We are New Orleans natives that built a second home in 1998 in Bay St. Louis and retired there fulltime in 2004. We love saving and restoring old houses because of their charm and character. After losing our home to Katrina, we found and restored an old home a short distance from our original homesite to return to Bay St. Louis fulltime. We had purchased this cottage on Main Street in Old Town in 2004 to be a vacation rental and embarked on a total renovation. Hurricane Katrina interrupted that and required us to perform additional renovation work to complete the project. With the need for long-term housing, we rented the cottage to several locals waiting for their homes to be rebuilt. The cottage didn't go on the vacation rental market until late 2010 and has proven iteself as a comfortable home away. We are hoping to restore more old homes in Bay St. Louis.
