Enjoy an event that has defined Bay St. Louis’s community spirit for the last twenty years: Second Saturday Art Walk. Main Street is lively all day with live music and shop specials, and from 4-8 the evening’s special events begin. Live music on the streets, art openings at galleries, restaurant specials and shops are open late - many serving refreshments.
Two businesses are highlighted each month. September’s featured Hot Spots are Bay Cottages (305 Main Street) and the Bay St. Louis Little Theater (398 Blaize Avenue).
Bay Cottages LLC vacation rental offers perfect location for your Old Town getaway. This historic registered 1920 stucco double is just steps from the shopping and dining of Main Street. Relax in either the “Southern Comfort” or the “Latitude Adjustment” suite surrounded by beautiful hardwood floors, beaded board walls and ceilings, and comfortable furnishings that provide a homey atmosphere for a few days, a week, or more. Enjoy the outdoors on the shared front porch or back deck.
Sit out front and watch the world go by, or take a walk to visit the variety of interesting shops, art galleries, restaurants, coffee shops and music venues within a few short blocks of our cottage. We are two blocks from the waterfront and less than one-half mile from the public beach and fishing pier, together with a walkway/bike path that goes for miles along the beach. We are also within a few minutes’ drive of a world-class golf course and several casinos.
Owners and Bay St. Louis residents Ronnie and Sandy Robert want to provide a place for visitors to live like locals, to enjoy the charm of our small town and friendly residents, and to find it hard to leave! The Roberts encourage guests to consider living in Bay St. Louis. They have succeeded, as many of their past guests now own homes in the area.
Both suites offer two bedrooms, one and one-half baths, fully equipped kitchens, laundry facilities, and off street parking. Bay Cottages is a prime location for families coming in for weddings, reunions, or just to have fun at one of the great festivals that take place throughout the year along the Gulf Coast. This is a great way to meet the residents and merchants of Bay St. Louis and to experience “A Place Apart.” The property is managed by Manieri Real Estate.
