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.

Beautiful, Peaceful Log Cabin

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 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!
