Carroll House Bed & Breakfast

304 Carroll Ave. , Bay St. Louis, MS 39520 USA (Show map)


Turn of the century elegance abounds throughout this beautifully restored historic home. Antique furnishings fill every room. Swing on the front porch and enjoy our gulf breezes. Roam through lavish gardens with secret hiding places to watch blue birds, Monarch butterflies, hummingbirds, or read a good book. Enjoy a full, gourmet breakfast on the back porch, or with new friends in the dining room over fine china. Stroll just 2 blocks to the beach for fun in the sun, romantic sunsets, or breathtaking sunrises. Ride a bike just 2 blocks to the quaint downtown area for shopping, art galleries, fine dining, live music, coffee shops and more. For those who are looking for more excitement, head over to Hollywood casino, or charter a deep sea fishing expedition.

Our recent stay at The Carroll House B&B in Bay St. Louis was wonderful. Little did I know that the hundreds of times I drove and walked past that house when I was young, growing up in Bay St. Louis, that someday I would sleep there or that beyond the lovely gardens in front and the welcoming front porch, is a beautiful old home with tall beadboard ceilings, deep crown and baseboard moldings, original pine floors and a screened in back porch. The combination of all the modern conveniences such as Sleep Number mattresses and fully equipped bathrooms made for a perfectly comfortable and cozy stay. Breakfast on fine china in the dining room was also delicious. We highly recommend The Carroll House when you are visiting in Bay St. Louis.

We stayed at the Master bedroom for one night from our return from Florida, we wish we could stay an extra night, hosts Jane and Kevin were very nice. The king bed was comfortable, the area around was lovely, we went to a town center for a dinner, the breakfast was delicious, the company an interesting mix of folks. We will stay here again, thank you Jane and Kevin for letting us stay at your place.

We were new to B&B, but will definitely be back, now that we have experienced the fine service and hospitality of Jane and Kevin. They were so nice, even after I accidentally pocketed the room key and took it home! Bay St. Louis was great too. So nice to be able to walk from our doorstep to the shops and restaurants.
