want a quiet, serene, peaceful atmosphere; this is the place you want to go! My husband and I COMPLETELY enjoyed a TOO SHORT weekend at this homey and comfortable cottage. We were able to enjoy a fantastic view of the Bayou all day long right from the front of the cottage. A nice peaceful porch with comfortable seating will enable you to enjoy the sounds of nature while watching the fish jump in the bayou all at the same time. Your hostess and host are right next door in case you need anything or have any questions. They also have this cabin so well stocked with everything you could possible want or need is readily available! We even had fresh fruit left for us on the table upon our arrival. We enjoyed fishing and kayaking in the Bayou right from the front yard. Also, our dog was permitted to come along with us, which was very helpful as well! From the time you enter this cottage until you leave, you are in a complete relaxation state. I honestly didn't want to leave this morning at checkout time. I was very TEMPTED to ask if we could just stay for the entire day! (My hubby didn't permit me to do so, unfortunately)! I would definitely recommend this clean, cozy, comfy cottage for anybody who loves serenity and the beauty of the outdoors! It is quite close to the quaint stores in Ocean Springs, TaterNuts and shopping; however, we preferred just staying at the cottage and enjoying the comfort this cottage afforded to us! I will MOST DEFINITELY return again one day in the future! I can't say enough wonderful things about our weekend away! NICE - NICE - NICE
Very quiet and restful. Would hope to return when the weather is cooler and able to kayak down the Davis Bayou. Host and hostess were helpful with restaurant recommendations.
The property was well maintained and everything was ready at check in time. The fresh fruit and snacks were appreciated. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a relaxing weekend with some bayou adventure in a cooler time of the year.
The owner's home is in close proximity but allowed complete privacy. There are children in the neighborhood but no noise.
Enjoyed watching the squirrels and alligators in the bayou. Very few mosquitoes.
The place was everything we dreamed a log cabin should be. Very comfy & spacious. Our needs erreanticipated well.
We recently stayed at the Davis Bayou log cabin while looking for a home. It was nice to stay in a homey atmosphere. The owners were very accommodating & friendly. I would definitely recommend this place!
Loved our stay at the cabin. Very quiet and relaxing. Cabin was nicely stocked with breakfast items, fruit and coffee. We loved having access to the kayak and being able to explore the bayou.
We were a little disappointed, but overall it was a nice place to stay. Convenient to our needs. I would suggest if anyone is looking for a quiet get away, this would not be a good location. You are more part of a neighborhood; kids playing in the front yard, neighbors coming and going, lots of activity around. We were hoping for a quiet peaceful get away from people in general. The cabin is tastefully decorated, the scenery is nice, great vacation spot for someone with kids. In all fairness, we have a place in alaska, and are from denver, now residing in the northern houston area, in the country. Our expectations were greater than they should have been for Mississippi. I would recommend the stay to families in general
