Overview

Foley Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

This cabin is located directly on the Bon Secour River, in Bon Secour near Foley. Alabama. It is a stilted cabin, which looks out over a bend in the river where birds and wildlife abound. You can fish from the cabin's own dock or bring your boat and explore the river, Bon Secour Bay, Mobile Bay, the intracoastal waterway, or even the Gulf of Mexico. It's also a great river for kayaking.

Gulf Shores and Orange Beach are just minutes away if you need to get away from the tranquility of the cabin. Beaches, golf courses, shopping, outlet malls, nightlife, you name it. Even the Casinos of Biloxi and Gulfport are less than two hours away.

You can even go over to Pensacola Florida and watch the Blue Angeles at the Naval Air Station, only 40 minutes away. At this Bon Secour cabin, you can do as much or as little as you like.

The cabin has a full kitchen, living room with flat screen TV, plus a TV in the master. Cable included. Queen bed in the master, full size in the second bedroom. You can sit out on the porch overlooking the dock and river or go downstairs to enjoy the river from the porch swing, table and chairs and both a gas and charcoal grill. A boat ramp is located on site.

About Mike McBrayer

My partners and I love to fish. We love boating and just being on the water.

Mike McBrayer purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Mike McBrayer chose Foley

This is one very pretty little river. We travel down to the gulf coast constantly. Most of our locations tend to be on the beach or bay so when we happended upon this great place on this terrific river we had to get it. It would be our fishing cabin and we would treat our guest as fellow fishing buds.

What makes this cabin unique

The beach is nice but the Bon Secour River is really what rest and relaxation is all about. Just having the boat steps away is worth it all. Within minutes you can be catching fish or just cruising the river. Even kayaking up river into the fresh water to catch a bass or get a look at a gator. And world class dining is only a couple of miles away over at Tin Top. And of course all that beach stuff is just down the road.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I've been on a whirlwind trip since we left the cabin. I'm not even home yet. We went ATL to Narita, Japan, then I went to Seoul to pick up an airplane and fly it back to Guangzhou, China. The cabin was great! We'll be back in lower Alabama for part of the summer, and I hope that the cabin's available again so that we can stay there. We saw two dolphins swim by the cabin one evening. Too cool!!

We stayed here for 4 nights and enjoyed it very much! Close to the beach and attractions, but still quiet and peaceful!! The kids loved fishing off the pier, enjoyed the kayaks, and we had the pool all to ourselves!! The house was clean and had everything we needed!! The owner was easy to work and very nice! We look forward to stating here again!

Perfect time away

  • 5 of 5
I was looking for a stress free, calm, pretty and tranquil place to rest and relax. I sure found it! The accommodations were clean. The bed was comfortable. Sitting on the porch and watching the rain, ducks, turtles, birds and a few boats go by was perfect! Tin Roof in Bon Secour and Fish River Grill in Foley are great places to eat. Groceries are close by and everyone is very friendly. The owner is very nice to work with too! My grown kids came for a day and had a blast kayaking. The pool was clean and quiet. Great place- I will return!

Clean, quiet, very tranquil!

  • 5 of 5
From the moment we pulled in at sunset, we were in love! The cabin's deck and it's attached dock make make for a perfect view of the rising and setting sun! The cabin is in a quiet little setting just moments away from the main highway and close to anything you might want to do in Gulf Shores! We stayed with 4 adults and a 4 year old and couldn't have asked for a better place to be! We utilized the kitchen for multiple meals, as well as the gas grill below the cabin. Each morning, we would sit out on the deck to watch the sunrise and enjoy all nature had to offer! We saw dozens of turtles, fish, crabs, and my mom swears she saw a dolphin, too! The on-site pool is also great! Much better than being covered in sand! My only wish would be that the cabin would be big enough to bring more family down with us! :) We also recommend local eateries such as Tin Top Restaurant in Bon Secour, Chick and Sea Foods in Foley, and Doghouse Grille in Gulf Shores! We also recommend going on the Surf's Up Dolphin Cruise... talk about amazing! Don't get conned into staying in a condo on the beach that's 3x the price!! THIS is the way to truly experience Alabama! Thank you SO much to the owner for allowing us this amazing place to stay!

Very relaxing and tranquil

  • 5 of 5
What a great retreat! I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay near the beach. It's well appointed and ideally located on the Bon Secour River, isolated from the hustle and bustle of the tourist and beach areas, surrounded by natural beauty and peace and quiet. Very tranquil, yet only minutes away from a Target, Publix, movie theater, restaurants, etc., and only around 10 minutes from the beach. It's so relaxing a place to return to after spending a day at the beach amongst the crowds and traffic. Also, much more affordable than being right on the beach. It's really the best of all worlds. Can't wait to return! Thanks, Mike!

Very relaxing

  • 5 of 5
Have just returned from the most relaxing vacation we have ever had. The cabin is nice and clean with great views of the river. We had so much fun sitting on the deck overlooking the river watching the fish, turtles, dolphins and all different kinds of birds. There are plenty of restaurants and great shopping (grocery, outlet stores and boutiques plus Walmart and Target) nearby and the beach is about 6 miles away. Mike, the owner, was such a gracious host. He is warm, friendly and very accomodating. We will be returning and will give it a hearty recommendation to family and friends. Thanks, Mike for such a great vacation place.

Owner's Response: Hey Cheryle, you are making me blush. I'm so glad you had a great time come back as often as you can. So here is my frustration, almost every guest has told us about the dophins coming up to the dock yet we have never been there when that has happened. We have kayaked with them in the river but so far have not had the experience of seeing them from the balcony or the dock so I am so jealous of you. Thank you so much for staying with us!

Had a wonderful time!

  • 5 of 5
The cabin was just what we were looking for. The cabin was comfortable and quiet. We enjoyed sitting on the deck and just watching the river. You could see dolphins and turtles everyday depending on the time of day. Would stay there again and would recommend to friends and family. The owner Mike is very friendly and helpful.
