Overview

About the property

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.

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.

perfect spot for a couple

  • 5 of 5

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.

Amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great place to get away from it all!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a great three days in this sweet, rustic cabin. 9-10-17 to 9-13-17. Don't be afraid it's too far out. It's actually just a few minutes to downtown Ocean Springs. Very clean and comfortable. Fresh fruit on the dining table. We felt right at home. We have two small dogs and they loved the cool, clean tile floor. Easy to walk them in a very nice, safe neighborhood. Definitely 5 stars and we will stay again. Thanks, Wendy! It was lovely.
