The Roost is a boutique hotel located in a beautifully restored historic building walking distance from both serene sunsets on the beach and eclectic downtown atmosphere. With stately live oaks surrounding the perimeter and wood accents preserved from the original property, it has been our mission to highlight this significantly historical landmark in the heart of Ocean Springs. Come Roost with us for a weekend, or a week. We are certain you will find yourself charmed by all this southern coastal town has to offer.
Ocean Springs offers visitors an array of naturalist art depicting the harmony between this enchanting town and its natural surroundings. Local artisans, including the late American master Walter Anderson, have long shared a passion for the serenity and beauty of our Gulf Coast and a desire to illustrate its importance to this area. We, at The Roost, share this vision and hope you will give us the opportunity to be part of your experience as you discover why the community of Ocean Springs is so strongly connected to its art and nature.
We look forward to helping you discover all that our area has to offer.

A visit to the Walter Anderson Museum of Art (WAMA), opened in 1991 in historic Ocean Springs, MS, is an enchanting and unique experience.
The museum is dedicated to Walter Inglis Anderson, American master, whose depictions of the plants, animals, and people of the Gulf Coast have placed him at the forefront of American painters of the Twentieth Century.
The Gulf Coast not only offers an inshore expience of a lifetime, but just offshore there is a beauiful site to see. The Gulf Coast is home to six barrier islands: Cat Island, Ship Island, Deer Island, Horn Island, Round Island and Petit Bois Island. Each island has something special to offer, so see ‘em all if you’ve got the time.
