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.

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking to get away from it all, this is the place is for you! The cabin is lovely and very well stocked! The owner has thought of everything you may need for your stay. It is nestled at the back of a quiet neighborhood with the owners home next door. You still feel like you are in the middle of nature. The back porch overlooks the bayou which is just beautiful. Its the perfect place for having a cup of coffee in the morning. We saw lots of squirrels playing outside the back window. The cabin is close to everything in Ocean Springs and a short drive into Biloxi/Gulfport. We took the opportunity to take a day trip into New Orleans as it was only about 1 1/2 hours away. We rented this cabin with the intention of having some relaxation time and it was absolute perfection!

Great cabin

Great location close to Biloxi and Ocean Springs. The cabin was clean, spacious and very well equipped for short or long term stay. I would stay there again.

Enjoyed the calm of nature and tranquility of the bayou. Morning critters to greet outside.

  • 5 of 5

Nature was all around even though in a "subdivision". The bayou held us in awe of the peaceful beauty of the flowing water of the tides. The fish jumping, the fish jumping on the fishing hooks, the birds swooping around! Morning coffee was greeted by the squirrels, bees, raccoons, lizards, spiders, around the grounds not the porch! Location to the surrounding activities of the area was very nice. Easy to go into town and shopping as needed. The beach not far. Fishing tours a short drive into Biloxi for ours. Piers for fishing not far with one just over the bridge into Biloxi~bring your own gear and bait for that pier! Biloxi/Gulfport casinos a short drive. Numerous good seafood restaurants in Oceans Springs as well as Biloxi/Gulfport.

Great place to relax

  • 5 of 5

For a quiet relaxing getaway, you cannot beat this cabin. We took our kayaks down and enjoyed several days in the bayou checking out the gator. The back porch is the best place to wind down, relax, and watch the squirrels in the back yard. Great owners, friendly, and took care of a minor issue immediately. Nice quiet neighborhood and Ocean Springs has all sort of places to eat if you do not want to cook in this equipped cabin. We highly recommend a stay here and plan a return trip.
