    Carriage House 'the Sugar Shack', Old Town Bay Saint Louis

    Historic Bay St Louis cottage in Old Town with outdoor tennis court
    Located one block from the beach in the 'Old Town' section of Bay St. Louis. Also within walking distance of Old Town Bay St Louis boutiques, restaurants and all ages music venues. A playground that was donated to the children of Bay St. Louis after Hurricane Katrina is across the street along with a tennis court. Churches, antique shops, coffee shops, restaurants, pubs, art galleries and many unusual and interesting retail shops are all within two blocks of the cottage. Walking towns are nearly a thing of the past, but in 'Old Town' Bay St. Louis you can still walk anywhere you want to go and feel safe. It's a short drive to the Hollywood Casino and Bridges Golf Course, (an Arnold Palmer designed course). Also, a short drive to the Silver Slipper Casino with a famous Sunday champagne brunch. The second Saturday of every month, the merchants of 'Old Town' sponsor the Art Walk. They have bands and complimentary food and drinks. It's a great way to meet the locals and come to understand the uniqueness and friendliness of Bay St. Louis. Consider yourself warned: You may never want to leave the bay! (I never do) Second Saturday (as the locals call it) starts at 4:00 p.m. and ends at about 9:00 p.m. The Carriage House sits behind the main house that was built in 1903. The Carriage house was built shortly after that. It's constructed of solid concrete blocks, which give it a real European flair. It has two bedrooms and a bath upstairs and a kitchen/living combination downstairs. There is also a New Orleans style courtyard for your coffee in the morning or cocktails in the evening. Or you can just bask in the sun, listen to the birds, read a book and take in the wonderful gulf breezes. Whatever you choose, it's the perfect place to get away from all your woes and relax. For added interest: New Orleans is less than an hour away. There's a great children's museum 20 minutes away in Gulfport. An outlet mall 30 minutes away in Gulfport. Stennis Aerospace Museum 20 minutes away. We will be happy to guide you to any points of interest in the area. No one under 25 years of age without supervision. Children are welcome, but sorry no pets are allowed. Out of respect for our non smoking guests, there is no smoking allowed inside the cottage, but feel free to smoke in the courtyard.

      The Sugar Shack was exactly as expected. It was perfect for us--close to beach and restaurants and host was helpful and easily accessible with any questions we had.

            Cristobal Vacation!

            The Sugar Shack was a lovely place to stay. Perfect for the four of us. Kids loved being able to ride the bikes and we were just a block from the beach! Despite the fact that we showed up just before a tropical storm, we had a great time and my son and I were able to spend lots of time fishing the local piers while the wife hit every antique shop in town! Owners were great and we would definitely rent again!

            5/5 Excellent

              Great property and location

              Everything you want and need for a stay near the beach! Easy access, welcoming hosts, and nice accommodations. I hope to be visit again sometime soon.
